Air Conditioning Installation & Replacement in Plano
When should you replace your central air conditioning system?
Has your air conditioner failed? Or is it simply not performing as well as it should? It may be time for an energy-efficient and quiet new AC system. For air conditioning installation business owners and homeowners like you can rely on, we’re here for you at Devard's Air Conditioning and Heating.
As heating and cooling systems get older, their energy efficiency often drops dramatically and lead to higher utility bills. Plus, they get noisy and need to be repaired more often. If you’re paying for repairs and maintenance on an air conditioning system that’s more than seven years old, you could get better comfort and put an end to some of your repair bills for a while by having us install a new HVAC system for you. Changing to an efficient new HVAC system will almost certainly make a real impact on your utility bills too.
Why not schedule a complimentary in-home consultation now? We’ll send one of our trained pros to look at your existing system, do load calculations, inspect existing ducts, and give you a written estimate on a new HVAC system. And you’ll have brand and size choices. Our hand-picked team of HVAC installation experts are licensed, insured and ready to do your job right.
Is it worth replacing your air conditioner?
Actually, the EPA recommends replacing your air conditioner every 10 to 15 years.
Ok, you're right, admittedly it might seem strange that we're recommending something if we clearly state it has a 10 to 15 year lifespan. But this is because no matter how well-maintained an AC unit is, there comes a time when the compressors and the coils start wearing down and you'll see that uncomfortable cycling on and off -- making everyone in your home hot and sweaty. So while it might be cheaper than what you were expecting to spend today...you'll be spending for even more expensive repairs down the line.
Don't worry, we know you're thinking it. How will I know when to replace my AC unit?
Your current system is beginning to break down due to age if after running your air conditioner for 15 minutes there's condensation on the windows or doors that stay wet for longer than 10 minutes. If you notice that your air conditioner isn't cooling like it used to and you see your monthly energy costs skyrocketing (often caused by a broken thermostat), then it might be time to think about having a new air conditioning system installed.
How much does it cost to replace an AC unit?
This can be difficult to answer because there are a variety of different models and the prices fluctuate, depending on where you purchase a brand new system from. It's best to research prices by looking for HVAC contractors in your area.
On average, installing an AC unit can cost anywhere from $4,000 to over $8,000. The price varies depending on the type of air conditioner you are installing, which is determined by size and BTUs.
If it's just for one room in your home then pricing will be significantly less. If you're looking for a large-scale installation that will cool your entire house with central air conditioning units, expect the price to be much higher, because this usually requires copper piping or dual-piping (running piping underground or through walls), an electrician to install wires along with the system through multiple rooms, labor costs for drilling holes in walls to run pipes and make connections between units within each room/area of the house, and other factors.
Air Conditioning Unit Choices For Every Situation
At Devard’s, we’ve come to understand that our name stands above the rest when it comes to air conditioning units. Part of that is because of our decades of experience serving people in Plano and across North Texas. And part of that is because we offer systems from Trane, a powerhouse brand. Our expert technicians have the very best training and can help you decide which of the many Trane air conditioning units is right for your specific application. Other companies may not have the experience or the product selection you need.
You see, central air installation isn’t as easy as just putting a new AC unit into the hole where the old one was. Technology has progressed, of course, and HVAC units are more energy-efficient that ever before. Plus, there’s a very real possibility that your old system wasn’t sized right to start with. And there may be existing ductwork issues that must be addressed if you’re to get the most from your new AC system. When you deal with us, we’ll make sure the job is done right. Our 100 percent customer satisfaction policy ensures that.
