Time to Schedule Maintenance
Heat Trends and Air Conditioning
We have been telling everyone for a couple months now that the heat would sneak up on you. How’s your air conditioning unit working? It’s June and that means warmer temperatures. Based on June averages, New Mexico can see it’s hottest temperatures of the year at the end of June and beginning of July. Combine that with higher precipitation trends in July and your swamp cooler can’t even keep up. Dirty air conditioning units can reduce efficiency.
June is a time for making sure your equipment is running optimally. If you are running an evaporative cooler, you need to make sure to refresh your pads and make sure connections are clear of mineral build up. Pads need to be getting thoroughly saturated for full cooling potential. Caring for you cooler is a lot of work, schedule routine maintenance with us to stay on top of it.
Refrigerated Air Conditioners
If you really want to keep cool with the smallest amount of work, then you should convert that swamp cooler or upgrade that low efficiency air conditioning unit. Jones Mechanical is your HVAC expert that can walk you through the right unit for your space.
I can’t tell you what a difference it has made since we switched to refrigerated air. We’ve had it a couple years now and besides normal up-keep it has been worry free. It keeps the house right where I want it on a hot day.

For refrigerated air conditioning maintenance, it is recommended that you do an annual check-up. We aim to keep the unit running in optimal condition and maintain it’s energy efficiency. Regular cleaning of your air conditioning compressor and coils is recommended in New Mexico weather conditions. Rio Rancho air conditioning units and air filters collect a lot of dust and require cleaning and replacements. Jones Mechanical annual customers receive an annual check up that includes evaluations and recommendations.
Our check up includes:
- Checking temperature variance between the home’s thermostat and the unit. We don’t want to see energy efficiency go out of wack by 5 degrees and suddenly your electric bill is rising with the temperature.
- Check freon levels. Decline in efficiency can indicate other problems like low freon levels.
- Checking condition of compressor / coils. Regular cleaning to make sure coils are free of dust and debris is recommended.
- Check home for carbon monoxide emissions.
For an additional fee, we will include:
- Complete cleaning of AC Coil and removal of debris from the compressor.
- Clean and evaluate compressor unit.
- Charge Freon if needed.
- Replace air flow filter if appropriate.
Changing your air filter on a regular schedule is highly advised in Rio Rancho’s dust, wind and heat.
