Watch Out for these Air Conditioning Nightmares

Monday, June 16th, 2014

Living in Phoenix AZ has many luxuries. We get seven months of really awesome weather which makes up for the other five months of really intense heat. In Phoenix we have all major sports teams, all the big concerts, beautiful lakes and mountains, and if you want to ski in the winter you can drive two hours north and get radical, and when you’re done, you can drive back down to the valley back into seventy degree temps. The valley of the sun also offers some of the best fine dining in the country and we’re becoming more well known for our micro brews and wine.

Having many luxuries in our large city can also have it’s negatives. As mentioned above, our summers are brutal with temps reaching as high as 115 degrees. With so many people living out here and so many HVAC contractors to choose from, sometimes it’s a bit overwhelming to choose the most qualified and most honest and trustworthy.

Making sure our air conditioning units are running efficiently before the summer heat get’s here is very important. Having an a/c unit breakdown in the middle of 115 degree heat is no fun at all. You can put your family and pets in a lot of danger if your home does not having cool air flowing through it during these hot summer days. That’s why it’s so important to research the local air conditioning repair and installation companies in your town. Here’s at Cool Touch we have a perfect rating with the Phoenix Better Business Bureau and a perfect rating with YELP. Yelp is a very popular website that people use to check out the local services in their cities. You can get reviews from people who have used your services and usually if you come across a company profile like ours, you’re more than likely to call and use our services.

Back in May 2014 (this year), a woman in Florida needed to have an air conditioning repair technician come out to her home for what was supposed to be a quick fix of her stuck thermostat. When the a/c tech got to her home he tried to pull a fast one. Just because this was in Florida does not mean that Phoenix Arizona does not have these types of con artists. You need to do your due diligence and select only the local HVAC contractors that have good track records, even if that means paying a little more. Get it done right the first time and protect yourself from being swindled out of thousands of dollars.

Check out this video http://www.nbcmiami.com/news/local/Team-6-Investigation-AIr-Repair-Nightmares-258050741.html.

Remember, sometimes you may pay more for a service call, but usually if the company has a solid history, you’re not going to pay much more than the service call fee or for service work that may need to be done. I’d rather pay for those things than get hosed out of a few hundred or even thousands of dollars for equipment that I never even needed in the first place.

How to Avoid Heat Related Illnesses During A/C Failure

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

Phoenix Arizona is one of the hottest places in the country from May to September. Heat related illnesses are common during the summer months and year after year, nearly 2,000 people visit Arizona emergency rooms because of heat-related illnesses. Some heat illnesses could even be fatal. Over 1,500 deaths from exposure to excessive natural heat have occurred in Arizona from 2000 to 2012.

If you’re beginning to hear weird sounds coming from your A/C unit that’s a sign it’s time to have it checked. Letting whatever the issue is, even the smallest of issues, can cause further damage down the road, leading to breakdowns or even worse replacement.

In the event your system fails during a hot day, or perhaps you just get back from vacation and your system isn’t running, call Cool Touch immediately so we can get your cool air flowing again. While your waiting for a technician to get there please follow the tips below to keep your family safe.

Tips to Keep Cool in the Event of A/C System Failure:

– Drink water. Be heat safe and avoid alcohol and caffeine, which dehydrate the body. Avoid using salt tablets unless directed to do so by a physician.

– Dress for the heat. Get into lightweight, light-colored clothing. Light colors will reflect away some of the sun’s energy. It is also a good idea to wear hats or to use an umbrella. If you need to go outside always apply sunscreen to exposed skin. Eat small meals and eat more often. Avoid foods that are high in protein which increase metabolic heat.

– Slow down. Avoid strenuous activity. Do not workout while waiting to have your A/C unit checked. This will cause your body’s temperature to rise and you want to stay as cool as possible.

– Use box fans and ceiling fans to promote air circulation throughout your home.

– Take advantage of the cooling power of water. Fill buckets or basins and soak your feet. Wet towels and bandannas can have a cooling effect when worn on the shoulders or head. Take cool showers or baths, and consider using a spray bottle filled with cold water for refreshing spritzes throughout the day.

– Head downstairs. Since hot air rises, the upper stories of a home will be warmer than the ground floor.

– Eliminate extra sources of heat. Incandescent light bulbs can generate unnecessary heat, as can computers or appliances left running. Eat fresh foods that do not require you to use the oven or stove to prepare.

– For a homemade “air conditioning” system, sit in the path of a box fan that is aimed at an open cooler, or pan filled with ice.

– Try to visit public buildings with air conditioning during the hottest hours of the day if the heat becomes unbearable. Libraries, shopping malls, and movie theaters can all be good places to cool down.

– Be able to recognize the symptoms of heat-related illnesses and true heat emergencies (heat cramps, heat rash, heat exhaustion, heat stroke). Call emergency services (911) in the event of a heat emergency and try to cool the victim until help arrives.

– Finally, remember that pets also suffer when the temperature rises. Cooling animals (dogs, rabbits, cats) by giving them a “cool” bath or shower will help keep their body temperature down. A cool towel on a tile floor to lay on, a cool towel or washcloth laying over the skin next to a fan will also help cool the animal. Make sure they have plenty of cool water to drink as well.

Cool Touch is just a phone call away seven days a week. If your cooling system fails call us immediately so we can get you, your loved ones, and pets into cool air as fast as possible. Your health is important to us and it’s not worth risking it during the Phoenix summer heat. Contact us today to have your system checked by visiting our website at https://cooltouch.us.

When the A/C Unit Blows Warm Air or Sounds Strange

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

In Phoenix Arizona the summer days feel like an oven. Literally, you feel like you just walked into one of those big pizza ovens all the mom and pop pizza shops have across town. The sun is so direct out here and very powerful that anything exposed to sun light all day can take a serious beating.

You air conditioning unit is no different than anything else sitting out in the sun. Wear and tear on your cooling system can start to take place and before you know it, Wham, your system has started showing signs of trouble.

Follow these tips to prevent air conditioning system breakdown.

To keep your home comfortable you need your air conditioning running at it’s best!

What to do if you find that you air conditioning unit is making loud noises?

– This could be caused by a low refrigerant charge. A dirty air filter of evaporator coil or undersized duct work.

– This could be an indication of an impending system failure!

– Shut off your system immediately to avoid more serious problems!

– Your air conditioning system should be checked and diagnosed by a professional technician at Cool Touch!

What to do if you find that you air conditioning unit is blowing warm air?

– This could be caused by many factors ranging from a refrigerant leak to a mechanical or electrical problem.

– There’s a good chance that your condenser is simply dirty. If cleaning the condenser unit doesn’t solve your problem, then you likely need to have your refrigerant recharged. This is something best left to a professional.

– Often, a simple human error in the AC settings could be the reason for a hot air blowout. You might have flicked the selector switch to “heat” instead of putting it on “cool”. If such is the case, the heat mode sets on and you automatically receive warm air from the AC. All you need to do is to switch it back to “cool” mode again to resume proper functioning.

Below is a video with basic air conditioning maintenance steps. This outlines the basics in keeping your cooling system running efficiently and should be used to give you a better idea and understanding of your unit. In Phoenix AZ, an A/C system generally needs a thorough check up due to all the dust and debris we have out here that could get into your system. Never try to perform professional maintenance to your system if you haven’t been trained to do so. Leaving that for a certified technician at Cool Touch is the safer way to go.

Trusting Your A/C & Heating Contractor is Important

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

We’ve all heard the stories about home owners and commercial businesses getting ripped off by their local HVAC contractor. Too many times people have called upon A/C and heating companies to come to their home or business for what they thought would be a simple tune up only to be taken for hundreds, sometimes even thousands of dollars. We’ve even heard of a homeowner who’s issue had to do with a simple adjustment to their thermostat, however, the HVAC company they called told them they needed a whole new cooling system which ended up costing them a few thousand. Ridiculous!!

Cool Touch A/C & HeatingCool Touch Air Conditioning and Heating is proud to state that we have a perfect rating with the Phoenix Better Business Bureau. We also have an outstanding reputation on the social website Yelp. Our technicians are professionally trained and certified and offer the best customer service you will find around Phoenix and the east and west valleys. If a customer doesn’t need an expensive part, repair or system replacement, our techs will be the first to tell them. We’re not in the business of increasing profits through lies. Cool Touch is in the business of gaining our customers trust so they become a customer for life.

In order to prevent getting ripped off by a dishonest air conditioning & heating company in Phoenix, please follow the list of tips below.

How to Find a Credible Air Conditioning & Heating Company:

— Find out about license and insurance requirements for contractors in your state. And before you call a contractor, know the model of your current system and its maintenance history. Also make note of any uncomfortable rooms. This will help potential contractors better understand your heating needs.

– Ask for referrals — Ask friends, neighbors, and co-workers for contractor referrals. You can also contact local trade organizations for names of members in your area.

– Check your local Better Business Bureau and popular local business social websites (Yelp, Magic Yellow, Brown Book, Angies List, Google Plus, etc)

– Call references — Ask contractors for customer references and call them. Ask about the contractor’s installation or service performance, and if the job was completed on time and within budget.

– Find special offers — A heating and cooling system is one of the largest purchases you’ll make as a homeowner. Keep your costs down by checking around for available rebates on energy-efficient ENERGY STAR qualified heating and cooling equipment. Begin your search at www.energystar.gov.

– Look for ENERGY STAR — ENERGY STAR qualified products meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and offer significant long-term energy savings. Contractors should be able to show you calculations of savings for ENERGY STAR heating and cooling equipment.

– Expect a home evaluation — The contractor should spend significant time inspecting your current system and home to assess your needs. A bigger system isn’t always better; a contractor should size the heating and cooling system based on the size of your house, level of insulation, and windows. A good contractor will inspect your duct system (if applicable) for air leaks and insulation and measure airflow to make sure it meets manufacturers specifications.

– Get written, itemized estimates — When comparing contractors’ proposals (bids), be sure to compare cost, energy efficiency and warranties. A lowest price may not be the best deal if it’s not the most efficient because your energy costs will be higher.

– Get it in ink — Sign a written proposal with a contractor before work gets started. It’ll protect you by specifying project costs, model numbers, job schedule and warranty information.

– Pass it on — Tell friends and family about ENERGY STAR. Almost one-quarter of households knowingly purchased at least one qualified product last year, and 71% of those consumers say they would recommend ENERGY STAR to a friend. Spread the word, and we can all make a big difference.

– Don’t Assume The Lowest Price Company Is The One You Should Hire. While price matters, don’t let the initial price be the only consideration when choosing a heating and cooling contractor. As with most things in life, price is usually an indication of quality. And high quality is essential for a new heating and cooling system. The long term costs to own it usually far exceed the initial cost to buy it. Another concern is that the low price you see advertised or are quoted may not be the price you end up paying. Some contractors offer an unrealistically low price to get the job and then pressure you into paying a lot more after starting.

If you want to get the best value for your money, solve existing discomfort or dust problems, fix repairs and prevent them, or end up with a new comfort system you’ll be proud to own and enjoy for many years to come, take the time to identify one of the few contractors who can really put your new system in right. This is a unique opportunity. Don’t waste it.air-conditioning by Cool Touch

Change Your Air Filters Every Thirty Days

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

How often do you replace your air filters within your home? The rule of thumb is to change them every 30 days. Let’s be honest, most of us forget and let it go much longer than it should. We all have busy lives and we end up putting it off for whatever reasons. It’s such a simple task that we cannot afford to let this happen, it’s far too important to let it go.

Dirty air filters restrict airflow and cause your unit to over work. This results in you overpaying on your energy bills and can lead to other major problems including compressor damage. The air filter is literally the most important part of an air conditioning system. It doesn’t just clean the air that you breath, it prevents dirt and debris from clogging your evaporator coil. When an evaporator coil becomes clogged the air conditioning system loses its capacity and efficiency. This is exactly what you don’t want to happen.

Running your air conditioning system without air filters is a major no-no. Even for just one day while you drive to pick a new one up at the store. This is not recommended. You see evaporators are wet because they condense the moisture that exists in your home. So when dust hits the evaporator is tends to cake on especially when dog or cat hair is present. We don’t want this to happen, this is the foundation for more dirt and debris to build upon. One day the air blows from the ducts at 55 degrees then the next month it blows at 57 degrees, then 59, 62, 66 and up, until you call because it’s no longer blowing cold. As the dust accumulates on the evaporator the air conditioner slowly becomes less and less effective. Now you have a service technician at your home trouble-shooting the problem and he finds that the compressor has failed. This can happen because if air is not able to pass across the evaporator then the refrigerant from the evaporator returns to the compressor as a liquid.

When liquid refrigerant returns to the compressor it damages the compressor. Compressors are not very forgiving to liquid refrigerant. Compressors are designed as vapor pumps, the refrigerant needs to be in vapor form. The return air is what makes the refrigerant in the evaporator boil into vapor. If the evaporator is clogged this process is limited causing this type of problem. We all have enough on our plates, let’s not neglect our air conditioning units and cause ourselves more to deal with. Change your air filters every thirty days. It’s the best thing a homeowner can do to maintain their air conditioners operating condition.

A simple video on how to change your air filters for those who need a refresher. If you have any questions please call Cool Touch at 623-584-3762 and one of our experienced team members will gladly assist you.

Air Ventilation in Your Home

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Often times if our homes aren’t being properly heated and cooled, we assume the issue lies with the furnace or air conditioner. This is a good place to start and by no means should it be neglected, however your home’s ductwork and ventilation system plays an important role in keeping your home at a desired, comfortable temperature.

A professional HVAC technicican should be the one to properly asses your home’s ductwork. Based on the overall square footage of your home, square footage of each individual room, and the insulation of each room, there are specific requirements for the size of the duct leading to the room, and the dimensions of the register that acts as a gateway for air to be dispersed throughout the room. If the size of the duct and register are either too large or too small, the wrong amount of air will be delivered to that room. For example, a bathroom and a bedroom should not have the same capacity ventilation network distributing air to each room, and if that is the case, the bathroom ductwork and register should be reduced in accordance with the room’s size so the bedroom is not being forfeited the proper amount of air.

Common Sources of Low Air Flow

* Blockage and build ups. Dirt and dust can build up on your air filter, as well as clogging tight lines and even wider spots like your ducts. The net result – besides spreading dust and dirt throughout your home – is to lower the overall flow of air, forcing your air conditioner to work harder to do its job and increasing the risk of future repairs.

* Fan motor problems. Faulty electrical wiring or an internal problem with the fan motor will cause it to turn more slowly, lowering the flow of the air. In the case of a damaged wire, the problem is easy for a professional to correct, but a burnt-out motor is a serious repair that may necessitate replacing the whole air conditioner.

* Bent or misaligned fan blades. Fan blades can become misaligned through damage, or individual blades may become bent. The fan may also run into trouble if a foreign objects like a twig or loose screw gets jammed into its mechanism.

When your ductwork is inspected by a professional, they will also check to see if any areas have begun to sag and if they are in need of a cleaning. When ductwork sags, it becomes susceptible to joints opening and leaking air into the dead spaces of your home. If this is the case, then you are paying for air that isn’t being delivered to your living space, and your HVAC unit is working harder than it should be to maintain an appropriate temperature. Over time, dust and debris will collect in your ducts, compromising the quality of the air you’re breathing. You ducts should be cleaned regularly, with the frequency depending on the factors within your home, like number of occupants and pets and allergy concerns.

When you want to make sure that your ducts are indeed blocked or are the cause of your home’s air flow issues, call Cool Touch Air Conditioning and Heating. Our professional team of technicians will come out and give you an honest assessment and determine if your ducts need to be cleaned or if there are other factors involved with your air flow.

Find an A/C Installation Expert Using These Tips

Monday, April 14th, 2014

You don’t want your A/C and heating units installed by just anyone. Look for local HVAC companies who have been in the business for years. Companies who have been around for multiple years or generations have built a reputation for quality service. Hiring an HVAC contractor with experience is a must.

Cool Touch A/C TechnicianWith today’s sophisticated heating and cooling systems, you want to make sure to find an HVAC company that is licensed, bonded, and insured. This will confirm that the contractor is competent, skilled, and insured against any injuries on the job. Find NATE (North American Technician Excellence)-certified companies who specialize in superior installation and maintenance. Look for only factory-trained, certified technicians to install your air conditioning system.

Choose a company who offers a broad range of services; this means they have more areas of expertise and can help with unforeseen problems. Also find out if they provide integration options for an HVAC system you may already have.

  • Do they provide residential services? Find a company whose friendly, certified technicians will come to your home to replace, install, integrate, and repair your air conditioning system. Be wary of companies who use “after hours” rates or weekend rates.
  • How about commercial services? You want to find a reliable company who can help you run your business smoothly during a system failure. Refer to past work they’ve done with other businesses.
  • During peak times of summer heat, air conditioning failure can become an emergency situation. Find a company who offers 24-hour service to better serve you. Clients like you who may need emergency service during non-business hours are crucial to any reputable HVAC company.

    Dependable HVAC companies will have many locations throughout Arizona to make themselves more accessible to you. Companies who also offer same day service make a huge difference compared to others. In emergency situations, accessibility to different locations is critical.

    Professional HVAC ServicesThe HVAC industry is extremely competitive and most companies will promise you the lowest prices around. However, take into account the type and quality of services they offer against their prices. Choose someone who offers high quality service at a reasonable price. More importantly, make sure you’re provided a written quotation or contract prior to and after your project is completed.

    Your Homes Air Quality May Be the Cause of Sleepless Nights

    Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

    For those with allergies or asthma, falling asleep can be challenging—especially during the spring.

    But why do allergies and asthma symptoms act up inside? (Aside from the pollen you’re letting into your home.)

    This might surprise you, but your home’s air pollutant levels may be 2 to 5 times higher than the air outside, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These toxic pollutants aggravate allergies and asthma symptoms.

    These pollutants come from a variety of common household products like:

    * Air Freshners

    * Cleaning Products

    * Paints

    * Furnitures

    In this article, we’ll show you how to keep your home’s air clean, so you can get a peaceful night’s sleep.

    1) Purge indoor sources of toxic pollutants

    Before you start shoveling water out of a canoe, you must first plug the holes. Similarly, before you start cleaning your air, you must get rid of the source of pollutants.

    There are many sources of indoor air pollution in any home. These include combustion sources such as oil, gas, kerosene, coal, wood, and tobacco products; building materials and furnishings as diverse as deteriorated, asbestos-containing insulation, wet or damp carpet, and cabinetry or furniture made of certain pressed wood products; products for household cleaning and maintenance, personal care, or hobbies; central heating and cooling systems and humidification devices; and outdoor sources such as radon, pesticides, and outdoor air pollution.

    2) Keep pollen from sneaking in

    People are surprised that Arizona has plants that release pollen.

    Pollen can sneak into your home through your:

    • Shoes– Leave your shoes at the door so you don’t track it in.
    • Hair– Wash your hair at night so it does not get on your pillows.
    • Pets– Pollen clings to pets’ fur. If you have pets that play outdoors, brush and wash them often.

    3) Get a few “Bedroom Plants”

    NASA found that several plants can purify your home’s air. One that stands out is the Snake Plant (also called Mother-in-Law’s Tongue). It can absorb several toxic airborne pollutants like:

    • Formaldehyde (found in particleboard used for shelving)
    • Trichloroethylene (found in spot removers and rug-cleaning fluids)
    • Xylene (found in paints, rust preventers, and permanent magic markers)
    • Toluene (found in some personal care products, adhesives, and tobacco smoke)
    • Benzene (found in plastics, dyes and detergents)

    Not only that, but the Snake Plant can convert carbon dioxide into oxygen—even at night when most plants stop producing oxygen.

    That extra oxygen can help you sleep better, especially if you have sleep apnea. Many homeowners place this hard-to-kill plant next to their bed.

    That’s why some call it the Bedroom Plant.

    4) Install an air cleaner

    Your home’s heating and cooling system is always circulating the air in your entire home.
    So if airborne pollutants and pollen get into your home, they are also spread throughout your home.
    Your typical fiberglass air filter do not remove these pollutants since they’re designed to only catch larger particles that can hurt the heating/cooling system.

    That’s why we suggest installing an air cleaner. An air cleaner is basically a super powerful air filter that’s installed next to your heating/cooling system. It can filter out finer particles that agitate asthma and allergies.

    For more household air cleaning suggestions, call our offices at 623-584-3762. One of our expert technicians will be happy to assist you.

    Air Cleaners and How They Work

    Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

    Low indoor air quality poses a major health threat in the U.S. today, especially since Americans spend approximately 85% of their time indoors. One of the best solutions for improved indoor air quality is to ventilate a house with open windows and doors for a few hours. However, this is not always an option, especially in a city like Phoenix, Glendale, Tempe or Scottsdale, which often experiences blistering hot days. Letting this much heat enter your home also puts tremendous strain on your AC.

    However, there are methods to improve your indoor air quality with upgrades to your HVAC system. At Cool Touch, we recommend our customers look into installing air cleaners into their ductwork. These devices filter the air passing from your air conditioner (and heater) to remove the contaminants that may enter it, such as dirt, dust, pollen, dander, bacteria, and residue from construction. There are two main types of air cleaners, and we’ll go over how they work. Call the pro’s at Cool Touch (623-584-3762) for more information about air cleaners in Maricopa County.

    Mechanical Filters

    The basic air cleaner catches particles in a filter. The most common type of filter is the HEPA filter, which is composed of a mat of randomly arranged fibers, usually made of fiberglass strands between 0.5 and 2.0 microns. These filters do not work like strainers however, where some particles are stopped while others are allowed to flow through. The HEPA filters instead catch even smaller particles, down to 0.3 microns, through a process where particles that pass within one radius of a fiber will adhere to it. Although HEPA filters can stop most physical particles from passing through, they are not effective at stopping gas and odor molecules.

    Electronic Filters

    The next level up from mechanical filters are the electronic filters, which can catch particles down to 0.1 microns and can affect smoke, gas, and even bacteria that would otherwise escape a mechanical filter. Electronic filters work through static charges. The fibers of an electronic filter generate a strong static charge as air passes through them. This positively charges the particles in the air, and when those particles pass through a layer in the filter with negatively charged fibers, they are drawn toward them and trapped.

    Find The Right Filter

    Which type of filter should you have installed? It depends on the sort of contaminants in your home (and there’s certainly nothing preventing you from having both installed). Call an indoor air quality specialist from Cool Touch AC & Heating to see what sort of air cleaners will provide the most benefit for your home, and then rely on our team to properly install them. Make us your top choice for improving your indoor air quality for Phoenix,AZ and the entire East and West Valley.

    How Dirty Ducts Affect Your Homes Air Quality

    Saturday, February 15th, 2014

    Modern gas furnaces depend on a system of ducts to distribute hot air throughout your home. Over time, dust and debris can easily build up inside those ducts. We live in a very dusty part of the country here in Phoenix, and over time that can create severe problems with the quality of your indoor air.  Dirty ducts can affect your furnace’s ability to heat the household, making it work harder to do its job.   If you need duct cleaning in Phoenix, Peoria, Glendale, Goodyear, Tempe, Chandler or Scottsdale, give Cool Touch a call today.

    dirty air ducts

    dirty air ducts

    First, air flow through the ducts can be restricted if the build-up gets high enough. Reduced air flow means that the heated air isn’t circulated through your home as quickly as it could be, slowing the heating process and forcing your system to work harder to get to the temperatures you need it to be. That means higher monthly heating bills as well as increased wear and tear on the components.

    Dirty air ducts can also lead to clogged air filters, which can cause your heating system to heat less effectively. Really dirty filters can restrict air flow so much your furnace will shut down to prevent overheating! If you have to change your furnace filters often because they keep getting clogged, its a good sign you need your ducts cleaned.

    Furthermore, dust and dirt can lead to poor air quality. This can worsen allergies and increase irritation to the nose and throat, which you certainly don’t want to have to make any unnecessary trips to the doctors.
