Air Conditioning Units Available

There are many ways to cool the air. Which one makes the most sense for your home or business?

There are geothermal systems, heat pumps, ductless mini splits and central air conditioning systems (ducted.) You’ll want to research which system makes the most sense for you based on your buildings current setup and your budget. For instance, if you already have forced hot air for your heating systems, it’s easy enough to tap into those same ducts for your air conditioning. While this isn’t the most energy efficient way to cool your home, it may certainly be the most cost effective when it comes to installation.

Cooling Capacity

BTUs is the measurement commonly used to measure the power of a heating or cooling system. The larger the BTU rating, the larger the space it can effectively heat or cool. Having a system that is too small or too big can wear down the system prematurely.
