    History

    At Americool Heating & Cooling, Inc. we believe that having the right people on the job is just as vital as choosing the best equipment. Our Trane Comfort Specialists professionals provide you with top quality equipment, skilled installation and an expert analysis of your comfort needs. Our recommendations will match the physical requirements of your home, and will fit your budget and lifestyle needs.

    But we don't want you to just take our word for it. Before you buy, there is a way for you to independently judge the value of what any heating and cooling contractor offers you. Prices can vary widely in equipment and labor costs, often contingent upon the state of the industry and the particular needs of the contracting firm at any given time. But price and value are two different things entirely, and often show little relationship to one another.

    Developed by the Air Conditioning Contractors of America, one of our industry's primary trade groups, this tool is designed to give you insight into the process of choosing a heating and cooling contractor and evaluating their proposals. The ACCA's attitude is that you should get what you pay for, and we heartily agree. Download the checklist and use it to rate potential contractors and their offerings to determine the best value for you as an informed consumer. We feel confident that once you do this, Americool will stand among the best choices you could make, both now and in the long term.

    BBB

    The Better Business Bureau Member

    The Better Business Bureau (BBB) system in the U.S. extends across the nation; coast-to-coast, and in Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico. Since the founding of the first BBB in 1912, the BBB system has proven that the majority of marketplace problems can be solved fairly through the use of voluntary self-regulation and consumer education.

    NCI

    National Comfort Institute Member

    National Comfort Institute is one of the country's top training and certification organizations. NCI started in 1992 as National Balancing Institute, a training organization aimed at helping heating and air conditioning contractors provide even comfort throughout homes and businesses using a technique called Air Balancing. This technique, previously only available for large commercial and industrial facilities was refined to work in smaller buildings and homes.

    As NCI evolved, the organization widened its scope to include a total system approach to design, installation and service of heating and air conditioning systems. We call this approach, "Performance-Based Contracting." These contractors are different from the average service company because they do more than simply fix or replace equipment. They also focus on maximizing the comfort, safety and energy efficiency of the systems they sell and service.
