Wine Cooler Not Working? 5 Reasons Why How to Fix It

Whether you collect rare wines or you just like drinking it, the best way to store your collection is to keep the bottles in a wine cooler. This is especially true in the Phoenix area, where temperatures can reach triple digits. A wine cooler keeps wines at the perfect temperature and humidity levels so they can be enjoyed for years to come. It can be detrimental to your wine if you are experiencing wine cooler temperature problems. There could be numerous reasons why your fridge is not working, and it is important to take care of it as soon as possible. The first thing to understand is there are two different types of wine coolers. One type uses a thermoelectric system to control the temperature. The other type uses a compressor system. Knowing which system you have will help determine the problem. If you do not know which type you have, contact Accutemp, and someone will help you right away. Thermoelectric Cooler Issues 1. Improper Room Temperature When you have thermoelectric wine cooler problems, the room temperature may be the issue. This type of cooler does not maintain a cool temperature as effectively as the compressor systems do. The ideal…read more →

Air Conditioner Maintenance Checklist

People who live in Phoenix understand the importance of a functioning air conditioner. In order for one to not only function properly but also have an extended life, regular maintenance needs to happen. It is important to follow an air conditioner maintenance checklist to avoid expensive repairs or even replacement. Do-It-Yourself Checklist for Air Conditioning Maintenance To keep your air conditioning unit running at its best, it is a good idea to follow this AC checklist during the high-temperature season. ● Inspect AC unit: On a monthly basis, take a good look at the outdoor unit. Check for intact insulation and make sure everything looks in order. ● Maintain air filters: The filter allows air to flow efficiently through the system. High use, dust and pet hair can build up dirt and debris faster than average. Inspect the air filter every month and clean it or replace it when necessary. This helps the air conditioner run easier, and it helps cut down on energy costs. ● Keep outdoor unit free from debris: It is important to keep the area around the outdoor unit clean and unobstructed. Trim or take away bushes, branches, or other foliage that is covering the unit….read more →

My Air Conditioner Isn’t Cooling the House, Why?

Phoenix, Arizona, is well known for having extremely high temperatures. It can get very heated, especially in the summer, and having a working air conditioner is imperative. With the AC not cooling properly, it can get a little too hot. There are many reasons why an air conditioner is not keeping the house as cool as it should, or worse, not at all. It is important to find an AC service company in Phoenix that is adept at diagnosing a variety of issues and knows how to fix them quickly. Potential AC Problems Whether your cooling system is blowing warm air or is not working at all, it may be caused by a variety of things. Some may require AC repair from professionals to get it working properly again. 1. Dirty filter or cooling coils Over time, dirt builds up on the air filter, and this restricts the amount of air that the system can cool. This can also affect the indoor and/or outdoor coils of the air conditioner. This prevents the coils from being able to transfer indoor heat to the outdoors, and as a result, only warm air will come out of the vents. HVAC professionals recommend replacing…read more →

“Winter is Coming” Phoenix Style

The thermostat has finally dipped, and is holding. We made it through yet another Valley of the Sun summer. While for us, your AccuTemp Team, this is a bittersweet moment, we know this is the time of year we remember why we live here. Can’t shovel sunshine, right?  So, with that in mind, how do we prepare for the cooler temps? We have a guide for you, of course. Check these Phoenix Winter tips below to insure your Heating is in order for the coming months.  Change your air filter. If you have a disposable filter, remove the old one and insert a clean replacement. If your filter is reusable, wash it according to the manufacturer’s directions and allow it to dry entirely before reinserting it into the filter compartment. 
 Inspect all registers and return air grilles in your home to ensure they have not been blocked or shut. These vents should never be blocked, as doing so will restrict airflow through your HVAC systems, which could create performance issues and system overheating. 
Move all carpets and rugs, furniture, and other items away from vents. Check to see that vent louvers are open; if you wish to shut off…read more →

Sounds crazy, but now is the time to prep that Furnace.

Now that we are finally feeling some cooler temps, its time to make sure your furnace is ready to provide your home with ample heating performance. There are plenty of things you can do to prepare your furnace this winter: Make sure you check and change your furnace filter. This is the most important, yet most overlooked aspect of preparing your furnace for the coming winter. A clogged furnace filter can easily hamper your furnace’s overall performance and lower your home’s indoor air quality. You should always replace your old filter with a new, clean filter at the start of each season. Check and properly set your thermostat. Make sure your thermostat is able to start your furnace without any issues. If you haven’t upgraded to a programmable thermostat, now is the time to do so. With a programmable thermostat, you’ll be able to control your home’s temperature while you’re asleep or away. Check the flue for debris and other obstructions. Take a look at the flue and make sure there’s no significant soot buildup. Also be on the lookout for leaves, birds’ nests and other debris that could cause a fire hazard while your furnace is in operation. Inspect and clean the…read more →

Protecting Our Employees and Customers

As our employees interact with customers and the general public, we have taken steps to limit exposure to the virus. We have put restrictions on travel, are postponing large-scale events, limiting the size of meetings, providing remote-work solutions, and continue to reinforce safe behavior in every environment – from customer homes and businesses to our office, where we have ramped up deep-cleaning. We are partnering with manufacturers to source as many sanitizers and protective supplies as possible and are prioritizing distribution to our employees. They will sanitize their hands and will be wearing personal protective equipment when interacting with customers; including masks, gloves, and shoe covers. Additionally, we have protocols in place that activate closures, disinfection and appropriate quarantine procedures based on recommendations by government and health agencies.

Assisting Our Employees

We are in continuous communication with our employees reminding them about the importance of good hygiene, providing them with health education and support whenever needed. Employees who feel ill have been told to not report to work and we have specific quarantine and communication procedures in place should an employee be diagnosed with COVID-19 or is asked to self-isolate by a public health authority, and to provide comprehensive benefits to support them.

What We Ask of You
