Duct cleaning & heating repair in mesa

 

Did you know that this winter so far has produced the coldest days within the last 3 years. Heating cost have sky rocketed in the last week and heating units have been working overtime. Your heating cost in an average home has a total annual usage of 14% ! One of the main suggestions for helping reduce utility costs are to check your ducts. They say you should check to ensure that as much warm air as possible is being delivered to your central system. Also check to ensure you have no leaks or even any blockage going on. Also having your bi-annual check up done is another recommendation for helping reduce your heating costs. Heating repair in Mesa Arizona is expensive but cost is greatly reduced with a regular checkup

             Not only is winter a good time to start thinking about having your ducts cleaned, but it is a good time to have your provider out to check other issues that raise your utility costs. For instance having your system checked to ensure you have no air leaks in the duct and ventilation system can prevent any problems from occurring than to wait until something goes wrong and have to fix them, which will be a headache not only for you but your wallet. Did you know that the amount of air lost while being transported from your furnace through your duct work to the vents is almost 30%. Not only getting your air leaks sealed can help you feel more warmth coming into your home but it also plays another factor in help with the efficiency of your heating and cooling system.

              Duct cleaning is a must when it comes to your yearly maintenance. Like a daily chore it needs to be cleaned. Just because you don’t think about it doesn’t mean it wont have an effect on the air your breathing. The duct system is the heart of your system, which means if its not functioning correctly it effects your whole system. A typical duct system looses 25% to 40% of the heating and cooling energy of your home system. One way your air ducts loose energy is by an air leakage. An air leakage is a poorly connected duct system or accidental holes in the ducts. The energy it takes to make up for the leakage not only adds to your bill, but it takes more energy to heat the cold air than it would if the ducts were clean and circulating properly. Therefore the cold air will pull out and the warm air will come in making your system put in more work than its actually putting out. Aside from energy loss it can become a health problem.

                 Allergies are a big factor of having your ducts cleaned. The air your breathing inside may be worse than the air your breathing outside if you have dirty ducts. Its surprising how dirty they can get. They can get anywhere from pet hair to mold, from fumes from the insulation particles and households chemicals. Sealing your ducts helps stop the pollutants from entering your home. This has a bigger effect with those who already have allergy problems. Especially with a basement or a garage, the fumes that return from a leaky air duct can bring in gas fumes which are very hazardous for they may contain carbon monoxide. Which is a big factor when it comes to the air you and your loved ones will be breathing in. It could also bring musty odors into your home. Cleaning your filters is another step in maintaining your system. Keeping your air filters clean also helps keep up proper air quality in your home. It is important to keep your filters clean because it helps keep out the germs and dust from entering you air system. Its very easy to maintain your filters also they air very cheap. I buy my filters for air conditioning mesa at the local home depot. By keeping up with the filters you can prolongs the lifetime of your Heating / Air conditioning system. If they look dirty they need to be cleaned. Some filters may be reusable and there are some that are disposable and may need to be replaced, if that is the case get the type of filters and let your provider know so they can get that taken care of for you. In addition to your air ducts and filter cleaning your condensing and evaporator coils is another good way to keep your system running properly. It doesn’t necessarily effect the air quality in your home but it does have an effect on how your system will perform. Cleaning the condenser coils and evaporator coils are basic maintenance that should be cleaned as if it were to clean your kitchen floor. This cleaning is not of the easiest among others, whether its in a tight dark spot, or 20feet up ahead it is still there and still needs to be taken care of. That’s part of the cleansing like your ducts, when you have your service maintenenced on.

               So if your not wanting to spend thousands of dollars worth to get a new a.c unit then it may be time to get the proper maintenance that is available for you. Just remember to think about your air ducts, filters, and coils as they may be building up not only dust, germs and fumes, they’re also building you up for a monthly price that can be preventable with your basic yearly maintenance.

Heating in Gilbert Arizona

Heating and Air Conditioning Maintenance Gilbert, Arizona

In Phoenix Arizona the winter’s are normally pretty mild sometimes getting below the freezing point. Well for the last four days we have hit those low temps. Temperatures being in the 20′s at night brrrrr  the 50′s is good with me . It’s kinda funny here in Gilbert air conditioning or heater season  when temps rise or  drop like they have every one turns their heating and cooling system on , some for the very first time of the season. Well its winter and some get a surprise , NO HEAT ! That is when every one gets on the phone calling their local heating and cooling company which hopefully is Air Care Cooling & Heating.

 

 

This is why Air Care always try’s to stress to get your air conditioning and heating check up before the extreme weather comes. We do this for two main reasons. The first reason being that it is a heck of a lot cheaper and easier to fix small and less expensive items on a check up than if you have a brake down and have to repair bigger more expensive parts. All of Air Care’s maintenance agreement customers can vouch for this practice. Just about every maintenance agreement customer I have ever talked to and asked how they like the maintenance plan, they all have commented that they enjoy the trouble free summer’s and winters. For the most part they are trouble free but remember we are talking about machines so anything can happen at any time. The second reason is that if every one, no lets say half of all the people in metropolitan phoenix area call for heating service at the same time it will take days if not weeks for all heating and cooling contractors as a whole to get everyone taken care of. What that will entail is some people having to wait to get there air fixed and sitting in a cold home.

 

 

So I guess the message we’re trying to get across is do your heating maintenance check up and don’t be left in the cold without heat or a poorly running heater. A heating maintenance check up will actually save you money not cost you money, although you do initially pay for you heater check up. A proper COMPLETE heating check up will unveil many underlying problems that rob energy and once corrected will be saving you a good chunk of money. Unless of course you enjoy giving away free money to SRP and APS power companies… nah I didn’t think so. Some of the most common issues are loosing heated air through loose or unsealed duct work. Restricted coil or air flow. Low or incorrect freon level. Those are some the most common there is about 25 or so different things we check.  If you need further detail please give us a call .You may check on our air conditioning & heating maintenance page for more details.
