AC Repair - With our certified technicans we are able to diagnosis and repair all makes and models. We try to save you money by first repairing your AC whenever possible. When you call BMS Heating and Cooling you can trust your air conditioning repair will be done correctly. 

Air Conditioning Maintenance - You need to remember to change your filter on a regular basis. Changing your filter will also save you money on your electrical bill. It's also important to have your unit cleaned to increase the longevity of your unit and keep it running efficiently.  

Air Conditioners When looking for a new AC unit you want to choose an Energy Star qualified unit.  ENERGY STAR certified central air conditioners have higher seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) and energy efficiency ratio (EER) ratings and use 8 percent less energy than conventional new models. 

What should I look for when buying a central air conditioner?

If you’ve decided that you need to purchase a new central air conditioning system, learn how to hire a contractor and get an ENERGY STAR Quality Installation.

Remember, even though these products can be more expensive to purchase up front, the cost difference will be paid back over time through lower energy bills.

You can get better heating and cooling performance at home with ENERGY STAR home sealing (insulation and air sealing) and duct sealing.

Consider regular maintenance of your heating and cooling system to prevent future problems and unwanted costs.

EPA offers additional suggestions for improving the performance of your cooling system as well as general home improvement advice.

Finding Certified Equipment

The Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) and the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) have developed an online database(link is external) which identifies high efficiency equipment that has been tested to ARI 210/240 and verified by AHRI. In addition, the online directory identifies ENERGY STAR certified Central Air Conditioner and Air-Source Heat Pumps.



Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to common furnace and air conditioner installation and replacement questions

What is the average life expectancy of an Air Conditioner

 Most systems have a lifetime of 10 to 20 years

.As your equipment gets older, its efficiency can

decrease dramatically. You may notice that it 

gets noisier and needs repairs more often.

When a unit begins to show its age, you have


choices, overhaul the system or replace it

Because heating and air conditioning


improve over time, a unit designed with newer,

more energy-efficient equipment makes sense,

especially if your system is 7 or more years old

. Our authorized air conditioning and heating

contractors can provide a FREE in-home

estimate on the cost of a new system as wel

l as a payback schedule that will show you how

much money your newer, more efficient system

will save you in utility bills.

Try our HVAC Savings Calculator to see how

much you can save with a higher efficiency unit.


Will a bigger HVAC unit perform better?

No, you don't want your air conditioning

unit to be too large. Air conditioners control

the comfort level in your home by cooling the

air and by removing humidity. An oversized air

conditioner can cool your home faster, but it

will use more energy and will not remove

humidity adequately. In addition, your existing

ductwork may not be able to support the

airflow of a larger system.


A unit that is too big for your home will have

short run cycles. It can take only a short time

to cool the air, but the unit shuts off before

enough air blows across the indoor coil where

moisture condenses into water and drains from

your system. Too much moisture left in the air

can lead to mold and mildew problems. These

short run cycles also mean your system starts

and stops more often, which uses more energy

and causes a lot of wear and tear. An air

conditioner operates more efficiently

during long run cycles.


The same holds true with heating systems.

An oversized furnace can warm the house

quicker, but it uses more fuel and causes

greater temperature swings in the home.

How can I reduce my energy costs?


Here are some ideas to reduce your energy

costs: upgrade to a high-efficiency air

conditioning or heating system, install

ceiling fans, schedule annual maintenance

check ups, don't block vents in well-used

rooms, close vents in unused rooms,

and install a programmable thermostat.

Can I just replace the outdoor unit on an older air conditioning system to save money?

While it may cost less initially to replace the

outdoor unit on an older system, over time

utility expenses will add up and may even

cost you more. Replacing only the outdoo

r unit will lower the efficiency of the unit.

Even worse, your system may fail sooner

than normal and most manufacturers'

warranties will be voided. You should

always replace the indoor cooling coil

with the outdoor HVAC unit.

Do I need to have my ductwork replaced?

Industry experts estimate that as many as

70% of all homes with central air have poorly

installed ductwork. Ducts that are not properly

sealed or insulated fail to get the hot or cool

air where you want it efficiently, therefore

costing you money. Before you invest in

a new system,  your ducts are inspected

and if needed include specific


 in our proposal to you. This can normally be

done for FREE as part of your in-home


. Don’t spend the money on a new, super-

efficient system unless you are sure those

efficiency gains won't be lost by poor ductwork.
