AC tune-up / Preventive Maintenance

Preventative Maintenance is exactly what is. Its in the title. We are here to keep your comfort system running when you need it most, when its 98 degrees out side and your melting or 43 outside and your teeth are chartering. You HVAC system is only good if it works when you need it.

Of course your system is only going to break down when you need it the most and stuck in an uncomfortable situation waiting for it to get fixed and an unexpected cost.

Plan ahead, your pocket book and your family will thank you along with complete comfort.Premanative-Maitanance--element198

You wouldn’t drive your car without doing your oil changes and routine preventative maintenance on it, would you?

Your heating and air conditioning system is no exception to the rule. You need something reliable an this only happens with cleaning, checking and tuning your system to keep it at its optimal performance and if there should be an issue catching it while its a small issue before it becomes a large issue.

  • Its required by your heating and air conditioning manufacture to have maintenance done or your warranties will be voided
  • Maintained equipment has a longer life span
  • Energy bills are reduced as system is able to work at full capacity
  • A clogged filter can cause up to $3,000 in damage
  • Most major repairs could have prevented if caught early
  • 59% of people replace their system in mid summer due to failure
  • Your HVAC is also probably the most expensive appliances you own
  • Surveys show that the average replacement cost for an HVAC system is about $8,400, but could range from less than $5,000 to over $20,000

Our Healthy Home Program will help clean & improve your whole home.  We can make the invisible visible. Utilizing HomeAdviceTM, a simple test from an independent 3rd party for assessing indoor air quality (IAQ), we provide you with a professional, detailed report that identifies IAQ issues and provides recommendations to improve air quality.

Heating and air conditioning system installed cost

Heating and Air Conditioning system installed cost


How much for a Heating and air conditioning system installed cost? Prices can range from $5,000-$20,000 installed for a new air conditioning system installed with evaporator coil and furnace. Do you know what components are in a heating and air conditioning system? Or are you looking for Air conditioner installed cost only and not a system? (there is a difference) see more on Air conditioner installed cost only here....

There also additional benefits for getting a whole new heating and air conditioning system.



  1. Additional Warranties

  2. Additional Guarantees

  3. Increased energy savings

  4. Increased discounts

  5. Manufacture rebate

  6. Utility Rebates


The 5+ components to a residential HVAC heating and air conditioning system:


Condenser or heat pump



This is the heart of the system. it pumps the refrigerant into the home and takes the heat out 

Condensations when choosing a condenser or heat pump...

  • SEER rating you prefer (basically the gas mileage you're looking to get 14 -25 SEER)

  • Stages or Speeds


1-stage is on -  off. (old school or budget models, what they put in new construction to save building cost)

2-stage is two speeds, more accurate, better temp control, lower bills, more comfort. (have two different air conditioners is one)

inventor or variable, Precision accuracy within +/- 1 degree and lowest noise level. (like have the exact size you need no matter the temperature)

  • AHRI Rating (just because a manufacture call is a 14 seer or 16 seer doesn't mean that is what it gets. it means its capable. Get a certified AHRI rating)

  • Size of unit or tonnage (1.5 ton - 5 ton or 12,000 btu's per ton) A Manuel J should be done to calculate this.

  • Brand (Brands affect price and warranty) Maytag, RKM, Acpro, Goodman, Lennox


 

Evaporator coil. 



This is the lungs of the system. Where we cool the air and transfer it outside

Condensations when choosing a evaporator coil...

  • Orientation of indoor unit (up flow, horizontal, down flow)

  • Metering device (this regulates the refrigerant so it accurate and may increase SEER ratings if a Thermal expansion valve is used instead of a piston)

  • AHRI Rating (its listed again because it important. The wrong coil will effect it SEER rating. Get a certified AHRI rating)


examples of coil types



 

Furnace or Air Handler. 




This is what pushes the air through out your home

Condensations when choosing an evaporator coil...

  • Orientation of indoor unit (up flow, horizontal, down flow)

  • Blower type.


PSC motor (better than 40 years ago but only on speed for heating and 1 for cooling)

ECM Motor (Smarter motor helping adjust speed in increments reducing energy cost and run times)

Variable speed ECM (invent number of speed to get lower noise and increased seer ratings)

  • AHRI Rating (its listed again because it important. The wrong blower will effect it SEER rating. Get a certified AHRI rating)

  • Heating stages (1 stage,2 stage, modulating. In southern California most heaters are over sized and 2 stage+ helps bring comfort and gas savings back in your pocket)


 

Filtration


Protect you invest and health


  • 1 inch filter (no air cleaning very little to no equipment protection)

  • 4" Media Filtration (the higher the MERV rating the more filtration.  used for equipment protection, allergy relief, virus control, asthma relief)


 

 

Controls & thermostats


 


Your system can only do what its told to do


  • WiFi control (control on your phone from anywhere)

  • Alerts ( self monitoring system protection)

  • Programmable (save money by reduced run time when not needed)

  • Energy reports (reports that show you how to reduce energy cost)

  • Geo fencing (Turns on before you get home so your comfortable when you arrive)

  • Compatibility (more advanced systems need a more advance control)


 

Ducting



The delivery system for your heating and air, AKA The veins


  • R Value (the high the value the more effective it is)

  • Material (Metal ducting, flex, underground, high velocity, spiral, FSK. all have benefits and negatives)

  • Sizing (proper sizing should be done with a Manuel d Calcs. what good is 5 ton system if the ducting can only allow 3 tons of air.)

  • Sealing and leakage (Leaky ducting can cause your new system  to leak out as much as 20% and cost your over 300% more in the lifetime of your new system. get it done right)

Air conditioner system installed cost

Air conditioner system installed cost.


How much does it cost to install a new air conditioning system & evaporator coil? Prices can range from $4,200-$10,117 installed for a new air conditioning system installed with evaporator coil. Prices included evaporator coil, system flushing,  metering device, labor, tax and miscellaneous material to install new units properly. There are a lot of factors that can affect pricing dramatically when looking at the system. Or are you looking for Air conditioner installed cost only and not a system? (there is a difference) see more on Air conditioner installed cost only here....

Here are some examples of variables in the cost:

  • Size of unit or tonnage (1.5 ton - 5 ton or 12,000 btu's per ton)

  • Location of indoor unit (attic, garage, closet)

  • Orientation of indoor unit (up flow, horizontal, down flow)

  • Replacement or New condenser (replacing the existing with a newer model or adding a/c which in case will need electrical, plumbing, evaporator coil and possibly more)

  • If replacement, is the new unit compatible to your existing set up (existing refrigerant lines right size, Evaporator coil capable of handling new units, refrigerant type existing to new)

  • SEER rating you prefer (basically the gas mileage you're looking to get)

  • AHRI Rating (just because a manufacture call is a 14 seer or 16 seer doesn't mean that is what it gets. it means its capable. Get a certified AHRI rating)

  • Brand (Brands affect price and warranty) Maytag, RKM, Acpro, Goodman, Lennox

  • Complexity of Job (new electrical, corrosion pad, disconnect, whip, system flush, roof mount, heat pump, 1 or 2 stages, crane)

  • City Code (ever city has a different code requirement and cost)

  • Professional installation (not all installs a created equal. This isn't a refrigerator that you plug in and it works. installation is key to performance and longevity of a new a/c system)


Did you know that installing a new unit without using a licensed contractor voids manufacture warranties?
