5 Questions to Ask During Your A/C Estimate

Having an estimate done for a central air conditioning system is sure to spark a lot of questions in your mind.  Some of them are going to be very clear-cut like, “What is the cost of the system?” and “How long is it going to take to install?”  But, you want to think about questions to ask during the A/C estimate.  The more information you get from air conditioning companies Jacksonville as they’re pricing out your system, the better a decision you’ll be able to make.


What is the Proper Size of the Unit?

One of the best questions to ask all of the air conditioning companies Jacksonville that come out will be about proper sizing of the unit. What’s the right size or capacity of an air conditioning system that you need?  If you go with an individual-sized system, how will it do to cool your home? Will it be able to accomplish everything you would expect it to? Professionals like us use calculations to figure this out and nail the sizing.


The Extent of Ductwork Installation Needed

You may already have air ducts in your home that are used for a forced hot air heating system. Are those going to suffice for when you go to add central air conditioning? You may have to go a step beyond what you have, perhaps by insulating the existing ducts to be able to use them for the central air conditioning system. We can work with you to help make this determination.


Brand Offerings

What are the brands offered to you by the different air conditioning companies Jacksonville that you bring in?  You may want to go with more of a name brand or try and save on costs with a more generic brand. It’s up to you as to the way in which you want to go, but the name brands are traditionally a bit more trustworthy.


How Are Payment Terms Handled?

Do you have options when it comes to being able to pay for the central air conditioning system? Do you have to pay for the entire thing up front or do you have the ability to spread out the payments over a series of months? Some companies will offer favorable payment terms to assist.


Does the System Come With a Warranty?

Does the air conditioning system you’re buying come with a warranty included? If something were to go wrong, will one of the air conditioning companies Jacksonville that you hire be ready to assist you and come to repair everything?  


There are a lot of good questions you can ask when it comes to air conditioning companies Jacksonville that give you an estimate.  Estimates are just that: quotes of what the job will cost.  Be sure you ask for more than the price and installation timing so that you know you’re getting the right team to handle your installation!

I will be recommending J&W to my friends and family. They were very professional and on time. Did a very well job in... a quality manner. Dustin, Mark, and Robert. Worked very well together and was in and out with no cleanup for me to do. Thanks so much for getting my home back to a cool environment.read more

Just had an entirely new, full HVAC install done at our old house in Riverside, which was a fairly big job. Brian and... Will did the installation, and were awesome. There was going to be issues leveling the air handler in the attic, so they moved it to a new spot and hung it instead, getting new parts/changing the plan on the fly. We're much happier with this new setup and location of the air handler. I really appreciated this, their professionalism/thoroughness, and flexibility. Brian and Will worked super-hard, and double-checked everything once the job was done. Would use this company again.read more

Two installers here early this morning. Worked all day. Very professional, extremely well mannered and quick to answer... all my questions. They are Dustin and Robert. Both men went above just installing my new unit, they were personable and knowledgeable in what they were doing. I was surprised when I found out these two hadn't been working that long together. They worked extremely well together. I highly recommend this two men.read more

A snake crawled into my outdoor condenser and stopped my 16 year old Trane last week on Thursday. The power surge took... out my blower unit circuit board and the motor. I called J&W and Rob was over within two hours of my call. I was spec'd a new York 17 seer system and it was up and running on Monday. Technicians Jason and Brian arrived promptly and every facet of the installation was thorough. When completed, I would not of even known they were there except they left my garage cleaner! Thanks J&W!read more
