Picking the Right AC Contractor for a Quality Installation

A properly-working air conditioning system is one of the most important appliances in your home – a statement you’ll likely agree with as the temperatures are hitting 110 degrees, and more. For the best experience with a Phoenix AC replacement, it’s not just the brand of equipment that’s important, but who you choose to install your new system as well. So how do you know you’re selecting a Phoenix AC service contractor that has the experience, equipment and reputation you can trust?

Chas Roberts Air Conditioning & Plumbing – Arizona’s top air conditioning contractor – has put together a list of questions you should ask any prospective Phoenix AC replacement provider.

How do you know what size system to recommend for my home?

Any professional HVAC installer should know how to measure your home to obtain the correct size of equipment. This is the only way to make sure the size of the system you purchase will be large enough to cool your home, but not any larger than you need. This is one of the benefits to working with a reputable, licensed Phoenix AC replacement contractor on your installation.

Do you sell ENERGY STAR equipment?

ENERGY STAR certified central air conditioners have higher seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) and energy efficiency ratio (EER) ratings, which, according to energystar.gov, makes them over 15 percent more efficient than conventional models. And more efficiency means lower monthly energy bills. Also, according to energystar.gov, nearly half of all heating and cooling equipment in U.S. homes never performs to advertised capacity and efficiency due to incorrect installation, which means homeowners pay higher operating costs over the life of the equipment. Start off on the right foot with your new system by making sure your installer offers ENERGY STAR certified equipment and knows how to install it correctly.

Do you offer ongoing maintenance for my new AC system?

Getting regular maintenance is just as important as getting a quality installation. Chas Roberts offers a maintenance plan – the Comfort Assurance Plan (C.A.P.). The C.A.P. provides twice annual check-ups to help ensure maximum efficiency, foresee any possible problems that may occur in the near future and keep your air conditioning system running at its peak efficiency year-round.

Can you install and set up a programmable thermostat?

Any quality Phoenix AC service contractor will encourage the use of a programmable thermostat and be able to help you set it up. Programmable thermostats allow you to control the temperature in your home at different times of day without having to manually adjust your thermostat. This helps you easily save money and energy.
