Is the Clock Ticking on your AC System?

The summer of 2014 was the hottest on record, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which has been monitoring temperatures since 1880. Given that startling fact, it’s likely that your Phoenix heating and air conditioning took a beating this year.

There’s no telling what next summer will be like but you probably don’t want to risk going through another scorching summer with an air conditioning that is anything but in tip-top shape. But if you’re in the market for a new air conditioning system, how do you know what brands and products are the best?

Only the Best

When selecting a Phoenix heating and air conditioning system to install in your home, it’s best to go with a brand name you know and a manufacturer that’s been in the business for many years.

It’s also important to select a Phoenix air conditioning contractor you can trust. Chas Roberts Air Conditioning & Plumbing, Arizona’s top HVAC company, sells only the best systems on the market and has been doing business in Arizona since 1942. Chas Roberts carries systems from these top manufacturers:

  • Goodman®: Based on sales of units, Goodman Global, Inc. is the second largest domestic manufacturer of residential HVAC products.


  • Carrier®: Since 1902, Carrier has served millions of people and businesses in 172 countries on six continents around the world.


  • Trane®: A world leader in air conditioning systems, their company tagline says it all – “It’s Hard to Stop a Trane®.


  • Amana®: Amana systems are still manufactured in the United States and the company has been recognized many times for producing some of America’s best furnaces.


  • York®: A leading air conditioning, heating, refrigeration, and ventilating company, York has more than 20 worldwide manufacturing facilities and sales offices in over 100 countries.


  • Ruud®: Since the 1950s when Ruud started manufacturing cooling and heating equipment, the company has grown into one of North America’s largest manufacturers of systems for residential use.

You may be thinking that you can get by with just repairing your old, tired system. But, the average life span of an air conditioning unit is 6 to 12 years, so if your system falls in that range, repairing it may just be wasting money, instead of investing that money in a new system. Also, take this into consideration: air conditioning manufacturers have made major improvements in efficiency over the past few years so installing a new system could save you significant money in energy costs.
