Congratulations Chris and Heidi!

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Our very own Chris Parker has made it official and popped the question to his now fiance, Heidi – and she said YES! Being the traditional guy that he is, Chris first asked Heidi’s father for approval. Then, to have a little fun, Chris put together an innocent little prank before sealing the deal. Check out this up close and personal video of Chris’ proposal and Heidi’s priceless reaction at the zipline . Well played! From all of us here at Command A/C, we wish Chris and Heidi nothing but love and laughter in their future as soon to be husband and wife.

Memorial Day

Monday, May 27th, 2013

During the final Monday of May every year, we commemorate those military personnel who have died in service to their country. Formerly known as Decoration Day, probably because of the way that graveyards were decorated with flowers, Memorial Day came to prominence in the wake of the American Civil War, which left the country war-torn, with many casualties on both sides. Since that time, it has been a day of remembering those who have given up the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

As you go about town on your day off from work, you’ll probably see an abundance of flags and flowers, as well as public commemorations such as parades. While this day has been turned into the last leg of a three-day weekend, it’s important to reflect on the way that our military personnel have shaped our country, and to remember their contribution to the way we live today. We at Command A/C, wish you all the best on Memorial Day.

Cypress, CA Air Conditioning: Benefits of Air Conditioning Upgrades

Friday, May 24th, 2013

If you cannot count on an efficient, effective performance from your air conditioning system in California, you are going to be in for a long, uncomfortable summer. Luckily, the Cypress, CA air conditioning professionals at Command A/C are here to handle any air conditioning services that you may need. We have the AC upgrades that you need to enjoy a better performance from your air conditioning system this cooling season. Contact us today to learn more. Whatever issues you may have with your air conditioner, we have what it takes to help you make it through the hot summer months with the comfort that you deserve.

One of the most basic ways that you may choose to upgrade your air conditioning system is upgrade your thermostat. It is your thermostat, after all, that you use in order to control the rest of your air conditioning system. Of all the components that make up your AC system, your thermostat is by far the one that you have the most direct interaction with. Make sure that you have the thermostat most suited to your needs and AC usage habits.

If you still use and old manual thermostat, you should seriously consider upgrading to a digital model. Not only are digital displays easier to read that the old round models, but push button controls also make setting thermostats accurately even easier. If you really want to take advantage of your thermostat, you may want to have a programmable model installed. With a programmable thermostat you can create cooling programs based around your individual schedule.

A zone control system installation is another great way to improve the efficiency with which your air conditioning system operates. Zone control systems allow you to cool different areas of your home independently, meaning that you do not need to cool your entire house just to keep guests in the living room comfortable. Enjoy greater efficiency and greater comfort control at the same time.

For more information about how AC upgrades can benefit your home, contact the Cypress, CA air conditioning technicians at Command A/C. Your comfort is our top priority. Let us help you keep your cool this summer.

Cypress, CA Air Conditioning FAQ: What is Mini Split Air Conditioning

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

If you are in the market for your first new air conditioning system, or if it has been a while since you last purchased one, you may be surprised by the amount of air conditioning options available to you. In fact, you may even find it a little overwhelming. That is why the Cypress, CA air conditioning installation experts at Command A/C make themselves available to answer any questions you may have when buying a new air conditioning system. One great option you may want to consider is a ductless mini split air conditioning system. Call today to learn more about this great air conditioning option.

Ductless mini split air conditioning systems, as you may have guessed. Do not rely on a traditional air duct system in order to distribute cooled air throughout your home. In fact, with the installation of a ductless mini split system you can completely bypass the need for bulky, costly air ducts. This is due to the innovative design of a ductless mini split system.

While ductless mini split systems feature an outdoor unit, much like more traditional air conditioning systems, they connect directly to individual, wall mounted blowers in your home. This is accomplished by using a simple conduit containing power and refrigerant lines to connect the indoor and outdoor components. There are many benefits to using this type of air conditioning system.

A ductless mini split system provides year round comfort, as it can both heat and cool your home. They are also highly efficient, as air ducts are a common source of energy loss in many homes. By eliminating the need for air ducts, ductless mini split systems also eliminate this potential energy loss. Plus, the individual wall mounted blowers make it easy to utilize zone control to heat and cool different rooms to different temperatures. This further boosts energy efficiency and helps to keep everyone in your home comfortable and happy.

If you have any further questions about ductless mini split air conditioning systems, call the Cypress, CA air conditioning experts at Command A/C for more information. We have the answers you need to decide if a ductless mini split system is right for your home. Contact us today to learn more.

Cypress CA Air Conditioning Tip: What to Do if Your AC Breaks

Monday, May 6th, 2013

When you live in California, a broken down air conditioning system can be a serious problem, especially if it happens in the dead of winter. Make sure that your air conditioner is kept in the best condition possible by scheduling your AC installation and routine air conditioning maintenance with a qualified Cypress CA air conditioning professional. Even so, you will eventually run into a problem of some sort with your air conditioning system. Here are some tips about what to do when your air conditioning system breaks down from the Cypress CA air conditioning repair experts at Command A/C.

First of all, it is best to ensure that there is not a simple solution to your air conditioning woes. While you should never attempt to service or repair your air conditioning system on your own, it is no necessary to schedule professional air conditioning repair service to have your AC plugged back in. Check your power source to ensure that it is actually connected. If it is, check your circuit breaker. It is possible that a power surge tripped a breaker in the circuit powering your AC. If so, a simple flip of a switch may solve your problem.

It also may be a simple case of user error. Make sure that you double check the settings on your thermostat. It is possible that you have accidentally flipped it to the heating setting or that you misread the temperature settings. Either way, you may have a best case scenario on your hands.

If there does not seem to be an obvious cause of your air conditioning problem, call a professional right away. The sooner any problems with your air conditioning system are resolved the less likely any serious damage to your home cooling system is.
