Why Tune-Up Your AC?

Summers here average in the steamy mid-90s. Ouch. When the summer temperatures rise in Chino Valley, it’s important that your cooling system is working optimally. It’s proven that regular tune-ups of your AC unit will maintain it right near its original, working efficiency. With fewer repairs and maintenance work needed, you will recover your annual tune-up costs almost instantly. Regularly scheduled AC tune-ups can also prevent major air conditioning breakdowns. Through inspections, your thorough AC technician can prevent a compressor from burning out by repairing a refrigerant leak. Much like an automobile tune-up, it’s much more affordable to replace or fix a small part than to replace a major system component later. Neglecting regular maintenance, which includes tune-ups, can void your product warranty. Many AC units come with a limited warranty from the manufacturer and require you to keep your AC maintained by a certified technician. If your warranty is broken, you may have difficulty obtaining replacement parts.

5 Summer Prep Tips for AC

and our team of HVAC professionals is committed to serving the people of . If your home has an HVAC system, you know it has the potential to cost you a lot of money. There are simple, common-sense ways you can make sure your AC will keep you and your family cool this summer without racking up massive electric bills. 1) Make sure your HVAC system is cooling at its maximum efficiency. Look at the overall condition of your wiring. Check to make sure the condenser’s refrigerant connections and evaporator are in good condition. One thing you can do to measure if your AC is working at its best is to compare the temperature of the air blowing out of the vent to the temperature of the air flowing back to the return air vent. Ideally, there should be a difference of around 15 to 18 degrees between the two. A larger difference could be a sign of a clogged air filter; a smaller difference could indicate you’re low on Freon. 2) Check your air filter every 30 to 60 days, depending on how often the system is in use. This is the equivalent of checking your car’s oil on...

Repair Or Replace? We Can Help

If you’re looking for heating repair service, Cottonwood Arizona boasts one of the best companies in the State ! Yes, that’s us, Comfort Systems Inc. Did you know that the average American family spends around $2000 a year in fuel bills? If you are on a tight budget, that represents a lot of money. Imagine being able to take a nice percentage of that out of your annual spending. That would make things easier all around, wouldn’t it? If you have an older HVAC system, you are literally burning money. New systems have Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratings (SEER) that older systems simply don’t have. That means that new systems are very miserly with the amount of fuel they use, saving you big bucks over the years. Of course, it may be that you have maintained your HVAC well during its life, and if it’s less than ten years old (if you’re a heavy user) or fifteen years old (if you’re a lighter user) then it could still give you good service – even up to twenty years more. However, realistically, older systems do cost more to run, and they are much less reliable. Repairs and replacement parts are going to...

Winter-proofing Your Home

When it comes to heating in Cottonwood Arizona, TDK Comfort Systems are the professionals you know and trust. We want all of our customers to stay comfortable throughout all seasons while also saving money. Here are a few easy tips to keep your home toasty and your wallet full this winter: Ditch the draft. Small air leaks are one of the leading causes of wasted heating energy. Door thresholds are a major source of lost hot air. If you can see air from outside coming in from underneath your door, you are losing heat. If your threshold has screws, you can use them to raise it up using a screwdriver. If not, you can buy a product designed to slide underneath your door or you can even use a rolled up towel. You are also going to want to replace any old, worn out weather stripping around your doors or windows.  Finally, use silicone caulk or insulation foam to seal any holes that lead to the outside of your home. Seal your windows and arcadia doors. You lose a lot of heat through your glass. Purchase a sealing film for a few dollars at Home Depot or Ace. The film will...

How to Fix Your Home to Add Value

Whether you are living in a home that needs some fixing up, are looking to purchase a home that needs some work, or are already in the process of renovating a home, things can quickly become a little overwhelming. Rather than becoming caught up on a lot of costly repairs or updates that may or may not add value to the home, consider focusing on a few key areas that are proven to add value and entice buyers if that is your end goal: Paint it. Neutral paint like a light tan throughout the home, with a crisp white ceiling will make a home appealing to most and will lighten up a space. Make sure the appliances are new and up to date. A beautiful kitchen with an old black and white coil top stove can be a red flag for potential buyers and an eyesore for owners. Save money by painting cabinetry and replacing hardware, while also updating appliances. This also applies to HVAC units. If the heater and air conditioner are in good shape, just have them serviced and maintained by a trusted company like TDK Comfort Systems, the experts in all Cottonwood HVAC needs.
