At Environmental Heating & Air Solutions we believe that customer education is very important. Here we have provided some basic terms that you may come across when dealing with HVAC contractors.

HVAC Systems Install

When it comes time to replace your system, Environmental Heating and Air Solutions can assist you in choosing the best indoor comfort system options for your home.

Part of our process of ensuring you are getting the right system for your home includes doing a load calculation and airflow analysis. Taking into consideration the measurement of the rooms and windows, the amount of attic insulation, and measurement the return and supply grills allow for us to properly suggest the right size equipment for your home’s needs.

There are many questions homeowners might ask themselves when looking into replacement options that may help us determine what would suit you best in your home. Do any members living in the home suffer from allergies or asthma, how sensitive are you to dust, or how often do you actually change out your filter?

When we come to your home to give you a FREE estimate, feel free to ask us any questions that you may have about a new system or even your indoor air quality options.

Marcus A. Citrus Heights, CA Aug 05, 2011

We came home from vacation on a Friday afternoon and find out our AC is not working.  I call Environmental Heating & Air at 4:10 on a Friday and am told they have us scheduled for a 10 am Saturday appt with a chance for a 6 pm appt that night.  Matt called me back a few minutes later to let me know the tech, Michael would be there between 6 and 630.

Always a bit skeptical about technician arrival times, I was pleasantly surprised when Michael arrived at 610, checked out the unit and fixed it within 30 minutes.  Even better, he gave me some information on additional products and services without pressuring me to sign up then and there.  The next time we need HVAC work, I know who I am calling.  Definitely recommend this company for HVAC service and repairs.
