Installing a New Air Conditioner

1) What Brands Do You Offer?

We are a Trane and Goodman authorized dealer.

2) How Long Does an Install Take?

Most residential air conditioner installs can be completed in one day.

3) How Soon Can You Install?

Depending on the demand, we can generally install within 1 to 2 weeks.

 

4) Do You Have to Pour a Concrete Pad?

No, we have a precast pad that is made with concrete over Styrofoam. This durable pad is placed on the leveled ground.

5) What Payment Method Do You Accept?

Cash, check, MC, AMEX, and Discover. 

6) Do You Offer Financing?

We have credit card payment options available, such as PayPal.  

7) How Quiet Are The Air Condensing Units?

The Trane units are very quiet due to innovations in compressor and fan design.  The Goodman units are also quiet.

8) What Days Do You Install? 

We install Monday through Friday. 

9) What is a SEER?

Air conditioners are rated by SEER (seasonal energy efficiency rating). The SEER can be compared to miles per gallon for your car.

For every increase of 3 SEER, you save about 20% on utilities. The current SEER rating for new air conditioners begins at 13 and goes over 20 SEER.

To illustrate, let's say an electric bill for an existing 10 SEER air conditioner was $50, the same electric bill with a 13 SEER air conditioner would be about $40, and a 16 SEER would be about $30.

10) Which SEER Should I Choose?

If you plan to be in your home for 10 years or more, a 16 SEER high efficiency air conditioner will save you money over the life of the unit.  However, if you only plan to be in the house for a few years, a standard 13 SEER or 14 SEER unit would be sufficient and has a lower up-front cost.

11) What is Energy Star?

ENERGY STAR products are the same or better than standard products, only they use less energy. To earn the ENERGY STAR rating, air conditioners must be 16 SEER or higher.

Replacing an Existing Air Conditioning Unit

FAQ'S (Frequently Asked Questions)

1) What Components Do You Replace?

We replace the outdoor condensing unit, the pad, the indoor coil, and condensate lines. If the refrigerant lines are easily accessible we will replace them. If the refrigerant lines are not accessible, such as above a ceiling, then the lines are flushed with a solvent.

2) Why Do Refrigerant Lines Need to Be Changed or Flushed?

The older air conditioners used R-22 which is no longer in production and required a mineral based oil. The new R-410A refrigerant uses a synthetic oil and is not compatible with mineral oil. For the best life we need to change or flush the refrigerant lines.  

Replacements include:


1. Condenser

2. Condenser pad

    (made from concrete over a foam core)

3. Indoor coil

4. Replace condensate line to floor drain

5. Replace or flush refrigerant lines

6. New breaker, electrical connections, and permit by our Electrical sub-contractor
