What you should know about replacing your air conditioning system

The number one mistake many home owners make when replacing their air conditioning system is hiring the lowest bidder. This is because the company with the lowest bid will most likely cut corners on the installation of the unit. In short, you get what you pay for.

A homeowner should always shop quality first, and price second. Determine what the best and most efficient system is for your needs. Do research and gather information so you know what exactly needs to be done to properly install the system. Don’t be afraid to ask for a second opinion. We offer a free review of a competitor’s recommendation to see if it makes sense to solve your problem.

Once you are armed with this knowledge you can then choose the right contractor to do the work.

When installing a high-end system in an older home there are many modifications that need to be made including replacing copper refrigerant lines and running larger gauge wiring to the breaker panel. With a new system that requires R410a refrigerant, the line sets should have a thicker gauge wall thickness to allow for the higher pressures that R410a produces. When installing a high-speed system, or a 2 speed system, the wiring to the breaker panel may need to be upgraded.

Almost 75% of Air Conditioning System change-outs are improperly installed.

You cannot simply drop a brand new unit in the spot where the older unit was. It is crucial that older duct work is examined, tested, upgraded or replaced if needed.

Think of it this way – would you put a new high performance Corvette V8 engine into a 1977 Gremlin and expect it to run correctly and not malfunction? This is what some contractors do though, and homeowners suffer because the air conditioning systems do not operate efficiently which results in less energy savings and high repair bills. Even if the unit is under warranty – you still need to pay for labor.

Sean McCutcheon's Air Conditioning and Heating, Inc. makes proper installation our number one priority. This is why we have 100% customer satisfaction, an A+ BBB rating, and the lowest amount of warranty issue problems in Florida.

Beware of home warranties that claim to cover your HVAC

Don’t fall for insurance companies that offer policy’s that supposedly repair or replace your AC when it fails.

They never replace the system – they will just keep sending people out to patch it up and keep it barely running.

According to Angie’s List, “Historically, home warranty service companies have been one of the "worst graded" categories on Angie's List. Members misunderstanding or disagreeing with what their warranties cover and the quality of repair work are cited in the majority of complaints.”
