When was the last time you had your system maintenance? This homeowner told us 5 years and we believe him!

Today we got a phone call from a new customers that wanted a maintenance done on 2 heat pump split systems.  They let us know over the phone that the systems have never been maintenance and might need to be cleaned.  The pictures below show what can happen if you don't have your systems check at least once every year. 

We got to the house and did a quick walk-through.  As we were walking up the stairs we noticed that the outside of the return grill was covered in dust.  As we opened the return grill we were amazed to see how bad the filters were.  

We asked the homeowner when the last time he changed the filters were and he said, I never new there were filters in that grill. We ask him when they moved in the house and he replied, 5 years.  WOW 5 years.  We asked how much his a/c bill was in the summer and he said $675.  Again WOW.  This homeowner's bill in the summer should be no more than $400.  

 After replacing the filters we decided to go outback to see were the condensers were.  As we turned the corner I was stunned at what I saw.  Yes there are 2 condenser next to me. The homeowner said he didn't like the way the condensers looked and that the weeds make the systems less noisy. For a minute we though he was series, but he laughed and said he was just lazy.

 3 hrs later we were finally done with the maintenance.  We changed the filters in the house, cleaned all the weeds away from the condensers, cleaned both indoor and outdoor coils that were covered with hardened dust and checked system operation.  The homeowner was amazed on how much air was coming out of the registers.  The homeowner can finally be comfortable in the house and start saving money on there a/c bills

Check your filters because summer is coming!  Every summer we get tons of calls for systems not cooling and lack of air flow from vents.  4 out of 5 times the issue is a dirty filter or dirty coils.  Having you indoor and outdoor coils cleaned is a great way to maximize system efficiency and prevent break downs.  We use a environmental green coil cleaning product that cleans the coil and adds a protective seal after the chemical is washed off.

This week we installed a Tam 4 air handler with a XR13 seer heat pump condenser.  This system was  installed in a warehouse building that had no previous heating are cooling.  The building was located right next to Chandler city hall and the city would not approve installing a package unit on the roof.  The only option was to install the air handler on a cast iron stand.  We also installed 10 kw secondary heat strips to help with the cold mornings.

We like to go above and beyond when install HVAC equipment.  On the Trane air handlers we paint the PVC drain lines and copper refrigeration lines black.  This gives the system install a clean finish.
