Our Monsoon Special!
One of the things about living in the Phoenix area is that almost all of us have seen at least one. Monsoon season officially starts on June 15 and ends on September 30.
Monsoons often begin with a haboob, the dirty windstorms which blast dust and debris through the Valley at speeds up to 100 m.p.h. The haboob often appears as a brown, rolling haze. The wind has been known to knock down trees and power lines, pick up roofs, tip semis, shatter windows, and create a blinding wall of dirt which reduces visibility to zero.
Next comes lightning. Lightning-related deaths claim about one person per year in Arizona, which doesn’t seem like many (unless it’s you), but for every person who dies of a lightning strike, about nine others live with burns, memory problems, etc. In addition to being a danger to people, lightning can travel through metal and wiring, cause fires, and hit trees and cars.
Finally, the rain is usually a torrent of water which hammers down on homes and streets. Since Phoenix soil contains caliche, the soil structure resembles a sinkful of plates: water wants to splash sideways instead of soaking in. As a result, there is a lot of water which doesn’t immediately permeate the dusty ground. Instead, it causes flooding, which washes the dust off of most things.
But what about your HVAC? You know the dust creeps into your house because you can often see or smell it. And, let's face it, family members running in and out of the house to see the storm adds to the dust in your home, too.
Dust particles can creep in through the condenser and the house. Fortunately, if you’ve kept up with the maintenance of your air filter by replacing it every month, you’ve got a good handle on it. But, dust is a sneaky Pete and finds its way into everything eventually.
In light of all of this, Affordable Comfort is offering a fabulous special which includes the tuneup and a free drain flush for $39. Getting a tuneup now will ensure that everything is in good working order before the severe heat, humidity, and monsoons set in.
Your air conditioner doesn’t just cool the air; it also dehumidifies it. The water from the humidity flows out the drain, either by force of gravity or a condensate pump. A drain flush will clean out all of the muck and even algae which may have accumulated in the drain pipe. Unfortunately, if the pipe becomes blocked with gunk, the pipeline will clog, and the water won’t drain. The water can back up and result in flooding, which can have some nasty ramifications, depending on where its located in the home.
If you want to take advantage of this limited-time offer, give us a call. We can make sure your HVAC is working correctly can that your drain is debris-free. Call (602) 574-1205 and schedule now!
