HVAC Installation

Redding is reknown for a few things to include our World Famous Lakes, the Sun-Dial bridge and temperatures that exceed 100 defrees throughout the Summer months.

HVAC units on top of roofs or commercial buildings is a very common setup. Because of the extreme pressure the Sun (& subsequent heat) can put on your HVAC units, they get replaced more frequently in Shasta & Tehama Counties than Nationwide.

Rooftop HVAC installation requires a special kind of crane expertise and Redding Crane has been offering that service for decades. If you are replacing your HVAC unit, call us and ensure the job is done right the first time.
