Air Conditioning and Cooling
When summertime arrives in Springfield, MO, you deserve a quality cooling system that will keep you comfortable on the hottest of days. If you are ready to replace your old air conditioning unit, consider purchasing an energy-efficient model that is environmentally friendly and can quickly cool your entire home or business.
Is your air conditioner making strange noises or blowing hot air? No need to sweat—our repair experts can quickly diagnose and address the issue so that your system is running quietly and efficiently.
Maintenance plays a vital role in keeping your HVAC equipment operating at peak performance. For your air conditioner, be sure to sign up for a preventative maintenance plan for tune-ups, inspections, and repair calls. Follow the manufacturer guidelines in changing any filters and be sure to keep a two-foot clearance around your outdoor unit. Your HVAC system helps maintain your indoor air quality and humidity levels, so keeping it tuned up pays off in many ways.
Furnaces and Heating
Winters can get brutal here in Springfield, MO. Between the cold winds and blankets of snow, staying comfortable during the winter months means having a reliable heating system that leaves you feeling cozy and able to chill.

A quality furnace will last anywhere from 15 to 30 years, and we can help you choose the right model for your home to get the best value out of your investment.
If your furnace makes a strange noise, or cycles infrequently, give us a call. Our repair experts will quickly respond and address the issue. We fix all makes and models, and we offer 24/7 emergency repair services so we can be there when you need us.
Maintenance is the best way to ensure you get the most comfort out of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system.

Ask about our preventative maintenance agreements to find a plan that fits your budget and needs.
Looking for an efficient way to heat and cool your home in Springfield, MO? Consider replacing your old furnace and air conditioner with a heat pump.
It used to be that heat pumps were only suitable for regions with moderate climates. Technology has changed all that, as high-efficiency heat pumps on the market today are capable of distributing enough warm air to keep you comfortable on the coldest of days.
Heat pumps take the place of your furnace and air conditioner. In the summer, they work just like an air conditioner, removing heat from your home. In the winter they reverse the process, capturing the outdoor heat and transferring it into your home. The ground and outdoor air always contain some heat—even in winter. Unlike a furnace that consumes fuel to generate energy, a heat pump transfers heat instead of producing it. Doing so reduces your electricity use for heat by a significant margin.
Heat pumps can be set up as central units to provide comfort for the entire home, or as a ductless system to focus on a particular room. If you build an addition that has no air ducts, your solution is a heat pump. Heat pumps are easy to maintain. They are energy efficient and help reduce your carbon footprint.
Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
If you find yourself constantly coughing, sneezing, and wheezing the moment you walk in the door of your Springfield, MO, home, you may need to adjust the humidity level. Your indoor air quality depends on it. High humidity makes it difficult to breathe, especially if you have allergies or asthma. Low humidity dries up your nasal passages, leading to a dry cough or the sniffles. Neither scenario is pleasant.
The ideal indoor humidity range is between 40 and 60 percent. You can purchase a relatively inexpensive instrument called a hygrometer to measure the humidity level in your home. When the humidity levels get too high, your home becomes vulnerable to mold and mildew. Low humidity levels, on the other hand, create a natural breeding ground for the flu bug and other viruses.
Our solution is to install either a whole-house humidifier—or a dehumidifier depending on your situation. These systems integrate with your HVAC system to seamlessly adjust the humidity levels in your home or business in Springfield, MO. You enjoy instant comfort and improved indoor air quality.
These systems are relatively easy to maintain and operate. If there ever is an issue with your humidifier or dehumidifier, call us.
Indoor Air Quality
Creating comfort in your Springfield, MO, home or business starts with fresh air—your health depends on it. Around the country, there is a growing movement toward taking our indoor air quality seriously. The US Environmental Protection Agency ranks poor indoor air quality as one of the top five environmental risks to our public health. Fresh air matters.
Inadequate ventilation, clogged air filters, leaky air ducts—these are a few of the main factors leading to poor air quality. Dampness in your home, outdated building materials, cigarette smoke, and household cleaners also contribute toward compromising your air quality.
Maintaining your HVAC system, from changing the filters to cleaning your ductwork, goes a long way toward improving the air quality. Other solutions include:
- A whole-house humidifier to increase the humidity levels in your home. If your indoor air has too much moisture in it, consider a whole-house dehumidifier.
- A whole-house air filtration system integrates with your HVAC equipment to remove dust, dirt, pollen, mold, and bacteria from the air.
- Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs) push out the stale indoor air and replace it with fresh outdoor air.
- UV (ultraviolet) germicidal lights attack biological contaminants inside the home, such as bacteria and viruses, mold spore and mildew, and other contaminants.
While the conventional tank water heater is still the most popular choice for homes and businesses in Springfield, MO, there are other options to consider:
A tankless water heater offers greater energy efficiency and longer service life over a tank water heater. But they have a limited flow rate, meaning you could run out of hot water if several people are using hot water at the same time.
Indirect fired water heaters use energy from your boiler or furnace to heat your water. While it requires a storage tank, an indirect fired water heater is easy to maintain and extremely energy efficient—mainly because they use existing heating sources. On the flip side, both of these options are more expensive to purchase over a tank water heater.
If you go with a tank water heater, consider storage capacity. A family of four needs a water heater with a storage capacity of 50 to 60 gallons. Anything less and you could be taking a lot of cold showers.
If you suspect there is a problem with your water heater, call us.
Zone Control Systems
Whether you live in a spacious home or own a larger building, consider installing a zone control system to maximize your comfort in Springfield, MO.
A zone control system allows you to simultaneously control the temperature in different parts of your home or business. It’s perfect for seldom-used rooms or if you have family members with different room temperature preferences.
How does it work? Our professionals install thermostats around your home or business that control automated dampers installed inside the air ducts of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. By adjusting the thermostats, you open and close the dampers to raise the temperature in one room and lower it in another.
Zone control systems cut your energy use, lower your utility bills and reduce your carbon footprint. They also reduce the stress on your HVAC system because it no longer has to heat or cool your entire home or business. Installing programmable thermostats make this system even more efficient. Our experts can determine the best “zones” in your home and business to produce the most comfort. We install the system—you enjoy the comfort.
