Ways to Stay Cool in Phoenix

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

With temperatures still above 100°, the metro Phoenix area continues to experience extreme heat. We’ve all heard the mantra to drink more water, draw the curtains in your home to keep out the sun, and to limit the amount of time spent outdoors in order to not become overwhelmed by the desert heat. But there are other ways to stay cool in Phoenix, too.


  • Something as simple as eating smaller meals, or grazing, instead of eating three large meals a day can help keep you cool. The body has to work to digest what we eat, which heats us up. 
  • Placing a bed sheet in a baggie in the freezer an hour or so before bedtime and then sleeping under or on it can help cool your body temperature down, too.
  • Filling a hot water bottle with ice instead and keeping it near your feet while you sleep also helps.
  • Submerging your feet and/or arms into cool or cold water almost instantly cools our core body temperature. Even the occasional ice cube placed on the wrists offers quick relief.

Years ago, before air conditioning became as commonplace as it is now, people placed bowls of ice in front of fans and the air moving across the ice would cool down a small room or anyone who sat in front of it. Hanging a wet sheet in front of a fan – taking care the sheet doesn’t get pulled into the fan’s blades – also works to cool down an area. These tips would be great to use outdoors on a porch during the hot summer months.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention states “Air-conditioning is the number one protective factor against heat-related illness and death.” Making sure your a/c is running correctly is what John’s Refrigeration Heating and Cooling does. As your home comfort partner, John’s has Certified Service Consultants ready to help keep you and your family cool and safe. But we’ll still remind you to drink water, too.

Six DIY Energy Saving Tips for Homeowners

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

Making your home energy efficient is complicated business. From sealing and insulation to how we live in our home, there are many ways to lose energy efficiency. At Johns Refrigeration we offer a 51-point inspection of the HVAC system including the ductwork of the home. Our Peak Performance Home Evaluation includes air and pressure balancing or pressure checks, an option for incorporating a fresh air component to the system and more. As a homeowner, there also things you can do to make your home more efficient.

Did you know? As much as 80% of energy savings comes from 20% of needed repairs which is why we offer the following six DIY energy saving tips for homeowners:

  1. Sealing around wall or ceiling registers: By sealing the registers you are helping to eliminate dust, dirt, pollen, other contaminants and hot air from entering your home via the attic and air-conditioning system.
  2. Insulating and sealing the attic hatch is a forgotten task for many homeowners. It’s a place where air can be lost or drafts can occur decreasing the efficiency of the HVAC system and increasing energy costs to you.
  3. Install shade screens on the outside of the home. This actually has a greater return on investment (ROI) than replacing windows and doors, at least here in the Arizona desert. The shades prevent the sun from heating the home as much as its non-shaded counterparts. It will take less energy too cool it saving homeowners energy costs.
  4. Stop closing doors. Many homeowners are under the false assumption that closing doors helps save energy when the opposite is actually true. Ideally the entire home should be at a neutral pressure. Closing doors causes a positive or negative environment which causes cool air to escape or brings hot air and contaminants in from outside the home. Keeping the doors open helps keep pressure closer to neutral and your system working more efficiently saving you money.
  5. Programmable thermostats are a great way to regulate energy use and utility cost. Some even have the option of controlling the HVAC system right from your cell phone! Check out our article about selecting and installing the right thermostat for your home.
  6. Choosing the right air filter can not only make your home energy efficient, it will also lower your energy costs. Select a filter that is low resistance and high efficiency. If the filter you use is “sucked” into the space, you are using a filter that has too high a resistance. You’re actually making the system work harder; it’s like it is breathing through a small tube or having an asthma attack – the system has to work harder to cool your home. Less resistance is like breathing without asthma – it is smooth and efficient. We recommend the Aire Care filters which are low resistance and 84% efficient. Call us to learn more about these filters.


If you have questions or concerns about these energy saving tips and the energy efficiency of your home, please contact us at 480-648-2400 to schedule an appointment.

Tips to Keep Your Pet Cool from John’s Refrigeration Family Heating and Cooling

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013


With the heat warnings in Phoenix, John’s Refrigeration your family heating and cooling company, would like to consider your furry family members. When you are hot, they must be miserable. After all, how would you like to be outside in a fur coat?

Pets die every year from heat stroke according to the Humane Society, and the worst part for pet owners is knowing it was preventable.  John’s Refrigeration gives quick and easy tips on preventing these tragedies by explaining how to help keep four-footed furry friends cool.


  • Never leave your pet in your car. It takes very little time for a car to heat up: In 100 degree weather, it takes only 15 minutes to get to 140 degrees inside the car.
  • Keep your pet hydrated. Supply a large bowl full of water in the shade. Make sure it’s fresh to keep out germs from birds and bugs.
  • Make sure your pet has plenty of shade. Especially if they are bound to a limited space.
  • Do not run with your pet during the hot part of the day. Dogs are so loyal, they will put themselves at risk if we ask them to.
  • Spray your pet down with cool water before leaving for work.
  • Know the signs of heat stroke and call your veterinarian right away. DANGER SIGNS: rapid panting • bright red tongue • red or pale gums • thick, sticky saliva, depression • weak/dizzy • vomiting/diarrhea • shock • coma. An overheating dog may appear sluggish, unresponsive or disorientated. Gums, tongue and conjunctiva of the eyes may be bright red. Eventually he will collapse, suffer a seizure and may go into a coma.
  • If you think your pet is suffering from heatstroke, immediately remove him or her to a cool, shady area. Try to lower the animal’s temperature by placing in cool, not cold, water. Apply ice to the head and neck. Get to a veterinarian as soon as possible–follow-up care will be critical to survival.

What is HVAC?

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

Literally speaking, HVAC is an acronym for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. But what exactly does that mean?

Most people associate a Central Air Conditioning System with HVAC. This is a system in which air is treated at a central location in a home or other building and distributed to and from rooms by one or more fans and a series of ducts.

The heating part of an HVAC system usually refers to the way air, water, or steam is heated using a boiler, furnace, or heat pump to distribute air – via ductwork – throughout the space. Ventilating is the process of removing or changing air in a space to create a different temperature or to reduce or remove moisture, odors, smoke, dust, or even airborne bacteria within a space by bringing air in from the outside to replace inside air. Air conditioning is simply the removal of heat from a space.


The largest component of your home’s HVAC system is the outdoor unit (a condenser) and an indoor unit (an evaporator coil). Another main component of an HVAC system is the ductwork.HVAC systems help control the environment (temperature, humidity, air flow, and air filtering) and keep occupants comfortable by regulating the temperature and air flow by using air distribution to deliver and remove air from different spaces. These systems are also important to the health of the occupants, because a well regulated and maintained system will keep a home free from mold and other harmful pollutants.

Because the HVAC system in your home uses more energy and drains more energy dollars than any other system in your home, it’s important that it’s sized correctly. Otherwise, the result will be an inefficient system that will not only cost more money in the long run, but won’t cool or heat a space properly. The efficiency of HVAC systems is rated by a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), typically ranging from 13 to 23, with the highest numbers indicating the most efficient units that offer the most energy savings year after year.


After one of John’s Refrigeration Heating and Cooling NATE certified technicians reviews your HVAC system, we’ll diagnose the problem, explain what needs to be done, and make sure you understand your options.

We’ll also present you with a guaranteed price before starting any work so there are no surprises later on. Equally important, our trucks are stocked with hundreds of parts, allowing us to complete most repairs during that initial visit to your home, which means a faster return to full indoor comfort. What’s more, we back all of our repairs, parts, and labor with a two year warranty.

John’s HVAC installation, repair, and maintenance services will make you feel comfortable, all the way around.
