Ram Refrigeration & Air Conditioning, Inc. was founded in 1980 by Doug Smith, a resident of Las Vegas since 1964 and a member of the Clark High School graduating class of 1971. In the beginning Ram Air was focused on residential air conditioning and heating service. In 1985 the company bought Circle Air, a small commercial refrigeration company. The consolidated company operating as RAMCO focused primarily on light commercial refrigeration. Then, in the late 1990s, RAMCO changed its name to Ram Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, Inc.
Through the years Ram Refrigeration has developed a reputation for excellence in service. Many competitors call on us to help them solve complicated problems. We have always taken a holistic, comprehensive approach to troubleshooting examining all aspects of systems in each of its modes of operation. Our approach has always been to measure and verify performance and prove defects before deciding on the right course of action.
In 1998 Doug met Rob Falke of National Comfort Institute and things really changed. Rob has a unique ability to write procedures and define methodical approaches to system performance. National Comfort Institute helped us to organize our approach to measuring and improving system performance. Since that time Ram Air has become the leading company in Las Vegas for testing, diagnosing, and improving performance of air conditioning systems. We take a whole house approach to problem solving that often leads us to improving building systems as part of a prescription for improving home performance and increasing energy efficiency.
For us it's all about the BTUs. First, we tune the units to their maximum capacity and efficiency as rated by the manufacturer. Then, we test the air distribution system and make modifications and repairs where needed to make sure all the energy used or developed by the unit is delivered to the conditioned space. Often, we have to make duct modifications to insure that the right amount of air is delivered to the right space at the right velocity and temperature.
