Selection of a new air conditioning system is a major decision. It requires careful analysis of the cooling needs for your home, your budget for a new machine, and the cost of running that machine. Whether you are installing a new system for the first time or replacing your existing system will also come into play along with the space available for installation.

Selecting New Air Conditioner Systems in South Florida
Before proceeding with air conditioning installation and replacement in Fort Lauderdale or other South Florida areas, you should first consider what type of system you would like for your home. There are a number of factors that need to be considered here.
First, we will size your home and select the right sized air conditioner to match its cooling needs. The ductwork you currently have installed, along with the heated square footage of your home will affect this measurement. Once this is done, the issue of energy efficiency is discussed. Air conditioners are available with efficiency ratings of up to 20 SEER but they cost more up front, so you will need to decide if the cost of the system or the ongoing cost of operation is more important.
If you do not have room for traditional ductwork based air conditioning installation and replacement, we also offer ductless system and high velocity system installation. These can be matched to the layout of your home and the space available in it.
The Air Conditioning Installation and Replacement Process
For new systems, installation is relatively quick, especially if you have an existing air handler and ductwork system in place. The condenser unit outside and coils inside can be installed in a single day and tested for operation.
When replacing an existing air conditioner in Hollywood or other South Florida areas, we must remove the existing model and dispose of it properly, which is part of the replacement cost. We may also need to upgrade existing components for the new system depending on what is being replaced. In some cases, newer systems require air handler upgrades as well, though this can be discussed before selecting a model.
High velocity and ductless air conditioning installation and replacement can be done quickly as well, though it depends largely on what renovations or improvements to your home are needed to support new ductwork.
