Your Air Conditioning Options

We offer a variety of air conditioning systems at our company to keep you cool throughout the summer. We’ve listed the best options below.

Central Air Conditioning

If you have an air conditioner in your home this is probably the system you have. Central air conditioners rely on the ductwork you have throughout your home to distribute cool air to all your rooms. Central air conditioners work on a split system, meaning that there are two units: an outdoor unit and an indoor unit that both work together to cool your home.

Ductless Air Conditioning Systems

Ductless air conditioning systems use ductless mini splits to help you control the temperature of each of your rooms autonomously. Ductless systems use air handlers so they don’t have to rely on a network of ducts to cool your home. They’re easily mountable on your wall and are a great option if you like the idea of zone-controlled cooling but don’t want to go through the expensive, drawn-out process of retrofitting a zone controlled cooling system in your home.

Evaporative Coolers

If you’re looking for an air conditioning system that can really combat the arid nature of our dry climate, you can contact our team. Evaporative coolers are also commonly referred to as swamp coolers. They’re an alternative indoor cooling system that lowers the temperature of your indoor air through the evaporation of water. A fan draws into the cooler and then this air passes over water-saturated pads to lose heat and warm air. The cooled air is then sent throughout your home and the warm air is expelled.

Heat Pumps

A heat pump is a climate control system that’s constructed just like an air conditioner. What separates this climate control system from an air conditioner is the ability for the heat pump to reverse the direction that the refrigerant flows through it. This allows you to heat and cool your home with a single system. Heat pumps are great because they’re eco-friendly, cost-effective, and flexible. If you’re interested in one of these systems then make sure you come to our team.
