Lost in New Mexico

My house was built in the mid-1960s. I would like to replace the current gas heating air-blowing system with something more efficient and quiet. The system is located in a closet in the hallway and is the original system installed in the 1960s. It appears to be in good condition (checked and cleaned every year) and it's performance is okay, but I'm sure there are now better and more efficient systems. I'd like to possibly relocate the heating unit to the garage (it's a large garage)and utilize the hall space for storage. Also, I would like to replace the swamp coolers that are located on each side of the house. They're not efficient and at tiimes blow nothing but hot air. There's enough hot air in New Mexico in the summer and I'd like something cooler and more comfortable. Does anyone recommend refrigeration? If so, what brand name? Can someone recommend a company/website that deals with more modern, up to date heating and cooling systems. Thanks.
