High Humidity, Extreme Heat and Leaking Air Conditioning Systems

This entry was posted in Air Conditioning on by .

Though rainfall due to monsoon season has been down this year, prevailing winds and established weather patterns are still transporting low level moisture up from the Gulf of California as they do every summer. Phoenix is known as the hottest city in America, and this year, we’ve had record setting heat to prove it. We’ve also had plenty of humidity which can cause problems for air conditioning systems. Leaking air conditioners, unpleasant musty smells associated with standing water, sweating AC ducts and mildew are all a result of extra moisture in the air. If you’ve noticed leaking or water related issues with your air conditioner, it’s best to deal with them as soon as possible.

Condensation and Removing Humidity from the Air in Your Home

Humidity causes our bodies to feel warmer because our natural ability to dissipate heat through perspiration is inhibited when there is extra moisture in the air. A simple example of this is taking a shower in a bathroom with the windows closed and the exhaust fan off. You will notice yourself perspiring almost as soon as you get out of the shower. Your air conditioner removes unwanted humidity from your home through the normal cooling process. As warm air passes over your cold evaporator coils, condensation occurs and water drips from the coils to the drain pan below. If you notice extra humidity in the air inside your home, you should give us a call.

Here are some of the most common reasons for leaking air conditioners and moisture related problems:

  • Clogged Condensate Drain

    One of the most common reasons for leaking AC units is caused by a clogged condensate drain line. The condensate drain line can get clogged with debris or gunk which builds up over time. If the drain line is clogged, the water will back up and the pan will overflow.

  • Dirty or Clogged Air Filters/Low Refrigerant

    Proper airflow is critical to the normal operation of your air conditioner. When your air filters are clogged with dirt, airflow is reduced. This can lead to a chain reaction which may result in the evaporator coils freezing. If you have ever noticed ice on your AC unit, it is usually due to reduced airflow or low refrigerant. Either way, when the ice melts, you generally will have a problem with leaking. If you notice ice on your air conditioner, turn off your unit and give us a call.

  • Improperly Installed Ducts and Vents

    Ductwork is a mystery to most homeowners because they rarely see them. Tucked away in the rafters or hidden behind walls, it’s hard to know if your ducts were installed correctly. However, if you notice water stains on the plaster in your ceilings or water dripping down the walls near your vents, it’s a good bet your ducts were not insulated properly. Water dripping from attic ducts onto plaster or insulation can cause mildew and mold and pose a serious health concern, not to mention the unpleasant musty odor.

Humidity Can Wreak Havoc on Your Air Conditioner

Leaks, water damage and excess condensation can cause problems that you might be tempted to overlook. However, if you see water leaking it won’t be long before you start smelling the accompanying mildew. Once that smell gets into your AC system, it’s difficult to get out. Give us a call and we’ll be happy to send a skilled, experienced service technician out to inspect your entire HVAC system.

One Part of Your House Is Definitely “Not Cool” – Is A Portable Air Conditioner the Answer?

This entry was posted in Air Conditioning on by .

In a perfect world, your air conditioning unit would quietly do its job and provide cool comfort to every part of your house efficiently and evenly to the prescribed temperature setting on your thermostat. However, many Phoenix area homes experience uneven cooling from one part of the house to another, often throughout different periods of the day. Especially in August and September, when soaring temperatures consistently exceed 105 degrees.

Why Is One Room in My House Cool and Another Uncomfortably Warm?

Many factors go into uneven cooling. The position of your home relative to the sun, amount of shade trees alleviating direct sunlight hitting your house, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof, sun streaming through your windows (especially on the south and west facing side of your home), unbalanced, improperly installed AC vents not delivering the cool air where it’s supposed to go and more. Uneven cooling, particularly in bedrooms, can be an unpleasant daily or nightly annoyance.

Is a Portable Air Conditioner the Solution to Uneven Cooling?

The reason we receive so many uneven cooling complaints in August and September is simple – it’s crunch time. This is the hottest part of summer. The shortcomings of your air conditioning system may have gone unnoticed when temperatures hovered in the low 90s. However, weeks of 105 to 110 degrees will test even the best AC systems. The first and most obvious solution is to schedule a service call, so we can inspect your system and see if there’s a problem such as low refrigerant, a malfunctioning fan or a disconnected vent.

If your AC system checks out, and you are still experiencing warm rooms, a portable AC unit, used during the hottest part of the year, may be the answer. Here are few points to keep in mind when considering a portable AC unit.

  • Portable Air Conditioners

    Portable air conditioners are generally less than three feet tall, are equipped with casters for easy rolling from room to room and can be plugged into any electrical wall outlet. They are most effective cooling one room and will come with a BTU rating that will guide you as to the size of the area to be cooled.

  • What Are the Advantages to Using a Portable?

    Some homes are designed in such a way that certain rooms, say the Arizona room, an office, bedroom or master suite facing south and west (getting maximum sun) will always feel hotter than the rest of the house. A portable AC unit can help cool down the area of your house that is not being sufficiently cooled by the main unit. Many Phoenix residents will crank up the AC overall to deal with hotter parts of the house, however, this means you are paying extra for electricity.

  • What About Humidity in the Air?

    In Phoenix, humidity is high during monsoon season. Portable air conditioners generally have a plastic receptacle located inside the unit to collect moisture. The options are to manually empty the reservoir when it is full or install a drain.

The Long, Hot Arizona Summer Is More Than Half-Way Through

In the seasonal rhythms of Arizona, it’s a sign that summer is more than half-way through when the kids go back to school. Hopefully, your AC system is working like a champ and will faithfully see you through August, September and the rest of the year without any problems. If you do require service, please give us a call and we’ll be happy to send a friendly service tech to restore your air conditioner to top form!

A World Without Air Conditioning

This entry was posted in Air Conditioning on by .

Surviving summer in the Arizona desert without air conditioning is a scary thought. However, there are occasions when the power goes out for hours at a time or your air conditioning unit malfunctions in the middle of the night, and you find yourself temporarily living in a world without air conditioning. One of the most distressing situations for a homeowner is returning from a weekend trip or vacation only to find the air conditioner has not been working, and the house has been roasting for days. Consider yourself lucky if you’ve never had this stifling experience.

No Air Conditioning Can Go from Unpleasant to Unhealthy

Because we all take air conditioning for granted, it’s very likely you may not have a plan in place for when your AC fails. However, it’s important to note, during a heatwave, when the temperatures climb above 100 degrees (especially above 110 degrees), lack of air conditioning can become a genuine health emergency. We always stress safety first, so please set aside some time to consider what steps you’d take in a dire situation. If you have an infant or small child, an elderly parent or someone with a respiratory condition such as asthma or COPD, extreme indoor temperatures can be devastating. Dehydration and heatstroke can sneak up and often occurs at a faster rate than most people imagine.

Steps to Take When Your Air Conditioner Stops Working

If there’s a power outage you may want to report it to the power company. Obviously, if your AC unit is broken, you’ll want to give us a call. We’re available 24/7. Here are steps you can take to minimize the unpleasant, rising heatwave inside your home:

  • Close All the Blinds and Shades

    Up to 30 percent of the heat inside your home comes from the sun shining through the lovely large windows facing east, south and west. Close all the doors and blinds as soon as possible.

  • Ceiling Fans

    Obviously, you’re going to want to crank up your ceiling fans. Did you know, for maximum cooling efficiency, your ceiling fans need to rotate counterclockwise? It might be wise to check all your ceiling fans, particularly the older ones and the uneven fans that wobble.

  • Get Out the Portable Fans

    Creating air flow across your main living area will provide a cooler space for your family. Having multiple portable fans in your garage will make it easier to deal with the heat while your AC is being fixed or when the power is out.

  • Close Off the Sun Room, Arizona Room or Extra Rooms

    Rooms facing south and west will get the hottest so it’s best to close them off and minimize the heat coming from that part of your home.

  • Stay Out of the Kitchen and Don’t Do Laundry

    Turning on the stove to cook is a bad idea. Take out might be the best solution. Doing laundry will add to the humidity in your home and the dryer is going to heat up your laundry room.

  • Consider Cooling Off with a Cold Shower

    Short, cold showers and light clothing will allow your skin to breathe and give you some relief from the heat. Ice packs and cold compresses might actually be fun for the kids. Eliminate exercise or yard work (for the day) and try to minimize physical activity.

In A World Without Air Conditioning – You Need an AC Service Company You Can Count On

We always say, regular service calls are the best defense against unwanted AC breakdowns. However, sometimes emergencies are unavoidable. When that happens, you’ll want to call the best, most reliable HVAC company in the valley. When your AC is down, you can count on us to get it working as fast as possible. Call us today.

Your Air Conditioner’s Compressor – How to Prevent a Critical Summer Service Outage

This entry was posted in Air Conditioning on by .

The summer heat in Phoenix can be merciless. Can you think of a home appliance more useful or more complex than your air conditioning system? Air conditioners are comprised of multiple components located both inside and outside your home. One of the most important components, often referred to as the “heart” of your AC system, is the compressor, which is found on the side of your house or up on the roof. Aptly named because it compresses refrigerant and pumps the gas under pressure as it cycles endlessly throughout your entire AC system. The refrigerant picks up heat from inside your home and magically transfers that heat outdoors, leaving you cool, calm and collected indoors.

COM-PRESSING PROBLEMS

Compressors are manufactured to strict standards and built strong to last a long time. Many of the problems that occur are preventable or fixable – if caught in time. Depending on the age of your compressor and the service history, you may have experienced some of these compressor issue early warning signs. It’s important to remember, as August and September approach, extreme heat will put your compressor and your entire AC system to the test. Here are some of the problems which can take your compressor down:

  • Low Refrigerant

    Many people think adding refrigerant once or twice a year is no big deal. However, AC refrigerant is encased in a closed system with pressurized lines, which requires an exact amount of gas to run properly. Too much or too little can cause issues with your compressor. Only trained service technicians with proper equipment can ascertain whether you have the correct amount of refrigerant in your system.

  • Clogged Coils

    The good news is, compressor coils are a brilliant way to facilitate the transfer of heat from the inside of your house to the outside air. The bad news is, coils are an absolute magnet for dirt and grime. If your coils get clogged with dirt, it makes your compressor work harder to lower the temperature in your home. If left neglected, clogged coils can cause severe damage to your compressor. Regular service includes cleaning your coils and prevents the layer of grime that inhibits the cooling process.

  • Leaks and Pinholes in the Coils

    One of the subtle ways your compressor loses refrigerant is through tiny pinholes barely noticeable to the naked eye. Corrosion can occur in the multiple bends and turns of the coils and cause leaks. Depending on the age of your air conditioner, rust may be creating tiny leaks allowing the refrigerant to escape.

  • Electrical Issues and How Wear and Tear Affects Your Compressor

    Electrical issues cause more than 80 percent of all air conditioner repairs. It’s no surprise that proper wiring, clean power and accurate voltage are all crucial to the successful operation of your compressor. One compressor killer we’ve seen over the years is wiring problems due to extreme heat, the fact that compressors are located outside and plain old wear and tear. As wires age, they get old and brittle and can be the root cause of electrical issues. Power surges, which happen often during the monsoon season, can cause electrical issues with your compressor.

Is It Better to Repair or Replace a Compressor?

Replacing an AC compressor is one of the most expensive repairs a homeowner can undertake. Whenever possible, we prefer to repair. We only recommend replacement when it’s truly unavoidable. We recommend regular service checks in order to catch small problems before they become big ones. If you’ve been noticing performance issues with your air conditioner, why not give us a call and we’ll perform a mid-summer checkup.

Talking Frugal When It Comes to Your Air Conditioning

This entry was posted in Air Conditioning on by .

Staying cool in the hottest city in the United States doesn’t come cheap. In fact, utility costs often skyrocket when temperatures soar above 100 degrees. Of course, savings starts with having an energy-efficient air conditioner. But what if you have an older model that still performs well but isn’t as efficient as it should be. Here are a few tips to help you save on AC until it’s time for a replacement.

Turn on the Fans

Almost every Phoenix-area home has ceiling fans. Turn them on! While they don’t actually lower the temperature in your home, they make you feel more comfortable. For maximum efficacy, make sure they’re turning in a counter-clockwise direction. You want that air to blow down on you!

Create Shade

Whether you have blinds, curtains, shades or some other window covering, they should be closed during the peak sunny hours of the day. Follow the sun around the house and open and close as needed to keep the sun’s rays from heating up your home. This one action can have a profound impact on your ability to keep your home cool.

Turn Off Heat-Generating Appliances

Run your dishwasher at night and consider cooking al fresco when it’s hot outside. And by all means, take advantage of the power of the sun to dry your clothes by hanging them outside instead of using that heat-producing dryer.

Invest in a Programmable Thermostat

By gaining control of the temperature in your home, you’ll reduce wasted energy and lower your monthly costs. A new thermostat is an inexpensive device that offers tremendous savings. If you’re not home during the day, turn the AC up to 85 while you’re gone. There’s big savings to be gained!

Change Those Filters

Go buy a stack of air filters for your air conditioner. Change the filter once a month to keep your air flow efficient.

And when you’re ready for that new energy-efficient air conditioner, Cool Blew has you covered with free estimates, the latest information on rebates and discounts and plenty of helpful advice to make sure you get the best possible system for your home.

What Is an Urban Heat Island and How Does It Affect You and Your Air Conditioner?

This entry was posted in Air Conditioning on by .

Phoenix residents know the drill during a heatwave. When the temperature climbs above 105, you do what you can to avoid being outside during the hottest part of the day. Occasionally, you may find yourself walking down a city street or making your way across a scorching, treeless parking lot. It’s then you realize what the term, “urban heat island” means. In the highly developed, greater Phoenix area, asphalt, concrete, metal and hardscape stone and gravel combine to absorb and then release the heat of the sun, often adding up to ten degrees of temperature during any given day. Urban heat island effect also keeps the entire city temperature warmer in the night. When you have the equivalent of three months of 100+ temperatures, that adds up to a lot of extra stress on your air conditioner – and on you!

Extreme Temperatures in Phoenix – The Heat Is Coming

So far this year, temperatures have been relatively moderate. With July, August and September just ahead, triple digit heat will be coming soon. Most desert dwellers are well aware of normal heatwave precautions. Drink plenty of water. Always keep extra water bottles in your car. Do your workouts or dog walking early in the morning. Protect yourself from the sun. Don’t forget sunglasses, hats and baseball caps. Keep sun block handy (especially for the kids, who don’t always want it.) Stay indoors during the afternoons and if you suffer from asthma or a respiratory condition, try not to exert yourself.

Here are a few precautions for your air conditioner:

  • Check Your Air Filters

    Your air filters form the first line of defense in your home against dust, pet dander, particulates and VOC’s (volatile organic compounds). Did you know that indoor air pollution can be worse than outside air? If you haven’t checked your air filters in a while, it’s a good idea to replace them before the big dust storms of monsoon season hit.

  • Clear the Area Around Your Air Conditioner

    If you haven’t done so already, take time to inspect the area around your air conditioner to make sure it’s free from obstruction and not overgrown with grass, bushes or tree branches. Free flowing air around your air conditioner makes the transfer of heat away from your home easier.

  • Schedule an Early Summer HVAC Checkup

    We recommend two service calls per year. One in spring to prepare for summer and another in fall. Our friendly service technicians will perform a full system inspection and make sure your air conditioner is ready for the hottest days of summer, which are just ahead. Remember, it is important to have your refrigerant checked (at the very least) once per year, as well as all the other critical parts of your AC system.

Your Home Will Be an Oasis of Cool Amid the Phoenix Urban Heat Island

When the heatwaves hit and the temperature climbs well above 100 degrees, our phone rings off the wall. Don’t wait until your air conditioner breaks down to schedule service. Be proactive and give yourself and your family the gift of cool AC all summer long. Call us today.

Air Conditioning for Your New House or an Addition to Your Home

This entry was posted in Air Conditioning on by .

Population in the Southwest has grown tremendously over the last four decades. The Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale metropolitan area now has over 4.7 million people. In fact, just last year 25,000 new residents moved into Phoenix, bringing the total population to 1.7 million, making Phoenix the fifth largest city in the United States. New home construction is everywhere. Building and development is a way of life. If you’re in the exciting process of building a new home or if you are adding a significant addition to your existing home, there’s one crucial element of design that doesn’t always receive the attention it deserves. In Arizona, air conditioning is crucial to the enjoyment of a living space. However, it’s not always a top priority during the design and planning phase, especially for home additions.

Air Conditioning Is Crucial

When it comes to construction, architects and builders know, it’s visuals and design that sells a project. Less visible details, such as air conditioner location, duct work and vent placement can be seen as secondary. However, the extreme desert heat means your air conditioner is not only crucial for comfortable living, it’s also something you pay dearly for in terms of monthly utility bills. Poor planning and design can lead to sub-standard or inefficient cooling which may mean paying more to cool your home or addition. Here are a few HVAC points to consider in planning your new home or addition:

  • Get the HVAC Experts (That’s Us) Involved Early in the Design Process

    Of course we believe air conditioning should be a top priority for your home – it’s what we do! However, day in and day out we find ourselves repairing or re-engineering mistakes made by builders who are not qualified to design HVAC systems. That is especially true for room or wing addition projects. Get us involved early in the design process, before you get to final plans.

  • Options for Room Additions

    There are generally three options for master suites or room additions. They include utilizing and extending your current system, upgrading to a new, larger air conditioner or adding an independent system. A load calculation will need to be performed and your current system should be thoroughly assessed.

  • Schedule an HVAC Inspection and Consultation

    Whether you’re involved in building a new house or putting an addition on your existing home, scheduling an HVAC expert to meet with you will give you peace of mind going forward in your project. We deal with the results of poor HVAC planning every day. When it comes to properly cooling your home, knowledge and experience make a huge difference.

We’ll Help You Achieve the Best HVAC Solutions for Your New Home or Addition

Building a new home or overseeing an addition is a huge undertaking. For the comfort of your family, make sure air conditioning is a priority right from the start – not an afterthought. Our experienced professionals will provide you with the information you need and help you every step of the way. Why not call us today?

Will Your Air Conditioner Last Through the Summer of 2019 – 3 Key Questions to Ask

This entry was posted in Air Conditioning on by .

Typical Phoenix temperatures in early June hover in the nineties. As July approaches and triple digit heat descends on the Valley, you have to ask yourself one important question – is your air conditioner going to make it through the hottest months of the year? In 2018, there were over 128 days with temperatures above 100 degrees. This July, August and September will push your air conditioner to its very limits. If you had AC issues last summer or if you’re air conditioner is making funny noises, not cooling properly or just plain making you nervous, here are three questions to ask in considering if now is the right time to replace rather than repair. It’s important to remember, replacing your air conditioner during the hottest part of the summer is an option you want to avoid if at all possible.

  • How Old Is Your Current Air Conditioner?

    Manufactured to last a long time, in most parts of the U.S., air conditioners can last 10 to 15 years. However, in Phoenix, the hottest city in America, air conditioners have a shorter life span and generally provide reliable service up to 8 years. Not unlike an automobile with high mileage, desert air conditioners log heavy usage year in and year out. Dust storms and monsoons can take their toll and rooftop air conditioning units operate in intense sunlight with punishing UV rays and temperatures exceeding 140 degrees. To determine the age of your air conditioner, check your original AC invoice or warranty papers to determine if you have them. If you purchased your home more recently and have no idea how old your AC unit is, our service techs can usually figure it out based on the general condition of the air conditioner and reviewing the manufacturer’s model number and information.

  • How Much Have You Spent on Repairs in the Last Two Years?

    As air conditioners get older, more and more repairs are required to keep the unit running in top form. Major repairs, such as replacing the condenser, can be very expensive. If your AC unit is over eight years old and you’ve started to notice major repairs over the last two years, it may be time to replace. One typical guideline is if repairs are going to exceed one third of the cost of a new unit within a two-year period and your air conditioner is over 8 years old, you are probably better off replacing rather than continuously repairing your unit.

  • How Much Is Peace of Mind Worth?

    We understand that replacing an air conditioning unit represents a significant expenditure for homeowners. We don’t take this decision lightly. We pride ourselves on providing excellent service which ensures air conditioning units will last as long as they possibly can. However, when an air conditioner is approaching the end of its useful life, we generally advise, getting the new unit installed before the very hottest part of summer. We replace air conditioners all throughout the year and we are happy to do so. It’s simply more comfortable for homeowners to have trouble free AC without interruption through the months of July, August and September. Over the years, we’ve had many situations where customers tried to squeeze another year of service out of their AC unit and it unfortunately died at the very worst time imaginable.

  • Is It Time to Replace Your AC Unit?

    If your air conditioner is faltering, why not schedule a service call to determine what’s best for the hot summer ahead? Our professional and friendly service technicians have years of experience and will provide you with the information you need to decide if your AC unit is all set for the summer of 2019.

Countdown to Monsoon: Preparing Your Phoenix Home for Summer Storms

This entry was posted in Air Conditioning on by .

Throughout the fall, winter and spring, the weather throughout the greater Phoenix area is the envy of the country. Yet, things can become less than desirable during the summer months when temperatures soar, and monsoon conditions take shape. High winds, walls of dust, downpours of rain and plenty of lightning and thunder can be exciting to watch but also damaging to your home. Yet, with a few precautions, you can protect your home from severe weather that can unexpectedly hit from mid-June through late September.

Protect Your Air Conditioner

Your outdoor air conditioning unit is vulnerable to damage during severe summer storms. A simple way to protect this vital and valuable piece of equipment is to trim back all the brush, trees and landscaping around it. The greatest risks during monsoon weather conditions are falling trees and blowing branches and leaves. They can both damage the unit from impact, as well as blow debris that can get lodged inside it.

As well, grass, brush and weeds can flood into the lower components of the system which can restrict airflow, clog coils and hinder the function of the system. Before the monsoon hits, take a few minutes to cut back vegetation and clean up all clippings to keep the area around your unit as clear and clean as possible.

Invest in a Surge Protector

With severe storms come plenty of lightning strikes. If one hits your home, you could experience an electrical surge which can damage your electronics and electrical systems. With a whole house surge protector, you can protect your HVAC system, as well as all the important electrical equipment that you rely on each and every day.

Schedule Air Conditioning Maintenance Today

At Cool Blew, we recommend Phoenix-area residents to have their HVAC system maintained. Before monsoon season is an ideal time to ensure your system is running efficiently and effectively.

With regular maintenance, you’ll be able to better manage summer electrical bills, correct small issues before they become costly repairs and prevent breakdowns before they happen.

Schedule your maintenance today. We’ll send out an experienced technician who can help provide peace of mind to you throughout monsoon season and beyond.

Dust Mites Just Might Be Aggravating Your Allergies and How Your Air Conditioner Can Help

This entry was posted in Air Conditioning on by .

Springtime in Arizona is often referred to as allergy sneezin’ – er, season. If you’ve been suffering from itchy, watery eyes, a runny nose and labored breathing, it could be from the pollen and ragweed found floating in the air this time of year. However, if your symptoms extend beyond spring, remember, not everyone suffers from hay fever. Some individuals are allergic to dust. For all its beauty, the desert is one extremely dusty place to live. If you’ve observed dust storms darkening the sky a mile high and blotting out the sun, you understand there’s some serious dust swirling around the Phoenix metroplex. Unfortunately, some of that dust finds its way into your home.

What Is Dust Made Of?

Have you ever been vacuuming and noticed a shaft of golden sunlight shining through your window to reveal an alarming amount of dust particles suspended in the air in your home? Though it largely goes unnoticed, left unchecked, dust in your home will build up quickly. Dust is comprised of fine dirt, tiny grains of sand, flaked skin cells, pet dander, small hairs, bits of threads, minute pieces of cotton fabric, pollution from automobile exhaust and even a little cosmic dust which falls to earth from the atmosphere. Microscopic dust mites live on human skin, animal dander and fungal spores. We’ve had astonished customers ask us, “You mean to tell me all this is inside my home?” The answer is yes. Incredibly, often the air quality inside your home is worse than the air outside. Here are steps you can take to minimize dust in your home, reduce your allergic reactions and improve your indoor air quality:

  • Change Your Air Filters Regularly – With the doors and windows closed, your home becomes, more or less, a closed system. Of course, dust and air pollution will get in when you open the doors. However, for most of the summer, your doors and windows remain closed all summer long to keep out the severe heat. Your greatest safeguard against dust is the air filter in your air conditioning system. As air from your home is recirculated through your AC system, the air filter helps remove all the little nasty little particulates listed above. If your air filters become clogged with dust and dirt, their effectiveness is greatly reduced, and more dust will circulate through your home.
  • Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned – Dust and dirt can accumulate in your air ducts. Many homeowners have no idea of the condition of their air ducts because they’ve never seen inside them. In many Phoenix homes, the ducts have never been cleaned. A duct inspection will also reveal if there’s any water collecting inside your ducts, which can cause mold and a faint, foul odor.
  • Consider an Added Air Filtration System Utilizing UV Lights – Ultra-violet lights add extra protection in that they eradicate biological contaminants from the dust in your air. If you or a family member is suffering from respiratory distress, this might be an option to explore. Our service technicians can review your present system and explain how UV light technology works.

Monsoon Season and Haboobs (Dust Storms) Will Be Coming Soon

Summer will be here before you know it. That means triple digit temperatures and dust storms accompanying monsoons. Now is the perfect time to have your air conditioning system checked and serviced, before the extreme weather hits. Give us a call, and we’ll be happy to schedule a service call to get you ready for the summer.
