The calendar indicates that this is the beginning of spring. Here in the Colorado River Valley and western Arizona that means that the thermometer will soon hit 90 degrees and higher. Are you ready?

A great rule of thumb is to clean and inspect your HVAC unit every change of season or every three months. This is particularly important when it is time to switch from heat to cooling. An accumulation of dirt and debris can prevent your unit from functioning at peak performance. It can also shorten the units life. You would be surprised by the amount of dried leaves, sand and clutter that that collect around the condenser unit. For air conditioners this inspection should be made at least twice a year.
During the inspection if we find issues with the compressor or air handler, that is something we can replace to ensure a worry free summer. We are also available to perform diagnostics and test your units, as well as make repairs even between inspections.
A regular cleaning schedule also ensures that the filters are replaced. Dirty or damaged filters do more than reduce the unit’s efficiency. It can lead to problems with allergies and even mold. Dirty filters make the system work harder and this shortens the units life as well as will result in increased use of electricity.
Electrical connections can be inspected during the cleaning. For obvious reasons it is best to leave this as well as electrical repairs to the experts. Aside from possible damage to the unit, electrical components can result in serious injury if not replaced or repaired by a qualified technician. On older units the technician preparing it for summer use will turn off the pilot light. While this may not be a big energy consumer, every little bit helps.
And if you are looking for a new or replacement unit, household or commercial, that too is our specialty. We can evaluate the current system as well as your needs including the correct size, and provide complete estimates to ensure there are no surprises. And then we will handle the job from start to finish in a timely manner.
