How Central Air can prevent you from a good nights sleep OR How ductless A/C can help you sleep better at night

Friday, March 24th, 2023

I have long touted the many benefits of ductless mini-split systems. I even had one installed at our old house in Aliso Viejo in for the master bedroom after quickly realizing that the central wasn’t doing a good enough job of cooling the upstairs master bedroom with south facing windows and a hot garage underneath. And it was life changing. But last night solidified why I need to convince my landlords to let Command Comfort install a ductless air conditioner in the master bedroom of our new home.

Do I need A/C for my home in Orange County, CA:

Friday, March 10th, 2023

That’s a good question and of course we are inclined to say yes. But let’s think about it for a moment. There are other alternatives to air conditioning if you don’t need it “cold” in your house. Whole house fans work fine for some, especially those near the coast where it most often cools down at night. Using a whole house fan allows you to inexpensively draw in cool air from outdoors through open windows and doors and expels the hot air in your home into your attic. If properly designed, it will help force the hot air out of your attic as well, further reducing the heat load from above. But here’s the catch. They ONLY work well when it’s cooler outside than it is inside. For many that’s not enough, myself included personally. Also keep in mind that here is So Cal, we have fire season and it’s usually worst when it’s hottest out. Having to pull in the outside air through your home when fires are ranging in the distance (hopefully very far from your home) can obviously be displeasing. But, if you think a whole house fan for your Orange County home is sufficient we can help! It’s a nice alternative or an addition to air conditioning.

Flexibility to Fit Your Needs

Friday, February 10th, 2023

Houses are like people.  They come in many styles, shapes, ages, and sizes, and each one is unique.  Yet the traditional ducted HVAC system operates as if the home is a homogenous blob.  Whereas in reality every home is a collection of microclimates and microhabitats.  Ducted HVAC systems attempt to impose a broad inflexible solution for every home, regardless of the home’s individual characteristics or the needs of its occupants.  Such a generic approach inevitably leads to inefficiencies in cost and sub optimum performance, and may even send you searching for ‘air conditioning service near me’ to fix your under-performing unit.
