Keeping Cool in the Desert Heat

It’s another scorching day in Tucson, Arizona, but for the team at Temperature Control, Inc., it’s just another day on the job. As an HVAC technician, my role is to ensure that our customers can beat the desert heat and stay comfortable in their homes and businesses.

Morning Routine

My day starts early, around 6 AM, as I prepare my tools and check the schedule for the day’s appointments. The first stop is a residential home in Casas Adobes for an AC repair. The homeowner has reported that their air conditioning unit is not cooling properly, and it’s my job to diagnose and fix the issue.

Troubleshooting and Repairs

Upon arrival, I greet the customer and get to work. After a thorough inspection, I discover that the problem lies with a faulty compressor. I explain the issue to the homeowner and provide them with a quote for the repair. With their approval, I get to work, replacing the compressor and ensuring that the system is running efficiently.

Preventive Maintenance

My next stop is a commercial building in Catalina Foothills for an air conditioner service. Here, I perform routine maintenance checks to ensure that the system is operating at peak performance. This includes:

  • Cleaning or replacing air filters
  • Checking refrigerant levels
  • Inspecting electrical components
  • Lubricating moving parts

Preventive maintenance is crucial to extend the lifespan of HVAC systems and avoid costly breakdowns during the hottest months.

Installation and Customer Satisfaction

My final stop of the day is in Oro Valley, where a new home is being constructed. The builders have hired us for an air conditioning installation. I work closely with the team to ensure that the system is properly sized for the home and installed according to code and manufacturer specifications.

As the day comes to an end, I take pride in knowing that I’ve helped numerous customers stay comfortable and energy-efficient. It’s a rewarding feeling to be a part of the Temperature Control, Inc. team, providing top-notch HVAC services to the Tucson community.
