HVAC System

As those of you who live here know, the weather in East Texas is…changeable, to put it nicely. While it’s often hot and humid, meaning you’ll mostly need your air conditioner, there are some days you’ll also need a furnace to keep your house warm. 

Keeping the weather in mind, you’ll want the best, strongest HVAC system for your home or business. 

East Texas Refrigeration, a trusted local heating and cooling business out of Tyler, Texas, knows that HVAC can seem confusing at first.

When you’re looking into a new air conditioner, there’s so much to consider: do you want it to just be air conditioning, or would you also like to include heating? Do you want a programmable thermostat? How much will AC system installation cost? Are there ways you can save money? What are the different brands? 

When it comes to the different brands that offer top-of-the-line air conditioners and heating units, two brands stand out above the rest for their state-of-the-art products and all-around excellence. Those two brands are Trane and Daikin. 

So, you’ve decided to install a new heating and cooling unit, but now it’s time to choose. How do you find the right unit for you and your home or business? 

With our experience, we’ll help make it easier: You can’t go wrong with two trusted brands like Trane and Daikin.

Regarding the merits of these companies, both are excellent options for your HVAC needs.
