Residential Air Conditioning

No matter what kind of AC services you need, our technicians are prepared to help.

Air conditioners have two indoor components and one outdoor component; the cooling coil and blower make up the interior and the compressor is found on the exterior. As they are tightly connected to work together, if one part needs to be replaced, so will the rest. If a new compressor is mismatched to an old coil, your system will not operate efficiently. It is imperative that you replace both the indoor and outdoor components at the same time to ensure maximum compatibility and prevent your unit from breaking down.

Getting the right sized cooling system is important. If the system is too big, it will cause the unit’s life to be shortened and will increase your energy bills. The size of your air conditioner should be based on your climate. We provide a cooling load calculation to size your system properly. We provide an in-home consultation and will take the time to measure your home properly. We will look for duct leaks and disconnected ducts and will examine the indoor components of your AC (the cooling coil and blower) and the outdoor component (the compressor).

If you are ready to update your old system, we also carry brand new units from the following brands:
