Late Winter Repairs on Your Heater

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

Here in Mesa, AZ, our winters are short and mild, but we’re not through the current winter yet. We’re likely to get a few more cold spells before the temperatures finally start to climb. This is the time of year when we get more repair calls on heating systems than any other, as regular winter use can cause it to wear out and break down right in the home stretch. The sooner you can spot the kinds of problem that can lead to late winter repairs on your heater, the better.  Here’s a quick list of some things to watch out for as we head into the final month of winter. (more…)

Help! My Heating System Won’t Turn On!

Monday, February 8th, 2016

If your heating system fails to respond when you turn it on, then obviously there’s a problem. You should start by checking the breaker box in your home to see that power is flowing to it. If it is, and it still won’t turn on, make sure you cut power to it, then call in a repair service. It’s helpful to understand that there are numerous reasons why your heating system won’t turn on. It might have nothing to do with electricity, which is why you need a professional service to take care of it. Here is a list of a few possible causes.(more…)

Why get a home energy audit?

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

 If you want to maximize the comfort of your home and make sure it runs efficiently, you may want to consider a home energy audit in Scottsdale, AZ or the Phoenix metro area.

The energy audit is important because it assesses how much energy your home uses and breaks it down by area. Is the air running properly through the ducts? Is there enough insulation? There are many facets of energy use that go unnoticed when living in the desert climate and a home energy audit in Scottsdale, AZ can help you figure out how energy efficient your house is. It’s easy to assume that the majority of wasted energy results from running your air conditioning system during our scorching summers. But that’s not always the case! It can be because of window and door frame cracks. It can also be leaks coming from the duct work or the result of an older furnace or thermostat that’s causing the heating and cooling system in your house to work harder than it should.

A home energy audit will check every nook and cranny of your house so you don’t have to worry about where you’re losing energy and money. John’s Refrigeration runs blower door and air hood tests and uses an infrared camera and smoke sticks during the evaluation process to ensure the most accurate findings. The team inspects the home’s ductwork, attic, A/C, heating, lighting, and appliance usage.You would be surprised at how much one deficient factor affects the entire efficiency of a house!

Once the audit is complete, the team will outline where in your home it’s most valuable and necessary to make improvements. Then you can determine which (if not all) adjustments are feasible for your household and budget. Sometimes changes require updates to the heating and cooling system, and sometimes efficiency can be improved by how appliances are used. An energy audit will make you aware of your energy use, which is the first step in creating an energy efficient home.

Contact John’s Refrigeration to learn more about energy efficiency and to schedule an energy audit for your home.

Can Your Heater Get Too Hot?

Monday, February 1st, 2016

Winters don’t get too cold here in Mesa, AZ, but the desert nights are plenty chilly and chances are your heater has been seeing a lot of activity in the last few months. Generating heat is the furnace’s purpose. But believe it or not, it is possible for a furnace to get too hot. Or rather, it’s possible for a furnace to be unable to distribute the heat it generates effectively, which can spell big trouble for your system. Here’s how. (more…)

How to Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

Monday, January 25th, 2016

People tend to think of energy efficiency as strictly a winter affair, dealing with your home’s ability to retain heat and nothing else. Accordingly, many homeowners in Mesa, AZ tend to let it slip, since we worry far more about our hot summers than our comparatively mild winters in this part of the world. This can be a big mistake. Energy efficiency is a year round issue, and by taking a few steps to improve your home’s energy efficiency, you can save not only on heating bills this winter, but on air conditioning bills when high temperatures come around again. Here’s a few tips. (more…)

What Using an Old Heater Costs You

Monday, January 18th, 2016

It can get surprisingly cold here in Mesa, AZ, and your heating system will likely see a lot of use this time of year. Because we live in a desert, most of our energy is devoted to keeping our air conditioners in peak condition, which can lead to you using an older heater long after it should be put out to pasture. Installing a new heater now means you can start taking advantage of its numerous benefits right away. Waiting, on the other hand, could cost you a great deal more than you know. Old heaters can often be surprising cash sinks. (more…)

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!

 

What Are the Benefits of Modular Commercial HVAC Systems?

Monday, January 4th, 2016

Commercial HVAC systems have much different needs than residential systems, as any business owner or office manager here in Mesa, AZ can tell you. The space is often larger, for one thing, and the specific temperature is often far more than a matter of comfort. Accordingly, many business spaces opt to use modular units, which means multiple HVAC units all contributing to the heating and cooling needs of the building (as opposed to one centralized unit, which you usually find in residential homes). It may seem like a lot of extra work, especially when they’re first being installed, but in fact modular units provide a number of benefits that can specifically help commercial spaces. We’ve listed a few of the more important ones below: (more…)

Why do I need a ductless pump in Chandler, AZ?

Wednesday, December 30th, 2015

Ductless heat pumps are a great alternative for homes not configured for duct heating systems. These systems don’t use ducts; they are wall-mounted units that provide your home with heating and cooling. These units can be easily replaced, whereas a duct system may be in frequent need of repair. Each unit is connected to an outdoor condensing unit through electrical lines and refrigerant. Our technicians are certified and have the expertise installing ductless heat pumps in Chandler, AZ and throughout the east valley.

Ductless heat pump systems make sense for Arizona homes, because the winter’s mild desert climate does not demand running a heating system as much as those living in colder states. These units save money by only heating specific areas in the home. This type of system can help save up to 50% on electric heating or cooling costs, which is important when our summers can easily tip cooling costs into the $300 range. These systems are becoming more popular with Arizona homeowners due to the numerous benefits:

  • There’s a reduction in energy loss compared to regular duct heating, where some air gets lost in the vents. This doesn’t happen with ductless heating/cooling.
  • With zone control, you can adjust each unit individually to be at the temperature you’d like, saving on electricity bills.
  • Ductless heat pumps are more efficient (even as they age) than duct heating.

Ready to purchase a ductless heat pump, but not sure which size will work for your home? Don’t worry, John’s Refrigeration will assess your property, as well as talk to you about the way you use your home, and help you find the best solution to keep your home at the perfect temperature, be it summer or winter!

Is It Too Late to Get Heating Maintenance This Year?

Monday, December 21st, 2015

The holidays are here, and the weather has grown chilly in Mesa, AZ, which means most people will be running their heaters on a regular basis. The increased frequency of heater use may lead some residents to wonder if they might need heating maintenance, and to suspect that it may be too late in the season to schedule it. Instead, they’ll soldier on with their heater as is, and wait for the spring to think about maintenance. This can be a big mistake. It’s never too late to get heating maintenance this winter—especially if you haven’t serviced your system in a while—and the benefits can affect your household immediately. Now is the time to schedule maintenance if you haven’t done so already. (more…)
