Energy Saving Tip:
Every year in the Arizona desert we have that time between winter and summer when it's hot during the day and cold at night.
One way to take advantage of those colder night temperatures is to open up your windows or doors (if you have security measures in place such as locking windows and security screen doors), then turn on your (fan on) at the thermostat so it will draw in all of that cold air goodness and distribute it throughout your home. Then sometime in early or late morning you can close your windows/doors to trap the cold air inside.

Service Call: Customer states that he just started his ac up because we've had some warmer days of late (especially for trailer homes), and that the air conditioner is not blowing cool air.
Air Conditioner Repair Mesa: The first thing I noticed was that the blower motor and condenser fan motor were running, but the compressor was not. This was a package ac unit sitting on the ground with half of the unit (the air handler portion and access panels) all sitting under the trailer. After removing the trailers panels to access the ac compartments main electrical control panel, I proceeded to check the compressor run capacitor to make sure that it had the proper microfarads.
More times than not, when a compressor isn't running it's due to a faulty capacitor. However, although this capacitor was 30 years old (as old as the unit), it was checking out to be as good as new. So I reached in to feel the compressor and noticed that it was hot to the touch. So I cooled it down with a water hose and it started right up.
Now that the compressor was running I put my ac guages on the unit and noticed that it was extremely low on freon R22. Low freon can cause the compressor to overheat and then it will shut down with its I.P. (Internal Protector).
I explained to the customer his repair options of simply charging the unit with refrigerant (no warranty) or checking for a leak and doing a leak repair (with warranty). Customer opted for just adding freon.
While charging the unit I noticed a leak at the service valve. A simple tightening of the schrader valve and cap resolved this leak.
Unit operates normally with possible freon leak in system.
Service Call: Customer says that he needs a refrigerant charge every couple of years and that the ac company that he has used over the years is too expensive. His neighbor recommended us as an affordable alternative and that was why he was calling.
Air Conditioner Repair Mesa: His air conditioner was low on freon. I advised him of the option to do a freon leak repair, along with removing the expensive and ever increasing cost of R22 freon (because they're no longer making it), and replacing it with a R412A (a more affordable alternative freon). Customer declined and just wanted to add some refrigerant. Unit operates normally along with a small freon leak.
Service Call: Customer wants swamp cooler serviced.
Swamp cooler maintenance:
This was a very old unit that had a bad float valve and busted/worn out bearings and shaft. Because of the rust and the amount of repair work involved, I advised the customer to have a new cooler installed.
Service Call: Customer states that they had a short at their main breaker (that they already had resolved) and ever since the air conditioner hasn't worked.
Upon arrival and turning the thermostat to cool on this Lennox system, it was noticed that nothing was coming on as though there was no power. After doing a complete (off system) inspection, a time delay cartridge fuse was found to be blown. After replacing the fuse, the unit started and amps were measured during start up and during normal run time. Everything checked out okay. Many times when a fuse blows, their is an underlying cause for the fuse blowing. It could be a short somewhere in the system, loose connections, or it could be a motor that is over amping. However, in this case the problem was just a fuse gone bad.
Service Call: Customer stated that his heater works only for a short while, turns off, and then back on again.
Furnace Repair: Upon inspection, it was found that the limit safety switch on this gas furnace was triggering to shut the unit down due to higher than normal temperatures. The high temperatures were caused by restricted airflow, and the low airflow was caused by an extremely dirty air filter.
Changing the air filter with a new one solved his problem.
Service Call: Customer say that the air conditioner is not cooling or blowing any air on one side of his church.
Air Conditioner Repair Mesa: After doing a complete inspection on the air conditioning unit, it was found that the ac was working fine, but their wasn't any air coming out of the registers. So after gaining access to the attic, and feeling a nice cool breeze up their, the duct work was inspected and found that the supply duct had fell off and the air conditioner was cooling the attic. Re attached the duct work and unit operates normally.
Service Call: Customer says that he's had two other air conditioning companies out and they both insisted that he replace his 25 year old air conditioner because its leaking freon and its at the end of its useful life. However, he also explained his unique situation in that he was a snow bird and hardly ever used his air conditioner because he was usually leaves Arizona before it gets too hot and he just wanted to fix it cause he feels that he can get another 25 years out of it due to its little use.
Air Conditioner Repair Mesa: After diagnosing the customers a/c, I found that it was almost completely out of refrigerant and found a small leak at the high pressure valve and a medium sized leak at the suction line valve, replaced the valves and charged the system with freon. Unit cools and operates normally.
Cooler Inspection: Customer says that their evaporative cooler has a burning smell and needs it checked out.
Swamp Cooler Repair: The cooler motor was working but smoking and drawing the smoke into the living space. Their were signs of hard water deposits all over the motor. Motor needed to be replaced and water supply reduced by pinching off the water supply tube to reduce its flow. It was recommended to replace the pump with a lower CFM rated water pump correctly sized for this particular unit but customer declined and opted for the pinch. I see this all the time in the field, people just throwing in water pumps with any cfm rating instead of properly sizing it to their unit.
Service Call: Customer says that they had someone out during the winter to service their heater and the company added refrigerant to their unit, but it didn't make any difference. So with triple digit summers coming they wanted a different company to check out the air conditioner side.
Air Conditioner Repair: This was a package heat pump unit on the ground serving a trailer home in east valley Mesa. At first glance with gauges attached it appeared that the unit was low on refrigerant because the pressures were low and the system had a low temperature split of about 12 degrees, but after inspecting the coils it was found that the insulation on the door panel was about 90% loose and wrapping itself around one side of the blower housing. The insulation at the top of the blower housing was also about 50% loose and hanging down. So I applied some spray adhesive and re-attached the insulation to the door and ceiling of the unit.
Suddenly, the pressures came way up and it was now clear that the unit was slightly over charged. So I bled some refrigerant out but it wasn't effecting the pressures. So I went inside the home to do readings again between the return and supply air only to find that their wasn't any air coming out of the vents at all this time. So I opened a couple panels at the bottom of the trailer near the air conditioner only to feel a nice blast of cold air coming from the supply vent that had completely detached itself.
So I shut the unit down, re-attached the ductwork with a large zip tie and duct tape, and fired the unit back up. Bled a little more refrigerant from the system, re-checked the temperature split, and the unit is now working like a champ.
Usually when an air conditioner isn't working correctly.......I'd say about 90-95% of the time.......there's only one (1) problem. This unit happened to have three (3) problems, had my head spinning and kept me on my toes the entire time.
Service Call: Customer says that both of her pvc pipes are dripping water and her neighbor says that only the bottom one should drip and wants it checked out.
Air Conditioner Repair Mesa: Upon arrival I immediately went into the attic, cut the primary drain line, and blew nitrogen through the line. However, I didn't feel any resistance and nothing of significance came out. So I re-sealed the drain line and proceeded to check the refrigerant levels. They were low enough for the unit to make ice at the air handler. This ice can build up wide enough to where it exceeds the width of the primary drain pan and, once the unit shuts down the ice will melt into both the primary and secondary drain lines. Refrigerant was added to system, small leak at suction valve was tightened, and air conditioner performs normally.

Honest Air Conditioner Repair
by Ethel Duplisea
Bradley was recommended to me by a family member. It was one of the best reommendations I have received in some time. A/C Handyman is on time, proffesional and charges a fair price. Thank you Bradley.
Quick and Excellent Service
My A/C wasn't blowing cool, so I called at 7:00 am on a Friday. He showed up at 8:30 (when he said he would BTW) the same day! Added freon, and didn't try any hard sell tactics. Would highly recommend his services.
Delivered on his Promises
by John Birch
I saw Bradley's company in a comparison against most all the other Hvac companies in my area... while others sounded good, I was not impressed with what customers wrote about their service and fairness on pricing.... I think Bradley is extremely honest and you really do get pricing that is half of the other HVAC companies... Nice! Bradley is also the owner which I like. Nothing like dealing directly with the person that owns the business that you are buying from!!
by Leah Vega
We have two air conditioning units in our home, and every year before the hot weather hits we like to get our air conditioning units serviced to make sure they are working in the most optimum condition. The gentleman that came out to service our units was very courteous and professional. I will definitely be using this company in the future for all of my a/c service needs.
Fair, Honest, and Responsive
I called Brad early sunday AM. By 10:00 AM, the air was cold and I was relieved not to have a ridiculous bill. I have had some bad experiences with AC companies in the past but his timeliness, friendly manner, and fair prices were a huge relief. Brad's my AC guy from now on... thanks Brad!
Found my AC guy! Thanks
by John Shumway

I do IT consulting on my own so I thought that there must be smaller companies with hard working honest guys around that do AC work. Google brought up Bradley's web page, and actually read the testimonials and thought I would give him a shot. Bradley came and diagnosed the problem to be a motor, he spent an hour making sure, and returned after obtaining the part and finishing up the other work he had scheduled that day which ended up being 11:00pm to replace it so my family could get some sleep. NO WAY would a large company have come that late, at least not without extreemly heavy fees. Thanks for the fair price and Excellent service!

Excellent Service and Knowledge
by Randall Thompson
(La Habra, CA)
I live in California and own a rental in Mesa, Az. I have used Brad as my A/C guy for a few years now because he is always there when I need him and I feel that he is honest and upfront with all details of the job. He knows A/C repair very well and gets right to the problem. Being from out-of-state I feel vulnerable to unreputable servicemen. I feel lucky to have found Brad.
