As a leading San Diego heating and air conditioning repair and maintenance company, ARS® is committed to giving back to the community and leading the industry with customer service initiatives that are second to none. One example of these programs is ARS’ “Senior Care Program,” which was designed to provide seniors with the best customer service and peace of mind.
The first of its kind in the HVAC industry, the ARS Senior Care Program ensures that when a customer contacts ARS for heating or air conditioning maintenance, repair or installation services, the customer is greeted with a live representative who asks a series of questions to qualify the customer for any eligible discounts. If a senior discount is applicable, the representative will notify the ARS technician of such prior to the on-site appointment. Once an ARS technician is at the customer’s residence, a service estimate with options is provided to the customer. The technician will then direct the customer to call into a recorded system that will guide the customer through the purchase process to ensure full understanding of the estimate and costs. If the senior customer is not comfortable or unclear on the services or estimate, ARS will contact the customer’s family member of choice to inform him or her of the HVAC maintenance or repairs needed, along with the cost estimate. No fees will be charged until the customer and/or his or her family member clearly understands and approves the scope of work.
ARS technicians undergo continuous technical training and customer service training, as well as receive feedback on surveys and analysis as a team. The “Senior Care Program” is just one example of how ARS consistently gives back to people of all ages throughout San Diego and nationwide. Call today to learn about the eligible discounts for you or your senior citizen loved ones.

We wish our present and future customers a pleasant Labor Day this September. We know how hard you work to ensure that you and your loved ones have a good life, and we feel the same way about the work that we do throughout the year. Home comfort is our business, so you can rely on our technicians to take care of any issues that you may have. To us, Labor Day means BBQ, the start of the football season, and spending quality time with our friends and family.
Like many US holidays, the origins of Labor Day are somewhat disputed. While many cite Peter J. McGuire’s (of the American Federation of Labor) suggestion of a demonstration and picnic as the inaugural Monday, others cite Matthew Maguire, then secretary of the Central Labor Union of New York. In the wake of the massive and violent Pullman Strike of 1894, which pitted George Pullman and US Marshals and Military against workers of the Pullman Palace Car Company outside Chicago. Designated as a federal holiday by Congress and President Grover Cleveland in 1894, a mere six days after the strike ended, Labor Day has since become a way of recognizing the contribution that hard working Americans have made to this country.
We wish you all the best this Labor Day. Make sure that you take the time to relax, eat some good food, and take a load off.
Are you tired of constantly repairing your air conditioner? Do you feel as though your AC is on its last leg? There are various reasons to opt for air conditioning replacement over repair. It may actually make more financial sense to do so, especially considering that today’s systems are much more advanced than those of yesteryear. But there are some things to keep in mind about replacing your old air conditioning unit. For one, a new system needs to be properly integrated into your existing ductwork, and into the layout of your home. It also needs to be appropriately sized for excellent performance and efficiency.

With traditional central air conditioning systems, they use a series of ductwork in your home to push cool air into your rooms. While that might seem like an easy job, your ducts can actually take quite a beating through its normal operation. There are a couple different issues that can happen with your ducts: they could start leaking, and they could also get clogged with contaminants. We wanted to put together a quick list of some of the benefits to getting regular cleaning for your ducts.
Call the Carlsbad, CA duct cleaning experts at ARS® San Diego if you suspect that you have any issues with your ducts.
As your home’s air conditioning system operates, it will pull in outside air which could contain contaminants such as dust and pollen. Also, your home’s indoor air can become contaminated with items such as dust, pet dander and others. Here are a few of the most common benefits to getting your home’s ducts regularly cleaned:
Improved air quality – As your air conditioning system operates, it will push contaminants through your home. These contaminants can start to build up in your ducts, which means they will just continue to re-circulate those contaminants throughout your home. By getting your ducts cleaned regularly, it can reduce the amount of contaminants that are in your home’s air.
Improved efficiency – When there are contaminants in your ducts, it can restrict the flow of air through your ducts. This means that your air conditioning system has to work harder to push the air through the ducts, which reduces the efficiency of the system.
While many homeowners regularly clean out the registers in their home, this doesn’t do anything for the contaminants that are trapped deeper into your home’s ductwork. In order to remove those contaminants, your duct cleaning technicians will have to cut into your ducts. They will then attach powerful vacuums that can pull out those contaminants that are deep in the ducts.
For professional Carlsbad, CA duct cleaning services, make sure you call the experts at ARS® San Diego.

These contaminants can get lodged in your ductwork and then picked up by the air moving through them. Without regular duct cleaning, they will continue to get circulated through your home and negatively impact the quality of air that you breathe.

No matter what kind of air conditioning (AC) system you have, it likely uses vapor compression to provide your home with cooling. We’re not going to get into the nitty gritty about the physics behind your AC unit, but we do want to let our customers know about why it’s important to keep an eye on the refrigerant charge of their air conditioning system. Low refrigerant, or low refrigerant charge, are two of the most common calls for service that we receive.

Have you ever used one of those compressed air canisters to clean your computer? When you squeeze the trigger air shoots out and the can starts to get cold. This happens because of something called adiabatic cooling. As the gas is released from the can, the remaining gas inside the can expands to fill the space, which causes it to quickly absorb heat energy from the surrounding area. Your air conditioning system uses this exact same concept to cool your home, just at a much larger level.
Your air conditioning system compresses a refrigerant and then releases it in order to absorb heat energy from your home’s air. If the refrigerant isn’t kept at a high pressure, when it releases it won’t be able to absorb as much heat from your home.
There are a few common signs that could indicate that you have low refrigerant levels. Call the La Mesa, CA air conditioning repair professionals at ARS® San Diego if you’re having any of the following problems:

In this post, we’d like to look at a few common issues that may arise this cooling season. Call ARS® San Diego today if you’re in need of an air conditioning repair in San Diego.

As summer approaches, homeowners throughout San Diego are thinking about the many system upgrades they could make before the heat hits. Spring is a great time to take stock of your air conditioning and see whether it’s working as well as it should, and whether it meets your needs. If you’ve never heard of a dual fuel AC system, then it makes a great year-round solution for cooling and heating. If your current system is old or requires frequent repairs, then you might like to consider replacing it. Investing in your future comfort is a great way to kick off the summer. To get the most out of your air conditioning in San Diego this summer, call ARS San Diego today!
Let’s take a look at a dual fuel AC system:
A dual fuel AC system must be installed by a San Diego air conditioning professional in order to be effective. A San Diego air conditioning technician will be to size your house up so that the volume of potential heated and cooled air is taken into consideration. If your system is too small or large, then it will not be able to work effectively. The results will be inefficient, and can lead to constant short-cycling and inadequate cooling. Make sure you hire a San Diego air conditioning professional for any air conditioning installation service.
For comprehensive air conditioning services in San Diego, including dual-fuel AC systems, call ARS San Diego today – (866) 362-1355!
You rely on your San Diego air conditioning every day to provide crisp, cool respite from the outdoors. As the refrigerant circulates throughout your compressor, condenser coils, expansion valve, and evaporator coils, it changes from a gas to a liquid and the back to a gas. It absorbs the thermal energy from inside your home and dissipates it into the outdoor air. This basic refrigerant cycle has been highly refined, but it is all for naught unless your air conditioning has a good thermostat.
Your thermostat is your primary user interface with your air conditioning system. Whether you have a manual, a digital programmable, or wifi-enable smart thermostat, it still needs to be in control of your AC. By accurately sensing the temperature and communicating it to your AC, the thermostat is effectively responsible for the entire system’s operation. It may be hard wired to your system, or it may be wireless. It should be installed where sunlight and drafts cannot affect its temperature sensor. It needs to be professionally calibrated by a San Diego Air Conditioning technician in order to work properly.
The thermostat is critical to your home’s energy efficiency. If you still have a conventional manual model, then you may be missing out on long-term energy savings. There’s no reason not to upgrade. A digital programmable thermostat will not only be easier to read, and more accurate than the manual thermostat, but it will also allow you to customize your indoor climate according to a cooling schedule. If you want to walk into a cool home after work, but you don’t want to spend your hard-earned money cooling an unoccupied space all day, then you can program the thermostat to turn off just after you leave in the morning, and on just before you get home at the end of the day. That way, you don’t need to sacrifice your comfort.
We can’t emphasize the importance of the thermostat enough. Upgrading your thermostat is a cost-effective way to improve your home cooling system. For comprehensive air conditioning services, call the San Diego CA air conditioning experts at ARS® San Diego. Call ARS® San Diego today!

At ARS®, we understand the important role that temperature maintenance in your home plays in your overall comfort. Many homeowners fail to realize, though, the equally important role that indoor air quality can play. Our own Colin Martodam recently spoke with San Diego County News to share some information about the importance of high indoor air quality in San Diego, as well as some helpful tips to improve the quality of the air that you breathe in your home. Read this informative article in its entiretyhere.
Here are a few facts that Colin shared in his article. Some of them may surprise you.
-According to the EPA, the air inside your home can actually be more polluted than outdoor air. In fact, the EPA states that indoor air pollution is among the top five environmental health risks.
-10% of Americans have never changed the filter on their HVAC unit even though these filters catch dirt and other pollutant particles 24/7. HVAC service technicians frequently find filters that have not been changed for years. These dirty, overloaded filters can become a source of air contamination in your home. Depending on the unit and where you live, it is recommended to change your filter anywhere from once a month to once every three months.
Considering the important role that indoor air quality plays in your home, Colin also shared some tips, including:
-Duct cleaning can improve air quality in your home tremendously. As a result, those in your home with allergies and asthma could improve their breathing.
-Whole house air cleaners, which can be easily installed into your home by an HVAC professional, have been shown to reduce the ill effects of indoor air pollutants.
As Colin writes in his article, “if you’re not having an HVAC professional maintain your system and filters at least twice a year, you and your family could be experiencing poor indoor air quality.” At ARS® we believe that you and your family deserve better than that. Contact our San Diego air quality experts today to learn more about improving the air that you breathe in your home. Call ARS® today!

You really need to be able to rely on the consistent performance of your air conditioning in San Diego. Summers in San Diego, CA can be pretty harsh, and if your air conditioner cannot handle the demand you put on it you are in for a long, uncomfortable summer season. It is also important that you are able to operate your air conditioning system efficiently. At ARS® we believe everyone should be comfortable in their own home, no matter how hot it is or how expensive energy costs are. Here are some tips to help you cool your home more efficiently.
One of the simplest ways to boost air conditioning efficiency is to make better use of your thermostat. Consider upgrading your thermostat to a programmable model. If you already have a programmable thermostat, make sure you are using it properly. Read the literature that came with your thermostat and contact a professional San Diego air conditioning technician with any questions you may have. By creating personalized air conditioning programs to fit your schedule you may be able to cut down on the amount of money it costs to keep your home cool this summer.
You may also want to consider the installation of a zone control system in your home. A zone control system is a great air conditioning upgrade in San Diego that lets you take more control over the way in which energy is used when cooling your home. A zone control system uses dampers to help you direct where cooled air is distributed throughout your house. This means that it is no longer necessary to cool empty bedrooms just to keep your living room comfortable for guests.
The most important step you can take to get the most efficient performance from your air conditioner is to schedule routine AC maintenance with a qualified San Diego air conditioning professional. Call ARS® to schedule air conditioning service in San Diego, CA. When each individual component of your air conditioning system can operate properly the system as a whole will require less energy to cool your home.

ARS came through again! ARS was quick to get a technician to my condo to clear out my condensation line. They were very professional over the phone and the technician they sent, Robert LaRussa, was fantastic! He quickly diagnosed our problem and advised us in what to do to avoid future issues. He also was extremely fair on the cost for the service, thank you! I already have referred ARS and will be continuing to do so.Julia S.
