New air conditioner? Be cool

However you want to look at it, buying an air conditioner is a tough job. Homeowners often know what they want … it’s simple, they say, “I want to be cool when it’s hot.” If their AC is broken down, they do not want to wait until tomorrow morning. I hear you, “Me want air conditioner, now!”

Well I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but there is quite a bit more involved in this process than just throwing an air conditioner in the backyard. We want to do the job right and well to ensure your comfort not just tomorrow but years from now. A new AC system is an investment. Be sure to dot those Is and cross those Ts before writing a check. You’ll be happy tomorrow and for years to come.

When we talk to homeowners we discuss SEER ratings, warranty on the equipment, the guys installing your new air conditioner, and the list goes on and on. An air conditioner should last 10 to 15 years. Be sure you pause to get all of the information needed for your home. I promise we’ll do a great job with your patience. Find out…

  1. SEER ratings…seasonal energy efficiency ratio…btu’s of cooling per watt
  2. Warranty on equipment and labor…compressors usually 10 years, parts are 10 years and labor is 1 year…sometimes 10 years.
  3. Who is doing your installation. Your choice  can make or break many years of quality operation and comfort. Make sure they are good people. Hopefully this is a company that demands back ground checks, drug tests and BMV checked as well for DUI and poor driving records.
  4. Size of your home. This will help to know the size of the AC unit to recommend.

If your AC system is on its last legs, start thinking about the purchase now. Get information. Good luck and “be cool.” Just email me and ask questions. I’m here to help!
