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.
