AC installation, repairs, maintenance, replacement… to someone not so familiar with this industry, all of those words can make your head spin. Where do you start?
Well, the good news is that we understand how frustrating this can seem. You just start with a strange noise coming from your air conditioner, and all of a sudden you’re trying to figure out how old your unit is, the manufacturer, whether or not it has been maintained, and all the questions just make you want to quit. We get it, which is why we thought it would be helpful to make this simple blog post.
If you’re a newcomer to AC services in Santa Monica, CA, then this is the blog post for you. We’ll go over each type of AC job, from the installation of a new unit to yearly maintenance, and we’ll try and explain when you might want to invest in each type of work.
First, let’s start out with one of the easiest and most common services we provide–AC maintenance! Maintenance is a yearly evaluation and adjustment of your air conditioner that’s performed by a professional.
Maintenance might be a requirement for any warranties that cover your air conditioner, so we recommend investing in it every single year to get the most out of your technology.
During maintenance, we get to examine your system and tell you how it’s looking. We’ll even be able to make small adjustments and repairs to ensure it’s in the best condition possible for the year ahead.
Installing a New System
Did you just move to a new property with no air conditioning? Or perhaps you’ve been saving up for years and it’s finally time to start investing in your home comfort?
This is when you’ll want to call us for an installation. The first call you make will be more of a “consultation,” where we talk about your AC options and some of your unique comfort preferences. We urge you to explore options like ductless HVAC units, inverter ACs, and even heat pumps so that you have a better understanding of what technology might fit your home the best.

A “Service Call”
When something goes wrong with your AC and you call us for help, this is what we would consider a “service call.” Also known as AC repair, this entails a professional technician coming to your house and fixing a specific problem in your system. Sometimes, you might not even know what the problem is, and the pro has to diagnose the issue. This is totally normal.
If you ever encounter something wrong with your AC, get in touch with a pro for a service call.
Eventually, your AC is going to run through its lifespan and it’s just not going to work well anymore. It might start running inefficiently (costing too much to run), or it might just not cool your home properly anymore. In these instances, we recommend contacting us for replacement services. We’ll be able to set you up with a new unit that can meet your comfort demands and your budget.
Voila! These are the main choices when you call our team for support.
