You Need AC Maintenance Before Summer Arrives

March 12th, 2018

air-conditioning-maintenanceSpring isn’t even here yet, and we’ve already had plenty of hot days in Southern California to force our air conditioners into regular use. That’s going to kick into overdrive in a manner of weeks. Hot weather seems to arrive a little sooner every year, and with temperatures in the area often rising well above 100 degrees. A good air conditioner is far more than a luxury in such an environment, and if it goes down in the middle of a heat wave, it can present an active health risk to your family.

The good news is that we offer timely repair services and can fix a faulty air conditioner quickly if it runs into trouble. But we don’t like seeing loyal customers having to scramble in the face of an unexpected emergency, and firmly believe that an ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure. Before the heat returns in earnest, you should schedule a maintenance session for your air conditioner. It will pay dividends all summer long.

Furnace Repair Services Can’t Always Wait

February 26th, 2018

heating-servicing-callsWe live in Southern California, which means that we tend to focus much more on our heating systems than our air conditioning systems. When we run into problems with our furnace, it doesn’t tend to hit us as hard as it might back east, which can lead homeowners to sit on a furnace problem when it arises.

This is invariably a mistake. The sooner one deals with a furnace problem, the better, and while we only have a few weeks of cool weather left in the season, getting an issue addressed by a professional quickly can save you a lot of money and heartache.

What to Look for in an HVAC Company

February 12th, 2018

HVAC-repair-serviceHVAC companies come in all varieties, and frankly, we don’t often think about them during our mild winters, when the weather is very temperate and we run our systems less often than we do in the summer.

Nonetheless, problems still crop up in our heating and air conditioning system from time to time, and when they do, you need a quality service to effect repairs. This is no less true for your heating system in the winter than it is for your air conditioning system in the summer.

Winter Is an Excellent Time to Schedule Air Conditioning Repair Services

January 29th, 2018

air-conditioning-maintenance“Winter” means something very different here in Southern California than it does to most of the rest of the country. We don’t get any deep freezes and even on the coldest nights, the weather rarely dips below freezing.

We still use heating systems to keep warm, but homeowners tend to focus much more on air conditioning. There’s little need for your AC at the moment, but that could change at any time – unexpected heat waves are hardly uncommon – and soon enough, you’ll be called upon to run it on a daily basis just to keep your home comfortable.

3 Signs You Need an HVAC Service

January 15th, 2018

Our winters aren’t nearly as cold as they are elsewhere in the country, which is one of the benefits of living in Southern California. We’ve only just experienced our first serious rainstorm of the winter, and even then, temperatures never dropped below 40 degrees or so.

All of that means we don’t always pay as much attention to our heating systems the way we do our air conditioners (which see far more use than our heating systems as a matter of course). And when trouble arises, it can be difficult to notice until a breakdown occurs.

Furnace Repair Shouldn’t Fill in for Furnace Replacement

January 1st, 2018

heating-repair-replacementWinter has arrived and while the cool weather was slow in coming to Southern California, as it is most years, homeowners have likely been firing up their furnaces on a regular basis this holiday season. Furnace repair calls become very common when that happens — especially with family and friends over for the winter break and furnaces being put to the test accordingly. And whenever a furnace suffers a breakdown, the question becomes whether the repair job is worth it or if replacing the system is the best option.

Now Is the Time for Air Conditioning Replacement

December 18th, 2017

air-conditioning-maintenanceAir conditioning season never really ends in Southern California, as our current spate of hot, dry weather shows. That can make things tricky when you have an air conditioner on its last legs and you need time to get it replaced.

The good news is that the weather is finally beginning to cool off, and if your AC needs replacing, now is the optimum time to do so. It gives you months of comparatively cool weather to plan for an AC replacement session, allowing you to set a schedule that matches your busy life. But how can you determine if your air conditioner is ready for replacement? Here are a few tips to help you out.

When Do You Need a New Furnace?

December 4th, 2017

heating-repair-servicesAfter another long summer, warm weather is finally coming to an end, and most homeowners have already begun using their heaters on a regular basis. Furnaces never see as much use as air conditioners in Southern California, but we still get our share of chilly nights, and that means your furnace is going to need to respond on a regular basis. If yours is on its last legs, now is the perfect time to get it replaced. Doing so gives you the time to plan the replacement appropriately, and means you can enjoy the benefits of a new unit for the entire winter.

Time to Get Your Heater Serviced

November 20th, 2017

heating-servicing-callsCool weather comes late and leaves early here in Southern California. It’s one of the reasons life in our part of the world is so lovely: mild, short winters are much easier to handle than the deep freezes and blizzards back east. But heating systems are still a necessary part of life here, especially at night when temperatures can drop below freezing. With temperatures steadily dropping, now is the time to make sure your heating system is ready to go for the winter.

We Provide HVAC Contractor Services

November 6th, 2017

HVAC-contractor-serviceA good heating and air conditioning system is built to last, and will run for a long time before needing repairs or replacement. This is especially true with commercial buildings, where problems with the HVAC system can be devastating.

Reliable HVAC service starts with a reliable HVAC system, and there’s no more important time in the system’s life than when it first gets installed. That requires specific HVAC contractor services, which can be more complex than other types of HVAC service. The benefits of hiring the right team are tremendous, however.
