Fort Smith, AR
A typical Arkansas summer workday for one of our air conditioner professionals is long, hot, and dirty. All day we repair broken air conditioners, recharge leaking refrigerant, replace motors, or deliver the bad news that a homeowner needs a new air conditioning unit.
In many instances, the air conditioners we repair are not working due to years of neglect from things like never changing filters, ignoring preventative maintenance, or not fixing the air conditioning unit when it starts performing poorly.
At Mountain Air Cooling & Heating, we stress the importance of routine heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) preventive maintenance with each of our Fort Smith area customers. Preventative maintenance not only guards against breakdowns, but every study on maintaining heating and cooling units shows they operate more efficiently and last much longer than units never serviced.
Our knowledgeable and experienced team can offer you an affordable HVAC service contract so you do not have to worry about keeping your air conditioning unit maintained.
The heating and air conditioning publication The News reported that leaking ductwork in a home “could easily be leaking one-third or more of . . . conditioned air into the attic or building envelope before it ever reaches its final destination. The result is an HVAC system that works harder and longer, and consumes much more energy, to heat and cool a home.”
If more than a third of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system’s conditioned air is lost, imaging how long your system must run to get your Arkansas home comfortable. Then consider how much extra that leaking ductwork is costing you month after month all year long!
Mountain Air Cooling & Heating has the tools and expertise to test your Fort Smith home’s ductwork to find the leaks, seal them, and stop the loss of money and energy. If your home is more than 20 years old, it may be time for air duct cleaning to make sure the air you and your family breathe is free from dust and mold.
Call our team at 479-782-4328. We can check the condition and cleanliness of your home’s air duct system and offer a plan to keep your ducts dust-free and efficient. Request air duct service online today.
There are some rooms in your Arkansas house that have their own specific temperature needs. Maybe it is a wine closet or a gaming room. Perhaps it is your bedroom. Maybe it is a room that needs to be cool all the time even when the rest of the house is warm.
With one air conditioning unit controlling your whole house, there is no way to make one room cooler than the others. But with the expanding US ductless system , or mini split, market, a ductless heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is now the easiest and most affordable way to add a separate heating and air conditioning unit to that room.
Mountain Air Cooling & Heating has seen the ductless system market in Fort Smith expand over the last few years with most homeowners adding ductless units to family rooms. Between the TV, video games, and all the people inside laughing and playing, the room can get very stuffy. A mini split system gives the family room its own heating and cooling control so you can always keep that room comfortable.
Do you have a room that needs its own heating and cooling? Call our professional team today at 479-782-4328 and see how affordable extra heating and cooling is for your special room. Request ductless system service online today.
Statistics from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) show 15 percent of all home fires in the United States were caused by malfunctioning heating systems or furnaces. Some of those fires occurred here in Arkansas and, sadly, many of them were preventable.
A gas furnace is a safe and reliable way to keep your Fort Smith home warm. Like every piece of equipment, a gas furnace must be properly maintained to ensure safe and efficient operation. Furnace maintenance includes regular filter changes, furnace repair, and a thorough heat exchanger inspection.
Few homeowners have the tools or the time to keep up with furnace maintenance and should work with a licensed and reputable heating and air conditioning contractor to service their unit. If your heater is well maintained, you can expect it to provide up to 15 years of dependable heating to your home.
Mountain Air Cooling & Heating has years of experience installing and maintaining heater systems. Call 479-782-4328 for an honest assessment of your heater’s condition. Let help resolve any problems so you and your family are safe and your heater in remains in top-notch condition. Request furnace service online today.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
The worldwide geothermal heat pump market is expected to rise to over 6 percent per year by 2024. Homeowners in Arkansas and across the country are opting for high-efficiency geothermal heating and cooling systems as an alternative to their conventional gas or electrical residential units.
A geothermal heat pump rejects and extracts heat from the ground instead of the atmosphere as is done with typical heating and cooling units. Condenser heat is carried through underground pipes from the geothermal heat pump and distributed into the soil a few feet below the surface.
Because the ground is a consistent temperature year-round, the heating and cooling equipment does not have wild swings in outdoor temperature as with air source heat pumps. This consistent soil temperature is one of the ways the geothermal heating system achieves such high operational efficiencies.
Call 479-782-4328 and we can show you some of the geothermal systems Mountain Air Cooling & Heating has installed here in Fort Smith. We would be happy to discuss if a new energy-efficient geothermal heat pump system is right for your home. Request geothermal heat pump service online today.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Saver page advises that a “heat pump can reduce your electricity use for heating by approximately 50 percent compared to electric resistance heating.” That means a heat pump could cut your Arkansas electric heating bill in half!
That is an amazing savings. In cities like Fort Smith that often see utility prices rise in the winter, that is a lot of money back in your pocket each month. Mountain Air Cooling & Heating works with homeowners and small office building managers to calculate the annual savings of replacing their old, electric unit with a new heat pump system.
We walk them through how the different heat pumps on the market affect their installation costs and their long-term savings. For example, if buyers consider mini split heat pumps with very high cooling Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) ratings, the utility savings compared to the old units is even more amazing.
If it is time to replace your existing unit or you need a system for a renovation, let us show you the possible savings. Call us at 479-782-4328 and see what savings are possible for your home. Request heat pump service online today.
Indoor Air Quality
Breathing is something we all take for granted but is absolutely vital to our existence moment to moment. Here in Fort Smith, most of us stay indoors nearly all the time, so the quality of the indoor air we breathe should be important to us. Our team at Mountain Air Cooling & Heating wants to help you be sure your indoor air quality is safe and healthy.
In nearly all indoor environments, dust, off-gassing from paints and carpets, and other pollutants are present in the air we breathe. Sometimes smoke and pet dander can be added to the mix. In most heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, an air filter can remove some of these pollutants. Some Arkansas homeowners may choose to have a high-efficiency HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter to remove even smaller particulates.
Indoor air quality problems may result in discomfort for you and your family or, in some cases, chronic long-term health issues like allergies and asthma. When you have one of our professionals come out and test your indoor air quality, you may discover areas that require remediation. New filtration systems, air purifiers, duct cleaning services, and other solutions may improve your situation.
Call our professionals at Mountain Air Cooling & Heating. Our number is 479-782-4328 and our trained experts are standing by to help remedy poor indoor air quality issues. Request indoor air quality service online today.
Just like your car requires regular oil changes and tire rotations to keep it running smoothly, your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system will work much better if you take care of it on a regular basis. The professionals at Mountain Air Cooling & Heating recommend a biannual maintenance checkup to keep your Fort Smith home comfortable year-round.
The best times to schedule an HVAC maintenance service call are during the spring and fall. These are the seasons when your furnace and air conditioner are probably not in full operation yet, which means they are the perfect times to get them ready for the hot summer or cold winter. In addition, these are the seasons when HVAC professionals are not constantly under the gun with emergency service calls, which allows them to provide excellent service at an affordable price.
When you call your HVAC team in Arkansas, you’ll be getting a complete maintenance package that includes a thorough inspection, cleaning and tune-up. That means all your components will be lubricated, tightened and checked for wear and potential malfunction. In the long-run, this inexpensive service call may save you an expensive emergency repair call, reduce your energy bills, and lengthen the life of your system.
