Kieth Hilligoss and Cathy Burdge of Air Solutions Heating & Cooling reflect the company-wide positive attitude with their friendly smiles.
Kieth Hilligoss Jr. founded Air Solutions Heating & Cooling in 1997. Air Solutions is a demand-service company specializing in air conditioning, heating, heat pumps, refrigeration, geothermal, radiant, chillers, boilers and ductwork. They service the entire Tulsa metropolitan area, and will be opening a second office in Broken Arrow in the near future. Air Solutions can help you prepare for erratic Oklahoma weather – both in the current winter climate and the approaching warmer months.
“This is such a rewarding profession,” says Hilligoss. “When people call us, most are experiencing a major emergency and need our help immediately to restore heating or cooling back to their home or office.”
Air Solutions serves residential and commercial customers, installing comfort systems that perfectly match personal requirements. Their technicians are NATE certified (North American Technician Excellence) and are factory trained to provide both new installations and emergency service. Air Solutions is an authorized dealer for Carrier and Trane products, and they repair all makes and models.
Hilligoss says that the federal energy credit introduced in 2007 is being reactivated in 2009 and will assure a $500 tax credit to homeowners who install a qualified heating and air system. There will also be up to $2,000 in tax credits extended for ground-source geothermal heating and air conditioning systems. (These systems are ground source heat pumps that use energy from the earth and operate based on the stability of underground temperatures.) Air Solutions will be happy to discuss product availability, cost and the period in which your initial investment is returned by the appreciation in energy savings.
Air Solutions offers an energy audit package that provides an evaluation of your overall heating and cooling equipment, duct leakage, return-air ducts and more. It is a value-packed offering that identifies problem areas in your home or business that need attention in order to become more energy efficient.
Another Air Solutions offering is their Safety & Efficiency Club. Membership entitles customers to a spring and fall system checkup that includes coil cleaning, servicing blowers, thermostat inspection, an energy audit, and new filters. Heating and cooling systems need periodic maintenance just like cars and with twice-yearly tune-ups, you could uncover a potential problem that will give you major headaches down the road. This program also gives members a discount on parts and, if a problem is found, a service call cost reduction. It is an economical package and a great peace-of-mind incentive as you head into Oklahoma’s hot summers and cold winters.
When it comes to family, we all want a dependable air conditioning and heating system that provides both value and comfort. With such a wide variety of products available from Air Solutions, one of their experts can customize a solution that’s just right for you and your family.
It’s no secret that heating and air conditioning systems are the biggest users of energy in our homes – up to 75 percent of each month’s utility bill. “The new high-efficiency heating and cooling systems are capable of saving up to 50 percent in operating costs over a 15-year-old furnace. Most furnaces built prior to 1985 have efficiencies of 65 percent or less,” says Hilligoss. “Many of today’s modern furnaces are rated at up to 96.6 percent efficient, and modern air conditioners are also much more energy efficient than their predecessors.”
