Aeroseal Arizona Duct Sealing

 

Air Care Cooling & Heating LLC. is  now offering a FREE 5 year maintenance plan when you purchase a Aeroseal duct sealing. Aeroseal is the number 1 thing you can do in you home to help your air conditioning run more efficient. In Arizona the average home has  many leaks in the duct work even on a new home.  The average Arizona household has enough leaks in the duct work to add up to equivalent  of a hole that is 70 inches across. After the Arizona Aeroseal  duct sealing process is complete that 70 inch hole is shrunk down to a hole that measures 5 inches or less.

 

The Aeroseal process is recognized by all major utility company’s including APS, SRP and South West Gas.  They are also giving out rebates if you get the duct sealing in your home. Even the federal government recognizes Aeroseal as major energy saving process.  You may even qualify to get a tax rebate from the government when you combine Aeroseal with a new air conditioner.

 

We start the job by doing a pre seal test to see exactly what the leakage is before we actually do the sealing. We do this test on all existing AC units that are connected to existing duct work. After the Aeroseal job is complete we perform another test to see the actual reduction in leak s. So that way we verify the effectiveness of the service. The service comes with a 10 year guarantee on the sealing that is backed by the Aeroseal corporate.

 

Air Care and Tim McKenzie recommend Aeroseal to everyone who has central air conditioning in Arizona but it is major factor when purchasing a new high efficiency air conditioner.  If you purchase a 20 seer unit air conditioning unit you be putting out 20 seer efficiency AT THE AC UNIT but if your ducts are leaking you WILL NOT have 20 seer efficiency in the home.

Maybe, you are considering owning a Rheem Air Conditioning Unit and have been wise enough to look up your repair options prior to purchase and installation.  This article will provide you with a basic snapshot to make the most prudent choices pertaining to repairs to your already installed Rheem Unit or guide you further in determining the best choice for an Air Condition Unit for your home.

 

          All Rheem Air Conditioners come with a warranty and should be registered on line at www.rheem.com   The Rheem warranties are very detailed and specific for Classic and Value versus Prestige Series and even some aspects are covered for five years and others for 10 years.  Basically though it is 10 yrs conditional parts and compressor warranties, and 5 yrs limited parts warranties.  10 yrs limited on all coils.  So, at risk of repeating, I will say it again that it is best to print out and have available the details specific to your model so you can be completely aware of what is and is not covered by your warranty.

 

          Additionally you may have purchased the Protection Plus Extended Service Protection (PPESP).  This plan is a very extensive plan as it states in its name and for the number of years specified in your personal plan it will cover ALL parts and, ALL labor.  If you are just purchasing and installing a new Rheem Air Conditioning Unit consider asking your Rheem certified installer about this plan to ensure you can relax and stay cool for years to come worry free.

 

          It is always best to call a service technician at the first sign or sound of problems and difficulties with your Rheem Air Conditioning unit.  It usually costs less and has less impact on your comfort if you call earlier rather than later.  Also, make sure that you have a technician check and do routine maintenance on your Rheem Air Conditioning Unit at least annually or more often if it is recommended for your specific unit.   A little bit of routine care is so much better than the costly expense of both money and inconvenience of system break downs.

 

          Despite all of your diligence it seems you are in need of air conditioning repair for your Rheem A/C Unit, follow these simple instructions and be relaxing in the cool air sooner rather than later.  After checking your warranty information, gather together your model number, unit ID number and as much specific information as to what is happening and or not happening with your unit, then call a certified Rheem technician.  Yes, it MUST be a Rheem dealer and technician, the nearest one in Phoenix Arizona is Air Care Cooling & Heating LLC.  Your local technician will use Rheem specific parts and have your system up and running and keeping you cool and ensuring that your warranty is still intact or if it is past warranty can assist you in determining if it is best to repair or replace your current unit.  Follow these simple steps and keep you and your family cool through the extreme heat of our extended summer heat in the Phoenix Desert Valley and your Arizona Rheem Air Conditioning Unit running as efficiently as it is designed to run..

The Importance of Keeping Air Conditioner Coils Clean

In harsh climates like Tempe Arizona, air conditioners can struggle with the heat and dust, making even great air conditioning systems suffer shorter lifespans.  The key to keeping your air conditioning unit running without issue is routine maintenance by a local air conditioning company such as Air Care Cooling & Heating LLC.  One of the most important forms of maintenance on your unit is cleaning the air conditioning coils.  Keeping the air conditioning coils clean can do a lot to keeping your home or business AC unit running without issue.

Over time, dirt and grime will build up on your air conditioning coils, making it hard for your system to run properly.  What most may not understand is that the air conditioner doesn’t actually cool your home, but rather, it removes hot air from it.  When air conditioning coils get dirty, the dirt and grime create an insulating effect, covering the coils and creating a barrier.  This barrier prevents the coils from transferring the heat properly and thus lowers your air conditioner’s efficiency.  

More serious maintenance issues can arise if your air conditioning coils are not kept clean.  The reduced airflow caused by insulated, dirty coils can result in hot air getting stuck in the compressor.  If that happens, it can eventually cause severe damage to your air conditioning unit that will require a lot more than a simple cleaning check.  Preventative measures like cleaning your air conditioning coils will not only help your AC unit run on less energy, it will also avert unwanted repairs or the need for air conditioning replacement.

Perhaps the best time to look at getting your air conditioning unit cleaned and maintained is spring, before you have had to turn on or use your AC unit.  This allows your Tempe air conditioning service company to look over your condenser, fixing any problems that it might have, and cleaning the coils before energy is lost or severe damage is done.  Cleaning the air conditioning coils in spring will also ensure that your air conditioning unit is ready for the hot summer ahead.

Once you have had your air conditioning coils cleaned, the best way to keep them from getting grimy fast is by removing anything in the area of your condenser that can damage or dirty the air conditioning coils.  For instance, many of us forget and mow or weed-eat with grass clippings flying towards our AC units.  Instead, make sure than any grass trimmed around your outside unit is directed away from it or collected in an attached bag.  Trees and hedges should be trimmed back, with at least two feet around the air conditioning unit to keep leaves and twigs out and allow for adequate airflow around the condenser. 

By performing just a few routine checks before the summer and adjusting the area around your AC unit, coils can stay cleaner throughout the summer, providing you with a cool home without using a lot of energy.

How to Avoid Costly Air Conditioning Repair on your Chandler Air Conditioning

 

The Chandler Arizona desert breezes and wind can be enjoyable, cooling things off and lowering temperatures.  However, as much as you may be saving on your air conditioning bill today while the wind blows, it could be costing a fortune later on without proper and timely action.

Did you know the winds and strong breezes are stirring up the dust, dirt and sand and it goes indiscriminately to places we often pay little attention to and even take for granted?  Air Conditioning coils are one of those places.  In fact our Air Conditioners actually draw the dirt to them by drawing air combined with the stirred up dirt through its air intake.  Yes, we do have filters in there, but they are not designed with the capacity to filter the fine dirt particles being blown with such force when the winds pick up in our fair desert valley.

After any heavy winds, no matter how long or short the duration, (and remember it does not have to be a full blown haboob), at a minimum the air filter must be changed to reduce damage to your air conditioner coils and ultimately the entire cooling system.  More importantly, take this opportunity to call your Chandler air conditioning service professionals, such as Air Care Cooling & Heating LLC. to come clean the coils.

Cleaning the coils on your air conditioner after any heavy winds and breezes is such an inexpensive yet crucial task to be done.  If you are hesitating or thinking how bad can it be?  The answer is simply the cost of a new air conditioning unit, or worse yet, lowered efficiency ratings and higher costs from your existing ac unit, combined with reduced life expectancy.

We depend on our Air Conditioning Units in Chandler AZ as a lifeline in our desert valley oasis of the sun, through our particularly long summers with extreme temperatures known only to us desert dwellers. However, what we have in common with everyone, no matter where they reside, is a desire for our dollar to go further. Reducing the cost of operation for our homes and businesses and creating efficiency in all areas has become of high importance in our times of economic distress.  This is accomplished by maintaining and keeping all of our systems in highest working order at all times.

Whether it is your home, your business or both, that one phone call to an Air Conditioning professional to clean the dirt out of your coils after heavy winds, will be the most important call you will make that day.  Keeping your Air Conditioner running at its maximum efficiency, increasing the life expectancy of your unit, saving money and staying cool year round will be the rewards of your quick action to maintain your air condition system. If not you may be in the market for a new air conditioning unit sooner than you think.

Being informed and aware is of highest importance only second to making the choices to act on the information we become aware of.  Now you know the damage of the winds and dirt to your air condition unit and its coils.  Act now, after each and every big wind, call your  Chandler air conditioning repair professional, then sit back and enjoy the comfort and savings of your air conditioner all year round.
