Buying AC Units Online – Beware!!

April 4, 2016 6:10 pm

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin Benjamin Franklin was one of the most brilliant minds in recent history, I’m sure we can all agree. The quote above is also something that I’m sure we can all agree on. So why do we always try to find the “best deal” and continually put ourselves in the position to receive low quality products, bad service, and poor workmanship for the sake of saving money? Buying an air conditioning unit online sounds like a great deal on the surface. The prices are amazing. You’ll be the hero around the water cooler at work when your friends and coworkers hear about your “great deal”. But when you consider several key factors that go into replacing an air conditioner, it becomes clear that the sweetness of the low price won’t last; and the bitterness from choosing a low quality brand and installing contractor will stay with you for a long, long time. “The most important things any consumer should consider when purchasing an air conditioner are the reputation of the installing contractor and the reliability of the brand of air conditioner,” according to Steve...

How to Save on Air Conditioning without Spending a Fortune

April 25, 2015 8:29 pm

Air conditioning in Phoenix comes at a premium. It may seem impossible to save on the costs because of how often you need to have the air conditioning on, but there are a few simple and inexpensive ways you can reduce this summer. Raise the temperature on your thermostat. Just raising it by 2 degrees will help you save 20% or more on your cooling costs! Change your air filters every 1-3 months. Manufacturers recommend changing the filters every 3-6 months, but because we are in a very dusty climate, your filter will accumulate more dirt and debris than normal. 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 circulate the cold air from your air conditioner. This helps to maintain a more consistent temperature, and keeps the air conditioner from continually cycling. When in need of AC repair Phoenix residents depend on Mason Mechanical. We will help you with all of your cooling needs, from maintenance, to repair or replacement. Contact us for more ways to save on...

Plant Trees in Phoenix to Stay Cool!

March 27, 2015 7:09 pm

Do you have a lot of vegetation in your yard? If not, you may want to consider planting more! The city offers programs for homeowners to purchase trees at discounted rates to increase the amount of vegetation in our city. You may have underestimated what vegetation can do for your home! Curb Appeal: A well-landscaped yard has far more curb appeal than a barren yard. This will add value to your home. Better for the Environment: You may have heard of the “heat bubble” that Phoenix is considered to be, due to all of the concrete in town. Concrete holds heat, unlike vegetation. By planting more native vegetation, you can help to re-balance our climate. Your Health: Just like the positive effects houseplants have on your health, outdoor vegetation will do the same through the process of photosynthesis, turning carbon dioxide to oxygen. Energy Efficiency: Vegetation should be planted in a way that it shades areas of your home that get the most direct sunlight. If you do this, you can cool your home naturally, giving your air conditioner a break, boosting efficiency, and lowering cooling costs! For Phoenix air conditioning tips or to learn more about making your home...

Importance of Humidity in your home

November 25, 2014 10:12 pm

Why Humidity is Important in Your Home Humidity is something you don’t want too little of or too much of in your home. But when you find the perfect level, it has great benefits. To prevent damage to your home and the items in your home (including your own health), it is extremely important to maintain the proper level of humidity. Too much humidity can cause water damage to the structure of your home, your furniture, and your belongings. The excessive moisture in the air gets trapped in nooks and crannies, and can lead to decay and irreversible damage. Not only do you risk damage to your property, but you also risk mold and bacteria, which can be detrimental to your health. Not enough humidity can also cause significant damage. Anything made of wood that has joints can dry and crack, including your furniture and instruments. The dry air also causes health issues like bloody noses, difficulty breathing, and dust buildup, which is not good for people who already experience breathing issues, asthma, or allergies. If you have an older furnace, the air being too dry is more likely your problem rather than too much humidity. This can be solved...
