Late Winter Repairs on Your Heater

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

Here in Mesa, AZ, our winters are short and mild, but we’re not through the current winter yet. We’re likely to get a few more cold spells before the temperatures finally start to climb. This is the time of year when we get more repair calls on heating systems than any other, as regular winter use can cause it to wear out and break down right in the home stretch. The sooner you can spot the kinds of problem that can lead to late winter repairs on your heater, the better.  Here’s a quick list of some things to watch out for as we head into the final month of winter. (more…)

Help! My Heating System Won’t Turn On!

Monday, February 8th, 2016

If your heating system fails to respond when you turn it on, then obviously there’s a problem. You should start by checking the breaker box in your home to see that power is flowing to it. If it is, and it still won’t turn on, make sure you cut power to it, then call in a repair service. It’s helpful to understand that there are numerous reasons why your heating system won’t turn on. It might have nothing to do with electricity, which is why you need a professional service to take care of it. Here is a list of a few possible causes.(more…)

Can Your Heater Get Too Hot?

Monday, February 1st, 2016

Winters don’t get too cold here in Mesa, AZ, but the desert nights are plenty chilly and chances are your heater has been seeing a lot of activity in the last few months. Generating heat is the furnace’s purpose. But believe it or not, it is possible for a furnace to get too hot. Or rather, it’s possible for a furnace to be unable to distribute the heat it generates effectively, which can spell big trouble for your system. Here’s how. (more…)

What Using an Old Heater Costs You

Monday, January 18th, 2016

It can get surprisingly cold here in Mesa, AZ, and your heating system will likely see a lot of use this time of year. Because we live in a desert, most of our energy is devoted to keeping our air conditioners in peak condition, which can lead to you using an older heater long after it should be put out to pasture. Installing a new heater now means you can start taking advantage of its numerous benefits right away. Waiting, on the other hand, could cost you a great deal more than you know. Old heaters can often be surprising cash sinks. (more…)

What Are the Benefits of Modular Commercial HVAC Systems?

Monday, January 4th, 2016

Commercial HVAC systems have much different needs than residential systems, as any business owner or office manager here in Mesa, AZ can tell you. The space is often larger, for one thing, and the specific temperature is often far more than a matter of comfort. Accordingly, many business spaces opt to use modular units, which means multiple HVAC units all contributing to the heating and cooling needs of the building (as opposed to one centralized unit, which you usually find in residential homes). It may seem like a lot of extra work, especially when they’re first being installed, but in fact modular units provide a number of benefits that can specifically help commercial spaces. We’ve listed a few of the more important ones below: (more…)

Is It Too Late to Get Heating Maintenance This Year?

Monday, December 21st, 2015

The holidays are here, and the weather has grown chilly in Mesa, AZ, which means most people will be running their heaters on a regular basis. The increased frequency of heater use may lead some residents to wonder if they might need heating maintenance, and to suspect that it may be too late in the season to schedule it. Instead, they’ll soldier on with their heater as is, and wait for the spring to think about maintenance. This can be a big mistake. It’s never too late to get heating maintenance this winter—especially if you haven’t serviced your system in a while—and the benefits can affect your household immediately. Now is the time to schedule maintenance if you haven’t done so already. (more…)

Simple Signs of Heating Trouble

Monday, November 16th, 2015

As our heaters see more and more use in the latter part of the year, Mesa, AZ residents need to keep a careful eye out for signs of trouble. Heating problems have a way of sneaking up on you, and something that’s easy to fix now may cost you a pretty penny if you let it wait for a few weeks. A good maintenance session from a trained professional can help you spot signs of heating trouble, but you yourself can keep an eye on your heater as well, and call in a professional as soon as you detect anything out of the ordinary. What does “out of the ordinary” mean? We’ve provided a quick list below. (more…)

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

These days, we’re all looking for ways to save money, especially on our utility bills.

Furnace or Heat Pump – Which Is Better?

Friday, November 7th, 2014

Homeowners have a number of choices when it comes to selecting a new heating system for their home. Not only are there choices in the type of system you can have, there are choices when it comes to fuel types and how air is delivered to your living spaces. There is also the question of choosing a more traditional system like a furnace, or selecting something with newer technology, like a heat pump. We’re going to take a look at both of these heating systems today, but one of the best ways to ensure that you choose a heating system, that fits both you and your home is to work with a professional from start to finish. John’s Refrigeration has the trained and certified professionals who can help you decide which system will work best in your home, so call us today.

Furnaces

Furnaces can use oil, gas, propane or electricity as fuel. Combustion furnaces heat by warming the heat exchanger inside the unit and blowing the warmed air into your home. Electric furnaces use tightly-wound coils that are heated by electricity to warm air, with ductwork distributing the heated air throughout your home. Some of the benefits of furnaces are:

  • Fast heat – furnaces can heat living areas quickly.
  • Widely available – furnaces are one of the most commonly-used heating systems around; as such, parts are widely available as are replacement units.
  • Can be used with air conditioning – because furnaces need ductwork to deliver heat, it is easy to add air conditioning to your home when you have a furnace.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps do not use fossil fuels to operate, nor do they generate heat via combustion. Heat pumps work by transferring heat from one place to another. They do this with the help of refrigerant, which facilitates the heat transfer process. During the winter, heat pumps absorb the heat in the surrounding air, concentrate it and distribute it to your home. In summer, the refrigerant absorbs the heat from your indoors and transfer it outside. Some of the benefits heat pumps offer are:

  • Very energy efficient – heat pumps use approximately 25% of the electricity a whole-home air conditioner uses, making them very energy efficient.
  • Heats and cools – heat pumps are 2-in-1 devices that can both heat and cool your home.
  • Doesn’t need ductwork – heat pumps can work with ductless systems, so you don’t have to have ductwork to install a heat pump system.

When it comes to deciding what type of heating system to install in your home, the best decision you can make is to work with a professional. Call Johns Refrigeration today and schedule your heating service in Mesa, AZ with one of our experts.

Why Is My Furnace Short-Cycling?

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Most of us are familiar with the little tick sound that the furnace will make when it starts a new cycle, but if you are constantly hearing that sound, and noticing your system keeps turning on and off, you most likely have a short-cycling problem. Short-cycling can cause damage to your heating system, so it’s important to have the issue addressed right away. There can be a few reasons why your furnace is short-cycling, which is why it’s best to call for professional help. John’s Refrigeration has been helping customers in Mesa, AZ with their heating needs since 1970, so if you are experiencing issues with your furnace, call us today.

Reasons for Short-Cycling

Here are some of the reasons your furnace may be short-cycling:

Blocked Air Flow

Proper airflow is critical to the operation of your furnace. Airflow can be restricted by obstructed ductwork, a dirty air filter and/or blocked registers. To help prevent low airflow, it’s important to change your air filter regularly (approximately every 3 months), have your ductwork professionally cleaned every 3-5 years and make sure that furniture, drapes, etc., are not blocking the heat registers in your home.

Thermostat Problems

Your thermostat controls when your system cycles; should it malfunction, one of the problems that can develop is short-cycling. Common issues that can cause the thermostat to perform poorly are dirt and dust on the inside instrumentation, placement in drafty areas or poor mounting that makes the thermostat hang unevenly.

Overheating

Your furnace has a number of safety devices that will turn it off when it gets too hot. One of the reasons short cycling can occur is because the heat exchanger overheats. When this happens, the burner automatically shuts off to prevent damage to the heat exchanger.  In rare circumstances, a crack in the heat exchanger can also cause short cycling. Significant dirt and dust can also cause overheating, as a thick enough layer will act as insulation and keep heat trapped, which makes the heat exchanger too hot. No matter what the cause, overheating is a serious situation, and should be taken care of immediately.

Short-cycling can cause premature aging, wear and tear and damage to your furnace. If your heating system is short-cycling, call John’s Refrigeration today and schedule your heating service in Mesa, AZ with one of our HVAC professionals.
