HVAC Installations: Your Top Options for a Truly Comfortable Home

Sep 12, 2017

With its cool ocean breezes and sultry summer evenings, San Diego is home to some of the most heavenly weather in the world.

But as heavenly as our climate might be, we fortunate Southern Californians know that the weather isn’t always ideal.

From heat waves in Rancho Bernardo to chilly spells in Mission Beach, even we have to deal with heating—and cooling—our homes. After all, the key to indoor comfort is temperature—and the qualit of our home’s air is equivalent to the quality of our lives.

Whether you’re building a home in La Playa or renovating your place in Valencia Park, chances are you realize the necessity of hiring an HVAC contractor to repair or install an air conditioning and heating system that will keep your home at the perfect temp, no matter the weather outside.

Here at Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air, we’ve spent over 45 years on San Diego HVAC installation (as well as repair, maintenance, and tune-ups), equipping homes from Sorrento Valley to Balboa Park—and from San Pasqual Valley to Point Loma—with top-notch heating and air conditioning installation.

If you’re thinking of all things heating and air conditioning, in the name of a wonderful home, here are a few of the top options available:

Furnaces and Heating System Installation

Some spring days may make us feel like we live in the tropics, but San Diego residents know that temperatures can drop as low as 50 degrees during the winter months—rendering an optimally-operating furnace vital to overall comfort.

Here at Anderson, we know that there’s a lot more to choosing a heating system than mere temperature. A furnace’s quality is of utmost importance. Furnace size, humidity controls, equipment capacity, energy efficiency, insulation—all are critical factors when it comes to excellent heating.

If you’re planning on an HVAC install, know that one of our expert project managers will evaluate your home and lifestyle to help you choose the best heating system for your needs.

Our HVAC service technicians and project managers receive extensive specialty and onsite training to ensure this; what’s more, our ongoing training keeps them apprised on current rebates, tax benefits, cost-saving technologies, and energy savings.

Plus, with free estimates, weekend and evening services, outstanding heating installation or replacement services, you know that you can get cozy pronto.

Heat Pump Installation

But a heat pump isn’t used just for heating your San Diego home. During the summer months, an energy saving heat pump will pull heat from the interior of your home and release it outdoors. Further, the heat pump will dehumidify the indoor as it cools it. (In the winter, the process is reversed and air is drawn from the outside and circulated through the ducts in your home.)

In assessing your home’s heating and air conditioning system—and providing you with a number of options—our highly trained, NATE-certified HVAC project managers technicians will also consult with you on choosing the best heat pump and getting it installed promptly, correctly, and to code and include all necessary permits or will repair your damaged heat pump).

What’s more? Heat pumps are eco-friendly—making your house feel good, and you feel awesome.

Whole House Humidifier

Ever wonder what that V stands for in HVAC?

That would be ventilation—one of the most essential components to creating and maintaining a comfortable home.

If you’re planning on an HVAC install or HVAC repair, one of the things our project managers or service technicians will advise you on is a whole house humidifier.

A whole house humidifier performs with your heating system to safeguard your home from getting too dry—and enhance its overall air quality.

After all, poor ventilation may lead to poor health. As the United States Department of Labor reports, “Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) has been tied to symptoms like headaches, fatigue, trouble concentrating, and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. Also, some specific diseases have been linked to specific air contaminants or indoor environments, like asthma with damp indoor environments. In addition, some exposures, such as asbestos and radon, do not cause immediate symptoms but can lead to cancer after many years.”

Anderson’s knowledgeable project managers and technicians go to great lengths to ensure that these problems do not arise through the installation of a whole house humidifier. Humidifiers add moisture to the air, while the fan inside your furnace or air handler circulates the humidified air to every room of your home.

Our HVAC service pros will help you choose the perfect humidifier for you and your home’s unique needs. To help you achieve the best quality of air, we also take into account additional HVAC considerations, including sizing. Combined with your whole house humidifier, you can live not just comfortably but also safely. And isn’t that pretty much the definition of peace at home?

Air Conditioning System Installation

Our air conditioning technicians at Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air are home refrigeration mechanics. After all, these pros know that the temps everywhere from Talmage to El Cerrito can get steaming hot.

They also know that more—much more—goes into selecting the right air conditioning system than just cooling power.

Should you set up an appointment or consultation with us, an air conditioning project manager will explain that humidity controls, air conditioner size, equipment capacity, energy efficiency, and insulation all have an impact on the quality of your home’s air conditioning.

All of this and more is taken into consideration by our air conditioner installation specialists, who will work with you to find the best products—and overall best HVAC system.

We offer the highest class of temperature control systems—including Wifi thermostats, learning thermostats, and even zoning—to supply you with the ultimate in home comfort and energy savings.

Not to toot our own horn, but San Diego air conditioning has never felt so good.

Mini Split Air Conditioning and Full Ductless Mini Split Systems

Mild, Mediterranean, lovely, superb: There are many ways to describe San Diego’s blissful weather, a fact that keeps a number of homeowners from obtaining central air conditioning and heating.

But, as discussed, we do have our days—and nights (and whole months)—when the temps are, to quote Goldilocks, not quite right. This makes installing heating and cool systems a leading priority.

That said, you may not want to invest in a heating and air conditioning installation if you don’t plan to use it all that often.

However, if you’re eyeing a fresh San Diego HVAC install but don’t want (or cannot add) central air, consider ductless mini-split air conditioners or air conditioning systems.

Low in cost and quick and easy to install, this air conditioning service delivers air directly to different areas of your home and is great for homes furnished with HVAC systems that just have certain rooms or zones that need an extra boost of cooling or warmth.

They also enhance indoor air quality. (Unlike most commercial heating and air systems, as well as some traditional HVAC systems, air ducts need to be thoroughly, professionally cleaned regularly; even after a meticulous cleanse, some pollutants and toxins may remain. Ductless systems, on the other hand, can minimize bacteria, dust, pollen, allergens, and more through their filtration system.)

What’s more, installing ductless air conditioning will reduce your carbon footprint.

“If there are multiple ductless zones in a home or structure,” Angie’s List says, “you can control the temperature in each room instead of using a thermostat for the entire house—making them more energy efficient.”

Indeed, as “much as 20 percent of air moving through a traditional central air duct system can get lost due to holes or leaks, according to Energy Star.”

Comfy and environmentally friendly? That’s modern luxury 2.0.
