Here are some tips from your local San Diego HVAC experts at ARS® (ARSSanDiego.com) on how to beat the heat and possibly save money on your utility bill with air conditioning maintenance in the process.

As the summer heat begins to emerge, the rise in air pollution can prove problematic. Longer days, warmer weather and more sunshine can mean stagnant air and increased emissions from cars, planes and other common pollutants added to the air we breathe.
Unfortunately, the beautiful county of San Diego was recently under the attack of numerous fires, and the skies were filled with smoke. Ash and other debris associated with the fires can be taken in through the outside air conditioning unit, which could eventually enter our homes, especially if the home is in an area with less than moderate air quality.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that poor indoor air quality is one of the top five leading factors affecting respiratory health in the country. The professionals at ARS® would like to share how you can increase the quality of the air inside your homes with routine air conditioner maintenance. Here are just a few of the helpful tips:
The time to pay attention to your HVAC maintenance needs is now.

Is that possible? Is that a new invention? It’s actually something homeowners in San Diego are learning – dual fuel systems.
A dual-fuel AC system is something every homeowner should consider because it’s good for a personal budget and global responsibility.
A dual-fuel heat pump is an electric heat pump and a gas furnace all in one. In areas of the country where temperatures are typically above freezing and that have low electric rates, a heat pump is one of the most efficient way to heat your home. In those few instances when the temperature drops below freezing, a gas furnace provides heat more economically. By combining the two, you can have the benefits of both systems.
Dual-fuel heat pump systems are a larger investment than a new conventional heating and cooling systems because you’re getting essentially two systems in one. However, you'll could save the extra money in the next two to three years from lower heating and cooling costs.

The Air Quality Index of San Diego is something very important to this city. Some days, our air quality is good in terms of ground-level ozone and levels of health concern. Most days, it’s not great in San Diego, largely because of smog.
According to the Air Pollution Control District for the County of San Diego, “smog season” lasts from May through October. Yet, because of the strange winter we have been having in our city, smog levels have been at irrational rates. Here are three things you can do as a homeowner to improve the air quality for your family.

In various climates – from arid to humid, brisk to warm – air quality is important for homeowners. San Diego has all of the above throughout the year. Of course, residents will experience those different temperatures while going for a bike ride or hiking a trail. However, at ARS San Diego, we mean inside the home.
That’s why it is a surprise that duct cleaning is one of the most overlooked aspects of home ownership, at least from what our skilled HVAC technicians have noticed this winter.
Our teams are called upon from all across the greater San Diego area for air conditioning and heating needs, and even the regular furnace tune-up, but general air quality in the home is something ARS would like to encourage more homeowners to consider. Why? Pet hair and dander, pollen and dust – they all accumulate in our homes. Without proper duct cleaning maintenance, all of that collection blows back into your home.
Our ARS San Diego technicians are ready to help you breathe easier with cleaner air. Check your ducts and give us a call. You will be glad you did.
It’s in the cold of winter. The temperature is dropping. You reach for the thermostat and then it happens – nothing. No power, which means no heat. Now what?
You need to call an HVAC technician fast, but who do you call? The company with the biggest ad online? The company that you find first on page one of Google?
You don’t have time to look for reviews, and you are not sure if you would even understand what they mean if you did. So, ARS of Orange County and San Diego has created this small list of items to look for when looking for the right HVAC technician for your home:
Ask friends or family. Consider real estate agents you know. What about interior designers or home improvement specialists? If you don’t know what to look for, ask people who have had to look in the past. Hopefully, some of them have tried ARS and our guarantee to fix the problem.
How long has the company been in business? How long has the technician been with the company? How long has the company been a member of any professional organization, such as North American Technician Excellence (NATE) or Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA)? The longevity of relationships in the industry and the community could be the very measurement you need to decide who you trust.
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.
Call ARS® San Diego today for installation advice from a La Mesa, CA air conditioning replacement expert.

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.
