We don’t use air conditioners for very long each year, but if you have one installed, they’re a very nice relief service when the weather gets too warm during the summer.

You’re already aware of why Mainstream is the best home service company in the area, so expanding out to include us for repair, installation, and maintenance for your cooling system makes perfect sense.
Air Conditioning Maintenance
Maintenance cycles for your HVAC unit are often overlooked by homeowners, but they’re essential to prolonging the service life of your system and maintaining energy-saving efficiency. Simple services, such as replacing the air filter every 3-6 months, can (and should) be performed regularly. For more complex maintenance, you should seek help from Mainstream’s qualified service technicians. We look at more than just the filters and vents, we diagnose the entire system from vent to register to ensure proper operation.
A properly maintained system can last for years over its expected lifespan, with substantial savings over the life of the unit. All HVAC units, regardless of age, should be given a full inspection and maintenance every spring, before you turn on your unit for the first time in the summer.
Air Conditioning Repairs
You don’t control when your system breaks down, but you can call a dedicated service team that’s available 24/7! Mainstream Electric, Heating, Cooling, & Plumbing is there for you. When it’s hot outside and your system breaks, you need relief fast. That’s why we offer 24/7 emergency repair and same-day HVAC service.
A damaged air conditioner doesn’t always stop working completely. It can be difficult to tell when your system is actually broken and in need of repair, but there are always signs. Call a licensed HVAC technician if:
- You notice a dramatic increase in your utility bill
- There is a smoky or foul odor when the system is running
- You notice a heavy dampness from the ventilation system
- The air from the vent is room-temperature The air conditioner cycles on-and-off too frequently
- Your unit fails to turn off, or won’t turn on
Air Conditioning Installation
The most important day in the life of your HVAC system is the day that it’s installed. But ensuring a proper installation starts before you’ve even purchased your system. An improperly sized HVAC unit can cause excess strain on the unit while causing cooling inefficiencies that can cost you greatly when the utility bill comes due each month.
These issues are only compounded when the system is installed incorrectly. A properly seated, connected, and sealed system (with ductwork of the correct size) is essential for cooling efficiency. Many issues with hot (or cold) spots in the home come from ventilation leaks and incorrect HVAC sizing. The professional technicians at Mainstream Electric, Heating, Cooling, & Plumbing have the training and equipment that’s necessary to ensure a long-lasting installation, guaranteed to maintain efficiency and longevity for your unit.
