If you can’t rely on your air conditioning – or if you don’t have A/C at all – Kowalski will install, repair, replace, or upgrade it with top-quality products and personal attention.
We deliver air conditioning tailored exactly for you. We make your home a cool refuge that’s safe from heat and humidity damage.
The options for cooling your home are always changing, and the technology is always improving. We constantly evaluate the pros and cons of different A/C solutions so we can match them perfectly to our customers.
If you need to install A/C or replace an aging or worn system, we’re excited to help you. Here’s what you can expect when you work with us:
To determine the A/C solution that will give you the most comfort at the best efficiency, we'll conduct an inspection and make various cooling calculations at your home. We'll examine your current air conditioning system (if you have one), your general HVAC system, and your infrastructure for air flow. We also look at other features and challenges of your home, including its electrical system, insulation, square footage, layout, and outdoor property.
We’ve solved many A/C challenges in all types of Pittsburgh homes, from older ones never built for A/C, to brand new ones that demand ultra-efficient A/C. Discerning homeowners and premier builders choose us.
Advancements in the industry mean that you have a lot of choices regarding your A/C. We help you explore your options. We’re often able to design multiple A/C solutions that could work for you.
We size your new A/C to your home specifically. We build the custom plenums, line sets, ductwork, and transitions for safe and seamless air flow. In A/C replacements that involve rooftop units, we build custom supply and return adaptors as well as complete duct systems.
HVAC deserves the same attention to form and function that an architect uses to design a home. We integrate new A/C so that it works perfectly and blends right into your space. We design an ideal zoning plan, custom fit all the mechanical and electrical connections, and create discreet access points.
We leave your home better than we found it. We cleanly remove your old A/C system, install the new one with minimal disruption, test all components to ensure they're 100% ready to serve you, and leave our work areas spotless.
A/C systems and refrigerants require special handling to protect your home, your health, and the environment. All our engineers and technicians are certified accordingly. We maintain high safety standards and put yours first.
There are some signs it’s time:
A/C systems last about 10 to 20 years. If yours is on the higher end of that, it may not be able to deliver consistent comfort or energy efficiency anymore. When A/C systems get too old, even the most diligent maintenance is a losing battle.
Your energy bills are a clue into the condition of your A/C. If your bills are steadily increasing, your A/C’s efficiency may be declining. If your bills have suddenly jumped, your A/C or one of its components may be in more dire condition.
If cool air isn’t emerging from your vents with any real strength (or if you’re not getting any cool air at all), it may just be a dirty filter – or you might have a faulty compressor, or ductwork that’s incorrectly sized for your system.
If your A/C is starting up and shutting off over and over, your system may be oversized relative to your home, or your refrigerant levels may be off, which creates air pressure imbalances.
Some condensation around your A/C unit is normal, but extreme moisture, pooling water, and mold are signs of a more severe issue such as poor air flow or poor drainage.
If you’re fixing A/C problems or replacing its parts too often, your system may have reached its life expectancy, when more repairs only generate diminishing returns. We never recommend putting good money into old or obsolete equipment.
If your A/C is not performing like you need it to, we can help you discover and fix the problem.
Here’s what we deliver in every A/C repair:
The following signs could mean your A/C needs attention:
If your A/C won’t shut off either automatically or manually, you may have an issue with the thermostat, compressor, air filters, or electrical parts.
The lack of cool air from your A/C - or worse, actual hot air - can mean you’re ready for a new A/C system, but it may mean that you need to clean or replace your air filters, unclog ductwork or replace a faulty part.
If some areas of your home are too cool or too warm while others are comfortable, you may need to repair or upgrade your thermostat, rather than tackle a full A/C repair.
A working A/C system is relatively quiet. Grinding, rattling, banging, or squealing noises indicate a problem with the motor, fan, belt, or other components
A functioning A/C system produces no smell. A burning odor may be an overheating system, which demands immediate repair. A musty odor may be bacterial build-up on the evaporator coil, drain line, drip pan, or other components.
Kowalski is here to make sure you have reliable, responsive A/C when you need it.
Our A/C system maintenance plan includes a once-a-year inspection and tune-up to find and fix wear and tear, clogs, damage from pests or storms, dirt buildup, and other hazards.
