Monday, September 11th, 2017

AC-techniciansFor those of us that have made Arizona our home, high temperatures are a part of daily life. Just because we choose to live in this climate, of course, does not mean that we are immune to the discomfort that the heat can cause. Even those of us that can appreciate the heat of summer the most need to be able to keep cool and healthy. That is why running into trouble with our air conditioning systems is so alarming in this area.

Remember, an air conditioner does not — and really should not — need to break down entirely before the homeowner takes the initiative to schedule service.

AC Tip: Keep the Filter Fresh

Monday, August 14th, 2017

Air-filterQuick — what’s the best way in which to keep your air conditioner in the best working condition possible? If you answered “with routine air conditioning maintenance,” then you are correct! What if we asked you what role you yourself should be playing in the maintenance of your air conditioning system, though? Yes, you should leave the bulk of this to your AC tune-up technician. However, there is one vital step that must be completed much more frequently than once a year during this tune-up.

That step? Replacing the air filter in your air conditioner. If you really want your air conditioner in Maricopa, AZ to function at peak performance and efficiency levels — which we can safely assume is the case — then you are going to need to keep a clean filter in the system. While it may not seem like that major a component, the air filter in your air conditioner can have a very negative impact on your system at large if it is not kept fresh.

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.

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.

Gamst spoke with KSNV NBC on the busiest day of the year so far for air conditioning contractors. With the heat in Las Vegas topping 110˚ regularly, Stephen had to admit that, while he hates to say it, “we weren’t able to get to all the people that called today”.

Keeping your AC in great working condition and acting quickly when you notice issues such as a noisy operation will help to keep your system functioning properly. Check out the video for a few tips on what you can do, including cleaning your air filter and scheduling routine maintenance service.
