What’s That Brown Cloud on the Horizon? How to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

 

Living in the desert, Arizona homes can experience higher levels of dust and other contaminants than homes in other climates. As a result, it’s important to consider your home’s indoor air quality and learn what you can do to ensure a healthy environment for your family.

Those who suffer from allergies can be especially susceptible to issues from poor air quality in the home. Other signs your home may have poor indoor air quality include:

  • Persistent headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Weakness or fatigue
  • Nausea

Many symptoms resulting from issues with indoor air quality appear similar to the flu and often go undiagnosed.

To help improve your indoor air quality, start by contacting John’s Refrigeration to learn about our air quality services. There are a number of simple steps to take to help insure healthier indoor air quality:

  • Check the duct system: Air contaminants like dust, pollen, and other environmental toxins can get into your home and circulate through dirty, leaky ducts. Getting ducts cleaned, checked for leaks, and repaired is a valuable first step for protecting the air you breathe.
  • Install an air filter: After checking and sealing the duct system, John’s can install our Fresh Air Filter System that will help continue to keep the home ventilated with clean air. Air filters catch pollutants before they enter the indoor air.
  • Beware of carbon monoxide: Carbon Monoxide is an odorless but poisonous gas that can come from your heater, furnace, fireplace, or other gas appliances and tools. Undetected, it can cause a number of health issues and can be fatal. When we conduct a heating repair service, we check for things like cracks in the heater, where carbon monoxide can leak.
  • Add a humidifier: Our dry climate leaves the indoor air lacking moisture, causing skin issues, potential respiratory problems, and increased dust. Adding a humidifier to the system can help alleviate these issues and allow homeowners to manage the humidity levels in the home.

To schedule an inspection to check on the quality of your indoor air, contact John’s Refrigeration at (480) 718-1172.

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!

 

Reduce Indoor Dust and Five More Ways to Make Your Home Healthier

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

For about half the year, Phoenix, Arizona homes are closed to keep the air conditioning inside and the hot air outside. While this keeps us cool, it can also wreak havoc on allergies and asthma. Dust, pollen, and other contaminants can get into our homes through leaks in the duct system and unsealed doors and windows. Reduce indoor dust and you can reduce the allergies and asthma symptoms associated with unclean indoor air.

 

The team at John’s Refrigeration will come to your home and perform a whole home inspection to see where allergens are getting into your home and offer solutions such as a whole home air purifier, air humidifier, and sizing and sealing of the duct system.

Other ways to make your home healthier include:

  1. Carpets. Dust and other particles can get trapped in the carpets of your home, causing allergic and asthmatic reactions. The best option is to get rid of them and replace with tile or hardwood floors, especially in common areas. If you can’t do that, have carpets cleaned on a regular basis; every three to six months is ideal.
  2. Pets. If you have pets, you’re inviting allergens into your home. Dander, dirt, and dust can be causing breathing and other health problems. Before you decide Fido and Fifi have to be re-homed, try bathing them regularly and installing an air purifying system in your home that will trap dander and other allergens before they can make you sick.
  3. Shoes. Take your shoes off as soon as you enter your home. Ask guests to do the same. This will reduce indoor dust, bacteria, and environmental allergens that enter the home.
  4. Pests. No one wants to talk about unwanted house pests, but they are a reality, especially here in the desert. Wash your sheets and other bedding frequently and vacuum the bed to reduce the number of dust mites. If you see cockroaches, call an exterminator immediately. Cockroaches carry bacteria and disease and move as fast as three miles an hour, spreading germs throughout your home.
  5. Mold. Check under sinks and around windows for leaks that can eventually grow mold. As soon as you find mold, get rid of it, as it can cause a variety of breathing and other health problems.

If you’re worried about indoor dust and other allergens in your home, Just Call John’s for an inspection of your HVAC system including the unit and the duct system of the entire home. We’ll help you reduce indoor dust and keep you healthy!

How a Maintenance Program is Like Healthcare for Your HVAC

Friday, February 7th, 2014

Did you know the HVAC system helps your home to breathe? It’s true. Your home breathes just like we do; inhaling and exhaling. Sometimes the system is at less than optimal performance, making regular maintenance even more important to schedule, and here’s why:

 

  1. Catches issues before they become big problems. You catch a cold and start resting so it doesn’t get worse. This is the same reason you schedule maintenance for your HVAC unit. Small adjustments can save you time, money, and the discomfort of having a home that isn’t the right temperature for you and your family.
  2. Keeps an optimal level of health. Changing filters, checking smoke detectors and CO monitors, and system checks help keep the HVAC system running efficiently. Our Peak Performance Club Membershipincludes two annual 51-point inspections. The inspection identifies anything that can shorten the life of the system, cause high utility bills, or result in harm to your family.
  3. Saves money. In addition to the system running efficiently, it will save you money over the long run. Our trained technicians can make adjustments to the system before it breaks down, especially during extreme temperatures.

Now is the time of year to schedule maintenance for your HVAC system. Think of it like an annual physical to maintain the comfort of your home. You’ll thank us when the A/C kicks on and cools your home during our desert summers.
