Providing New Air Conditioners in Austin, TX & Surrounding Areas

Is your air conditioning acting up? No problem! At Daniel’s Plumbing & Air Conditioning, we take pride in getting the job done right the first time, meaning you’ll have fresh, cool air all summer long.

Whether you need an AC unit installed, air conditioner repairs, or aren’t sure what you need, our expert service technicians will find and solve the problem in no time.

Do You Need AC Repairs or Replacement?

Regular air conditioning maintenance can lengthen your AC’s lifespan, but, even with the best care, it may be time to replace your AC if you suspect it isn’t working properly.

Be sure to give us a call if:

  • The air conditioner is over 10 years old and struggling
  • The air conditioner is making strange noises
  • Utility bills are increasing every month
  • Water is leaking inside your home
  • Your AC system is icing up and freezing
  • Your AC system has been down multiple times in the last 12 months
  • Cooling is uneven — some rooms are too cold, other rooms are too warm
  • The indoor air temperature doesn’t match the thermostat setting
  • The HVAC unit is not blowing cold air
  • Your air conditioning uses R-22 freon (which is being phased out)

If you’re having trouble with your air conditioner, our technicians will look at all the possible causes. In fact, you may simply need professional duct cleaning to help improve the airflow in your home or business, rather than more expensive solutions.

Still, there comes a time when your AC just can’t cut it anymore. Trying to keep your air conditioner past its lifespan can mean more frequent repairs and maintenance, not to mention the slow decline of efficiency as it ages.

Luckily, there are plenty of modern HVAC systems to choose from, and our technicians can help you find the best unit to fit your specific needs.

Choosing an Air Conditioner

Choosing an air conditioner or HVAC system can be daunting. While you probably use your AC every day, you likely don’t need to put much thought into the system itself — which is a good thing! Your job is to enjoy the AC, and ours is to know the ins and outs of every HVAC system we install.

While we’re more than happy to recommend an air conditioner for your home or business, we also like to take the time to explain the process to our clients.

If you’re looking to research an AC unit on your own, there are a few things to consider:

  • Size: The square-footage of whatever area you’re trying to cool will be the easiest way to eliminate a few types of AC unit. Are you trying to cool off your garage or air condition an entire business? A typical home AC ranges from about 1.5-ton to 5-ton units, depending on the size of the home.
  • Type of unit or system: Air conditioners come in a variety of sizes and with different types of systems, ranging from central air conditioning, ductless, window units, portable units, hybrids, and geothermal. Chances are your home or business is already set up to support one system or another. It’s also important to know whether you have a combined HVAC system or separate heater or furnace.
  • Budget: A small window unit may be the cheapest option, but it’s certainly not the most cost-effective if you’re looking to cool a whole home or business. Larger units or HVAC systems can be more expensive, but they’ll also last longer and be more energy efficient — which can end up saving you money in the long run.

Expert AC Installation

Once we’ve recommended the right AC unit, we make sure the job is done right. Air conditioners have to be properly installed to make sure they last a long time, so we take care to ensure everything is installed correctly. When we’re done, we clean up after ourselves — the only thing you’re left with is cool air.

Reasons You Need a New AC

In Austin, an air conditioner is a homeowner’s best friend. It’s impossible to survive the summers without one, and you’ll likely need to kick it on for a few days in the middle of winter, too.

But with all the work your AC does, it often can’t last as long as some other appliances — and in most cases, it shouldn’t. 

Here are the most common reasons you should consider new air conditioner installation now, rather than an AC tune-up:

You Constantly Need AC Repair

At Daniel’s Plumbing & Air Conditioning, we take pride in providing high-quality AC repair services for any type of break or malfunction in your unit. However, even the best AC techs can only do so much for a worn-out machine. If you’re constantly having to replace or repair parts, your air conditioner is likely on its last leg.

We typically recommend following the $5,000 rule. If you multiply the age of the system with the cost of the repair and it exceeds $5,000, it’s going to be more cost-effective in the long run to get a new unit altogether. Replacing your AC system is a big project with a daunting associated cost for many, but if it’s time to tackle that project, check out our financing options to make the switch more affordable!

Your AC Uses Freon or R-22 Refrigerant

This is a big one, as air conditioning units that still use R-22 refrigerant will be completely phased out of the market by the end of 2020, and with good reason. If your air conditioner is old enough to be using freon, chances are that it’s not nearly as efficient and cost-effective as newer models. While the upfront cost may be higher, a new AC can end up saving you a lot of money compared to an older unit.

If you’re not sure if your old unit uses this freon, take a picture of your AC’s label and send it to us. We’re happy to help identify if you are in need of a new unit. 

You Want the Newest Features & Tech

Air conditioning technology has come a long way in the past few years, and you’ll be amazed by how much of a difference it can make in your life and energy bill.

We can help advise you on new models that offer the best seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER), which means that you’ll spend less on cooling your home in the hot summer months. Newer models are able to cool your home much more quickly and efficiently than older models, so you don’t have to wait around for your old AC to sputter to life.

Plus, there are a variety of convenience features available on different models, including Bluetooth integration, smart cooling, and so much more. 

You’ve Renovated Recently

Your HVAC system is very carefully designed to suit your home, but renovations can change the airflow and layout and fill your system with dust. If you’ve only done some minor changes, a simple air duct cleaning may be enough to get your system back on track.

If you’ve added rooms, torn down walls, or extended the living space, your AC may have trouble cooling the new floorplan or may cool your home unevenly. 

Be sure to contact us for a consultation. We’ll walk you through the best options to efficiently and effectively cool your home.
