Why You Should be Concerned About Low Humidity

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015

There are lots of places in our country where excessive humidity is a big problem, but where we live, we can have the opposite problem: too little humidity. Humidity in a home needs to be balanced in order to be truly comfortable, and having too little humidity causes a number of problems.

The good news is that you can seamlessly add humidity to your home in Chandler with the installation of a whole-home humidifier. When you install a whole-home humidifier, it becomes a part of your entire HVAC system, so it's important to hire an expert for installation, repair, maintenance or replacement. The technicians at Johns Refrigeration bring two generations' worth of whole-home system experience to every job, so if you have concerns about your home's humidity levels, call us today!

Effects of Low Humidity

Low humidity effects both people and your home in the following ways:

  • Dries out wood – most homes have a considerable amount of wood, from flooring to ceilings to furniture. When wood doesn't have enough moisture it dries out, which leads to shrinking and eventually splintering. The end result can be irreversible damage.
  • Dries paint and wallpaper – paint can peel and bubble without enough moisture and wall paper can become unglued and start to tear.
  • Dries mucous membranes – too little humidity in your home can dry out your mucous membranes, which can lead to dry eyes, nose bleeds and dry skin.
  • Temperature discomfort – humidity holds heat, so if there is too little in your home, your air conditioning won't feel as comfortable. As a result, you may set your thermostat lower than it has to be because even though the air is cool, it may not feel that way.

The EPA estimates that indoor humidity levels should range between 30%-60% at all times. When the level in your home sinks below 30%, you may see the above-listed problems ensue. A whole-home humidifier eliminates these problems by integrating directly into your existing HVAC system and supplying your home with the needed moisture to make it comfortable year-round.

If you are interested to see what a humidifier can do your for Chandler home, call the indoor air quality professionals at Johns Refrigeration today and schedule an appointment.

How Duct Sealing can Improve Your Quality of Life

Friday, February 20th, 2015

When a heating or air conditioning system develops a problem, you usually notice it right away.

Weird sounds start coming from the unit, efficiency decreases, something starts smoking or icing over, etc. etc. Unfortunately, that isn't the case with ducts. Duct issues are silent, subtle, and often go completely unnoticed by the homeowner. That doesn't make them trivial, however. Let's take a look at one of the biggest problems that ducts are afflicted with, and how duct sealing can solve it.

Duct Leaks

Ductwork is really susceptible to leaks, and the sad fact of the matter is there isn't much to be done to prevent them. Most ducts are installed poorly, leaving gaps between the sections. Even properly installed ducts can work themselves loose through normal operation, expanding and contracting over time. In humid environments, there's the added problem of moisture causing corrosion and opening holes in the ducts. To make matters worse, even small duct leaks can really add up.

The US Department of Energy has estimated that the average home heating system loses as much as 30% of its output to leaks in the ductwork. Nearly a third of your heating or air conditioning output could be wasted before it gets to its destination, and you very likely wouldn't even realize that it's happening.

Duct Sealing

In an effort to address the massive issue that duct leaks present, duct sealing has become a common service. Basically, duct sealing consists of finding and closing any leaks that are present to improve energy efficiency. The HVAC technician conducting the service uses a number of specialized tools to address any possible kind of duct leak. While some homeowners may attempt to seal their own ducts, they often lack the materials and expertise to do the job properly. Duct sealing can also improve your air quality by preventing moisture from entering your ducts and causing mold growth. You should have your ducts sealed at least once every two years, in order to prevent wasted energy.

If you haven't had your ducts sealed in a while, call Johns Refrigeration. We provide ductwork sealing services throughout Chandler, AZ.

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.

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.
