If you live in Idaho, you know that reliable heating is critical in the colder months. High-efficiency boilers can be an excellent way to heat your Fruitland, ID home, whether you rely on natural gas or heating oil as your source of energy.
If you use a residential boiler system and begin noticing things like deep rumbling noises or inconsistent heat, you may want to check your pilot light or thermostat. If you can’t see an easy fix, be sure to call our trained experts at Rocky Mountain Mechanical. We would be happy to come out and inspect your boiler system for pressure valve malfunctions or other common problems and provide repair services.
However, if you are using an older boiler, say more than 10 years old, it may be worth it to purchase a new one. You will recoup much of your initial investment in energy savings. Studies show that older boilers may be only 50 percent efficient, wasting half the energy you purchase, while the best systems available today can be up to 98 percent efficient.
Call Rocky Mountain Mechanical at 208-365-7473 for more details. Our team can provide guidance on the best residential boiler for your home based on your local climate, the size of your residence, and your family’s unique needs. Request boiler service online today.
If you have regular battles over the thermostat setting in your house, you may want to consider investing in a ductless heating and cooling system for particular rooms in your Fruitland, ID home. Ductless systems work by providing climate control to a particular room or space.
Since ductless systems do not use your Idaho home’s ductwork system, you can save the energy often lost while heated and cooled air travels from room to room via air ducts. In addition, only a small hole connecting the indoor and outdoor units is required in order to install a unit, which makes installations very straightforward.
Our team at Rocky Mountain Mechanical recommends installing a ductless unit in spare rooms such as sun porches or attic bedrooms as well as in rooms where family members might prefer different temperatures. A ductless system can help balance heating and cooling throughout your home as well.
Compared with traditional heating and cooling systems, the upfront costs associated with a ductless may be a bit more. You will recoup some of the cost through reduced energy bills, so don’t let this prevent you from exploring this option if you are interested.
When the mercury falls here in Idaho, you will want a reliable and functioning furnace to keep your home warm. If you happen to be building a new home or creating a large addition, you may be looking for the best heating solution to install. Owners of older homes may need to replace aging furnaces to gain efficiency or eliminate costly repairs.
Although furnaces have been around for a century, there are many different designs, fuel sources, and sizes available today. Sorting through all the features, price points, sizes, and designs can be overwhelming. Our team at Rocky Mountain Mechanical can go over all the different furnace options available on the market today to help you make the best decision for your budget and lifestyle.
Our trained professionals can look at your Fruitland, ID home’s size, design layout, and construction material, as well as the local climate, to recommend the optimum furnace for your situation. It’s important you select the proper sized furnace to generate enough heat on extremely cold days while not wasting energy on a regular basis.
Once you invest in a new furnace, it’s important to maintain it regularly to keep it up and running year after year. Solid maintenance will also help you extend the life of your new investment.
Do you dream about cuddling up to a cozy wood fire but just can’t justify the cost and the mess? A residential gas fireplace may be just right for you. Gone are the days of weak blue flames that never really fooled anyone.Take a look at what these low-maintenance fireplaces offer you and your family in Idaho.
You can expect a gas fireplace to offer almost all of the same perks a wood-burning fireplace provides with a fraction of the energy and time it takes to run a wood fireplace. While some people will always love specific aspects of a wood-burning unit, the simple truth is many people do not have the time to set up and maintain wood-burning fireplaces anymore.
A gas fireplace, on the other hand, can be turned on and off with a flick of a switch. The chimney will never need sweeping out, nor will you need to split wood to have your cozy atmosphere. Best of all, the newer models highly resemble a wood fireplace.
While you can complete many do-it-yourself (DIY) Fruitland, ID home projects yourself, we highly recommend you get professional help even with the simpler gas fireplace kits that are on the market. When you are ready to consider your options and move on a gas fireplace, our professionals at Rocky Mountain Mechanical are just a phone call away at 208-365-7473.

Geothermal Heat Pumps
Reevaluating your heating and cooling system can seem to be a fruitless exercise between units that all seem the same. Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems may appear to promise the same things at roughly the same costs. Why change something that worked in the past in your Fruitland, ID home?
Depending on your home and location, a residential geothermal heat pump could dramatically cut your energy costs, ramp up your home efficiency, and reduce your home’s noise levels. These innovative units transfer heat from the ground where the temperatures do not fluctuate as much into your home. This unique setup leverages clean, renewable energy in ways that are simple to use on an everyday basis.
Before you fall in love with the idea of a geothermal system, be sure that your Idaho home is able to have one installed. This is highly dependent on location. In addition, geothermal systems may require a higher initial investment depending on your needs.
However, generally speaking, a geothermal heating and cooling system will cost much less to maintain and use than other HVAC options. If you purchase a geothermal furnace that also functions as a water heater, you may save even more. Remember to take into account your long-term goals and plan accordingly.
Our qualified professionals at Rocky Mountain Mechanical are ready and waiting to help you decide what is best for your needs—give us a call at 208-365-7473. Request geothermal heat pump service online today
Heat pumps are an energy-efficient alternative to conventionally heating and cooling your Fruitland, ID home. Instead of creating their own heat to warm up your home, heat pumps simply take heat from outside and pump it into your indoor space in the winter. During the hot summer months, the heat pump does the opposite: it pumps the heat from inside your home to outside, resulting in a cooler indoor climate.
Heat pumps are an efficient and cost-effective way to provide the heating and cooling you need in Idaho. In some cases, heat pumps may cost much less than what you would be paying to run a conventional heating and cooling system.
Talk with us at Rocky Mountain Mechanical to learn about air-source heat pumps, which are the most common type of heat pump. These typically use much less electricity than is required by furnaces and baseboard heating options.
Although heat pumps were originally designed for homes in moderate climates, developments in technology have made heat pumps great options for homes in colder climates as well. Ask us about ductless, or mini-split, heat pumps. They are perfect for homes without ductwork.
Call our team of professionals at Rocky Mountain Mechanical at 208-365-7473 . Our heating and cooling experts can provide additional information about heat pumps and help you determine if they would be a good solution for your home. Request heat pump service online today.

Conventional heating systems such as radiators, baseboard heating, and furnaces consume a great deal of energy in Idaho. One reason is because these units need to be heated to a high temperature in order for the surrounding air to be brought to a comfortable temperature. For example, a radiator often needs to reach 150 degrees to provide room temperature heat.
Rocky Mountain Mechanical now offers a more energy-efficient alternative: radiant floor heating. In this system, an electric-based or water-based network is installed under your Fruitland, ID home’s flooring. This system only needs to be heated to about 84 degrees to provide average heat to your living space.
Radiant floor heating is easy to run, simple to maintain, and eliminates much of the traditional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment typically needed in your home. This frees up space and gives you flexibility for innovative interior design.
Ideally, radiant floor heating is installed when you build a new home. If you are retrofitting a current home, you may incur significant installation costs as well as inconvenience as your flooring will need to be lifted up and perhaps replaced in order for this heating system to be added. Radiant floor heating will also increase the level of your home’s flooring.
Contact Rocky Mountain Mechanical at 208-365-7473 for more details. Our trained professionals can provide all the information for you to make an informed decision. Request radiant floor heating service online today.
You may have had to deal with the unfortunate cold shower or the inability to run your dishwasher or laundry at the time you wanted to do it. The hot water you wanted was simply not there.

Tank water heaters are still the most common, particularly in older homes. These are the type that may have run out of hot water while in use in the past in your Idaho home. Generally, these are heated by electricity, oil, or gas.
On the other hand, tankless water heaters heat up water exactly when you want it, on demand, regardless of how much or how little you need. You are also freed from the necessity of continually heating a large tank of water in your Fruitland, ID home. In addition to using traditional energy means to fuel these heaters, they can also utilize other alternative sources of energy such as geothermal, solar, and more.
When you are ready to update your home’s water heating solutions, whether it is a replacement, repair, or maintenance, our team at Rocky Mountain Mechanical is always here for you—give us a call at 208-365-7473. Request water heater service online today.
Zone Control Systems
Have you ever envisioned imaginary dollar bills just floating out of your home when you think about cooling or heating rooms not in use? This is actually what figuratively happens when there are specific parts of your Fruitland, ID home you don not use much but still heat and cool. Ideally, the rooms you are currently using are comfortable while the rest of your home is conserving energy. Up until recently, that was a difficult goal to achieve.
However, zone control systems are available today that allow you to do a better job of customizing your temperatures. Part of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, a zone control system allows you to operate several thermostats, each controlling the temperature of a different zone of your home. A zone control system automatically opens and closes the appropriate dampers to direct heating or cooling just where you want it in your Idaho home.
Our team at Rocky Mountain Mechanical can provide more details and share the cost savings you can expect by installing a zone control system. Our trained professionals are well-versed in how to properly install, repair, and maintain a zone control system so it works effectively with your current HVAC system.
