HVAC Contractors Van Nuys, CA: Heating & Air Conditioning Installation, Repair & Tune-up Services

Van Nuys has a year-round climate close to paradise, and that is probably what contributes to Van Nuys being the most populated neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley. But even paradise has its share of hot and cold weather, with temperatures ranging from 89°f in the summer to 46°f in the winter. Year-round living is definitely made better with a stable, working HVAC unit.

Your HVAC unit will need maintenance. There’s no avoiding it. Even the most advanced systems will experience strain or worn-out parts. Minor problems can develop into significant issues if you ignore them. Here are some examples of small signs you have a developing problem:

  • Fluctuating temperatures between rooms
  • Foul odors
  • Strange noises
  • Rising electric bills
  • Extreme condensation
  • Poor airflow
  • Increased dirt and dust

Make American AC Heat Plumbing your first call for any of your HVAC needs. We have nearly 40 years of experience in resolving any heating and air conditioning issues that may crop up. We have deep roots in the Van Nuys/Los Angeles area. Since we opened our business in 1981, we have remained a family and locally-owned HVAC contractor. You can call us neighbors since we work and live in the same community.

We pride ourselves on providing quality installations and repairs with excellent customer service. We proudly offer all our services with our guarantee. If this hasn’t been your experience with other HVAC contractors, you need to experience our service yourself.

No one is ever thrilled to hear they need their entire HVAC unit replaced. You’ll appreciate the efficiency and skill of our trained technicians as they install a new, optimally designed HVAC system for your home. They ensure the unit is the proper size and configuration for your home. And they’ll install it with as little disruption as possible.

You and your family will usually return to a cooler frame of mind and a sweat-free environment in a matter of hours. Your days of worrying if your unit will last another season will be a distant memory.

You won’t have sticker shock from the invoice, either. We give you multiple up-front estimates on replacement options and our recommendation for the best fit. When we give you the figures, we remove all the uncomfortable surprises from the equation. And since your unit may have died without warning, we also offer various HVAC financing options to fit your budget. We work with you through the entire process to find the best HVAC system for your home. We aren’t comfortable until you are.


If your HVAC unit has had a breakdown, you don’t want to do without any longer than you need to. We encourage our customers to call as soon as they notice something out of the ordinary. This helps to catch a developing problem before the situation gets out of hand. But sometimes, even with the best of care and maintenance, a unit will stop working without warning. You don’t want excuses or to be placed on a weeks-long schedule, and you want results. Fast.

Our capable technicians have the rigorous training and experience they need to get your HVAC system running in top shape. Warm air and weird noises will be a thing of the past. And since most breakdowns don’t announce themselves first, we offer 24/7 emergency repair services. After a properly diagnosed repair, you and your loved ones will feel more like themselves.

Here’s a list of the most common repairs that we perform:

AC Repair

There’s nothing worse than having to call and pay for the same services continually. We believe our customers deserve better than to be trapped within an endless repair cycle. That’s why our techs undergo extensive training to identify and fix air-conditioning problems on site.
Because of this training, we can give you our written guarantee upon completion. This states that the repair work we perform will be free from defects in material and workmanship for one year unless otherwise stated in writing. We give you the security of knowing your repairs will be done correctly.

Heating Repair

You don’t need to use your heat very often in Van Nuys. But when temperatures drop into the 40s, they will stay there for most of the winter season. You need to know you’ll have a warm home when you need it. Our technicians are trained to spot and fix the source of the problem. When your heating fails, we can tell if it’s a blower failure, heat exchange problem, or gas valve trouble. Then we’ll fix the problem quickly to make your home cozy again.

Thermostat Repair & Replacement

A creeping electric bill may be signaling a faulty thermostat. Our techs know how to test your thermostat for many possible failure causes, and they can usually restore it to working order right then and there.

If it turns out your thermostat cannot be repaired, we can offer several programmable and customizable options. Modern thermostats are capable of getting maximum efficiency from your HVAC system. For instance, a smart thermostat can allow you to set different temperatures when you leave for work and school. It can then automatically adjust right before you come home. They can even be pre-programmed to account for the changing of the seasons. Your energy bills will reflect the improved stability of the system with lower costs.

Attic Insulation & Radiant Barrier

Most people don’t associate insulation with their HVAC unit but are closely connected. Sealing and insulating your home’s protective “shell” can improve comfort and energy efficiency. In fact, you could save up to 30% on your heating and cooling costs by properly insulating your attic space. And you’ll have the added benefit of extending the life of your HVAC unit by saving it from overwork.

Our environmentally-friendly materials are fire retardant, absorb greenhouse gasses, and will increase the value of your home.

We will also inspect your insulation levels to see if you meet the federal Dept. of Energy guidelines. If you should add insulation, we’ll check for and pursue any tax credits and gas company rebates on your behalf to help offset the costs. Just one more way American AC Heat Plumbing goes the extra mile for our customers.

Air Duct Cleaning & Sealing

We recommend professional air duct cleaning every five years in the Van Nuys climate. With clean and well-sealed air ducts, your indoor air will be cleaner, with fewer germs and dust circulating. Your respiratory health may even see an improvement.

Your indoor air can be 65-75% more polluted than outside air. Did you know the average home creates more than 40lbs of dust annually (Discover Magazine)? And half of all illnesses are caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air, according to the American College of Allergists. And similar to a finding by “”, 20-30% of your home’s air can be saved from escaping through leaks, holes, and poorly connected ductwork with regular cleaning and inspecting of your air ducts.

Your system will be more efficient, and essential components will last longer with regular duct cleaning. Our techs will also be able to spot inefficient duct placement and recommend solutions once they have removed the dust and particulates.

Blue Safety Ductwork

Blue Safety Ductwork may be another beneficial solution for your home’s air. With normal ducting, contaminants that can cause illness, aggravate asthma, and other respiratory ailments constantly circulate throughout your home.

Blue Safety Ductwork improves the air quality inside, can help you to save on your utility bills, and is environmentally friendly. Ask your technician if this is an option for your family’s home.

Tune-Up Services

We perform regular tune-ups for our vehicles, lawnmowers, and even our own bodies with yearly physicals. Why? We don’t want to get caught off-guard by costly repairs or stranded by an unexpected malfunction. The exact reasons make tune-ups for your HVAC system a necessity. And in some cases, tune-ups are required, along with regular cleanings, to keep your HVAC system’s warranty valid.

This is why our $129 Tune-Up has one of the best-written guarantees in the business. We start with a 100% risk-free guarantee. If you are unhappy for any reason, we’ll return your tune-up fee- NO QUESTIONS ASKED!

And we don’t stop there! We follow up with a 100% ROI guarantee. We include in writing that your next 5 months of utility bills are at least $129 or less, or we’ll refund the tune-up amount- NO QUESTIONS ASKED!

You’ll also receive a 5-month complete Parts & Labor Warranty, free after the tune-up and cleaning have been performed, and the serviced equipment has been certified.

At American AC Heat Plumbing, we can offer these guarantees because we stand behind the quality of all our work, all the time. Our tune-up is a win-win for our customers.

Service Club
