However, just having an upgraded thermostat is not enough. You need to make sure you’re operating it properly.

Keep reading and we’ll explain everything you need to know about old and new thermostats.

December 24th, 2018

furnace-repair-technicianNothing feels better than your furnace smoothly and consistently dispensing heat through your home. So if your furnace is doing the opposite of that then, well, we won’t keep rubbing it in… But you should also get your furnace checked as soon as you can.

A furnace that’s turning on and off rapidly, also known as “short-cycling,” can be due to a few reasons. Some of them you might be able to fix immediately, and some will require the help of an expert.

family-cooling-off-with-electric-fansSummer has officially ended… as of last month. Even if the weather outside here in Riverside doesn’t seem to act like it.

It’s no secret that we still need to use our air conditioners until November, at least. But what if your AC doesn’t think so, and it decides to take a vacation? Namely, that it stops blowing cool air (or stops blowing air at all).

While there are a couple things you can do to fix this issue, you might have no choice but to call in for repairs. We’ll go over a few reasons why your AC might be acting this way and what you should do about it.

air-filter-manWe’ll say this one first so we don’t have to say it later:

Lots of bad things can happen if you don’t change your air filter regularly.

#1 Heating and A/C Company in the Inland Empire.

September 24th, 2018

A-Avis Home Services Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. has been voted the #1 Heating and A/C company in the Inland Empire.

Why were we given the honor of #1 in the Inland Empire? Maybe we could thank our legacy of being in business for 60 years, and maybe we could thank our amazing staff of highly trained professionals. But neither of those things would have been possible without a strong base of loyal customers.

We mean it! Without our customers, there would be no one to support us for the last six decades—you can’t survive that long on your own. Without our customers, we wouldn’t feel the need to exceed their every expectation by only hiring those who meet our highest standards.

Of course, just having customers isn’t enough, either. We’ve always believed the key to keeping a company in business is by maintaining relationships with all the customers. Not only do we do our best to tell our customers about our appreciation, we show it by providing quality work on all the services we provide. This award is proof that focusing on the customer is the key to success.

Thank you for your support!
