Ductless Air Conditioning

Ductless mini-split systems combine an outdoor compressor with one or multiple air handling units that mount up high on the wall or into a drop ceiling.

  • Non-invasive installation typically completed in a single afternoon
  • Require little to no maintenance
  • No ductwork necessary
  • Maintains a consistent room temperature
  • Provides heating capability in winter
  • Compact size
  • Extremely energy efficient
  • Quiet operation
  • Each air handler includes a thermostat for dedicated zoned control

Central Air Conditioning

Central air conditioning systems distribute cooled air to the rooms of the home by way of one or more fans, supply ducts and registers. work system. The air circulates throughout the home, gradually becomes warmer and is drawn back to the central air conditioner via return ducts and registers. The advantages of a central air conditioning system include:

  • Taking advantage of existing ductwork makes the unit less expensive to install
  • Virtually invisible from inside the home
  • Requires only annual maintenance
  • Keeps the whole house cool
  • Modern options offer efficient operation
  • Adds value to the property
  • Modern options allow for zoning

The technicians are on time and personable. They have always laid out all of my options for me and have never tried to force me into something I wasn’t sure of – for example purchasing a new system. Even my old broken-down piece of garbage was able to be serviced by them back into functioning. I was able to get an appointment quickly and they were able to work with me to get the service done in a timely fashion.

Twice we needed a split unit air conditioner replaced, and twice these guys were really terrific. I never look for the lowest price, but I have a sense of what is a fair price, and the price they gave me was better than fair. The salesman was terrifically honest, and when I asked him if he would recommend any additional work, he said no. The installers were terrific.

Great service!! I had 2 techs come out on different times both told me the same thing. They did not try to sell me any extra services or a new unit. They both went beyond what I expected. They also educated me on a few things Which i found to be true through my own research. Really glad I found them and their prices are very reasonable.

We service, repair, and install all makes and models
