Step By Step Maintenance Scheduling Guide

Monday, March 29th, 2021

We don’t want to just convince you to sign up for maintenance, we want you to feel good about calling our team for AC maintenance in Los Angeles, CA.

It’s Time to Talk About Your Refrigerant

Monday, March 15th, 2021

As you take your air conditioner out of “retirement” and start fiddling around to get it up and running, refrigerant probably crossed your mind. Perhaps you’ve dealt with refrigerant leaks in the past, or maybe your system is dwindling in terms of comfort and you think it might be because the system doesn’t have enough refrigerant due to a leak. Either way, it might be time to talk about refrigerant and whether or not you require AC repair in Los Angeles, CA.

Before you scoff at that idea, just remember that an air conditioner might still function with a refrigerant leak, but you’re actively doing harm to it when it does. Leaking refrigerant can shorten the system’s lifespan, cause problems, decrease efficiency, leave your home warmer than it should be, and more.

Our team can help. But first, let’s talk about how you can tell if your system is leaking refrigerant.

Shifting Seasons, Shifting Air

Monday, March 1st, 2021

There’s a pretty interesting reason as to why we use the seasons at all in our calendars. We don’t have to name all the months and have unique names for each season and solstice, but we do. That’s because the weather can shift a lot and so does the indoor air quality of our homes.

Sure, the weather doesn’t dramatically shift in southern California as it might in other areas of the country, but it still shifts. With those shifts come contaminants that are picked up by winds, melted ice on mountain tops, and other allergens that can swiftly come into play in the spring months.

Now that spring is about to begin, it’s high time to think about an air filtration system in Los Angeles, CA. These units can filter out allergens, dust, debris, and whatever else might be coming your way in the next few months.

Combat Humidity with a Dehumidifier

Monday, July 20th, 2020

What’s worse, heat or humidity? That’s a tough question since we’re constantly associating the sweat and discomfort of summer with the heat from the sun. However, we’d argue humidity is the real villain of the summertime weather. The muggy weather of summertime is responsible for us feeling sticky, sweaty, uncomfortable, and hotter than average. So, it’s important to combat this humidity with an effective dehumidifier.

Many homeowners think they need to choose between a dehumidifier and an air conditioner. Some homeowners even think that they do the same job, and that purchasing a dehumidifier is redundant. That couldn’t be further from the truth!

Dehumidifiers are tools that contribute to comfortable homes. They can work together with your air conditioner to provide dry, cool homes when we want them. Take it from us, the experts on all things indoor air quality systems. Keep reading as we discuss the details of dehumidification.

Monday, December 23rd, 2019

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.

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!
