Trying to take advantage of the less knowledgeable
William - Oceanside, CA
I wouldn’t trust this company. The technician connected a device that measured the temperature of the compressor coolant, however that’s all he did. He did not use a multimeter, nor did he provide any recommendations on what he thought was the problem and why my condenser was tripping my circuit breaker. He gave me some very costly options in which the first started at $800 for a simple topping off of refrigerant fluid. After trial and error And a little bit of research I was able to narrow it down to the capacitor that’s inside of my unit. This is $100 part would’ve been an easy replacement. However he chose to take the hundred dollars that I had to pay him just for showing up and leave.
HVAC service Perfection!
Sherry - Oceanside, CA
Shane was on time, courteous and knowledgeable. He thoroughly explained how he would service the Minisplit HVAC systems; examined and cleaned the insides and outsides carefully; took photos before and after; showed me the photos explaining the units’ conditions, what my quality of air was inside the house, and what he looked for to catch any degradation now and in future; caught that there was no system surge protection, and installed a new one. Since to double my system’s warranty I need to have qualified technician servicing regularly, I joined the Cool Solutions monthly payment plan and now they call me to schedule. This service call and the install was covered, and I got 20% off the surge protector! Perfect!
A very pleasant and efficient your man. A very thorough service on the A/C . Happy with the result . Thank you

Friendly & Thorough service
Paul - Oceanside, CA
Nice young man... did a thorough job
Very good, as expected.
Bill - Oceanside, CA
Very knowageable, nice and professional. All things I expected based on the reviews. But somtimes you just never know, so I was very pleased that the reviews matched the actual performance. I was a bit surprised by the cost... granted I'm not a HVAC tech so I really had no idea, and we all go into a service call with a preconceived idea of what were in for. I have a condensation pump replaced. My AC/Furnace is a closed unit and my house is on a slab so the condensation must be pumped up through a tube to the attic, and then out to drain outside. I was surprised when the pump, about the size of a shoe box and plastic, came in around $750.00. then labor cost and the supply pcv from the ac to the box was replaced as well. He also opened the old pump box for me as I requested and could see very clearly that it was a complete mess, looked like a jelly fish had exploded in there. Totally disgusting, but could plainly see why it failed, and the critical need and importance of the unit.... It could have lasted longer if I had known to have it serviced and cleaned annually. Made sense based on what I saw. So I will be doing that in the future for sure. I also bought the extended warrantee as insurance and saved a bit on the overall bill with that. All in it was $1,000.00. Excellent service, same day visit, very informed. clean, respectful, completely satisfied. well..except maybe for the cost, but it is what it is! lol... overall, would use again, Even knowing what I know now. thanks Jimmy.

George was very knowledgeable !
Subscription - monthly
Subscription - monthly - Oceanside, CA
Technician was great, diagnostic accurate but cost was too high, no visibility on what you pay for as cost all blended with part value and on top of that only way to get discount was to subscribe to a yearly support service model with monthly payments... Does not make sense to me...
Shu - Oceanside, CA

He did a good job👌
Arnold - Oceanside, CA
Felicia - Oceanside, CA
Jamie was on time, knowledgeable and had the AC cooling in record time. This company had someone out in less than 24 hours during a very busy time and holiday weekend. When I need service again this will definitely be the company I call. Customer service was top notch!
John - Oceanside, CA
I would like to say that the installation team which was Victor Valtierra and Josh did a really good job from the moment they arrived until completion. They came in and explained the installation process to me in it's entirety and then went straight to work. Victor and Josh were both very professional and very respectful throughout the entire process. With Victor being the Lead installer I directed many of my questions to him and man did I have quite a bit of questions and he simply kept me well informed. They both respected my home and left in the shape they entered it and cleaned up after themselves. I would definitely give five stars to Victor Valtierra and Josh for the work they did and the professionalism they displayed at all times. Good job !

Filter is a 14 x 25 x 1, needs to be swapped every one to three months 3. Refrigerant pressures appeared OK at the moment 4. Compressor and fan amps are in range. Mr. Peabody would like an email sent so that next visit we return he would like to replace the starter and renew his membership but would like all his information emailed over for him so that he can prepare for it for next visit.

Preformed full Maintenance and cleaning on outdoor unit. 1. Refrigerant pressures were in range 2. Condenser coil is very dirty and filled with debris 3. Duel secondary motor control is weak on hermetic side terminal which powers the compressor and will put the compressor at a higher risk of failing along with this part. 4. Condenser fan motor is oxidized on shaft but is still spinning properly at this time. 5. Starter has pitting and oxidization on contact point. 6. Filter needs to be swapped every 1-3 months.

Client has been doing repairs over time. As he replaced secondary motor control and added a compressor booster kit. Fan motor is original to system and home and is leaking oil and pulling max amps. Could fail at any time. Primary starter is original and has worn out contact points. Recommend replacing. Checked pressure and are good as unit uses R-22 refrigerant and is no longer I. Production. Inspected indoor unit. Found filter to be hog hair filter but is clean. Blower compartment has build up. Secondary motor control is going weak as itâ€™s boarder line and will go weak over time and fail. Drain lines are dirty. No drain pan under evaporator coil or system. Drain lines donâ€™t have any over flow safety switches to prevent overflow especially since there is no pan. System is cooling at 19 degrees.
Made airflow adjustments to the manual dampers. Adjusted the register damper in the wifeâ€™s office. There is more airflow to the back office and master now.
Condensate drain is making a sound at the upstairs bathroom sink. Tested and confirmed this with water in the drain line. Primed the condensate trap and bled the dampers to reduce thebstatic pressure during operation. tested the equipment. System is no longer making a sound when operating.

Performed diagnostic on 3 head mini split system. Unit is not cooling efficiently. Started by washing condenser coil due to it being too dirty for accurate pressure readings. Gauged up to system and found unit low on refrigerant. Bubble tested condenser flare fittings, no visible leak.

Spoke to Chris about repair options, including pulling all heads off the wall and treating for leaks. Decided to go with immediate fix for now and see how long that holds up. Added approx 3 pounds r410A to system. All heads are now blowing cool air and working correctly. No warranty on refrigerant. System operational upon departure.

Arrived on site to diagnose a 1996 unit not cooling unit. Unpin arrived client wanted system serviced and cycled units and found out door unit or operational. Condenser unit n back yard furnace and Evaporator coil located in attic. Client stated it always worked but she barely uses unit and Ac due to weather out here. Inspected and found primary burnt up and secondary completely bad. Replaced to checked unit and pressure and found unit to be low on charge as well and is causing secondary to fail. Advised client of findings and possibly of a leak present in system due to age and being low. Client stated she barely uses system so would like to Bandaid it up for now as she would like to ore time out of unit. Advised due to it low refrigerant could leak out again in future unless we find where itâ€™s leaking with a leak dye or a sealant and leak dye. Client is aware of old and bad parts and why units is not cooling. Client stated she want to repair for now and dose not want to replace and
