One of the benefits to living on the shore here in Southern California is the pleasant temperatures we enjoy all year. That helps save a great deal on heating and cooling expenses, especially when you consider how hot it can get just a few miles inland.

3 Possible Causes of Low Airflow

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

It can be a frustrating experience: you turn on the air conditioner to escape from the stifling heat of our summer only to find the airflow to be much less powerful than it should be. It’s more than just a nuisance. Low airflow means that the air conditioner is going to have to spend a lot more energy to cool your house, raising your monthly bills and increasing the strain on the rest of the system.
