McKenney's Air Conditioning Inc
AC and fan quit working. Called a well known chain department store. Their tech came out, never checked the compressor or unit in the attic, did a wattage use survey, assumed we needed an entire new system, quoted $11,000. Next called a well known local AC business. They came out, checked the compressor, said it was toast, then went into the attic, checked the unit, made no comment, quoted me $7,900 for a new system. Called McKenney's and spoke with Dave. Explained my problem and asked what a new system would cost. He said wait a minute, lets find out what's wrong before talking about a new system. His tech came out, confirmed the compressor was shot, went into the attic, and said did you know the access door to the unit was open? I said no, he then advised the fan wouldn't work with the door open. He closed it and the fan worked fine. (see second contractor above) McKenney's installed a new efficient compressor with an upgrade to the attic system to use the new compressor. Cost was less than a third of the next cheapest quote. McKenney's is honest, professional, responsive, and won't try to shaft you like two other companies I dealt with. Highly recommend!!

Definitely will be calling central california air for my future a/c services. The tech is very knowledgeable and professional, nice and clean work. Liked how he explain what the problem was and what he would be doing to leave it 100%. The price compared to others i've contacted is very reasonable. Also very convenient that he gives a free estimate. I am a happy customer. Most definitely recommend giving them a call.

Tips & Advices
You can keep your air conditioner running efficiently with some preventative care measures. Shut off the power to your AC before cleaning it or performing any of these tasks:  clean your filter at least twice a year; remove leaves and twigs from cages; clean the fins with a garden hose or special spray, then use a butter knife to straighten any that are crooked; keep your yard clean so the fins won't get blocked; cover the unit up for winter; and make sure it's level or you run the risk of damaging the inner workings of the unit.
To clean your air conditioner drain, first shut off the power to your unit at both the thermostat and the breaker. Then remove the drain pan. If the pan is full of water, soak up the liquid with a few towels or rags or use a wet vacuum. You can use a solution of water and distilled vinegar, or substitute peroxide for the vinegar, to clean out the drain pipe. Let the pipe sit for a while in the solution and then put all the parts back in place. Once you start using your air conditioner on a regular basis, check it periodically to ensure condensation isn't building up.
If you happen to live in a hot and humid area of the country, drainage problems can occur with your unit since moisture can trap itself inside the system. Routine maintenance can cut down on drainage issues by cleaning out any mold or algae from blocking the drain. If you notice moldy smells whenever you turn the thermostat down, check on your system.
If you notice your system is acting inconsistently, the sensor is most likely out of place. Turn off the unit and reach behind its control panel while carefully bending the sensor back into place near the evaporative coil.
Find out where the noises are coming from. A banging or clanking sound could be due to a loose part. If you hear a hissing sound, it's most likely because of a refrigerant leak and you should contact an HVAC technician as soon as possible.
