How to Get a Free Air Conditioner

Slice the catch phrase anyway you like: free air conditioning, cheap air conditioner, air conditioning almost for free, have an air conditioner that pays for itself, finally an A/C system that pays you back. Free, free, free, free ,free……….

Enough! Enough advertising overdrive  and enough false promises with nothing to back them up. While it is true that new conditioning will save you so much in operating costs that your system will be free over time, that is not a free air conditioner.



All Air Conditioning Companies Are Not Alike.

Number one air conditioning contractorYour central air conditioner is probably the most expensive appliance you’ll ever buy for your home (unless you opted for electronic refrigerator or 80 inch plasma).  And since you’ll be living with it for the next 10 to 20 years, it only makes sense to pick out a good one and avoid the nightmares.

According to the California State Energy Commission (confirmed in other State studies) the average air conditioning system is only meeting 57% of its rated efficiency and the average air conditioning output of new air conditioners in btus is less than 75% of their full rated output.

That means that a whole lot of people are paying more money to get less A/C cooling and running their new air conditioners longer hours for less comfort. Sometimes the facts really point out some serious flaws in our construction market and most of time those flaws are paid for by the consumers.

Are You That Consumer?

There are many reasons why a new air conditioning system will not perform the way the manufacturer designed it perform and almost all of those reasons are directly related to the type and quality of the installation by the air conditioning company. Here are the 5 most important things to know before you buy a new air conditioner.

Print this A/C checklist before you have a service technician come to your home

your new air conditioning will perform better if you know what to ask for1.  Waste not – want not.

A great many air conditioning systems are replaced because they have broken down. This doesn’t mean that they need to be replaced. Many can be fixed to run better than they ever did before and most repairs are relatively cheap. Many times a new conditioning system improperly installed can cost as much or more than the old A/C system to operate. Giving us a call now and setting up an appointment for free whole house air conditioning system evaluation is your first step in home A/C comfort and smaller utility payments each month. Save money by giving us a call at (877) 247-6426.

Air Conditioners don't have to cost alot of money2.  Your New A/C System…the money pit.

Your new air conditioner isn’t a boat and you shouldn’t have to keep throwing money in it to keep it afloat. Read the warranties and guarantees that come with your new system. Upon reading the nonexistent guarantees that most HVAC companies have in writing you’ll discover that many of those companies are not looking after your best interests. They end up nickel and dime-ing you to death after the sale and installation. Demand rock solid guarantees that put you in charge. Demand a written agreement that the HVAC company will protect your floors, tile and carpets, will thoroughly clean up after the installation and will give you a year to change your mind about the installation. Demand 10 years parts and labor on the A/C installation and make sure that guarantee covers the entire installation, not just the furnace and air conditioner like most air conditioner warranties.

air conditioning should be cool and dry not cold and clammy3.  Cold and clammy.

Just because your old A/C is a certain size doesn’t mean that your new A/C should be the same size air conditioning system. The majority of central air conditioners installed for homes are oversized by at least ½ ton. Air conditioners that are oversized by a ton or more put a chill in the air, but don’t remove the proper amount of water from the air. This leaves the home with a cold clammy feeling rather than a cool dry comfortable feeling. Too big an air conditioner is every bit as bad as too small an air conditioner. Call us at (877) 247-6426 and we can provide you with a free whole home central air conditioning evaluation that can provide you with valuable information to achieve the proper air conditioning climate system.

The best air conditioner will fail if not installed properly4.  Brand envy.

You’ve been inundated with big brand awareness campaigns for years. You’ve been subjected to massive advertising budgets advertising that XYZ company is the best on the planet and brand YZX is best. Here is a ‘little secret” the majority of the brands don’t want you to hear. American Standard has consistently outscored all the other brands in performance for longer than the last decade. It has shown that it breaks down the least number of times and, quite frankly, an air conditioning home comfort system that breaks down provides no comfort at all. But, brand isn’t the number one factor in the performance and operational health of your new air conditioner. Only about 20% of the total air conditioning performance you’re going to get is the result of the brand of air conditioning you choose. That’s right, only about one fifth of your new air conditioning system’s comfort is going to come from the air conditioning manufacturer. The other 80% of home comfort and A/C performance is a direct result of the training, certification and care provided by the air conditioning installer and the technician that sized and matched up that A/C system to your needs, your family’s needs and your home’s heating and cooling gains and losses.

High SEER air conditioners can save your nest egg5.  For you and your Family’s Protection. 

You must DEMAND a plain language written 100% Money Back Guarantee For Any Reason or No Reason at All. This is the only type of guarantee that is going to protect you from making a mistake in purchasing a new home air conditioning system. How do you know how your new heating system is going to perform in the sniffling, sneezing fall weather unless you have actually used your new air conditioning and heating system during that time? Don’t you have to actually use your new furnace and comfort controls during the cold, clammy dry itchy winter season to see if it does what was promised? Once your new air conditioning and air cleaning system survives through a allergy ridden spring season only then will it be seasoned and what about the hot and muggy summer season. Can you possibly know in advance that your new air conditioning system is going to work on the hottest of days when you haven’t subjected it to the test of the hottest of days? Your guarantees in plain English writing put you in charge. Give us a call for a free in home evaluation of your current heating and air conditioning problems and will let you know, we’ll let you know how comfortable your new air conditioner and new heater can be when you are in charge. Call now (877) 247-6426.

Let’s get back to that FREE Air Conditioning myth

Statement:      Your air conditioning is free because your utility bills will pay for it.

Is it true:  

The best way to prove this true or false is to actually do the math. If you have and older system, 8 to 10 years old or older, then your air conditioning system probably started out as a 10 SEER. Since all air conditioners tend to wear out as they are used they suffer performance losses each year of operation as do all mechanical appliances. Lack of maintenance causes even a greater loss of efficiency. This brings us to the seer rating of your older system. It is most likely no more than a 6 SEER…and that is probably giving it more credit than it’s worth.

SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (most people get it wrong by stating rating rather than ratio). The SEER rating is the Btu of cooling output during a typical cooling season day divided by the total amount of energy consumed in watts.  

SEER = BTU ÷ Watts

For example, a 60000 Btu air conditioning unit (5 Ton), with a SEER of 6, operating for a total of 1200 hours during an annual cooling season (Southern California average) would provide an annual total cooling output of:

60000 Btu × 1200 = 72,000,000 Btu of cooling on average during the year

With a SEER of 6, the annual electrical energy usage in watts would be about:

72,000,000 Btu ÷ 6 = 12,000,000 Watts (this is watts used for the entire year)

If the electrical rates per watt is $0.14 (Our structured rates enable it can go as high as $0.27) the amount of money sunk into utility bills for air conditioning is $1680 every year.
Using the same numbers we’ll calculate out projected air conditioning savings in electrical use:

6 ÷ New Seer × 1680 = predicted new bill

13 SEER = $775 for a yearly savings of $905
14 SEER = $720 for a yearly savings of $960
15 SEER = $672 for a yearly savings of $1008
18 SEER = $560 for a yearly savings of $1120
20 SEER = $504 for a yearly savings of $1176


So what does this really mean? If you currently swapped out your old 6 SEER air conditioner and replaced it with a new 20 SEER Ultimate air conditioning system over the next 10 years of A/C use you would save somewhere in the area of $11,760 in utility bills on just the outdoor unit. This is without the scheduled increases in electric rates.

What about air conditioning breakdowns? I think it’s safe to say that you will pay on average at least $200 a year in repairs for your existing old HVAC system? During some of the years you’ll spend nothing to maintain your old air conditioner and other years you may be spend a lot to keep that old beast of an air conditioner humming along. When air conditioners age, they breakdown more often. Your air conditioner savings comes in here because every system that we install comes with a free 10 years parts and labor guarantee that states just so long as we are allowed to maintain your unit each year we will not let you pay a single penny in repairs. This guarantee is in writing on your agreement in plain English. That means you save $200 a year for repairs for the next 10 years adding another $2,000 in savings?

So, yes, your new home comfort system, heating and air conditioning, will actually pay for itself and therefore your new air conditioner really is free.

Your air conditioning tune up is the first step in controlling the quality of your indoor air.

Is your air conditioning system capable of reducing or eliminating the three danger levels of indoor air pollution? Study and study has shown that the air inside the average home is upwards of 5 times more polluted than the air outside the home.

A good place to start down the road to clean air recovery is have the Empire Family of Services perform an air conditioning and heating tune up for you. You have three filters in your air conditioning system. The first filter is the filter inside the furnace or return air chamber. We clean that one during your air conditioning tune up. The second filter is inside the evaporator coil. The evaporator is wet the entire time the air conditioning is running. When dirt and debris make it past your first air conditioning filter they can become trapped on the moist sticky surface of the evaporator coil creating a breeding ground for indoor air pollution.

We’ll take of that with a thorough cleaning during your air conditioning tune up. The dirt and pollutants that make it past your second air filter, the indoor evaporator coil, pass through your ducting and into the airstream of the home where they can get caught in your third air filter, your lungs.
An A/C tune up helps to keep your lungs clean

Freon for air conditioning systems

R22 Freon is no longer used in new air conditioning systems. The newer Freon is R410a.

R410a is also named Puron by the Carrier corporation. It is the Freon of choice for all new residential air conditioning systems.

More care and therefore more training is needed when adding and charging Freon air conditioning systems with R410a. It is not as forgiving as R22. The pressure exerted in the system can exceed 500psi and if the Freon lines and Freon system is not properly cleaned of all contamination before charging the air, moisture and oils that can accumulate inside the air conditioning system can actually cause mini-explosions inside the copper lines carrying the Freon from the outdoor condensing unit to the indoor evaporator coil.

These explosions are not dangerous to you, at least physically, but they can and will cause a premature breakdown of the compressor and will also hamper the air conditioners ability to cool your home.
