Spring Cleaning and Your HVAC System in Buckeye

Monday, May 14th, 2012

If you are working on cleaning your home for spring, don’t forget your heating and air conditioning system in Buckeye. If you are turning your furnace off, you should change the air filter so it is ready to go next heating season. It is also important to check your air conditioner’s filter, which needs to be clean to ensure efficient operation. A dirty AC filter can reduce air flow, which can not only waste energy but possibly cause ice to build up on your coils.

While you are checking over your AC equipment, it’s a good idea to schedule an annual air conditioning maintenance visit with your HVAC contractor. One of the many things they will do is clean your AC, including the evaporator and condenser coils, which will help your unit maintain its energy efficiency. Since you are cleaning the rest of your home anyway, it’s a good idea to get your air conditioner in peak shape at the same time. If you don’t know how to change your AC’s air filter, ask your maintenance technician to show you. You should also determine how often you should change your air filter, which can depend on the amount of dust in your home, the number of pets you have, and the type of air filter you use.

Other important spring cleaning tasks include changing the filter in your vacuum, which can help maintain indoor air quality, and changing your water filter. Whether you have a whole house water filter or a Brita pitcher, the filters need to be replaced on a regular basis to keep them working effectively. If you have an air cleaning system, it’s probably a good idea to replace those filters as well, and check to make sure you don’t need UV germicidal light bulb replacement. While each of these steps seems simple, it they can add up to a healthier, more efficient house.

2012 15th Annual $1 Million Challenge To Fight Hunger

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Cool Touch Air Conditioning, Heating, Plumbing and Electrical has partnered up with All Faith Community Services in the 15th Annual $1 Million Challenge to Fight Hunger! If you are interested in participating in this critical effort, please see details on the program and where to donate below.

From All Faith Community Services:

For the 15th consecutive year, Alan Shawn Feinstein will divide $1 million among hunger fighting agencies nationwide using it to help them raise food and funds to fill their pantries during the months of March and April.

All Faith has been participating in this challenge the last three years and we are again asking for the support from the community to help us fill our pantries and prepare for the hard summer months ahead.  Whatever you donate, food or funds, Mr. Feinstein will add to our collection.  Last year we pulled in over 3000 pounds of food and over $700.00 came to us.  We believe we can double this amount and we need your help.

As you may well be aware during the summer month’s families rely very heavily on the food bank to help supplement their food needs.  School is out and kids who normally receive free and reduced lunch and breakfast are at home and are food insecure.  This means that they are missing at least one meal if not more and parents are struggling financially to provide good food.  One in four children in Arizona goes hungry every day.  More than half of our schools have 60% or more of the students who qualify for free and reduced lunches.

We are challenging every church, school, business and organization to get on board and have a food drive or make a donation during the months of March and April and be a partner in the most successful ongoing effort ever to fight hunger; that is something we can take pride in.

To participate in holding a food drive or to make a contribution please contact Cassie Wilkins at 623-386-3513 or you can go on line to our website www.afcsaz.com and donate or go to our “How You Can Help” tab then hit on the “Let’s Have a Food Drive” and fill out the information.  Monetary donations are tax deductible and can be mailed to 214 S. 5th Street…Buckeye, AZ  85326 and we will mail you a receipt.

We thank you in advance for your support.
