Air Conditioning

AC troubles? Keep your cool with expert service from 1st Choice Plumbing, Heating and Air.

Here in sunny southern California, air conditioning is absolutely essential for keeping your home comfortable. When your air conditioner isn’t working right and you’re sweltering in your own home, it’s understandable to feel desperate for a solution. You definitely do not want to get stuck with a contractor who will take advantage of this situation and leave you with an incomplete, ineffective, or overpriced repair.

You don’t have to worry about this when you choose 1st Choice Plumbing, Heating and Air. We service all makes and models of air conditioners with fair and upfront pricing, and we never make you wait one moment more than necessary for service.

Our core cooling services include:

Central AC Repairs

We have highly skilled and experienced air conditioner repair technicians who understand how your system works and how best to fix any problems that may arise. We will not leave you with a Band-Aid solution that only seems to fix the problem; we’ll find and correct the root cause of the issue with cost-effective and lasting central AC repairs. This way, we can make sure your equipment delivers the reliable and efficient cooling you deserve.

Central AC Maintenance

With proper preventative maintenance for your air conditioner, you can avoid sudden problems during the cooling season altogether. Simply call us and we will send an experienced technician out to inspect your system and identify and correct any small problems before they have a chance to get bigger and affect your comfort. Some of the most important central AC maintenance services we offer are:

  • AC Filter Replacements: A clean air filter is essential for capturing dust, pollen, pet dander, and other airborne particles so you can enjoy clean indoor air. A clean air filter also promotes better air flow than a dirty one. We can set up a schedule to replace your air filters every 3 to 6 months so you never have to worry about dirty indoor air or air flow issues.
  • Evaporator Coil Services: Dirty evaporator coils can really detract from the energy efficiency of your air conditioner. Eventually, your system may not be able to generate cold air at all. That’s why we recommend annual evaporator coil cleaning. Our technicians have the right equipment to clean coils thoroughly but carefully.
  • Freon Recharging: On every maintenance visit, we will check your Freon levels to make sure your system has enough coolant to generate cold air. If your Freon is low, there’s a good chance there is a leak somewhere in the system. You can trust our AC technicians to find and fix the leak and then top off the system with an approved coolant.

Air Handler Services

A central AC system has two main components: the cooling unit, which actually generates the cold air, and the air handler, which is responsible for distributing that air throughout your property. The air handler contains lots of moving parts such as dampers, fans, filters, blowers, and sound attenuators. If any of these parts wear out or otherwise fail to perform as expected, your comfort will suffer. Fortunately, at 1st Choice Plumbing, Heating and Air we understand air handlers and we can provide the professional repairs and maintenance needed to keep your system in top working condition.

Central AC Installation

If your current central AC isn’t keeping your family cool, it may be time for a new system. We can provide our honest opinion as to the benefits of repairing vs replacing your air conditioner, along with our recommendations for the best new unit for your specific needs and preferences. We provide professional installation to give you peace of mind that your new air conditioner will be properly set up to comply with relevant building codes and operate as efficiently and reliably as the manufacturer promised.

Ductless Mini Split AC Systems

Do you need to cool a space that lacks traditional ductwork? You don’t have to make do with a window unit. Just get a ductless mini split AC system, which consists of an outdoor cooling unit and wall- or ceiling-mounted air handlers. Because these systems don’t require ducts, they are less expensive to install and to run. You won’t waste energy sending air through a maze of ductwork, and you can also save money by controlling the temperature in different rooms individually. However, if you want to get the biggest benefits from your ductless mini split AC system, professional installation and service are essential. Fortunately, at 1st Choice Plumbing, Heating and Air we understand these special systems in detail and we can meet for all your needs.
