Heating Maintenance

As the Mojave continues to give way to cooler days in Redlands, CA, thoughts turn to the warmth and comfort of our homes. The desert’s stark beauty in winter is a reminder of nature’s simplicity and the need for our living spaces to embody that same tranquil reliability. 

At AC Plus Heating & Cooling, we’re gearing up to ensure your home remains a cozy oasis. Our focus is not just on the immediate but on the enduring peace of mind that comes from a well-maintained heating system as you enjoy the seasons change year over year, perhaps watching the sunset from the Mojave Narrows Regional Park or strolling through the bustling streets downtown. 

Preparing Your Sanctuary for the Cold 

As you savor the calm that precedes the winter rush, it’s crucial to consider the heart of your home’s comfort: the heating system. A professional inspection of your heating unit isn’t merely a precaution; it’s a proactive strategy to secure the warmth of your home. Such inspections delve into the system’s intricacies, identifying any wear or potential issues before they escalate into costly repairs during the colder months.

At AC Plus Heating & Cooling, we believe in a thorough approach—examining each element of your heating system, from the pilot light’s blue flame to the heat exchanger’s integrity, ensuring every component is in top shape. This care not only safeguards your comfort but also optimizes your system’s efficiency, contributing to both a reduced carbon footprint and the longevity of your heating unit. 

Ensuring Peak Heating Performance in Redlands, CA’s Winters 

As the winds shift in Redlands, CA, bringing the chill from the High Desert, a reliable heating system is not a luxury—it’s a necessity. But beyond comfort, there’s an environmental imperative to keep your heating unit in prime condition. At AC Plus Heating & Cooling, we specialize in transforming the necessity of warmth into an opportunity for environmental stewardship. 

A well-maintained heating unit isn’t just a source of warmth. It’s a statement of your commitment to energy conservation and responsible living. The benefits of regular heating inspections and maintenance are twofold: ensuring your system operates at peak efficiency and minimizing its impact on the environment. 

Here are the crucial steps and their benefits: 

  • Heating Inspections 
  • Filter Replacements 
  • System Calibration 
  • Ductwork Checks 
  • Regular Maintenance Scheduling 

Heating Inspections: Ensuring Winter Readiness 

As you nestle into the comfort of your Redlands, CA home, consider the role of a professional heating inspection. This crucial evaluation, performed by experts like us at AC Plus Heating & Cooling, goes beyond a surface check. Our technicians scrutinize your system to verify that every component is in optimal condition, from the furnace flame sensor to the safety switches. 

This attention to detail can prevent the inconvenience of breakdowns during cold snaps, ensuring your heating system functions smoothly when you need it most. Benefits include heightened efficiency, which leads to lower utility costs and a reduced environmental impact, as well as the assurance that your home will remain a cozy haven throughout the winter months. 

Filter Replacements: The Clear Path to Efficiency 

In the pursuit of maintaining a pristine environment inside your home, filter replacements stand out as a simple yet impactful measure. 

Over time, filters accumulate dust and debris, obstructing airflow and forcing your heating system to work harder. This not only compromises your comfort but also strains your system. Regular filter changes, a service we provide with care at AC Plus Heating & Cooling, ensure clean air circulation, which is essential for both efficient system operation and your family’s respiratory health. With a clean filter, your heating unit can perform at its peak, providing warmth more effectively and economically while also contributing to the longevity of the system. 

System Calibration: Precision in Comfort Control 

Calibration of your heating system is akin to fine-tuning an instrument—it’s about perfecting the operation for harmonious performance. When AC Plus Heating & Cooling calibrates your system, we’re adjusting it to respond accurately to your thermostat’s commands, ensuring you get just the right amount of heat. 

This precision avoids the energy waste associated with overheating and the discomfort of underheating. Properly calibrated, your system distributes heat more evenly and runs only when necessary, which can extend the life of your furnace and trim your energy bills. This meticulous process, often overlooked, is vital for efficient home heating, providing you with a comfortable, cost-effective, and environmentally conscious living space. 

Ductwork Checks: Sealing in Efficiency 

Ductwork is the circulatory system of your heating unit, and just like veins and arteries, it needs to be unobstructed to function effectively. During our inspections at AC Plus Heating & Cooling, we examine your ducts for leaks and blockages that can compromise heating efficiency. 

Sealing leaks and insulating ducts prevent heat loss, ensuring that every bit of warmth is delivered to your living areas in Redlands, CA. The benefits of well-maintained ductwork extend beyond comfort. They include improved air quality and reduced strain on your heating system, preventing costly repairs and saving energy—a proactive step toward a greener, more sustainable home. 

Regular Maintenance Scheduling: The Keystone of Heating Efficiency 

Regular maintenance scheduling is the cornerstone of a heating system’s longevity and reliability. In Redlands, CA, where the desert climate brings a unique set of challenges, AC Plus Heating & Cooling knows the value of a well-timed tune-up. By adhering to a scheduled maintenance plan, you ensure that your heating unit is examined and optimized before it’s put to the test by winter’s demands. 

This foresight can lead to discovering inefficiencies that, if left unchecked, could spiral into larger issues. Regular maintenance keeps your system running smoothly, reduces the risk of emergency breakdowns, and maintains heating efficiency, which means your home stays warm while using less energy—an approach that’s as friendly to your wallet as it is to the environment. 

Embrace Winter with Assurance 

The assurance of a winter spent in comfort begins with the steps taken before the cold sets in. By scheduling a heating inspection with AC Plus Heating & Cooling, you’re choosing to prioritize both your comfort and your heating system’s health. 

Don’t let Redlands, CA’s chill catch you unprepared. Contact us today, and embrace winter, knowing your home will be the warm retreat you deserve.

This is a follow-up review to last year's install review . We went to use AC over the 4th of July holiday as it was very hot and it was not cooling the house . We were very disappointed because it is a brand new unit . We had yet to use it cuz it is our vacation home and we were a very disappointed it was not working. We called AC Plus and they quickly set an appointment for Sean to come out and take a look. Sean located the issue, corrected the issue and we had AC that day. It was under warranty so the service call did not cost us anything and Sean informed us that our two year warranty started over again due to the issue we had. I cannot say enough about AC plus and especially Sean. Sean has great care for his clients and a great knowledge of his business. I highly recommend AC Plus.AC install was extremely well done and the install team even went above and beyond with what was promised. We could not be there for the install. Sean, who put together the plan and quote, made a separate trip out to make sure we knew how the system works including the new smart thermostat. I could not be happier AC Plus Heating and Air.
Quick and reliable, Steven Mancillia was excellent, he was very nice and educated with loads of knowledge to share. Steven was very clean, wiped down everything he touched. Oh and the A/C is working.

Steven came to my house to check out my AC not working. It was a simple fix but my old unit is undersized and doesn't work very well. I was impressed with Steven knowledge. I am having AC Plus next week install a new AC unit and all new duct work. Steven did the repair on my old unit for free since I bought a new unit from them. It was very nice Steven did that! I am looking forward to next week and I am sure AC plus will do a great job!

Matt P., came to my house early, quickly diagnosed the problem, gave the short and simple answer to the issue, troubleshot, and quickly repaired my AC. The process was quick and easy. No doubt I'll refer others for his services.
I cannot recommend the team at AC Plus Heating & Air enough! Heat wave in July and of course, our a/c goes out. They were able to send Brandon out the next day. Brandon went above and beyond to fix the problem correctly and educated me on it every step of the way. He was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, answered all my questions, and was great with our dogs. He even gave me tips on how to maintain our unit to prevent further issues. When it came to billing, I was shocked at what a great price, despite the high quality work he provided. AC Plus is my new go-to. It should be yours too.

For the past month my house was not getting cool, The inside was pushing 81-94 and it was getting unbearable for everyone in the house. When I called a nice lady pick up and she was very professional, I called to see if a can get someone to check my unit, she was able to booked me the next day. Steven come early and patiently listen to what was happen and he get right to work checking the unit. He found the problem right away and took the time to explain in detail what was wrong with my unit. He explain to me how the unit work and what I can to keep it clean and working right. He was professional and friendly and very easy to talked too. Thank you Steven and Ac plus. I will definitely recommend you guys.

This is my second experience with AC Plus. I am always greeted by a professional and courtesy receptionist. I received same day service from Brandon N. He even arrived a little early , which was great. With it being over 100 degrees I appreciate his promptness and professionalism. Brandon educated me on the different components of my unit and how it worked , which was very informative to me ( a women who knows nothing about A/C units ) . Brandon,Got my A/C back working in no time. Now I'm sitting in my cool home drinking a glass of ice water , out of the heat . I would highly recommend A/C Plus to anyone seeking fast , courtesy, affordable service, ask for the technician Brandon N.Third Go around ,Sean was very prompt and professional. He kept me updated with his arrival time , he actually arrived sooner than expected. I told him what was going on, he went directly to the source . I needed a new compressor and was back in business before the heat rolls in. I think for the service and quality service well worth the price . I highly recommend AC Plus for your needs .

Brian V.
My air conditioner stopped blowing air through the vents. I knew I had to find an HVAC repair guy fast and I was worried about having some stranger with his hands on my equipment. I did a web search and found AC Plus Heating and Air with many hundreds of 5 star reviews on Google.Omar Amore came to my house and diagnosed and fixed the problem in 20 minutes and it cost me much less than expected. After he performed the work, he spent another 15 minutes with me educating me about the proper maintenance of my air conditioner. He quoted me some pricing on a couple action items to do next spring to keep my unit in good working order.Omar struck me as honest and thoughtful. I will use this company again for all my heating and air needs.
