Bel-Air, Albuquerque is Close to I-40, North of UNM

The Bel-Air neighborhood in Albuquerque is certainly not as famous as the Bel-Air neighborhood of Los Angeles. But, this is a bustling part of Albuquerque and a valuable part of the community. Most of the neighborhood is residential, but there are a number of helpful businesses around too. Here are some of the highlights of the neighborhood.

Best Shoe Stores in Albuquerque

If you’re looking for a good pair of work boots, there is a Red Wing Shoes in Bel-Air. Red Wing is a renowned brand of shoes, particularly men’s workboots. But while they’re known for their safety footwear, they also have lifestyle shoes for both men and women. Most Red Wing shoes are leather and while that does increase the price, they last for a long time. And, Red Wing sells care kits and the Bel-Air location provides complimentary boot check-ups, cleaning and conditioning, and replacement laces so you’re sure to get a long life out of your shoes.

Best Restaurants in Bel-Air, Albuquerque

There are a few fast-food restaurants in Bel-Air. You can get your burger fix at Whataburger, a crunchwrap supreme at Taco Bell, or go with the New Mexico tradition of Mac’s Steak in the Rough. Mac’s has been a staple of Albuquerque for over 70 years. They’re known for their steak fingers—battered and fried steak. They also have chicken fingers, burgers, and award-winning taquitas. One Google reviewer, Albert G., shared, 

“Pretty rad place I must say. Get the rough dinner combo and you’ll be in for a treat. Also try to dip these little fingers steak strips in the salsa. You gotta ask for it though!”

How will I know if it’s cost-effective to switch to AC from my swamp cooler?

Unlike some of our competitors, we don’t have salespeople come to your home or business to do an estimate. We send our trained technicians (the same people who will actually do the install) who know exactly what to look for when it comes to duct size, the layout of the home or business, current electric panel, and cost per square foot so we can determine the right move for you.

Why choose Bosque Heating and Cooling to do your Albuquerque air conditioning install?

We’ve been working in the region for 55 years and we care about finding innovative solutions for each customer. We know what works in Rio Rancho doesn’t necessarily work in Taylor Ranch. And what works in Taylor Ranch might not work in Nob Hill. We know and care about this community and we care about finding you the most cost-effective solution for your situation.

If your air conditioner is on its last leg or you want a swamp cooler conversion to an AC unit, call Bosque Heating, Cooling & Plumbing. Our highly trained technicians will help you figure out what you need, and expertly install a new unit as soon as possible.
