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!

How important is it to breathe clean air in your home? (As seen on Sonoran Living Live)

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Our owner, Andrew John, was recently featured on the TV show, Sonoran Living Live, where he spoke about keeping the air in your home clean.

Did you know the air in your home can be dirtier than the air outside? It’s true and we have a solution.

The whole home air purifier is the solution to cleaning the air in your home.

We don’t always see what’s in the air. Dust, pollen, smoke, pet dander, odors, bacteria, and viruses are in our homes making us feel sick and our homes smell not-so-fresh. Pets, garbage, and cooking odors are among the top smells our customers want eliminated from their homes.

Getting dust, pollen, dirt, and other contaminants out of the air is especially important if you or members of your family have chronic allergies and asthma.

How many air purifiers do I need in my home?

You need as many purifiers as you have A/C units for your home.

How often does the air purifier run?

Ideally, the air purifier runs when the central fan is running in your home. We recommend the air purifier run 24 hours a day, just like the one at Andrew’s house.

How does it work?

There is a catalyst and a light that help kill bacteria and viruses, and they also clean the odors caused by pets and cooking.

Click the video to see Andrew’s complete presentation on Sonoran Living Live.

 

 

Call 480-648-2094 to schedule your FREE in-home consultation to determine if an air purifier is right for your home.

 

When you Just Call John’s, you’re calling the experts who have been serving Mesa and the surrounding area since 1970. It’s our mission to make your home comfortable, safe, and healthy for you, your family, and your pets.

Is Arizona Air Quality Getting any Better?

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

When it comes to Arizona air quality, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has deemed it improved and within federal standards. The changes were focused in Maricopa County, where about 80% of the state’s population resides. Focus is now moving to Pinal and Yuma counties, where there is still a need to improve air quality.

What happens when air quality is poor?

At John’s Refrigeration, we talk a lot about indoor air quality, but the air outside is just as important. Breathing conditions, including asthma and allergies, are worse when air quality is low. You sneeze more. Your chest feels heavier and you may be getting winded when you’re exercising outside. These are all signs of poor air quality.

What was done to improve Arizona air quality?

Eric Massey, Air Quality Division Director at the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, said the number one reason improvement happened was partnership of local, state, and national stakeholders, including the EPA. They came together to offer “common solutions to common air quality problems.” [Source]

What were the challenges?

The biggest challenges to improving Arizona air quality were:

  • Best practices that work in other parts of the country weren’t going to work here due to funding and climate.
  • Cost of improvements and compliance monitoring was limited.

For example, in many places, watering the dust is a way to keep air quality at an acceptable level. In Arizona, we don’t have enough water to do this, so officials had to look at other solutions.

Another example is that Arizona doesn’t have funding for the number of air quality inspectors that we need. By creating solutions that were acceptable across a variety of industries and government entities, we created an organically compliant system. Each agency had a stake in improving – and continuing to improve – air quality. That means less inspectors are needed.

What can we do to maintain this level of air quality?

Over the winter, we hear about no-burn days being in effect. These are days designated by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality and Maricopa Air Quality Department as days when wood-burning fireplaces, chimineas, and other wood burning sources are not to be used. Burning on these days traps particulate matter that aggravates breathing problems and puts young children and the elderly at greater risk.

Complying with no-burn days is a way to directly help your neighbors breathe easier, as well as help the county and state maintain a healthy level of air quality.

Improving air quality in AZ is a team effort of agencies, businesses, and neighbors who have a collective mission to keep air quality at safe and healthy levels.

AC Efficiency: Don’t Let the Other Guys Fool You

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

When it comes to the safety, comfort, and energy efficiency of your home, don’t let the other guys fool you into thinking they have the best deal or service for your AC efficiency. Do your homework. Ask questions. And choose an A/C company that is reliable, trained and certified, and focused on customer care. (HINT: That’s the team at John’s Refrigeration)

 

You get what you pay for

You’ve probably heard that phrase a number of times from a number of different people, but what does it really mean? It means that on the front end you might choose an HVAC company based on price and you end up having to call another company to fix the AC efficiency problem – either the original problem or a new one. John’s has a commitment to quality workmanship and customer satisfaction that influences every decision we make.

We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all of our services, have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, a 2011 Angie’s List Super Service Award, and were awarded the 2013 Gilbert Chamber of Commerce Family Business of the Year award. In other words, John’s can back up what it says and is worth the cost.

Commitment to Service

We are dedicated to making the air in your home safe and comfortable for you and your family. We work with you until you are 100% satisfied with our work.

Our certified technicians will perform a complete inspection of the HVAC system so that we understand where there may be a need for repair in order to maximize your AC efficiency. We want you to be able to make an informed decision about the level of service we will provide to you.

The inspection includes the unit as well as the ductwork and can, as requested or as part of the Peak Performance Club, test indoor air quality and carbon monoxide levels.

Red Carpet Treatment

We understand HVAC work is a dirty job and we’re committed to keeping your home clean. Each time our technicians visit your home, they will literally roll out the red carpet and cover their shoes before entering your home. In the month of October, we covered our shoes with pink covers to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is just one of the ways we support the community.

Community Involvement

We’re active members of the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce and our own Andrew John is a member of the Board at East Valley Institute of Technology (EVIT).

Service is about more than a great price. It’s a commitment to customers and community. The next time you need an A/C professional, Just Call John’s. We’re here to help

Become Part of the John’s Refrigeration Team!

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

As a locally owned and operated family business, the team at John’s Refrigeration is always looking for ways to give back to the community and attract talented employees. Our own Andrew John recently appeared on 90.7/92.7 Pulse Radio to talk about his involvement with East Valley Institute of Technology (EVIT) as a member of the HVAC Advisory Committee.

John’s Refrigeration is celebrating 44 years in business. We like to say we’re born in the desert and are built to last. According to Andrew, he has been part of the business since he was old enough to climb a ladder. While that’s not far from the truth, his days in HVAC started as a student at EVIT when it was called Mesa Vo-Tech. Since that time, he has mentored and hired students to work for John’s Refrigeration.

What is it like being a technician for John’s Refrigeration?

Andrew and the team at John’s operate in an ethical and honest manner with all employees and customers: “We pay our employees to be efficient and to do the right thing.”

In other words, you can rest assured you’re not being upsold when you work with our team. Technicians are paid well for providing high quality customer care and staying up to date on training and education. For these reasons, John’s Refrigeration is a great employment opportunity for HVAC professionals.

Our goal is to give our technicians the education and training they need to provide provable solutions to our customers, including:

  • Helping the system operate more efficiently and economically
  • Providing a comfortable and safe environment for you and your family
  • Making the system last a long time

We believe in being comprehensive. While the customer may want all of the solutions today, we want to make sure they have all the information about their HVAC system.

A word about service calls.

While we wish we could provide free service calls, we do have to cover the cost of sending a technician to your house. In cases where the problem may have been misdiagnosed, we do offer a free diagnostic. We will tell you when we get to the point where we understand the problem. While we try to be comprehensive, we understand you may not want to pay for a service call, so we stop our work, providing you with the free diagnostic and estimate.

Why choose the HVAC industry?

There are always jobs in this industry. Andrew says you don’t have to worry about being laid off and can plan ahead for you and your family. Jobs start at $12-15 per hour based on experience and John’s Refrigeration offers opportunity to grow professionally and financially.

Why is Andrew John part of the HVAC Advisory Committee at EVIT?

He believes EVIT does a great job providing kids with a real world education. From this foundation, John’s Refrigeration can help them grow and learn in the HVAC industry. For more information about EVIT and John’s Refrigeration, visit www.justcalljohns.com.

 

What does being a family heating and cooling business mean to you?

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Being a family heating and cooling business means more than just running a business with family members. Simply stated, being a family business means we care about our community and customers as if they were our own friends and family.

 

Customer Satisfaction

We offer a 100% money-back guarantee to all customers, as well as a lifetime workmanship guarantee. We aren’t happy with our work until our customers are happy with our work.

Local Customer Service

When was the last time you called an 800-number and spoke to a live person? It has probably been a while or at least a trek through automated responses before you could talk to someone. At John’s Refrigeration, we are dedicated to providing local customer service. When you call our office during business hours, you will speak directly with a member of our local office. Working with you, they will help get your questions answered and problems solved.

Choose Local When You Can

Choosing John’s Refrigeration means you’re choosing to work with a locally owned business; supporting the local economy. According to Local First Arizona, for every $100 spent with a locally owned company, $73 stays in the area, compared to only $43 when purchasing from a big box or other non-local business.

Community Investment

Your community is our community. As a member of the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce, we are dedicated to supporting the Gilbert and Mesa communities through business networking and charitable events. We’re also dedicated to hiring people from within our community and understand the value of local hiring to stimulate job growth and the local economy.

Being a family heating and cooling business goes beyond hiring our loved ones. It means we have the opportunity to serve the community and help each of our local businesses grow. Thank you for choosing local!

School is Out for Summer in Gilbert: Fun Ways to Stay Cool

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

School is out for the summer, which means mom and dad are trying to find ways to entertain the kids while staying cool. The Gilbert and Mesa areas bring many opportunities to do just that. From trampoline parks to discounted movies, museums, and aquariums, there’s no shortage of things to do this summer.

 

  1. One of the best places to stay cool in the summer is the movie theater. The Dickinson Free Summer Movie Series is happening in Mesa and Goodyear in June and July on select dates. Bring your Harkins cups for $1.25 refills. Speaking of Harkins, they are running the popular Summer Movie Fun with discounted ticket prices, 10 movies over 10 weeks for kids at less than $1 per movie.
  2. Stay indoors and learn at a number of the local museums, including the Children’s Museum of Phoenix, Arizona Science Center, and more when you take advantage of the Culture Pass program. Use your library card to get FREE and discounted passes to a number of museums across the Valley.
  3. Explore the ocean world at SEA LIFE Arizona, the aquarium at the Arizona Mills Mall. Learn who (and what) lives at the bottom of the ocean floor and get a closer look at seahorses, starfish, sharks, rays, and more. Receive a discount when you purchase tickets online.
  4. Enjoy fun in the sun and water when you experience Salt River Tubing with friends and family. Use sunscreen and bring lots of water for the summer adventure. Group rates are available.
  5. For indoor games and rides, check out Amazing Jakes in Mesa.
  6. If bowling and laser tag are more your style, take the kids to FlipSide in Gilbert. They call themselves “the awesomestbowling alley & family entertainment center” and will not disappoint.
  7. And when the kids (or you) are going a bit stir crazy, check out the jump parks Jumpstreet or Xtreme Air in Chandler for a hopping good time.

Enjoy the fun while staying cool and let us know where you are spending time with the family this summer!

5 Ways to Make Every Day Earth Day in Gilbert Arizona

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Even though Earth Day was last week, Gilbert Arizona is a great place to make every day Earth Day. From the 350+ days of sunshine to the hiking trails, there are opportunities to enjoy the outdoors year round. Being in the desert makes us more conscious of our water use – or it should – and we can all save a little on summer utility bills while helping the environment.

Here are five ways to make every day Earth Day in Gilbert Arizona:

  1. Go outside. There’s nothing better than the sun shining on your face. Enjoy the outdoors by taking a walk with a friend or play outside with your family. Take advantage of the near-perfect weather we have here in Arizona!
  2. Use less water. Turn the tap off when you’re brushing your teeth. It saves as much as four gallons a minute!
  3. Save electricity. Turn off lights when you leave the room. Cover south facing windows. They get the most sun throughout the year, heating up your home, and causing the A/C to run non-stop.
  4. Use reusable grocery bags. The average family visits the grocery store more than once a week. That makes for a lot of plastic and paper bags going to the landfill. Opt instead for reusable bags and make it ZERO bags going to the landfill.
  5. Hang clothes outside. There’s almost nothing better than the smell of clean sheets. Hanging clothes and linens outside saves the energy you would spend using the clothes dryer. And in Arizona, laundry doesn’t take long to dry!

 

Imagine how great a world it would be if we each made one small change to make every day Earth Day! If you’d like to learn about even more ways to save energy and money, read our blog, 10 Ways to Save Energy in Your Home.
