With Orange County home values on the rise and the economy generally moving in a positive direction, we are seeing a lot of homeowners wanting to upgrade their homes with customized audiovisual systems or smart home systems. They may want to upgrade their home’s sound systems to a whole-house audio system, install a dedicated home theater, add home automation and control features, or some other project that will make their home smarter and a more enjoyable place to live and entertain.
Whenever the demand for audiovisual services rises like this, we see new AV companies in Orange County pop up. We saw the same thing happen back in 2006/2007 when the economy was booming and Orange County home values were at an all-time high. It seemed like almost every week, a new AV company in Orange County opened. When the economy began to sour in 2008 and home values began dropping, many of these startup AV companies went under.
We’re beginning to see the same thing happen again. Startup AV companies are in large supply, just like they were a decade ago. We don’t want to disparage startup companies—everyone needs to start somewhere, and we were once a startup company ourselves—but there is definitely something to be said for working with an experienced Orange County audiovisual company that has been around for many years.
First, and probably most importantly, when you work with a company with longevity, like Good Sounds, you can be confident that we will still be in business years from now should you want to make changes or upgrades to any of your systems, or if you ever run into a problem. It’s always best to call in the company that initially installed your system to make any changes since they will have intimate knowledge of it and won’t have to spend their valuable time getting up to speed on your home’s existing technology.
Another reason why it can be an advantage to work with a company that has been in business for as long as we have is because we are familiar with older technology. We’ve been designing and installing home entertainment and home control systems for more than 35 years. We know how to work with older systems and technology, so if you want to add on to your existing systems, we have the know-how to do it. Newer companies may not have experience working with older technology and might encourage you to “start from scratch,” even when it’s not necessary to do so.
Good Sounds has been in business in Orange County since 1980. We’ve seen many companies come and go, but we’re still going strong and are here for our customers when they need our expertise.
