A new, appropriately sized unit will save money on energy bills because it functions more efficiently. Our technicians will consider the specifics of your house and your lifestyle to discover the best fit for you. Once the unit is installed, you will reap immediate benefits.

When it comes to getting a heating unit, it’s important that you take your time going through the process to ensure you make the right decision. There are several options available, and choosing the wrong one can be costly in the long run. That’s why we calculate your home’s ability to retain heat and account for other variables that affect temperature within the home. This allows us to find the unit that will fit your home’s needs perfectly. If you find you’re having trouble deciding, reach out to us for assistance. You’ll be glad you did!


Most folks believe that an air conditioner cools their home by pumping in cold air. Well, that's not quite how it works! Keep in mind: Cold Is The Lack Of Heat.


What's really going on is your air handler/furnace is blowing indoor air across the indoor evaporator coil. Indoor heat is transfered to the freon which is flowing through the indoor evaporator coil. The heat laden freon then flows back out to the outdoor condensing unit, which then dispells the heat to the outside, via the outdoor condenser coil.

Both the indoor evaporator coil and the outdoor condenser coil are very similar in function to the radiator of your car. Heat transfer is taking place. The picture here is an indoor A-coil. This one is uncased and is built directly into the plenum. Indoor coils can also be purchased built into a case, which installs directly to your air handler or furnace. Next time you are near an outdoor condenser, put your hand over the top of the unit. The air blowing out is hot. This is literally the heat from inside which has been transferred, via freon, to the outside.


Air Conditioning Units


Central Air Conditioners

Typical central air conditioners are split systems (which include an air conditioning unit/air handler usually on the outside and an indoor coil frequently installed on the furnace) that circulate cool air through a system of supply and return ducts. Supply ducts and registers carry cooled air from the air conditioner to the home. This cooled air becomes warmer as it circulates through the home; then it flows back to the central air conditioner through return ducts and registers.


• Heat pumps
Operate in the same manner as an air conditioner, but they incorporate a reversing valve to provide both heating and cooling from a single unit. They’re great for keeping you warm; call Quality Air of the Carolinas today for more information!

Once the unit has been installed, it’s designed to last for many years. However, at Quality Air of the Carolinas, we understand that the future is unpredictable and that anything can happen.

Cost, all too often, is the main consideration for a comfort system installation, but the initial installation cost is not the only cost you should consider. This decision can cost you dearly later-on. The following factors should weigh heavily in your decision.


The quality of the installation is very important. The most important day of your new system is the day it is installed.


• If you go with the cheapest bid, you will probably get a bottom quality installation. Especially if there is a wide cost difference between your bids, the lower bids are cutting corners somewhere.


• Be careful of price gouging. Heating and air conditioning companies need to make profit just like any other business!
