Cogeneration is also known as Combined Heat and Power, an innovative kind of HVAC system that generates both heat and electricity from a single source. One of the most significant developments in modern HVAC, cogeneration is set to take the California market by storm. Its leading experts in the Fresno area are Valley Air Mechanical, a special division of Valley Air Conditioning and Repair.
We installed our first cogeneration system in 1983, and we immediately noted the increased efficiency and reduction in power and water bills it delivered for the customer. We never looked back: from that point on, we were determined to be Fresno’s leading supply, service and installation company for unconventional HVAC systems. A crew with over 60 years’ combined experience in the field coalesced into today’s Valley Air Mechanical, unrivaled in the Valley for workmanship and expertise.
