Preserving the Vintage Look Without Compromising On Efficiency

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – Many older and historic neighborhoods have older homes with special heating, ventilation and air conditioning requirements, which complicates the process of finding a HVAC company when remodeling or updating a vintage home.

“Finding a contractor who specializes in that area is crucial to getting the result you want,” says Gabriel Carini San Diego heating and air conditioning expert. His company, Carini Air Conditioning and Heating, is experienced in repairing, retrofitting and remodeling the HVAC systems of homes in San Diego historic neighborhoods, such as Kensington, North Park, Mission Hills, South Park, Hillcrest and Bankers Hill.

“A lot of challenges come with the territory when working with vintage homes,” says Carini, the San Diego air conditioning, heating and ventilation specialist. “Historic homes require very careful attention on the technician’s part to maintain the true architectural heritage while also adhering to the HVAC requirements of the neighborhood.”

The original architecture and structure of historic homes, such as lath and plaster walls or low-pitch roofs, do not readily accommodate the easy-installation, pre-fabricated systems frequently used by other San Diego air conditioning repair companies. Many neighborhoods in San Diego and surrounding communities like La Jolla, Rancho Santa Fe and Del Mar feature the Spanish style stucco and Craftsman style homes built from early in the 1900s to the 1950s.

“The style, craftsmanship and detail of vintage homes are amazing, but they were obviously not built in a way that makes configuring, installing, repairing or replacing HVAC systems simple, particularly with current heating and air system technology,” says Carini, who provides air conditioning repair in San Diego.

Just because a vintage home has those types of limitations doesn’t mean that the homeowner has to sacrifice the latest technology and efficiency standards though. Our training and experience help us recognize and recommend the best products and installation techniques for older homes, says the San Diego heating service technician. Carini Air specialists have created custom systems that are aesthetically matched to the period, while still providing the homeowner with state-of-the-art technology.

“We offer homeowners free project estimates,” says San Diego air conditioning service repairman Carini. A project estimate entails one of our installation and replacement experts going to the home to carefully analyze the space. The technician calculates how elements, such as size of the home, heat and air loss, hot and cold spots and architectural details, would affect the overall install options and cost before giving a cost proposal for the job.

“I guarantee the work performed by Carini Air technicians unconditionally,” he says. “Homeowners in historic neighborhoods can trust that we will get their job done correctly, and to their satisfaction.”
