When considering a new air conditioner and furnace for your home or business, you can choose between central air conditioning or ductless. The factors that you should consider in your final decision include installation costs, long-term costs of repairs, rebates, and efficiency (energy costs).
Each type of system has its own advantages and disadvantages, but the specifics of your situation will go a long way in determining what system is right for your home/business. Before making a decision, it is best to sit with a licensed and highly-experienced comfort advisor to review the options.
Duct systems have both outdoor and indoor components that are connected to one another by system of ducts. The cool air is circulated throughout your home through ducts by an air handler. Through zoning the duct system can be quite energy efficient by enabling the creation of different climates in different parts of your home / office by setting different temperatures for each space.
Ductless systems are ideal when ductwork is very-costly or impossible to install. Instead of relying on ductwork, the indoor units are mounted on the wall or in the ceiling. The efficiency of a ductless system is based on its delivery of warm or cool air directly into rooms of your home or business, instead of through routing through ducts. A central ac system is controlled through a mounted thermostat, while ductless systems are controlled by its operating zone. Ductless units are commonly used in new construction, additions, and multi-family housing.

I knew my gas boiler would eventually fail us. I promptly called AMHAC in the morning and they had someone over by noon. The tech diagnosed the problem in 15 minutes and placed an order for a new water pump. Parts came the next day and I’m waiting to have them installed. Very reliable on-time service at a reasonable price. I highly recommend them and will use them in the future.
As a Residential Contractor I've been using AMHAC for all my HVAC needs ..for over 20 years now.. They do all my installations . Working Closely with Mohan Persuad to design and install, we have done over 100 new and added systems in lower and mid Westchester. Their service department is prompt and their technicians are professional and personable. Also , their parts department has been helpful in telling me what fittings and sizes for small exhaust installations my crew can handle. I couldn't be happier and I am comfortable recommending them .
I have a service contract with AMHAC and called for service Tuesday night. Janet (who is amazing) in their client service department had Alvaro here before 12 noon the next day. He was courteous, patient and got to the root of the problem quickly and repaired the problem. He is a great technician and has a great way about him. I would recommend AMHAC and Alvaro to anyone who has a simple and/or complex heating or cooling system. A+ service is all they know.
I am very happy with the service I received from AMHAC. All the people I dealt with on the phone and in person were very professional and they were able to fix our heating issue in less than a week and at a reasonable rate. They were super responsive especially compared other places I have called in the past were I would not get a call back etc. I would definitely use them again in the future.
Just to paint a picture of how responsive they were, our heating system started blowing out cold air this past Wednesday night and I called them the following Thursday morning and they were able to get someone to look and fix the issue that same day. However, on Sunday, cold air started coming out of the vents again and I gave them a call and even though it was their off day, they were able to get someone out to us and determine what the main issue was and they were able to install the part needed by Tuesday.
Great experience with AMHAC! Easy process throughout from scheduling an appointment to keeping me posted on the arrival of the technician. Corrected the problem in very short order. A great value & a great responsive company.
Called the company this summer for A/C maintenance and they were on time and very professional. They answered all my questions and are very friendly. I signed up with the silver plan for my heating system and will be upgrading some parts. Customer service is great and very friendly. Highly recommended company!!!!!
I have been using AMHAC for both my AC and heating units. They are prompt, courteous and reliable. AMHAC easily makes appointments that accommodate my schedule. The servicemen are polite and explain what work has to be done. I recommend AMHAC for all AC and heating needs.
After a few years of using a larger competing company (they make soup better than they do AC/Heat) with very disappointing result in both quality of work, reliability and customer service we contacted AMHAC for a new installation of central AC. From our initial contact to finished installation AMHAC has been very responsive, Client oriented, Courteous and leaving us feeling like we actually matter as customers. All AMHAC staff we have been in contact with has been knowledgeable and helpful and after the Install of our new AC we have also signed a maintenance contract for our heating system and when it is time to upgrade our heating system I will for sure use AMHAC. Thank you to Mohan and everyone else in AMHAC. Very happy customer.
Alvaro from AMHAC came to perform maintenance on my furnaces. He was right on time (at the beginning of the window) and was able to answer my many questions. He completed the maintenance efficiently and gave me advice on my system. I had never used AMHAC before but will definitely continue to use them for my cooling and heating needs in the future.
After waiting a week and a half for a service call in the hottest part of the summer, another company told us they could not repair our a/c system, and tried to sell us on a new system. To get a second quote, my friend told me to call AMHAC. She said she thinks AMHAC is very responsive and reasonably priced. Well, I called and they sent over a repairman, Alvaro, within a few hours. Alvaro was amazing! I was ready for him to confirm what the other company had told us, but instead, he patiently checked out our system and explained each step he was taking. He ended up replacing the motor and a few other things that I didn't understand and he had our upstairs a/c back up and running in a few hours!!!! And for a fraction of the price of a new system! I am in awe of AMHAC. Thank you, AMHAC, for making our home comfortable again. The nicest, most responsive, amazing service!!!!
Very professional, responsive, and effective. I used AMHAC during an emergency when my year-old A/C stopped working after a storm. They came same day and had it up and running within an hour. I now use them for annual maintenance.
AMHAC responded to our needs immediately. Joe, the technician sent to my home was on time, kind, very patient and reviewed the issue with me. I am extremely happy with their service and highly recommend them.
Our very old upstairs unit broke in the middle of a heat wave. Mohan came out the day we called, told us what replacement parts the system needed and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We know how difficult it has been to get parts especially during Covid. Mohan went back to his warehouse to locate what was needed and then worked with our busy schedule and found a time for his team to come back. Arturo, Hector and Donato were professional and did a wonderful job with the instalation. Thank you again!
My upstairs AC suddenly stopped working during a heat wave and AMHAC was able to send a technician within hours. The technician was professional and friendly (and wore a mask and booties), and was able to fix the issue. I recommend AMHAC for routine maintenance or to solve issues.
When I called for service for my AC, I got an immediate appointment for the same day. The AMHAC employees were prompt, courteous and efficient and corrected the problem. I am very satisfied with their work and will continue to use AMHAC.
