No matter which type of water filtration system your home needs, Sunset Heating & Cooling has you covered. Here's what you can expect during the installation process of your new system.

Before Your Appointment

One to two days before your scheduled installation, our team at Sunset Heating & Cooling will contact you to confirm the time of arrival. Preparation on your part is minimal, but accessibility is key. For example, if you're opting for a Reverse Osmosis system, which will be installed under your kitchen sink, please clear out any items underneath and ensure there's ample space around the sink for our technicians to work efficiently.

For a whole house water filtration system, which is typically installed near your main water line, it's ideal if this area is in your garage. We ask that you move your car out and clear a path to the main water line. Additionally, prepare a space for the system to be set up to facilitate a smooth installation.

During Your Appointment

The installation process generally takes between three to five hours, depending on your home's plumbing specifics. Although this is an average estimate, the exact duration can vary. Please note that your water supply will be shut off for about an hour during installation. We will notify you in advance so you can make any necessary preparations.

After the Appointment

Once the system is installed, our technicians will conduct tests to ensure everything is functioning properly. We'll also assist you in setting up access to our mobile application, enabling you to monitor your water quality, track filter changes, and more.

Expect our team to handle all clean-up after installation and to perform a final system check-up to confirm that your new water filtration system is ready for use. With Sunset Heating & Cooling, you can look forward to a hassle-free installation and the start of cleaner, healthier water at home.

    Charcoal Filters

    How they work: Charcoal, or activated carbon filters, work by adsorption where contaminants in the water are trapped inside the pore structure of the carbon substrate.


    • Affordability: Charcoal filters are among the most budget-friendly options available.
    • Ease of Maintenance: They require minimal upkeep, making them convenient for everyday use.
    • Effectiveness Against Chlorine: Excellent for reducing chlorine, which improves the taste and odor of water.


    • Limited Filtration: While effective against chlorine and some chemicals, charcoal filters do not remove all types of contaminants such as heavy metals or microorganisms.
    • Frequent Replacement Needed: The filters need to be replaced regularly to maintain effectiveness, which can add to long-term costs.

    Sediment Filters

    How they work: Sediment filters remove solid particles such as dirt, rust, and sand from water, typically using a fine mesh to physically trap these particulates.


    • Cost-Effective: These filters are generally inexpensive and effective at removing physical particles.
    • Protects Appliances: By filtering out sediment, these systems can extend the life of plumbing and appliances by preventing clogs and wear.


    • Limited Scope: Sediment filters are primarily effective only against physical impurities like dirt and rust.
    • Requires Secondary Filtration: Often, sediment filters need to be paired with another type of filtration system to ensure comprehensive water purification.

    Water Distillers

    How they work: Water distillers heat water to boiling, then collect the steam in a condenser. The steam cools and reverts to water in a separate container, leaving behind most contaminants.


    • Removes a Broad Range of Contaminants: Water distillers are very effective at eliminating a wide variety of contaminants, including bacteria, viruses, chemicals, and minerals.
    • No Installation Required: Portable units are available that do not require installation.


    • High Energy Usage: Distillers require a significant amount of electricity to operate, which can increase your energy bills.
    • Slow Process: The distillation process can be time-consuming, making it less convenient for immediate use of large amounts of water.

    Reverse Osmosis Filters

    How it works: This system forces water through a semi-permeable membrane that blocks contaminants but allows water molecules to pass through.


    • Highly Effective: This system removes up to 99% of all contaminants, including heavy metals, fluoride, and microorganisms.
    • Improves Taste: The thorough filtration process results in cleaner, fresher tasting water.


    • Wastewater: Reverse osmosis systems produce a considerable amount of wastewater compared to the clean water output.
    • Cost and Maintenance: These systems are typically more expensive and require more maintenance than other filters.

    UV Filters

    How they work: UV water filters use ultraviolet light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying their DNA.


    • Kills Pathogens: UV filtration is extremely effective at destroying bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens.
    • Chemical-Free: This method does not use any chemicals, making it environmentally friendly.


    • Limited Functionality: UV filters only kill organisms; they do not remove chemical contaminants, heavy metals, or improve the water’s taste or odor.
    • Energy Dependent: Requires a constant power supply to operate the UV lamp, and frequent bulb changes are needed.

    Maintenance Plans

    Regular maintenance is crucial to keeping your HVAC systems working efficiently and safely. When you sign up for our Sunset Service Plan, not only do you get an annual inspection and tune-up of your system, but you also have the added benefit of working with a team that knows your unit’s repair and maintenance history.

    The Benefits of a Whole House Water Filter

    Whole house water filters offer an effective solution for ensuring the purity of your water throughout your entire household. Here are the key benefits of installing such a system:


    • Improved Water Quality: The system filters out a wide array of impurities, including chlorine, heavy metals, pesticides, and organic compounds. This results in better-tasting and smelling water, enhancing your daily consumption and usage.
    • Health Benefits: By removing harmful contaminants, water filter systems provide safer drinking water, reducing potential health risks associated with unfiltered water. They also minimize skin and hair exposure to harsh chemicals, helping to prevent dryness and irritation.
    • Protection of Plumbing and Appliances: The filtration system prevents sediment and mineral buildup, which can lead to scale and clogs. This extends the lifespan of plumbing fixtures and appliances by maintaining clear and clean water flow, thereby reducing the need for frequent repairs and replacements.
    • Cost Efficiency: By enhancing the efficiency and performance of home water systems and reducing maintenance needs, the system can lead to significant cost savings over time.
    • Environmentally Friendly: Reducing dependency on bottled water minimizes plastic waste, contributing to environmental conservation. Moreover, fewer chemicals and contaminants are released back into the environment when water is cleaner at its source.
