Although there are a number of benefits that come hand in hand with installing an AC unit in your residential or commercial property, there are also costs involved in operating your unit.

With this in mind, it’s important that you ask the right questions when you’re updating or installing a brand new AC system. This will ensure that you find an air conditioning unit that meets your exact needs, requirements and budget – ultimately saving you time and money.

We’ve created a helpful guide outlining some of the things you should be asking when getting your survey done.

What size system to I need? 

This will depend on the size of your residential or commercial property, and it will be up to the qualified professional you use to determine the type and size you need.

Cover your back 

Before you agree to the installation of your new system, make sure you ask the company you are dealing with whether they are bonded and insured, whether they are happy to provide the estimate they have given you in writing and whether you will receive a printed copy of your terms and agreements.

Is there an energy efficient system available?

Thanks to advances in technology, many of today’s air conditioning systems are now energy efficient, meaning they are great for helping to decrease your utility bills. So, make sure you ask if there is a system available that meets your needs.

Payment terms and guarantee 

Again, it’s important that you get all of the facts before agreeing to the installation of your new system. So make sure you ask about payment terms and what kind of guarantee comes with your unit. It’s also important to ask whether or not an air conditioning maintenance service is offered as the last thing you want is for your AC unit to break down and leave you out of pocket.
