Construction and Installation

Building the Future

With every job, no matter how big or small, our experienced project managers, foremen and installation crews work tirelessly until completion. Working with owners, general contractors and other trades, Key strives to keep projects on time and on budget. We have HVAC installation capabilities from small simple projects to large, complex commercial high-rise buildings. Our refrigeration crews install everything from large cold storage warehouses to small convenience stores. Key also has a marine division that installs refrigeration and HVAC on all types of vessels. We pride ourselves on having safe, clean construction sites that are well organized. Attention to detail and proper execution are paramount to our success.


Keeping Products Cold and People Comfortable

We have service coverage up and down the West Coast with local dispatchers in each branch who are familiar with the areas we service. We offer 24 hour on-call service year-round, rain or shine.

Energy Management Systems (EMS)

Control Temperature, Control Costs

Energy management is the future of our industry. Building controls and monitoring can help reduce costs by utilizing remote accessibility and managing energy usage. Installing refrigeration leak detection systems help reduce leaks and keep our clients in compliance with state and federal regulators. Our EMS technicians are well-versed with all major EMS manufacturers such as Emerson, Microthermo, and Danfoss. Our EMS teams install and service systems around the county.

Alternative Refrigerants

For the Well-Being of Our Planet

Key strives to be a good global citizen and aims to reduce our industry’s impact on the environment. Whenever possible, Key promotes the use of alternative refrigerants such as C02, ammonia, glycol, and propane that inflict less harm on the ozone layer compared with traditional refrigerants. We keep current on regulatory changes that affect our clients to make the most suitable recommendations. Our technicians have installed and serviced countless alternative refrigerant systems. It is good to go green!
