Spring is here! Time to tidy up the yard, set-up the patio furniture, clean-up the BBQ and prepare your air conditioner for the hot days ahead. For those fortunate enough, it’s also time to open the pool and ensure your pool heater is running efficiently and smoothly to get the water to that perfect temperature. Air1One Mechanical is here to help and can make these tasks a little less painful, giving you more time to spend in the sun making memories with family and friends!
NATURAL GAS BBQ
A natural gas grill is definitely something you should look into if you are interested in convenience, more affordability, and greener solutions. The switch from propane to natural gas grilling will bring you instant savings. Having a natural gas BBQ will save you the hassle of refilling your propane tank, usually at the most inconvenient times. Since natural gas is already supplied to your home, connecting a line to your grill ensures you’ll always have enough gas for grilling and is a convenient, green option. Air1one Mechanical team members are highly qualified, and this process won’t take long for our experienced technicians. Switching to natural gas is a simple process, and the fuel savings make it worth your up-front investment.
Spring is the best time to tune-up your air conditioner because you don’t really need it to run full time yet. Also, scheduling service before your system is in full use is the best way to ensure it runs smoothly. You’d hate to be stuck dealing with air conditioner trouble on a day you really need it. You may be thinking, “But it was working fine when we shut it down last season”. Your air conditioner has a lot of complex components that can run nonstop all summer and problems can build up over the course of a
season. Some possible issues could be:
a) Problems with the blower motor that can lead to airflow issues.
b) Electrical troubles that cause problems like hard starting or complete system breakdowns.
c) Dirt building up that blocks heat exchange from the coils, leading to problems like freezing.
Air flow is vital to the efficiency of your air conditioning unit. Keeping both coils clean and free from debris, will make sure you’re using the unit to its fullest capability. Many of these problems go largely unnoticed until a professional technician is needed in the middle of a busy hot day. Having a spring tune-up allows you to have less hassle with possible problems. During a maintenance appointment, an Air1One Mechanical technician will complete a thorough inspection of your air conditioner equipment, along with providing a tune-up to improve efficiency—saving you money! You may need to schedule a separate appointment for any repairs but trust us, it’s worth it!
If you want to jump into pool water where the temperature is “just right”, then a pool heater is the way to go. While it’s not really a pool necessity, it’s really the right choice if you want to extend your swimming season into the colder months. Pool heaters are one of the most energy efficient pool heating options available. Electric heaters use resistors, gas heaters burn fuel and pool heaters harvest natural heat making them insanely energy efficient and affordable to operate compared to most other options. A pool heater may cost a bit more up front, but they make up for it ten-fold with substantially lower operation costs. They produce zero CO2 emissions making them highly eco-friendly and they are very durable. In fact, they are one of the longest-lasting pool heating solutions and with the proper pool heater maintenance and annual service calls, that durability can easily extend. Whether it be maintenance/service on your existing HVAC equipment or an estimate for something new, Air1One Mechanical’s experienced team is here to take care of all your HVAC requirements.
