We specialize in full system installs for both residential and light commercial projects. If your air conditioning or heating unit needs to be changed out or to just have a system installed in your new home, we will find the right system to fit your life style.
We offer a wide range of A/C and Heating services and products to ensure that we meet all of your cooling and heating needs. Your comfort is our interest, whether you need your air conditioning unit repaired, maintained or replaced, we can help. We are highly trained in all areas of air conditioning and heating equipment field, inspection procedures and repair services. If you need an air conditioning system installed, we can promptly install your new A/C or Heating unit at an affordable price.
Your existing system can provide you with more than a decade of reliable A/C and heating service. However, it’s important to realize that newly designed equipment has been out on the market in the years since your system was installed. Efficiency levels are at an all-time high. There are numerous incentives that exist to encourage the upgrading and installation of a more efficient system. With improved energy efficiency, you can obtain ideal comfort in your household this summer/winter without experiencing an increase in your light bill. In fact, your bills should decrease dramatically.
In the event your household’s HVAC system is unable to be repaired, our skilled technicians can install a new system quickly to give you and your family maximum comfort. If you ever want to improve your system for any reason, including safety devices, reliability, digital/programmable thermostats for better operation, or other concerns you might have, we can help you choose from a wide variety of top-quality A/C and heating equipment with extended warranties providing up to 10 years of coverage.
Rather than replace a system with one of the same energy efficiencies, we encourage the use of higher efficiency equipment. A system can have many added features that ensure increased comfort, safety, and durability in addition to reduced energy use include but are not limited to:
Having correctly sized equipment to better match the building load of your home is also essential for energy savings and more cycle time.
Better controllers, for example, digital/programmable thermostats.
An operators manual, so that homeowners can get the most out of their HVAC system and know when/if things are going wrong.
We specialize in both complete and partial system repairs for both residential and light commercial projects. If your air conditioning or heating unit has any problems, we will find that problem and repair it.
Here is a general list of just some of the services we provide for a complete or partial system repair:
Bad Contactor – There are three contactors in a unit, one for the compressor, one for the condenser fan motor, and one for the blower motor. These contactors engage when the thermostat is set to call for cooling or heating, making an electrical connection. Once the connection is made, it will start the compressor and motors. Excessive wear will form on the contactor during the hot mid-summer, making it hard for the electrical current to pass-through connections and start the system.
Refrigerant leaks – Refrigerant leaks can happen over time due to the vibration of the unit while it is operating mode. Refrigerant leaks in the condenser or evaporator coils are sometimes hard to be found and repaired depending on the location of the leak. If the leak is found in another place where the technician can repair the leak, they can recover what refrigerant is left and then repair the leak. After the repair, then charge the unit levels back to their correct amount.
Condenser Coils – The condenser coils are always located outside with the compressor. They are exposed to the outdoor weather, so they often get dirty and should be cleaned at least once a year, twice if the unit is a heat pump. This can be done with a water hose when the unit is not operating mode. If the dirt and debris get bad enough, an HVAC technician will have to clean the coil with a chemical cleaner.
Compressors – This is the heart of the A/C unit. The compressor is located outside with the condenser coil. If the unit is undercharged with refrigerant, the compressor will either freeze up the evaporator coil inside or run high temperatures and will eventually seize. If the unit is overcharged, your unit won’t cool as well and liquid refrigerant will get back to the compressor and cause liquid slugging. It is imperative that the A/C unit has the correct amount of refrigerant in the system.
Evaporator Coil – On split systems, the evaporator coil is located in the attic, and if the air filter is not changed on a regular schedule (which is one of the most common problems), the evaporator coil will collect dirt and debris, this leaves no choice but to have the evaporator coil pulled and cleaned manually. Cleaning will only be necessary if suggested by the technician and should only be about every three years or so, depending on how well and often the air filter is changed. Your heating and cooling needs can range from installing an air conditioning system or furnace to more minor fixes, like installing a thermostat or repairing worn parts to your system.
Your heating and cooling system is one of the most important aspects of home maintenance, one you will notice the most when it’s not working.
HVAC Diagnostic Services are important when determining what needs to be addressed when servicing your HVAC unit. The test results will allow the HVAC technician to inspect the HVAC system to determine whether it is operating correctly and if not to make further tests to locate the faulty part of the system and to correct the cause of the problem.
Listed below are some of the most common problems the technician finds:
Drain Lines – The drain line commonly becomes clogged with dirt or algae. If a clogged drain occurs and does not have the proper safety inline switches, the drain pan will fill up and cause water to leak over and create mold and water damage.
Blown Fuses – Fuses protect the unit’s motor or compressor against over amping and overheating, but also can be caused due to a short in the system. When a motor is suspected of going bad, the Amp draw is one of the first things the technician checks. If the motor is not running, the second thing to check is whether the unit has power or not at the disconnect box.
Capacitors – The run capacitor is used to help the motors of the unit run at a consistent speed. Start capacitors give the compressor a brief increase in starting torque. If either capacitor burns out, it will need to be replaced for your HVAC to work properly.
Gas Valve – The gas valve meters the gas to flow from your gas line to your unit. They are only used during the cold season. Sometimes the gas valve gets corroded due to moisture over the years. If this is the case, it will need to be replaced.

Many factors can influence the potential savings on your energy bill, including efficiency rated equipment and having the right-sized system for your home including:
Having performed preventative maintenance before the summer and winter seasons begin. Asking us professionals to check your system will increase the life span of the system, improve energy efficiency, reduce pollutants and save you money.
Use fans around the house to maintain a comfortable temperature, humidity, and air movement, and also save energy year-round. Moving air can somewhat make a higher temperature room feel comfortable. Fans can help delay or reduce the need for air conditioning and to have a temperature setting of only three to five degrees higher can feel as comfortable with fans. When the temperature outside is more comfortable than inside, a “box fan” in the window, or a large fan in the attic can push air out and pull in comfortable air from the outside.
A dirty filter can restrict airflow and increase energy use in your home. By keeping your air filter clean, you are also keeping your evaporator and blower wheel clean. To increase the efficiency of your furnace, replace or clean filters once a month during operating seasons.
Don’t place lamps, TV sets, or other heat-producing devices near or around a wall-mounted thermostat. Rising heat from that equipment may cause the air conditioning system to over-cool your house.
We offer great warranties for both residential and light commercial projects depending on which brand of equipment you choose. For parts, the warranties that we offer range from 5-10 years on certain brands. For compressors, we offer 5-year, 10-year, and lifetime warranties on certain brands.
