Packaged air conditioning units are something you may not recognize when you first hear the term—but you are familiar with them, because they are the most common way to provide cooling to commercial spaces. When you see HVAC units located on the top of a building, you’re looking at packaged units.

When it comes to air conditioning in Surprise, AZ, most homes have split air conditioning units: an outdoor condenser which connects through a line set to an interior evaporator unit an air handler that sends cooled air into the ducts of the ventilation system. Packaged units put all the components (except the ductwork to the rooms) outside. The packaged AC contains the compressor, the condenser coil and evaporator coil, and fans in one cabinet, and it draws air from the house through one set of ducts and sends the cooled air back into the house through another set.

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.
