A Lifetime of Achievement
On October 25, 1939, the C.A. Olsen Manufacturing Company, later known as Luxaire®, was incorporated in Ohio by Mr. Clarence A. Olsen and a few of his associates. Shortly after, the manufacturing of coal and gas warm-air furnaces began in Elyria, Ohio, in January 1940. In late 1942, the company became a top ten producer in its field of 300 competitors, but when World War II arrived, Luxaire immediately designed and produced special warm-air heating equipment for army barracks. It was estimated that over 60% of all army barracks were heated with Luxaire equipment.
Over a period of years, the warm-air heating demand continued and expanded. In 1953, the development of the year-round air-conditioning unit for residential application began, and in 1954 the first Luxaire air conditioners hit the market. In October 1955, Westinghouse Electric Corporation acquired the C.A. Olsen Manufacturing Company as a wholly-owned subsidiary, and on August 2, 1965, the original name of the company was changed to Luxaire, Inc. Finally, on July 1, 1981, Luxaire — A Johnson Controls Company — purchased the Westinghouse facility in Norman, Okla., and the Luxaire plant in Elyria, Ohio.

1. What do good central air units have in common?
The best equipment are efficient, operating on minimal electricity to hold utility bills down. They provide steady, dependable performance year after year. When properly maintained a good systems is quiet, long-lasting and low in service needs.
2. How can I be sure my Unit is the right size?
Obviously, an air conditioner that’s too small won’t keep your home sufficiently cool. What many do not realize is that an over-sized system will cycle (turn on and off) more than necessary, wasting expensive energy and possibly putting undue strain on the compressor.
We will specify the cooling capacity of the system in either Btu/h (British thermal units of heat removed per hour) or refrigeration tons (one ton being equal to 12,000 Btu/h).
