Here in California, the heat of summer gets much more attention than the chill of winter. That’s fair enough. We don’t get buried by snow or hit by subzero temperatures the way that they do in other parts of the country. Don’t let this fact lead you to believe that your heating system is any less important than your air conditioner, though. If you need heating repairs in Fresno, CA, then you need them promptly. Waiting only causes more problems.
Of course, in order to schedule heating repairs as soon as possible, you first need to understand what the warning signs of heating problems look like. You don’t want to wait for your heater to break down entirely before you go ahead and have it repaired. That is hardly what we’d call a proactive approach. That’s why we’ve put together this guide of common heating red flags for you. Keep them in mind, and alert a member of our team the moment that you have any cause for concern.

No, our heating season is not as intense as the hot summers are. That does not mean that you should be taking any chances with your home heating system, though. You may not rely on your heater as heavily as you do your air conditioning system, but you are still going to need it to be there for you whenever the temperature drops below comfortable levels. And the only way that you can count on your heater is if it is properly maintained.
No, you cannot tune up your heating system on your own. No, it does not matter if you download a “maintenance checklist” from the internet. After all, even if that is a thorough and complete checklist, which is highly unlikely, you are still not going to have the skill and expertise needed to do the job the right way. We do, though, so take advantage of the benefits that professional heating maintenance in Fresno, CA has to offer.

Clean energy is more and more of a focus for homeowners these days.

Today, we are going to look at the practical applications of solar energy in the residential sector. Just keep in mind that using solar energy reliably and effectively is not a given. You need more than great equipment, including quality solar panels in Fresno, CA. You also need great solar energy technicians to install and service that equipment, so leave the work to us!

Don’t let that headline deceive you—this isn’t a post about why you need your air conditioner replaced.
This is a post about why you need your air conditioner replaced by a professional. We think doing a DIY or amateur AC installation is a terrible idea—and we’re not just saying that because we offer HVAC services in Visalia, CA.

We wish that we lived in a world where children didn’t need the type of care that they receive at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Until the reality of childhood cancer is an issue of the past, however, we believe that we all must do our part to help these children and the teams that treat them in any way we can. That is why Dave and Sonny of Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning are so proud to have participated with the 2018 St. Jude Dream Home project.
Today, September 20th, 2018, marks the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Dream Home, with open houses beginning this weekend, as well. It is truly an honor to be able to support St. Jude’s and the work that they do, including the Dream Home program. As the team at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital teaches us, it’s all for the kids!

There are a lot of areas in the country where homeowners are already starting to brace themselves for the chill of the winter season. Around here, of course, there is still a decent amount of heat left to come. That is why any problems with our air conditioning systems, even this late in the calendar year, are of such concern. Now, this begs the question of when is enough enough? When is air conditioning repair in Visalia, CA no longer justified?
If your answer is “When it breaks down completely, duh!” then:
A. That’s a bit rude and
B. That’s actually the wrong answer.
Ideally, you’ll have your air conditioner replaced with a new system before it ever has a chance to break down entirely. This means making some tough decisions and facing some tough truths in regards to your AC, though. Read on for some tips in helping to decide if your AC is still worth repairing.

While the hottest time of the year may well be behind us at this point, that does not mean that you don’t need your AC to continue cooling your home for some time to come. The cool fall weather that is already arriving in certain parts of the country is not so quick to show up around here. That is why, even this late in the year, you really cannot ignore any signs of trouble with your air conditioning system.
As we have said before, and just as we will certainly say again, early intervention is key when successfully dealing with air conditioning problems in Clovis, CA. When you notice any signs of trouble with your air conditioner, you want to have them addressed ASAP. To do so, of course, you first need to learn to recognize the warning signs of trouble to begin with. No problem is minor enough to ignore when it comes to your home cooling system, so contact us for AC repair services right away.

First off, note that we didn’t say a perfect AC performance. An air conditioner, even the best one on the market and even those installed by trained, experienced professionals, is still a mechanical system. That means that, like any other mechanical system, they are subject to occasional operational problems. When that time comes, you can count on us to provide you with exceptional air conditioning repairs. Our air conditioning services in Hanford, CA are nothing if not comprehensive.
Okay, that being said, how can you get the best performance that your air conditioner can offer? That is the subject of today’s post. Just because we’re already pretty far into the summer season doesn’t mean that this type of information can’t still be of use! So read on, and remember that our technicians are the ones that you want on the job if you want the best performance possible from your home cooling system.

Too often, homeowners fail to report problems with their air conditioning systems early on. Sometimes this is due to the fact that they think the issue at hand is just “no big deal”. Other times, they figure that they’ll just wait for a system to break down before addressing the problem, which you should never do. In many instances, however, homeowners simply fail to realize that something is wrong. This is especially common when dealing with irregular cooling cycles.
As long as the air conditioner is starting up and is blowing out cool air, some people just assume that the system is doing fine. This really is not the case, though. Short cycling is something that affects many air conditioners, for many reasons, and it can cause many problems. The fact that an air conditioner is running doesn’t mean that it’s running right. Fortunately, you can always count on us for quality air conditioning repair in Fresno, CA.
