Attic Central Air Conditioning Systems
are located in the attic of the home, it circulates cooled air through insulated supply ducts. Return ducts draw hot air back from the house, this is very efficient since cold air coming supplied from the ceiling naturally drops via gravity. (Cold air is more dense than warm air).
Add-On Air Conditioning Systems
This is a system that is added on to a ducted heating system (in ceiling or under floor) that provides both air conditioning and gas heating through the same ducts and outlets. The Air Conditioning is typically a zoned system – to cool either living areas (day) or bedrooms (night). The heating can operate either half the house or the whole house at once.
Advantages of Refriderated Split Systems
- very quiet operation
- can reduce the temperature in the home to a significantly lower temperature than Evaporative Cooling
- when sized properly a Refrigerated Air Conditioner will operate effectively regardless of the outside weather – (extremely hot or humid days).
Disadvantages of Split Systems:
- Refrigerated Split Systems are more expensive to operate than Evaporative Cooling Systems
- they are often only able operate in part of a house – not the entire house.
What you need to know about AC efficiency ratings:
- Air conditioners are rated by BTU’s (British Thermal Units) and tons
- EER (Energy Efficient Ratio) or SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) are usually posted on an Energy Guide Label which must be attached to all new air conditioners
- New air conditioners with higher EERs or SEERs typically have higher price tags but save you money in the long run
- Replacing your existing system that is over 15 years old can save you as much as 55% on your electric bills!
These are air conditioning systems that provide cooling to one or more rooms. They incorporate the use of a condenser unit that is placed outside the home, with refrigerant and electrical lines that go through the exterior wall to connect to one or more compact, wall-mounted cooling units (zones) inside the home.
A ductless air conditioner, also called a mini-split system, has two major components: a unit mounted on an inside wall that delivers cool air to the room and a unit mounted on the outside of the house. A pair or refrigerant lines run between the two, one delivering electricity, the other taking away condensate (water).
There are a number of benefits users get with a ductless system. These include easy installation, easy maintenance, quiet operation, heating, simple control, and attractive and efficient design.
An easy installation for your contractor means less mess, or disruption, for your home or downtime for your business. Ductless systems are easy to maintain. Many indoor units have washable filters and require only periodical cleaning. Outdoor units are designed for easy access for your contractor for those routine maintenance calls.
Ductless systems provide additional heating as well so you can live and work comfortably year-round. And ductless systems are easy to operate. Many provide system control features with a hand-head wireless controller or wall thermostat that puts you in direct control of your comfort.
How is Ductless different than central air-conditioning?
The amount of cold air entering the room can be controlled by a thermostat or it can be regulated by an infra-red remote control, like a TV remote. One room or one area of a building can maintain a different temperature from another room or area in the same building.
In a central air-conditioning system, refrigerant is pumped from the outdoor condenser coil indoors to a single indoor coil from which cooled air is distributed to each room through a system of ducts. In many houses and businesses, the amount of cold air in one room cannot be regulated without changing the temperature of every room in the building.

deliver comfortable conditioned air throughout your home. It works with an air conditioner to circulate cool air in the summer. Air handlers usually connect to ductwork that distributes the conditioned air through the building/home. Small air handlers, for local use, are called termimal units, and may only include an air filter, coil, and blower. A larger air handler that conditions 100% outside air, and no recirculated air, is known as a makeup air unit (MAU). An air handler designed for outdoor use, typically on roofs, is known as a packaged unit (PU) or rooftop unit (RTU).
are located outside the home, it offers a lower level of indoor noise than a free-standing air conditionng unit. Condensing units are familiar temperature-control devices in your air conditioner unit. They move energy in the form of heat by compressing a gas known as a “refrigerant” then pumping it through a system of coils and using the air around the coils to heat and cool spaces. Electronic controls, fans, pumps and coils manage the condenser’s work.
Rooftop Heating/Cooling Units
heat and cool more than half of America’s small commercial buildings from schools and retail stores to hospitals, restaurants and office buildings. The unit consists of heat exchangers for heating and an air conditioning system for cooling. They are installed on rooftops most notably because of the large amount of space on the roof; it is well out of the way and doesn’t cause any unattractive obstructions to the building. Also available for heating only or cooling only as well as heat pump models. These units have many different installation design capabilities including our favorite, the economizer, which allows free cooling while bringing in fresh air.
are similar to pumps, they both increase the pressure on fluid and both can transport the fluid through a pipe. As gases are compressible, the compressor also reduces the volume of a gas.
We repair and install all makes and models of air conditioning systems and condensing units. In addition, we carry a full line of replacement parts to provide our customers with emergency repair service.
