Summers in Phoenix

May 5th, 2015

Summers in Phoenix mean two things for residents: high energy use from running air conditioners and the resulting high energy bills. That’s the bad news, but the good news is that you don’t have to stress about the summer anymore!

 

  • Stop being afraid of opening your energy bill.
  • Even though we live in the desert, the amount of dust in your home can be reduced.
  • South and west facing rooms are often the hottest in your home.
  • You and your family can have relief from the symptoms of allergy and asthma.
  • You don’t need the thermostat set at a higher (and uncomfortably warm) temperature just to save money.

The technicians of John’s Refrigeration are trained to assess and solve these and other problems related to the cooling system of your home.

Oftentimes our customers wait until the problem is bad without realizing that we offer ongoing maintenance plans so that we can catch and fix problems before you need a new system. We want you and your family to be healthy and comfortable in your home; especially during the hot Arizona summer!

If your system is 8-10 years old or more, we can replace it for as little as $25 per week.

Just Call John’s and one of our Comfort Consultants will visit your home, evaluate the needs of your family and system, and design a plan that fits your budget. Our solutions are 100% guaranteed!

3 Tips to Help Save on Air Conditioning Bills This Summer

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.

What MERV Rating Means for Your Air Filtration

April 27th, 2015

We are right now in the middle of allergy season, when even people with minor allergies and asthma can start to experience uncomfortable symptoms from the pollutants circulating through the air. At Johns Refrigeration, we take indoor air quality very seriously, and we want you to have the most pleasant conditions in your home as possible. We install a variety of filtration systems that will remove most of the allergens moving through your home’s air. Continue Reading

The Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat is Only 1 Way to Save (As seen on Sonoran Living Live)

April 23rd, 2015

Before summer gets here, take some easy steps now to lower your utility bills.

  • Change air filters monthly. Your HVAC system has to work harder if the filter is clogged. If you tend to forget about it, replace your filter when you receive your utility bill. Or Just Call John’s to join our filter service and we’ll bring out a year’s worth of filters so you have them on hand.
  • If you have an electrostatic air filter, then you only need to clean it once a month – not replace it.
  • Replacing window screens can do a lot towards lowering utility bills. Bug screens keep out bugs, but not the heat of the sun. Installing shade screens – or calling John’s to do it for you – can save you a lot of money.
  • Consider replacing your thermostat with a Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat. This thermostat learns your schedule and what temperature you like your house to be. You can control more than one room at a time with a wireless sensor, and even control the temperature of your house while you’re at work or on vacation.

John’s can help you with filters, shade screens, and programmable thermostats. Installing a Wi-Fi thermostat provides remote access from your smartphone, tablet, or PC, which means you’ll be able to save a lot on your energy bills

John’s also offers a free in-home evaluation can see where heat is coming into your home to determine what kinds of adjustments to your cooling system can be made.

Ductless Systems and Your Indoor Air Quality

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.

Plants That Trigger Allergies (and how a whole home air filter can help)

April 16th, 2015

Are you experiencing sneezing, wheezing, nasal congestion, a runny nose, or itchy, watery eyes? You might be experiencing allergies associated with the plants, flowers, grasses, trees, and weeds that are currently in bloom. While we need rain in the desert, it is making for a terrible allergy season. What can you do at your home to prevent triggering allergies? You can start by avoiding plants that trigger allergies.

What are allergies?  

When you have an allergy, you have a heightened sensitivity to an allergen – a foreign substance. Common allergies include dust, pollen, and pet dander. Your body overreacts when it encounters allergens, causing the immune system to go into overdrive. When this happens, you experience runny nose, itchy, watery eyes, and other symptoms.

Arizona Plants that Trigger Allergies

Arizona, especially the Phoenix area, is a place where native and non-native plants that trigger allergies exist together. If you can avoid some of these, you will experience fewer allergy symptoms. Native plants include a species of ambrosia called triangle lead bursage, mesquite, and Palo Verde. Non-native olive, white mulberry, Russian thistle, and common grasses including Bermuda, fescue, and perennial rye all trigger allergies.

Tips for Dealing with Allergies

Being uncomfortable during allergy season is bad enough, but if allergens in your home are causing you to sneeze, have itchy eyes, or experience other symptoms, it’s time to make a change.

  • Keep the house at a normal level of humidity to keep allergens like dust mites from reproducing.
  • Close windows and doors during high pollen days.
  • Obey the no-burn days.
  • Avoid down comforters and pillows.
  • Replace carpeting with tile or laminate flooring.
  • Take shoes off at the door so you’re not tracking dust, dirt, and other contaminants into the home.
  • Keep pets off your bed or out of bedrooms.
  • Regularly bathe pets to cut back on allergy inducing dander.

At John’s Refrigeration, we often recommend installing a whole home air filter that will decrease the dust, pollen, and other contaminants in the home. Kitchen and pet odors will be nearly non-existent and the air in your will be clean and allergen free. Just Call John’s today to learn more.

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

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.)

Ways to Raise Awareness about Allergy & Asthma Awareness Month

April 9th, 2015

May is the height of allergy season, making it the perfect time for Allergy & Asthma Awareness Month. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America promotes the education and increased awareness of allergies and asthma across the nation. Their mission is to help communities understand the impact of environmental and food allergies to their citizens.

While John’s Refrigeration isn’t an expert on food allergies, we know a few things about creating a healthy environment in the home. Dust, pollen, dirt, and other contaminants can make it a struggle for many people to be outside. We make it our mission to help our customers breathe easy in their homes.

Did you know….the air in your home can be dirtier than the air outside?

It’s true. Your home can actually suffer symptoms of difficulty breathing, a sort of asthma attack inside the home. This occurs when the ducts are not sealed properly and/or when you’re not using a properly sized air filter. These conditions cause the system to work harder – breathe heavier. You see the effect of this extra effort in the form of higher utility bills.

What can you do to treat the asthma of your home?

The simple answer is to Just Call John’s. Our team of certified technicians will come to your home, assess the current system, make recommendations for repairs and upgrades, and get your home breathing easy. We also perform valuable services to make sure your home is breathing easier:

  • Test Indoor Air Quality to understand if there are allergens and contaminants making you or your family feel less than healthy.
  • Perform an Energy Audit to determine where your home is costing you money and energy efficiency.
  • Join the Peak Performance Club, which provides annual maintenance to the entire system of your home. We can catch repairs before they become replacements.

Raise awareness about Allergy & Asthma Awareness Month this May when you Just Call John’s to have the air in your home tested. Here’s to your health and comfort!

3 Reasons to Schedule Spring Air Conditioning Maintenance

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.
