Circuit Breakers

I know you will be rolling your eyes on this one. But you would be surprised at how many times we get called for a breakdown when the only problem is a tripped breaker. This simply means that the circuit no longer has power and needs to be reset by turning off the breaker and turning it back on. It is usually a double breaker marked AC.

Now, of course, if you have repeated experiences with the breaker tripping, you should probably have the system looked at by a professional.

If you suspect that your unit requires a repair, don’t take a chance, give us a call at (562) 944-2118.

Tip #1 : 3 Benefits of Changing Your AC Filter Regularly

Heating and Air Conditioning Filter

Change your filter every 2 to 3 months. A clean filter allows for easy airflow through your system. Many bigger problems can be avoided if your filter is kept clean.

Keep in mind that the filter should cover the entire opening and should be held in place by a clip or other fastener.

We’re always happy to show a homeowner how to change their own filter during a service call.

We could write chapters about why airflow is important to your unit, but if you keep your filter clean you may never need to know the scientific principles of your AC unit.

If your AC needs repair or service, please call us at 562-944-2118 to set up an appointment.
