Why Is There Water Surrounding My AC?

Monday, July 17th, 2017

question-markOne thing is for certain — it is hot out there! We have been busier than usual this summer, and unfortunately a lot of this has been due to the fact that we are out there fixing broken down air conditioners. With such incredible heat as we’ve been experiencing, this should really come as no surprise. Neither should the fact that it is always better to prevent repair needs to begin with, than to wait around and let problems develop to that point.

Of course, there is no such thing as a perfect air conditioning system, and even the best air conditioner that is the most well maintained is going to run into trouble from time to time. When that happens, we strongly recommend that you contact us at the very first sign of trouble. There are usually warning signs that something is amiss with any given system. One alarming sight that you may see is water surrounding your air conditioner in Queen Creek, AZ.

COOL ACT OF KINDNESS: Air conditioning company gives family new air conditioner, for free

Monday, July 10th, 2017

A woman and her elderly mother have been living the past few weeks without a working air conditioning unit. Thanks to a local business, they got some much needed relief Thursday.

With an Excessive Heat Warning in effect through Friday, the cold gift couldn’t have come at a better time.

“I know it was 97 to 100 in here,” said Susan Garcia. When the old air conditioning unit went out at her elderly mother’s home, Garcia said she didn’t know what she was going to do.

“Suffocating type feeling. You can’t drink enough water,” said Garcia, who is the caretaker for her 84-year-old mother. Her mother has dementia.

Susan, on a fixed income and not knowing where to turn, called the Salvation Army, and that got the ball rolling.

“Before you know it, Dale calls and he says my mom can have a new AC unit,” said Garcia. “I didn’t know where it was going to come from.”

“Dale” is Dale Steele with Goettl Air Conditioning.

“We just want to help out whenever we can,” said Steele. “Goettl’s been in the community for 78 years, and we believe in taking care of our neighbors.”

On Thursday, Goettl techs showed up to make sure Garcia and her mom can be comfortable at home, once again.

“In this type of weather when it’s so hot and a system is down and somebody has no cooling, it’s a serious issue,” said Steele. “It’s definitely a life support system in Arizona.”

“I believe it’s a godsend, because it’s been two weeks since the air’s been out, and my mother being elderly and she has dementia, she doesn’t understand what’s going on,” said Garcia. “I’m thanking God for this company. I’m thanking God for Dale because I didn’t know what to do.”

The new unit reportedly cost about $8,000, and Garcia said there is no way they would have been able to afford that on their own.

Goettl: There for Our Customers

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

As incredibly hot as this summer has been – and is continuing to be – a problem with one’s air conditioner is no laughing matter. Now imagine that you’ve not only encountered a problem with your air conditioning system, but that your 15 year old air conditioner has broken down entirely, and that replacement is your only option.

This is exactly the situation that a 75 year old resident found herself in just recently, and it is one that Goettl Air Conditioning helped Geraldine to resolve. Geraldine recently lost her husband of 16 years, and a full air conditioning replacement was not something that she was prepared for. We always are, though, which is why we donated the entire system and installed it for her ASAP. We believe in looking after our neighbors, especially during this time of the year when the heat of summer can be a legitimate threat to one’s safety.
