Am I a Good Candidate for UV Germicidal Lights?

Friday, March 27th, 2015

While many homeowners are content with the ability to cool their homes effectively when the summer heat is upon them, and to heat their homes consistently when things finally cool off for the winter season, it is also important to keep the quality of the air in one’s home in mind. A number of different problems may prevail with the quality of air in any given home. As varied as the potential issues that you may encounter with your indoor air quality are, there is surely a system out there that suits your needs.

A multi-pronged approach may be necessary to bring your air quality up to ideal levels. One system which benefits many homeowners is the UV germicidal light. Here is some information from the IAQ pros at Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning which will help you to determine if a UV germicidal system installation is right for your home. 

UV germicidal lights work best when used in conjunction with other air quality systems, such as standard electronic air purifiers. This is because they do not filter the air in order to remove pollutants as it passes by. Instead, the purpose of UV germicidal lights is to destroy biological pollutants, such as viruses, mold, and bacteria, as they pass underneath. These pollutants are living entities, and could continue to reproduce and thrive on air filters if that is all that you used to cleanse the air. Because of this, any homeowners with concerns about biological pollutants are good candidates for UV germicidal lights.

While spots of mold in your home may suggest that a pollutant destruction-based air quality system is needed, there are other, more subtle signs that you may overlook. Aggravated allergy and asthma symptoms, may be the result of such pollutants. Ultimately, the only way to know for certain if UV germicidal lights are the right match for you is to work with a trained professional.

The installation of ultraviolet germicidal lamps must be completed by a qualified technician. Such devices are installed directly into air ducts, and must be placed strategically in order to ensure that all of the air passing by is treated. A UV germicidal light installation in Gilbert, AZ may be just what you need to get your air quality back on track.

If you use air ducts to distribute conditioned air throughout your home, and notice any of the warning signs mentioned above, contact Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning today.

How Does One Ensure High Efficiency Commercial Air Conditioning?

Friday, March 20th, 2015

Attempts to simply keep a commercial property cool and comfortable during the intense heat of our summer season can be challenging enough. Doing so in the most efficient manner possible is even more difficult. The good news is that the professional commercial air conditioning technicians at Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning are here to help. We know how important it is that you are able to cool your commercial property in an efficient and affordable way. That is why we have put together some tips and information intended to start you on the path towards more efficient commercial cooling. The severe nature of our summer weather can present a number of obstacles when it comes to efficient cooling. Our technicians are happy to help you achieve high efficiency commercial air conditioning in Phoenix, though. 

One obvious place to start in terms of boosting energy efficiency when cooling your commercial property is with your cooling system itself. Choosing your system wisely and ensuring that it is of the right size for your cooling needs will help you to cool your property efficiently at a very basic level. However, remember to consider alternatives to traditional air conditioners. Evaporative coolers, for example, can help commercial property owners to cool their buildings more efficiently. How? For starters, evaporate – or swamp – coolers do not rely upon a compressor to circulate coolant throughout the system. Significantly less electricity is consumed by such systems, then allowing for reduced energy costs. A silicon based cooling agent makes it possible for water to evaporate at lower temperatures than normal. Warm air passes over saturated pads in the cooler, and the water immediately evaporates. This allows for very prompt cooling, and a fan simply forces that air throughout the building.

Of course, you don’t necessarily need a brand new system in order to cool your commercial property more efficiently. Our energy efficiency services include insulation installation and replacements, duct sealing, and blower door testing services. If your ductwork is leaking, or insufficient insulation is allowing heat to force its way into your commercial property, it really doesn’t matter just how efficient your HVAC system is supposed to be: it will not work as intended. By improving upon such weak spots in your system and building, you can cut down on the amount of energy that you consume in keeping the environment cool and comfortable.

We have the answers you want and the services that you need to cut down on commercial cooling costs. Even better, you won’t have to sacrifice comfort at all in order to do so.

To learn more about how you can achieve high efficiency commercial air conditioning in Phoenix, just call Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning today.

Why Use the Aqua Chill System in Phoenix?

Friday, March 13th, 2015

When it comes to keeping your home cooled down during the intense Phoenix summers, you have more choices for air conditioning systems than you may think you do. The standard AC is no longer the sole option for cooling, and if you are looking for something different for home comfort that will provide you with pleasant indoor temperatures and energy savings through the summer, you should consider an Aqua Chill air conditioner.

To find out more about these energy-efficient solutions for hot climates, give Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning a call today. We provide Aqua Chill service in Phoenix, AZ and the surrounding areas.

What the Aqua Chill does and how it benefits you in

The Aqua Chill is an air conditioner that combines the cooling power of water with conventional refrigerant coils to make a system that is more energy-friendly than a conventional AC. The Aqua Chill pre-cools its refrigerant coils so they have an easier time removing heat from a home. It’s a basic addition—but it makes a huge difference, especially in a desert climate.

The main reason to consider using an Aqua Chill in a place like Phoenix is that these systems are specifically designed for extremely hot weather. A standard AC is manufactured to help with temperatures in the 82°F –95°F range. If you’ve spent even one summer in Phoenix, you will know the temperatures are usually above 100°F and can sometimes reach 120°F. You need an air conditioner with an extra edge over the heat in order to have maximum comfort, and an Aqua Chill can provide that for you.

An Aqua Chill will save you money as well because it requires less energy to absorb heat thanks to pre-cooling the coils. In some test cases, it can cut a home’s cooling bill by almost half. And, unlike swamp coolers, an Aqua Chill will not place any extra moisture into the indoor air that might lead to issues with mold, mildew, and bacteria.

If you think that you would like to have an Aqua Chill installed in your home, contact us today. These systems are not right for every house, and our skilled team will help you find out the best method for supplying your household with comfortable and energy-efficient cooling.

Never Neglect the Services That Your Ductwork Needs

Friday, March 6th, 2015

When you use a ducted forced air distribution system in order to deliver heated and cooled air throughout your home, you put an enormous amount of faith in your air ducts. After all, it is through these air ducts that all of the air that you pay to both heat and cool must travel. That is why you must take whatever steps are necessary in order to keep your ductwork in great working condition. To do so, just dial our number. The Goodyear duct services technicians here at Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning are here to help. Whatever sort of ductwork services you may need, count on our air duct service technicians to get them done with the quality of workmanship that the job demands.

One of the duct services that our team has to offer is professional duct cleaning. While not every home is necessarily going to require or benefit from duct cleaning, is it is a service that is of great value in certain situations. When dust, dirt, and other pollutants are allowed to build up within the ductwork of a home, for any reason, those air ducts can then distribute the pollutants throughout the entire house. Needless to say, this can really do some damage in terms of indoor air quality. By using special tools and vacuums, our technicians can see to it that your ductwork is thoroughly and effectively cleaned.

Leaky ductwork is one of the most common ways in which pollutants make their way into air ducts. It is also one of the major contributors to inefficiency and high heating and cooling costs. These leaks can be tough to pinpoint, though, because most of your air ducts are hidden from view. Professional duct testing allows for a trained professional to assess the condition of your air ducts, pinpointing trouble spots by using the information gathered. If your air ducts are leaking, we can complete quality duct sealing services as well. This is not something that you can hope to accomplish with a flashlight, your toolbox, and a roll of duct tape. Skip the ineffective, DIY service attempts, and let our duct service technicians get the job done right.

We specialize in duct services throughout the Goodyear area. When you work with us, you can count on getting the very best performance that your air ducts have to offer.

If you have any concerns at all about your air ducts, just let a member of the Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning team know today.
