Questions about HVAC maintenance in Phoenix

What are the benefits of regular HVAC maintenance?

Keep Your Family Safe

Exposure to carbon monoxide is a serious problem that sends 15,000 people to emergency rooms and kills 500 people every year. Our technicians inspect your gas lines and HVAC equipment to make sure there is no risk of carbon monoxide exposure in your home.

Save on Monthly Energy Bills

Regular maintenance allows your heating and cooling equipment to operate much more efficiently, which saves money every month on your energy bills.

Use Your Warranty

If you have a major malfunction with your heating or cooling system, your manufacturer’s warranty can cover the cost … IF you get regular maintenance on your system. Read the fine-print, and you’ll see that your warranty only applies when you have a maintenance plan.

What are signs that my AC or heat pump needs service?

Some signs that you need to service your AC or heat pump:

– Thermostat setting doesn’t reflect what your home feels like
– Your AC frequently turns on and off
– Your AC blows out warm air
– You or your family members experience sniffles and sneezes
– Weak airflow from the vents
– Your AC emits funky or foul smells
– You notice leaking water around the unit

If you notice any of these signs, give us a call right away: (623) 581-5298

Regular maintenance can also help prevent these problems and improve the efficiency of your AC. 

HVAC maintenance vs. HVAC service

Here’s the difference:

HVAC service refers to when you need a repair done or when there’s a problem with your heating or cooling system.

HVAC maintenance refers to taking preventative measures that help improve the performance and extend the life of your system.

HVAC service usually involves diagnosing and fixing issues such as leaks, noises, low airflow, faulty thermostats, etc. HVAC maintenance usually involves inspecting and cleaning components such as filters, coils, ducts, fans, etc.

HVAC service is typically done on an as-needed basis when you notice a problem with your system. HVAC maintenance is typically done on a regular schedule (such as once or twice a year) to prevent problems from occurring.

How do I keep my AC running in extreme heat?

It’s a nightmare scenario.

The temperature spikes, and your AC stops working.

Don’t let this happen to you. There are two basic strategies to make sure that your AC or heat pump continues to hum along, even when we hit triple digits in Phoenix. 

    1. Schedule a maintenance appointment to address small issues before they become big issues:(623) 581-5298.
    2. Lighten the load on your AC or heat pump, so that it doesn’t have to work as hard to keep your home cool.

Excessive heat causes your AC or heat pump to work harder and longer to keep your home cool. Continuous operation increases wear and tear on the component parts of the system.

It can also create high head pressure in the refrigerant circuit, which can damage the compressor or cause it to shut down completely.

Lighten the Load on Your AC or Heat Pump

Your heat pump or AC can cool your home more easily (and reliably) if you avoid adding extra heat to your home.

The following tips should come as no surprise to anyone who has lived in Phoenix for any length of time, but sometimes a small reminder can make all the difference.

    1. Thermostat: Set your thermostat to the highest temperature that feels reasonably comfortable to you. If you set your thermostat to low, it will run continuously and struggle to keep up with extreme temperatures in Phoenix.
    2. Cover your windows: Sun screens make a big difference. You can also use shades or drapes to block the sunlight.
    3. Fans: Run fans to keep cool, BUT only run fans when you’re in the room. Fans cool people not rooms. Running fans in rooms without people can actually add heat.
    4. Appliances: Avoid heat-producing appliances (such as ovens, stoves, dishwashers, clothes dryers, etc.) during the peak heat of the day.
