Unfortunately there comes a time when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. When that time comes, our knowledgeable team can help you choose a suitable type of air conditioner and then expertly install it for you. Our installing team is efficient, courteous, and knowledgeable, so you’ll have a successful installation with a quick turnaround.

We offer annual maintenance programs so our technicians can inspect, check, and clean your system on a regular schedule. This type of maintenance has proven to extend the life of equipment, reduce unexpected breakdowns, and reduce energy costs in the long run. All these positives result in money savings for you over the lifetime of your equipment.

Air Conditioning Repair

During the lifetime of that same equipment, there may come a time when something does require a repair. If that occurs, our certified professionals are available 24 hours a day/7 days a week for your needs. When your air conditioner breaks down in the middle of a Nevada hot spell, we have the capability and know-how to get it up and running again when you need it––and without breaking the bank. Our repair technicians are continually participating in training to remain educated on the latest and greatest technology and repair techniques. This means they can handle any make and model you have with the utmost knowledge and experience.

Cool Choices

No two homes are alike, nor any two homeowners. That’s why we offer different options for cooling your home. Sometimes even a combination of a couple options work best for some. But whatever works best for you, working with our expert team will give you the reassurance to know you’ll receive the best––the best system and the best technicians, all for cost-effective pricing. Be sure to talk with someone on our team to see what might work best in your situation. Here are the top cooling choices our team typically works with:

Central Air Conditioning

This is the most popular air-conditioning system we install, maintain, and repair. It utilizes a duct system to distribute the cooled air throughout the home. There are two main components involved––a condenser (typically located outside) and an evaporator coil (typically located inside). The system works by extracting the heat from the inside air and relocating it elsewhere, usually outside, leaving only cool air to distribute. (Keep in mind this system uses a refrigerant, and by the year 2020 here in the U.S., the government is phasing out the current refrigerant R-22 due to environmental concerns. So anything you purchase at this time needs to use R-410A or an equivalent.)

Ductless Units

These systems are becoming more and more popular as a cooling option. They’re separate units that allow individual zones or rooms to be cooled in a custom manner. Ducts are not utilized in this setup, making them extremely versatile within your home. And since cooling can be customized per room or area, there’s less energy waste thereby lowering your energy costs.

Window Units

These options are typically the least-expensive choice. They can be mounted in either a window or a wall, offering versatility and one-room cooling. This keeps both installation and energy costs to a minimum.

Swamp Coolers

These type of coolers are also known as evaporative coolers. They work differently than the more traditional central air conditioners, in that they add cool air to your home rather than extracting the warm air. Typically, a blower blows over moist pads in the cooler, resulting in evaporating the moisture and cooling the air. There’s no refrigerant used, although swamp coolers do use a duct system to distribute the air throughout your home. This option tends to be less expensive than the more traditional central air conditioning and works well here in our hot, dry climate.

No matter what your cooling needs are––design, installation, repair, or maintenance––call us today at 702.363.6222 and talk with one of our A-1 Mechanical & Electric expert team members. We’re happy to help you choose the best and most cost-effective solution for you.

Air Conditioner Installation in Las Vegas, NV 89110

“Julio Chavez is a great worker! I would definitely recommend him to install your A/C unit as well!!!” – Kaleb M.

Air Conditioner Replacement in Henderson, NV 89015

“A-1 replaced 2 AC / Furnace units this past week. The install was performed professionally and we're absolutely satisfied with the entire process. VERY IMPORTANT TO US: We did our research. We got 3 bids. A-1 was right in the middle pricewise. The highest bid was from a group within a warehouse store and was outrageously expensive. The cheapest bid was from someone who would replace the units "outside" of their time at another company. While a few thousand cheaper, the SERVICE AND AFTERCARE was a concern. If this installer was on vacation or even sick and the unit had a problem – WE could be in for a problem…waiting for our unit to be serviced for days or possibly longer. No thank you. A-1 is a team. Professional. If there is a problem, there is a team of workers who can come – not a solo worker on vacation hundreds of miles away. After seeing the excellent work performed from the A-1 crew, there becomes a trust. I feel our AC needs will be in proper hands for many years to come. Confidence in a company is important. Aftercare is important. We felt a band aid approach to our AC future wasn't worth saving a few dollars. Great job A-1.”

Air Conditioner Replacement in Las Vegas, NV 89131

“Being new to NV and Vegas we did not know any A/C contractors. We had great luck with Carrier brand A/C in CA so we checked out both authorized dealers for Carrier in Vegas. Both came in price wise within a few dollars but A—1 offered a full ten-year part and labor warranty, were the other only offered a two-year labor and ten-year part’s warranty. I had Ramon from A-1 come out and I really worked with him, but he is super knowledgeable, professional, and it was fun to work with him. We settled on the premium Carrier Infinity units because I had them in CA. They are not inexpensive, the two 4Tons were in the $40k range installed. But they are very efficient on power and will last with annual maintenance for at least 15+ years. They cool the home great and have a Wi-Fi /App to control the system anytime anywhere you might be.
The A-1 install team were top notch, very polite and took great care to protect floors and walls. George the crew supervisor knows his stuff and makes sure his team does things the way he expects.
Ramon, the advisor that sold the system, was at one time a technician himself and was there the entire day to make sure everything went as he had promised and he himself did the new outside electrical boxes, installed, and programmed the thermostats. Then he taught my wife and I how to work everything.
Being new to NV and Vegas I could not be any happier with my selection of A-1 Mechanical & Electric. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing A/C or electrical work or new systems.”

“I am not a big review writer but the guys from A-1 Mechanical & Electric were first class. Ramon V. and Victor were not only knowledgeable, friendly and very polite but they reality knew how to install my new Carrier A/C and furnace (complete unit). They were on time and left the house as clean as when they started. In this day and age finding quality mechanical people is hard but A-1 M&E is a company that has them. I would highly recommendation to any one needing a new A/C. Five or 10 stars to them all!
