Ricotta Features High Quality Products from These Top Brands
Amana Heating and Air Conditioning Systems
Since the 1950’s, both residential and commercial customers in the St. Louis area have trusted Ricotta Heating & Air for their heating and cooling needs. We are proud to be a certified dealer for Amana heating and air conditioning systems.
With Lifetime Unit Replacement Limited Warranties on the heat exchangers in all Amana brand gas furnaces and the compressors in many Amana brand air conditioners and heat pumps, you can be assured of your products’ long-lasting performance.
Amana: Renowned Quality, Durability and Performance
Generations of Americans have trusted the Amana® brand for heating and cooling systems that outlast the others. The renowned quality, durability and performance of today’s Amana brand heating and cooling systems continue to provide homeowners and businesses with premium, lasting comfort.
Amana Air Conditioners
For long-lasting performance, install an Amana® brand central air conditioning system in your home. Keep your home cool, save energy costs, and enjoy what we believe to be industry-leading warranty protection.
Compare the features and benefits of an Amana brand central air conditioning system and you will discover why more and more homeowners choose the Amana brand.
Amana Heat Pumps
Amana® brand heat pumps provide both cooling and heating comfort from a single system. You’ll be able to select the perfect system for your home as the Amana brand offers a full line of heat pump systems.
Amana Gas Furnaces
Most homeowners wish that the gas furnace in their home would last forever. And that wish could be granted when you install an Amana® brand gas furnace. The complete line-up of Amana brand gas furnaces offer what we believe to be the best warranty programs in the heating and cooling industry.
Several furnace models offer variable and multi-speed performance. This provides enhanced indoor comfort by slowly ramping up to your thermostat setting rather that simply starting at full speed. This alleviates the ‘cold air-blow’ often associated with single-speed furnaces.
Coleman Home Air Conditioning System
Coleman® Heating & Air Conditioning home comfort systems are designed and built to provide maximum quality, comfort, and efficiency to your home.
Whether you’re looking for a furnace, an air conditioner or a complete heating and cooling solution, Ricotta Heating & Air can evaluate factors such as your home’s size, age, number of rooms, regional climate, and utility costs to select the best system for your home.
Coleman® comfort is yours all summer long with our split system air conditioner design. This design has two parts: an indoor unit, such as a furnace or air handler, and an outdoor unit.
The outdoor unit works by cooling a refrigerant, which in turn cools air in the indoor unit for circulation through your home. Indoor and outdoor units are designed to work together. When the air conditioner is properly matched with a furnace or air handler, you get maximum efficiency and longer system life.
Here’s what makes it work A “split system” central air conditioner includes a compressor, fan, condenser coil, evaporator coil and refrigerant. The system removes heat from indoor air and transfers it outside, allowing the indoor air to be circulated and cooled (which is measured by SEER, Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). A central air conditioning system uses electricity as its power source.

More than 100 years ago, Edwin Ruud, a Norwegian mechanical engineer, came to America and developed the first successful automatic water heater. That early success marked the beginning of a tradition of innovation and value that led to the introduction of RUUD heating and air conditioning equipment in the 1950s.
Since then, the RUUD has grown into one of North America’s largest manufacturers of quality heating, cooling and water heating products for residential and light commercial use.
Today, RUUD operates manufacturing facilities employing highly trained workers and state-of-the-art equipment. Over the years, the product lines have expanded, changed, and improved significantly as new design techniques and better manufacturing technologies have become available.
What remains unchanged throughout our history, however, is our commitment to producing the most reliable, long-lasting, efficient equipment you can buy.

According to the rule of thumb, you know you need to replace your HVAC or furnace when the cost of repairs approaches 30% of the value of your heating or cooling system.
That’s because a new system can be 50% more efficient if the existing unit is more than 12 years old. With new equipment, the utility savings start paying you back immediately. Plus, you may avoid costly repair bills in the years ahead.
Advancements in central heating and cooling technology are improving energy efficiency as much as 7% per year. So replacing a heat pump , air conditioner or furnace that is more than 10 years old may be a smart move. Our highest efficiency York® systems can cut your heating and cooling bills in half, depending on the efficiency of your old system.
Comfort is a Consideration, Too
An uncomfortable home can be a sign of improper equipment operation, duct problems or inadequate insulation. Dust, pollen and mold spores can invade your house from leaky ducts that pull dirty air from attics, crawl spaces and basements. Sealing your ducts may be a solution — as well as adding air cleaning equipment. Either way, a properly installed system, ductwork, coils and filters can save money — and your health.

Halcyon products have been designed to provide zoned comfort for residential and commercial applications.
Engineered to install quickly and easily without ductwork, Halcyon systems provide cooling and heating solutions where others cannot.
With Central Air you must cool an entire home when only one room may need cooling. On the other hand, ductless mini-splits cool only the areas you want and not the areas you don’t.
18,000 BTU is a typical minimum central air unit. With ductless mini-splits, you can use 9,000 or 12,000 BTUs.
Typical 3-ton homes are not zoned or require complex zoning systems, which makes it very expensive for the homeowner. With ductless mini-splits, multiple evaporators make zoning as simple as setting a remote control.
Energy wasted in long lengths of uninhabited ductwork means higher energy bills. Less than 5% cooling loss occurs in insulated refrigerant lines compared with up to 25% through ducts.
Retrofitting homes requires cutting holes in walls, floors, ceilings or decreasing closet space with ducts. Ductless mini-splits requires just a 3 or 4” diameter hole in the outside wall. Means less mess and better home aesthetics.

One of Mel’s favorite stories is about how small the original work area was. When they were making 10 foot element they had to manufacture half the element at a time, then open the back door to turn it around to finish.
