Air Conditioner Sales
Let us make buying an air conditioner for your home easy
Buying an air conditioner for your home is not always a simple task. There are a variety of factors to consider and making the wrong decision could cost you more money down the road.
Our friendly and knowledgeable sales team can help you select the ideal air conditioner for your home.
What should I know before buying an air conditioner?
When considering a new air conditioner for your home, here are a few things you should know to help inform your decision:
- Size of home
- When choosing an air conditioner, it’s important to know how much space you will need to cool. If you know how much square footage your home has, our sales team can help you work through the variety of other factors to determine the proper cooling requirements of your new unit.
- Existing ductwork
- The presence or absence of ductwork in your home will affect what types of air conditioners you can choose from. Existing ducts open the doors to powerful central air units that provide whole home comfort, while a lack of ducts will push your decision towards window or split systems.
- Energy efficiency
- The energy efficiency of your home is a factor in determining the ideal air conditioner unit. Things like high-performing windows and better insulation mean your home will be more resistant to temperature changes. This in turn means your new A/C unit won’t have to work as hard to keep your home comfortable.
- Required features
- Some modern air conditioners come with additional features that should be considered before deciding. For example, smart air conditioners can connect to an app and allow you to control your home temperature from your mobile device.
Types of air conditioners
There are many different types of air conditioners that are suitable for a variety of situations and circumstances.
For whole-home comfort, nothing beats a powerful central air system. It can keep your home at just the right temperature all summer long by circulating cool air through new or existing ductwork.
For room-to-room temperature control, mini split air conditioning units give you un-paralleled control. Because they don’t need ductwork to function, they are a great choice for homes without an existing duct system.
For single room or small residence cooling needs, a window or portable unit might do the trick. They are easy to install and can be an effective option for situations where a more complete solution isn’t necessary.
Our knowledgeable team can help you determine which type of air conditioner is best for your home. Let us help you take the guess-work out of your home comfort.

Frequently Asked Questions
I upgraded to a central air system, do I need to cover the outdoor unit during winter?
The condenser that sits outside your home is built to withstand the elements, so covering is not needed to protect it. Covering can prevent debris from getting inside your unit, but if the unit is accidentally turned on before the cover is removed it can damage your cooling system.
That’s why we recommend leaving it uncovered but getting an annual check-up before turning it on. Our technician will be sure to remove any debris in addition to the regular inspection and cleaning, so you can be confident that your system is giving 100% throughout the summer.
Does my brand new air conditioner still need maintenance?
While it might be easy to assume that your new air conditioner won’t need maintenance for a while, you can still benefit from having a professional service your unit before the next heating season.
As part of your yearly maintenance, our service technicians clean out your machine to ensure there is no buildup or debris causing additional wear on your unit. This helps extend it’s lifespan and improve it’s energy efficiency.
How long will a new air conditioner last?
Air conditioners last for 17-20 years on average. In order to get the most out of your new air conditioning unit, we highly recommend regular maintenance and service.
