Prompt AC Repair in Reading & Beyond

If your AC unit isn’t working as it should, it’s time to call our team at Essig. Our technicians are certified to fix a variety of units while offering recommendations for proper maintenance. One of the most common problems that homeowners experience with their AC system is when their unit stops blowing cold air. This can be due to several reasons, such as an unresponsive thermostat or a clogged air filter. Our team can run a diagnostic and locate whatever may be causing the problem.

Finding the Right AC Unit For Your Home

Your AC unit works hard in cooling your home and a day will come when the system needs to be replaced. At Essig, our team is certified to install new AC units for your home. We will assist you in finding an AC unit that meets the needs of your home while taking into consideration your budget. We take pride in offering high-quality products at competitive prices.

We offer a variety of AC unit types for your convenience, including:

  • Central air conditioning
  • Heat pumps
  • Ductless mini-split

Central AC is a common choice for larger homes or buildings. It uses a network of ducts to distribute cool air throughout the space, providing consistent temperatures and humidity control. Installation of central AC can be complex, requiring ductwork and professional installation. However, with proper care, it can last for decades.

Ductless AC Mini-Split systems include an outdoor unit connected to one or more indoor air-handling units. Ductless systems provide zoned cooling, allowing for individual temperature control in different rooms. They are energy-efficient, require no ductwork, and offer easy installation.

Heat Pumps are highly efficient HVAC systems that provide both heating and cooling to your home. They work by transferring heat from one area to another, providing year-round comfort. During the warm summer months, heat pumps provide cool air to your home. During the winter, they reverse their operation to keep your home warm.

When considering which cooling system is right for you, take into consideration factors such as the size of your home, budget, and desired level of control. Consult with an HVAC professional from Essig to help you make an informed decision. Whatever you choose to go with, Essig will ensure your home stays cool and comfortable all summer long.
