Autumn is here, and we’re getting ready to help our customers keep their homes comfortable and clean as the season's change.
Are you doing all that you can to keep your HVAC system working efficiently, your energy costs down, and your indoor air as clean and comfortable as possible? Take a look at our seven tips for avoiding common fall HVAC mistakes below:
Your ventilation system is an often-overlooked aspect of your home’s heating and cooling system, but booking a professional inspection of your vents and ducts can make a big difference in how comfortable you feel at home.
When your ventilation system is working properly, your HVAC system uses less energy to distribute comfortable air from room to room and ensuring that your vents are working properly can eliminate irritants and help keep your air clean.
Changing your filters is one of the easiest ways to stay healthy during the cooler months. This is because when your filters get clogged, they become less efficient at filtering out viruses, dander, and other unpleasant elements which can make you sick and impede your comfort.
Not only do clean filters keep you healthier, but properly filtered air puts less strain on your system overall, helping it last longer and work more efficiently.
One of the easiest ways to drive up your energy costs and spend more than necessary on your HVAC system is to continue to use heating and cooling units which should have been discontinued years ago.
Old systems work less efficiently, which pushes up your energy costs and can lead to expensive emergency repairs and installation services. Instead, spend the time and money to invest in your at-home comfort by installing a new unit.
Many homeowners try to keep costs low by keeping their homes a single, static temperature year-round, but this can damage your system and cause your energy bills to go up.
Our HVAC experts recommend keeping your home around 72 degrees Fahrenheit day-to-day, and only changing the temperature during unusually cold or warm days.
Skipping maintenance on your heating and cooling system is one of the fastest ways to ensure that your system wears out and breaks down on you. Especially as we move into the autumn season, it’s important to book an inspection with an HVAC professional to make sure that your heating and cooling units are working properly and do not need repairs and servicing.
Turning off your heater may seem like a great way to save on energy costs, but when you turn your unit back on it has to over-work to get to where it once was, which can put extra strain on your system and cause your unit to wear out faster.
If you feel too hot when your heater is on, we recommend keeping your home around 68 degrees Fahrenheit, which is a little cooler than normal, instead of turning off your system entirely.
Avoid playing with your HVAC settings whenever possible, as constant changes can impact your system’s performance. If you feel uncomfortable, try putting on a sweater or opening a window instead of changing the temperatures every few days.

Raul De La Luz provided prompt and courteous service in addressing my plumbing issue. Unplugged the toilet and was able to recover (avoiding possible future plugging) the cleaning materials inadvertently flushed away! Thank you. Bob C|Newport Beach, CA
I needed help unclogging my shower drainage. The technician, Mr. Raul De La Luz was very polite, professional, and efficient. He took care of the issue in less than half hour. And when he was done, the area was clean and back to the way it was before he came. I am very satisfied with his service. M. Tran|Irvine, CA
We are very satisfied with their service. Erick is very easy to deal with. He constantly update us regarding his arrival time. We had a floor leak to which he is supposed to detect the slab leak. At the moment he arrived at our place, my husband already found the leak so we don't need his services. We are willing to pay Erick a dispatch fee but he said don't worry about it. He also gave us some advises about how to deal with our leaks. He is very professional. Will definitely use Dial One Soneshine again. Han C.

Having moved to the OC recently, we were in need of an HVAC electrician. We found Dial One Sonshine online and called to set up an appointment. Dustin arrived on time and proceeded to replace our old thermostat with a new one. Once it was installed, he checked to see that everything (heat, A/C, fan only) worked properly. We were so happy with the results that we signed up for an annual checkup for the furnace (fall) and air conditioner (spring). Count us among the many satisfied customers Chuck R.
John was amazing and totally helped us out. Nicole was curtious when I called to make the appointment and very helpful. Melinda called us 30 minutes before John showed up, letting us know he was on his way. Perfect service! Michelle L
