Expert Residential Air Conditioning Repair, Replacement & Installation | Bell Brothers HVAC

In Northern California, summer always feels like it’s just around the corner. Californians have always loved to be outside; we enjoy more outdoor activities than we can list, from walking the coastline to hiking in the mountains.  When the thermostat in our home creeps into the 70s, though, many of us turn to the cool comfort of our air conditioners. If your thermostat is rising, but your AC won’t turn on, things can get a bit heated.

Empower yourself to breezily handle cool air emergencies—and to head them off before they arise with regular maintenance and servicing. That’s where we come in. With over 25 years of knowledge and experience, there’s no HVAC issue Bell Brothers can’t solve. Whether it’s seasonal maintenance, unexpected repairs, or the installation of a new system, we’re your full-service heating and air experts—and Northern California’s trusted “No Surprise Guys.”

The Low Down on the Cool Down

Air conditioners can be pretty mysterious—just a strange metal box in the closet that keeps us cool. But having a basic understanding of how your air conditioner works can alert you when something has gone wrong, or help you to be as efficient as possible with your home energy use. The first step in becoming fluent in HVAC is to explore the main components of your air conditioning unit.

The Main Components of Your Air Conditioning Unit

Beat the Heat with a New Unit Install

Most people like to think of themselves as pretty handy, but air conditioning installation can be a lot to take on—a difficult task for anyone except HVAC professionals. When installing a new unit, there are many different components to consider, inside and outside your air conditioner, and making sure they all work together harmoniously can be daunting. That’s we highly recommend having a local Bell Brothers technician out to your home. Whether you’re combining a new air conditioner with an existing HVAC system or doing a complete overhaul and replacement, we offer the following services as part of the installation process:

Maintenance and Repair for Energy Efficiency

Car maintenance and AC maintenance actually have a lot in common—regular service checks, keeping parts oiled and greased, and checking belts to make sure they’re clean and in good working order. But many homeowners miss their annual AC maintenance checkups. Would you drive your car without having the needed oil changes?

Failing to have your unit serviced can take years off its life. Bell Brothers recommends our 30-point maintenance check for your overworked Northern California air conditioner.

Replacing Your Old Dinosaur with a Modern System

Regular maintenance checks will definitely extend the life of your unit. But, just like all machines, eventually the parts will wear out. An AC unit typically has a lifespan of one to two decades, depending on how well it’s been taken care of.

The good news about buying a new, modern unit is that virtually all of the ones manufactured in the last decade are significantly more efficient, boasting a 14 Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) or higher, which uses a third less energy than one with a 10 SEER rating. And, newer AC units make it easier to program your system, ultimately saving you money. Bell Brothers is here to walk you through the selection and buying process.
