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!

How can You tell when You Need a New Heating Installation?

Monday, March 30th, 2015

After going to all the trouble of selecting and installing a new heating system, no homeowner can be blamed for wanting that system to last as long as possible.

With proper care and maintenance, you can probably get your heater to last a couple of decades or more. No matter how well you take care of it, however, it will eventually reach the end of its life. When that happens, you should be able to recognize the signs. Read on to find out how you can tell when you need a new heating installation.

Repair Costs

Every heating system is going to need repairs at some point during its life. However, you really shouldn’t have to get your heater repaired more than once every year or two. That tends to change once your heating system gets past a certain age, though. As a heating system gets older, the parts that make it up begin to wear out. As each part wears out at a slightly different rate, you can end up with this cascade of part failures that results in your heating system needing repair every few months. If this happens, it’s a pretty good indication that you need an entirely new system.

Cost of Heating Goes Up

You’re going to experience slight fluctuations in your heating bill from month to month as your demand changes. If your heating bills start rising consistently, however, then you may have a problem with your heating system. That same wear and tear that can cause cascade failures in the system also causes the system as a whole to operate less efficiently. As efficiency goes down, the system has to stay operating for longer and longer to achieve the same results. This is why the cost of your heating will go up with an older system.

Age

The general rule with heating systems is that if your heater is older than 15 years, it is time to think about replacing it. Even if the heating system itself is working fine, there are likely much more efficient heating systems on the market that could save you money. If your heating system is younger than 15 years, then you could probably squeeze a few more years out of it before it needs replacing.

If you think you need a new heating system, call Johns Refrigeration. We provide heating installation throughout Gilbert.

How Duct Sealing can improve Your Air Conditioning

Monday, March 23rd, 2015

Ductwork is what makes centralized air conditioning possible. Without ducts, you would likely be stuck using fans and opening windows in order to cool your home on hot days. Though they are very important to the operation of central air conditioning systems, ducts are almost always neglected when it comes to required maintenance.

Let’s take a look at one of the biggest problems that ducts face, and how duct sealing can take care of it for you.

Duct Leaks

Ducts may seem pretty unlikely to develop any serious issues over the years. After all, they don’t have any moving parts. They just kind of sit there, providing a passage for cool air to travel to its destination. What could possibly happen to cause a major duct problem? Well, the biggest problems that ducts face is that of leaks, and they can happen all sorts of ways.

Improper installation can leave large gaps between the sections of ductwork. Animals can occasionally get into the ducts and tear holes in them trying to escape. Excessive moisture can cause sections of the duct to rust away, opening holes in the network. Even normal use can result in leaks, as the ducts expand and contract with the temperature of the air moving through them. This can eventually cause them to work themselves loose.

So, why are duct leaks such a big deal? Even though duct leaks are often small, they tend to add up very quickly. The US Department of Energy has estimated that the average forced air system loses as much as 30% of its output to duct leaks. That translates to a very large amount of the air conditioning that you’re paying for going to waste every time you turn the system on.

Duct Sealing

Duct sealing is the process of finding and closing any leaks that may be present in your home’s ducts. By doing this, your HVAC technician can save you hundreds of dollars a year on your electric bill. The better sealed your ducts are, the more efficient your air conditioning system will be. It is recommended that you have your ducts professionally sealed at least once every two years.

If you haven’t had your ducts sealed in at least that long, call Johns Refrigeration. We provide air conditioning services throughout the Gilbert area.

Don’t Wait for a Breakdown Before Scheduling Heating Repair

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

You listen to that strange sound as your heating system happens, but the heat still turns on – so the system is still ok, right?

Maybe not, and you probably don’t want to wait for a full breakdown on a cold January day to find out. It can be very tempting to refrain from calling for heating repair in Gilbert when your heater is still working, but allowing it to run with a potential problem is a risk. Here are some of the signs it may be time to call an expert from Johns Refrigeration for heating repair help:

Odors

No matter what type of system you have, if you smell an odd odor, it most likely points to a developing problem. Odors to be concerned about would be burning smells, the smell of fuel such as natural gas or oil or burning plastic are all items to be taken seriously. As soon as you smell anything strange coming from your heater, it’s time to call for assistance.

Sounds

There are normal operational sounds for your heater, such as a whoosh at start-up or a click as the thermostat turns on and off. But sounds like buzzing, screeching, ticking or booming are not normal sounds. Should you hear sounds like this, call an expert for repair.

Low Heat

There are a lot of reasons that your system may not produce the amount of heating that you need. Depending on the type of system you have, low heat can be caused by air flow problems, refrigerant leaks, air lock or just plain damage somewhere. Low heat is a strong indication that your system isn’t working at the level it should be, so it’s best to call for a specialist.

More Damage to Your System

Waiting for your system to completely breakdown can cause even more problems as you wait. Problems tend to grow and spread, and if you wait long enough for repair, you may even incur some damage to your system.

If you are seeing or hearing any of the signs of heating problems, call Johns Refrigeration and schedule an appointment for heating repair in Gilbert.

Why Dripping Water Is a Problem With Your Air Conditioner

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

You need a reliable cooling system when summer rolls around, and here in Gilbert, AZ, air conditioning systems are as common as televisions and refrigerators in most homes. It behooves you to check your system for potential problems regularly and more importantly, to understand which signs indicate a need to summon a repair service. Dripping water, for instance, may not seem like a major cause for concern, but it can often indicate a significant issue.

Here’s Why Dripping Water Is a Problem with Your Air Conditioner

Dripping water usually stems from one of two serious issues. The first is a build-up of ice on your evaporator coils, representing lost cooling potential and insulating the refrigerant from the air it is supposed to cool. That’s usually caused by a loss of refrigerant, which needs to be corrected before it can cause even bigger problems.

A second cause can come from problems with the condensate pan, which collets condensation from the system and moves it safely out of your air conditioner. If the line gets clogged or the pan itself is misaligned, the water could overflow and create puddles on the ground.

In both of these situations, the dripping water constitutes a significant threat to the system. Air conditioners utilize a number of electrical components, including the condenser motor and fan motor. Dripping water can short them out, shutting your system off and necessitating some very expensive replacement parts. The good news is that a qualified AC repair technician can usually fix the problems before they get out of hand, either by sealing the leak, recharging the refrigerant, unclogging the drain line or fixing the misaligned pan.

That means, however, that you need to understand why dripping water is a problem with your air conditioner, and respond appropriately when you spot it. Air conditioning repair services in Gilbert, AZ are provided by the cooling experts at Johns Refrigeration. We pride ourselves on efficient service and our trained technicians know how to get to the bottom of any problems quickly. Contact us today to set up a repair appointment. You’ll be glad you did!
