Dirty Air Filters Cause Heating Problems

Monday, January 1st, 2018

man-with-filterHeaters are mechanical systems,  and that means that occasional operating problems are inevitable. Routine heating maintenance will certainly help to keep any such problems to a minimum, but you are eventually going to require professional heating repairs in Phoenix, AZ.  The fact that our winter season is so mild does not mean that you can just ignore problems with your home heating system. While annual maintenance is a must, there is also one maintenance task that you should handle on your own, much more frequently than once a year.

That task? Changing your air filter. If you use a forced-air heater, such as a furnace or a heat pump, then you need to make sure you are keeping a fresh filter in that system at all times. Typically, it will need to be changed somewhere in the range of every 1-3 months. These filters are cheap and very simple to swap out, and the benefits of doing so as needed cannot be overlooked.

Why Schedule a Professional AC Tune-Up?

Monday, April 24th, 2017

question-markYou don’t need to be a meteorologist to realize that Arizona is home to pretty serious heat for much of the year. At the height of the summer season, the heat in this area can really be unbearable. Great air conditioning is much more of a necessity in our homes than a luxury.

Should I Clean My AC Ducts This Year?

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

opening-air-ductFor many areas in the country, the start of the summer season and the heat that it brings with it is still off in the distance. Here in Arizona, though, we’re already seeing temperatures reach into the nineties. You are no doubt already running your air conditioner at least semi-regularly. If so, we hope that you remember to have your system tuned up before throwing it back into regular use. Failure to do so can result in serious operational problems with your system, and the risk of potentially costly repair needs.

While you should have your system tuned up annually, you may also want to consider having your air ducts cleaned this summer. This is not a service that you’ll require every year, and it is not one that every homeowner is necessarily going to need. In certain situations, though, professional duct cleaning in Phoenix, AZ can prove to be beneficial. Consider the following information, and remember that you can count on our technicians for all of your indoor air quality service needs.

What Exactly Is a Swamp Cooler?

Monday, March 13th, 2017

man-with-electric-fanWe live in a very hot climate, obviously. That means that you not only need a great air conditioner that will reliably cool your home, but you also want one that won’t cost too much to run. After all, you don’t want to be draining your budget just to live comfortably.

Because we also live in a very dry climate, though, you really don’t want your air conditioner drying out the air in your home further. During the cooling process, as refrigerant evaporates and draws heat out of the air, moisture condenses and is drained away by a traditional AC. How do you prevent your air from drying out excessively? You could use a humidifier, or you could use an entirely different cooling process — one that actually helps you to add humidity to the air.
