Maximizing the air-conditioning

 

The weather outside any subzero and everyone is more concerned about heat, but this is actually a great time to plan a more fuel-efficient air-conditioning system. There are ways in which a homeowner can see to it that the house gets exactly the cooling air it needs be comfortable, without busting the home budget.

Optimal Efficiency in the House

The first things that could be done involves the structure of the house. Windows can be fitted with window film to deflect the rays of the sun, seeing to it that unwanted heat does not penetrate into living quarters. Ceiling fans can also be put in to make certain that air circulates properly and that no one room is overly warm. Insulation around the windows is primarily a means of plugging the leaks. There really is no reason to air-conditioning outside with cool air escaping into the outdoors. A programmable thermostat can adjust the temperature so that when the house is vacant the level of air-conditioning is reduced.

Looking at the Air-Conditioning Unit

There are a number of heat pumps on the market but a homeowner may not be able to afford one just yet. The AC service can be made more efficient by a very simple air conditioning tune-up. This would include checking on the filters and also looking to see if there any possible refrigerant leaks in the existing air conditioner. This is the time of year that the HVAC unit is not in a lot of use, so doing any maintenance work is not going to cause an inconvenience for the household. The ductwork may need a little inspection to see whether or not there are accumulations of dirt that may be obstacles to airflow. If it looks as if there may be some mechanical problems with the air conditioner, it is a good idea to have an HVAC technician come in to do more in-depth work.

None of the above really costs and awful lot of money but it’s the kind of maximization that ensures that the air-conditioning is providing the best service when it is most needed. It’s also very easy to schedule maintenance work right now, because this is the off-season and HVAC maintenance companies have available time.

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.
