When is a Good Time to Get AC Maintenance?

The importance of regular AC maintenance cannot be overstated. A properly maintained AC unit will last longer and run better than one that has not been regularly inspected and cleaned. Maintenance includes not only a full inspection of your AC unit but also a thorough cleaning of interior components as well as adjustments and repairs to keep your unit in good working order throughout the hot summer months. Early is Best Air conditioning and heating experts agree that a yearly AC check-up is the best course of action.

What Is the Importance of AC Maintenance?

Spring is upon us, and summer is approaching quickly. That means it’s time to think about yearly maintenance for your air conditioner. It’s easy to take air conditioning for granted, but these systems need regular inspections, just like any other complex piece of machinery.

What Are the Benefits of Heat Pumps?

What Are Heat Pumps? Heat Pumps are basically air conditioning units that can also provide heat. Heat pumps have many benefits including decreasing energy (electricity) usage by 30-60% by more efficiently converting energy to heat, providing a source for medium to fast heating and providing both heating and cooling capacities. Heat Pumps are an alternative to utilizing a separate air conditioning unit to cool and a furnace to heat and since they move heat instead of generating heat, they are far less costly to operate. How Do Heat Pumps Work? Heat pumps collect heat from either the air, the ground or a water source outside the home, concentrate it, and then move the collected heat into a cool room inside the home to deliver heat. Using indoor and outdoor coils, heat pumps utilize a circulating liquid or gas refrigerant and a compressor to extract latent heat from the external source and release it into the home to provide heating. Heat pumps provide cooling just like air conditioning units by removing warm air from warm rooms and moving it to the outside of the home. Air to Air Heat Pumps The most popular type of heat pump transfers heat between the...

What Are Evaporator Coils and Fan Coils?

What Are Evaporator Coils? Ever wonder where the heat in your house goes when you turn on your air conditioner? First and foremost, it’s absorbed by evaporator coils. The evaporator coils hold chilled refrigerant moved into them via the compressor. When the warm air in your house comes in contact with the chilled coils, it cools the air temperature. That, in turn, warms the refrigerant inside the evaporator coils, which then moves back into the unit’s condenser coil for recooling as the absorbed heat is released into the outdoors. Heat pumps also have evaporator coils, and the above process is exactly reversed when you wish to heat your home. Keeping evaporator coils clean is crucial for both safety and energy efficiency reasons. Dirty coils result in: Ice or frost buildup Less efficient heat absorption and cooling ability Higher levels of energy use to provide the same heating or cooling Higher pressures and temperatures, resulting in unnecessary wear What Are Fan Coils? At its most basic, a fan coil unit is the simple combination of a fan and heat exchanger (the coil). It is used in commercial, residential, and industrial buildings. A fan coil unit is a self-contained unit, as opposed to air...

Geothermal Energy: How It Works

Geothermal energy is simply heat energy from the Earth. The underground reservoirs of hot water, steam, and hot rocks can be tapped into to generate electricity or be used for heating and cooling purposes in buildings. Geothermal energy can be captured through geothermal power plants or geothermal heat pumps. Here’s more on how it works on the latter. How Geothermal Energy Works With Heat Pumps If you are thinking of adding a heating system to your home, geothermal heat pump installation Gilbert, AZ is an ideal option to consider. A geothermal heat pump system relies on the earth’s constant temperature as the medium of exchange for heat. Ground temperatures often vary depending on latitude. In summer, the ground temperatures tend to be cooler than the air above it and warmer in winter. Some areas experience occasional temperatures extremes defined by sub-zero cold in winter and scorching heat in summer. Therefore, the heat pumps are often installed just a few feet below the surface of the earth where temperatures are relatively constant. A geothermal heat pump system is made up of a heat exchanger, the heat pump itself, and a ductwork system. In winter, the heat pump works by removing heat...
