We have knowledge and expertise in mini-split systems and high velocity systems that are just what an old vintage home needs to deliver air where it is needed.
We install quality air conditioning and heating systems that are the most important factor for your home. Oversized or undersized units can be problematic. Our trained and certified professional installers will make sure you have the right match for your home.
Heating and Cooling Experts: Our skilled technicians are highly capable and can troubleshoot any problem when it comes to radiant heat, forced air systems, hot water or steam boilers.
Vintage Home Tips: Oversized systems that are not properly matched can cycle on and off more frequently, wear out faster and break down more often which in the long run will cost more to maintain. Make sure your home has enough power to handle your equipment. Some equipment can require a dedicated 230 volt circuit and may require up to 50 amps of power.

If ice covers your coil, or liquid that couldn't have come from another source surrounds the line, your line is likely leaking refrigerant and a professional inspection is warranted.
