Air Conditioning – How Important Is It?

In the still of the Sonoran Desert, during a prolonged summer heatwave, the intensity of the stifling, triple digit temperatures will make you gasp for air when you step outside in the heat of the afternoon sun. Is it possible that this summer will be hotter than last? Turns out, cool air is not only a luxury but often a lifesaver. Air conditioners do more than provide comfort in the Valley of the Sun. Sometimes, they literally save lives!


Oxygen. Cool clean air. Just how important is it? Though human beings vary in their stamina and endurance, the rule of threes often applies – most people can go three weeks without food, three days without water but only three minutes without oxygen. From the moment we take our first breath, air is one of the most precious gifts we are given in life. It’s also something many of us take for granted. It might sound a little dramatic for an air conditioning blog post, but it’s useful to reflect on what’s truly important as the residents of Air-izona prepare for another long, hot summer.

Is Your Air Conditioner Ready for Another Record-Breaking Summer Scorcher?

Remember the old TV commercials for the Maytag repairman, “The loneliest guy in town?” There’s a variation on that theme in the air conditioning repair business. It’s true that most air conditioning units are well built and last for years. Most homeowners rarely consider their AC until something goes wrong. The Maytag repairman might be the loneliest guy in town, but when a heatwave hits Arizona, air conditioning repairmen are the most popular guys in Phoenix! They’ve got friends they never knew they had. The point is, no one wants to be without air conditioning when it’s 114 degrees. The problem is, when the heat is on, most repairmen are booked solid. If your system has not been checked recently, or you notice a decrease in cool air or strange noises from your unit, don’t put off calling for service. An ounce of prevention in June will pay dividends in July, August and September.
