When the heat ramps up in Phoenix, it means business. Unless you’ve got a working air conditioning system in your home, you’ll be dealing with conditions that are… well, unbearable really isn’t an exaggeration, is it? Not when the outdoor thermometers are registering heat above 110°F!
If you want something done right… don’t do it yourself! At least, not if it’s something involving your home’s air conditioning system.
As air conditioning technology advances, newer units run more quietly than ever. This means that when something goes wrong with an AC system, the resulting noise is more noticeable than ever… and more worrying.
Arizona residents are no strangers to the heat of summer. In addition to ensuring you’re well equipped with a high-efficiency, functioning air conditioner, you likely are looking for ways to save even more energy and thus save money.
Last week, we talked about when it’s time to replace your AC. This is one of the most important decisions you can make in a place that gets as sweltering hot as central Arizona, since you’ll depend on a cooling system almost every day during the middle of the year.
The phrase “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” does apply to many things in life, such as popular formulas for television programs that are still pulling in hefty ratings, or a menu at a restaurant that has kept patrons happy for many years. However, this philosophy doesn’t apply to mechanical devices that can actually break, such as your home’s heater and AC.
A gas log fireplace is a wonderful luxury for a home in Arizona. We don’t rely on heating systems as much as other parts of the country that deal with colder winters… but that doesn’t mean we can’t also enjoy the beauty of a fireplace.
