You’ve Got Options
When your home needs a new cooling system for improved indoor comfort, we offer a variety of options. We've partnered with the leading manufacturers in the industry to offer the most modern and energy efficient products available.
Central Air Conditioner
A common misconception is that air conditioners pump cold air into your home, they actually do the exact opposite. AC's instead use fans to suck hot air out of your home or office and cycle it through refrigerated lines, pumping the hot air outdoors.
Air conditioners are ideal for cooling large homes or spaces. Electrical cooling system utilizing blowers are more costly for cooling large spaces. If you have a large home or office, strategically placed outdoor AC units could save you big in the long run. Air conditioners are often placed outdoors and don’t take up space in your house. Standard AC units house an intake vent, coil, and valves.
Air handlers work in conjunction with both your heating and cooling systems to provide reliable and consistent temperatures to your home. Air Handlers are typically placed indoors and house the necessary components to produce a strong, reliable flow of air at your optimal conditions.
Although not necessary for all HVAC systems, air handlers add reliability by utilizing a blower to rapidly pump air into your home. Indoor housing of your systems coils (the heart of your heating or cooling units) allows for convenient maintenance when the inevitable occurs.
Air handlers are essential if you are using an electrical cooling system or a heat pump. They can be also be used with more conventional systems providing additional power and more consistent temperatures in your home.
A heat pump offers heating, cooling, and humidity control. They look and function the same as air conditioners for cooling, but in cool months when heat is called for, they reverse operation to provide warmth for your home.
These days, modern programmable thermostats allow you to save money and enjoy greater comfort in your home in a variety of ways. You can program your unit to heat (or cool) the house when you are home, and rest when you are away. This causes your unit to achieve more balance and greater efficiency, all of which saves you money when the energy bill is due!
Wifi Thermostats add an extra bonus – allowing you to control the temperature of your home from wherever you are. Imagine heating the house up a little bit prior to arriving home after a long day!
Ductless HVAC systems (also known as Mini-Splits) are a great way to heat and cool a small space or an older home without major modifications. If your air ducts are in bad shape, a ductless system can be a good option as you don’t have to replace or seal the ducts.
The top reasons to install a Ductless HVAC system include having more control over individual zones, being more energy efficient, easier to repair and they are quiet.
A Ductless system uses small air blowers that both heat and cool air over evaporator coils. This avoids having to add any large ducts to the ceilings or walls. The unit runs a line into the walls that leads to an outdoor compressor and fan.
Zoning systems divide rooms or floors of your house into different controllable “zones”. For instance, if you are mostly upstairs, you can enjoy greater comfort by having a zoning system that keeps that floor a certain temperature. Perhaps it is a few degrees cooler than the downstairs. Zoning systems are mainly installed to enjoy greater comfort but in some cases you may end up saving money as well.
For a single-story home, hot and cold spots can shift in different rooms as the sun moves throughout the day. In addition, windows, large trees, and skylights can influence the indoor temperature. The comfort in each room often changes as the day goes on, which is why a zoning system can establish a nice equilibrium to your single-story home.
