As many of you probably already know, my father and founder of Willow Park Air, Tom, passed away after a battle with cancer in early February.

I am incredibly grateful to have had him as a boss all these years and for the opportunity to learn under him for nearly two decades. My dad officially created Willow Park Air in 1996 while still employed at Lockheed Martin. I started working for him in 2003, starting off as a basic helper. Over the next 18 years, we had the pleasure of being a father and son team, giving our customers a unique offering of skilled service coupled with a small, family owned business vibe.

Now that he is gone, I have to look to my future and do what's best for my customers, as well as myself. After much deliberation, I have decided to allow Willow Park Air to merge with Burke Mechanical, another trusted HVAC company serving the same area of operation. I will be working for them as a service technician and they are committed to allowing me to continue serving my customers just as I would under the banner of Willow Park Air. The service and honest approach to things will not change, but only improve with the support of a fully established company behind me.

The transition will happen this Monday. My cell number will be the same, so never hesitate to call me directly, or call Burke's office for scheduling. If you call the office, be sure to tell them you're a Willow Park Air customer!

The contact info for Burke Mechanical will be in the first comment of this post. I look forward to continuing to be your HVAC and refrigeration guy. Give us a call today!

Information for Homeowners and Consumers | Phaseout of Ozone-Depleting Substances | US EPA

If you own a house or business with central air conditioning, especially systems that are older than about 5 years, you should educate yourself on the phaseout of HCFC-22 refrigerant, commonly known as R-22 and often referred to as "freon".

If you own a system that uses this refrigerant, as a majority of people with central AC do, this directly affects you. The EPA is forcing the HVAC industry to 'phase-out' R-22 due to it being an ozone depleting chemical as well as a green house gas. The refrigerant that is replacing it as the industry standard is R-410a.

Where this can become a huge headache for homeowners is if their equipment either has the compressor fail or has a system form a refrigerant leak. Due to this phaseout, either one of these scenarios can lead to a homeowner having no option but to replace the entire system. For the most part, R22 equipment is no longer being made and the price of refrigerant has increased by about 300% from about 4 years ago and gets more expensive everyday. I have hear rumors that by next year it will be twice as expensive as it is today. There are HVAC companies out there charging 100$ a pound (Our current price is 80$/lb). So, obviously, adding more R22 to a system with a leak has become astronomically expensive as systems hold anywhere from 4 to 20 pounds of refrigerant.

The link included is straight from the EPA. Anyone with questions can contact me.

Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) are chemicals that are mainly used as refrigerants. To protect the Earth’s protective ozone layer, the United States is phasing out a common refrigerant known as HCFC-22 (also known as R-22), along with other chemicals.

Don't let the heat bring you down! Let us help your AC and refrigeration be the best it can be!

06/25/2012

It's officially hot. How's the air conditioning holding up?

04/25/2012

Starting to get warm out there...

04/03/2012

The price of R22 refrigerant has doubled in the last month. If you have ever had to add refrigerant to you system because of a leak... it just got twice as expensive to simply recharge your system.

This is due to the phaseout of 22 and the recent move by the EPA to speed up this phaseout and greatly reduce the amount of 22 that can be produced. That is why the price went up, supply and demand.

So, if you know you have a system with a refrigerant leak, the price of maintaining your equipment just doubled. The only alternative is to locate and fix the leak (this is usually not an option, as most leaks form in the evaporator coil and can not be repaired) or replace the entire system with a total cost of around 6-8000 dollars. (new systems use R410a refrigerant).

The EPA's intentions are good(R22 is very damaging when it escapes into the atmosphere), but the end effect is many people will not be able to afford to maintain their systems as they have been over the years.

82° tomorrow. Time for some open windows.

02/10/2012

Down in the twenties the next couple of nights. High of 40° tomorrow. Time for some real winter.

01/13/2012

It's downright cold outside. Hope it's warm, wherever you may be.

12/21/2011

The holidays are upon us and Christmas is just a few days away. If you're one of the many families hosting out of towners for the holidays, please keep in mind that heaters will quit on you at the worst possible time. So, if you've been putting off a check up or know your heaters got an issue, have that thing checked out soon. Getting them fixed on Christmas Day can be tricky.

11/26/2011

We've had it pretty nice this last month with some fairly mild weather. Things look to be cooling down this week, though. If you haven't been running your heater much, as a lot of people haven't, make sure you give it a good test run while we're still ahead of the real winter weather (as short as it may be) yet to come.

11/04/2011

If I asked you if your home had a 'Heat Pump', would you know what to say? (No, this isn't the start of a dirty joke) If you know that your system is indeed a heat pump, do you know, at least on a basic level, what it does?

A heat pump is just an AC in reverse that heats your house using the outdoor unit. They are much more efficient in milder winter climates than standard electric or gas. However, if you do have one, you need to be aware that it's there and know what signs of trouble to look for. If your heat pump fails in the heating mode, it's more than likely not going to cool in the summer months and could costs thousands of dollars to repiar. By simply being aware of its presence, many problems can be avoided.

10/27/2011

44° tonight!

10/22/2011

Heaters can be troublesome as you try to start running them when the first cold weather hits, usually due to them sitting unused for months. This can be especially true of gas heaters. If you haven't already, while it's still pleasent outside, turn on the heat and let it run until you can feel the warm air.

10/12/2011

Cooler weather is around the corner. How's your heater working?

08/22/2011

There are lots of different kinds of air filters that you can find for your system, but we reccomend just one type: Standard pleated filters. Bewarre of washable filters , marketing terms like "hypoallergenic", or ones sporting high MIRV rating. While such filters are better than no filter, using these types will stress the system, making it prone to "freeze up". Plus, they are usually much more expensive than normal, pleated filters.

08/18/2011

One thing I can't stress enough, if you set your thermostat pretty low, chances are, it's not going to shut off. A system that rarely gets to shut off and breath is going to fail. If you notice your system running for hours on end, it might appreciate it if you bump the set point up a couple of degrees... and you might appreciate not having to spend a lot of money fixing something that could have been avoided.

07/01/2011

It's looking like it might be a rough summer. Are you sure your air conditioner is running and running well? Remember, when you look at your monthly electric bill, your air conditioner is a huge part of what you see. Imagine if you left 40 or so 60w lightbulbs on all day. A 65$ service call can go a long way.

06/14/2011

One thing to keep in mind in regards to your air conditioner: If you have ever had to have refrigerant (Freon) added to your system, it has a leak. Once you discover you have a leak, it is important you keep the system serviced. Just because your system appears to be cooling the house doesn't mean it's doing it well.

05/12/2011

The last few days have been pretty nice. Wet, maybe, but altelast it's been cooler. June is a little over two weeks away, though... Get that AC checked out before the hot sets in.

What You Should Know about Refrigerants When Purchasing or Repairing a Residential A/C System or.

So, unless you have a system that is younger than around 5 years, it most likely uses a refrigerent known as R22. Due to the fact that is very bad for our atmosphere, this refrigerent is being phased out and being replaced by a less corrosive one known as R-410a. As of 2010, no new eqiupment may be produced that uses R22.

In 1987 the Montreal Protocol, an international environmental agreement, established requirements that began the worldwide phaseout of ozone-depleting CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons). These requirements were later modified, leading to the phaseout in 1996 of CFC production in all developed nations. I

Do you have a retail, restaurant, or other type of commercial space? Your business can run into a bit of a rough spot if your HVAC system goes down. Good news, however: We also do light commercial work!

If you've ever had a service tech tell you that they had to put refrigerent, or "freon" into your system because of a leak, you're not alone. It's a common problem for AC systems. 9 times out of 10, the leak forms in the evaperator coil, also known as the indoor coil... and in most of those cases, it's due to something known as formicary corrosion. Here's some reading to explain what that is, exactly.

Got a question about your HVAC system? Please, by all means, ask us! We love to talk about this stuff informing yourself is crucial to your equipment's survival. Why not? As of right now question's are still free.

03/30/2011

Spring is upon us! Have you had your AC serviced in the last few years? Now is the perfect time to do just that. Just because your AC turns on and runs doesn't mean it working correctly. Many things that go wrong with AC's aren't apparent until the damage is already done. Don't leave it to chance, a service call won't cost you more than 75 dollars and could save you thousands. And... Change those filters!

01/31/2011

Winter is about to slap us in the face here in North Texas for a few days. Remember, if the roads get bad, it may be hard for us and most other service companies to get around, just like everyone else. If you think you might have a problem, make that call now before it gets bad.

10/06/2010

Don't forget to turn on that heater and make sure it runs before you need it. Finding out you have a heater that doesn't heat is no fun when it's cold. I also love working in this weather.

09/20/2010

It's still pretty warm outside, but cooler weather is right around the corner. Haven't had your system checked in a few years? Don't get left out in the cold... get that thing checked out so you know you'll be cozy all winter long.

XL20i Ultra Efficiency Air Conditioning & Air Conditioner Units : Trane Residential

We have been installing quite a few of these since they came out with them, and we really like them. They cost mroe upfront, but dang are they efficient, and you can barely tell the system is running even when standing right next to it.

See our line up of ultra efficiency air units. Read more about air products from Trane Residential.

If you have a central AC system that at some point in the past has had to have freon added to it, chances are it is low again. Just because it seems to be cooling doesn't always mean it isn't low, it may just have to run all day to achieve cooling. A proper refrigerent charge is vital to your comfort and to your system's health, and can greatly effect your energy consumption.

05/06/2010

Summer is almost here. Remember that a simple checkup of your air conditioning system can lead to big savings on your electric bill through the summer months, not to mention help keep you more comfortable. Don't wait until it's 100° outside!

Texas Powerful Smart

To anyone out there who may be wanting to replace an old unit with something new and efficient but need some help, that help is here. Money from the stimulus package has been devided up between the states, and Texas got $23,000,000.

This is in addition to the federal tax rebate detailed in the prior post. Only catch is you have to be lucky enough to either get through via the telephone or the website on April 16. The 23 million will go fast... some are saying 10 minutes, so you need to have a good bit of time to try and get through and reserve your aid money.

This is an very good deal, even more so if you can qualify for the $1500 tax rebate.

As always, Willow Park Air would love to help you out!
