The right size system will not only make your home more comfortable, but it will also save you money on your utility bills!
Types of Air Conditioners
There are several types of air conditioning systems, each requiring its own unique installation process. This is a large part of the reason it’s so critical that only a professional attempt such a job, because HVAC technicians are trained to install all types of AC systems.
Among the more common types of home cooling systems are central air conditioners. These systems cool the whole home and are controlled remotely by a thermostat. These are effective and convenient systems are a great option, but because new ductwork may need to be put in, the installation process can be very involved. Our technicians have years of experience installing central AC, so they can get the job done quickly and properly.

Air Conditioner Sizing
Beyond selecting a type of system, you will also need to pick out a unit with the right capacity for the size of the space you need to cool. If you are replacing an existing system, you might think this would be as easy as checking the specifications on the old unit, but that assumeses the old system was properly sized in the first place. Whether this is your first air conditioning system or a replacement, there are myriad factors to consider including room measurements, load calculations, insulation types, typical number of inhabitants and more. All of these affect an air conditioner’s ability to maintain comfortable temperatures. Our professional installers always start out by assessing your home so they can use their expertise to help you review your options.
