High-Efficiency Air Conditioning Installation in San Diego, CA

In its early days, Carini focused on bringing advanced craftsmanship and technical expertise to the challenges of installing high-tech AC solutions in older, vintage homes – without affecting the unique character of their design and architectural features. Our company expanded rapidly, installing highly innovative AC systems in all types of homes, replacing older air conditioners while saving homeowners tons of money on utility bills. Today, Carini is one of the leading HVAC contractors in San Diego County, CA.

Factors to Consider Before Installing a New AC System in San Diego, CA

  • Regional Weather Patterns: The weather in San Diego is relatively stable year-round, which is good news for maximizing energy efficiency. Still, you should compare your cooling bills from years past and identify trends regarding seasonal energy usage. Your air conditioning installation technician can review your usage trends to determine the best unit for your AC needs.
  • Efficiency Ratings: Carini offers modern air conditioning installations with high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) ratings. AC systems with high SEER ratings typically cost more up front than low-efficiency systems, but they will save you money on energy and maintenance expenses in the long run. Consider it an investment.
  • Annual Maintenance Costs: The yearly cost of air conditioning repairs should not exceed more than half of the present-day value of your system — especially when you’re dealing with a brand new air conditioning installation. As your AC system ages, the cost of maintenance will rise gradually. However, maintenance practices will differ depending on the region you live in. Residents of La Mesa, CA, are likely to have different maintenance needs than folks living in La Jolla.
  • Noise Pollution: While San Diego County, CA, isn’t the quietest place to live, your AC system should not contribute to the neighborhood’s noise pollution levels. Some older air conditioning installations are as noisy as 80 decibels at full capacity — louder than a vacuum cleaner — while newer, innovative systems are closer to the volume of a casual conversation, reaching as low as 60 decibels.
  • Individual Needs: Some families prefer to control the climate of each room in their home independently. Others might live in a wooded area that receives more shade in the summertime. If you live in a valley city like El Cajon, CA, your cooling needs will differ from those of families living in coastal cities such as Encinitas, CA.
