Is Now the Right Time to Replace My Air Conditioner?

Shopping for a new air conditioner can be an overwhelming task. That’s where the team at Honest Air comes in. We are the leading choice for services for air conditioning in Gilbert AZ because of our service quality and the dedication we have to our customers. We’ll help you ask the right questions to determine if now’s the time to upgrade your AC unit: How old is the unit? If it’s more than 10-15 years old, it’s at the end of its lifespan. How efficient is the unit? If it’s 10-15 years old, or even nearing that age range, it’s likely the system isn’t very efficient. Cooling systems get more and more efficient with each passing year, which will save you money on cooling bills. How much do you spend each month on energy bills? We’ll help you compare what is average for a home your size with an average air conditioner. If you’re spending much more than that, there’s an issue.

Is it Time to Replace My Furnace?

You may not use your heating in Scottsdale Arizona as often as some people in colder climates do, but that doesn’t mean your furnace won’t wear out eventually. Sometimes, because our furnaces get so little use, it can be hard to tell when something is wrong or when they might need to be replaced. Here are a few things to consider: How old is your furnace? A furnace has a typical lifespan of around 15 years depending on the original quality and how well it was maintained. A furnace that isn’t properly maintained through the years won’t likely last as long as one that is. If your furnace is approaching this range or is over it, it’s probably a good time to start thinking about replacing it. How much are your utility bills? HVAC systems decline in efficiency over their lifespan. Even if you originally purchased the most efficient furnace available, it will be much less efficient 15 years later. If you notice your utility bills climbing higher and higher each year for no apparent reason, your HVAC system is likely to blame. Furnaces are much more efficient today than they once were so you can typically expect to see...

Easy Ways to Reduce Your Utility Bills This Winter

Conserving energy isn’t just good for the environment – it’s good for your budget! Most people don’t love having to spend money on their utility bills and would much rather put that money toward something else. Luckily, saving energy doesn’t require expensive remodeling projects or solar panels – you can save energy without spending any money at all! Here are some easy ways to save energy this winter: Use the sun to your advantage. Open blinds and curtains during peak sunlight hours, especially for windows that get direct light. The warmth from the sun will help warm your space and can help reduce the need to run your furnace. Invest in a heated blanket or mattress pad or just pile on a few extra blankets on your bed so you can turn the heat down at night. Once you are tucked warmly in your bed, fast asleep, you won’t notice a few degrees difference, but your utility bill will! Be sure windows, doors, and chimneys are sealed properly. Replace weather stripping or caulking if needed. Inflatable inserts can be placed in your chimney to help reduce the air that leaks out of it. Use your ceiling fan to your advantage....

How To Lower Your Heating Bill

Winter comes, the season is merry and bright… until you get your winter energy bill and see how expensive it can be to keep your home at a reasonable temperature this time of year. There are some simple ways to lower your heating bill and increase the money in your pocket this holiday season: Change out worn weather-stripping for new weather stripping. Whether it’s old, has been damaged by children or pets, or is missing in certain areas of your home, make sure that every door in your home is properly sealed from the outside air. Since up to 30% of your heating bill can come from heating drafty areas, this will save you big money. Use a portable heater or heating blanket to heat the specific area of your home you are in. If you have a large home, odds are you are paying to heat a lot of space that you are not occupying very often. This will allow you to lower your thermostat and still be comfortable in whatever room you’re in. Make sure warm air is not escaping through places you might not have considered. Insulate your attic access door, for example, and make sure your...

A buyer’s guide: Air conditioning filters

Planned Phase-out of R-22 Refrigerant in Mesa Air Conditioning Systems

As the heat rises across the Arizona desert, many news stations have been reporting on the planned phaseout of R-22 refrigerants. If you have a Gilbert air conditioning system which was manufactured before 2010, there is a chance that it uses R-22 to produce cool air. Unfortunately, it has been deemed an ozone-depleting substance and may be linked to global warming. In order to protect our environment, the United States Environmental Protection Agency has outlined a gradual reduction in the importation and production of this refrigerant. This phaseout complements the worldwide initiative established by the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone, developed in 19871. Basically, production will be (and has been) decreased by a predetermined percentage, until the year 2020, in which production will cease completely1. While manufacturers will be cutting back on production over the next eight years, supplies will still be available to Gold Canyon AC repair services for use in repairs and maintenance initiatives for customers with systems using R-22, also known as HCFC-22. This means that there should not be any direct affect for consumers for many years. Be sure to keep in mind that the laws of supply and demand may ultimately lead...
