Goettl Technician replacing duct filter

Why Your Heating and Cooling Efficiency is Slipping

When many people think of Arizona, they rightly envision hot, sunny summer days. We certainly have plenty of those throughout the course of the season. However, residents around here know full well that the heat doesn’t stick around all year. During the heating season, while it may pale in comparison to the extremity of the summer weather, you are going to have to run your heater to maintain warm and comfortable temperatures throughout your home. At Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning, we believe that you deserve the best when it comes to comfort, and that extends to how much you must pay in order to keep your home comfortable. There are a number of reasons as to why your AC and heating system efficiency in Benson may suffer. Whatever the problem is, we have the solution. Contact us today if you are sick of paying too much to heat and cool your home.

If your heating and cooling system has always under-performed in terms of energy efficiency, then it is possible that your system was not installed properly or that it is not of the right size for your home. In such instances, considerable work may be necessary, including investing in a properly sized system, in order to attain the efficiency levels that you hope for. If your energy efficiency was fine, though, and has been slipping over time, there may be a number of factors at play which can be addressed with less drastic measures.

Should you use a forced air distribution system in order to deliver conditioned air throughout your home, then it may be your ductwork that is the problem. If your ducts have developed leaks and tears, or if connections have loosened, they may allow conditioned air to escape the system. This can lead to considerable energy loss and seriously reduced efficiency.

Additionally, it is possible that dirty ductwork is to blame. No, it is not very likely that pollutants will build up to the point that they are blocking off a section of your ductwork. However, these pollutants can overwhelm air filters in your system, increasing airflow resistance and causing your system to work harder. Also, dirt and dust can build up on vital components in your system, causing a drop in efficiency as well.

It is even possible that your thermostat is not functioning properly, failing to cycle your system off and on appropriately. The fact of the matter is that any number of issues can cause a drop in efficiency, and only a pro can diagnose and resolve the problems successfully.

To boost AC and heating system efficiency in Benson, work with the professionals you can count on at Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning.

My technician Jorge (George) Gutierrez was out today performing the a/c system check. He did a fabulous job and identified significant issues and concerns for the longevity of my current 12 year old system. He was very knowledgeable and helpful on what my options are and in the end I’ll be getting a new system instead of worrying about the current system failing in our extremely hot temperatures. He was very respectful of my home and my dog was ecstatic to meet him.

Frank identified the need for new faucets in the master bath and discussed my preferences. The type of faucet being replaced is no longer available (mini wide spread) so he had to do some research to come up with a solution. Had to be ordered, not surprisingly, and we appreciate his conscientious performance.

This was my first service with this company and it was a pleasant one. The technicians were professional and polite and quickly resolved a minor scheduling conflict. Interaction with a sales manager for a quote on needed equipment was equally pleasant.

Signed up for the Sadie membership as a a preventative measure to avoid bigger problems down the line. Had my appointment to check my system today and to my surprise the tech discovered a huge gash in my ductwork! Thankfully so because the ductwork up there is a very tight space which I could never squeeze myself into and would’ve gone unnoticed for who knows how long. Huge thank you to Technician Roy Adame for making the trip out on a Saturday afternoon, going the extra mile to fully inspect the system in a tight space, and fully explaining the possible causes of the damage and the impact it would on the system performance. 🙏🏼🤙🏼🫡👏🏼🙂
