Air Conditioning

An air conditioning system can really keep your home comfortable during the hottest days of the season. Our HVAC professionals can help you design the perfect system for your lifestyle and budget if you are considering an upgrade or replacement.

On the other hand, if your current system is not quite performing to its normal level of high efficiency or is making odd noises, you need our HVAC experts to diagnose and repair your system. And if it has been a long while since you have had professional maintenance performed on your air conditioner, schedule your appointment now. After an inspection, cleaning, and tune-up, you will notice how much cooler your air conditioner keeps your home.

How Much Money Can a New Air Conditioner Save You?

Our SEER energy savings calculator can help determine how much you could save on your utility bills. Simply enter your current unit's SEER value and compare it to a newer, more efficient system. You can even customize it to better match your home's system for a more accurate calculation.

Heat Pumps

Despite the word heat in its title, a heat pump can operate as either both a heating and cooling system or as a heater or cooler only. When a heat pump works to cool your home, it functions in a highly efficient manner.

Since a heat pump does not create its own heat and instead simply transfers heat from indoors to outdoors and vice versa, no fuel is burned, making it environmentally friendly and very efficient. Our Columbia NW professionals can address whatever heat pump cooling needs you may have—installation, replacement, repairs, or maintenance.

Ductless Systems

A ductless system is technically a heat pump, so it too can function as both heating and cooling or one or the other. When you are looking for a compact and versatile cooling system, a ductless system, or mini split, is a powerhouse of cool.

With its small footprint and lack of ductwork, our HVAC professionals can install this cooling system in most places in your home. Or if your current system is in need of repair or maintenance, give us a call to schedule an appointment.
