This helps a heater avoid 95% of breakdowns over the winter and helps keep it working at the highest possible efficiency. Maintenance is a job for HVAC professionals only.

How to Tell It’s Time to Replace Your Air Conditioning System

October 9th, 2017

ac-unit-from-the-topThe fall is an unusual season for the HVAC industry, balanced between the heat of summer and the cold of winter. Air conditioning systems do less work—although they may still have some to do—and most heaters aren’t ready to come on yet. This means fewer emergency calls, and instead people thinking about the future. This means scheduling heating maintenance, which is an essential part of ensuring a house has reliable warmth through the coming winter and bills are kept under control. It can also mean arranging for major changes to the HVAC system. For example, if a home’s air conditioner showed signs over the previous summer that it’s too old to do its job, fall is the time to arrange for the installation of a new central air conditioner in Auburn, CA.

Replacing Your Water Heater? Consider a Tankless Water Heater

September 25th, 2017

tankless-water-heaterFall is a great time of the year to make major replacements to your air conditioning and heating system. We often recommend customers who experienced trouble with their cooling during the summer to arrange for an air conditioning replacement in fall. It’s easier to schedule, and they’ll be ready for any late fall heat swings.

But fall is also an excellent time to have an old water heater replaced. Water heaters can sometimes last as much as 20 years, but most are ready to be replaced after about 15 years of labor. There are signs that a water heater is reaching the end of its service life: a reduction in hot water volume, a rise in heating bills (the water heater accounts for the majority of your heating costs), the appearance of corrosion on the tank, and excessive repair needs. You don’t want to wait for an aging water heater to fully fail on you before scheduling the replacement!

If you’re ready for a new water heater, we’d like to suggest looking into replacing a tank water heater with a tankless water heater installation in Roseville, CA or elsewhere in the Sacramento area.

Options for Replacing Your Old AC This Fall

September 11th, 2017

ac-condensing-unitThe best time of the year to make major changes to the HVAC system in your home is during periods when you need the system the least. In Northern California, this means mid-fall and mid-spring, when temperatures are mild and you only occasionally need to resort to the air conditioning and sometimes the heating system.

We’re coming up on the fall now, so it’s the right time to ask yourself if your home is due for a new air conditioning system. If your current AC is more than 15 years old, it’s definitely time to make plans! But you should also be thinking about an air conditioning replacement in Rocklin, CA if you’ve noticed issues like spiking summer utility bills and shelling out more than $500 a year in repairs to keep the AC up and running.

If it looks like an AC replacement is coming up for you this fall, you have some options to consider. You don’t have to retire your current cooling system for one exactly like it. Let’s take a look at some alternatives.
