We will come to your home and give you a free written estimate and that proposal will be customized to your situation and needs. A Heat Gain / Loss evaluation will be done in order to ensure you are receiving the correct size system to meet your needs.

It is impossible to quote a price without first checking conditions specific to your home. Which direction your home faces, how many windows are in the home, what type of insulation etc. Price will be dependent on the size, SEER rating, and location of the new unit.

[/toggle][toggle title=”What is a SEER rating?” open=”no”]SEER stands for “Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. SEER Ratings indicate the efficiency of HVAC products. The efficiency of central air conditioning units is governed by U.S. law and regulated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The SEER is defined as the total cooling output (in British thermal units or Btu) provided by the unit during its normal annual usage period divided by its total energy input (in watt-hours) during the same period.

R 22 system are going to be phased out. In 2010, manufacturers will only produce New 410 A Systems. 410A refrigerant does not deplete the ozone layer. R 22 is being phased out because it depletes the ozone layer and it encourages global warming.

There will be enough R 22 around to service existing equipment for quite some time. The reason for that is because R 22 has to be recaptured, it cannot be vented into the atmosphere. It is believed that there will be a sufficient supply of recaptured R 22 to keep everybody nice and cold for some time. By 2020 it is expected to be phased out completely.
