What Consumers Need to Know About Smart Thermostats

The thermostat of an air conditioning unit in Mesa AZ is more than likely the farthest thing from busy consumers’ minds. It may seem like an unimportant part of an air conditioning unit, but it in fact plays a vital role in the functionality of a unit. Consumers probably do not give these items a second thought, but a thermostat plays a huge role in the overall comfort of the home and the efficiency of the unit. Thermostats are the devices that regulate the overall temperature of a central air unit. When the unit has a reached a specified temperature, the thermostat will stop the unit from continuing to cool.

How A Freon Leak Damages Your A/C System

 

How A Freon Leak Damages Your A/C System

      We all know a Freon leak is a problem, however do we fully understand how big of a problem it is and why?  Being informed is what will keep you, your family and business cool through the extreme heat of the summer and your budget balanced.

A Little Bit about Freon

     Freon or the refrigerant is a colorless, odorless, nonflammable, noncorrosive gas or liquid that runs through your Air Conditioning System pipes and compressor; it is the stuff that keeps you cool.  Without this gas or liquid you do not have an air conditioner, just a blower unit circulating air.

What clues do I have to know my Freon needs to be checked?

      There are many ways to know you may have a Freon leak, although you will not smell it, probably will not see it and it is not causing any danger by being in the air. The first clue is when your air is not blowing as cold as you are accustomed to or worse yet, if it is not even cold air anymore and it is warm.  Another big clue is if your air conditioning unit, compressor or coils freeze.  If you notice even the slightest change in the temperature of your air or any amount of freezing contact a technician immediately.

Damage Caused by A Freon Leak

      Beyond the obvious that you and your space is not being cooled off when there is a Freon leak and the Freon level is low, the leak can be so subtle that it is not obvious at first but the long term damage has already started.  Any loss of pressure from Freon and the compressor is instantly under additional strain, reducing its life expectancy and causing unnecessary wear and tear on the entire air conditioning system.  Starting at the very first pound of pressure lost; even though the air still feels cool it is a sufficient reduction of temperature to cause your Air Conditioning System to need to run longer to maintain the same temperature.  As Freon loss increases, the run time of your system also increases just to maintain the same room temperature.  This in turn raises the cost of cooling your space incrementally in direct correlation to the loss of pressure.  As your Air Conditioning System runs longer periods of time without a break, everything is being worked twice as hard and the entire system is wearing out at more than twice the rate it normally would if it had sufficient Freon and refrigerant.

Get Your Freon Level Checked routinely

      The best cure is prevention, have a routine service of your Air Conditioning System to include Pressure testing and leak testing for Freon.  Get it fixed if there is a leak and always call immediately if you suspect a leak.  The cost of an inspection is far less than the cost of a compressor, a whole unit and even one month’s bill of inefficient cooling of your home or office.

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.

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.
