Tips for Avoiding Air Conditioning Repair Needs

Monday, November 13th, 2017

AC-tech-repairing-unitWe 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.

HVAC FAQ: How Does a Heat Pump Work?

Monday, October 30th, 2017

man-keeping-warmLiving 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.

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.
