Choosing the right air conditioner unit, when central HVAC may not an option, involves several factors. To determine what type of air conditioner to buy, consider the following questions:
- What type of window space can I install a unit in?
- Is an in-wall or slide-out unit possible?
- How many BTUs do I need to effectively cool the room?
- Will it need to be portable?
You may also need to factor in the ease of installation and the energy efficiency the AC unit offers.

A window air conditioner can provide the much-needed relief you need when the temperature rises, especially in homes without central air. To ensure you stay cool all summer long it’s important to know how to troubleshoot some common problems with the unit. You may not be able to fix every problem, but at the very least have an understanding of what the problem could be. From that point you can decide whether you need to repair the unit or purchase a new one.

Wow, what a heat wave! We apologize for the inconvenience but due to the overwhelming demand for air conditioners in our area, all air conditioners are now in-store only. Supply is limited, so please go to our store locator page and call your local showroom to check the availability of the A/C unit(s) you need.

Happy Earth Day! Earth Day is a celebration of environmental protection and inspires awareness to our planet’s health every April 22. Did you know that P.C. Richard & Son promotes recycling, energy-saving appliances and green initiatives all year round? Here are a few ways we help protect the environment and some suggestions on great green products for your home.
What We Do
We here at P.C. Richard & Son deal with a lot of plastic, cardboard and Styrofoam with product packaging. We break down all cardboard boxes that hold all orders we receive and separate it from any plastic and Styrofoam that is also included in the packaging. The plastic and Styrofoam is collected and cardboard grouped into bails to be sent to a recycling plant where it is reused and repurposed. Our Deer Park Clearance Center alone sees four to five hundred boxes ever week and a half or so, so that’s tens of thousands of pounds of cardboard, plastic and Styrofoam recycled every year from our 60 locations.
