CroppMetcalfe’s 5-Star HVAC Technicians have experience working with a variety of cooling systems. Here are some of the most common air conditioning options available to homeowners today:
Central Air Conditioning
Many households depend on a whole home cooling system, also known as central air conditioning, to provide cool air all summer long. These systems are composed of several parts, both internal and external to your home, so it’s important for homeowners to have their central air conditioning inspected before each cooling season to prevent breakdowns in the middle of the summer heat.
A duct-free split is a stand-alone system that can offer homeowners all the comfort of a central air system at the fraction of the cost. Aside from their enhanced efficiency, they can also be much quieter than traditional whole home cooling systems.

Window Air Conditioners
Today's window units use much less energy than older models used to, providing many homeowners with an efficient cooling alternative to a central air system. Modern window A/C units can cool rooms of all different sizes and include features like programmable thermostats and energy-saver mode.
Portable Air Conditioners
Portable air conditioners are free-standing cooling systems that pull in surrounding air, remove the heat and moisture, and return the chilled air into the room. These models can conveniently move between rooms so you’re only cooling the rooms that need it most.
