In the heat of the Arizona desert, air conditioning is not a luxury – it’s a necessity. Unfortunately, cooling units can suffer just as many problems and maintenance issues here as anywhere else – perhaps even more due to the hot and dusty climate. When the air goes out and the temperatures are high, calling a qualified air conditioning repair technician in Phoenix is an immediate priority. Not only does Cooper Climate Control offer quick and convenient AC repair throughout the Phoenix area, but we can also inspect your current system to make sure it is in good working condition. There are three particular issues to watch for in the Phoenix area in regards to your AC unit.
Summertime can go from fun to frightening when an AC installation in Phoenix malfunctions, fails to perform, or worst-case scenario, dies completely. Luckily, performing aid conditioning system checks to prepare for a hot spring and even hotter summer weather is the best way to maintain your air conditioning unit year-round to ensure optimum performance when you need it most.
An AC unit that performs to the highest standard possible can mean a variety of benefits all year long. Here is some information about how and why AC system checks are so important, especially for Arizona homeowners!
It’s safe to say that the majority of people in Phoenix love animals; they are cute, adorable, give unconditional love, and are great companions to have around. But for the unlucky ones who are allergic to pet dander, having a pet is out of the question. Pet allergies can become a nuisance, especially if you’re constantly battling against itchy skin, watery eyes and respiratory problems. Unfortunately, for those who are highly allergic, the only recourse is to remove allergy inducing pets from the home. However, if mild allergies are the issue, usually a strong indoor air quality (IAQ) system from Cooper Climate Control, along with a routine cleaning, can make it easier to live with pets.
Winter has finally arrived and those homeowners who continuously put off quick and easy home repairs could find themselves left in the cold with a higher electricity bill this winter. Completing a few home improvement projects around the house now can save money on your next electricity bill. Electricity is one of the utilities that many homeowners struggle to keep under wraps, and your leaky house is likely the main contributor to that problem.
Summer is the season of relaxation and rest, but the scorching summer sun can mean working overtime for your air conditioning unit. In extreme heat, your unit has to work that much harder to keep your home comfortable. It’s important to take care of your AC unit so you can avoid breakdowns in the hottest months of the year. Luckily, there are some smart steps to avoid breakdowns and ensure that your home stays cool all summer long, even in the Phoenix heat.
Summer in Arizona is no joke: triple-digit temperatures require your air conditioning unit to work much harder than usual, which can put unnecessary strain on the mechanisms. In some cases, this might even be the final straw for your air conditioning unit, requiring a new installation designed to handle the Phoenix heat. If your AC unit goes out this summer, Cooper Climate Control’s Phoenix emergency air conditioning team can come to your rescue when you need it most. Here are some additional tips to stay cool this summer if the AC goes out.
The environment is making headlines this spring. It was recently announced that United States President Barak Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping will sign the Paris Climate Agreement on April 22nd to address climate change in alignment with global celebrations of Earth Day. The Earth Day Network has also pledged to plant one tree for every person on the planet by 2020 – an estimated 7.8 billion trees in total. While our world leaders have stepped up to create visible change in the environment, it is important to recognize the massive impact homeowners also have on the environment. The more sustainable, energy-efficient solutions you incorporate into your home, the cleaner our planet will be. The options to make a lasting impression on the climate are endless:
Inside the air handler of your Arizona air conditioning system is a cooling coil or evaporator coil. From a home cooling perspective, this is where the magic happens: where the actual cooling occurs. So, if there is a problem with the cooling or evaporator coil, you will notice a decrease in the performance of your AC system.
Often when we think of protecting our homes from possible theft, we look to safeguard our precious valuables inside the home. This is part of the reason why copper theft in our area is so insidious. Thieves target air conditioning units that sit unprotected outside the home, where it may take only a few minutes to destroy the unit while yielding valuable copper wiring.
Cooper Climate Control recognizes that market demand for copper continues to increase, which inflates the price for the precious metal. With the nature of supply and demand, copper theft is now a very prevalent crime, especially in areas like ours where the weather dictates the need for a cooling and heating system.
The good news is that prevention goes a long way in this case. Here are a few simple, fairly inexpensive steps you can use to limit your homes a/c unit exposure to copper theft.
Fall is upon us, and that means a welcomed break from our Arizona heat. As with any change of seasons, it is good practice to edit your home from what it needs to operate in the summer time months to what the fall weather dictates.
A good place to start is to walk the exterior of your home and look to clear away any rocks or debris that may have blown against the house. Check also to make sure that tree limbs are far enough away from your home, and look into removing those that are either too close or do not appear healthy.
This is also a perfect time to check on your heating and A/C unit. With the weather cooling off, many homes will be switching their thermostat to heat for the first time in months. Be sure that when you make the switch your heating and air conditioning unit is in peak condition.
