HVAC System Considerations Before You Make Your Decision
Your first consideration when deciding upon an HVAC system should be reliability – especially here in Arizona where temperatures can soar above 100 degrees throughout the summer.
Arizona is blessed with some of the finest winter weather in the United States. Up north, when the trees go bare and the winds of winter blow, wise snowbirds migrate to the Valley of the Sun to enjoy the shirt sleeves climate. However, long time Phoenix residents know that desert nights can get downright frosty. Every year, there’s a couple of cold stretches with below freezing temperatures and true winter weather that may last a few days, a week or longer. November is the best time to prepare your home for the cooler temperatures ahead.
Depending on when your home was built,
When it comes to heating and air conditioning in Arizona, there’s no doubt AC gets top billing. Air conditioning is crucial to comfortable living during the summer months in Phoenix. However, as fall approaches and cooler nights prevail, it might be a good idea to have your furnace inspected. Especially if it has been years since the last checkup. Many homeowners in the Southwest take the heat in their home for granted because furnaces are generally well built and reliable, often operating trouble free for years. Depending on when your home was constructed, your furnace may be decades old.
It has been another record-breaking summer in the Valley of the Sun. October is generally the first autumn month where temperatures begin to noticeably drop. This welcome relief from summer’s blistering heat is the first sign that cooler nights are just ahead. As you and your family prepare to finish out the year, you might consider fall as the perfect time to upgrade your HVAC system.
At this point in the year, your air conditioner has been running nonstop for six months. Air conditioners are built to take punishment, and most units perform admirably in the extreme Arizona climate.
When it comes to new HVAC systems, you have choices. In fact, we often get asked, “Which brand is best?” The fact is that there are many things to consider, but there are some clear considerations to weigh before investing in an air conditioner, heat pump or other HVAC product.
Your HVAC system is something you and your family rely on each and every day. You can’t take chances on a brand that isn’t known for quality. American Standard HVAC products are consistently ranked among the highest for reliability by consumers. This means more time being comfortable and less time dealing with service hassles.
There is a dramatic population shift underway in the United States which finds millions of Americans moving from the Northeast and the Midwest to the warmer climates in the South, Southwest and West. This snowbelt-to-sunbelt migration has fueled Arizona’s phenomenal growth over the last 15 years. As well, there are significant changes in the work world – the way people work, where they work and how Americans pursue their careers. According to the US Census Bureau, the number of people who work from home has more than doubled since 2000. Currently, over eight million people work from home and that means a lot of spare bedrooms,
With summer temperatures continuing to linger, most of us are still using our air conditioners. And, they’re at the greatest risk of a malfunction now because they’ve been running continuously for months and have suffered the effects of monsoon storms. As we approach the end of the hot season, it’s a good reminder that you don’t want to ignore symptoms of a malfunctioning air conditioner. One such problem is too much refrigerant – also called an overcharged air conditioner.
Too Much of a Good Thing
Air conditioners are installed with a set amount of refrigerant.
At this point in the year, most Arizonans experience cabin fever, having spent months inside to avoid the intense heat of the Arizona summer sun. Did you know Phoenix residents spend up to 90 percent of their time indoors? This year, there have been more 100 degree-plus days than ever before. Being inside to avoid the extreme temperatures means breathing indoor, air-conditioned air for many months in a row. It might be worth a few minutes of your time to consider making changes to improve the quality of the air you breathe indoors.
