Our Philosphy


First, to assure your satisfaction, we start by asking questions. If we don't provide what you need and want, we're not doing our job.

Second, we work with the leader in home heating cooling equipment, York.

Third, we train each employee to see your job through from start to finish, making sure the unit or system performs up to your expectations.

Finally, we provide quick, professional service and complete service plans to keep your systems operating at peak efficiency. It's all part of our tradition of service -- assuring your complete satisfaction.

Professional Affiliations


At Cliff’s we have always believed that we cannot provide quality service without employing quality people.

Our employees are certified by N.A.T.E. (North American Technician Excellence) as Air Conditioning – ACE Service Technicians. Additionally, our technicians attend and complete numerous factory-sponsored training seminars.

As a York Patriot Elite Dealer, Cliff’s is able to provide superior service with the backing of one of the best names in the heating & air conditioning industry.

Recognizing that we are a small business, our membership with N.F.I.B. enables us to voice our opinion on matters that directly affect everyday consumers of our goods and services.

The community is our marketplace; therefore, our membership in the Schererville Chamber of Commerce is a must. Cliff’s has been a member in good standing since we built our facility in Schererville.

History


Cliff’s was founded in 1979 by Clifford Purnell, Sr., as a small service shop that served both the residential and light commercial heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration markets. Over the years, Cliff’s has grown to serve customers in over 30 cities across the Illinois and Northwest Indiana markets.

In 2000, Cliff Sr. welcomed his son, Cliff Jr., into the operation, as a move to guarantee the tradition of superior service established years earlier. Cliff Jr. brought both new energy and fresh ideas into the company.

In 2002, Cliff's constructed a new office/warehouse facility at our current location in Schererville. This expansion allowed us to consolidate our HVAC, waterproofing services, and back-up power generation products under one roof. Additionally, it will allow us to transition into a Premier Home Comfort Services Provider.

Residential HVAC servicing and replacement still comprises over 90% of our business. Our craftsmen are trained and certified by N.A.T.E. and our major suppliers.

We know that we are large enough to provide prompt and efficient service, yet small enough to care about each individual customer. As the leader in residential service, we will not stand for anything less. A wise man once said, “Becoming Number One is easy, maintaining excellence is Leadership.”

With more than 25 years in the heating and cooling business, we are dedicated to providing the best possible total indoor weather solution for you and your family. You can count on us to provide you with a system and solution that fits your family's unique needs. And since we've installed many indoor weather systems in Northwest Indiana and Illinois, we've earned a reputation for doing the job right the first time.

Quality Condenser Coils - The coil is constructed of aluminum microchannel tubing and enhanced aluminum fins for increased efficiency and corrosion protection. Coil Protection - Coils are protected from damage by a polymer mesh applied between the coil face, and a coated steel coil guard.

Protected Compressor - Compressors are internally protected against high pressure and temperature. This is accomplished by the simultaneous operation of high pressure relief valve and a temperature sensor which protects the compressor if undesirable operating conditions occur. A liquid line filter-drier further protects the compressor.

Durable Finish - The cabinet is made of pre-painted steel. The pre-treated flat galvanized steel provides a better paint-to-steel bond, which resists corrosion and rust creep. Special primer formulas and matted champagne finish insure less fading when exposed to sunlight.

Lower Installed Cost - Installation time and costs are reduced by easy power and control wiring connections. The small base dimension means less space is required on the ground or roof.

Top Discharge - The warm air from the top mounted fan is blown away from the structure and any landscaping. This allows compact location on multi-unit applications.

Low Operating Sound Level - The upward air flow carries the normal operating noise away from the living area. The rigid top panel effectively isolates any motor sound. Isolator mounted compressor and the condenser coil muffle the normal fan motor and compressor operating sounds.

Low Maintenance - Long life permanently lubricated motor-bearings need no annual servicing.

Easy Service Access - Fully exposed refrigerant connections and a single panel covering the electrical controls make for easy servicing of the unit.

Secured Service Valves - Secured re-usable service valves are provided on both the liquid and vapor sweat connections for ease of evacuating and charging.

INDOOR AIR QUALITY


York Indoor Air Quality

A study conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency found that indoor air could actually be more polluted than outdoor air. Considering that most individuals spend up to 90 percent of each day indoors--more than half of that time at home--you may be experiencing indoor air pollution without even knowing it.

Today, homes are sealed more tightly to conserve energy. Unfortunately, this seals in mold, pollen, bacteria and other pollutants. And since the U.S. EPA ranks indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health, many homeowners are concerned.

Fortunately, there's a solution to most indoor air quality problems. York offers an array of choices designed to ventilate stale indoor air, zap airborne germs, trap airborne particles and moisturize parched air.


GENERATORS


Generator Models by Kohler

Small Residential | Mid-Size Residential | Large Residential & Light Commercial

Your home is a busy place. And a commercial-grade KOHLER® automatic home generator keeps that rhythm going by providing dependable protection during unexpected power outages. Available with 8.5 to 100kW output capabilities, KOHLER® home generators provide worry-free emergency power to support your electrical needs for days, or even weeks. Clean, quiet, automatic backup power - just what your family needs to be safe and comfortable.

Automatic, hands-off operation

In the event of a utility power outage, the transfer switch - working in tandem with the generator - automatically starts the generator to restore power to the home, whether you're home or away.
