Central Heat and Air Replacement and/or Purchase in Pasadena

11 comments

Although much of the focus of going Green is on solar panels, electric cars, and bicycling, there’s actually a lot you can do at home to reduce your carbon footprint while saving hundreds on energy bills.

A green choice can almost be made during the purchasing stage of a central heater and a/c. Newer central air conditioners and heating system are naturally more efficient, as more companies realize that people are becoming more conscious of their energy consumption. In particular, if you are in the market for a new HVAC, look for the energy star mark. These really are indicative of a more energy efficient unit. A slightly higher cost will certainly be offset by the hundreds of dollars you will save on home energy bills, in the long run.

Last but not least, here are some out-of-the-box ideas on how to reduce energy consumption, save money on energy bills, and help the planet all at once:

  1. Make sure your air conditioning condenser is located in a shady spot and has room to dispose of the heated air it removes from your house. Don’t crowd it with shrubs or anything else.
  2. Plant shade trees and shrubs around your house to help reduce the heat of the sun, especially on the west and south sides. This can reduce your cooling costs by up to 30%.
  3. Close drapes on the sunny side of your house.
  4. Install energy efficient ceiling fans and run them on hot days. If it’s just a little too warm for comfort, use the ceiling fan without air conditioning. If it’s hot enough to require air conditioning, using the ceiling fans at the same time allows you to raise the temperature setting by five degrees, which will reduce your costs. Use the ceiling fan only when you’re in the room, because running the fan doesn’t actually lower the temperature. The moving air increases the amount of evaporation from your skin and helps cool you off.
  5. Make sure the cooled air coming from your air conditioning vents is not obstructed by furniture or draperies.

central air conditioning troubleshooting Long Beach

In almost any air conditioner, there are several main parts:

  1. blower fan
  2. condensor coil
  3. compressor
  4. evaporator coil
  5. filter

If your air conditioner is not working properly, here’s a list of causes that will make doing your own troubleshooting less overwhelming.

  1. If the unit doesn’t work at all; doesn’t turn on, it could be a motor overload or a faulty switch
  2. If it’s not cooling properly, but still works, it could mean a dirty filter, dirty coils, or that the unit is leaking coolant (e.g., freon).
  3. If your a/c turns on and off repeatedly, it could mean dirty coils and/or a dirty filter

Try to be as cautious and informed as possible. Some air conditioners are more D.I.Y-friendly than others. Do a bit of research online before you proceed. Just remember: it’s not always best to roll up your sleeves, and assume all of the responsibility for fixing it. It’s OK to ask for help!

Refrigerator Repair Glendale

The refrigerator is often the appliance we take for granted most often. It could be because they don’t break down as often as other things at home, which is a good thing. However, when they do, it’s a real inconvenience, to say the least. A lot of the food in our refrigerators cannot survive more than a day or 2 in room temperature. With food prices constantly going up, this could result in some heavy losses, if a refrigeration problem is left untreated. If your refrigerator is leaking, not cooling properly (freezer and/or fresh food section), or even making strange noises, try looking up the symptoms online to see what they might mean with your particular refrigerator brand. D.I.Y is becoming more popular, as people are more hard-pressed for solutions on a budget. If you believe the problem requires a minor tweak, and you can do it yourself, that’s great! But definitely at least call an expert, just to be on the safe side. A bit of research on your side, and some professional advice could mean the difference between a few more years for your refrigerator, or replacement. It’s important to address the first sign of trouble. Whether it’s a GE, Amana, Electrolux Refrigeration, Jenn-Air Refrigeration, Kenmore, Kitchen-Aid Refrigerators, LG , Maytag , Samsung , Sub-Zero , Thermador , Viking , or a Whirlpool– it’s always best to turn to a refrigerator repair company that has experience repairing refrigerators of all brands, makes, and models. Sometimes you aren’t sure of the brand, or even exactly what the problem is; something may just seem off. That’s ok too. A good, professional appliance repair company should be glad to help over the phone. For one that does, try the number above.

Pasadena Air Conditioning

When it comes to air conditioning repair, one is inclined to turn to local air conditioning repair men and/or companies. This certainly has many advantages. Local companies that have been a part of a community from more than a decade have the trust of your friends and neighbors. They also tend to care more about building and maintaining customer relationships than national chains or franchised establishments. The temperature in Pasadena for the next 10 days is expected to be mostly sunny, in the high 60s. It is certainly a good sign that spring is here. The time is right to maintain, service, and/or repair your air conditioner– you don’t want to wait until it’s too hot, and repair companies are booked solid for weeks, to fix a small mechanical problem now. Waiting can certainly only make a small problem bigger. If you’re looking for a certified, qualified, licensed and insured central air conditioning repair company, look no further. Whether your home is a house, apartment, or condo, it will always be more comfortable with a properly working HVAC.

Refrigerator Los Angeles

With the scorching heat today,  I’m sure everyone is tempted to stick their head inside their refrigerator. During hot months, knowing your refrigerator is working properly is crucial for peace of mind, and the preservation of the food inside. Refrigerators have been known to stop working out of the blue, and those failures could be mechanical.  If your refrigerator is not cooling as well as it used to, leaking, or making strange noises, try looking up the symptoms online and what they might mean with your particular brand of refrigerator. If you want to stay on the safe side, call a technician to properly diagnose the problem, before it becomes a bigger one. Unfortunately, it’s almost never simply because of a freon leak. If a leak is suspected, it’s also important to address its source, and not simply recharge the unit with freon. That would be like refilling a bucket with a hole at the bottom. I hope this advice helps you make the right decision. Feel free to contact a professional with any additional questions. The info can be found on this site.

Appliance Purchase Los Angeles

5 comments

Sometimes, places you would not expect sell appliances– such as HVAC and/or appliance repair companies. Purchasing an appliance from such a company has its pros and cons. The price could sometimes be a little higher than a conventional big retailer, like Sears or Best Buy. An HVAC and/or appliance repair company is also more likely to have good, used units in stock. Places like Sears and Best Buy often sell appliances with extra and expensive warranties. Often, if an appliance breaks down, it takes weeks to send a repairman come, since they’re so backlogged. Weighing these pros and cons will ensure you make a decision that works for you on every level.

Whether to repair or replace an appliance can be a nagging question. On the one hand, you’re worried your appliance is nearing the end of its shelf-life. Sinking money into it now, with the fear that it would have to be replaced anyway, a month down the line. At the same time, the average repair cost could be only a fraction of entirely replacing the appliance, especially if it’s a stainless steel, and/or high brand appliance. With such concerns in mind, it helps to remember that the risk of making a bad decision can be averted if the repair company you turn to for help, provides an adequate warranty. Best case scenario: your appliance is fixed and you save a lot of money by not having to replace it. Worst case scenario: you learn a bit about the appliance from a technician, learn that replacement is the only option, and save time, money and trouble by not having to repair it multiple times.

This unexpectedly cold weather in the past week is a good reminder that we never know when exactly we’ll need our heater(s) working properly. Checking your heater once every few months is a good way to detect a small problem before it becomes a big one. If it’s a gas heater, be sure to turn off the pilot light before you check for any potential symptoms. If the pilot light is constantly on, this is a problem by itself. Be keenly aware of any irregular smells or sounds, but don’t tweak anything mechanical, as this could actually create a problem that wasn’t there before. (source: www.energysavers.gov)

Leave it to Los Angeles to have Seattle weather at the end of March. While we can enjoy the break from the scorching heat that’s sure to come, it’s also a perfect time to ensure our air conditioners are working properly. Most air conditioners break down when they have to work harder; when it’s hot and humid outside. By being proactive, and getting your air conditioner checked and/or maintained, you dramatically reduce the risk of having problems before it’s too late. And even if it doesn’t break down, you still save money on energy bills by maximizing your unit’s efficiency with a bit of maintenance (source: energysavers.gov).

Is Your Heater/Furnace Acting Up?

4 comments

You will most likely know if your heater/furnace has a problem, but here are a few warning signs: 

  • You aren’t getting any heat.

  • You suffer from headaches, dizziness and weakness.

  • Other pollutants in the air from natural gas furnaces are affecting your health

  • You smell natural gas

  • You get much higher than normal heating bills

If you suffer any of the health symptoms related to No. 2, you may have carbon monoxide poisoning and need to get out of your home immediately.  Since carbon monoxide is odorless, you won’t notice anything unusual in the air. However, breathing even low levels of carbon monoxide can cause fatigue and induce increased chest pains in people with chronic heart disease.  Furnace heaterThe quality of your indoor air is vital to your health. Other pollutants that may affect you if you have a natural gas furnace include nitrogen dioxide particles and sulfur dioxide.

If you experience headaches, dizziness, fatigue, water eyes or difficulty breathing and you have no heath issue that may be causing them, you should leave your home as soon as possible and call to have your furnace checked out. Note that people with chronic respiratory problems, cardiovascular illness or immune system disorders will be more severely affected by these pollutants. 

If you have a natural gas furnace and you can smell the gas, you have a potentially dangerous situation on your hands. Don’t light a match, turn on any appliances or use the telephone. Open the windows and leave the house immediately. You can call a service technician and/or 911 from a neighbor’s house or use a public telephone. Heating your home uses more energy than any other system and is generally 45 percent of your utility bill. If you find that this percentage is much higher, your furnace is likely not running as efficiently as it should. Make sure you clean or replace the filters on a monthly basis.   Depending on what kind of furnace you have, you may need to clean warm-air registers, baseboard heaters or radiators as well. Also, don’t leave ventilating fans in the bathroom or kitchen running any longer than necessary, as these suck out a tremendous amount of air. Finally, make sure no furniture is blocking any of the vents.  Your thermostat controls the amount of heat you want in your home. If you’re not getting any heat from your gas furnace, it may be that the pilot light is out. Otherwise, you might have a problem that needs to be taken care of by a professional. Computerized thermostats are now available that maintain the heating level in your home more evenly. 

With heating bills rising all the time, you may want to consider getting a new furnace. If your furnace is 15 years or older, you will save approximately 40 per cent by installing a new one.  

If you determine that you need a professional to fix your furnace and you live in the Los Angeles County area, you will want to go to www.chiefappliance.com for more information on what services are available. Chief Appliances also sells new furnaces.
