At Pitzer’s One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating of Mohave County, we’re naturally quite busy during the summer, when our customers’ AC systems are working hard and sometimes getting worn out. Why do you think we sometimes get busy in the winter, as well as in spring and fall? We’re always on call for problems that arise requiring our AC repair company expertise, no matter when the system is operating. Smart customers also call us for preventive care and maintenance during the “off-season,” when our team of skilled technicians comes to visit, perform a tune-up, and check for emerging repair needs. If we find there’s work to be done to bring your AC up to standards such as a fan motor replacement or fixing a small refrigerant leak, we’ll let you know. You can then schedule repairs at your convenience, and avoid surprise failures during the cooling season.
Summer days, and sometimes nights for that matter, put our air conditioning units to good use keeping homes in Mohave Valley, AZ cool and comfortable. It’s important that they be carefully serviced during the winter by our AC repair company to replace and adjust components and provide a general tune-up. A thorough cleaning is also important, to make sure that starting electrical components are reliable and to get the maximum efficiency from condenser and evaporator coils. There are a number of motors that need attention, in particular the fan motor in the condenser unit that helps with efficiency as well. Air handling motors and belts should be visually inspected and all motors can be tested electrically to see how far along in their service life they are. Though the air filter for your HVAC should be regularly replaced, typically monthly, we’ll check and replace it and provide any help you may need to keep up with it throughout the year.
A decent percentage of our AC repair company service calls come down to the air filter, starting with the wear and tear a clogged air filter can have on the air handling components. Airflow balance throughout the house can also be affected, and icing of the evaporator coils is often traced back to low airflow through the filter. That happens because the flow of warm air through the evaporator coil is needed to keep the condensate, the moisture from the air being cooled, from freezing onto the evaporator coils and blocking further airflow through them. We can source quality filters for you and show you the correct way to install them if you like!
Humidity management using a smart thermostat plus dehumidifier and humidifier components can take the edge off of humid days and especially, add more humidity during our many dry days to keep your home in the recommended 30 to 50 percent range. With dry air comes many airborne particles and indoors you also have pet dander, cleaning sprays, cooking odors, and many other contaminants. Indoor air is usually many times more polluted than outdoors! Wildfires from the west reach Mohave Valley, AZ, and contribute to indoor air quality issues. All these can be dealt with using HEPA filtration, air purifiers, and germicidal UV lamps. Our AC repair company experts can help with information about add-on features and install them for you during the winter season or throughout the year.
Our AC repair company provides air balancing services that ensure the even distribution of cool air in each room, checking duct pressures, airflow from vents, and free air intake. If you are experiencing areas of warmer or colder air as you cross a room, we can make adjustments based on our instrument readings to even out your cool airflow. You’ll find that evening out your home’s temperatures lets you relax and enjoy life as you move throughout your home.
How are your home’s HVAC ducts? Over time, even metal ductwork needs a few repairs to keep proper air pressure and flow throughout your home. Dampers may need servicing for reliable airflow adjustment, and ducts made of materials other than metal may be degrading and in need of attention or even replacement. What about all the dust, allergens, and other material that’s accumulated inside your ducts? A thorough duct cleaning by our AC repair company resets the duct surfaces.
If your AC system is currently cooling the entire house controlled by one thermostat, our AC repair company technicians can modify your ductwork to create zones with independent controls. This will allow you to set different temperatures and timing for cooling the bedrooms, living room, and family room for instance, putting your cooling where you’re spending time. You can also program smart thermostats to cool down bedrooms just before bedtime or to have more generous cooling on weekends when people are roaming throughout the house.
Winter is a great time to invest in new AC equipment such as new energy-saving variable speed compressor models. With moderate daily temperatures outdoors, you won’t miss having the AC for the short time it takes to make the changeover. You’ll happily start the new cooling season with equipment that saves on your monthly energy bill and is under warranty as well!
