Air Conditioning Services, Repair, and Maintenance
Air conditioners have come a long way from the days of fans and window units. Early air conditioners were noisy, inefficient and costly to operate. Today’s central air conditioners have made great strides in all three areas.
The cost to install a central AC unit will vary greatly depending on the size of your home and the amount of work that needs to be done. If the air conditioner can be attached to duct work, the cost will be much less than if new duct work has to be added, particularly if the ducts have to be run through walls (thus requiring drywall repair and replacement). There are ductless systems available, but these systems are not widely used in the United States, where most homes have duct work, or at least the space for it. The duct-free systems tend to be more expensive, but it may be worth comparing prices if you have to add ducts anyway.
Make sure you do your due diligence when hiring a company for air conditioning services. Adding ducts is a complicated procedure, contractors need a wide spread of knowledge and experience to do the job right. At Air-Al, Inc. we have been serving clients in the greater Los Angeles area for over 30 years. We combine our construction and air conditioning knowledge to provide a seamless experience.

Heating means making a building comfortably warm relative to a colder outside temperature. Old, primitive methods of heating a building or a room within it include a heater, the fireplace, and the stove. In ancient Rome, a heating system called a hypocaust, warmed a building by passing hot gasses from a furnace through enclosed passages under the floors and behind the walls before releasing them outside. The principal modern systems that are used to heat a building are classified as warm air, hot water, steam, or electricity. In the warm-air system, air heated in a furnace, rises through warm-air ducts and enters the rooms through outlets, while cooler air in the rooms passes into return ducts that lead back to the furnace. The air circulates through the system by convection; i.e, the tendency of a fluid such as air to rise when warm and sink when cool.
