Ever wanted to know what questions need to be answered when shopping for a new heating and air conditioning system?

How to buy an air conditioner

Central air conditioning and central heating doesn't have to cost you and arm and a legBuying an air conditioner is just like buying any other home improvement. You need to do a few things, ask yourself a few questions, and then with those answers you can fashion a air conditioning system that will suit all of you and your family’s needs and wants.
Please don’t take these questions lightly as you and your family’s heating and air conditioning comfort is going to be affected by the answers and choices made because of those answers for the next 12 to 15 years. Every one of these heating and air conditioning questions is pertinent and I will explain them to you later.

If you want, this could really be to your advantage, print out these questions (here is a pdf) and write in the answers. If the HVAC sales person or technician that comes to your home asks these questions you will have ready-made answers for them that are correct and not just spur of the moment. In other words, you will be in control. Every HVAC salesperson should be asking you these questions in your home prior to picking a system that will match all of your needs and wants.

Here is a list of the questions that you should be asking yourself:

1. Why do I want a new air conditioner? Give at least 3 answers.
2. Where are the hot and cold spots in my home? (All homes have them)

3. How much money do I pay in my average summer electric bill? (July & August)

4. How much money do I pay in my average winter gas bill? (December & January)
5. Does noise bother me at night? Day? Is my existing A/C annoyingly noisy?
6. How much money am I willing to invest in an HVAC system?
7. How much of a down payment do I have? (Answer even you don’t plan on financing.)
8. If I were to finance how much money could I invest each week for this system?
($30, $40, $50, more) _________________
9. When do I want the new system installed?
10. How much longer am I going to live in this home?
(2 years, 5 years, 7 years, 10 years, more)_______________________
11. How much money have I spent on average to maintain my current system each year?
($100, $200, $300, $400, What’s maintenance?)
12. What is the square footage of my home’s living area? Exclude the garage

It wasn’t that many years ago that an air conditioning system was just a box sitting in a closet in your home that blew out cold air. It turned on and off and made the home a little more comfortable. At the same time the heater, forced air heater or forced air furnace, was just, once again, a box that blew out warm air and also made your home a little more comfortable.
That really isn’t the case anymore. In the last 10 to 15 years, especially in the last 5 years, the heating, air conditioning and ventilation industry has gone under some very dramatic changes. Your electric utility company has also gone under some changes as well and unfortunately they have done so with your pocket book. They have been upping rates year after year. This is something that you can fight and something that you should take into account when choosing a heating and air conditioning home comfort system.

There are many items on the market now that have changed the way indoor heating and air conditioning is looked at. Your central heater and central air conditioner is no longer just a couple of boxes that blow out warmed or cooled air. They are vital to your indoor air quality and they are vital to your health as well as your comfort.

Some of the items on market now that haven’t been in the past are:
Humidifiers, steam and bypass.
Air Cleaners, true-pleated, electrostatic, electronic, HEPA, Accuclean
Air Purifiers, ultra-violet –ozone –non-ozone
Remote Control, temperature anticipating, smart thermostats
Zone Controls, master – non-master
Mini-Split Ductless systems
Ducting, N-flex, Flex duct, High R’, Green Duct
Safety Overflow Controls, condensation safety systems
High Seer (20+), High AFUE(95.5+)
Quiet Blankets, Quiet Returns, Quiet Registers

Central heating systems can have humidifiers installed for easy breathingBeing a homeowner you will not know all of the advantages and disadvantages to all these components of a properly sized, properly matched and satisfaction guaranteed home air conditioning and heating comfort system.

That is what the pre-checklist is for. So that you can tell the HVAC service technician exactly what your needs and wants are and a hand crafted custom system can be matched to you and your home. Your home doesn’t care if it is comfortable or not so why would you let the size of your home determine the home comfort system you need? There is no such thing as a one size fits all heater and there is no such thing as a one size fits all air conditioner. You see my phones light up on the first hot week of the summer with all the newer home owners complaining that their brand new home won’t stay cool. The air conditioners were sized and installed for the home, not the homeowner, and many, a great many, are not happy with them.

Those questions are crucial so I am going to let you know why we need to have the answers to them to ensure that your system is perfect for you and your family.

(The picture is a humidifier that can be installed on a central furnace or central heating system. This helps to lessen the severity of allergy and asthma problems as well as dry chapped lips and itchy skin in the winter.)

1. Why do I want a new air conditioner, new heater? Give at least 3 answers.

Central air conditioning figts hot muggy weatherA great many people want an air conditioner because they are unhappy with their old air conditioner. Guess what? The majority of the time that they are unhappy with their old air conditioner is because it was installed incorrectly, the ducting is leaking horribly, and the Freon has never been charged correctly. Many times we can save the homeowner, maybe you in this case, many thousands of dollars by simply repairing their air conditioning and heating system and making run the way it should. Why 3 answers are needed? To make sure that the real reasons for replacement are taken into account so that if you do need an new air conditioner or a new heater, we are designing one that matched perfectly to your heating and air conditioning needs. We don’t want to make the same mistake as the last guy.

2. Where are the hot and cold spots in my home? (All homes have them)

This will help to pinpoint airflow problems quickly. We will spend all day at your home going over the system and will return later if you want, but most people want their free estimate for air conditioning or their free estimate for heating within about an hour and half. You are helping us out here and allowing us to solve your immediate problems. Many times homeowners don’t even know that they have airflow problems and they simple blame their old heating and air conditioning system for being uncomfortable. Your heating and air conditioning maybe running perfectly, but if the air doesn’t get to the right areas, how can it possibly be expected to work correctly?

3. How much money do I pay in my average summer electric bill? (July & August)

Poor central air conditioning can cause high electric billsThis goes directly to the money issue and how much your air conditioner is going to cost. When we start factoring in the costs of operation of the old system versus the new system and then work that into the investing price for the new system many people are very surprised. The efficiency of new air conditioners can often pay for the entire cost of the home improvement, just in utility savings. The new air conditioners are that efficient. The higher your electric bill, the higher SEER rating you should have. It is a wiser investment.

4. How much money do I pay in my average winter gas bill? (December & January)

Poor Central heating and old furnaces can cause high gas billsThis goes directly to the money issue and how much your central heater is going to cost. Factoring the utility savings with a new heater helps to offset the investment amount and the new heater, much more efficient, drops in relative expense. They are much more affordable than just the surface investment amount. This also lets us know if it in advantage to you, from a utility stand point, if ultra-high efficient heaters are for you or if a run of mill minimum efficiency heating system is better suited. It is your choice, but prior to making that choice you can benefit by having the proper accurate information upon which to make that choice.

5. Does noise bother me at night? Day? Is my existing A/C annoyingly noisy?

Usually we can guess this from the location, style, type and brand or equipment you currently have, but not always. The newer systems are quieter, but we can do a great number of things that will enhance the quiet by lowering the resonance and air noise of the outdoor unit. We can also adjust the airflow, number of registers, type of registers, location of dampers, type of ducting and length of ducting to lower airflow noise and equipment noise problems at the time of the new air conditioner and new furnace installation. Now is the time to address these issues as it is much less costly to solve them now, rather than later.

6. How much money am I willing to invest in an HVAC system?

Central heating and central air conditioning is an investment in comfortSooner or later every HVAC technician or salesperson is going to get to the money question. I have been doing this, helping people just like you, in homes just like yours for nearly 30 years. The vast majority of the time when I ask this question the homeowner backs away and says they don’t know. Everyone has a price in their head, a figure that they are willing to invest or an amount they think the new heating and air conditioning system is going to be. This question is for you, you don’t need to tell me, but you need to realize that a home’s new air conditioning and heating system is an investment and if your are anything like me, money is big part of that investment. I always want to make sure that I am spending the least amount of my hard earned money and getting the most for it, don’t you. Fill in this amount even if you don’t want to share it as this is a key step in being in control.

7. How much of a down payment do I have? (Answer even you don’t plan on financing.)

Many people get sticker shock when they are presented an investment amount for their new air conditioning and heating system. It seems like it is shock whether the amount is high or low. I had a homeowner in December 2009 tell me that she was absolutely convinced that she could have a forced air heater installed for $100.00 and told me she liked me and wanted me to perform the work for her for that $100.00. Yes, one hundred dollars. At least 50% of all the new home heaters and air conditioners that we installed are financed and most of the people signing up for the financing do not need financing. Most of the time financing your home improvement is just a wise financial move. It only takes a few minutes to get approval and the amount can usually be paid off without incurring any interest or finance charges whatsoever.

8. If I were to finance how much money could I invest each week for this system?
($30, $40, $50, more) _________________

Surprising question? It shouldn’t be as the new heating and air conditioning systems are so much more efficient than the older heating and air conditioning systems that the difference in utility bills may actually make your monthly investment amount for your altogether. This would mean that you can invest in a new home comfort furnace and new home comfort air conditioner, and perhaps an air cleaner, and be revenue neutral each month with little to nothing out of your pocket. It is a matter of math and utility bills. Most people choose $40.

9. When do I want the new system installed?

Install new air conditioners and new furnaces before the season is in full swingI am sometimes surprised by some homeowners. Hardly a month goes by that someone calls me out to their home for a free estimate for air conditioning or a free estimate for heating and I go and met them. We go through the entire process, asking questions, sizing, going over the math and then I ask them when they thinking about a new system installation and they respond with; “oh, we were thinking about installing the new system next year”. I don’t know what next year is going to bring. I don’t know what the cost of materials is going to be. In the last three years we have seen the cost of equipment double and this year labor went down, but in the previous two years labor was skyrocketing. New air conditioners and new heaters are made of metals, copper, steel and aluminum. These are commodities and they go up and down in the stock market on a regular basis. I can only keep the price quotes for up to a maximum of 30 days. Our prices are cut to bone for you and any increases in material prices will need to be reflected in the installation amount. There most likely will never be time when prices will be lower than right now. That is just a fact.

10. How much longer am I going to live in this home?
(2 years, 5 years, 7 years, 10 years, more)_______________________

Central air conditioning and central heating systems help to sell homesThe reason that I am asking you this question is because I want to match the system perfectly to your needs and wants. If you are going to move within the next 2 years I certainly want to help you with a system that will make you comfortable and happy in your home, but I am not going to recommend a super high efficient system as you will not have enough time to reap the benefits in relationship to the investment amount. It is all about making sure you get the most bang for your buck. Sure, when you sell your home you can typically recoup nearly all the amount that you invest in a new home heating and air conditioning system, but a regular home heating and air conditioning system is different from a super high efficient system with all the bells and whistles. Just like a car, when you start adding the extras, chrome trim, passenger heating controls, sunroof, bigger engine, etc. you add to the bottom line cost. My job is make sure that you get everything you need and everything you want and you get it for the least amount of money possible.

11. How much money have I spent on average to maintain my current system each year?
($100, $200, $300, $400, What’s maintenance?)

Whatever you have been spending to fix and repair your existing system should be added into the expense of that system. The reason are, that once you purchase a new heating system or new air conditioning system from us, and allow us to maintain it each year, you won’t pay a single penny in repair costs for the next 10 years. Most people tell me that they spend, on average, between $250 to $300 a year on repairs. Some years they don’t spend anything and other years they spend a lot. Those repairs, once we install your new heater and new air conditioner, are just extra money in your pocket.

12. What is the square footage of my home’s living area? Exclude the garage.

This just helps speed things along when we are sizing your new heating and air conditioning system. Don’t think for an instant that you need the same size as you currently have. Sizing an air conditioning is about taking into account the entire heat load for the home. This includes those plasma screen tvs that are heating up your bedroom and living room. Home now a higher A/C load than they used to, but the old system is typically oversized and costing too much to operate while not giving the maximum amount of comfort.

Things having been changing. Take for instance the size of your forced air heating system. If your system is 30 years old it most likely started off as 65% to 70% AFUE furnace. AFUE stands for annual fuel utilization efficiency. You gotta know that was written by a bureaucrat. What this means is that 30 years ago that 100,000 btu furnace (100 makes the math easier) was only putting out a maximum of 70,000 btus and the other 30,000 was going right up the furnace chimney. That is 100,000 time 0.70. It is probably nowhere near that efficient anymore, but we will run with that number. The newest high AFUE furnaces are 95.5% AFUE. So if you replace that old 100,000 btu 70% AFUE furnace with a new 100,000 btu 95.5% AFUE furnace you are now going to receive 95,500 btus in the home instead of the originally sized 70,000 btus. That means the new same size furnace is actually 36% larger than it needs to be. This can cause wild temperature fluctuations and high gas bills. We are here to provide you comfort, not uncomfort.

You have the questionnaire so please fill it out and give us a call at (877) 247-6426 and let help you by matching you up to the perfect furnace for you, your home and your family.

The 7 Steps to Picking a Heating and Air Conditioning Company.

Not all companies are created equal and care. You aren’t going to know if the slick salesperson that comes to your home or the proficient technician is looking out for your best interest. These people spend day after day dealing with people and many will only tell you what you want to hear in an attempt to sell you something without regard to whether or not you are going to benefit by it.
Since this is the case, you must be your own advocate and protect yourself. Certainly, the information that you have already discovered on this page and the other pages of this heating and air conditioning website put you very much closer to the driver’s seat, but you still need all the protection you can get. This is how to protect yourself.

1. Insist upon using only a licensed contractor.

The California Sate Contractors License Board governs these contractors and they govern them in your favor. If a company’s owner cannot get a State Contractor’s License, then they are either a convicted felon or they really don’t know what they are doing. There are three tests to become a contractor. The law test governing home improvement laws (Business and Professions Code), the 3 hour trade test (It took me 20 minutes to pass) and the open book asbestos exam. It isn’t difficult and it costs about $500.

2. Insist upon seeing that they have workers compensation insurance.

If one of their employees gets hurt on your property and they don’t have workers compensation you have to pay for damages, lost worker time and retraining. Injuries are serious thing and the insurance is expensive. The current rate for heating and air conditioning technicians is $23 per hundred of payroll. That means if I pay one of my technicians $1,000 a week to work for me I must pay $230 insurance each week. Many companies skirt the laws to your disadvantage illegally calling their workers “Independent Contractors”. This does not protect you.

3. Insist upon seeing General Liability Insurance.

General liability insurance is not required for heating and air conditioning contractors. Not having this type of insurance good leave you out in the cold if your heating system malfunction because of a act of omission by the heating and air conditioning company.

4. Insist upon a city permit for all work that requires a permit (furnace change out, new ducting, new condensing unit, etc.).

The city inspector works for you, not the contractor. It is his job to protect you from shoddy craftsmanship. The only that I know to skip the permit process is to skimp on materials and labor. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like paying full price for work that is only halfway done.

5. Do not give a down payment of more than 10% or $1,000, whichever is less.

That is the law. There is not a week that goes by that I don’t hear about a homeowner paying for heating and air conditioning work in advance and then the heating and air conditioning contractor, or alleged air conditioning and heating contractor, never showing back up to perform the work.

6. Insist upon Comfort Certification.

This is certification of continuing education. All of the Heating and air conditioning technicians here at The Empire Family of Services are Comfort Certified.

7. Don’t pay them in full until the job passes inspection.

Withhold 10% of the job amount until the job is inspected and passes city inspection. If the contractor is paid in full, why do they need make haste to fix any problems with your heating and air conditioning system?

The central furnace venting system nearly caused a fire

The furnace venting system in the photo above was installed improperly by an unlicensed contractor in the City of Anaheim. A permit was never pulled and the city inspector never saw this poor installation. We were called out to the job because the owner of the home couldn't locate the person that installed it. They were complaining of headaches and the smell of burning plastic.

The furnace suffered a crack in the firebox from overheating and the occupants of the home could have lost their lives. This home owner chose the wrong contractor to install their new central heating system.

Central heating and air conditioning ducting is critical to maintaining a comfortable indoor air environment

This is a picture of ducting performed in Fountain Valley. It was brand new at the time. The homeowner chose to use an unlicensed contractor. I called the person that installed on behalf of the homeowner and they were insisting that the ducting was installed correctly. The white portions are asbestos and the duct ending in the upper middle is fully open and blowing heated air into the attic. The upper left hand corner is the old blower assembly from the old furnace and was ducting wide open to a vent in the hallway. It was improperly being used as a whole house fan.

Choosing a heating and air conditioing contractor is simple. Just know what you are doing.

This ductwork for this forced air heating and air conditioning system was choking the air off so much that the evaporator coil was iced over and leaking water onto a floated oak floor. The work was done by an unlicensed and uninsured contractor. The homeowners insurance company refused to pay for the damages claiming it was negligence on the part of the homeowner. The handyman didn't have any insurance at all. The homeowner was stuck for over $22,000 in damages.

Anaheim air conditioning installation. Very poor job.

Need I even say anything?
