The number one question Silver State techs are asked by homeowners faced with having to replace their old HVAC system is how much is it going to cost? The next question asked is how big of unit should be install? Most homeowners often believe they need a bigger air conditioning unit than they already have. Almost always that is not the case.
AC Installation Cost Vary Greatly Because There Are Many Questions to Answer First
The answer to the first question varies greatly. Especially here in the Tucson area. And it's also going to depend on the time of year that you want to replace your equipment, too. In the spring and fall manufacturers offer rebates and attractive financing programs, but In the heat of the summer most of those go away.
Free Heating and Air Replacement Quotes
That's why you will seldom get a quote to replace an air conditioning system over the phone. In fact you should be very suspicious if someone offered you a quote without visiting your location. Any air conditioning contractor of good repute, should do a site inspection and calculate the load on the air conditioner themselves. How else are you going to know if you have the right size unit to begin with? We offer free air conditioner and heat pump replacement quotes.
Purchasing an Air Conditioner Over the Internet
This is a big No-No! Of course the air-conditioning contractor wants to protect their territory. We're not going to argue that point. But the manufacturer has laid down the law that they are not going to stand by the warranty of an air conditioner bought over the internet and installed by who knows who in most cases.
Don’t Be Haunted by a Bad HVAC Equipment Installation
One of the highest reasons for problems with a heating and air conditioning system is that it was improperly installed. Having an unauthorized contractor install the unit is just asking for trouble. There are just too many things that can go wrong. These systems have computers. Static electricity discharged into the circuit board could fry it. When something does go wrong, you're going to be stuck with an expensive door stop.
What Size Air Conditioner Should You Install?
An air conditioner’s capacity is typically measured by tonnage in the United States. This is the cooling energy released by a 1 ton of block ice melting over the course of a day. Sounds funny, we know, but that's what it is. Getting the tonnage exactly right is critical. An oversized air conditioner or heat pump will cool the house too quickly so that it doesn't effectively dehumidifier the air.
If it's too small the ac will run constantly and your energy bills will go through the roof. The equipment or wear out sooner than it should, too. The contractor should show you the heat load calculation of your home. It will take into account factors such as the home’s location, the area and cubic footage of living space, the number and size of windows, and it's orientation relative to the sun.
Should You Update or Replace the Duct Work?
That's a great question and one we do not get often enough. An old air conditioning system is usually located in an old house and old duct work is not usually very good. In fact they probably leak a lot. You're probably losing as much as 20% of the cooled and heated air into your attic or crawl space.
Sometimes contractors just lay out the duct work inefficiently when the house was built. All builders are guilty of doing it the cheapest way which is not usually the best way. Have your heating and air conditioner installation contractor take another look at your duct work. Many times we find that you zone off areas and there aren’t enough return ducts.
We service and repair all brands of air conditioners including Trane, Carrier, Bryant, Lennox, American Standard, Maytag, Goodman and more. We can help you by ending your HVAC problems.
