Question: Should I have my Air Conditioning System Serviced this Spring?

With Spring in the air, my thoughts turn to the “Spring Rush”.   This is the time when everyone who did not have their Heat Pump or Air Conditioning System serviced, waited till it was too hot to sleep, and placed an emergency call to fix their System.  All of you at once!  You can avoid the “Spring Break” by doing a little preventive maintenance.  First, clean out around your outdoor unit.  You may find sticks and leaves have fell on or piled up around it over the winter.  Second, change your air filter.  Third, start your Air Conditioning System early and make sure it runs OK.   If you need help or just want to “have it done by a professional”, please call Foothills Mechanical Service.  We are here to help.  Remember, just a little Preventive Maintenance could keep you from being caught up in the “Spring Rush”!

Question: My house is dusty... What can I do?

We recommend a whole house air cleaner. I recommend and use the Aprilaire 5000. After installing and servicing the Aprilaire 5000 for the last 5 years, I am confident of its performance in removing dust, pollen, and other allergy causing debris from the air in the home. I installed one in my house based on the testimony of my customers who have one. It works! Call for an in home visit to see if the Aprilaire 5000 is right for you.

I like Fall, but I get so dry in the Winter.

Winter dryness can cause discomfort of the nose, eyes, and skin. It affects some worse than others. You know the humidity is too low when the hardwood floors begin to shrink. You can also tell because you walk across the carpet and get shocked on the next thing you touch. I can recommend two things: First, Dr. Oz says don’t take those hot showers. Hot water dries out the skin. Secondly, I recommend installing a whole house humidifier. Adding a humidifier to your heating system can really helps keep the humidity in your house stable.
