Heating Tip: Improving Your Heater’s Performance

Monday, January 14th, 2013

If you’re like most people, you would love to reduce the amount of energy that your home uses. Whatever your reasons are for that, focusing your efforts on your heating system this winter is a great way to potentially reduce the amount of energy that you use heating your home. At Cool Touch, we love helping our customers make their homes more efficient. We wanted to put together a quick list of some of the ways that we can help you get the most out of heating system this winter. Contact Cool Touch today to speak to one of our Surprise heating experts if you have any questions about heating performance and improving the efficiency of your home.

Regular Heating Maintenance in Surprise

One of the best ways to make sure your heating system works well is to get it regularly maintained by a professional Surprise, AZ heating contractor. There are a number of very important benefits to this.

  • Reduced repairs – When you have a trained heating technician inspecting your heating system regularly, they can find small issues before they turn into larger, more costly repairs. This is a great way to keep your heating system working well and to potentially avoid expensive repairs.
  • Improved efficiency – Over time, your heating system will start to develop small problems that will make it work harder and lower its efficiency. With regular inspections, cleaning and replacements, your heating system can maintain its efficiency.
  • Extended life – We’ve replaced countless heating systems that were destroyed by small problems that never got fixed. With regular heating maintenance, your technician can fix those problems before they break your heater permanently.

The Ductwork

The ductwork in your home is incredibly important to the proper operation of your heating system. Once the heated air leaves your furnace or heat pump, it has to travel through an extensive network of ducts. During that travel, if your ducts have holes or cracks in them, that heated air can get leaked to the outside and wasted. Having your ducts regularly inspected, cleaned and maintained is a great way to keep them working well.

If you’re interested in making sure that your heating system is working well, call the experts at Cool Touch. We provide complete heating installation and repair in Surprise, AZ for many different types and brands of heating systems. Call us today!

How to Improve Indoor Air Quality Using Your Central AC

Monday, October 1st, 2012

The air quality in your Phoenix home is impacted by many things, and there are many ways to try and improve it. One such way is by servicing and making some modifications to your central AC. Because your air conditioning system is at the center of air circulating through the living spaces of your home, it’s in the ideal place to target and remove all types of contaminants before they reach the rooms of your home.

Keep Up with Maintenance

One of the best ways to make sure your air conditioning system is not contributing to poor indoor air quality in your home is to have it serviced regularly by a professional Phoenix AC technician. This type of service will ensure that all filters are cleaned and replaced and that no debris has accumulated in various areas of your system from which it can reenter your indoor air circulation.

Upgrade Air Filters

In addition to preventing your central AC from worsening your indoor air quality, you can actually use it to remove more contaminants by upgrading the air filter from the stock version that came with the system to a higher rated product. This simple exchange and allow your air conditioning system to remove many more of the contaminants that pass through it every day, and that means those contaminants won’t be finding their way into your indoor air.

For more tips on how to improve the air quality in your Phoenix home, give Cool Touch Air Conditioning, Heating, Plumbing & Electrical a call today!

AC Guide: Air Conditioning Performance Issues

Monday, August 27th, 2012

When an air conditioning system begins to have performance issues, it can be due to a number of common causes.  Whether your AC has stopped cooling, simply will not turn on, or has water pooling around it, the Anthem AC professionals at Cool Touch can help you understand your air conditioning performance issues while also providing quick solutions.

AC Not Cooling

An air conditioner that isn’t cooling can indicate a couple of key problems.  If there is not enough refrigerant,  the AC will stop cooling.  If there is debris causing reduced airflow anywhere in the AC, including clogged air filters, dirty condenser coils, or dirty evaporator coils, it can cause your AC to work much less effectively.

AC Doesn’t Turn On

It could be a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker that shut power off to the AC.  It could also be a drainage problem – if the drain pan got too full, it triggers an automatic shut off so that a water leak does not occur.  It could also be a broken thermostat which needs to be replaced.

Water Pooling Around Air Conditioner

When water pools around the actual air conditioner unit, there could be a drainage clog.  It could also be a condensate drain tube leak, which would mean a tube replacement.  There could also be ice buildup on coils that has defrosted and melted, causing water to pool around the AC.  If this is the case, the cause of the ice buildup should be determined to prevent the problem from reoccurring.

No matter what your particular air conditioning performance issue happens to be, Cool Touch has a qualified team of Anthem AC technicians that can help. Call us today!

Electrical Question: Should I Upgrade My Fuse Box?

Monday, July 9th, 2012

If you’re wondering whether to upgrade your Scottsdale home’s old fuse box, the answer is probably yes. All electricity entering your home passes through this box. The electricity is divvied up to all of your appliances and electronics from this point. That’s a lot going on in one little space, and a lot of potential for something to go wrong.

If you have an older home and the electrical system has not been updated in years, it is possible that your existing electrical system, while functional, is not up to code. Upgrading your old fuse box is an important improvement in the safety of your home’s electrical system. The most important information in deciding whether or not to upgrade your home’s fuse box is to make sure that you understand how it works.

The fuse box is the panel in your home where circuits are completed by little strips of metal. The small plastic capsules containing the strip of metal constitute the fuse. This fuse connects the circuits in your Scottsdale electrical system and allows electricity to run through them. In the event of a surge in which unsafe levels of electricity are flowing through your system the fuse will blow, and the circuit is broken. This ensures that your wiring is not overloaded with potentially dangerous levels of electricity.

A sure sign that your fuse box is not operating properly is an increase in blown fuses. If your fuses seem to go more often than they used to, call a qualified electrician to inspect your box. It may require an upgrade. Other signs of an unsafe fuse box include rust, scorch marks, corrosion of wires or components or simple old age. If you have any reason at all to question the integrity of the fuse box in your home, do not hesitate to call for a professional evaluation. This is a matter of personal safety.

If it is decided that your fuse box needs an upgrade, consider the advantages and disadvantages of both fuse boxes and modern circuit breakers. Fuses tend to react to overloads very quickly, which can mean better protection to sensitive electronics. However, this can be inconvenient when in a circuit prone to frequent surges that blow the fuse. Circuit breakers make it easy to locate which switch has tripped, and they reset with the simple flip of a switch. However, they do not register surges as quickly as fuses.

The best way to decide what is right for your home’s electrical system is with the help of a Scottsdale  electrical professional. Call Cool Touch today with any questions you have. We’ll help make the decisions that are right for your home’s electrical system.
