AC Companies Who Advertise “…we do Plumbing“
SEND PLUMBERS DISGUISED AS A/C TECHNICIANS!
Do you want plumbers fixing your Air Conditioning?
– Of course not –
INFORMED PEOPLE CANNOT BE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF
AC Companies Who Advertise “We Do Plumbing“
SEND PLUMBERS DISGUISED AS AC TECHNICIANS!
Do you really want a plumber fixing your expensive AC system?
– Of course not –
At Sun State HVAC all we do is Air Conditioning & Heating Service Repair & Installation and Commercial Refrigeration Service & Repair and we’re experts at it!
A wise person might say, let auto mechanics be auto mechanics, doctors be doctors, plumbers be plumbers and AC Technicians be AC Technicians!
Make no mistake, if you need an AC repair company and the vehicle that arrives at your home has the word PLUMBING anywhere on it, BATTEN THE HATCHES AND LOCK THE DOORS because chances are the person driving that vehicle is not an expert Air Conditioning Specialist.
When it comes to the difference between a Plumber and a qualified HVAC Technician, the facts are AC Technicians and Plumbers are not cut from the same cloth. Each have different mental attitudes, drives and focus. Continue Reading...
WHAT ABOUT FREE SERVICE CALLS!
News Flash – There’s No Such Thing!
The amount of calls we get telling us that they saw another company advertise FREE SERVICE CALL only to find out that that FREE service was not exactly free at all is astonishing. In fact not only are those service calls not free, they are dang expensive especially considering these companies charge up to 10X or more for the same needed repairs as Sun State HVAC!
Example: About a week ago we received a call from a new customer that found us through word of mouth and right off the bat they asked a question: How much would you (Sun State HVAC) charge me to come out to my home and replace my 40 amp two circuit contactor including the service call?
Since we had no other information to go on we simply answered the question explaining, if nothing else was needed the full charge would be in the vicinity of $175 – $225 depending on the time needed to replace it and type of part it was etc. Suddenly there was a shriek on the other end of the phone exclaiming, the AC company she just called out wanted 10 TIMES MORE to do the same exact job! She went on to ask why a company like that would do such a thing, after all the boss wears such a nice Cowboy hat and THEY DO PLUMBING TOO!
It is because they know offering a FREE or cheap $39 – $49 Tune-up check will get them into thousands of homes and once their in they first attempt to sell a new unit and if that fails they’ll inflate repair charges to pay for their EXPENSIVE ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS for the privilege of getting into the homes of as many customers as possible.
Once they do they push highly inflated prices to not only pay for that supposedly FREE service call but also line their pockets several times over and then RINSE AND REPEAT.
Lately there’s been one of those bigger area marketing junkie – we do it all including plumbing AC companies – advertising “no extra charges for nights, weekends or holidays.”
Now let me ask you, do you honestly believe this? The reason they advertise this is because they triple charge for all their regular services too IF you’re lucky enough to get them to repair your AC instead of pushing a replacement in place of repair. In other words their REAL RATE IS MUCH GREATER FOR ALL SERVICES ALL THE TIME once they get in your home!
Dear friends, don’t be a statistic! Never use a company that pays full page advertisements, TV, Radio spots and basically everywhere you are you see or hear about them. And never call an AC company that advertises WE DO PLUMBING SERVICE or ANY OTHER SERVICE other than AC, HEATING OR OTHER COOLING Services or offers and “deals” so cheap it’s simply too good to be true unless of course you want be overcharged and taken advantage for those services just to pay for their exorbinate advertising expenses.
AC - HAVC - HVACR
We’d like to try and clear some of up the confusion regarding terms used to describe services in the world of Air Conditioning and Refrigeration, namely the usage of AC, HVAC and HVAC-R.
1) AC is the most widely used term most people already know of and of course stands for Air Conditioning. AC is the standard method developed to cool a living space using electromechanical processes to remove heat, humidity and as a secondary benefit, air dust particles. Even though AC is the literal acronym for Air Conditioning, it also encompasses Heating and Ventilation. This term is widely used in all the residential, commercial and Air Conditioning fields.
This is the method most widely used to provide a comfortable air-conditioned space. There are also other methods of providing air conditioned space (such as solar), but these methods are not widely available to the public yet.
2) HVAC Is also a widely used term which is basically synonymous with AC above. This term takes the above AC description and adds the prefix HV (which stands for Heating and Ventilation) making it Heating, Ventilating & Air Conditioning. This term is also widely used in all the residential, commercial and Air Conditioning fields.
HVAC-R (or HVACR) – Is the same as the previously described HVAC but adds the suffix R and is sometimes separated from the HVAC body by a hyphen – thus making it appear HVAC-R. The R stands for Refrigeration and in almost all cases suggests restaurant along with HVAC service. Therefore, HVAC-R has the meaning of “Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration” service.
Sun State HVAC is an HVAC-R company and always has been. So when you call Sun State HVAC be assured we can handle pretty much anything you throw at us that needs serviced, repaired or replaced be it residential homes and refrigeration or restaurant refrigeration needs.
It is a well-known fact that summer temperatures in our ‘Valley of the Sun’ often soar above 115 deg F and often cross above the 120 deg F area! This kind of heat can feel devastating to those who have never experienced it before and many valley residents even experience forms of anxiety as a result.
Winters in the area are for the most part quite mild. Because of this newcomers to the Phoenix area valley often don’t realize how important it is to have a properly maintained well-operating air conditioning system until the summer hits and we get the seasons first really hot weekend. Read More…
Sun State HVAC has been the forerunner in HVAC maintenance services since it’s inception in 1979. In fact, we practically invented the whole HVAC preventative maintenance process before a few other companies even realized the importance and value of HVAC maintenance to the customer. Because of the bigger companies greedy focus on unit sales, they often use high dollar advertising to pull unsuspecting customers into sales funnels and then create sales tactics to close high dollar sales deals.

Properly maintained AC units can last a very long time but as the old saying goes – nothing lasts forever.
When the time comes to replace your existing AC, Sun State HVAC has the highest qualifications and can install most any brand available for you. But how do you know it is time to replace an existing older unit? There are several factors involved in making this decision but to make it as simple as possible here are a few checkpoints we look for. Read More…

Heating, Air, Refrigeration and HVAC repair, that’s all we do at Sun State HVAC and we are experts at it. A wise man will say, let auto mechanics be auto mechanics; doctors be doctors; plumbers be plumbers, and HVAC technicians be HVAC technicians!

This is not in any way to imply that either is better than the other but to shine a light on the obvious truth that each profession requires a completely different mental focus and drive. Read More…
Restaurant Service HVAC & Refrigeration has been the backbone of Sun State HVAC since its inception.
The reason is that Sun State HVAC restaurant service was literally born as a direct result of the founders 25 years of restaurant operations background by way of being born to parents who owned and operated a Phoenix AZ family delicatessen, restaurant and fresh meat business for 52 years.
