Whole-home summer comfort and savings

Keep your home cool and comfortable with a reliable and efficient central system.

How Is it Efficient?

Today’s high-efficiency air conditioners use 20-40% less energy than they did 10 years ago, and up to 50% less energy than central air conditioners from the mid-1970s.

Beat the heat with a central air conditioner

Make hot summers easier to handle by installing a central air conditioner in your home. Central air conditioners are a perfect addition to your existing gas-furnace heating system. They provide cool air, reduce humidity in your home and help to maintain good indoor air-quality by allowing you to keep your windows closed—a huge benefit if there is a smoke event in your area.
