For all your commercial air conditioning needs, turn to Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating first. We require a rigorous training program of all our service technicians that includes keeping up to date on all the major brands of commercial air conditioning and air handlers/movers. Our technicians thoroughly understand commercial air conditioning units and take pride in the quality of their work.

Does your business need the air conditioning revamped this year? Perhaps you’ve remodeled, expanding your square footage of used space. Your old AC system won’t likely be able to handle the additional demands for cooling. We can help by evaluating the efficiency of the units you have and offer expert advice that will help you keep your employees and customers comfy even on the hottest days of summer.

Maybe the past few years you’ve had an increase in service calls for your air conditioning. You knew it was going to die on you one day, but have put off replacing it as long as possible. Now is the time to do something about it, and Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating can help. We carry an impressive array of quality commercial AC brands, are competitively priced, and are known for our outstanding service times. We get the job done right the first time, and we do it quickly.

Remember, too, that all AC units should have a couple of Preventative Maintenance check-ups per year. This helps ensure your unit is running as well as possible. Our technicians will give your commercial AC unit a multi-point inspection that will help make sure everyone stays cool even on the hottest days this summer. It’s the smart way to prevent future AC troubles.

Whether your restaurant or business needs a simple repair, a complete overhaul, or a maintenance check-up, you can trust Appalachian Refrigeration to handle the job for you with prompt, courteous and knowledgeable service. We love what we do and it shows!

New Construction or Remodel Job In Marion NC? HVAC Sales Service

The summer season is hot, in more ways than the outside temperature. New construction projects are soaring, and one very important part of new construction or remodeling projects is an adequate ventilation system. Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating is the area’s most reputable company around to handle your commercial or residential HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) project. A lot of companies only offer HAC (Heating and Air Conditioning) services because of the additional training and education required to also specialize in Ventilation. The problem arises when you need more than a simple window-mounted air conditioner. Any time you need ventilation (such as a rooftop-mounted system or air handler) you’ve got to tie into existing or new ductwork. Not every service company can handle that. Appalachian Refrigeration is your answer to that dilemma. Our highly trained staff has ventilation installation training and experience like no one else!

It’s not just about ventilation, though. New, remodel or adding an addition to your home or business requires careful analysis of your year-round indoor temperature requirements. If your business is a restaurant, you’ll likely need two different systems: one to maintain kitchen temperatures, and one for the ambient comfort of your patrons. Medical practices and smaller business offices usually need simpler set-ups. What about your new or remodeled home project? If you’re adding living space in the basement or enclosed garage, the additional draws on your old system aren’t likely to be adequate. The air conditioner could very likely fail, and it always seems to happen on the hottest days!

Don’t get caught by surprise. Give Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating a call today. We’ll be happy to help ensure your new or remodeled project is properly cooled this summer, and comfortably warm come winter. We’re reputable, licensed, and always handle even the most complex ventilation projects with a smile. We love what we do and are happy to help you.

It’s hot outside, no denying that. Summer is here in full swing.

A client of ours recently needed an air conditioning upgrade. Her office was like an oven. Employees were doing more sweating at their desks than actual work. How could they, when they were melting in their seats? The air conditioning was on the blink and desk fans just weren’t cutting it.

Her customers were complaining, and beginning to avoid her business entirely. Talk about trouble at the cash register! She had to do something, and fast. Enter Appalachian Refrigeration.

Our team of experienced technicians was able to assess the problems with her old air conditioning unit and make several recommendations. They shared valuable insight concerning each option, gladly sharing the information so she could make an informed, wise decision. She ended up choosing to have a new system installed, ensuring that her business would have warrantied comfort for years to come.

She chose to have a Coleman air conditioning unit installed. Coleman, the name synonymous with durability and comfort in the camping world, is also the manufacturer of some of the best air conditioning (and heating) equipment in the country. It’s an American-owned company that uses American labor, right here on native soil. Their warranty is one of the best in the industry, too, which is proof that they stand proudly behind their products. So in choosing Coleman, she also chose to support America!

Appalachian Refrigeration was proud to be able to help out a customer in desperate need of air conditioning. Her employees will be more productive, and her clientele know that their comfort is important to her as well.

If your office isn’t adequately cooled by your current air handler/air conditioner, please give Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating a call today. Our knowledgeable staff has the expertise to help you get the problem fixed right the first time. Serving the greater Marion and Asheville, NC area, we’re only a phone call away!

Time for an Air Conditioner in Your Home?

Summer is here. It came stomping into our lives like muddy boots on the kitchen floor, pushing right past spring, making a mark in our lives. Sweltering heat and clammy skin are now the norm. It doesn’t have to be so unbearable! You can enjoy a comfortably cool home this summer with a central air/heat pump from Appalachian Refrigeration.

Remember last summer when you had to get by with fans in the windows to try to draw in air two degrees cooler than your house? Even though the ceiling fans ran continuously on high, they didn’t do anything but put dust on your tables and decorations. And remember those restless nights when you couldn’t sleep for the heat? You went to bed grouchy and got up in the same mood simply because you weren’t comfortable. Chances are you’ve been experiencing the same heat already and we’ve just begun the dog days of summer.

This summer doesn’t have to be a repeat of last year’s discomfort! If you had a new heat pump/air conditioner, you could live in the luxury of a comfortable house temperature. And come winter, that same heat pump will also keep you warm. What’s not to love about this idea?

Give us a call today for a little more information and to see what size heat pump will provide your indoor climate requirements. We serve the greater Marion-Asheville, NC counties, so we have the experience you need in delivering and setting up your new heat pump/air conditioner. A simple phone call could change your life for the better. We’re here to serve you!

At the word “heat,” you might be rolling your eyes. After all, blackberry winter has passed and we’ve stepped straight into summertime. Kids are begging to go swimming, cookouts are being planned, and everyone is looking forward to getting a tan during summer vacations. We’re fully in the swing of air conditioning days.

Most of our customers know that Appalachian Refrigeration has the expertise to handle any commercial or residential refrigeration need, from emergency service calls to commercial refrigeration sales and installation. We’re very proud to announce to you that we have also added heating and air conditioning services. The season of needing heat has passed, but air conditioning is fast becoming king in terms of comfort needs.

If your business has an air conditioning need, give us a call. We’ll be happy to come out to evaluate your existing units and give you honest recommendations. Restaurant air conditioning is our specialty, but we are equally qualified to help out other businesses or residences with air conditioning needs.

Perhaps your restaurant’s air conditioning was merely adequate last year. Now your central units are a year older, therefore a little more prone to fail you. Not only will your staff be uncomfortable, but your customers will begin to complain, or worse, avoid coming in the first place. It only takes one negative experience for people to be turned off forever. Don’t let an inadequate air conditioning system be the cause!

How about your home’s air conditioning? Last year, were there days when it simply couldn’t cool your house satisfactorily? It’s more common than you think, but that’s not the way heat pumps and central air conditioners are supposed to be. They’re supposed to keep you cool. Period. If you dread summer again because you know you’ll still be hot even with the unit running 24-7, then it’s time to give us a call. We’ll come check it out for you, fix it or give you several options for replacements.

We are here to serve the greater Marion, McDowell area and the surrounding counties. Our courteous, experienced staff is there for you! Give us a call today to schedule an appointment to have your air conditioning system inspected. You’ll be glad you did.

Beat the Summertime Heat: Time to Check Your AC Unit

In our area, spring is very quickly replaced by the sweltering heat of summer. Before you’ve even found time to put away your winter wardrobe and ponder the upcoming pool season’s new swimsuit, you’ve already turned on the AC and started avoiding the outdoors after noon.

The question today is this: Is your air conditioning unit in good shape for this season of heat we’re stepping into? If it doesn’t seem to be cooling as well as it should, you’ve likely got a problem that will only get worse as the summer progresses. Here are a two super-easy things you can do to help your air conditioner work at its best:

1. Close all the outside doors and windows. Don’t laugh. It’s just one of those things folks overlook. There’s that one window in the laundry room, bathroom or kid’s room that’s always cracked for ventilation. Well, okay, in the bathroom it’s necessary, but not all the time, alright? The air conditioning unit won’t ever be able to cool the yard, so close those outside doors and windows.
2. Check the filters. Chances are the filters will need to be replaced (some just cleaned, depending on what kind you have) in order for the unit to efficiently pull the air through, to reduce your home’s temperature. If the filters are dirty, the compressor is more likely to fail prematurely. Changing the filters is an easy “do it yourself” preventative maintenance task. If you’re not sure which filter to get, take the old one with you to the store and buy exactly the same kind and size.

If you’ve done these easy checks and the unit still doesn’t seem to be cooling as well as it should, it’s time to call Appalachian Refrigeration. Our service technicians have the experience and education you need to get your air conditioning back up to its best working capacity. We specialize in residential air conditioning (heat pumps, central air), as well as the bigger commercial units in restaurants and other businesses. We’ll respond quickly and not leave you sweating!
