Arizona Air Conditioning Tips- Avoid Hazards of Unlicensed HVAC Contractors

Written by Rm Harrington. Posted in Buying Tips, Cooling Tips, Mesa Air Conditioning

AC and Trane Heat Pump Installation In AZUnlicensed HVAC Contractors Produce Messy Arizona Air Conditioning Consequences

Hiring an unlicensed HVAC contractor may seem a great method for reducing the costs of Mesa AC services or Mesa AC installation. But seeking services and skills from a bonded, insured and licensed Arizona AC Company provides better long-term solutions to your home heating and cooling requirements.

In this article, the techs from American Cooling and Heating provide Arizona residents a few tips on how to avoid the messy results of unlicensed HVAC contractors.

Short-Term HVAC Savings Often Produce Long-Term Additional HVAC Expenses

Solutions to simple HVAC problems are often more complex than may be imagined. Short-term AC installation and AC service cost savings may actually result in some very messy long-term Arizona air conditioning consequences. Hiring HVAC service work from unqualified contractors may produce some of the following complications:

  • Substandard workmanship ensuing inferior equipment functionality
  • Partial or even purposefully fraudulent system error reports
  • Unpredictable A/C services, including second-rate Mesa A/C installation
  • Unanticipated increase in final expenses
  • Lousy long-term HVAC system reliability
  • AND more.

TIP! Before agreeing for home A/C services ask the contractor for current evidence of insurance. Although any HVAC provider can make a mistake, the cost for damages caused by uninsured vendors may fall directly against your bank balance.

Even though dealing via an untrained back door heating and cooling tech may appear to save on initial expenses, an uninsured financial nightmare may be just around the corner. Unlicensed HVAC contractors are working outside the law. This means they may ignore industry-standard HVAC service and installation regulations.

Charlie McCrudden, ACCA senior vice president of government relations, says that such hacks “… take advantage of lax enforcement of permitting rules, licensing requirements, and the Clean Air Act.” Mr. McCrudden also states that government agencies are currently ill equipped for tracking or controlling unlicensed AC activities. Worse: McCrudden also makes clear that too many unlicensed people are “… are posing as professional HVAC technicians.”

TIP! Before choosing a Mesa AC expert, seek multiple bids. And remember to be especially cautious of super-low bidders.

Reputable Mesa Air Conditioning Companies Always Better Than Unlicensed HVAC Contractors

No matter the industry, reputation is paramount to the word-of-mouth advertising. Likewise, positive word-of-mouth publicity establishes the cornerstone of reliance. Unlicensed HVAC contractors damage the reputation of the HVAC industry. You deserve better.

In paraphrase from words by the Arizona Yavapai County Contractors Association, homeowners are free to choose who they will hire: licensed or unlicensed. However, buyers beware. Although YCCA Executive Director, Sandy Griffis, says that contractor licensing does not assure technical skill, proficiency or even a measure of competence, he concludes with these simple words, “… hiring an unlicensed contractor is certainly a hazard.”

Here are four tips on hiring Mesa air conditioning techs:

  1. Unlicensed HVAC contractors may offer cheap pricing, but long-term legal and financial complications may follow
  2. Hiring a licensed Arizona HVAC service contractor offer superior protection over any post-installation/service legal resolutions
  3. As a whole, licensed Mesa A/C contractors offer competent service, comprehensive financially resources, and fully trained and vetted techs
  4. By practicing licensing and a well-crafted regulatory system, the law of the land promotes individual safety and reliable construction practices.

The low-ball pricing associated with unlicensed AC contractors greatly harm legitimate Arizona air conditioning service and installation companies. Playing by the rules only to lose business typically results in a higher cost margin for both you and the licensed HVAC contractor. According to the Arizona Registrar of Contractors, complaints filed against unlicensed AC contractors is on the rise, and the price of scam HVAC providers affects you as well as legitimate contractors.

TIP: Arizona residents can report unlicensed HVAC contractors via forms on the website of the Arizona Registrar of HVAC Contractors.

Hazards of Hiring Unlicensed Arizona HVAC Contractors

According to YCCA reports, knowing your existing home improvement rights can help you prevent construction problems. Take personal responsibility for the project. Work only with reputable Mesa air conditioning contractors. Do not permit yourself to be victimized by unscrupulous, unlicensed HVAC contractors.

TIP! When installing new home air conditioning equipment, check the condition of existing HVAC ductwork. When sized incorrectly or in need of repair, ductwork can cause poor performance in even the best energy-efficient air conditioning equipment.

Basically, take care to protect your home. Avoid the hazards of unlicensed craftsmen. Properly licensed Arizona HVAC contractors follow sound business practices, including:

  • Staying up-to-date on operating taxes
  • Maintaining reliable yearly operating insurance
  • Ensuring employee reliability
  • Maintaining sufficient local bonded practices
  • AND More.

To gain and hold a current Arizona state HVAC license, HVAC contractors must be able to prove efficient AC capabilities and experience. Local HVAC testing aims to eliminate local HVAC service options that can result in shoddy work ethics. Although licensing may not produce the definitive protection against scam HVAC service providers, it does make it easier for Arizona homeowners to locate a principled and reliable HVAC contractor.

The cooling and heating industry continues to evolve. Global reach includes expansion into better indoor air quality management. American Cooling and Heating is here to ensure that Arizona air conditioning buyers receive professional service from a bonded, insured and licensed Mesa HVAC contractor. Call Now.

 

Resolving 4 Air Conditioning Noise Problems – Why AC Systems Make Noise?

Written by Rm Harrington. Posted in AC Repair, HVAC Maintenance

Air conditioning noise and Leaky Heat Pumps - Old CarrierThe Nature of Air Conditioning Noise

All air conditioning systems produce some measure of noise. Expect it. Not as a major chatter, but rather as the general hum of any fan-driven air delivery system. But there is much distinction between AC systems that clang, jangle and rattle versus a system that outputs a defined and acceptable air conditioning operational hum.

In this article, the techs at American Cooling and Heating detail four fixes for common excessive air conditioning noise problems.

Air Conditioning Noise – Defining Volume

Before addressing why AC systems make noise, you need first to understand the applied definition of sound volume. All HVAC system manufacturers post the sound db of the units. In fact, most central and split A/C systems are designed to maintain a less than 35-db sound level. But what does that mean to you? How do you define “db?”

Consider the following relationships:

  1. A) 20-db… Low and soft like the ticking of a small watch
  2. B) 40-db… Mild and distant like echoes along a park walkway
  3. C) 60-db… Clearly audible but reasonably subdued like friends in typical conversation
  4. D) 80-db… Clanging for attention like commercials on the TV
  5. E) 100-db… Alarming, demanding and extremely distracting like the crack-crack of nearby rifle fire.

In essence, the expected sounds that come from your home air conditioning system should seem mild and distant like echoes along a park walkway. It’s a sound that you hear but easily tune out.

4 Reasons AC Systems Make Noise

When the noise level from your home air conditioning unit seems odd, interruptive to thought or conversation, or simply out of place for current expectations, you should take immediate action. Never ignore the audible signs of possible HVAC system complications. Delayed AC repairs typically ensure an increase cost for said repair.

Safety Tip: Never attempt repairs on any A/C unit without first disconnecting power to the system.

If you are not comfortable examining your own system, now is the time to contact the nearest Phoenix-regional office of ACH.

1) Air Conditioning Noise – Chattering Fans

Reliable system cooling, efficient air distribution, and effective system operation demands that the fans associated with your Phoenix home A/C unit operate without hindrance. Some HVAC fan repairs require the talents of skilled HVAC techs. Other repairs may be as minor. For evaporator system fans that are producing excessive humming or perhaps a bit of rattling, consider the following options:

  • Remove any debris that may be touching the fan blades
  • Tighten the screw at the hub of the blades
  • Gently correct any blades that appear bent.

2) Air Conditioning Noise – Clogged Coil Fins

Growing weeds, fallen leaves and dirt can easily cause clogs in condenser coils. Bend coil fins also cause excessive A/C system noise. Simple fixes for clogged condenser foil fins include:

  • Removing any nearby clutter
  • Pulling nearby weeds by the root
  • Gently washing the coils with pressurized water
  • Purchase a fin comb and then cautiously correct any bent fins.

Note: Incorrect combing can result in additional damage.

3) Air Conditioning Noise – Loose Screws

Everything machine that vibrates runs the risk of producing loose screws. Air conditioning and heat pump systems are not immune to the problem. System vibrations can affect screws associated with fans, mounting panels and even electrical components. The fix: Use reset the screws.

4) Air Conditioning Noise – Lubrication

Modern AC and refrigeration equipment use sealed compressors. This means that cooling of the compressor relies on cold refrigerant returning from the indoor coil. When a system leak causes a drop in coolant level, major system damage can easily follow. Sounds to listen for include:

  • Low rumblings
  • High pitched squeals, even if not loud
  • Continuous ticking
  • And more.

Repairing AC lubrication problems exceed DIY efforts. Too little coolant remains a problem. Too much coolant generates another type of problem. Furthermore: Conscientious HVAC service providers find and fix leaks prior to adding more refrigerant.

Why Arizona AC Systems Make Noise – Local Help In Times of Need

Some of the above steps are simple. But resolving major Phoenix air conditioning noises often demands the services of a major Phoenix A/C service provider. If the problem persists, contact American Cooling and Heating Today.

 

 

Digital Thermostat – Troubleshooting Common Digital Thermostat Problems

Written by Rm Harrington. Posted in HVAC Maintenance, Repair or Replace, Thermostats and Controllers

Nexia Home AutomationDigital Thermostat — Solve My Digital Thermostat Issues

Although an installed digital thermostat typically functions trouble-free, perhaps you can benefit by the following simple testing processes. After all, a faulty thermostat affects the heating and cooling comfort level throughout your entire home.

 

In this article, the techs at Arizona-based American Cooling and Heating works to help you better understand how to resolve problems with your Mesa home HVAC command system – the digital thermostat solution.

5 Steps to Basic Digital Thermostat Troubleshooting

Preliminary Testing…

Before leaping into the basic steps in digital thermostat troubleshooting, confirm that your thermostat is turned on, set to heat or cool depending on your desired comfort level, and that the fan system is also on. It also helps to reset the system. Do this by turning the thermostat off, pressing the reset option, and then turning the thermostat back on. If you lack understanding on how to turn a thermostat on and off, and you also lack access to a user manual, best option – Contact your local ACH comfort system specialist.

1) Thermostat Sensor

Testing for a faulty thermostat sensor merely requires that you have some alternative method for measuring room temperature. For the professional Arizona HVAC tech, the measurement is instant and accurate. After all: Your Mesa A/C professional does utilize an array of highly sensitive, extremely accurate and somewhat costly HVAC tool kit. However, for a homeowner not pushed for immediate answers, a simple alcohol or mercury thermometer is sufficient for this test. In the room to be tested, just mount one of these inexpensive temperature measurement devices and then wait an hour or so to take a reading. Any discrepancy between the room temperature and the readout shown on your digital thermostat implies that your system has a faulty thermostat sensor.

Repairing a Faulty Thermostat Sensor

Repair or replace is rather senseless, and not at all cost effective. When dealing with a faulty thermostat sensor, best solution is that you replace the entire unit. However, before leaping directly to the stage that involves thermostat replacement, continue reading this report.

2) Calibrate The Thermostat According To Room Temp

Perhaps your digital thermostat is merely in need of calibration. Different makes and models of thermostats function according to different specs. For accurate unit calibration, we recommend calling in your local Arizona HVAC tech. However, it is likely that your thermostat instruction manual includes directions concerning calibration of the unit. If you lack access to a manual, some digital thermostats include calibrations instructions on the inside of the unit cover.

3) Checking Thermostat Wiring Connections

Ok. So the sensors are not faulty, and calibration is completed. Next step involves checking thermostat wiring for the likes of:

  • Corroded connections
  • Broken wiring
  • AND Direct shorts.

Start by disabling incoming thermostat power sources. Be careful. Any contact with life electrical wiring can result in serious personal injury. Once you have confirmed that incoming thermostat power is disabled, remove the unit from the wall so that you can visibly examine the wiring connections. Look for corrosion, direct breaks in connection, and loose connections. If wire nuts are not installed, correct that issue before reinstalling the unit.

Important Safety and System Warning…

Skilled HVAC techs understand the thermostat wiring label system. They know how to cross wires for testing of various unit components. Errors can lead to greater system problems. If you do not have proper equipment for working with electrical wiring and wired systems, or if you lack any previous experience, call your local Arizona ACH tech. We remove the worry, the hassle, and the risk from the air conditioning repair process.

4) Internet-Specific Trane Digital Thermostat Controls

With an installed Trane digital thermostat system, homeowners can remote-access their home HVAC control center by use of most Internet-connected devices. Some problems can be correct by better understanding the Internet-specific Trane digital thermostat control system. Test using the following guidelines:

  • Ensure active wireless connection – This means check your modem, wireless router, and incoming home Internet connection. For help with this part of the process, contact your local Internet service provider. However, if your home computer, smart phones and other Internet-enabled devices are functioning correctly, most likely your digital thermostat is also making a solid Internet connection.
  • Try resetting the Trane digital thermostat via the wireless connection steps as outlined in the system manual.
  • For Internet problems, contact your Mesa Internet service provider.
  • For connection errors that affect your thermostat but not to your other wireless devices, contact your local American Cooling and Heating HVAC specialist.

5) Replace Your Digital Thermostat

Perhaps you went through all of the above listed thermostat tests alone and without advanced technical support. If you are satisfied that the installed thermostat is faulty, consider a DIY replacement. Time-wise, installation of a new digital thermostat only takes a few minutes. However, remember to replace using like equipment in size and shape matching that of the old unit. This helps reduce installation problems.

For the easiest, most efficient and certain solution to a faulty digital thermostat, contact the ACH 24-hour HVAC response team. We will get your home heating and cooling system up and running in record time.

Zoned Air Conditioning – Is It A Right Phoenix AC Solution?

Written by Rm Harrington. Posted in Air Conditioning Technology, Arizona Air Conditioning Installation, Buying Tips

AZ Nexia Smart HomeZoned Air Conditioning Systems – Modern Style

Remember the zoned air conditioning system used by your parents? Dad’s simple cost-savings plan involved closing off registers in specific rooms of the house. Sadly to say: Dad’s plan proved totally ineffective. And in many cases, such haphazard AC zoning practices actually shortened the life of the HVAC air handler unit.

Yet the ways of old still linger: The average homeowner continues to use closed registers as a primary means of zoned AC comfort.

In this article, the home comfort techs at American Cooling and Heating reveal the pros and cons of an installed Arizona home zoning AC system.

Multi-Zone Heating and Cooling: Sharing Your Phoenix Home

Efficient and effective home comfort requires installation of a balance AC airflow system. If you live alone, zoning your home air conditioning may seem senseless. But for people with a family, daily thermostat wars can become a major problem. Some folks like a very cold home environment. Other folks prefer things a bit warmer. With standard installed Phoenix HVAC systems, family compromise is the only solution.

Multi-zone home cooling and heating offers a different type of air conditioning solution. These systems are designed to make home zoning AC quick, efficient and effective. However, multi-zone home air conditioning systems come with both advantages and disadvantages – Installation prices coming in as one of the major points of consideration.

Zoned Air Conditioning – A Simple Definition

Installed multi-zone home heating and cooling enables individual temperature control of specific divisions within your home. Certified HVAC techs examine your home, calculate best processes, and then essentially split your house into several distinctively controlled heating and cooling AC zones. In some homes, the process may be managed by installation of multiple furnaces, heat pumps or air conditioning systems. In other homes, the process may be managed by installation of electronic baffles geared to open and close on key to air flow from a central air handler. Either method enables the HVAC system to provide separate and independent temperature adjustments to each zone within the home.

Zoned AC – Pros

Benefits of a effective Phoenix home AC zoning include:

Home Zoning AC Comfort – Unlike central heating and cooling systems, multi-zone home air conditioning enables family members with personal control of temperatures zone by zone. Depending on the divisions, everyone sets sleeping temperatures to their favored positions. Likewise, kitchens can be kept cooler than living rooms. Basically, a zoned air conditioning system lets your family enjoy home comfort that suits individual heating and cooling preferences.

Trane-comfortlink-ii-thermostats-and-controllersHome Zoning AC Control – Although effective and efficient home zoning air conditioning links back to comfort, the systems offer more than mere temperature-orientated physical comfort. Modern HVAC technology enables remote and programmed control over thermostats located throughout the home. Top zoned AC systems also include fan controls, humidity management, and various energy saving options. For example: the Trane ComfortLink II Thermostat System helps homeowners reduce energy expenses – even if you are not zoning. A properly sized and correctly installed home zoning HVAC system can save your family hundreds of dollars per year in energy expenses.

Home Zoning AC Noise Management – Although modern heating and cooling equipment produces much less noise emission than the early years counterparts, integrated variable-speed fan systems provide an even greater form of noise management. Likewise with two-stage air conditioning systems: Home zoning permits maximum system-performance system-efficiency while providing quieter system operations.

Phoenix Zoned Air Conditioning Systems – The Bad News

As with all things complex, installed multi-zoning is not necessarily suitable for every home situation. AC zoning introduces two basic complications:

  1. Higher costs for parts and installation
  2. More complexity in configuration.

Home Zoning AC Systems – Increased Costs For Installation

Multi-zone heating and cooling systems cost more than standard AC systems. A correct and energy-efficient HVAC zoning system requires more equipment and a more complex duct system. Even if you convert your existing central unit, you will pay a higher cost for the changeover.

Home Zoning AC Systems – Complexity

More equipment means greater chances for future component failure. This also means that servicing and troubleshooting expenses run higher. Before switching over to a multi-zoned heating and cooling system, contact ACH for a full home evaluation. Our techs can provide you with a best-purpose Phoenix heating and cooling solution for your home.

Phoenix Air Conditioning Preservation During Severe Weather

Written by Rm Harrington. Posted in Arizona Air Conditioning Upgrade Sale, Cooling Tips, Maintenance

Phoenix Air Conditioning PerservationPhoenix Air Conditioning When Summer Takes A Break

Phoenix air conditioning and heat pumps bring home cooling during the summer and home heating during the winter. Yet the excessively warm nature of Arizona temperatures may cause a bit of lapse in winter AC maintenance planning. After all, summer reports from azcentral typically deal with record-breaking highs. For example: On Sunday June 19, 2016 temperatures in Flagstaff, Phoenix, Tucson and Yuma set various heat records. It was a day when Phoenix came in at 118 degrees while Yuma temperatures punched a record setting 120 degrees (1).

The need for severe winter weather air conditioning preservation is not foreign to regional Phoenix AZ.

Perhaps you remember the Phoenix freeze warnings during the December of 2015 NM blizzard (2). Local residents were cautioned to wrap pipes, protect weather sensitive plants, and take special care of outdoor pets. As to 2017, January should hang mostly in the mid forties, but may experience several drops to mid thirties. The following list reveals some of the recorded 2015 low:

  • Flagstaff – 16 degrees
  • Prescott – 17 degrees
  • Mesa – 34 degrees
  • AND Phoenix – 39 degrees.

In this article, American Cooling and Heating offers a how to on heat pump and Phoenix air conditioning preservation during severe winter weather.

Phoenix HVAC Preservation Tips – Dealing With Cold, Heat, Rain and Wind

Poorly maintained air conditioning systems are subject to unnecessary points of failure. Although crafted to withstand even extreme weather changes and conditions, HVAC systems perform better when homeowners follow basic air conditioning preservation practices. The following tips lead to increased longevity in both heat pumps and air conditioners.

1) AC Preservation – Avoid Covering Your System

Someone may consider a cover a sensible component of efficient Phoenix air conditioning preservation. This would be error. HVAC systems are designed to weather rain, snow and wind. Here are three reason covering an outdoor condensing system may actually damage the unit – even on a unit with a temporary disconnect from power:

  • HVAC & Accumulated Moisture… No cover will effectively keep moisture out of external air conditioning components. Evaporation draws water up from the ground. Humidity in the air penetrates any break in the seal of the cover. The splash of raindrops promotes moisture accumulation within the confines of the cover.
  • HVAC & Rodent Control… By nature, heat pumps and air condensing units are designed to deter rodents from finding sufficient cover for nesting. Don’t void this purpose by offering rats a nice, warm, cozy external HVAC system.
  • HVAC & Effective System Airflow… Air conditioning systems function by effective movement of air. A cover can hinder the system to the point of critical breakdown. An even minor obstruction to AC airflow can increase accumulation of mildew and mold.

2) AC Preservation – Powering Down When The Power Goes Down  

Bad weather sometimes causes a local outage of power. Problems during repair of the lines can cause multiple power surges to enter your home. If severe weather causes your household power to go out, you might consider tripping the main HVAC fuses until after the problem is fully resolved.

3) AC Preservation – Batting Down For High Winds

Just as installing a cover can damage the exterior components of your heat pump or air conditioning condensing unit, so can wind blown debris. Be prepared for high winds. Keep yard furniture, toys and brush secured, stored, or effectively distant from your HVAC system.

Dealing With Phoenix Air Conditioning Failure During Severe Weather

Mesa Air Conditioning Service, Signs Your Heat Pump Needs Repair

Written by Rm Harrington. Posted in AC Service, Heat Pumps

AC Repair In AZ, mesa air conditioning serviceMesa Air Conditioning Service War Against Sizzling Mesa Heat Index

Although current Mesa temperatures lean toward mild and comfortable, in Arizona even the winter is open season for Air Conditioning repair services. When coming down from triple-digit summer temperatures, we tend to visualize a well-deserved break for the home cooling system.

Don’t be fooled.

In the just released Bert Sperling Heat Index, the region of Phoenix-Mesa, AZ comes in number one among the top ten sizzling cities in the US (1). To make it brief: Mesa, Phoenix and other nearby areas run an average 100-plus high temperature and a tough 77 degree average nighttime low. Relative humidity at high temperature stands around 20 percent. When compiled into the Sperling research, Phoenix-Mesa, AZ hits a 97.7 top-in-the-nation heat index rating.

In this article Arizona-based American Cooling and Heating provides residents with five signs that indicate a heat pump in need of repair.

Five Signs Your Mesa Home Cooling System Is Hurting

1) AC Failure – Foul Odors

Aside from a dusty scent that often accompanies the first yearly engagement of your heating components, your AC system should function odor free. Pay attention to abnormal scents. Musty smells indicate a possibility of bacteria in the ductwork, or perhaps an open tear that enables the system to suck air from the crawlspace. Keep watch also for hints of frayed, overheated or burned wiring. Foul odors pose safety concerns for you and your family. Do not let this go unchecked.

2) AC Failure – Abnormal Sounds

Trane heat pumps rate among the best in the market, yet even the highest ranked sound-suppressant units produce a certain level of expected noise. However, clanging, grinding, squeaking, and squealing are typically signs of major complications. To ignore such abnormal sounds is to invite a future filled with more costly solutions.

3) AC Failure – Strong Air Flow, Poor Cooling

Various system problems can result in strong airflow yet poor cooling. Low coolant stands as the most typical problem, but identifying and repairing the leak that caused the issue must precede the recharge. On the more costly side, your system may be suffering from a failed compressor. On the simple side, maybe someone accidentally set the thermostat to “fan only” mode.

4) AC Failure – Leakage Near The System

The indoor air handler on your Mesa home heat pump requires a system for drainage of moisture. Without controlled drainage, water will begin to accumulate near the system. Causes for drainage failure include a clogged drain line and/or a frozen control regulator. Also keep watch for signs of leaking refrigerant. In either event, immediate investigation is necessary. From prompt Mesa heat pump servicing, call our air conditioning specialist today.

5) AC Failure – Weak Air Flow

A faulty blower can cause weak airflow throughout your entire home. Problems such as debris inside a vent, a closed register, or damaged ductwork will be regional in nature. Before calling for Mesa AC service, check the obvious. And don’t forget to check and clean the air filter.

Mesa AZ Heating and Cooling Services

Has Your Mesa Home Installed Air Conditioning Exceeded A Useful Lifespan

Installed Air conditioning MesaSurvey Reveals Performance-Deficiency As Primary Cause For Installed Air Conditioning Residential Replacement

In a recent survey of 492 HVAC contractors, researchers established a 12-14 year average replacement cycle for residential air conditioning systems. The study also showed that many homeowners opted to replace the existing system before the product reached end-of-life usefulness. In most cases the decision for early AC replacement came about due to a perception that the cooling capacity and cost of unit operation was in excess of the homeowner’s expectations (1).

End conclusion: The efficiency of AC system performance plays a major role in how homeowners evaluate the useful life of a residential air conditioning system.

Efficient Evaporator Air Flow: Key Factor In Arizona Air Conditioning Performance

According to the Energy Star central air conditioner overview report, reaping the full benefits of an Energy Star certified heating and cooling system also requires that you “take steps to optimize” the practical performance of the system (2). In other words: even when a homeowner installs a new energy-efficient central A/C, successfully achieving an increase in performance depends on the skill, knowledge and applied principles of the HVAC installation crew.

One might think that proper installed air conditioning comes with the turf. Alas, this may not reflect actual conditions. The FCC survey included field tests of 70 residential A/C systems in Arizona as well as field tests of 27 systems in central California. In both test cases, the performance of the examined units failed to meet the system manufacturer’s declared Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER). Of the 70 units tested in Arizona, the average performance deficiency came in at 40% lower than the EER rating for the given unit.

Primary cause for underperformance: Insufficient airflow across the evaporator coil.

Adequate Air Flow Critical To Efficient A/C EER Returns

Conventional air conditioning units perform two primary functions:

  • 1) Sensible Cooling… The effective process of cooling the air
  • 2) Latent Cooling… The effective process of removing moisture from the air.

Reliable residential installed air conditioning (IAC) performance is primarily dependent on a balance between moisture removal and sensible heat transfer. This can only be achieved when the unit functions with ample air flow across the evaporator coil. The technical aspects involved in A/C installation and management of air handler fan speed, load requirements and airflow control exceed the limits of this article. However defining the consequences of miss-applied system installation is simple:

  • If the airflow over the coil is too high, the system is compromised. Moisture removal falls short, and fan power gets elevated.
  • If the airflow is too low, reduced system cooling occurs, and the system EER falls short. Furthermore: Extreme hindrance of airflow can cause icing of the evaporator coil. Likewise: Continuous problems with icing can lead to refrigerant flood-back. End result may even include early failure of the system compressor.

The dry Arizona climate typically equates to a low latent/humidity factor. When a Mesa home A/C system is correctly installed, years of maximum-performance efficiency become readily possible. Furthermore, if a home system is not aged-out but is rather suffering from major installation problems, correcting the errors can effectively restore new life to an older air conditioning unit. In essence, if your new energy-efficient home air conditioning system is incorrectly installed, it may actually perform nearly as badly as your aged and inefficient replaced unit.

Tips From American Cooling and Heating For Avoiding Poor AC Performance

It may be that your failing home cooling system is merely the consequence of a poorly installed unit. Or perhaps, time has played a role in the lack of adequate system performance. External conditions can change, wherein new obstacles now hinder the airflow to your external condenser unit. Duct sealant can fail and cause air leaks. Even in-duct grime can be a problem. Before discounting the efficiency of your Mesa home air-conditioning system, consider the steps of proper AC installation as listed below. An American Cooling and Heating home AC checkup can answer all of your questions, and if a new unit becomes the preferred solution, ACH will ensure that your system is correctly and effectively installed.

The following list offers no specific order, but the principles for correctly installing or configuring an air conditioning system remain true even if the system is aged. When installing a new HVAC system, American Cooling and Heating air conditioning technicians:

  • Allow ample indoor room for installation and future system servicing
  • Before positioning condensing unit, consider the noisy factor on neighbors as well as home occupants
  • Install sufficient air return and cool air delivery registers
  • Position condensing unit in an area free of objects that can create hindrance to airflow
  • Position system thermostat(s) for most effective heating and cooling response to home conditions
  • Prior to system installation, apply reliable duct-sizing tactics
  • Properly insulate attic ducts
  • Provide an access path cleaning the evaporator coil via a door into the duct or the furnace
  • Use effective and product-recommended duct sealing components
  • Verify correct and exact refrigerant charge
  • Verify that unit meets manufacturer-specified airflow rate
  • When possible, install ductwork inside the region of air-conditioned space.

Be your AC old or be it new, the ACH team is ready to help you get the most bang for your heating and cooling buck. Call us now!

Central AC InstallationAlready Favorable New Trane AC Affordability Enhanced By Seasonal Changes

 

In the realm of home comfort, what goes around always comes around. For the time being, Gilbert temperatures are in a downturn. But we all understand the nature of seasonal loops: Today’s cold spell is tomorrow’s heat wave. The months separating your home cooling system from the 110-degree plus scorch of yesterday will pass quicker than a kid’s Christmas toy.

 

  • Remember how hard your aged AC unit struggled against the grueling heat of this pass Arizona summer
  • Remember the super-sized cooling bills
  • Remember that odd chattering sound that came about every single time the outside condenser kicked into gear.

 

You knew then that the unit wasn’t going to make another season. But you bit your nails and hoped against hope until you essentially beat out the clock. That old worn out home cooling system actually managed to pull off one more victory over the Gilbert heat storms. But you know the death throbs are in place. Sooner rather than later, your existing air conditioning system is heading to the scrap mill.

 

And the comfort of your family hangs in the balance.

 

Perhaps you were ready even this year to buy a new cooling unit. But you just couldn’t catch that “perfectly affordable” new Trane AC deal. Well. The “ideal time” has finally arrived. The scent of A/C affordability is in the wind. Even now, American Cooling and Heating has determined to offer Gilbert residents the best post season pricing in the entire local new Trane Air Conditioning marketplace.

 

Save on Energy Cost While Also Saving On A New Gilbert New Trane AC

 

No one likes throwing money out the door. Yet an aged, poorly tuned or worn out home cooling system does exactly that. Inefficiency in home cooling is like inefficiency in an automobile engine: Both waste power and both lack in performance.

 

Unless delivered by nature, the cost of cold air is never cheap. But in many cases the cost is far higher than what needs to be. Modern Trane A/C systems stand unparalleled for energy efficiency. Many households save as much as 60 percent on the yearly energy bill. No matter the size of your home, Trane Air Conditioning equipment has a fit that will keep your household comfortable while also providing an economical and affordable replacement for a dying energy hog.
