Clarke & Rush has specialized in air conditioning services for more than 50 years. We are proud to be an approved Energy Star Contractor. This allows us to offer our customers high quality air conditioning units that conserve energy and deliver total comfort.

There are numerous benefits to homeowners who run Energy Star air conditioning units. It is known that HVAC systems can consume half of a home’s total energy costs – and in places as hot as Sacramento, air conditioning could even increase that cost. If your HVAC system is more than 12 years old, you are probably paying significantly more for air conditioning than you need to be. By upgrading to an Energy Star air conditioning system, you can stand to save up to 30% each month on your energy bill!

In order to be able to offer the best possible AC units for our customers, we took a careful look at our local market. We determined that it was important to offer units that would provide high efficiency, effectiveness, reliability, low noise, and a great warranty at a price that makes sense. After scouring all of the offerings out there, we chose the companies American Standard, Carrier, and Lennox HVAC for our customers. The models offered by these companies excel in delivering energy and cost savings with highly effective air conditioning. In addition, these air conditioning units are ozone friendly, are Federal EPA & Energy Star approved, and Energy Upgrade California approved. These units are so impressive that several utility companies are offering rebates and incentives (SMUD, PG&E, and Roseville Electric) to upgrade to a new unit! With financing options from SMUD, Ygrene and mPOWER, replacing your old air conditioning system is easy!

In order to create a custom plan for your home, we do a thorough inspection of your home’s ventilation system. This includes a thorough check of the duct system that will be delivering air conditioning throughout your home. This is done to check for any leaks or obstructions that will lower your systems overall efficiency. Proper airflow is key to efficient air conditioning. We then help you select the air conditioning unit that will best fit your needs and deliver optimal results for many years to come. Further more, our HVAC teams will perform preliminary assessments to ensure long-term satisfaction with your new air conditioning system.

To further lower the energy costs of your air conditioning, we also suggest installation of a programmable thermostat. This option is great for working families – program the thermostat to run the system less while you’re away from your home, and then cool the house down just before you return. This simple adjustment could save you an estimated $180 a year!

There’s nothing quite like facing a day of 100-degree temperatures in a home with unreliable air conditioning. Sacramento has an average of 74 days a year when the mercury rises to at least 90 degrees and 22 days of over 100 degree weather! For this reason, it is best to perform regular tune-ups on your AC unit so it doesn’t go down when the temperatures go up!

As air conditioning specialists, we know what a big difference planned maintenance can make to your HVAC system. Being ready for those hot days means planning ahead. With Clarke & Rush’s Planned Maintenance services, our techs will visit your home twice a year. We check the critical elements of your HVAC unit to make sure you don’t face any unwelcome surprises when you switch on the air conditioning. Sacramento weather is sometimes unpredictable and very hot days are not limited to the summer months.

Some of simple maintenance can be as easy as changing the filter on your AC system! When the filter is changed and clean, your air conditioner works efficiently. When it’s dirty, the unit has to work harder, wasting costly energy. In addition, a dirty filter has a ‘snowball effect’ on your whole system. It sends the dust and dirt further along your HVAC system, potentially causing build up that will require expensive repairs down the road. Customers with a Clarke & Rush Biannual Energy Savings Plan can have confidence that their unit will deliver cool air when they need it most. Your air conditioning unit is like your car – it needs regular tune-ups and service to be in peak running condition.

Everyone knows they should clean the air filters on their heating and air conditioning units, but is it really worth it? There are so many tasks that must be accomplished around the home, no one wants to add anything to their never-ending to-do list unless it has some actual benefit. Changing your air filter is simple through the help of an air conditioning maintenance contractor in Sacramento.



It is very important to have regular maintenance performed on your heating and air conditioning units. Tune-ups ensure an air conditioning unit is running at its optimal efficiency and helps the machine last as long as possible. If an air conditioning unit is neglected, it is more likely to break down. An unexpected failure of an air conditioning system can be more than uncomfortable – in extreme conditions it can even be dangerous. Air conditioning and heating systems should get a maintenance check every year from the help of an air conditioning service contractor in Sacramento.



Thermostats detect the temperature of a room and compare this to the desired temperature, activating the home’s heating or cooling components when the comparison differs significantly. Thermostats do their job quietly without requiring too much outside work. When they do stop functioning, everyone in the home is likely to notice and perhaps panic. Before calling an ac repair company, first check that the thermostat is not to blame and then seek air conditioning repair in Sacramento.



The first big heat wave of the year seems to catch just about everyone off guard and results in a huge surge of air conditioning sales. The last thing a homeowner wants to do in the hottest days of summer is to have to replace a broken air conditioning system. The desperation of needing a new system during a heat wave can lead to frustration and rash decisions. Two things can lead to subpar consequences. For most homeowners, the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system in our own homes is a bit of a mystery and replacing any equipment can seem rather daunting. This article aims to clarify what one should expect when replacing an air conditioning unit and how to avoid getting taken advantage of or making uneducated decisions. It’s always best to speak to an AC installation contractor in Sacramento for any specific questions you may have.
