Top-Rated AC Installation & Replacement

If you’re ready to upgrade your AC, turn to Lakes. With upfront pricing and easy financing options, we make it simple to replace your old air conditioner with a brand-new unit.

It might be time to replace your air conditioning if:

  • Your AC doesn’t blow cold air consistently
  • You hear loud or strange noises during operation
  • Your unit is more than 15 years old
  • You’ve had frequent or costly repairs
  • Your energy bills have risen for no clear reason

At Lakes, our knowledgeable technicians will always recommend the best cooling solutions for your home and budget. We install cooling equipment from top brands like Armstrong Air, Lennox, and Trane.

We install central AC, as well as energy-efficient ductless AC. Our team will happily explain the pros and cons of each option and help you decide which one makes the most sense for you.

Single-Stage vs. Two-Stage Air Conditioners

Generally speaking, there are two types of air conditioning systems:

  • Single-Stage: A single-stage air conditioner is the most basic and standard type of air conditioner. The term “single-stage” refers to the operating level of the unit. A single-stage unit only has one operating level, meaning when the unit is running, it’s always running at 100% capacity, regardless of the amount of cooling that the space needs at that time. Single-stage units can be the most affordable options upfront but are typically less efficient, resulting in higher utility expenses.
  • Two-Stage: Two-stage air conditioners can be much more efficient than single-stage units. The term “two-stage” refers to the operating levels of the unit. Unlike a single-stage unit, a two-stage unit can run the air conditioner’s compressor at two different levels. On mild days, the unit will operate at about half capacity, which will be more efficient. This allows the air conditioner to only use the exact power needed to cool the home or maintain the thermostat’s set point.

To get the most efficiency and indoor air comfort, we recommend combining a two-stage air conditioning unit with a modulating furnace. Each of these units provides the most control for home air temperature year-round, and combining these two units also provides the ultimate utility expense savings over the lifetime of each.

Ductless mini-splits are another option for cooling your home. They’re ideal for cooling smaller homes or specific rooms. These units are extremely energy-efficient and give you greater control over your air conditioning from room to room.

Trusted AC Repair

If your air conditioner is on the fritz, don’t put off getting the AC repairs you need. Prolonging issues with your unit can make them worse and lead to bigger and more expensive problems.

Lakes can repair common AC issues like:

  • High or low refrigerant levels
  • Clogged filters
  • Icy condenser coils
  • Short-cycling
  • Not powering on or off
  • Leaks

We offer 24/7 emergency AC repairs if your system stops working after hours. Call us to get a FREE service call estimate in Barberton or Canton, OH.

Preventative Air Conditioning Maintenance

Staying on top of AC maintenance is the key to maximizing the efficiency of your air conditioning system. We recommend scheduling maintenance annually in the spring to ensure that your AC is ready for summer. Maintenance helps your AC run more efficiently, and it can also save you money on repairs and replacements.

From filter replacements to checking refrigerant levels, we’ll keep your AC running smoothly season after season. If we catch any issues, we can handle the necessary repairs.
