D&H offering air conditioning repair calls in the Tortolita area: ask for the Family Plan to lower your service costs


HVAC technician appointment for air conditioning repair service All too often, we meet with local people whose air conditioning system is out of warranty. No manufacturer warranty anymore, the A/C was bought with the house and it was nearing its warranty expiration then or was already expired, and no one renewed. 

This is a non-optimal situation because when anything breaks (not “if”, but ‘”when”), the cost bears entirely on the home owners. And very often, air conditioning systems being complicated machines, the cost of parts is very significant.

Several years ago, seeing this situation over and over while responding to air conditioning repair service calls, D&H AC came up with a solution to palliate the lack of valid manufacturer warranty. This was the Family Plan contract: in just a few words, Family Plan is a contract between D&H AC and you, homeowner, to perform a 360° inspection, system check and clean-up on your full A/C system, whatever the make and model, whatever its age, and whoever installed it.

Family Plan does not stop here. You also have priority service whenever you call for service, and emergency dispatch if your A/C goes down between maintenance calls. On top of that, you receive discounts on parts and labor if we need to replace anything.

All this for just pennies a day, easily recouped.

More than all this, the Family Plan gives you peace of mind that your HVAC is properly serviced according to manufacturer’s specificatins. Our technicians are NATE-Certified and we have stringent quality control and training programs that ensure the service level is top notch all the time. Not to say that we can’t make errors: that happens. But it’s extremely rare, and when we do, we also do everything in our power to catch up and make sure our customers remain happy.

How can you benefit today from the Family Plan? Just call our hotline at [phone], and ask for more details about it. If you think it is for you, just ask to subscribe to it, you will be immediately covered and your first air conditioning inspection will take place very rapidly.

Where do our technicians repair air conditioning in the Tortolita neighborhood?


D&H has a strong presence in the Tortolita neighborhood, with over 200 installs between Lambert Ln and Tangerine.

Here’s a summary of an air conditioning repair call we did recently:

“We were in Tortolita, performing spring maintenance on 4 year-old Daikin gas split system. We serviced and checked the system for proper operation. We checked the refrigerant levels, motor amps, current controllers, unit starter, electrical connections, wiring, temps, safeties, static pressures, ducts, drain, filter, coils, compressor ohms, and thermostat. We cleared out the drain line and washed the condenser coils. No issues requiring immediate attention at this time, but we installed a hard start kit to help the compressor. This Daikin unit is cooling beautifully at this time.”


N Western Fork Trail, Tortolita 85742We were on North Western Fork Trail, in the 85742 zip, servicing two Daikin split gas furnaces. We checked and tightened all electrical connections, we checked the igniter Ohms and cleaned the flame sensor. We vacuumed and cleaned up the burner housing, vacuumed and cleared out the condensation drain. We inspected the blower motor and the blower wheel, checked the filters. The problem is that downstairs, the air filter is super restrictive. Upstairs the filters needed to be replaced. We recommended our customer the Pristine Air Cleaner. We started up the unit, checked amp draws on the inducer draft motor, checked the pressure switch of the inducer draft motor to make sure it was opening and closing properly. We checked the amp draws on the blower motor and safety switches. We performed a carbon monoxide test and gas leak check, and both came out negative. The 2 units are operating normally at this time. All done under the coverage of our Family Plan, no extra cost to our client.

Fun Facts about Tortolita

Tortolita was a census-designated place in Pima County, Arizona, United States. The population was 3,740 at the 2000 census. Tortolita was situated between the growing incorporated towns of Oro Valley and Marana with most of the area previously part of the CDP having been annexed by the two towns during the 2000s.

Tortolita Mountains is from the Spanish and means “little turtle dove.” Here is a part of the short history and description of the Tortolita Mountains: “this is the same locality which Font in 1775 called Llano del Azotado (llano=plain; azotado=a flogged man) because on the plain near these mountains a deserting muleteer was caught and flogged.  In 1880 they were called Bloodsucker Mountains.  The current name, as was noted in 1916, derives from the fact that there were multitudes of small doves here prior to 1916.”
