Q: How much does an air conditioning system cost?
A: There are many factors that determine the cost of a central air conditioning system. Aside from the choice of unit, model and size, the most important factor is proper installation to ensure your new system operates as it should. Contact us today and get a FREE estimate.
Q: Can I get a quote over the phone?
A: We can give you a ballpark estimate if we have enough information, but it’s hard to determine an accurate estimate without visiting your home.
Q: What does SEER stand for?
A: SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. It is used to indicate the efficiency of air conditioning systems. The higher the SEER number, the more cooling you get per unit of energy. Today’s cooling units are up to 40 percent more efficient than those made as recently as 10 years ago.
Q: My home does NOT have forced-air heating, and there is no ductwork. Can I still get central air conditioning?
A: Yes. Today there are simple, ductless air conditioning options that make it possible for us to install a quiet, efficient air conditioning system in your home even if it doesn’t have ductwork.
Ductless air conditioning systems consist of one or more indoor air distribution units linked by refrigeration lines to an outdoor compressor. This flexible tubing can be positioned inside your walls and ceilings with a minimum of inconvenience. Installing ductless air conditioning costs a little more than standard central air systems, but much less than the cost of installing ductwork and a central air conditioning system.
Q: Do I really need a tune-up for my air conditioning system?
A: An air conditioning tune-up and inspection will help catch most equipment problems before they result in a breakdown. Many breakdowns occur on the hottest day of the year — because that’s when your air conditioning system is under the most stress. And because a tune-up ensures that your system will run at peak efficiency, it will lower your electric bills. A system that’s running efficiently can save you as much as 10 percent on your annual cooling costs.
