Why Is Air Conditioning Size Important?

Monday, May 25th, 2015

Spring is here and summer is on the way, and for residents of Mesa, AZ now is the perfect time to replace an older air conditioning system with a new one. Temperatures are still relatively cool and if you act quickly, you can have a faster, more efficient air conditioner to help keep you cool this summer. Proper sizing is a key part of the installation process: ensuring that your system has the perfect power levels for your home. Why is air conditioning size important? It saves you money and helps keep your system functioning at its peak. (more…)

The ENERGY STAR Program and What It Means for Your AC

Monday, June 16th, 2014

You are probably familiar with the ENERGY STAR logo: a white star on a blue background next to the cursive word “energy.” You see it on many types of appliances, from computer monitors to refrigerators… and also on air conditioners. With this label appearing on so many different devices, you may wonder what it has to tell you about your air conditioner. We’ll explain.

For all your concerns and questions regarding air conditioning in Scottsdale, you have a reliable source: Johns Refrigeration. Since 1970 we have served the Valley of the Sun with quality air conditioning and heating services. Trust to our knowledge to keep your AC running year after year.

The U.S. ENERGY STAR Program

The ENERGY STAR label (always written in all-caps) indicates that an appliance meets the requirements of the ENERGY STAR program. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency initiated this program in the 1990s as a way to help consumers and businesses save money through energy conservation and to help protect the environment.

The ENERGY STAR program sets out requirements for appliances that will make them more energy-efficient and lower their polluting abilities. The program is voluntary: any company can decide if they want to submit their products to the program for qualification.

Each type of appliance has a different set of requirements to meet in order to receive the ENERGY STAR certification. In the case of an air conditioner, a system must have at least 14.5 SEER (seasonal energy efficiency rating) and 12 EER (energy efficiency rating) and contain specific features that consumers demand. The technology used to achieve the high efficiency ratings must not be proprietary: energy-saving performance of this type must be available to all companies.

Do you have an air conditioner with the ENERGY STAR label of approval on it? If you don’t know, check on it right now. For an older air conditioner, it’s possible that it doesn’t meet the program requirements. If your AC isn’t ENERGY STAR approved, you should consider installing a replacement unit that is. Even an older ENERGY STAR-approved air conditioner might not have the efficiency of newer systems (the program’s requirements have changed of the years).

If you want new installation of an ENERGY STAR air conditioning unit in Scottsdale, AZ, contact the experienced team at Johns Refrigeration. We can help you find the ideal energy-saving AC to cool down your home and save you money.

How to Prepare for a New Air Conditioner

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

If you are planning to have new air conditioning system installation in Mesa, AZ, you won’t have to worry about doing too much work—provided that you’ve hired a professional and experienced heating and cooling company to take care of the actual installation. You need professionals to do this work so that it goes smoothly and leaves you with a system that works properly and problem-free for many years.

There are some steps you can take to prepare for the new AC that will help you receive the most from it. These tasks also require work from professionals, but if you call Johns Refrigeration, we can handle all of them… no need for other contractors! Best of all, we have more than 40 years of experience with installation, so you’ll know that you’re receiving quality work.

Make sure the new AC is properly sized

“Sizing” is the process of finding out how powerful an AC is necessary for a space without wasting energy or short-cycling. An AC that is too large is as much a problem as one that is too small. Experts will perform a heat load calculation to determine how much heat enters a home and how much the appliances and lights inside generate. Once the specialists have determined the heat load, they will know the ideal size air conditioner to install.

Have an energy audit performed

An energy audit determines places where your home is wasting energy. It analyzes the energy-efficiency of the whole house and pinpoints places where energy is lost. The audit will locate the spots where heat enters and escapes, and using this information, the auditors can tell you how you can bolster the insulation. Better insulation means an AC that will need to work less. An audit will help you achieve greater savings with your future air conditioner.

Schedule any necessary duct repairs

An energy audit will also locate spots where there are leaks in your home’s ventilation system. Leaky vents are a major enemy of air conditioners, since they reduce air pressure, cut into airflow, bring heat into the shafts, and can lead to contamination infiltrating the cabinet. Sealing up the duct breaks will make certain that your new air conditioner works at its best.

You can entrust all these tasks to Johns Refrigeration. We will take care of sizing the new AC as a standard part of the installation, and we handle performing audits and duct sealing and repair. Once your air conditioning installation in Chandler, AZ is finished, you can always rely on us for excellent repairs and the necessary maintenance that will keep your new cooling system running for many years.

How Much Does Efficiency Matter with New Air Conditioners?

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

“Energy-efficiency” is one of the key phrases heard when it comes to modern appliances. We live in an era in which people want the devices they use on a daily basis to work well without putting an undue drain on energy resources. Technological progress has increasingly pushed to reduce the amount of power that machines need to work effectively, and today we have many choices for high efficiency systems for our home.

Like air conditioners.

The efficiency of an air conditioner is easy to discover: it’s listed as SEER, “seasonal energy efficiency rating,” a measure calculated from the ratio of the cooling power of an AC (in BTUs, British Thermal Units) to the energy consumed (in watt-hours) averaged over a season. The higher the SEER, the more efficiently it converts electrical power into cooling.

When you are looking for new air conditioning in Tempe, AZ, you will need to consider SEER as well as other factors. Johns Refrigeration can help you make the ideal choice for your home, and we will install your new system so it works its best for you. Contact us today to set up an appointment or request an estimate.

Efficiency is important for your energy budget

The most important information that SEER tells you is how it will save you money over a season of cooling. A system with more than 14.5 SEER qualifies for the ENERGY STAR label from the U.S. EPA and is considered an excellent choice for saving money. The higher the number, the more you can expect to save during a season.

Efficiency is important for service life

If an air conditioner has high efficiency, then it puts less pressure on its components in order to run. This means it will last longer on average than comparable systems with lower SEER. When you invest in a high SEER air conditioning system, you are making a long-term commitment to energy savings.

Efficiency in not important for cooling power

This is where people sometimes make a mistake: just because a unit has high SEER doesn’t mean it is automatically the best choice. Aside from high SEER air conditioners costing more, they may not actually provide enough cooling for a home. Energy-efficiency only measures the ratio of cooling power to energy consumed; a system can very efficiently make use of power, and yet still not produce the amount of cooling needed to evenly condition a house. You must balance SEER with other factors in your home so that you have the perfect air conditioning in Tempe, AZ that cools you down and saves money.

Let the NATE-certified technicians at Johns Refrigeration handle your air conditioning installation. We will make sure that we put in a system with the best balance of SEER and other important factors.

Why You Should Also Replace Your Thermostat with New Air Conditioning Installation

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

It’s easy to think of the thermostat as a separate system from the air conditioner. You can have a new air conditioner installed and still keep the older thermostat in place, and vice versa. However, a thermostat plays an important role in air conditioning operation, and unless it’s kept up to date with a new AC, it can lead to a loss in efficiency and cooling. When the time has come to replace an old and ailing air conditioner, you should arrange to have a new thermostat installed with it.

For the quality air conditioning installation service in Chandler, AZ, that will take care of all the steps, from picking the replacement unit to hooking up a new thermostat, trust to Johns Refrigeration. We have served homes with excellent AC and heating since 1970.

The Importance of Installing a New Thermostat

A thermostat can make or break an air conditioner. Only a small fault in the thermostat’s operation will mean an AC that turns on and off at the wrong time, or short-cycles and drains excess power. Although you may not notice anything wrong at first, a malfunctioning thermostat will begin to raise your cooling bills and put extra strain on the AC, leading to repairs and a shortened lifespan.

In the same way that a malfunctioning thermostat negatively affects an air conditioner, an outdated thermostat will limit an updated AC. The situation might not be as extreme, but you will end up getting far less of what you paid for from your new cooling system if you have a thermostat that cannot control it with the necessary precision.

It’s especially important to upgrade your thermostat if you still have a manual model. Manual models do not have the precision settings of digital models, and they cannot be programmed. If you move up to a digital programmable model, or even to a Wi-Fi-enabled one, you’ll have a level of control over your new air conditioner that will help you receive the most from it.

Finally, choosing to have thermostat installation done during air conditioning installation streamlines the process. It’s easier for technicians to take care of the two jobs together than to wire up a new thermostat later. You will need to update the thermostat eventually—particularly if you have a manual or non-programmable digital model—so have the work taken care of all at once.

At Johns Refrigeration, we offer full thermostat replacement service that we can perform in connection with your air conditioning installation. If you don’t plan to have a new AC put in but would like to have a new thermostat, we are happy to help with that as well. Call us today to find out what we can do to make your home more comfortable this summer.

3 Reasons to Install a New Air Conditioner

Friday, May 16th, 2014

A summer in Chandler, AZ is nothing to approach lightly. Air conditioners must stay in the best shape possible to endure the scorching days without major malfunctions or breakdowns. In some cases, preparing an air conditioner for summer will require more work than spring maintenance and preventive repair work: there are times when you will need to completely replace the AC with a new system. In this post, we’ll look at 3 good reasons to invest in a professional air conditioning installation in Chandler, AZ for the coming season.

Part of quality AC operation is quality AC services from professionals. Call Johns Refrigeration and rely on our more than 40 years of experience with air conditioning services to keep you cool all summer long.

Here are 3 reasons top consider air conditioner replacement installation:

1. Your Current AC Is Too Old

“Too old” is a relative term, since air conditioner models have different lifespan estimates. Check on the estimate your manufacturer set for your air conditioner, which is probably between 10–15 years. If the system is older than the upper limit, then you should have a replacement done when it is still convenient and before the system decays to the point that it begins costing you extra in repairs and operation.

2. You Have Experienced a Sharp Increase in Cooling Costs

When an air conditioner suffers too much wear and tear, it will start to drain excess energy to run its components. If this efficiency loss comes from a single malfunction or because of delayed maintenance, it is usually a simple issue to fix: a visit from a technician will restore the system and lower energy costs back to normal. However, if your air conditioner continues to cost more and more to run with each month, and no amount of service changes this, then the system has gone beyond the point where repairs will help and you should replace it.

3. You Want To Take Advantage of New Technology

If you have had your current AC a decade or more, a number of major advances in HVAC technology have arrived since it was first installed. Current air conditioners have superior performance and energy-efficiency, as well as additional features that weren’t available 10 years ago. Replacing an older system can mean a significant jump in your comfort and savings.

Call Johns Refrigeration today to ask about what we can do to provide you with a great new air conditioning installation in Chandler, AZ. We can help you make the choice about whether you should replace your current system or not; if replacement is your best choice, you can trust us to help you pick the right unit and install so that you won’t have to worry about another replacement for many, many years.

What Are Some Signs That I May Need a New Air Conditioning System?

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

If you require new air conditioning installation, now is the ideal time of the year to have the work done. You’ll have your new system humming away at keeping you cool in time to keep back the Arizona summer heat. Just make a call to Johns Refrigeration and tell our skilled technicians that you want new air conditioning system installation in Gilbert, AZ, and we’ll help you find the right AC to replace your old one.

However, you may feel unsure if you need to have a new AC. Replacing an air conditioner is a large task, and sometimes targeted repairs are a less expensive option. We’ll look at signs that usually indicate when repairs are no longer the best choice and it’s time to replace.

Signs it’s time to retire that old air conditioner

  • Rising repair costs: How much is too much when it comes to repairing an air conditioner? Take some time to look over the last two years of repair bills for your AC (cooling systems tend to need the most repairs during their last two years of operation). Add them up. If you discover that it takes more than $500 in repairs per year to keep your AC running, then it’s no longer worth the cost of maintaining the system and you should look into new installation.
  • Reduced cooling power: If the summer comfort in your home just isn’t what it used to be, you should take into account the age of the air conditioner. The life expectancy of most AC systems is 10–15 years; check the cabinet or the manual to find out the estimate for your system. If your air conditioner has reached this age and you notice a drop in cooling power, then it’s time for a replacement.
  • Increased operating costs: You may not need numerous repairs for your air conditioner, but an old one can still cost you extra money through inefficient operation. Examine your electric bills for the past two years to see if you spot a noticeable rise due to the AC. If you’ve kept up regular maintenance on the system but operating costs continue to rise, then the air conditioner has probably reached the point of no return and needs to retire.

A professional second opinion

You do not need to make the choice of “replace or repair” on your own. Call a skilled HVAC repair technician to examine the system and give you an honest opinion on how much longer it will last and what you can expect to pay to keep it running. If it turns out that replacement is the most economical option, the technician will help you select a new system and schedule the installation work.

At Johns Refrigeration, our family-run business has helped customers since 1970 keep cool. Look to us when you need information about air conditioning installation in Gilbert, AZ and whether it’s time for you to replace your old system.

3 Factors to Consider with Air Conditioning Installation

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

A new air conditioner is a significant investment in your home, but as your old one slowly breaks down, it may be time to think of a new one. Spring is here and the cooling season is fast approaching. Now is the time to get rid of a wasteful or inefficient system in favor of one that can lower your cooling bills significantly once it’s installed. Here in Mesa, air conditioning installation services will be happy to put a new unit into your home. As with any purchase of this size, however, you need to prepare things properly before pulling the trigger.

Here are 3 factors to consider with air conditioning installation.

  • Sizing the unit. Air conditioners need to have enough power to cool your entire home, but not so much that they cycle on and off multiple times throughout the day. (Cycling is very hard on the unit and costs you wasted energy). Sizing it properly means factoring in the square footage of your home, as well as the presence of insulation and more nebulous factors like sunlight exposure. A trained technician can inspect your home and perform the proper calculations for you.
  • Getting an efficient unit. Air conditioning efficiency is measured in SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings, detailing how effective the unit is at doing its job. The higher the rating, the more effective the air conditioner, and less it will cost in monthly fees to properly cool the house. Look for units with the highest SEER rating in you price bracket; the monthly savings they provide will help offset the cost of installation.
  • Adding bells and whistles. If you’re in the market for upgrades, you might think about adding a heat pump (which combines the duties of a heater and an air conditioner) rather than a more traditional air conditioning unit., You might also consider a zone control system, either installed into your existing ducts or added as part of a mini ductless split system. This is a good time to consider such changes, since they’re easier during the installation stage.

For more factors to consider with air conditioning installation here in Mesa, give Johns Refrigeration a call. We have the tools and experience to do the job right and we’ll give it our all to deliver the air conditioner you need.
