Peoria Commercial Air Conditioning
Rising Sun Air provides installation, replacement, repair, maintenance, and service for commercial air conditioning systems throughout the Phoenix metro area.
Air Conditioning Equipment
We maintain working relationships with all major manufacturers to be able to provide replacement equipment that best fits the needs of your job in terms of application, configuration, availability and cost. Also, our personnel have been trained to properly service equipment of ALL manufacturers, so whatever fits your project fits our abilities.
Rising Sun Air, by working with specialty partners as required may accommodate the Heating-Cooling requirements for commercial construction, add-ons, or tenant space improvement including: Design Recommendations; Equipment Supply and Installation; Ductwork Design and Installation; Piping Design and Installation; Electrical Coordination; Start-up, and Warranty. As most new installations require Architectural assistance, the Owner s architect-engineer usually accommodates drawings, Code requirements, Plan Approvals and Fees.
Repair or Replace?
We usually get involved in existing systems when we are contacted to correct a system deficiency in terms of heating or cooling capability. After analyzing a service problem, we advise you of the total cost required to correct the problem prior to your authorization to proceed with the work. Based on our experience we can advise you on the logic of proceeding with the repair or replacing the system.
Light commercial Air Conditioning in Phoenix is usually provided by one of two types of systems.
1. An all electric heat pump system in which both heating and cooling rely
on compressor operation to provide space conditions. It would not be out of
the question for this type equipment to be "on-line" for 3500 hours per year.
2. A gas heat - electric cool system requiring that the compressor operate
only in the cooling mode. This type system would have substantially less
compressor-condenser system wear than would an all-electric system of
equal age & application.
In Phoenix, we have experienced all electric systems operating for twenty years and longer provided the Owner elects to spend the necessary funds to keep them operating. It is more likely that the life span of all electric equipment is ten years for commercial applications, and twelve years for residential applications. In general, we would advise repair of the system if is less than 10 years old, has been trouble free to date, you don't plan to move, and it checks out to have repair costs of below $1000.
We would advise replacement if the equipment is over 10 years old with a history of problems, and repair charges exceeding $1000 annually. New equipment will have further advantages in that it will not use R-22 refrigerant which is in the process of being phased out. Also, new equipment will be built to higher efficiency levels than the equipment being replaced and will provide lower operating costs. The efficiency levels of today's systems may qualify you for Federal Tax credits and possibly power company rebates.
What About SEER?
In the event that you decide that a replacement air conditioning system is in order, you will be exposed to the terms "EER" and "SEER". An understanding of these terms may be helpful in the selection of new A/C equipment.
Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) of a cooling system is the ratio of cooling output in BTU's per Hour (12,000 BTU/Hour = 1 Ton) to the input electrical power in Watts at a standard operating point.
Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is expected overall system performance during the course of a typical year, and is expressed in terms of BTU per Watt-Hour. The greater the SEER, the more efficient the system.
By law, as of January 2006, all central system air conditioning equipment sold in the US must have a minimum SEER of 13. To be "Energy Star" qualified, the SEER must be at least 14.
Considering that prior to 2006, it was possible to purchase equipment having SEER ratings of 10 or lower, replacement of old equipment with equipment of higher SEER ratings should significantly reduce your energy costs. Upgrading a system from a SEER of 9 to a SEER of 13 would reduce power consumption by 30%, which for the typical residence could be a saving of up to $300 annually depending on usage and cost of electricity. (Per Wikipedia).
Air conditioning equipment manufactures recommend that heating equipment be inspected prior to the heating season, and that cooling equipment be inspected prior to the cooling season. In our experience, probably 40% of the emergency service calls we receive could be prevented if the equipment was regularly inspected with service adjustments being made during the course of inspection. The relatively minor preventive maintenance cost would stop problems from becoming P-R-O-B-L-E-M-S, thus avoiding inconvenience, discomfort, and more extensive repair costs.
