If your air conditioner is no longer working and it's time to upgrade to a newer option, it's to talk with the professionals. Have an air conditioning installation company come to your property to assess your home and your unit's needs, and give you a quote for the job.
When talking with the team, explain that you want a high-quality and energy-efficient unit. Look at these specifics about the job and the unit.
Installation Expense Details
There should be a lot of information in your quote for a new air conditioner. Some of the details that you want to be included are:
- The cost of your new air conditioner unit
- The installation labor expenses
- The permit fees
- The cost of other materials like plumbing or wiring
- The removal of the old unit
You want to know what the total bill will be before you agree to pick an air conditioning installation team to do the work.
Other details should be on the quote about the company that is giving you the estimate. This should include the following:
- Registered business name
- Proof of certification
- Insurance information
- Name of the manager overseeing your case
- Phone number
- Business address
You should easily be able to contact the company about your quote. You should also have information about how long the quote is good for.
Unit Chosen for the Home
Getting a new air conditioner installed allows you to choose a new unit size. If the proper size was not installed originally, you could have high energy bills and deal with inefficiency. Ask the installation company about getting an Energy-Star-approved air conditioner for your home. This means the unit has met all efficiency requirements set by the government, and it will be one of the most highly efficient units on the market.
Another advantage of installing a new energy-efficient air conditioner at your home is that you could possibly qualify for some type of rebate on your taxes. This depends on the city and state where you live, but you could end up benefiting at the end of the year when you file because you upgraded to a unit that is going to reduce energy consumption.
Get at least two quotes so you are able to compare the different costs of parts and services. From there you can make the best decision by finding the right unit and installation team to get your home cool and comfortable.
