What Are the Advantages of a Humidifier?

Monday, May 18th, 2015

We live in a desert environment here in Mesa, AZ, which means that our summers are as hot as they are dry. The dry air can actually create as many obstacles to your comfort as the heat, and no matter how well your air conditioner does its job, you can find yourself feeling quite uncomfortable without the help of a humidifier. A qualified HVAC technician can install a whole-house humidifier for you, but what are the advantages of a humidifier, specifically? Here’s a quick breakdown. (more…)

3 Signs of Trouble With Your Air Conditioning

Monday, May 11th, 2015

Mesa, AZ gets as hot as anywhere in the world during summer, and the last thing you need when the temperature shoot past 100°F is an air conditioner that breaks down. The sooner you can spot a problem with your system, the more quickly it can be addressed and less chance of serious trouble when the heat starts to rise.

3 Tips to Help Save on Air Conditioning Bills This Summer

Monday, May 4th, 2015

Few locations in the country need air conditioning as much as the Valley of the Sun in Arizona. During the summer we can expect to have our ACs running on a regular basis throughout the day and sometimes into the evening. Any average summer can end up creating very steep utility bills from air conditioning alone.

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.

Is Dry Air in My Home Really That Much of a Problem?

Monday, April 13th, 2015

A “dry heat” usually has a positive meaning. When the humidity rises along with the temperature, it makes the hot weather feel substantially worse. The extra moisture in the air creates a heat seal around the human body that restricts the body’s ability to release heat from the skin. The trapped heat makes the actual temperature feel hotter and less bearable. But if there is little moisture in the air, heat can escape from the body much faster, and so the heat doesn’t seem as bad. (Although a 110°F summer day in Mesa is still hot, no matter the humidity.)

3 Reasons to Schedule Spring Air Conditioning Maintenance

Monday, April 6th, 2015

If you’ve lived in Arizona for a year or more, you know how blistering hot it grows during the summer. Many of the other parts of the year can reach extremely high temperatures, but summer is the season when we need to be the most mindful of our air conditioning systems. If you head into the hottest time of the year with an AC that isn’t adequately prepared, it can mean serious trouble. The best way to know that you are ready for the season is to schedule regular air conditioning maintenance from professionals in the spring. Experienced air conditioning technicians will see that your cooling system is tuned-up, adjusted, and any necessary repairs taken care of before the serious heat begins.

To schedule maintenance with Mesa, AZ cooling professionals, call Johns Refrigeration today. We have served the area with superb air conditioning service since 1970.

These are 3 reasons you should always arrange for spring AC maintenance:

  • Avoid surprise breakdowns: The strain of an Arizona summer can push an AC to it limits, and if a system hasn’t received regular attention to reduce wear and tear, the heavy heat may cause it to break down—the last thing you want to happen during one of the hottest days of the year! Maintenance technicians will clean and adjust the air conditioner and catch any potential repair issues to make sure there is little chance the system will abruptly collapse during the season.
  • Long lifespan: An air conditioner comes with a manufacturer’s estimated service life. But unless the AC receives regular maintenance to lower the effects of age, it will probably not reach this goal. To prevent scheduling a premature and expensive replacement of your air conditioning system, make sure professionals inspect it and tune it up once a year.
  • Maintain energy efficiency: Each year that an AC goes without routine maintenance, it will start to lose energy efficiency and cost more to run. It only takes a few years for a high efficiency 16 SEER system to plummet down to an inefficient 12 SEER system, which will lead to a significant increase in your cooling bills. If you have annual maintenance, you can expect the AC to retain 95% of its energy efficiency through most of its (long) life.

Johns Refrigeration offers an excellent maintenance program to take care of your air conditioner in Mesa, AZ this spring—and every spring after it.

Our Peak Performance Club provides you with two 51-point inspections per year, one for your heater and one for your air conditioner. Membership also provides you with other benefits: call us today to find out more.

Ways to Celebrate Arbor Day in Mesa

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

What is Arbor Day and how can you celebrate? Arbor Day was established in April 1872 by J. Sterling Morton. He was a journalist from Nebraska who felt Nebraska’s landscape and economy would benefit from planting trees. The sentiment spread beyond Nebraska and today all 50 states and many countries around the globe celebrate Arbor Day by planting trees and educating communities on the benefits of trees.

This year we celebrate Arbor Day on April 24th.

Become a Member of the Arbor Day Foundation

The Arbor Day Foundation inspires people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. If you’ve ever wanted to know the difference between a weeping and desert willow tree, the anatomy of a tree, or hundreds of other facts, visit The Tree Database. You can also find information about companies supporting the environment with tree planting. Become a member of the Arbor Day Foundation and receive benefits, including 10 free trees, planting trees in rainforests, and planting trees in our national parks.

Get Named Tree City USA

If you live in Mesa, where John’s Refrigeration is based, you already live in a Tree City USA. In 2014, we celebrated the award given to us for having the ability to improve urban forests and educate the community on the importance of trees for communities and the environment. Celebrate this year by planting a tree!

Add Xeriscape in Your Yard

Not interested in planting trees in the desert? We can’t blame you as they need a lot of water to grow, especially when they are young. Consider xeriscaping instead, a low water-use landscape technique that preserves desert plants and conserves water.

Other ways to celebrate Arbor Day include reading about trees, visiting Boyce Thompson Arboretum in Superior, attending a class about plant care and maintenance, and spending time outside. The greener we can make our communities, the better we will be!

Can I Do My Own Heating Repairs?

Monday, January 5th, 2015

If you have discovered ways to perform multiple repairs around your household using your own tools and know-how, it’s tempting to think that you can apply this same dedication and independence to the central heating system that keeps the home warm during winter nights. After all, what’s wrong with trying to fix a small problem with a furnace or a heat pump on your own, rather than calling a professional contractor to handle it?

Actually, quite a lot is wrong with this! Although there are some basic maintenance tasks you can accomplish on your own, such as regularly changing a heater’s air filter, when it comes to repairing a heating system, you must leave the work to trained technicians. In fact, in many localities, it is illegal for anyone except licensed professionals to work on natural gas-powered heaters.

Thankfully, trained assistance for repair is readily available from Johns Refrigeration. We offer speedy, dependable heating repair services in Mesa, AZ and the surrounding areas, and we’ve helped homeowners stay comfortable since 1970. Call us whenever you experience difficulty with your residential heating system.

Why Heating Repairs Are Not DIY Jobs

Safety is the number one concern when it comes to fixing heating systems. The majority of home heaters are gas-powered furnaces, and it is vital that professionals handle any work associated with them. Not only are the repairs themselves potentially hazardous, but poorly done repair work can lead to a furnace that leaks carbon monoxide. Only professional work will give you reassurance after repairs are completed that the heater is working at its highest safety levels.

Even if you don’t have a gas furnace in your home but instead use an electric furnace or a heat pump, you still must leave repairs to professionals to make certain the work is done correctly. Modern furnaces and heat pumps are far too complex for amateurs to fix; in fact, simply diagnosing what is causing a malfunction is extremely difficult without years of training. An incorrectly applied repair is often worse than no repair at all.

Finally, professional heating repairs will go faster. Instead of struggling for hours or even days to perform repairs on your own that most likely won’t succeed anyway, you can call experienced technicians to take care of the work in only a fraction of the time.

The lure of saving money by going “do-it-yourself” may feel strong, but keep in mind that this is actually an illusion: a badly repaired heater will cost money because of future repairs and inefficient performance—and this is before you consider the potential safety risks! Don’t make this mistake: call on Johns Refrigeration for heating repair service in Mesa, AZ that will have your troubles solved for the long run.

How Does Energy Efficiency Factor into Furnace Installation?

Friday, December 19th, 2014

One of the main reasons to install a new furnace is to achieve better energy efficiency. But how do you know that your new system will be energy efficient? You’ll want to take a look at the AFUE rating.

What Is AFUE?

AFUE stands for annual fuel utilization efficiency, and it is the measurement of a furnace’s efficiency in converting fuel to energy. For instance, if you see an AFUE rating of 90%, this means that for every 100 units of fuel burned, your furnace will generate 90 BTUs (British thermal units). Put another way, an AFUE of 90% means that 90% of your total fuel usage goes toward heating your home; the rest is lost to exhaust that goes out your flue. Reviewing the AFUE rating will tell you not only how energy efficient the unit is, but how much money you can expect to save, depending on what the AFUE is. It is important to note that the higher the AFUE rating, the more expensive the unit will be.

ENERGY STAR Rating

A second way to assess whether or not a particular furnace is energy efficient is to see if it carries an ENERGY STAR sticker. The ENERGY STAR sticker will only appear on products that are at least 15% more efficient than the minimum standards. As such, any product with the ENERGY STAR sticker will have good energy efficiency.

Why Does This Matter?

Less fuel usage means lower monthly energy bills; the best way to achieve energy usage is to install an energy efficient furnace.

What Energy Efficiency Doesn’t Mean

There can sometimes be confusion about what having a more energy efficient furnace can mean, so we’ll explain here. Let’s say you are looking at a furnace with an AFUE of 95% versus a furnace with an AFUE of 90%. The furnace with the higher AFUE won’t heat your home better or faster than the furnace with the lower AFUE rating, it will heat it the same; the difference is that it will heat your home using less fuel, which is how a furnace with a higher energy efficiency rating can save you money.

Energy efficiency ratings can be a little confusing, so if you are having a hard time choosing a furnace for your home, call Johns Refrigeration today and schedule your furnace service in Mesa, AZ with one of our installation experts.

What Does NATE Stand for and Why Is It Important to My Heating Repair?

Friday, December 12th, 2014

One of the most important things you want to do when shopping for a new HVAC company is look at their certifications. Certification by professional organizations is one of the best ways to tell if your HVAC company actually has the expertise to take proper care of your HVAC system. One of the most well-known HVAC certification organizations is NATE. Let’s take a look at what NATE actually is, and why you should care.

NATE

NATE stands for North American Technician Excellence, and is a non-profit certification organization. It was founded in 1997 with the specific purpose of providing verification of expertise to professional HVAC companies across the country. NATE does this through the administration of difficult tests to gauge the knowledge of HVAC technicians. There are multiple tests, covering a wide range of HVAC topics. These tests are not purely academic, and are instead designed to gauge the actual ability of the technician to address various HVAC problems in the real world

Why is it Important?

NATE is not the only way to tell if your HVAC company is trustworthy. However, it is a nationally recognized metric and is widely used because of its reliability. If you hire a company comprised of NATE-certified technicians, you can be assured of their expertise. If your HVAC company doesn’t employ NATE-certified technicians, you might want to ask why. From the company’s standpoint, there really isn’t a good reason to avoid certifying their technicians. Unless, of course, they aren’t as qualified as they should be.

When you have a need for any sort of heating or air conditioning repair, you want someone working on it who knows what he or she is doing. Having inexpert technicians trying to fix your heating or air conditioning systems can make the problem much worse and require multiple subsequent visits. That’s the last thing you want.

If you’d like to know more about how NATE works, and why we certify all our technicians, call John’s Refrigeration. We provide heating repair throughout the Mesa area.
