Here’s what you need to know about phase-out of A/C Freon

Monday, August 14th, 2017

The year 2020 will capture attention for being an election year and perhaps for the summer Olympics in Tokyo. On the homeownership side of things, however, it’s the year that an old ozone-eating refrigerant long-used in American home air conditioning units is finally retired for good.

R-22 refrigerant, commonly known by brand name Freon, will no longer be imported or produced in the U.S. as of Jan. 1, 2020. With that, homeowners will see already escalating R-22 prices continuing to climb as supplies dwindle. Meanwhile, they will also be faced with questions about when to replace an aging system running on R-22.

The good news is, that in many cases, there are ways to tend to repairs that won’t require replacement of older systems using R-22 right away. Still, it’s important to find an honest air conditioning contractor who won’t try to talk you into an unnecessary replacement, said Dennis Soukup, director of the air conditioning technologies program at the College of Southern Nevada, which has educated thousands of valley air conditioning technicians through the years.

“I’m concerned about service technicians forced to be salesmen, and they’re telling people doom and gloom and that they need to buy a new unit when it’s really only a very common repair,” Soukup said.

Soukup, along with other experts, weighed in on what consumers should know about the potential effects of the coming R-22 production deadline.

The what and why of it

R-22 is a hydrochlorofluorocarbon known to contribute to ozone layer depletion. The U.S. Clean Air Act under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer indicates that on Jan. 1, 2020, the U.S. will no longer produce or import the refrigerant anymore. Air conditioning companies will be allowed to sell their remaining supplies of R-22 produced prior to the deadline, said EPA spokesperson Enesta Jones.

Air conditioning system manufacturers stopped using R-22 in 2010, replacing it in new units with the more ozone-friendly R-410A refrigerant. But for those with older systems still using R-22, that doesn’t mean an immediate replacement is needed.

“R-22 that is recovered and reclaimed, along with R-22 produced prior to 2020, will help meet the needs of owners of existing R-22 systems well beyond the phase out date,” Jones added.

The pricing glitch

Using R-22, unfortunately, comes at a cost — a steep one at that. Because of diminishing supply levels, R-22, today, costs around $100 a pound to replace, said Ken Goodrich, president and CEO of Goettl Air Conditioning, a heating and air conditioning service company serving Las Vegas, Phoenix and Tucson.

“The price is about 10 times what it was five years ago,” Goodrich said.

The industry veteran also has seen home warranty companies institute clauses about R-22’s obsolescence and charge higher fees for repairs as a result, sometimes upwards of $1,000.

“I’ve gotten calls from about 25 people this summer with home warranties saying ‘I gotta pay $1,000 because of R-22,’” he said. “Some make the decision that they’d rather put that $1,000 towards a new high-efficiency unit rather than a $1,000 Freon drop.”

Goodrich agrees with Soukup, saying, “If someone says you need to replace a system just because of R-22, I’d say that’s not quite the case.”

Soukup says it’s important to watch out for common repairs such as fan motors, capacity relays, contactors and other system parts suddenly becoming a conversation about replacing a unit because of R-22.

“It’s 117 degrees out and people are scared. Someone says you need a new unit and it’s really only a routine item,” Soukup said. “You don’t need a new car when you only have a flat tire. … I tell people, ‘Don’t panic until you have a bad compressor.’”

 Alternatives to Freon

There also are several alternatives that R-22 systems can use without needing retrofitting. They are what the industry terms as “drop ins” not requiring changes to seals or oils within the sealed air conditioning system.

The most common alternative refrigerants are R-422D, R-427A and R-407C. Soukup categorizes them as “good, better, best” and routinely uses R-407C, saying it is very close in performance to R-22.

“If my unit was to leak and have a problem that’s routine and does not require a major component change, I’d use R-407C. It’s about a 98 percent spot-on identical replacement to R-22,” he said.

The alternatives come at about one-third the cost of today’s R-22 price, too.

While Soukup sees R-407C as a viable alternative, Goodrich prefers to top off systems, after fixing leaks with R-22, adding that in some cases systems can run up to 30 percent less efficient, particularly in extreme heat above 105 degrees.

“These drop-ins just aren’t going to have the same capacity. … The air tends to be about 3 degrees warmer. That’s the downside,” Goodrich said. “The upside is you can keep the old machine running and not have to spend $6,000 or $8,000. and you can push it off for a little while. … You just have to remember that it’s not going to be as good as putting in new Freon.”

Maintenance, things to watch for

The R-22 phase-out can impact a few maintenance and repair scenarios any homeowner might face. Here are a few tips to keep in mind.

■ No either/or: If you have R-22 refrigerant in your system and levels are low, you must either refill with R-22 or, if you decide to use an alternative, the R-22 must be removed and completely recaptured and the system must be refilled completely with the alternative. It cannot simply be topped off with a cheaper alternative refrigerant, experts explained.

“A good technician should show you and break down the difference in price and clearly explain what they’re doing,” Soukup added.

■ R-22 certification: When selecting a contractor, make sure he or she has the EPA’s Section 608 certification, which is needed to service equipment containing R-22, Jones said.

“Homeowners should also request that service technicians locate and repair leaks instead of just ‘topping off’ leaking systems,” she added.

■ Watch the attic: If you have a unit where one part of it is outside and the other in the attic (most single family residences in Las Vegas do), make sure the technician also services the unit in the attic, Goodrich said. Just tending to the condenser outside of the home is not enough.

“Make sure they go up in that attic. That’s where a lot of leaks happen,” he said.

■ Tune-up time: An annual tune-up should occur in the spring when the weather first starts to warm up. “It’s that first time you reach to change the thermostat, that’s when I tell people to call someone out,” Soukup said.

■ Basic maintenance: Both Soukup and Goodrich also suggest other general maintenance to extend the life of the unit, such as regularly changing air filters, checking the thermostat battery annually and keeping the outside air conditioning coil free of weeds and bushes.

Goettl’s Tips to Beat the Summer Heat & Save you Money

Monday, August 14th, 2017

With the heat of summer in full swing, it can be difficult at times to not long for a cooler place. But while the only way to get to that cooler place in reality might be using your HVAC system with Goettl, doing so doesn’t have to bust your budget. Financially responsible HVAC use involves nothing more than knowing and applying the following money-saving tips. Maybe you’ll save up enough to travel to that cooler climate in real life after all!

1. Choose a Programmable Thermostat

If you don’t have one of these, your HVAC unit will work overtime to keep your home at a specific temperature no matter what time of the day it is or who is actually home. With a programmable thermostat, you can set a different temperature for different times of the day, meaning your HVAC unit won’t be working in overdrive when you aren’t there. You can also program settings for different rooms.

2. Check the Vents

Vents that are closed or dirty can make it much harder for your HVAC unit to operate properly. If a particular room in your home seems warmer than the others, a closed vent could be to blame. Dirt and dust can also easily collect on vents, which makes it harder for that refreshing air to circulate in the room.

3. Change the Air Filters

The air filters in your HVAC system should be changed at least every six months and preferably every three. Some experts even suggest changing them monthly. If your filters are clogged or dirty, they will block airflow and reduce overall system efficiency. Just taking this step alone can reduce the energy consumption of your unit by up to 15 percent.

4. Block the Sun

If your unit is located in direct sunlight, you could be forcing it to work much harder than it actually needs to. An awning or tree to cover the unit might do the trick, although it’s important not to let parts from any trees get into the unit. Blocking the sun inside your home by keeping blinds and curtains closed is also important since direct sunlight through a window can easily heat up rooms inside your home and make your unit work that much harder.

5. Keep It Clean

It is a good idea to keep both the indoor and outdoor components of your HVAC system clean. Keeping the outdoor condenser fan clean helps it run efficiently, and cleaning the indoor evaporating coil means that your system can do a much better job of keeping the air that moves through it cool.

6. Use Ceiling Fans

Hot air rises, meaning that during those hot summer months, you can expect to find more heat near the ceiling or on the upper floors of your home. Ceiling fans can help move this air out of your home. They also help circulate the cool air coming from your system around the room.

7. Replace Older HVAC Units

Just like any other kind of machine, HVAC systems wear out and break down over time. They become less efficient at doing their jobs and need replaced. Technology has also improved over time, so newer HVAC models are generally more efficient than their older counterparts.

Goettl Air Conditioning is an HVAC company that has been around since 1939. Based out of Phoenix, Goettl serves the areas of Phoenix, Tuscon, Northern Arizona, Las Vegas, and Southern California. The company was founded by brothers Gust and Adam Goettl and is currently owned by Ken Goodrich.

Goettl provides a full range of HVAC services. Some of the services they provide include:

Air Conditioning

Goettl installs new air conditioning systems as well as repairs and maintains existing units. They offer cleaning services, check refrigerant levels and perform a complete inspection of your air conditioning unit to ensure it is in good working order.

Heating

You also need your HVAC system to work in the winter, and Goettl is here to help with that as well. They can install new heating systems as well as inspect and maintain existing ones.

Heat Pump

If you are looking for something that combines heating and air conditioning into one unit, a heat pump is the way to go. It looks like a standard air conditioner but is capable of moving heat both into your home and out. Goettl can install and maintain these units.

Thermostats

A smart thermostat is a smart way to save money, and Goettl both sells and installs these products. Take complete control of your HVAC system no matter where you are with a smart thermostat.

These are just some of the many services Goettl has to offer to those in need of a good quality HVAC system. However, it’s not just their expertise and range of services that makes Goettl shine. Goettl’s work ethic is also superior within the industry. Their skilled and highly trained technicians take pride in doing a job right the first time, meaning you get more value for your money. They also seek to provide an unmatched quality of customer service to all of their customers. Goettl’s goal is to have customers seek them out again and again for their HVAC system needs, and they know the best way to make that happen is to do an excellent job the first time.

While summer is hot and generally means cranking up the AC in order to make it a little more bearable, draining your bank account in order to stay cool is not something you have to bear. With a little knowledge of how to keep your system running efficiently, saving money while still running the AC is still very doable. Goettl can help you keep your system in top shape with the unique blend of expertise and customer service that only they can provide.

Sadie says “Remember we get hot too! Take care of us with these tips and tricks!”

Monday, June 19th, 2017

List of General Tips

  • Beware of the Sidewalk

Cement, asphalt, and even truck beds can be hotter than they look! The American Veterinary Medical Association recommends trying to stay off hot surfaces during the summer as they can burn your pet’s paws. If you can’t hold the back of your hand to sidewalk for 10 seconds without feeling the heat, consider moving your walks to the morning or late evening.

  • You pets can get sunburn too!
    Pets can get sunburn too, and pets with light colored, short coats are especially susceptible. To beat the heat, apply a pet safe sunscreen to their ears and nose 30 minutes to outdoor activity.
  • Set an appointment with your groomer!

Keeping your pets well-groomed in the summer months helps them regulate their temperature. The American Veterinary Medical Association recommends keeping your pet’s properly groomed to provide better circulation and temperature relation.  Call your local veterinarian to figure out the best cut for your pets.

  • Heatwave

Because your pets can’t sweat like you do, it’s harder for them to keep cool during the summer. The Humane Society of the United States recommends making sure your pets have access to fresh, cool water and shady places during the summer, and keep an eye out for dehydration while they are outside.

  • Splish-Splash!

Consider getting a doggie pool for your pets to play in during the heat. A doggie pool will give your pets a way to keep cool while also provide them with a new toy to play with at the same time. It’s a win-win!

  • Gardens, Garages, and Grass oh my!

Summer temperate can cause antifreeze to leak from overheating cars, leaving sweet tasting puddles that are harmful to pets. Keep an eye out for leaking cars, and make sure to keep your pets away from the mess. Some lawn and garden products could be harmful to your pet’s health. Keep fertilizers and other garden related products up and out of your pet’s reach.

  • Day at the Beach (Lake)?

While the cool water may be tempting to a hot dog, make sure they don’t drink too much (lake? salt?) and the salt in the water could make them sick. Did Fido make a splash? At the end of the day, make sure to rinse their coat with freshwater, as salt and other minerals found in ocean (lake?) can cause damage to your pets coat.

  • BBQ and Fireworks

With BBQ season in full swing, Make sure to keep your dogs and cats out of foods containing grapes, avocado, chocolate, fatty meats, and onions, as these foods are harmful to your pets. When it’s time for fireworks, remember your pets might get scared! According to the ASPCA, more animals go missing around 4th of July than any other time, so give your pets a safe, comfortable place to hide during the festivities, and make sure their collar tag is up to date.

Are You Going to Need a New AC This Year?

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

While we are still quite a ways off from the hottest weather of the year, there is no denying that the 70 degree days are giving us some glimpses of warm weather to come. The nights are still chilly, and you aren’t going to be retiring your heater for the year just yet. That being said, you may want to start thinking about your options if you’re planning on replacing your air conditioner this year.

It’s not a decision that you should rush, of course. We live in a very hot area for much of the year, so you want to be sure to choose your system carefully. Here are a few options to consider. Remember to schedule your AC installation or replacement with our team. 

Central Air Conditioners

This is the most common of all home cooling systems, and it may be what you’re using right now to cool your home. By removing heat from the air and then circulating that cooled air around the house via a system of ductwork, central ACs are not only very effective but also allow for prompt cooling. They are far more efficient than using multiple window units throughout the house.

Ductless Mini Splits

If you don’t have ductwork installed in your home, or if you are looking to avoid the use of air ducts due to potential problems with leaks, then a ductless mini split system may be right for you. You can cool different areas of the house to different temperatures, thanks to the use of independent blowers. You can also take advantage of heat pump technology to reverse the operation of the system and to use it to heat your home with great efficiency.

Evaporative Coolers

These cooling systems are great for our dry area. They use very little electricity, as no compressor is used. Instead, they force air through a soaked pad that not only cools that air, but which can help to humidify the house a bit as well.

Contact Goettl Air Conditioning with any questions that you may have regarding your air conditioning options.

Common Problems with Insulation

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

man-sits-in-front-of-fanThe heat of our summer seasons around here is legendary. Our winter weather is obviously far milder than the heat of summer, but we still have plenty of uncomfortably chilly nights during that time of the year. When you think of overcoming such discomfort in your home, your mind may immediately go to your heating and air conditioning systems. There is another important factor to consider, however, and that is your insulation.

Chances are that you don’t think about your insulation all that much. It’s not like it is going to suffer mechanical problems the way that a heater or an AC might, right? Well, this is true. That does not, however, mean that your insulation is always going to function properly or maintain its integrity indefinitely. Here are a few problems that you may encounter with the insulation in your home. If you suspect trouble with your insulation, be sure to give us a call right away.

  1. An Inadequate Amount of Insulation. This is a problem that we’ll sometimes come across with blown-in insulation (though certainly not when our team installs your insulation). If you have had trouble maintaining even temperatures throughout your home ever since having your insulation installed, or if your energy costs have always seemed higher than they should, it’s possible that your house want not outfitted with enough insulation to begin with. Insufficient amounts of insulation result in insufficient R-value levels, which denote the resistance to heat transfer offered by the insulation.
  2. Poor Installation Practices. Batt insulation, those fluffy pink rolls that most homeowners think of when the envision insulating materials, is still very commonly used. However, if misaligned or not installed directly against surfaces, your batt insulation is not going to provide the R-value specified by the product. We will always make sure that your batt insulation is installed correctly so that it gets off to a great start, and stays on that path.
  3. Degradation. Over time, it is possible that your insulation may degrade in quality. We don’t mean to suggest that problems with one’s insulation are always the result of shoddy service quality. It is possible that leaks in your home may damage your insulation with water. You may have an infestation of pests and varmints that damage your insulation. Whatever the case may be, though, it is always in your best interest to contact trained professionals immediately.

Is It Really That Big of a Deal?

You may not think that subpar insulation is really that big of a deal. After all, you are still able to heat and cool your home effectively, right? Well, there are a lot of negative consequences to ignoring signs of trouble with your insulation. For instance, you may put excess strain on your HVAC system as it struggles to maintain balanced temperatures throughout your home. That increases the risk of a breakdown. You may also be paying more than you should have to in order to live comfortably. We believe that you deserve better than that.

Common Contributors to Poor Indoor Air Quality

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

allergens-from-natureAs soon as you hear the word “comfort,” your mind probably jumps right to your air conditioning system. We live in one of the hottest areas of the country, after all, so your home cooling system definitely plays a vital role in keeping you comfortable throughout the much of the year. Secondly, you may think of your heater. It’s used far less, of course, but is still important. If you are only thinking of temperature control when it comes to your home comfort, however, you are making a major oversight.

The quality of the air in your home must also be taken into serious consideration. Unfortunately, it frequently is not in many homes. There are many reasons as to why your indoor air quality may suffer. Here are a few examples, as well as some suggestions for boosting your indoor air quality.

  1. Pollutants from outdoors can make their way into your home, aggravating allergy and asthma symptoms. Plant matter is a common cause of such issues, along with grass clippings, etc.
  2. Do you live near a busy roadway? If so, the dust and dirt from a heavily traveled road could definitely lead to problems with reduced indoor air quality. You don’t want to have to keep your windows shut on a nice day to avoid the problem.
  3. Are you in a rapidly developing area? Are there new buildings being constructed near your home? The construction process can definitely take a toll on the air quality surrounding your home, and that can lead to issues indoors.
  4. General cleanliness is a major factor, as well. If you don’t keep up with vacuuming and sweeping, for instance, settled dust and dirt can be sent airborne with the basic day to day activities in your home.
  5. We all love our pets, but the fact of the matter is that your dog or cat could be one of the driving forces behind your low indoor air quality. From shedding fur to dander and more, pets really can drag down air quality.

So What Can I Do?

Obviously we are not going to tell you that you need to pull up your roots and move away from major roadways or wooded areas. We certainly wouldn’t suggest giving up beloved pets to avoid allergens in your home. So what can you do about it?

Simple, really. Just give us a call! Our indoor air quality specialists can outfit your home with the systems that you need in order to boost the quality of the air that you breathe. Just remember that no system is a cure-all solution. You may need a multi-pronged approach to really get the job done.

  1. Air Cleaners can be used in order to remove pollutants from the air in a more proactive way than basic air filtration. Electronic air cleaners can trap pollutants that may otherwise pass through filters.
  2. UV Germicidal Lights can be used in order to deal with biological pollutants. These are pollutants that are living microorganisms, capable of reproducing. Destroying them is necessary.
  3. Duct Cleaning is a service, not a system. Our technicians can thoroughly clean out your ducts in order to ensure that they are not distributing pollutants and allergens throughout your home.

Why Choose a Dual Fuel AC System?

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

thermostat-risingAs far as summer heat goes, Arizona can be pretty brutal. While we don’t have to deal with the wet, heavy, and humid air that certain other locales do during the summer season, our dry heat can still be overbearing. That is why it is so important that you have a great air conditioner in place that will be able to take care of your cooling needs day after day, in a successful manner.

If you are in need of a new air conditioner, or if you are having a home built and the time has come to get the HVAC system in place, you should really consider the use of a dual fuel AC system. These systems are very unique, and have a lot to offer. We’ve got some information for you to keep in mind regarding the design and function of dual fuel systems, and we offer full services for dual fuel ACs including installation, repair, and maintenance.

Get Year Round Comfort and Great Efficiency

What exactly are you getting when you get a dual fuel air conditioning system installed on your property? Well, you’re getting two different HVAC systems: a gas furnace and a heat pump. Why would you want to buy two systems at once, though, especially when a heat pump offers year round comfort anyway?

It is true that a heat pump can both heat and cool your home, and you can certainly get away with using just a heat pump in order to keep your home comfortable throughout the year. It is also true, however, that as efficient as heat pumps may be, they are not always at their most efficient in every situation. In truth, there are circumstances in which a gas furnace may operate more efficiently than a heat pump in heating mode.

So Why Not Just Use a Central AC and a Gas Furnace?

Because, for the most part, the heat pump will be the more efficient heating option. There is a bit of a misconception about heat pumps that they cannot handle heating when the temperature outside drops below a certain point. This isn’t really true, as modern heat pumps are actually effective in colder temperatures than we ever even experience. While the performance may not really suffer, however, efficiency can and does.

Remember, heat pumps run on electricity, and electricity is expensive. Because they use electricity to transfer heat, rather than to generate it, heat pumps heat homes very affordably. When the temperature falls too much, though, and the heat pump starts using more and more electricity to transfer heat effectively, it starts to cost more to run. That is when the gas furnace in a dual fuel system kicks on.

The switch is automatic, and the system will switch back to the heat pump when it is the more efficient option automatically, as well. This ensures that you have the most effective and efficient heater running at all times, and still leaves you with the dependable cooling power of the heat pump as well.

What Exactly Is a Swamp Cooler?

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

man-with-electric-fanWe live in a very hot climate, obviously. That means that you not only need a great air conditioner that will reliably cool your home, but you also want one that won’t cost too much to run. After all, you don’t want to be draining your budget just to live comfortably.

Because we also live in a very dry climate, though, you really don’t want your air conditioner drying out the air in your home further. During the cooling process, as refrigerant evaporates and draws heat out of the air, moisture condenses and is drained away by a traditional AC. How do you prevent your air from drying out excessively? You could use a humidifier, or you could use an entirely different cooling process — one that actually helps you to add humidity to the air.

How Does It Work?

Very simply, actually. Unlike a traditional central air conditioner or heat pump, an evaporative, or swamp, cooler does not rely upon a refrigeration cycle in order to remove heat from the air in your home, disperse it outdoors, and recirculate cooled air throughout the house. In fact, the evaporative cooler shares more in common with a humidifier than it does with a traditional AC, to a certain degree.

Ideal for climates like ours where humidity levels tend to be low, an evaporative cooler actually cools air coming into the house by releasing humidity into it. Air is drawn in from outdoors, and is passed over water-saturated pads in the cooling system. This causes water to evaporate into the air, cooling it by 15-40 degrees in the process.

Great Energy Efficiency Awaits!

Because there is no refrigerant cycle to facilitate, swamp coolers use far less electricity than traditional air conditioners do. Keep in mind that you are only going to get the most efficient and reliable performance possible from your system if it is of the right size for your home, installed properly, and regularly serviced. Due to the element of water in the cooling system, evaporative coolers actually require more maintenance than standard central ACs.

Pads have to be replaced, generally at least twice throughout the cooling season. There are filters that will have to be replaced, a reservoir to clean, and a pump that will need to be kept in prime working condition. You should also remember that not all swamp coolers are as efficient as others. The process is inherently efficient, but newer, two-stage models using a pre-cooler are even more effective and can save you more energy.

So Too Does Great Indoor Air Quality!

When you run a swamp cooler, you actually need to leave your windows open a bit in order to bring in fresh air that can be passed through the cooler. When you compare this to the operation of a central AC, which will usually lead homeowners to seal up their homes to conserve energy, the advantage in terms of air quality is clear.

Not only will a swamp cooler keep your home cool and comfortable efficiently, but it can also keep the air well-humidified and of a high quality. They’re not right for every home or situation, naturally. If you think that you could benefit from the use of an evaporative cooler, though, be sure to give us a call and have the job done right.
