What is an energy audit?

Friday, January 8th, 2016

 

Are you seeing constant spikes in your electricity and/or heating bill? Have you ever questioned the efficiency of your heating system or the working order of your washer and dryer? If you've answered yes to both these questions, you should seriously think about having a professional conduct an energy audit in Gilbert AZ or wherever your home is located in the East Valley. The objective of an energy audit is to pinpoint places or parts of your home where you are losing energy.

At John's Refrigeration, our energy audit process is both unique and comprehensive. The first part of our process is to schedule an appointment with the homeowner to talk about their concerns while asking questions about the home's current energy efficiency.

After the initial meeting, the technician will inspect the entire property, including the ductwork, attic and/or crawlspace, the air conditioning and heating system, and the lighting and appliances.

Following the inspection, the technician will perform some tests to get reliable readings on the efficiency of the home. These tests show if the home has any energy leaks and helps determine if the home has positive or negative pressure.

Upon completion of the tests, we present the homeowner with our recommendations and provide a plan of action. A variety of issues can be the cause of inefficiencies in the home. Oftentimes we suggest an upgrade of appliances to Energy Star systems, but more times than not it tends to be a heating unitissue and that's where we dig a little deeper.

John's Five Step Home Efficiency Program

The box on the roof or exterior wall of your property has no function without proper ventilation; it's just a box that blows hot or cold air, which is not efficient and offers little in the way of true comfort. If there are any gaps or repair work needed to the heating system, we have the experience and expertise to carry out the job through our five step process:

  1. Size and seal your duct system properly
  2. Fix pressure balance problems
  3. Fresh air & purification or filtration
  4. Balancing
  5. New HVAC equipment

For a full overview on our five step approach please take a look at this video.

Only by addressing all issues (i.e. steps one through five) can we truly help you live in a home that is safe, comfortable, and reliable – one that really works for you!

 

Ductless Air Conditioning

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

Ductless air conditioning involves the installation of an outdoor and indoor unit, similar to a central air conditioner system. But where central air conditioning uses a fan to distribute air through the ducts, ductless systems contain all of the indoor components in an air handler mounted high on the wall or on the ceiling. These air handlers blow cool air directly into the room, which is why most homes require more than one air handler. One outdoor condenser unit can usually accommodate up to four indoor air handlers, though. However, you don't necessarily need ductless air conditioning to fix a hot room. Your current ductwork may just need to be repaired or cleaned, which is also a service that John's offers.

If you choose ductless air conditioning, these units deliver cooling evenly throughout your home without having any ductwork. Ductless units are often just as powerful as central a/c systems. In fact, many traditional HVAC systems that use air ducts can't perform as well due to leaks in the ductwork. With a ductless unit, you won't have to worry about air leaks, which means you'll be more comfortable and enjoy lower utility bills because of the energy savings.

When you use ductless air conditioning to cool your entire home, you also have zone control, which isn't an option with a ducted system. Each air handler has its own thermostat, which means that you get to choose the temperature in any zone of the house separately from the other areas. So if you need the bedrooms to be cooler at night, but the kitchen and living areas to be cooler during the daytime, all you have to do is adjust the temperature in those zones.

If you'd like to learn more about ductless air conditioning, Just Call John's. We offer ductless service, as well as duct repair and inspection for homes that have ductwork.

Ductless Systems and Your Indoor Air Quality

Monday, April 20th, 2015

The spring season is also the peak of allergy season. If there are people in your home with asthma or allergy problems, this period of the year can often be a rough one, with an increase in the cold- and flu-like symptoms associated with allergies and unpleasant asthma attacks.

There are many ways you can help raise indoor air quality in your home to alleviate the hassles of allergy season, as well as allergy and asthma hassles around the year. Johns Refrigeration offers a number ofexcellent solutions for cleaning the indoor air in your home, including UV lights and electronic air cleaners. There is another, more extensive solution you may consider if you are also planning to install a new air conditioning system or new home construction lies in your future: a ductless mini split heat pump.

How does a ductless system help with allergies and air quality?

Most indoor air quality remedies are designed to remove the contaminants that circulate through the air of a home: filters, purifiers, etc. But what if you could remove the location where most of these contaminants gather? That would eliminate the bulk of them. This is what switching from a standard ducted central heating and air conditioning system to a ductless mini split heat pump achieves.

The ductwork of a home is a major spot for pollutants to gather. The airtight seal inside the ducts makes it easy for dust, dirt, pollen, dander, and numerous other allergens to begin to build up. Ducts don't receive routine cleaning during the week like many other parts of your home, so this level of debris will continue to grow with no escape except into your home's air.

But ductless mini split heat pumps have no ductwork at all. They instead send conditioned air directly into rooms through wall-mounted air handlers. These air handlers connect to an outside unit, so they are still central systems with much more power than window air conditioners; but their direct cooling and heating power means they can bypass ducts and the contamination that develops inside them. The result is a significant drop in the allergens moving around your home.

Call Johns Refrigeration in Mesa, AZ and throughout the Valley of the Sun to find out more about ductless mini split heat pump installation. We are glad to help you with any other indoor air quality installations that will make your home healthier place.

Why Consider a Ductless Heating System?

Friday, December 5th, 2014

Ductless heating systems may seem like an odd choice for heating your entire home. They take up wall space, can only heat one room at a time, and are less efficient than traditional heating systems in extremely cold climates. However, ductless heating systems have quite a few unique advantages over other systems when used to heat an entire home. Read on for some of the reasons why you should consider a ductless heating system for your home.

What is a Ductless System?

Ductless heating systems utilize heat pump technology move heat from one area to another. This is in contrast to traditional combustion systems, which burn fuel to generate heat. The ductless unit is split into two parts, an interior and exterior. The interior unit is installed in a room of the house, usually on the wall or ceiling, while the exterior unit is located on an outside wall. When the unit is turned on, the exterior unit uses an evaporator coil to siphon thermal energy from the surrounding air. That energy is then sent, via the refrigerant line, to the interior unit. The interior unit then uses that energy to heat and circulate the air in the room.

Why Should I Consider One?

As the name implies, ductless systems eschew ductwork completely. This limits each unit to heating just one room, which is why it has to be installed in that room. It may seem as though this is a disadvantage to using a ductless system. However, there are a couple of things to consider. First, each ductless system is installed with its own thermostat. This allows different rooms in the house to be set at different temperatures, conserving energy and letting each occupant choose a temperature that is comfortable for him or her.

The second thing to consider is energy efficiency. Centralized forced air systems lose as much as 30% of their heat on average to leaks in the ductwork. Ductless systems completely avoid this issue, delivering all of their heat to the target destination and saving money in the process.

If you'd like to know more about ductless systems, call Johns Refrigeration. We offer heating repair services throughout the Mesa area.

The Benefits of Going Ductless

Monday, September 29th, 2014

If your home does not have any ducts currently installed, or if you've recently added a new room extension onto your ducted home, it can be difficult to find the best way to keep cool. Fans cannot actually cool a home, and portable air conditioners just don't do the trick. Adding on ducts can be very difficult in some structures, and it takes up a lot of time and energy. But if you ask any HVAC expert about the best way to cool an entire house or room without installing ducts, they're likely to tell you about ductless cooling.

Ductless air conditioning involves the installation of an outdoor and indoor unit, much like central air conditioners. But while central air conditioning uses a fan to distribute air through the ducts, ductless systems instead contain all of the indoor components in an air handler mounted high on the wall or ceiling. These air handlers blow cool air directly into the room, which is why most homes require multiple air handlers. However, one outdoor condenser unit can usually accommodate up to 4 indoor air handlers.

Here's why this may be the best option for you:

  • Comfort: A ductless unit provides even cooling throughout the entire home without the need for ductwork installation. Ductless units are generally just as powerful as central AC systems. In fact, many ducted systems cannot perform as well due to leaks that commonly occur in the ducts. With a ductless unit, you won't have to worry about air leaks, which means greater comfort and energy savings.
  • More Control: When you use ductless air conditioning to cool your entire home, you get the added benefit of zone control. Each air handler has its own thermostat, which means that you get to choose to set the temperature in any zone of the house separately from the other areas.
  • Energy Savings: Central air conditioners risk the problem of standby energy loss due to leaky ducts. Often, homeowners are paying extra to cool unoccupied spaces such as the attic or crawlspace. Ductless units eliminate this potential energy loss, and usually have very high efficiency ratings.
