Griffith Air Conditioning Services
Cooling Pros Serving the Northwest Indiana-South Chicagoland Area
Summers in Indiana are humid and hot. At the height of the season, you need your air conditioning system to work. When it doesn’t, your home becomes muggy and uncomfortable. Since 1951, Meyer’s has been helping residents in Griffith, Gary, Hammond, and the surrounding areas in Northwest Indiana with reliable AC services. From small repairs to helping you select a new, upgraded air conditioning unit, we have the knowledge and experience needed to handle any job.
Understanding Air Conditioners
All air conditioners use the same basic technology to cool the indoor air. The refrigeration cycle begins when low-pressure refrigerant enters the compressor and leaves as a high-pressure gas. The gas flows into the condensing coil where the action of the fan dissipates heat and transforms the refrigerant into a high-pressure liquid. The indoor blower pulls warmer indoor air across the evaporator coil, and the refrigerant absorbs the heat energy. The resulting cooler air is then pushed back into the living air through the supply duct.
Air conditioning equipment is available in three primary configurations including:
- Split Systems – A split system air conditioner has a separate outdoor condensing unit and an indoor furnace or air handler. Copper refrigerant lines connect the two parts of the system. Since the condensing fan and compressor motor are outside, split systems are very quiet. Locating the evaporator and air handler indoors provides greater overall efficiency.
- Packaged Units – Primarily installed on rooftops for light commercial and residential applications, packaged units combine the evaporator coil, blower, condensing coil, and the compressor in a single unit. Packaged units are ideal for installation sites with limited space.
- Heat Pumps – Available in both split system and packaged unit varieties, heat pumps provide both heating and cooling from a single unit. Heat pumps include a device called a reversing valve, which changes the direction of the refrigerant flow when the thermostat mode is reset.
Are You Ready to Upgrade to a New AC?
While many air conditioning problems can be solved by repairing your existing unit, there are some situations where replacing your unit with a newer model is your best choice. Additionally, if your system is older, you may not be getting efficient cooling. Installing a new, energy-efficient unit may save you money in the long run. When this is the case, our Griffith air conditioning experts can help you select the best cooling system for your home. With extensive experience in air conditioning design, we will ensure your new system meets both your needs and your budget. We never pressure customers to buy products they do not need or want.
