Having air conditioning or heating problems?  We’re Oceanside’s licensed specialists ready to meet your air conditioning and heating needs — whether repair, replacement or new installation.  We know downtime is frustrating so we’ll arrive right when we promised with a well-stocked vehicle for fast single-visit service nearly every time. We also offer affordable maintenance programs for residential and commercial clients so you can avoid costly repairs.

Residential Air Conditioning

Being without AC can be more than a little uncomfortable.  Our troubleshooting experts go straight to the problem for fast and efficient air conditioning repair.  And our crew is an Oceanside leader in replacements, upgrades, and new installations.  Our central air conditioning services also include thorough duct cleaning that covers all outlets and grills as well as the main HVAC unit.

Residential Heating

Being cold is no fun, and can be unsafe for seniors.  Our heating repair crews are ready for pretty much any type of system from single units to central heating systems.  And just about any gas or electric furnace.  They’re also experts in furnace installation in existing and new construction.  It’s often difficult to retrofit ductwork, but adding a central furnace to a central AC system is easy for us.

Residential A/C Maintenance

Our customized annual maintenance program delivers longer equipment lifetimes, fewer disruptions, reduced energy consumption, and higher heater and cooling capacities.  We’ll perform two inspections:  one in the spring for cooling and one in the fall for heating.  They include dozens of checklist items for inspection, test, calibration, adjustment, cleaning, and lubrication.

We’re ready for all the leading brands — Amana, American Standard, Carrier, Coleman, Comfort Maker, Goodman, Lennox, Payne, Rheem, Trane, and others.

Energy Efficiency

Home HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) represent 50 to 60% of the energy use for a typical home.  So a 10 to 15% reduction in your utility bills is usually possible.  But in Oceanside’s mild climate the most efficient may not be the most economical overall.  Our certified technicians would be pleased to discuss your options for Energy Star rated equipment and other high-performance options.  Yes, you can indeed save energy while maintaining or even improving your comfort.
