Signs That You Need a New Heater

Monday, September 28th, 2015

Summer is drawing to a close here in Mesa, AZ, and while our hot weather doesn’t end just because the calendar says so, before long you’re going to be firing up your heating system to stay warm on our chilly winter’s nights. If your heater is ready to be replaced, now is the time to do it, when you still have the flexibility to schedule a session before your needs are serious. Installing a new heater can also let you take advantage of improved efficiency, lowering those monthly energy bills all winter long. But how can you tell if you need a new heater? Specifics vary, and only you can make the final call on that front, but there are a few signs that you should learn to look out for. (more…)

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.

What Are My Heating Options in Tempe?

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

There is a huge amount of heating options available to homeowners today, so many that it can easily be overwhelming.

  • Do you want a combustion heater or a heat pump?
  • If combustion, what fuel do you want it to burn?
  • If heat pump, do you want a central unit or a ductless system?
  • If you aren’t sure about any of those questions, don’t worry.

We’ve got a short summary below of some of your heating options in Tempe.

Furnaces

Furnaces are the most popular kind of heating system in the country. They’re relatively cheap, versatile, and put out a lot of heat relative to the amount of fuel burned. Most furnaces operate on natural gas, which is piped in by the city. In areas where natural gas is not an option, however, electric and even wood burning furnaces are still an option. Furnaces are a great option for those who want a sturdy heating system that can last a long time.

Heat Pumps

A heat pump does not burn fuel to create heat, like furnaces do. Instead, it evaporates and condenses refrigerant to move heat from one area to another. This makes it extremely energy efficient, because it’s moving preexisting heat from outside into the home instead of creating it. It’s also safer, as it doesn’t have any toxic byproducts of its operation like furnaces do from burning natural gas. Heat pumps are a good choice for people who want to save money and live in more temperate climates.

Ductless Mini-Split Systems

A ductless mini-split is just like a heat pump, but built to only heat one room instead of the whole house. Why would this ever be desirable? Well, for one thing it avoids losing heat to leaks in the ductwork, something that a lot of forced air systems suffer from. For another, it offers the added ability to set a different temperature in each room with a ductless system. Ductless systems fit the needs of those who want a finer level of control over the climate in their home.

If you’re in the market for a new heating system, call Johns Refrigeration. We provide heating installation services throughout Tempe.

What to Look for with Your Heating Installation Service

Monday, March 31st, 2014

Installing a new heater can be a big undertaking, both in terms of the investment involved and in the changes it will make to your house. A new heater can erase many of the problems an old heater suffers from, as well as giving you a chance to enjoy more reliable heat at improved monthly rates.

But the best way to ensure a clean and reliable new furnace is to hire the right heating service to install it.  Here in Gilbert, heating installation services are quite numerous, so how are you to tell the good services from the bad?

Here’s a few general guidelines that can tell you what to look for with your heating installation service.

  • Accreditation. The best and most reliable sign of a quality heating service is endorsements and affiliations with reputable third parties.  This can include the Better Business Bureau, the local Chamber of Commerce and specialized institutions like NATE (North American Technician Excellence), which gauge technician’s know-how in various technical fields. Good word of mouth helps too, but serious accreditations are a real stamp of approval when seeking the right service.
  • Longevity. A newly established company isn’t necessarily a bad one. Indeed, many can be quite good and every company was newly established at some point. But the more recently a company began, the more of a risk you’re taking in terms of quality. A company with a long history and successful track record means a long line of happy customers and reliability you can count on.
  • Service. When looking for a good heating service, you want to emphasize the “service” part of the equation. Does the company offer warranties or similar guarantees? Does it have 24-hour service to treat emergencies? Does it offer estimates before work starts so that you know what’s involved? These are signs of a professional organization that wants your business, and one you can presumably count on to do the job right.

Here in Gilbert, heating installation can be provided by John’s Refrigeration with an absolute assurance of quality. We’ve been in business since 1970, we offer emergency service and free estimates, and we proudly display accreditation with NATE, the BBB and the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce.

If you know what to look for with your heating installation service, you don’t need to look any further. Give us a call and set up an appointment today!

Consider the AFUE Rating When Planning Heating Installation

Monday, February 17th, 2014

In Mesa, AZ, heating installation services need to be familiar with a wide variety of options for their clients. Chief among them is the unit’s AFUE ratings, which stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. It’s a measure of how efficiently the heater does its job, which can pay huge dividends once your new heater is up and running. You need to consider the AFUE rating when planning heating installation because it can make a big difference in how your heater performs later on down the line.

The rating is measured as a percentage, derived from a fairly simple formula. It’s simply the total amount of energy the heater uses when it runs divided by the amount of energy it uses to actually heat the home. For example, if your heater uses 100,000 BTUs (British Thermal Units) of energy during its operation and generates 80,000 BTUs worth of heat, it would have an AFUE rating of 80%. The higher the rating, the more energy is being used to heat your home instead of being lost to waste or inefficiency. Naturally, heaters with a higher AFUE rating tend to cost more for the initial installation than those with a lower AFUE. You also tend to get a higher AUE with a new heater than an older one: a good reason to invest in a new unit if your current heater is laboring.

Beyond that, you need to balance your current budget with the anticipated savings of a unit with a high AFUE rating. The higher rated the system, the move it will save you in monthly costs over the years, especially in places with warm climates that don’t require heating year ‘round. Depending upon the specifics, the long-term savings might actually pay for the better unit and then some. As always, it pays to look at your specific circumstances and then do the math with a trusted advisor who knows the ins and outs.

In Mesa AZ, heating installation services can be performed by Johns Refrigeration, and we can consider the AFUE rating when planning heating installation with you. We’ll ensure that you get the best and most efficient unit for your circumstances and our installation of that unit will be second to none. Pick up the phone and give us a call today!

How Do I Know If I Need To Replace My Current Heater?

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

Here in Mesa AZ, heating installation and heating repair primarily hit us in the winter, when desert temperatures drop and air conditioning units get shuttered for the season. Similarly, it can be hard to tell when you need to replace your existing furnace or boiler with a new one. There are subtle (and some not so subtle) signs that can alert you to the issue if you look for them. “How do I know if I need to replace my current heater?” you ask. A few of the most common signs are outlined below.

  • Your existing heater is old. His isn’t a make-or-break proposition, especially if you’ve given your heater lots of care and maintenance over the years. A well-kept heater can last for months or even years after its “expiration date.” However, if you spot some of the other signs on this list and your heater is more than 10 years old, you should probably think about replacement.
  • Higher bills. This can include bother more extensive repair bills and a higher cost of operation from month to month. As heaters get older, the wear and tear means a lack of efficiency. Replacing your heater with a new one – preferably one with a high AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) rating can save you a great deal of money on these costs.
  • Recurring problems. Recurring issues such as a lack of overall heat and low air flow could signal a heater that is ready to be replaced. If you’re looking at problems that don’t seem to go away, no matter how many times a service technician inspects the heater, replacement may be the best way to save you time and aggravation.

We work in Mesa, AZ, heating installation is one of our specialties, and we can discuss your replacement options with you if your existing heater is no longer doing the job.
