Thieves caught on tape!

Who you gonna call? NOT ghostbusters! Call Access Heating & Air- 208-855-2444

We may get some calls for situations like this one…

Thieves caught on video!

A man and his accomplice, a pregnant woman, stop by a commercial building at 5:30 am in broad daylight to steal an air conditioning unit. The “get away car” was mostly a hassle since they spent over 11 minutes trying to fit the unit in.  After trying the backseat to no avail, the man decides to try the trunk. This is the point at which his pregnant accomplice gets involved.  She helps him figure out how to get it to fit in the trunk.

Was it a crime of convenience or one of desperation? Is it true that people are willing to haul an entire AC unit off to sell for parts? What would you do if you came outside and your unit installed by heating and cooling experts was just…missing?  Can you imagine your service technician walking into your backyard to find an empty cement pad where your unit had once been?  Exposed wires and copper pipe dangling, freeon seeping into your grass, is there protocol for this!? I may just have to shop around for a cage to keep my unit in!

What would you do?? First, call the police and then call your heating and air company to verify everything is safe until further repairs can be made.

With the price of copper and rare materials and metals on the rise these days, this is becoming more of a concern for our Boise and Meridian residents. Though firm numbers are not necessarily available, thieves can sometimes net $100 to $200 for copper stolen from an air conditioning unit. For the most part, police collectively believe the culprits are usually petty criminals looking for some quick money. Those who are arrested are often charged with burglary or larceny, depending upon the circumstances of the theft, and face fines, probation, or several years in jail. In the long run, most people can be reimbursed through homeowner’s insurance, but often must pay a deductible. Call us today to see what preventative measures you can take NOW before your a/c ends up in someone’s car!

The old adage- don’t judge a book by it’s cover rungs true for cooling systems too.

New air conditioners are more energy efficient and the way higher efficiency I achieved is by more surface area on the outdoor system. More surface area allows better transfer of heat.

Both of these units are the same exact cooling capacity! Believe it or not! The air conditioner on the right is more than 60% efficient than the one in the left.

We are the air conditioner experts in Boise. We also are the air conditioner experts in Boise and Meridian.

These small lil buggers…

Ever had your furnace go out? Haven’t we all?! Well instead of cussing, why not try this simple idea?

What about this- the furnace kicks on and then off in about 2 seconds, and cycles through until it just seems to quit altogether… As the heating repair experts in Boise and Meridian, we want to give you an inside tip. SAVE YOUR MONEY! Clean this little steel rod with some steel wool (#000-ultra fine) and reinstall it. It will take you less than 5 minutes.

Steps to complete this repair yourself:

1. Locate the flame sensor. Usually on the far left or far right side of the burner box/chamber.

2. Remove the screw(s) holding it in.

3. Polish and resurface.

4. Reinstall.

5. Admire your skills! And how much you just saved.
