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.
With March coming around the corner its time to offer our yearly March Madness sale. Last year we have over 20 people save $500 or more on complete installs.

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.
Trane ductless systems are ideal for spaces that are not part of the central heating or cooling system. With a Trane ductless system you have the ability to customize your system to provide efficient, reliable, heating or cooling zones for any room in your home.
Here is a Trane 18 seer mini split install that we did for a customer that wanted to keep his garage cool.
The Trane indoor unit is very clean and easy to mount. The air curtains can be adjusted to different movable settings.
The Trane mini split condenser is super quite and at 18 seer it will cost very little to operate.
TRANE INDOOR UNIT KEY BENEFITS
Specially designed air vents efficiently reduce operating sound to provide quiet comfort.
Provides temporary high-speed operation to reach your desired temperature quickly.
Sleep mode function
Based on a set sleeping time, the temperature can automatically rise or fall to maintain comfort in the room while you sleep, saving energy in the process.
The fan runs when the unit is stopped to prevent bacteria from forming. The unique catechin filter made from an additive abstracted from natural green tea provides long-lasting sterilization and removes up to 95% of potentially harmful bacteria.
Air is pre-heated during heating operation to prevent blowing cold air directly to the room.
You set the time for the unit to operate automatically when you want.
Wireless remote control
Each indoor air unit comes with its own wireless remote control so you can easily control your system from anywhere in the room. The "I feel" function enables the system to sense temperature at the remote control, rather than a thermostat.
In case of power loss, the system will restart in the previous operation mode without the need to reset the system.
TRANE OUTDOOR UNIT KEY BENEFITS
New, strong hot-dip galvanized steel grill prevents damage and has no negative effect on airflow.
Automatic defrosting improves the system’s heating efficiency and helps you save power.
Blue fin durability
Special anti-corrosion treatment increases durability and ensures continued efficiency.
Twin rotary DC compressor
The brushless compressor provides better balance, lower power consumption and higher efficiency.
The compressor stops or delays operation if conflicts arise.

Trane has always been an industry leader in home comfort. Now, we’re setting a new standard for clean indoor air with the revolutionary Trane CleanEffects™, the world’s most effective whole-house air filtration system.
Today we got a call from a commercial property owner stating his a/c units were not blowing air. When were arrived and got on the roof we were shocked to see what had happened. 8 Carrier package heat pumps ranging in 5 to 6 tons were all missing the indoor coils. The cost of damage to this building was $35,000.
At last we finished the 8,200 sq ft custom house in North Scottsdale. Yaa!! This has been a long process starting with underground return duct and all new hard pipe supply duct. The best part about this install was installing the new TAM8 communicating air handler with the XL20i heat pump. I love the TAM8 air handler they are so easy to install and the wiring is easy to set up. The TAM7 is a good air handler to. The only difference is that the TAM8 is communicating and the TAM7 is non communicating. Other than that, there is no difference. We installed the new XL950 thermostat with the TAM8's and man do they look nice. There are so many features on the XL950 thermostat. We went over the top and set the thermostats up to call the office if there ever is a service issue.
Here is some key benefits about the TAM7 and TAM8 air handlers.
1- Unique Cabinet Design- Tough, double-wall construction with enclosed foam insulation. The cabinet is designed so less moisture and fewer dust particles are drawn in for garage,attics or crawl spaces.
2- All- Aluminum coil- More durable than conventional copper coils and has a longer life span.
3- Variable Speed Motor with Comfort-R Technology-Reduces operating noise while eliminating hot and cold spots. Regulates humidity for your comfort. Love this feature.
4- Electronic Expansion Valve Metering Device- Based on Tranes testing, this expansion valve is 400% more reliable than the standard expansion valves found in most air handlers.
5- No Leak Drain Pan- Made from rust resistant composites and built with a gradual slop. The drain pan is by far the best on today's market.
These two air handlers were located in the garage
Those were just a few benefits that the TAM7 and TAM8 offer. For more information about the product click the Trane air handler link on the side of the blog. Now on to the XL20i heat pump condensers. These systems are fantastic. We have had homeowners tell us there electricity bill drop $200-$300 dollars a month with the new XL20i installed. That seems hard to believe, but hey it could be true. The XL20i is a dual compressor system. A dual compressor works by using a smaller compressor that will operate most of the time for maximum efficiency,handing of to the large compressor when extra cooling is needed. The XL20i also has a comfort control board and charge assist. The charge assist is a cool feature for the installers or service tech, it basically charges the system to a proper charge eliminating overcharging or over charging the system. FYI most companies will say the XL20 is a 20 seer system when matched with a correct air handler. This my friends is false. The 2 ton will actually give you a higher seer rating than 20, but the 5 ton will only give you a 19.0 seer with a HSPF of 9.0.

We like to add returns in every room on a custom build.
