3 Ways To Make AC Installation In Austin A Breeze
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It may seem that AC installation in Austin is a difficult process. There are so many choices out there when it comes to what unit to buy and how efficient it should be. The good news is that if you follow these three tips, then you can make replacing your system virtually painless.

1. Find a great technician.

Even if you don't bother to read any of the other points, you will benefit from taking this point seriously. Finding a great technician means that you will have someone to guide you through the entire process, which is invaluable. Of course, first you will have to search for and find that person or company that you feel you can trust and work with. It just takes three steps to locate your preferred company.

The first step is to get recommendations. You can go through business sources like the Better Business Bureau, the Internet, or your homeowner's insurance agent, or you can go for personal sources like friends and family. Better yet, use a combination of sources to come up with a few different names. If you hear the name or names of certain companies coming up again and again through these different sources, then you know that you are on the right track.

But don't just trust the first name you hear. Your second step is to do some follow up work to ensure the company you are considering working with is quality. How do you do this? Contact them to find out if they carry the proper licensing and insurance. While you have them on the phone, you may want to ask about any maintenance programs they offer as well as how their employees are paid. The latter question can play an important part in your decision because some employers pay their employees based on commission, which can motivate them to try to talk you into more expensive products and services.

Your third step is to get an estimate. This step is only needed if you have two or more companies that you need to choose between. This helps you compare prices so you can get the best deal. Just be sure to ask for an itemized estimate so you can compare the products and services being included in all of the estimates so you can be sure that you are fairly comparing the two companies. On occasion, some companies may leave things out of their estimate in order to keep their bid low.

2. Get a size estimate.

Before you can get your AC installation in Austin, you will need to get a size estimate. Your technician should do this, but if he doesn't do it automatically, you should request that he perform an estimate. This is because installing the correct sized unit for your home is imperative if you want your system to run efficiently. If you get the wrong size unit in either direction, you will end up with a higher energy bill and lower comfort levels. Units that are too big will end up leaving your home humid, and units that are too small can make parts of your house dry out and crack. Get an estimate to make sure your unit is just right.

3. Pay attention to energy ratings.

Air conditioners that are Energy Star approved will have a rating. This will be measured in either EER or SEER, but the main thing that you should know is that the higher the number, the more efficient it is. This helps you determine how much energy you will be using when your system is on, which is information that has an important impact on your wallet.

So if you need an AC installation in Austin, then follow these three steps and you can be sure that you are getting the job done right.

Your AC installation in Austin is important, so take the time to make sure it is done right.
