Mechanical Construction Austin, Texas

Efficient Air Conditioning & Electric has a long history of commercial and high-specification residential construction projects throughout Texas, primarily Central and South. We pride ourselves on tackling jobs with difficult requirements and developing creative options to enhance owners’ properties at the best possible cost.

Our vast experience stems from our company’s history in the industry. We were founded in 1976 as Comfort Engineering and later became known as Comfort Mechanical and, most recognizably, RM Mechanical. In 2008, owners Molly and George Drazic rebranded the company as Efficient Air Conditioning.

We typically handle 50 to 70 construction projects each year. They range from very small to very large and include new construction, remodeling, finish outs, ground up, plan and spec, and design build.

From a regulatory perspective, we maintain all certifications, programs and records – including background checks, driving records, OSHA compliance and certified pay compliance – to ensure our crews can work on any project, including schools and medical and government facilities. We have a zero-tolerance policy for recreational drug use and perform both pre-employment and random drug screening. We have also completed both major LEED Platinum and Austin Green Building projects and are registered with the State of Texas and U.S. government as a woman-owned business (HUB).
