Don’t Delay Your Duct Services!

Monday, February 28th, 2022

Air ducts are a vital component of our HVAC systems. They’re responsible for pushing the heated or cooled air that’s created by the system into each room of our house. Without proper ductwork, you could lose valuable heating or cooling power and end up wasting money on leaks and issues. Not to mention the fact that only certain systems can run without the use of extensive duct systems, so you should really keep your ducts in good shape.

Here’s the problem–how do you know if your air ducts are in need of help? Air ducts in Los Angeles are vital to your home’s energy efficiency, but the signs of air duct issues can often be hard to notice. That’s why we’re going to talk about some signs that you might need air duct repairs or sealing services.

Your Heat Pump Needs More Maintenance

Monday, January 17th, 2022

We’re not telling you to call us a second time for maintenance this season. If you’ve already invested in wintertime heat pump maintenance then you’re in good shape! What we’re talking about is the fact that your heat pumps require more maintenance than other HVAC systems.

In this blog post, we’re going to talk about what can happen if you decide to only maintain your heat pump half as much as it should be maintained. Let this be a PSA to get your heat pump maintained twice a year. Without enough maintenance, you might end up calling us for heating repair in Beverly Hills, CA.
