How to Cut Your Air Conditioning Bills This Summer

Monday, March 26th, 2018

zone-control-systemWith the coming of spring, we’ve been treated to a great deal of rain here in Southern California: something we desperately need. Soon enough, however, the summer is going to hit us hard, and that means sky-high temperatures and an increased need for your air conditioning system.

With a few weeks to go before the temperatures really start to ramp up, now is the time to take serious steps to cut your air conditioning bills. We’ve provided a few handy tips below.

You Need AC Maintenance Before Summer Arrives

Monday, 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.

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

Monday, 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.

commercial-air-conditionersSummer ends late here, as the warm temperatures we’ve recently experienced have shown.

This goes doubly true for commercial properties such as office buildings and retail spaces, which need a reliable air conditioner to do business and might not have been able to shut it off before now because their operations depend on it.

Frost on Your Coils Needs an AC Repair Call

Monday, October 9th, 2017

frost-on-ACIf you’ve ever looked at the interior of your air conditioner, you may have noticed frost or ice building up on the coils. It may not seem like a big deal and in fact can make a certain amount of sense. After all, air conditioners are supposed to be cold. Why wouldn’t there be a little frost or ice built up?  Unfortunately, that assumption is wrong. Frost on the coils is a sign of significant problems with the system and usually requires the services of a trained technician to correct.
