Bio: Being from the Valley of the Sun (Phoenix, AZ) you gain an appreciation for air conditioning.
After seeing my parents taken by one of the many crooked HVAC businesses, I decided to put a stop to it - for life...
I attended trade school and worked in the field to gain the knowledge, insight and learn all the "tricks of the trade."
I now take those years of hot summer experience and help you!!
I worked for the Good, The Bad and the Ugly. I learned more about the shady side of the business than I ever wanted to know.
Now you have access to that info and can use it to make sure you are not a victim.
My personal pledge: I will work on your behalf, to make informed decisions and level the playing field.
Folks, this is why I do it!! I love to hear the success stories:
“My split unit compressor quit firing up. Case was full of ants, I clean them out every summer. I found your site and started troubleshooting. Eliminated all the obvious possibilities, found I wasn't getting low voltage to the contactor. Traced the wiring back to a very elusive looking reset switch/circuit breaker. My air is back on. You saved me some bucks. I would assume it overheated and threw the breaker because of the ants. If not I may be visiting again. Enjoy the beer, you earned it.” John D.
From J. Delgado: “ Recently, my A/C unit stopped running and I had a pretty
good idea that it was a bad start capacitor. However, I needed a bit of hand hooding and encouragement. I called a nearby A/C parts business and spoke to the owner/manager about the
capacitor. Soon, this guy had me replacing 3 capacitors (including the Run cap) along with the contacts. All this was going to cost over $225 just for the parts. I knew this guy
was trying to up sell me and that's when I decided to call Thermal Medics. I described the symptoms to Merritt and he walked me through some trouble shooting and we confirmed that it was the
start capacitor. He also gave me the name of where I could buy the capacitor. The capacitor cost me less than $14.00!”
“I just wanted to add my gratitude to the long list of many others on this site. So, my thanks go out to Thermal Medics, Merritt (and Hondo).”
