Why should you consider a new central A/C system? The answer is simple: New cooling systems have the power to save you energy and money! According to the U.S. Department of Energy, today's central air conditioners use 30% to 50% less energy to produce the same amount of cooling as air conditioners made in the mid 1970s. Even if your air conditioner is only 10 years old, you may save 20% to 40% of your cooling energy costs by replacing it with a newer, more efficient model.
New A/Cs are also more environmentally-friendly. As of 2010, all air conditioners are required to have eco-friendly R410A ("Puron") coolant and all R-22 ("Freon") coolant, believed to be linked to global warming, has been phased out of production.
Brands We Carry
Heil's QuietComfort DXT+ Two-Stage Air Conditioner offers SEER ratings of 16 to 18 that deliver high-quality cooling with outstanding energy efficiency. The two-stage scroll compressor operates most of the time at the quieter, lower stage, changing over to the higher stage at higher outdoor temperatures to produce more cool air. A deluxe sound blanket also reduces compressor sound levels. The painted, galvanized steel cabinet features a powder-coat, baked-on finish and a coated inlet grille with narrower spacing to provide maximum protection as it allows for proper airflow and easy coil cleaning.

Q: Do I need a new central air conditioning system?
A: You might! Look for these three warning signs:
- It isn't producing cool air, even after the filter and coils have been cleaned.
- It's producing loud noises, especially a squealing or grinding sound.
- There are pools of water forming outside near the base, which could be a sign of a broken drain tube or condensation pump.
Q: What about air conditioning a room (or a whole home) without ducts?
A: Ductless mini-split air conditioning systems are gaining popularity, especially in homes without ductwork, retrofits and home additions, and for installations in compact spaces. These slim, compact systems can be installed high up on a wall or attached to the ceiling, and they look nothing like typical air conditioners.
