Air Conditioning.

Air conditioning companies sound like car salesmen these days. "Buy and air conditioner and get a free 600" TV" You're smarter than that and you know nothing comes for free. Here's the straight goods.

When you buy an air conditioner, most of the time you have one thing on your mind: I want to keep my house cool! How much an air conditioner will affect your monthly energy bill often comes as an afterthought. Avoid a nasty surprise by investing in a high efficiency air conditioner. Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio or SEER is a common efficiency rating used for air conditioning units. The higher the, number the higher the efficiency; the higher the efficiency the less money you spend in the long run.

So why "Starting at"?

There are a few reasons your air conditioning install may cost more than a base price. We think it only fair that you're aware.

Here are some factors that could affect the price of your a/c installation. 

  • Your basement is finished. If we need to fish any electrical or refrigerant lines through, above or around finished spaces it costs us more in time.
  • Your electrical panel isn't located in the mechanical room. We need to run line voltage to the unit, if the electrical panel isn't easily accessible, it could cost more in time.
  • Your electrical panel has no more room on it for breakers. Adding a sub panel will cost time and material.
