What's Your Air Conditioning Comfort System Telling You?

Do you sense that your heating and air conditioning system is holding a piece of information you really need to know?  Well, it won’t take much detective work to figure that out – because what your system is telling you about the summer heat isn’t a secret.

You can pretty much guarantee that if you’ve got a well-maintained, fairly new energy-efficient home comfort system, it’s saying, “No problem. I’ve got this.” But if your heating and air conditioning system has been chugging through summer heats for a while, the message could be a bit different.

For example, if you can tell that your home comfort system is undergoing strain trying to keep up with rising temperatures, it could be giving clear signs that you need to make another plan for your home comfort this summer. Some of the signs you’ll see will be inconsistent comfort, more air conditioner repairs than ordinary, higher energy bills – and just an overall sense of uncertainty about whether it’s time to make a change.

Well, we’ve got some news that can help you through that uncertainty – and be very comfortable with whatever decision you make.  Give us a call, we can help you avoid those horrible air conditioning repairs this summer.

How Well Is Your Air Conditioning System Aging?

You don’t have to be an air conditioning professional to know whether your home comfort system is keeping you cool inside when the warm weather is surrounding you outside. At the most basic level, you turn on your air conditioner, and it works or it doesn’t. Or it doesn’t work as well as you’d like.

From there, the whys and wherefores of what’s happening with your HVAC system are the questions that service technicians will seek to answer.

Every appliance in your home will feel the effects of age. But when you take care of your appliances – especially the significant system that keeps you comfortable year-round – the aging process slows. With very great care, the aging process even reverses.

Air Conditioning Repair: Do Your Unit's Fins Look Fabulous?

Air Conditioning Repair Las Cruces New Mexico

When is the last time that you took a look at your air conditioner’s fins? No really, we’re actually serious. They are one of the important elements that an air conditioner needs to keep the cold air moving through your home or business. And unfortunately, they are one of the first items that can get damaged by seasonal activities. Just ask the neighbor whose HVAC unit was involved in a lawn mower hit and run or wayward baseball incident. He’ll tell you that we’re right. If you’ve never actually looked at the fins before and don’t know where to start, don’t worry. Our air conditioning repair pros know where the fins are located and can help put them back into great shape.

Here are the basics:

Essentially, an air conditioning system’s fins will be located in one of two areas. If they are compressor fins, they’ll be near the system’s compressor unit. On the other hand, if they’re evaporator fins, they’ll be situated near the system’s evaporator. Yes, it’s really that self-explanatory.

In most instances, the fins are made from a malleable metal and they come into frequent contact with airborne debris. So it’s not uncommon for them to get filthy or bend into a position that makes it nearly impossible for air to flow freely. Thus, our air conditioning repair team is frequently called in to either clean the fins or push them back into the correct position.

Such tasks are typically performed using tools of the air conditioning repair trade, like fin combs and brushes. The combs do the pushing and the brushes are used for cleaning. Depending on the situation, they may be used in conjunction with a garden hose or shop vac. And in some instances, it may be necessary to clean and lubricate other areas of the HVAC system shortly thereafter.

To set up an air conditioning repair service call to have your unit’s fins cleaned and restored to their original glory, please contact us at SoBellas Home Services today.

Announcing: The Most Accurate Weather Predictor in History Says

Announcing: The Most Accurate Weather Predictor in History Says

“Summer 2014 May Set ‘off-the-charts’ Heat Records”

 

After last winter, I hope you’re finally enjoying the warm summer sunshine in Las Cruces New Mexico.

 

As good as this weather feels now… there’s a big chance of UNREAL heat coming our way. No weather prediction is 100% accurate, but the one I’m about to quote has been the most accurate.

 

Over the past two-hundred twenty-one years, the Old Farmer’s Almanac has been one of THE most accurate weather predictors, bar none. So I take it VERY seriously when they say summer 2014 will deliver “above average temperatures for nearly every part of the United States.” (Translation: It’s going to be very hot.)

 

How to Really Beat the Heat. Make sure your cooling systems are in the best health possible now. Just like checking up on your car before a long road trip, your cooling equipment needs periodic maintenance (plus a couple of cooling ‘tricks’ that SoBellas techs can perform) to help it run like new. And by the way, it’s MUCH less expensive to prevent problems than to fix ‘em once they’re broken. (Yes, I’d make more money if you waited, but that’s not the goal here!)

 

The time to prepare is BEFORE the heat. If you wait until everyone else does, you’re almost certain to have to “wait it out” until someone can get to you; PLUS, you’ll pay full-tilt prices. NO ONE will be discounting during peak demand.

 

SoBellas Of Las Cruces Summer Cooling Checkup, Tune-Up and Repair Offer:  (Doing this now will help prevent cooling system breakdowns and avoid “energy bill sticker shock.”)

 

Here’s just SOME of what we do for only $129.00:

•             Complete cleaning – dirt is the #1 cause of system failure.

•             Test air flow and check and recharge refrigerant.

•             Make sure the entire system is working properly and is tuned to manufacturer specifications.

•             PLUS… if any repairs are needed, we’ll make them right away AND chop 10% off the cost.

Call us today at 575-636-2009  to make your appointment. Don’t wait; because we can handle only a limited number of customers for this specially priced offer.

Thank Goodness Summer Is Finally Here!

(I was beginning to wonder.) However –

 

Are you 100% sure your cooling system will make it through another summer? Here’s a way to eliminate the risk…

 

 

Since my business depends on the weather, we pay lots of attention to weather predictions. I’m no alarmist, but summer 2014 is being widely reported to have far higher than normal temperatures.

 

So cooling systems that “got by” last season are likely doomed. And we get the bulk of our calls when systems are straining the hardest to keep up with the heat. These breakdowns often occur on THE hottest days. Believe me, this isn’t good or bad luck; it’s fact.

 

Why I’m writing now. Last summer, I saved my customers tons of money and aggravation by offering new air conditioning systems at low “off-season” prices. This calculated risk allowed me to replace worn-out equipment fast and at lower prices than other contractors. It’s about being prepared. So,

 

This summer we’re doing it again. SoBellas Air Conditioning and Heating has access to several sets of state-of-the-art, highly efficient cooling equipment at DISCOUNTS up to 22%. If you wait until yours breaks, we may not have any left at these prices.

 

However, since neither of us knows IF you’ll need new cooling equipment this summer, here’s how you can protect yourself no matter what:

 

You can get a Summer Cooling System and Energy Analysis AT NO CHARGE.

 

This analysis will tell us whether your system needs a simple adjustment, tune-up or repair. In some cases, maybe a replacement makes sense, but there’s no reason to jump in too deep yet. So,

 

Either way you win. If your system just needs a tune-up or repair, we’ll take care of that for you AND give you a 10% discount on the work. And if you decide new equipment is right, then you’ve got a nice discount on that too.

 

Call us at 800-617-6235 to make sure we get you on the books for the Free Summer Cooling System and Energy Analysis.

 

 

Whoops! Forgot to mention; every system we install comes with a full 5-year warranty. That’s worth another several hundred dollars! Maybe the heat is getting to me already! Call 800-617-6235 today.

Home A/C Repair Service in Las Cruces Can Help with Noise Complaints

Home A/C Repair Service Las Cruces New Mexico

It’s a freight train. It’s a plane. No, that awful racket is coming from your Las Cruces home’s air conditioner. Now what? The good news is our SoBellas home A/C repair service Las Cruces team knows just how to decrease the din so your family and the rest of the neighborhood don’t have to walk around with ear plugs in place.

There are various reasons why a home's A/C might start to make enough noise to rouse the local zombies. As such, our home A/C repair service pros in Las Cruces typically start out by narrowing down the source of the racket. It could be that your home air conditioner’s compressor or fans have gone awry and need repair or replacement. When that happens, they can generate a lot of direct and indirect noise.

If a replacement fan or compressor is needed, we’d suggest selecting new models that are designed run a lot quieter than their older counterparts. For example, older model air conditioners tend to produce 55 to 70 decibels of noise. Newer ones typically generally emit 45 decibels or less. However, the noise ranges do vary. So it’s best to ask our Las Cruces New Mexico A/C repair team for suggestions or do some shopping around on your own.

Speaking of shopping for a new cooling system, you might want to skip the traditional home A/C units entirely and go with a swamp cooler instead. They tend to be extremely quiet by nature. Therefore, they may prove to be the best solution for your home.

We should also mention that in other situations, the awful noise may be caused by vibrations. When that happens, our home A/C repair service team may recommend the use of sound blankets, acoustical panels, concrete pads or other items that are used to create sound barriers. Changing the location of the home’s A/C unit or altering the landscape may help to decrease or deflect the noise away from other areas too.

To speak with our SoBellas home A/C repair team in Las Cruces New Mexico about the previously mentioned noise solutions in more depth, please call 575-636-2009 or contact us online.

Get ready for Summer!

Don’t let air conditioning repair spring up on you

Spring is officially in the air and Texans know that the sweltering heat is well on its way.

In preparation, Better Business Bureau suggests homeowners and businesses get their air conditioning (AC) units checked by a trustworthy professional to make sure it’s in good working order.

Don’t get burned by hiring the wrong service company. Nationally, BBB received nearly 1,000 complaints against residential air conditioning service companies in 2013. Complaints against AC service contractors often allege problems with the final price or payment process, as well as complaints that the service was ineffective.

If you’re due for an upgrade, spending a little money on improvements can save you a lot over time.  Air sealing is one of the quickest ways to cut your heating and cooling costs. Also, you can visit the Energy Saver website for DIY Savings Projects that provide step-by-step instructions on how to weatherstrip your windows and seal air leaks with caulk.

There is a growing industry of professionals who are qualified to make recommendations to homeowners on how to improve the overall energy efficiency of their homes. Be sure to use a certified energy auditor.

According to Energy.gov, turning your thermostat back from its normal setting by seven to 10 degrees for eight hours a day can save you as much as 10 percent a year on heating and cooling costs. Small changes have big results.

Unplug devices that aren’t being used

Keep air vents open

Replace traditional bulbs

Turn off lights when you leave

Change the filter

Install a programmable thermostat

Use fans

Plug leaks

BBB offers this advice when hiring a trustworthy air conditioning contractor:

• Consult your owner’s manual. Before doing anything, check the warranty on your current air conditioning unit to determine whether any tune-ups, repairs or replacements may be covered.

• Hire a professional to maintain your heating and cooling system. Arrange for annual maintenance with a qualified technician. This includes checking the airflow over the coil, testing for the correct fluid (refrigerant) level, checking the combustion process and ensuring proper air-flow to each room.

• Research the company. Visit bbb.org for the BBB Business Review of any air conditioning service or energy auditor you plan to hire to learn details about the company, like its history of complaints.

• Check licensing.  The Department of Licensing and Regulation requires a license for heating, ventilation and air conditioning technicians and electricians. Ask to see a copy of the license before work starts.

• Compare prices. Get at least three estimates in writing. All bids should provide a full description of the services provided and the materials used.
