Choosing The Right HVAC Repair Company

February 4, 2016

When you find yourself in need of AC repair in Tucson, AZ or surrounding areas, how do you go about choosing a company?  Hopefully, you don’t make the selection in the middle of a hot summer’s day when your air conditioning goes out unexpectedly, and you essentially pick a name out of the hat.  That’s the worst predicament to be in, and the worst time to try and make an informed choice. Perhaps, like many, you rely on sites like Yelp and others, where customers who have used the company you’re considering leave reviews about their service, experience and satisfaction.  Taken to the next level, there are companies like Angie’s List, which provide an additional layer of screening.  Those are both good ways to make your selection, but if you’re like most people, you’d rather have the word of someone you know, as opposed to the word of a complete stranger.  A recommendation from a trusted friend always carries more weight.  That’s why so many recommendations are made by word of mouth, or on social media. The folks at ACS (Air Conditioning Services) know and understand that.  That’s why the vast majority of their business comes from repeat customers, and...

Easy and Inexpensive Ways You Can Save on Air Conditioning

April 25, 2015

Living in Tucson, air conditioning costs are no joke! If you want to save on those costs, here are a few very inexpensive ways you can reduce this summer. Raise the temperature on your thermostat a couple degrees. If you are running it at 78 degrees or lower, consider raising it to 80-82 degrees. This small change will help you save 20% or more on your cooling costs. Change your air filters every 1-3 months. Since we are in a very dusty climate, your filters will accumulate a high amount of dirt and debris. When the filters are clogged, the air conditioner will work harder to move the air, thus costing you more money. Use your ceiling fans. Ceiling fans not only create a breeze and help make you feel cooler, but they also help to circulate the cold air that is being produced by your air conditioner. This helps to maintain a more consistent temperature, and keeps the air conditioner from continually cycling. When it comes to cooling service Tucson residents depend on ACS. We can help you will all of your heating and cooling needs, from service to installations, and anything in between!

High Efficiency Furnaces

February 27, 2015

It is only mid-February and already in the 80s here in the Tucson/Sahuarita area, so furnace service in Sahuarita AZ is probably the last thing on your mind. However, spring is actually the perfect time to replace an older furnace with a more efficient model. Here are a few signs that it is time to upgrade your furnace: Your furnace was manufactured in 1992 or earlier. In 1992 the United States Department of Energy adopted new efficiency guidelines that require all furnaces to have an efficiency rating of 80 or higher. The efficiency rating on a furnace lets you know the percentage of fuel that is converted into heat. If the efficiency rating is 80, that means that 80% of all fuel consumed by the furnace is converted into heat and the rest is waste. If your furnace was made before 1992, you are wasting 30% or more of your heating dollars each month. You have a newer furnace but with a low efficiency rating. While any furnace built after 1992 has to have an efficiency rating of at least 80, some new models have ratings as high as 98.5, meaning that there is only 1.5% waste. If your furnace is...
