Pricing Your Homes Central Air Conditioner.

We are into late May and the heat of the summer season is starting to descend upon southern Ontario and the greater Toronto area. If you are looking for an air conditioner to cool your home this summer but unsure of the costs then we hope to break it down to help you better understand where your money goes. Central Air Costs First off replacing a central air conditioner is usually cheaper than if you have never had one.  The reason for the price discrepancy is due to the extra time and work needed to modify your duct and venting system above your furnace.  An A-coil has to be installed to allow your homes warm air to flow through the chilled coil ultimately cooling the interior of your home. Free Quotes Okay, more importantly what is it going to cost? Just for a small warning I won’t go into specific numbers because each home is different. I have in the past quoted specific numbers only to have a customer reference what I had written, albeit he was in completely different situation and stubbornly refused to listen as to why the prices were different. Thus pricing in this article is simply for example only, I would be more than happy to answer any question you have and give you exact pricing for your home, simply give me a call (647) 925-1930. When installing a new air conditioner two of our technicians will come out to your home with a brand new system that was properly sized and selected by you the home owner during the initial pre consultation.  The price of your central air system will be completely determined by the size, efficiency, and brand that you select.  You can expect somewhere from $700 to over $5000 for a just the air conditioning unit alone. Included in the Installation Our installation includes the A coil, condensation collection systems, charging the lines with coolant, as well as all the labour needed to run the new copper coolant lines and even removal of your old system and all components. Our installation fee can range from around $200 to well over $1000 if your home needs multiple air conditioners. It’s incredible difficult to...

Reliance Air Conditioner Prices

Reliance Air Conditioner Prices

The Reliance air conditioner side of the company is quite large.  In fact Reliance is probably one of the few recognizable names for HVAC equipment in Ontario. There are some pros and cons associated with being one of the biggest players and we’re here to discuss. First off give us a call (647) 925-1930 or fill out our contact form and we will give you a free quote, at least you have a comparison now. The Reliance air conditioner part of the business can rent, finance, or sell you a unit just the same as we can. Reliance uses air conditioners manufactured by Carrier, Amana, and Goodman.  This is similar to us but we also have Lennox systems. The problem is that Reliance is a large company with a lot of overhead, yes they buy a lot of air conditioners and probably get them a bit cheaper than we would due to volume, but maybe they push them out to homes where they aren’t a great fit. Maybe we pay a little more and don’t get bulk discounts but we always order the exact model and size your home needs. I don’t know if Reliance has bad customer service but it’s possible our smaller sized company has a better chance of treating customer better and more efficiently.  Like I said earlier, give us a call and give Reliance a call, get two quotes and choose the company that you feel the most comfortable with.  Don’t forget that by comparing quotes you can know for sure you’re not being “ripped off”. We are confident in our prices and our staff, so don’t just stop at Reliance Air conditioners, call and get quotes from other HVAC companies as...

Charge Air Conditioner Lines

Charge Air Conditioner Lines

Usually most people have a friend of a friend or a connection with someone somewhere where they can get a central air conditioner at a great deal. This has become quite common and we often lose a sale if someone has a connection somewhere. In all honesty I don’t blame home owners; I would take a better deal if I could get one somewhere else as well. Maybe its not the exact same central air system, maybe it’s a better one but a connection can sometimes bring in a great deal. The thing is central air conditioners can only be installed using specialized equipment. The copper lines running from the AC, through the wall, and into the A coil in your furnace have to be filled with a specialized refrigerant and pumped up to a specified pressure. Ones the correct pressure has been attained within the lines the lines are then brazed closed so they can never leak. So you very well may get a great deal on your central air but you will be on the search for an AC company that will come out and charge air conditioner lines and I can tell you it is not a priority for most companies. If you found us looking for a company to charge your air conditioner in the Southern Ontario area then you have stumbled upon the right place. We do charge air conditioner lines for central air conditioner systems. In fact we have actually hired a dedicated technician for this very job as we receive so many requests. So go ahead and get that central air at a great price through your connection knowing we can come out and charge your air conditioner lines in a timely manner. I wish we could put the price up online but size, brand, and system can change costs enough to potentially mislead clients. Give us a call with your new air conditioners details and we can give you an exact cost within a few minutes over the phone.   Call Us Anytime — (647) 925...

What Does It Cost To Run Your Air Conditioner In Toronto

What Does It Cost To Run Your Air Conditioner In Toronto

Are you interested in seeing how much it will cost to run your air conditioner in the Greater Toronto Area.  We took some time to break down the costs associated with some different sized and efficiency air conditioners. Electricity Costs Sure the hydro companies say we have comparable electricity prices within Ontario at around 8 cents per kilowatt hour but they don’t take into account all the extras we pay on top of that. To get a true cost we have taken the most recent electrical bill here from the office added all the fees up and divided by the kWh. Electricty: 405 kWh @ 8.3 cents = $33.62 Delivery Charge: $47.03 Regulatory Charges: $2.71 Debt Retirement Charge: $2.84 HST: $11.21 Total: $97.41 Clean Energy Benefit (10%off):  $9.74 One Month Bill Total  —  $87.67 Now taking the bill total and dividing it with the kWh used give us $87.67 / 405kWh = .216 or 21.6 cents per kWh Electrical Cost To Run Your Air Conditioner   AC Size AC SEER Cost @ 8 Hours Cost @ 12 Hours 1 Ton 7 (1970’s) $88.87/Month $133.30/Month 9 (1990’s) $69.12/Month $103.68/Month 11 (2000’s) $56.55/Month $84.83/Month 15 (current) $41.47/Month $62.21/Month 1.5 Ton 7 (1970’s) $133.30/Month $199.95/Month 9 (1990’s) $103.68/Month $155.52/Month 11 (2000’s) $84.83/Month $127.24/Month 15 (current) $62.21/Month $93.91/Month 2.0 Ton 7 (1970’s) $177.74/Month $266.61/Month 9 (1990’s) $138.24/Month $207.36/Month 11 (2000’s) $113.11/Month $169.66/Month 15 (current) $82.94/Month $124.42/Month 2.5 Ton 7 (1970’s) $222.17/Month $333.26/Month 9 (1990’s) $172.80/Month $259.20/Month 11 (2000’s) $141.38/Month $212.07/Month 15 (current) $103.68/Month $155.52/Month 3.0 Ton 7 (1970’s) $266.61/Month $399.91/Month 9 (1990’s) $207.36/Month $311.04/Month 11 (2000’s) $169.66/Month $254.49/Month 15 (current) $124.42/Month $186.62/Month A properly sized air conditioner should run nearly continuously during a hot summer day.  On average most homes will require the AC to run for 6-12 hours. Results When using the true costs of electricity it’s easy to make the case for upgrading to a more efficient air conditioner.  Simply upgrading to a SEER 15 central air can reduce your hydro costs associated with your AC by 50%.  Also a SEER 15 AC is a lower end system, we have air conditioners with up to 24 SEER . Location The GTA is quite large and temperatures can be significantly different between...

How To Get A Deal On A New Central Air Conditioner

How To Get A Deal On A New Central Air Conditioner

This should be an interesting post as I am offering up ways for people to spend less and get a deal on a new central air system which ultimately reduces my bottom line… I’m sure a lot of people interested in a new central air conditioner in the Greater Toronto Area are going to do some research regarding installation companies.  I completely respect that and in fact would do the exact same thing.  But, to get a great deal on an air conditioner doing some research is a great idea.  There are definitely some companies within Toronto and surrounding areas that are more than willing to take advantage of home owners. Here’s how you can protect yourself. Steps To Get A Deal Get multiple quotes (I’m thinking at least 3) Negotiate (there is always a little bit wiggle room but be realistic) Apply for all applicable grants and rebates Package multiple systems. Call me In depth Steps On Making Your Air Conditioner Deal Quotes –  You should definitely be looking at  at least 3 quotes from competitors.  Make sure that you really look at the models they are offering and compare apples to apples.  I would never take the lowest quote, simply throw that one away, you’re almost guaranteed a bad install as the contractor will cut corners in order to make money off the sale. Negotiate – A new central air conditioner may cost between 2 and 5 thousand dollars and the market is highly competitive.  100% truth here, the margins on these systems have dropped significantly over the last 10 years.  We used to make 7 or 8 hundred dollars on a sale but now we are lucky to be netting 50 to 100 dollars in profit.  If you are able to knock a 100$ off your new central air quote consider yourself a great bargainer. Grants and Rebates – This probably where most homeowners will make the best inroads when looking to drop the price.  If your contractor isn’t offering or educating you on available air conditioner rebates then its time to move on.  I’m not going to offer any numbers as the rebates change every so often, roughly 250 to 500 dollars is possible.
