While humidity might be a problem sometimes, lack of humidity can become a major problem as well! When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and your healthy, well… healthy, then a humidifier might be a perfect fit for your home.
Winters can be drier than they are cold in our neck of the woods, so the lack of humidity is actually a big deal. Not only that but homes these days are built to be air-tight, which means a lack of humidity outside can lead to an extreme lack of humidity inside. Humidifiers help mitigate this problem substantially and also help our heaters work more efficiently since air with moisture holds heat better than air without it.
Not convinced? Don’t worry, our advice doesn’t stop there. We’re going to go into detail about how a whole-house humidifier can help your Santa Monica HVAC systems and better your family’s health as well!

Don’t settle for the expensive costs for

We get it, the title is sort of an oxymoron. While it might not get chilly very often in Beverly Hills, there are plenty of days each year where a heater could be an important tool for your home.
The problem with this sentiment is that there are various different types of heaters to choose from in our area, and since our climate isn’t like our northern neighbors, we need to be careful that we don’t choose an inefficient system. Heating systems like boilers are usually just not versatile enough since they often work too well for a mild climate like ours. When it comes to HVAC services in Beverly Hills, you’re going to want one of two types of heating systems—either a gas furnace or a heat pump.
So today, we’re going to go over the differences between these two systems and how they function in regard to efficiency.

Contrary to what many homeowners in our area might believe, air filters and air purifiers don’t do the same thing. While they might both contribute equally to helping the indoor air quality of your home, they don’t do it in the exact same way.
While we’d like to get to the bottom of what they do exactly for curiosity’s sake, we also want to do it so many homeowners out there know what type of system they should invest in. If you’ve been having trouble with the air quality in your home, don’t just point at a catalog of indoor air quality solutions and take a guess—it’s time to make an informed decision on how you can best deal with air contaminants.
Whether you could use some help with your IAQ or not, join us for a ride through the science behind cleaning your indoor air!

While the rest of the country is talking about heating systems, we’re lucky to have some mild temperatures all year round. That means we’ve got extra time to inform people in our area about the intricacies of their air conditioning systems while we prepare for the scorching temperatures next year.

If this idea is news to you, then we’d like to fill you in. Furnaces are the most common type of heater in the United States, topping out as one of the most affordable, efficient, and yes—reliable. But today, we’d like to ask specifically why furnaces are so reliable?
In the past few years, furnaces in Los Angeles, CA have gone through a huge increase in efficiency and reliability. Each new furnace model that comes out has a higher efficiency ratio, is made of more stable metal alloys, and is usually equipped to function with a smart thermostat, granting an owner complete control over the temperature within their home.
So, what exactly makes these systems so affordable, comfortable, and reliable these days? The more important question is whether or not this is enough information to convert you into a furnace believer! Keep reading to find out.
