Monday, March 6th, 2017

air-conditioning-systemSouthern California has experienced colder weather than usual these past few weeks. Along with temperatures in the 50s during the day, we’ve also had powerful rainstorms. This may sound comical to somebody who lives in a place like Minnesota: what we’re going through isn’t remotely close to what they consider “cold.” But it is for us, and you’ve probably gotten some steady use from your home’s heating system during the previous weeks and not given your air conditioner much thought.

But spring is almost here (officially on March 20), and hot weather rushes in early in Southern California. Now is the time we recommend you give serious thought to your air conditioning system in Sherman Oaks, CA.

Psst… Want To Save Some Money?

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

Saving money is very important to our homeowners.

Money is an important factor in our everyday life whether it be spending it or saving it.

Hello. My name is Jessica and I work in the office as the Customer Service Representative. Today I’m going to tell you a little bit about the importance of having your heating and AC system inspected periodically by a licensed professional. 

Did you know that your heating and air conditioning system loses 5% of its overall efficiency every year it goes without proper professional maintenance. 

According to the American Standard website “it’s best to perform bi-annual service to ensure your system is working optimally.” Kilowatt professionals recommend having your system on a maintenance and safety inspection plan which includes two visits per year once for cooling and once for heating, 20% discount on any needed repairs, and priority scheduling.

During the maintenance and safety inspection a drug-tested, background-checked, factory-trained technician will inspect and evaluate your system and make any needed adjustments to prevent breakdowns. There are many benefits to a maintenance plan which include:

  1. Saving Energy. A lot can happen to your heating and cooling system over time that prevents it from performing efficiently. When a technician inspects your system he will ensure that the system is running as smoothly and efficiently as possible, which will cut down on the amount of energy it uses. SAVES MONEY
  2. Avoid unnecessary repairs. When you have The maintenance and safety inspection performed twice a year, it is possible that you can stop problems to your system before they start. Which might save you an emergency service call in the summer when you need your system the most! SAVES MONEY
  3. Keep your home safe. If you have a gas furnace like many homeowners in the San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles area, there is a chance that carbon monoxide can leak into your air. When performing seasonal maintenance, a technician may be able to identify safety risks and possibly fix any problems before they pose a threat to your family. SAVES MONEY
  4. Extend the life of your systems. One of the best benefits of Seasonal maintenance is that it will extend the life of your heating and cooling system. Just like oil changes and tune-ups keep your car in good shape, seasonal maintenance will keep your heating and cooling systems healthy for seasons to come. SAVES MONEY

Thank you very much for your time.
