Being successful in the heating and air conditioning business takes a special knack. As well as honesty, integrity and respect for our customers, developing a strong and loyal customer base is mandatory. These traits have been the key to our success. Countless so-called competitors have come and gone since Julian Kahn started Kahn Air Conditioning in 1961.
The majority of our new customers are gained through word-of-mouth advertising. By installing quality heating and air conditioning products properly insures that we can count on our devoted customer base who continues to refer their friends, neighbors and relatives. It is very satisfying, after a job has been completed, when the homeowner realizes that they made the right choice in selecting a contractor.
Many changes have taken place regarding air conditioning systems during the past several years. Minimum efficiency ratings have risen by 30%. The refrigerant (Freon R-22) that has been used for many years is being phased-out, and is being replaced by a new refrigerant (R-410a), known as Puron. Duct testing has become another requirement whenever a heating or air conditioning system is modified.
These changes have proven challenging for businesses and homeowners alike. That’s why it is critical to be able to place your trust in a company that is committed to providing its’ customers with quality service, and one that is current with all of the new laws and regulations, as well as the most up-to-date installation procedures.
At Kahn, we utilize quality materials, quality Carrier products, and perform all of our work using the best industry-accepted installation practices. All of our factory-trained installation technicians are full-time Kahn employees. We do not use subcontractors.
Unfortunately, I see numerous heating and air conditioning systems that were not installed properly. Believe it or not, these jobs were usually installed by a contractor that had the lowest price – go figure!
Since heating and air conditioning systems are fairly technical, homeowners need to be informed about them so they can purchase a quality system that will last a long time, perform as it should, and save them electricity.
Our commitment to the community service is demonstrated each month when we conduct our free Homeowner Workshops. Interested homeowners who attend will learn about various aspects of residential heating and air conditioning systems. In just a couple of hours, on a Saturday morning, homeowners can gain a genuine understanding about air filtration, thermostats, duct sizing, efficiency ratings, code requirements, load calculations and much more.
If you are interested in attending our next workshop call Alex at (818) 886-2600 to find out the date and time and to reserve your spot. If you have any questions about the workshop or any other, aspects about heating and air conditioning please call us or send me an e-mail to [email protected].
