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.

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.

Trane HVAC affects Arizona LifestyleMaintaining A Comfortable Home Against High Temperature Arizona  Summers

Home cooling in Arizona means installing air conditioning equipment that is capable of dealing with sequential months wherein the average temperature exceeds 90-plus degrees. In fact, Phoenix regional homes endure a season wherein heat increase rises well above 100-degrees for up to four consecutive months. It’s the kind of circumstances that make summer comfort almost as important as survival in below zero winter temperatures.

With each passing year it seems Arizona residents are pressed into even more days of unprecedented high heat index numbers. So even though Trane HVAC and other HVAC manufacturers continue to introduce better energy-efficient heat pumps and air conditioners, the cost of staying cool keeps rising. More hours of equipment operation means greater costs for comfort. The following tips show how to reduce the load on your Arizona air conditioning system.

Home Cooling, Reducing Heat In Your Home by Reducing Solar Heat Gain

People enjoy sunshine – even when the associated heat gain prompts increased energy consumption by home air conditioning systems. Weather that enables a wonderful day at the water park also forces higher cooling bills for the homestead. Longer hours of sunshine produce greater accumulation of solar heat gain. In the Arizona summer when the sun is higher in the sky, daylight hours increase and the associated heat gain accumulates even more. So keep the heat out. Here’s how:

  • Install Sunscreens – Perhaps budget conditions forbid installation of window awnings. Take a look at sunscreens as an alternative solution. Crafted from wood panels or louvered slats, sunscreens fit over windows in a manner similar to shutters.
  • Install Window Awnings – Whether crafted from rigid or flexible materials, window awnings reduce the heat that transmits through the windows of Phoenix houses. Even windows facing South or North can benefit from installed window awnings.
  • Overhangs – If a home is already completed, this suggestion doesn’t apply to the circumstance. However, for Arizona homeowners in the process of building, or perhaps doing some major remodeling, crafting wide overhangs will help shield windows and doors from the blistering Phoenix regional summer sunshine.
  • Plant Trees – If planted at a proper distance from the home, trees offer shade and reduced inside heat gain. But some cons exist: Even quick growing trees take many years to reach a height that provides full benefits. Also, if planted too near a home, the roots of the trees can end up causing issues with the foundation.

Home Cooling, Keeping the Heat Out and Reducing Indoors Heat

2013 Tax Credit for AC InstallationStopping solar heat-gain involves external solutions. The second line of defense involves controlling heat gain from within the home. This means reducing indoor heat as well as keeping heat out.

Keeping Heat Out Improves Home Cooling Efficiency…

  • Adequate Home Insulation – To keep a cool home, install sufficient and effective insulation in the walls, the attic, and the crawlspace.
  • Managed Air Flow – Close the windows and doors. Latch them. Proper home cooling demands a tightly sealed home.
  • Leak Prevention – Find the gaps around the doors, windows, vents and electrical outlets. Seal them.

Reducing Indoors Heat Assures More Efficient Home Cooling…

  • Scheduled Applications – Appliances emit heat, some more so than others. Use a timer to schedule the dishwasher so that it only runs during the late evening hours. Plan clothes drying for late night TV time.
  • Remember the “Off” Switch – From lights to televisions, stop burning electricity on devices not in use. Even small appliances resulted in accumulated heat spots.
  • Ventilate – When bathing in hot water, use exhaust fans. Likewise when cooking on the range or even when running the dishwasher.

Home Cooling, Choose the Right Air Conditioning System

Home air conditioning systems strip heat from the inside air. This means more cool for you. But not all systems function with the same efficiency. Every Arizona home is different, and requires a precise cooling configuration of equipment and installation.

Ducted forceAC Service Technician In Arizonad-air systems are the most common method of controlled home cooling. However, many components define the effectiveness of the installed A/C unit. Product selection based upon SEER ratings may seem simple and straightforward, yet the path to energy-efficient home comfort is often clouded by an assortment of additional calculations and considerations.

American Cooling and Heating offers Arizona residents the finest home cooling resources available to the region. Competitive HVAC product and installation prices form the core attraction, but our 100% workmanship guarantee is what ensures that your home cooling equipment functions at a true Energy Star efficiency rating.

Nexia Home AutomationArgument: Is A Programmable Thermostat Efficient?

According to one regional Department of Commerce web file, nearly 70% of the homes that currently heat and cool via the control of an installed programmable thermostat are wasting money (1). It seems that most homeowners fail to complete a primary step in the installation process: they don’t program the thermostat.

Thus a device designed to help you save energy ends up being no more efficient than the manual version of the same product. Hey. It doesn’t have to be that way. Fact is: if programmed effectively, the first-year savings from a correctly installed and programmed home comfort management system can sometimes recoup the full cost of the unit. Just ask the tech to help you get started.

After the initial unit cost is recovered, the energy saving from your thermostat investment becomes a cumulative benefit. A properly programmed “smart” thermostat requires less personal attention therefore you get superior home A/C comfort with better energy efficiency without the added cost of consistent manual manipulation of the controls.

Types of Thermostat – The Basics

A/C thermostats are used to control the temperature within a business, home or various sections thereof. By gauging internal temperature in relation to a pre-set comfort configuration, the thermostat activates the power controls on a central air conditioning, furnace, or heat pump comfort system. Furthermore, if the associated home comfort system includes air exchangers or humidifiers, the thermostat can control those mechanical systems also.

Throughout the ages, HVAC technology has advanced from a collection of simple and half-effective ideas to a degree of well throughout purposeful home comfort management systems that stuns the mind of the modern A/C consumer. Current thermostat options include: manual, programmable, and smart. Herein is a brief description of each format:

Manual Thermostat Units

In the tradition of the times, the wheel on early manual thermostats followed the nature of a dial telephone. The homeowner dials up the number (desired temperature setting) and conditions in the home or business remain stable as such until such time as someone rotates the dial left or right. However, due to the need of manual intervention, most folks have a habit of selecting a “comfortable” setting and then leaving it in place — even at night or during times when nobody is home to gain the benefits of a human-comfortable setting.

Programmable thermostat Units

By enabling users to make one-time changes wherein the temperature settings shift according to time of day or time of night, programmable thermostats up the efficiency of even a poorly performing HVAC system. Digital units, typically driven via touch-screen technology, enable users to make these changes directly on the device itself. Some models, for example the Trane XL800 Digital Thermostat, include multiple mode settings such as:

  • Min and max heating and cooling ranges
  • Hot key for daylight savings adjustments
  • Permanent memory storage
  • Auto and manual changeover features
  • “Dead Band” set points between heating and cooling changeover modes
  • And a host of other exciting options.

Various models also include options for auto-changeover for weekends and weekdays, evening to night and even special adjustment modes for morning versus daylight hours. Furthermore, many programmable systems include the power to manage and control heat pumps, air exchangers, humidifiers and other mechanical devices.

Smart Thermostat Units

Designed for the homeowner or business owner with a desire to reap even greater energy efficiency than that which can be provided via a digital programmable thermostat, Trane and other major A/C manufacturers have developed “Smart” thermostat technology. The programming options typically match or exceed the modes provided by a digital system, however Smart thermostats include one significant improvement: Smart thermostats use an applied rudimentary form of artificial intelligence so that they can actually “learn” the heating and cooling preferences of the user. This means the unit can actually make adjustments according to the factual presence of a human being within the dwelling or office. Additional features include Wi-Fi control via smart phone apps, tablets or personal computers. This also enables the homeowner to receive monthly e-mail reports that offer suggestions for even more efficient use of the system.

Trane Tracer Concierge HVAC Control SystemSome “Smart” units even link to home security systems. Thus some “Smart” programmable thermostat units not only monitor and control your homes HVAC systems, they can also provide remote monitoring and operation of many other home security and comfort functions.

To help guide your choices in this matter, American Cooling and Heating places a five-star mark of confidence in the Trane ComfortLink™ II SMART CONTROL. This intuitive and innovative touch-screen home HVAC management system functions well with most any other brand of standard central heating and air conditioning systems as well as with the Trane brand name. Among the many standard functions included with the ComfortLink™ II SMART CONTROL, you get:

  • Custom Scheduling and Control

  • Indoor/Outdoor Temperature Monitoring

  • Filter Monitoring

  • Remote Access

  • Live Weather Reports With Radar Images and More

  • And A Fantastic Digital Picture Frame Display For Times When The Unit Is Not In Use.

Three Points Critical To Efficient Use of a Programmable Thermostat

Installation – Although the physical installation of a programmable system may be fairly simple for some folks, remember that damaging your system due to a crossed wiring accident isn’t going to play well with the product warranty. Some units require wiring changes that the average homeowner is better off leaving to the skills of a trained HVAC technician. Furthermore, if you plan to include additional devices, the wiring tends to get even more complex.

Location – It’s all about performance and efficiency. To function most effectively, a thermostat should be located away from doorways, drafts, direct sunlight, windows and other specific forms of interference. The installer must also consider air currents such as those involved in war air rising or the opposite which is cool air sinking.

Programming Your Thermostat – Now is when the homeowner really has to consider various options, options that no tech can weigh-in without homeowner input. However, even without knowing the basics of your household family schedules, don’t let the tech leave without having him or her walk you through some of the basic programming processes. With American Cooling and Heating, you won’t need to worry about being inadequately trained. Our techs want you to know your system and how to get the best from your new programmable thermostat control unit.
