Getting HVAC and air conditioning services in San Diego

San Diego skyline

Air conditioning repair is the most common HVAC issue for which San Diegans hire a professional. Year-round warm temperatures bring year-round A/C use, so filters and systems require regular maintenance.

Air quality becomes poor from wildfires in drier months and plants releasing pollen in spring. HVAC systems improve indoor air quality if air filters are replaced and ducts are cleaned regularly. In San Diego’s desert communities, dust is a concern, especially in spring when winds pick up. Allergy sufferers in San Diego might appreciate the results of a UV light component, which can eliminate certain kinds of mold and bacteria.

When it’s time to turn on the furnace in winter, San Diegans should hire a professional to make sure that their system is good to go.

Most companies charge a service call fee to travel to your home. Upon diagnosis of the problem the technician provides a written estimate. Some companies apply credit towards your bill for the fee paid if you decide to hire them for the repair while others do not.

Average costs for HVAC repair in San Diego

San Diego Gas and Electric and the State of California offer incentives ranging from $1,000 to $5,500 for making your home more energy efficient. HVAC contractors can help you choose a system to fit the criteria.

The City of San Diego requires permits and inspections for new A/C system or exhaust fan installations, furnace replacement or rewiring an existing system. Your contractor should be able to help with the process.

A reputable HVAC repair company will have a license number and commercial general liability insurance. The Contractors State License Board allows consumers to verify licenses and see detailed information about installing new HVAC systems.
