Has Your Mesa Home Installed Air Conditioning Exceeded A Useful Lifespan

Installed Air conditioning MesaSurvey Reveals Performance-Deficiency As Primary Cause For Installed Air Conditioning Residential Replacement

In a recent survey of 492 HVAC contractors, researchers established a 12-14 year average replacement cycle for residential air conditioning systems. The study also showed that many homeowners opted to replace the existing system before the product reached end-of-life usefulness. In most cases the decision for early AC replacement came about due to a perception that the cooling capacity and cost of unit operation was in excess of the homeowner’s expectations (1).

End conclusion: The efficiency of AC system performance plays a major role in how homeowners evaluate the useful life of a residential air conditioning system.

Efficient Evaporator Air Flow: Key Factor In Arizona Air Conditioning Performance

According to the Energy Star central air conditioner overview report, reaping the full benefits of an Energy Star certified heating and cooling system also requires that you “take steps to optimize” the practical performance of the system (2). In other words: even when a homeowner installs a new energy-efficient central A/C, successfully achieving an increase in performance depends on the skill, knowledge and applied principles of the HVAC installation crew.

One might think that proper installed air conditioning comes with the turf. Alas, this may not reflect actual conditions. The FCC survey included field tests of 70 residential A/C systems in Arizona as well as field tests of 27 systems in central California. In both test cases, the performance of the examined units failed to meet the system manufacturer’s declared Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER). Of the 70 units tested in Arizona, the average performance deficiency came in at 40% lower than the EER rating for the given unit.

Primary cause for underperformance: Insufficient airflow across the evaporator coil.

Adequate Air Flow Critical To Efficient A/C EER Returns

Conventional air conditioning units perform two primary functions:

  • 1) Sensible Cooling… The effective process of cooling the air
  • 2) Latent Cooling… The effective process of removing moisture from the air.

Reliable residential installed air conditioning (IAC) performance is primarily dependent on a balance between moisture removal and sensible heat transfer. This can only be achieved when the unit functions with ample air flow across the evaporator coil. The technical aspects involved in A/C installation and management of air handler fan speed, load requirements and airflow control exceed the limits of this article. However defining the consequences of miss-applied system installation is simple:

  • If the airflow over the coil is too high, the system is compromised. Moisture removal falls short, and fan power gets elevated.
  • If the airflow is too low, reduced system cooling occurs, and the system EER falls short. Furthermore: Extreme hindrance of airflow can cause icing of the evaporator coil. Likewise: Continuous problems with icing can lead to refrigerant flood-back. End result may even include early failure of the system compressor.

The dry Arizona climate typically equates to a low latent/humidity factor. When a Mesa home A/C system is correctly installed, years of maximum-performance efficiency become readily possible. Furthermore, if a home system is not aged-out but is rather suffering from major installation problems, correcting the errors can effectively restore new life to an older air conditioning unit. In essence, if your new energy-efficient home air conditioning system is incorrectly installed, it may actually perform nearly as badly as your aged and inefficient replaced unit.

Tips From American Cooling and Heating For Avoiding Poor AC Performance

It may be that your failing home cooling system is merely the consequence of a poorly installed unit. Or perhaps, time has played a role in the lack of adequate system performance. External conditions can change, wherein new obstacles now hinder the airflow to your external condenser unit. Duct sealant can fail and cause air leaks. Even in-duct grime can be a problem. Before discounting the efficiency of your Mesa home air-conditioning system, consider the steps of proper AC installation as listed below. An American Cooling and Heating home AC checkup can answer all of your questions, and if a new unit becomes the preferred solution, ACH will ensure that your system is correctly and effectively installed.

The following list offers no specific order, but the principles for correctly installing or configuring an air conditioning system remain true even if the system is aged. When installing a new HVAC system, American Cooling and Heating air conditioning technicians:

  • Allow ample indoor room for installation and future system servicing
  • Before positioning condensing unit, consider the noisy factor on neighbors as well as home occupants
  • Install sufficient air return and cool air delivery registers
  • Position condensing unit in an area free of objects that can create hindrance to airflow
  • Position system thermostat(s) for most effective heating and cooling response to home conditions
  • Prior to system installation, apply reliable duct-sizing tactics
  • Properly insulate attic ducts
  • Provide an access path cleaning the evaporator coil via a door into the duct or the furnace
  • Use effective and product-recommended duct sealing components
  • Verify correct and exact refrigerant charge
  • Verify that unit meets manufacturer-specified airflow rate
  • When possible, install ductwork inside the region of air-conditioned space.

Basic Air Conditioning Troubleshooting, A Mesa Home AC Tip Sheet

air conditioning troubleshootingSteps Your Tech May Take When Your Mesa Home AC Fails to Cool Properly

Troubleshooting a Mesa home air conditioning unit often exceeds the technical know-how of the average homeowner. Yet knowing a bit about the process can help you to better understand the reasons behind the A/C troubleshoot steps as performed by your local HVAC service tech. This doesn’t mean that you should annoy the tech with an over-the-shoulder gawking. However, many mechanical professionals tend to take a bit of pride in helping the homeowner better understand the basics of air conditioning troubleshooting.

Different Stages of HVAC Troubleshooting

When a tech arrives on site, they sometimes find a system that is either dead or acting dead. This means the tech will be checking breakers, disconnects, fuses, and other power-related heating and cooling system problems. Yet more often than not, “dead cooling” does not include a dead power source.

In this lesson on basic A/C troubleshooting, we want to focus on a unit that runs but fails to efficiently cool your home. So here are some of the points that your local Mesa air conditioning tech will likely investigate.

Steps That Should Precede the Connection of A/C Gauges

1) Evaporator and Condenser Fans – To cool effectively and consistently, the motors installed in your home A/C system must be rightly designed for the unit. This means the tech needs to check the fans to ensure that they are of the correct horsepower. Also, although it may seem a no-brainer, the testing must also ensure that the fans are set to the specified rpm and that they are turning in the correct direction. Cleanliness and size is also important. So expect the tech to confirm that your blower blades are right-sized, right-pitched, and clean.

Arizona Repair or Replace Air Conditioning Troubleshooting2) Air Flow – To provide persistent and reliable Mesa home cooling, the condenser on your A/C unit must be supplied with normal outside air. This means the tech needs to ensure that no other devices are pumping hot air against the condenser. Checking the condition of the system filters is also part of the preliminary air conditioning troubleshooting process. You may also see the A/C tech investigating the condition of your evaporator supply and return ducting. You don’t want to lose cool air due to leaks in the ducting. Neither do you want the system drawing in warm outside air into the ducts.

3) Cleanliness – We already talked about making sure the blower fans are clean, but the tech will go further. He or she will also investigate and ensure that both the condenser and the evaporator coils are clean and that nothing is blocking the expected rate of airflow.

Connecting the HVAC Testing Gauges

Please note that the gauges and pressure checking tools should not be the first tools called into use. Failing to eliminate fundamental problems ensures that the A/C troubleshooting gauges will return incorrect pressures and temperatures. However, once the tech is ready to connect the gauges, the process should be somewhat as follows:

1) Refrigerant – The HVAC testing gauges are in place. The pressures are equalized, and the unit is switch off. Now the tech verifies that your Mesa home A/C contains the specified level of refrigerant. To perform this test, he or she will take a temperature reading of the evaporator coil. What is he or she looking to see: A reading that matches the chart or the pressure/temperature reading on the low side of the testing gauge.

2) Checking the System Operating Pressures – During this stage of the testing, professional air conditioning technicians run the unit until temperatures drop to near 5 degrees above the spec temperatures of the unit in question. What he or she expects from the gauges:

  • Suction pressure ranging between 35 to 40 degrees below return air
  • Superheat at the compressor within 20-30 degrees
  • 20-35 degree discharge pressure above ambient
  • A 20-30 degree rise in air temperature through the condenser
  • A 15-20 degree drop in air temperature through the evaporator
  • At the outlet of the condenser or the receiver, a 10-15 degree subcooling readout

All Test Well Yet The Mesa home A/C Still Fails To Cool Correctly

By now, the tech has either asked you to “give some space” or he or she has shown you what to look for when reading the HVAC gauges. But now… All checks well yet the system still fails to cool your home.

Check the Capacity – This means the tech will now to investigate the web bulb returns on the air as it enters and leaves the evaporator. There will be some calculations involved. And unless the tech has the memory of an elephant, he or she will pull out an enthalpy conversion table or a pshchrometric chart. What exactly is being tested: How much btu of heat is being absorbed by the evaporator. The tech is making a comparison between the running capacities of your system against the design capacity of your system. This helps the A/C tech determine whether your Mesa home cooling system is sufficient to handle your home. Any system that is operating within reasonable range of the design capacity but still fails to persistently and efficiently cool a given space is just plain too small for the task.

So now that you are up-to-snuff on basic air conditioning troubleshooting, call in your local Mesa home AC service team. Contact American Cooling and Heating today.

Obsolete Mesa Residential Air Conditioning Reduces Home Selling Value

Mesa Residential Air Conditioning Sells HomeModern Installed Mesa Residential AC Plays Major Role In Selling Homes

Due to sweltering summers, real estate experts across the nation are advising sellers to install modern, efficient and quiet residential air conditioning systems. The rules for Mesa AZ are no different. Although this small region of Arizona can often boast sunny days, cool desert night winds, and a climate perfect for visitors and new home buyers, the core summer months in Mesa AZ bring abundant sunshine, low humidity, and sweltering 100-degree plus temperatures.

At any moment, one of the residing 175,000 plus Mesa homeowners may enter the home resale marketplace (1). Yet in many cases, obsolete Mesa residential air conditioning reduces the resale value of the home. According to James Lowenstern, president of Castles Unlimited real estate offices, installing modern and efficient home AC is “…among today’s top essentials.”

Mesa Residential Air Conditioning A Year-Around Necessity

Low humidity, dry clean air, and an average temperature of 86 degrees attract many visitors to Mesa. But 86 degrees still makes for a very hot day. When seeking to sell your home, you have to determine the payback that can accompany installing modern HVAC equipment. But that’s a decision that comes with little difficulty. Your competitors are pressing forward with a sure winner. Be assured that of itself newly installed central AC may not return the full value of initial installation cost. But it will help you sell your home quicker… and when combined with other home improvements the overall value of your Mesa AZ “home for sale” can actually surpass the total cost for upgrades all around.

By contrast, that old obsolete residential air conditioning system can crash the market value of your Mesa home. So even if you don’t upgrade the existing AC, providing the buyer with an allowance for upgrading to his or her preferred system may be your wisest choice.

Tips On Replacing Your Obsolete Mesa Residential Air Conditioning

1) Rebates, Energy Credits and More

Although from vendor to vendor HVAC products tend to hold to an average pricing scale, manufacturers offer different rebates at different seasons of the year. Furthermore, not every unit includes energy credits. So; before buying, take time to investigate rebates, energy credits and more.

2) Existing Duct work

It may seem a strange thing, but there are yet homes in Mesa that do not include installed central air conditioning. Lacking existing duct work may limit the AC options for your home. Also, lacking a sufficient number of ducts in the right width can be a problem. To best determine your current situation, schedule a “Free” Mesa AZ home air conditioning inspection with American Cooling and Heating.

3) Right Sizing

This is a job for the HVAC technician, but be careful of those who come in offering a “rule-of-thumb” solution. Right sizing your home air conditioning system involves more than merely matching square footage to a given system-rating factor.

4) Where To Locate The Condenser

Typically, the best location solution involves outside for the condenser and inside with the furnace air handler with the evaporator coil.

5) Warranties and Maintenance Contracts

Selling home involves lots of paperwork. Providing your Mesa home buyer with warranty and maintenance details for any existing or newly installed appliances, construction work or more will help beef up the sale.


Wall Street Journal Analyses the Effect of AC on Home Prices

How much more will home buyers pay for a residence equipped with modern central air conditioning? To answer this question, we turn to research performed by the editors of The Wall Street Journal.

The test involved an analysis of property listing in twenty-two metro areas. Some real estate sales responders reported that homes with central A/C often listed for 105% higher than residents that lacked central AC. The Wall Street Journal article also confirms that the National Association of Realtors reports that central air appears to be the primary force behind home buying decisions (2). Face it; everyone likes the energy savings that accompany modern installed air conditioning systems.

HVAC Contractor Licensing In A/C Maintenance, Upgrades and New Installations

Whether residing in Washington, DC, Charlotte, NC or Mesa, Arizona, every homeowner eventually encounters the concept of construction permits and/or contractor licensing. The necessities of a building permit change from region to region and with accordance to the scope of a given project. However the importance of always working with a properly licensed HVAC contractor will never change. You should accept air conditioning services only from a bonded, insured and licensed Mesa air conditioning professional.

Purpose of HVAC Permits and Licenses

By nature, a building permit is designed to provide reasonable assurances that a home is safe from structural failure, electrical shock, undue health risks, and fire hazards associated with electrical components and home heating and cooling systems. They also help homeowners and city officials ensure that housing contractors have a valid contractor’s license for services within a specific geographical location and for performing a specific work task within that location. Furthermore, permits and evidence of contractor licensing can be useful during the sale or refinancing of a home. In many regions of the nation, prospective lending institutions require proof that existing alterations to the home were performed in compliance with local codes. 

However, not every home improvement or home structural change requires that the homeowner take out a building permit. According to the Mesa-AZ online government resource page, Mesa-related building permits are only required when a structural change or major alternation is performed on an existing building or when any new construction project is undertaken. Each separate process of the construction requires a distinct and separate permit. Examples of processes requiring permits include:

  • Electrical Work
  • Mechanical Work
  • AND Plumbing Work.

Processes that do not require a permit are many, including installing new cabinets, roofing materials, window awnings, and various plumbing activities. However, most of these projects do include exceptions wherein some aspects of such projects may require your contractor to take out a building permit in your behalf.

Mesa HVAC Permit Specifics

When dealing with HVAC equipment in Mesa, no permit is required if your contractor is changing out a unit with a system in the same tonnage. However, permits are required on all new installations. Before signing your contractor make sure you know who will accept the responsibility for obtaining any necessary permits.


Effective A/C Maintenance Promotes Better Home HVAC Equipment Performance

A host of issues affect the cost of home heating and cooling. Adding heavy window drapes, additional attic installation and better sealing the doors are steps that you can use when striving to reduce the cooling load on your home. You can also switch over to more natural cooling processes such as electric fans, open windows, and specialty A/C water cool systems. Simple steps like bumping the thermostat up a few degrees can also reduce the cooling expenses.

System tune-ups and annual scheduled HVAC maintenance helps ensure that your existing equipment is prime-functional for it’s capacity. In older homes with aging air conditioning systems, upgrading to a new energy-efficient heat pump will likely produce a dynamitic decrease in the system’s energy consumption level.

Factors Involved – A/C Maintenance in a Nutshell

All heating and cooling equipment requires a reasonable measure of adjustments, cleaning, monitoring and routine maintenance. To best ensure that your Mesa home air conditioning system endures unto an expected life cycle:

  • Make time for habitual inspections
  • Schedule yearly and semi-annual A/C system tune-ups
  • Make routine maintenance of inside filters and registers your personal task
  • Protect your warranty by rigidly following the original equipment manufacturer’s specifications.

To ensure that your system operates at peek performance and to reduce waste due to loss performance issues, learn and practice the following three principles of HVAC service and maintenance:

  • The essential HVAC service requirements for maintaining a comfortable and healthy indoor environment
  • Service factors that help keep your Mesa home heating and cooling equipment functioning efficiently throughout the expected lifecycle
  • AND the specifics of A/C and Heat Pump service and upkeep unique to the residential community of Mesa, Arizona.
