Many people seem to think that California is a warm, sunny place to be throughout the entire year. This could not be further from the truth, though. Just step outside once the sun’s gone down tonight, and you’ll see that California actually has plenty of cold weather to throw our way. With that in mind, it should go without saying that you need a great heater installed in your home if you hope to make it through the coldest time of the year comfortably.
Now, we have to remind you that even the best heaters out there, even when properly installed and routinely maintained, are still going to require professional heating repairs at some point. There is simply no such as a 100% reliable heating system—or mechanical system in general, for that matter. If and when you do run into the need for heating repairs, remember that scheduling them as soon as possible is always going to be in your best interest. That also means that you need to know how to spot them, though.

If you had endless amounts of a natural resource littering your property, you would probably take advantage of that and try to exploit that natural resource in a responsible way for your own benefit, right? Of course you would—who wouldn’t? Now this does beg the question of why you are not putting the sun to work for you, doesn’t it?
When you live in California, sunny skies are certainly not few and far between. With all of the sunshine that we enjoy, it only makes sense that homeowners would take advantage of the sun’s natural energy. By using solar panels in Fresno, CA, you can do just that. It just so happens that we employ some of the finest solar energy consultants and technicians around, so don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions that you may have.

We are definitely beyond the hottest time of the year. This may come as a shock to people that envision California as being a hot and sunny oasis all year long, but the fact of the matter is that weather can get pretty chilly around here during the winter season. Before we start diving into our heating topics of discussion, though, let us ask you this — how did your air conditioner do this year? Was it able to cool your home both effectively and reliably?
If the answer is no, due to the fact that your air conditioner has been struggling to function in a dependable manner, then you should really start asking yourself why this may be the case. Problems with your air conditioner are unavoidable, of course. No mechanical system is ever really going to function perfectly 100% of the time. That being said, your air conditioning repair needs should not be all that frequent. Here are some tips for reducing the frequency of air conditioning repairs in Fresno, CA.

Living in California means that your air conditioner sees more time on the playing field than your home heating system does. It does not mean, however, that your heater is not as important as your AC. The fact is that, regardless of usage time, both systems play a vital role in helping to ensure your comfort throughout the year. You don’t want to live uncomfortably in the winter just because it doesn’t get that cold. Even so, you may think that a designated heating system is overkill.
That is where the heat pump comes into play. By operating in both heating and cooling modes, the heat pump offers an elegant solution to the homeowner looking to simplify his or her year-round comfort. Even with temperatures dipping into the 30’s at night, a heat pump is an ideal solution for efficient heating in this part of the country — and can keep you cool all summer, too. Consider this information, and schedule your heat pump services with our Visalia, CA HVAC pros.

Many savvy homeowners today are using solar panels in Fresno, CA. There are some very obvious benefits to be had in doing so. Solar energy is clean. It is sustainable and renewable, with the sun rising each and every morning. It saves homeowners money while also reducing their carbon footprint.

Will a solar energy system produce enough energy? What kind of maintenance am I looking at? We’ve got the answers that you need to help determine if going solar is right for you.

No rest for the wicked, they say, but the same could apply to our air conditioners here in California. Now, the idea of a hot and sunny climate year round is one that those of us living here in California know to be a falsehood. We do have pretty mild winters, though, and our air conditioners have a lot of work to do during our long, hot summer seasons. That is why any sign of trouble with your home cooling system should definitely be taken seriously.
If your air conditioner is short cycling — meaning that it is starting up, but running only briefly before shutting back down — then you very well may need professional air conditioning repair in Fresno, CA. However, it is also possible that there is a very simple solution to the problem. In today’s post, we are going to fill you in on what could be behind your air conditioner’s atypical operation. Short cycling can cause serious problems, so keep this info in mind.

Hopefully not, because this seemingly minor detail in the grand scheme of things can lead to some very serious issues with your system. The coils in your air conditioner may not be components that are very familiar with, but if they are dirty then they will definitely let you know about it. Keeping these coils clean is something that some homeowners may feel comfortable doing themselves. Having them professionally cleaned, though, particularly as part of your annual AC maintenance regimen, is really the way to go.
In today’s post, we are going to talk about what these coils do, why it’s so important, and how the accumulation of grime and debris on them will negatively affect your system and your comfort – not to mention your budget. Read on, and remember that we’re here to handle any air conditioning services that you may need. From basic coil cleanings to thorough maintenance and repairs, our team does it all.

When you live in as hot an environment as we do, you need your air conditioner to be firing on all cylinders. Assuming that your system was properly sized and professionally installed in your home, then it should be capable of cooling your entire home effectively and evenly throughout. If it is failing to do so, then there is a problem that needs to be addressed. Frankly, you deserve better than a home that is comfortable in some areas, but riddled with hot spots throughout.
There are a lot of different reasons why you may wind up with hot spots in your home. Not all of them will demand professional air conditioning repairs in Kingsburg, CA. Others will, though, so it is vitally important that you work with a qualified AC technician to diagnose the problem that is causing hot spots to pop out throughout your living space. Here are a few reasons why your air conditioner may fail to evenly cool your home.

Somehow the calendar is telling us that it is already mid-September, and it seems to be accurate. With the year going by so quickly, it is safe to say that the heating season will be upon us sooner than we know it. That being said, our air conditioners still have plenty of work to do before the cooler winter season takes some of the strain off of them. While we may be reaching the tail end of the hottest time of the year, it is important to remain vigilant when it comes to your AC.
Any problems that start to develop with your air conditioning system should be dealt with immediately. Don’t tell yourself that your system can limp along for the next month and a half or so. Instead, contact a member of our team to schedule professional air conditioning repairs in Visalia, CA. One issue that you may notice is an air conditioner that is still starting up, but running only briefly before shutting back down.
