When to service my Air Conditioning in Gilbert Arizona ?

Gilbert Arizona Air Conditioning Service

 

 

Air Conditioning Gilbert

 

This is a very good question we should all be asking ourselves as winter is quickly slipping behind us, with spring right around the corner and the extreme heat of our Desert Valley summers soon arriving. We at Air Care Gilbert Air Conditioning Service would like to keep everyone informed of how to be cool all year round in the comfort of your homes.

The answer is NOW!  You do need to be more attentive to servicing you’re A/C unit in Gilbert Arizona than in most other regions of the country and even surrounding areas.  You do not have to be an air conditioning expert to know and understand the significance of staying cool on our extreme dry desert heat, or even just as temperatures climb a little higher than is comfortable.  You do however; need an expert to tell you how to stay cool and comfortable all year round in our beautiful desert valley region.

Our A/C units in the Gilbert Arizona work more months, days and weeks of the year than any of our surrounding regions.  In addition they also work more hours in a day, eventually at peak they can sometimes seem to run nonstop keeping us cool and comfortable in our desert homes.  The best time to service is before the peak heat arrives, right now in February and March if you have not already done so after the hot summer ended last year.

We recommend a complete check, and all preventative maintenance performed on your cooling system this time of year so you can be prepared to go into our extreme summer heat with confidence.  Checking Freon levels and properly maintaining them, checking coils for cleanliness, keeping them free from debris, checking belts for dry rot and replacing if needed, checking wiring for corrosion or wear.  These are just a few things to have checked and maintained to keep your unit in prime condition and your home comfortable year round with minimal cost and inconvenience.

After having your check and maintenance done, schedule your next appointment before the technician leaves, thereby ensuring your unit will continue to be well maintained and in its best condition providing you cool air year through the arduous summer heat here in our peaceful desert valley.

It is much more cost effective to service your A/C unit, rather than doing  air conditioning repair Gilbert  after a complete collapse and shutdown.  Identifying problems before they occur and often times nipping them in the bud can prevent breakdowns which may require major parts or even whole unit replacement.

Maintaining your A/C unit, will have it prepared to serve your cooling needs when the demands become so extreme that it very seldom gets a break.  You will be relaxing in the comfort of your home, while those less prepared are waiting for a technician to arrive as they are uncomfortable in their home or even staying elsewhere until costly repairs are made.

Heating Units turn on as Scottsdale Arizona sees snow

Scottsdale AZ Heating

 

 

Scottsdale Arizona today heating units are turning on with temperatures in the 3o’s and 40′s. Here at Air Care Cooling & Heating we continue to work late into the night servicing customers in Phoenix, Mesa Gilbert, Chandler, and Scottsdale. It seems the east valley was hit harder according to the majority of service calls coming in.

 

Indian bend and the  free way loop 101 in Scottsdale is where I was when the snow started to fall. The freeway almost came to a complete stop since most motorist in Arizona are not used to the snow. At that point I new we would be swamped with service calls for Heating repair. Snow, hale and rain we are always on the job working to serve our customers. This will probably be the last major blast of cold weather. Soon the air conditioner will be on and the summer heat will be here before we know it.

 

We recommend getting a preseason maintenance inspection we currently have special off season prices going on right now. Also now is really good time to look into replacing your old inefficient heating and cooling system, with a new energy saving, high seer unit. Shoot us a email or give us a call to schedule your no cost in home estimate.

 

Air Conditioning Crane Falls on Home in Phoenix Arizona

 

Air Conditioning Crane Phoenix Arizona

 

air conditioning phoenix

 

Phoenix AZ –News crews report today about a phoenix air conditioning crane  falling  on a homes roof, while a ac company was trying to install a new unit.  The home owners whose names are reported to be  Gabriel and Gloria Escamillio,  they have lived at that location for more than 30 years.  In a older neighborhood as you look around most surrounding air conditioning’s have already been replaced with out incident . This just a case of  a freak accident. With a large hole now in their home. The fire marshal has made it clear that no one may enter the home until a structural engineer is able to to inspect the home.  They will be staying with friends till repairs can be made.

 

It was a problem with the crane that actually caused the accident, one of the joint connections of the crane’s boom had failed causing the air conditioning unit to come crashing on to the Escamillio’s roof top.  Smiley crane was the crane performing the ac lift. Normally crane companies carry insurance for accidents like this. All crane companies inspect their crane’s before leaving the yard for the day. For common problems with air conditioning cranes their is a alarm the sounds. This seems like just something snapped and could not have been prevented. Crane accidents are very rare in the air conditioning industry despite the frequency of use of cranes. The safety record is pretty remarkable.

 

The good news in the whole incident is that no one got injured . Luckily all the damage should be repairable, the only problem is securing the gaping whole in the roof before it rains. The weather forecast does call for rain later in the week. Hopefully it can be secured before rain hits to prevent further lost to the home, as if a hole in your roof isn’t bad enough water damage would be devastating.

Gilbert Air Conditioning Upgrade

 

Gilbert Air Conditioning Upgrade from a Regular Thermostat to a Programmable Thermostat

Air Conditioning Gilbert Thermostat

Old Style T- Stat

Have you been considering upgrading to a programmable thermostat on your air conditioning unit?  Have you been hearing the buzz about programmable thermostats for air conditioning in Gilbert AZ?  Wonder what the big deal is?  Or maybe you are just now hearing about programmable thermostats.  Is it right for you?  How can you know for certain?  The secret of programmable thermostat options are about to be revealed.

The first big step in thermostats came when they went digital versus manual.  Almost everyone now has digital and if you are one of those who made this change, versus someone who has always had digital, you know the distinct benefits and precision that comes with a digital thermostat.  The step from regular (digital) to programmable is more of a leap than a mere step, taking you into a world of programming and commands much like owning a long distance remote control for your home Air Conditioning unit.

Imagine if you will, as you are on the plane to your distant business meeting for the next couple of days, or looking over the rails of your cruise ship, or just on your way to work in the morning transit and being able to send your commands to your thermostat to conserve power while you are gone, or even to send it instructions as you are returning home so your home can be the perfect temperature when you enter after being away.

This description of the long distant remote paints a perfect picture of the benefits of a programmable thermostat; however, it works even better than that.  With the programmable thermostat you can preset all of these instructions and have no reason for the long distant remote, providing you with peace of mind while you are gone so you can focus completely on your business meeting, your vacation, your workday or whatever you may be doing.

New Style T-Stat Air Conditioner Gilbert

Programmable Touch Screen T-Stat

With a Regular Thermostat, you have to manually change the temperature to a lower preset if you want to conserve power while you are away, lowering it or raising it based on the current season.  Then when you arrive home it will be cooler or warmer than is actually comfortable for your in home experience.  So, you arrive home, manually change the thermostat for your optimal at home settings and wait uncomfortably until that temperature is arrived at.  Oftentimes, you can forget to manually change the temperature before leaving your home and realize that it is costing you a fortune while you are away to cool or heat your home and there is nothing you can do about it.

With the Programmable Thermostat, as long as it’s installed by licensed heating & cooling company, it can be preset to raise or lower the temperature settings for your home for a regular daily experience or even long term when you will be away for more extended periods of time.  Providing you not only with savings, but also ensuring your home is already the optimal temperature when you arrive home, never experiencing discomfort.  A Programmable Thermostat can provide peace of mind, great savings and comfort.  Isn’t it time for you to consider investing in a Programmable Thermostat and owning peace of mind and comfort in your home?  For more info on upgrading your thermostat, contact your local contractor for air conditioning in Gilbert Arizona visit http://www.aircareaz.com/

What a good Phoenix air conditioning repair company should be.

Quality Air Conditioning Phoenix AZ

 

Quality air conditioning phoenix

Well the first thing I look for when dealing with  Phoenix Air conditioning repair company, well any company for that matter, is who can vouch for them. Whether it be a live person like a neighbor, a friend at work, a family member or who ever you may know. The second thing I try to look at is their reputation with organizations such as the BBB, The Arizona Registrar of Contractors, if they’re an APS and/ or SRP certified contractor and all other such organizations. If they are not a good air conditioning and heating company just this process alone should steer you away from them.

 

The next thing I look for is how they handle emergency situations. After all, don’t you think that should be a quality air conditioning company’s top priority? We at Air Care have built our business around this belief of fast same day service. The heating & cooling company you are looking for should offer same day repair service. I actually mean come out and perform repairs that same day not just advertise it and not practice it. They should be available to their customers 7 days a week all year long. There are many HVAC contractors in Phoenix Arizona who claim 7 day service but don’t answer their phones on the weekends. I say what a lie and a disgrace.  Another important factor is do they stick to what they say, for example: If the AC company says they will at your home between 12 and 2 pm. Do they arrive at that time? Do they call ahead to make sure your home? This is a really important indicator because if they can’t even get that rite what would you expect from the rest of their service.

 

Once the tech is at a customer’s home some of things you should expect to see are, a proper introduction and a announcement of where he’s from. He should be wearing proper attire with the company name clearly visible on his uniform. He should then properly diagnose what your air conditioner repair is. He should then clearly and accurately explain what the types of repairs are required. The technician should then go on to explain what the cost for the air conditioning repairs are. Then go over the payment options with customer to ensure the transaction will be completed.

 

The professional Phoenix air conditioning repair company’s tech should then proceed to complete the repairs. After the repairs are completed and the entire work area is cleaned, the tech should finish the repair with a proper temperature check of all vents in the home to ensure proper cooling is achieved. There should be a receipt explaining all repairs that were done and any additional items or service’s the may be needed or recommended.

 

Quality AC Repair Phoenix AZ

This will bring a end to the air conditioning repair and the customer should be feeling really good and satisfied at this point. The customer should feel their money for their repair was well spent. The customer should be more than willing to refer the quality air conditioning outfit to any one of their friend or family members.

This is the way Air Care Cooling & Heating LLC. conducts business and is the reason for being one of the highest rated phoenix air conditioning company’s around.

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.

SOME QUICK WINTER MAINTENANCE TIPS:

  •  If you have a swamp cooler and haven’t done so NOW is the time to winterize cover or remove all pads, shut off water supply and drain water. Remove belt store indoors and shut off all power to the unit.
  • If your water heater is located out doors or in a garage or any where that’s not heated you can reduce you energy use on it by up to 40% by getting a water heater jacket from home depot usually about $29.00.
  • Keep your garbage disposal running good for the holidays freeze white vinegar in ice cube trays, then use the ice cubes to grind in disposal.This will sharpen the blades and kill any extra bacteria growth, for maintenance use orange peel to grind.
