Welcome to our Blog!

We are pleased to announce that Benchmark Air Conditioning, a Bakersfield HVAC company is starting a blog! For the benefit of our Bakersfield customers, we will be publishing a blog post every month on topics related to heating, air conditioning, ductwork, efficiency, and of course some energy saving tips. As an experienced HVAC contractor, we hope that you will find our expertise on this blog informative and helpful!


Why are we doing a blog, and what will we talk about?

First and foremost, we believe in educating our customers and visitors so much so that it is one of our core operating principles. We feel it is very important for us to educate our customers on our industry and products, as well as what you can do to help keep your HVAC system in good working order.

In addition, we will also use this blog to answer common questions our customers have submitted on such topics like how HVAC equipment works, and the pros and cons of ductless air conditioners. We also hope to include some tips on how you can lower your energy bills and save energy.


We welcome feedback!

We are looking forward to using this platform as a way to engage with our customers in Bakersfield and surrounding areas. We hope you’ll reach out to us with any questions, suggestions, comments, or stories of your own experience. We welcome any stories you may have on HVAC maintenance, ductless systems, or hiring an HVAC contractor. Thank you for following along with our new HVAC company blog!

When’s the last time you had your heater serviced?

We recommend you have your heaters, furnaces and/or heat pumps serviced annually to ensure it is running safely and efficiently. While folks are usually pretty good about getting their AC serviced, they often forget that a heater needs the same regular maintenance too – and can be dangerous if not maintained. A dirty heater can be a big fire risk, while a poorly maintained system has the potential to leak carbon monoxide. We can make sure your family and house are safe – give us a call to service your heater before it’s time to use it again.

Could your energy bill be 15% lower?

If they were to take a look, there’s a good chance they’d find a loose vent or even a torn duct blowing air into their attic. Even if you don’t have a leaky system, there’s still often the potential to create a more efficient system. We know now that the way many older residential and commercial spaces had their ducting run isn’t the most efficient – but we can fix it. We’ll inspect your entire air conditioning and heating system for any leaks, tears, inefficiencies or air flow blocks and provide repairs.
