Are You Getting Ready to Turn on Your Cooling System?

Friday, April 4th, 2014

Right now, spring is treating us to warm and pleasant weather in Mesa, AZ. You may have already turned on your home’s cooling system, whether switching the heat pump to “cool” or activating the central air conditioner, for a few days. However, the real heat is lurking right around the corner, and that’s when your air conditioning will truly begin to earn it keep for the year.

Summers in the Valley of the Sun can turn brutal. We have some tips from HVAC experts to help make your transition into full-bore air conditioning mode go with as few troubles as possible.

Johns Refrigeration is here to help you switch to the summer heat. We have a maintenance program to prepare your system, and offer air conditioning repairs in Mesa, AZ for those times when the best preparations can’t stop malfunctions.

Here are a few things to consider before your AC comes on for the season

  • Schedule regular maintenance: You should always have a maintenance technician inspect your air conditioning and give it a tune-up once a year, and spring is the best time to have the work done so the system will be in top condition for the summer heat. An air conditioner running at its best will also operate without cost overruns, keeping your electric bill from making abrupt spikes.
  • Handle any repair needs: A maintenance check will identify places where you air conditioner should have repairs done before turning on for the season. You may already know about possible malfunctions because of unusual behavior from the unit (strange noises, a drop in airflow). Don’t procrastinate about scheduling the work to fix these problems: getting trapped in the summer heat waiting for repairs for a broken unit is no fun.
  • Change the air filter: This is a part of air conditioner and heat pump maintenance you can do on your own. The air filter that protects the inside of the system from damage will develop dirt and dust clogs while it works, and unless it’s changed regularly for a clean filter, it will start to cut off airflow and permit particles to enter the cabinet. During cooling season, you should change the filter once a month.

Start with maintenance

An annual maintenance program is the best way to protect your home’s cooling (as well as your budget). Call Johns Refrigeration and join our Peak Performance Club. Membership grants you priority scheduling and special discounts. You can select different levels of membership depending on your needs and budget.

Make sure you enjoy a cool summer in Mesa, AZ with air conditioning repair and maintenance from Johns Refrigeration.

3 Factors to Consider with Air Conditioning Installation

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

A new air conditioner is a significant investment in your home, but as your old one slowly breaks down, it may be time to think of a new one. Spring is here and the cooling season is fast approaching. Now is the time to get rid of a wasteful or inefficient system in favor of one that can lower your cooling bills significantly once it’s installed. Here in Mesa, air conditioning installation services will be happy to put a new unit into your home. As with any purchase of this size, however, you need to prepare things properly before pulling the trigger.

Here are 3 factors to consider with air conditioning installation.

  • Sizing the unit. Air conditioners need to have enough power to cool your entire home, but not so much that they cycle on and off multiple times throughout the day. (Cycling is very hard on the unit and costs you wasted energy). Sizing it properly means factoring in the square footage of your home, as well as the presence of insulation and more nebulous factors like sunlight exposure. A trained technician can inspect your home and perform the proper calculations for you.
  • Getting an efficient unit. Air conditioning efficiency is measured in SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings, detailing how effective the unit is at doing its job. The higher the rating, the more effective the air conditioner, and less it will cost in monthly fees to properly cool the house. Look for units with the highest SEER rating in you price bracket; the monthly savings they provide will help offset the cost of installation.
  • Adding bells and whistles. If you’re in the market for upgrades, you might think about adding a heat pump (which combines the duties of a heater and an air conditioner) rather than a more traditional air conditioning unit., You might also consider a zone control system, either installed into your existing ducts or added as part of a mini ductless split system. This is a good time to consider such changes, since they’re easier during the installation stage.

For more factors to consider with air conditioning installation here in Mesa, give Johns Refrigeration a call. We have the tools and experience to do the job right and we’ll give it our all to deliver the air conditioner you need.

App-Accessible Thermostats

Friday, March 14th, 2014

The ability to control your thermostat from just about anywhere is one of those conveniences that, once you have, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without. In order to control your home’s thermostat remotely, though, you need to download an app onto your smart phone or other mobile device. The app is free to install and not only very functional, but can save you a lot of money on your utility bill, too.

 

App-accessible thermostats are great for when you are away from home for spring break, a long weekend, or a vacation of any length. Being able to remotely control the temperature in your house when you are away from it means being able to take control of the amount of money you still have to pay your utility company even when you are not at home.

Installing an app-accessible thermostat should be done by a professional because of the electrical knowledge required to safely connect this appliance. These pre-programmable, app-accessible thermostats represent one of the most sophisticated and innovative items on the market today. Its high level of accessibility, usability, and convenience when paired with a mobile device makes it a product too handy to overlook.

This type of thermostat works with most HVAC systems, but it’s a good idea to contact a reputable company like John’s Refrigeration Heating and Cooling to ensure that it is compatible. One of John’s N.A.T.E. certified technicians will review your HVAC system and install and program one of these state-of-the-art thermostats so you can vacation without worrying whether you turned the a/c down or the heat off. We want you to have no trouble Setting Your Thermostat When You Are Away and enjoy your much deserved break from everyday life.

Setting Your Thermostat When You Are Away

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

If you are planning on going away on vacation for spring break – or even sometime later in the year – you may want to set your home’s thermostat at a level that saves you money while you’re away. After all, your couch doesn’t need to enjoy lower temperatures when it’s scorching hot outside and you’re not home. But you also don’t want candles to melt or electronic devices to suffer, either. Plus, a home’s furniture holds onto heat, which makes it more difficult to cool a house down if the temperature has been left at too high a setting for long periods of time.

 

We’ve mentioned some of the benefits of Programmable Thermostats before, but can’t speak enough to their convenience and efficiency, especially if you and your family plan on being away from home for an extended period of time. Pre-programming your HVAC unit’s thermostat is one of the easiest and least expensive actions you can take to save energy and money.

If you are not sure how to change the settings on your programmable thermostat, call us to see if we can help. John’s can install a programmable thermostat for you if you don’t currently have one and if we do, we will program it for you based on your schedule. We’ll also make sure you know how to re-schedule it for your regular, daily schedule, too.

There’s no reason you should have a high utility bill if you’re not at home, but we also want to make sure your home will be at a comfortable temperature upon your return. Spring break, lengthy vacation, or long weekend away, there’s no reason you can’t take a break from worrying about the temperature in your home while you’re enjoying yourself. Just Call John’s Refrigeration today.

A/C Tune Up

Monday, March 10th, 2014

Although it’s still early in the year, those of us in the Phoenix metro area do live in the desert, so it will get hot again before we know it. Think ahead and schedule you’re a/c tune-up today. In order to run efficiently, your HVAC unit needs to be properly and regularly maintained. Tune-ups are required in order to ensure your home’s HVAC system is able to provide you with cool, refreshing air when you need it, as well as heated air during the chilly desert evenings.

 

John’s offers several inspection options to make sure your unit is performing the way it’s supposed to in order to save you money while keeping you comfortable. Our Peak Performance Club members receive annual maintenance visits, priority service, 24/7 emergency HVAC services, and much more, including access to certain guarantees and warranties. But anyone can contact us to check out their home’s a/c unit.

As a homeowner, you are responsible to make sure your family is healthy inside your home and keeping up on the maintenance of the a/c unit by having John’s inspect it gives you peace of mind. Maintaining the HVAC system so it runs efficiently also saves you energy and money by keeping your utility bills lower.

Running your system means it’s working to cool or heat your home. We want to keep it working so that you stay cool and comfortable before the temperatures rise to over 100 degrees. Schedule an appointment for one of our NATE-certified technicians to inspect your unit now so we can help keep you comfortable all year long.

What is a Home Air Cleaner?

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Clean air in your home not only means having to dust less often, but being able to breathe easier. Indoor air is often dirtier than outside air if your HVAC unit and its ductwork aren’t properly installed and maintained. Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to the development of infections and asthma. It can also cause headaches, eye, nose, throat, and respiratory irritation, coughing, difficulty concentrating, sensitivity to odors, muscle pain, and fatigue.

 

One of the best ways to improve the quality of air in your home is to remove those contaminants with a whole home air cleaner, such as an air filtering or air purification system. John’s Refrigeration Heating and Cooling offers several solutions to your air quality problems. Our air filters and air purifiers are installed in your home’s ductwork where they can interact with the optimal amount of air.

John’s offers several home air cleaner services like our Filtered Fresh Air System, air filtering, air purification, duct repair and replacement. These types of services are designed to prevent contaminants like dust, pollen, pet dander, and VOC’s from getting into your home and polluting your air.  Just Call John’s. We’ll make you feel comfortable, all the way around.

Symptoms of Asthma and Your HVAC

Monday, February 10th, 2014

If you or a family member has asthma, your heating and air conditioning system can either be contributing to symptoms of asthma or causing asthma attacks by harboring and spreading allergens. Or, if your HVAC system is running efficiently, it could be creating an environment that helps you manage your allergy symptoms and keeps the air inside your home healthier and cleaner. A properly functioning HVAC system can help reduce indoor allergens in part by maintaining a consistent indoor environment free from external, airborne irritants.

Central a/c can help asthmatics breathe, sleep, and live easier, but only if the system is working the way it is supposed to be. In order to maximize the effectiveness of your HVAC unit, it must be maintained properly. Between proper air balancing, duct sealing, and using the correct filter, you can prevent pollen and other allergens from getting in your house, significantly reducing allergies and asthma symptoms.

Have the unit serviced annually by a certified HVAC contractor and you will dramatically improve the air quality in your home while also prolonging the life of your heating and air conditioning system by stopping dirt and other small particles from getting to the mechanical components that make up the unit.

 

Since the allergens found in indoor air are mostly tiny irritants such as pollen and bacteria, as well as pet dander, cockroach, and other insect pest particles, they are easily inhaled. It is important that people with asthma maintain a healthy indoor environment in order to reduce exposure to these indoor asthma triggers. Not only can poor indoor air quality make the symptoms of asthma worse for someone who already has it, but it may also play a role in the development of asthma in more susceptible people, like small children.

Keeping the air in your home free of these allergens is an important step towards keeping your family healthy. Call John’s so we can address any symptoms of asthma you may be experiencing, service your HVAC unit, and discuss which filter is best for your system. Because we are your indoor comfort specialists.

HVAC Preventative Tips Follow-Up

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

When your home’s HVAC system runs well, it’s easy to not remember it still requires regular maintenance to continue running smoothly. As a homeowner, there’s a lot you can do to make sure you stay cool in your home during the middle of the summer in Phoenix and that you’re warm when it’s cooler outside.

Here are a few simple tips to try on your own:

  • Remember that people generate heat. So lower the thermostat a degree or two if you’re expecting family to visit during our mild Arizona winters or if you’re expecting to entertain a large group of guests.
  • Find the places where air can sneak into your home, including around outlet covers, and caulk or use weather-stripping around these areas, as well as around all entrance doors and windows.
  • Make sure fireplaces have tight-fitting dampers, which can be closed to keep cold winter air – or hot air in the summer – from entering your home when the fireplace is not in use.
  • You can prolong the life and increase the efficiency of your system if you regularly change your unit’s air filter.
  • Ensure there’s at least two feet of clearance around your outdoor unit for maximum air flow.
  • To assure proper air flow inside the home, don’t block vents or ducts.
  • A programmable thermostat will allow you to keep your home’s temperature constant and can easily be set to warm up the house in the morning during the winter or cool your house down before you get home from work in the summer.

 

If you’ve done the DIY stuff and still spend more than you like on heating or cooling your home, call John’s! We’ll make you feel comfortable, all the way around.

Save with SRP’s Duct Test and Repair Rebate

Monday, January 20th, 2014

Does your home have rooms that are too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter? The culprit may be leaky ducts. SRP’s Duct Test and Repair rebate helps you identify where in your home energy may be escaping. 

Approximately 20% of the air that moves through the duct system in many homes is lost because of improper installation. If ductwork becomes loose after time or is jarred during construction or remodeling, leaks can also easily occur, allowing heated or cooled air to escape into your home’s attic, where temperatures can exceed 140 degrees during our fierce, desert summers.

Loose ducts can pull in dusty air from the attic or even from outside, which ends up being the air you breathe inside your home. The ductwork in a home is like the veins of the body, moving the air (blood) throughout the home. Repairing any leaky ducts ensures the air inside your home stays safe and healthy, keeping your family healthy, as well.

An average of 50% of your annual energy bill is spent on running your heating/cooling system. SRP’s current offer gives homeowners up to $75.00 based on the cost of duct testing and up to $175.00 based on the cost of duct repairs. For example, if you were to have a minimum of $400.00 in repairs and testing done, you would qualify for a $250.00 rebate from SRP. The rebate does take 6-8 weeks to receive, but we file all the paperwork for you. John’s offers duct sealing services year round, but using SRP’s rebate can save you money now, so it’s a great time to have your ducts checked out!

John’s is one of the few contractors who hold the required BPI certification to qualify you for the SRP Duct Test and Repair rebate program. Test and all repairs must be completed by April 30, 2014, so call us today at 480-718-1172 to schedule your appointment or to find out if you qualify for the SRP rebate.
