Making The Best Decision

When deciding to buy a new HVAC system for your home, it is more than simply finding a model that you like. It is basically a long term investment that will require you to live with your decision for many years, otherwise you will be spending twice as much – or more. Cousins Air is a professional service company that provides Air Conditioner Replacement in Palm Beach, FL. We also do new AC installs and are equipped to meet every HVAC service you may need.

If you know the basic types of HVAC units you will be better informed and know the advantages and disadvantages of each type of unit. There is always a lot to know about HVAC systems, so we have provided a general outline to help you take the next steps in buying your new HVAC system.

Types Of HVAC Systems

There are three basic types of HVAC systems, each designed with a specific purpose. For most homeowners, unless you live in an area where the temperatures do not drop below freezing (32 degrees) the heat pump systems are not a realistic option. However, if you do live in such an area give serious consideration to these all-purpose types of systems.

  • Package units are intended for homeowners and businesses that have limited space for HVAC systems.
  • Split systems are among the most commonly seen in residential areas, as you will see the condensing unit installed outside the home.
  • Heat pump systems were briefly discussed above.

There are a number of manufacturers and models to choose from, so be open minded about your choice. Changes in technology have improved both the price and efficiency of HVAC units, so doing your own homework will be well worth the time invested.

Evaluating Energy Efficiency And Other Points

Beyond the type of HVAC system, you will need to consider the energy efficiency of the unit. Higher efficiency ratings means greater savings to you over the long run. However, keep in mind that with greater efficiency comes a higher price tag. System with the Energy Star logo have the highest efficiency ratings and have met standards established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Other considerations are:

  • Sound levels generated by the system.
  • Accessories such as humidifiers/dehumidifiers that are needed.
  • Available warranties and extended warranties.

John - just wanted you to know about the installation of my new air conditioner yesterday. Your installers Alex & David showed up on time (a feat for contractors), removed my existing equipment, prepared the house for the new installation, and then installed the new equipment. They were efficient, personable (another feat for contractors) and completed the job on time (need I say more). I've been with Cousins through two houses over about 13 years and I've never been disappointed. So kudos to your firm and the people who you employ. I'd be remiss if i didn't comment about Joe...

Owners usually only hear from their customers when there is a complaint. However this is a “complement" about your company and some of your associates……….My wife,Theresa, and I, wanted to let you know your installation team of Kohrie, Alex, Rob, and Omar did an outstanding job installing our new air conditioners. They were professional, polite, neat and clean. It was a big job as far as we were concerned, with short notice and tight attic space, but they put me and my wife at ease immediately. When finished everything was neat and clean with the new air conditioners working [READ MORE]

We woke up Saturday morning and the house was hot. No air, no circulation via the fan . . . nada. Who passed the law that your a/c unit can only break during the hottest part of the summer AND on a weekend? As our previous a/c guy has now retired, we were at a loss as to who to contact. Fortunately, we have a good friend "in the business" (wholesale side) and he told us that Cousins was (by far) the people we wanted to deal with. A technician (Thomas) came out later that day (he called several times during the day to make sure we knew what [READ MORE]

I have nothing but good things to say about Cousins. We had so many problems with both our AC units in our new home and Cousins came to our rescue every time. We hired them after trying to get ******* (the company who installed the units to fix our AC). ******* gave us such a run-around, wrong information, and no call backs (even when Carrier called them on my behalf). We lost days without AC because of *******'s incompetence. Cousin’s was efficient, reliable and their techs knew their stuff. They came to fix my AC even before [READ MORE]

Thank you so very much for sending your team out to evaluate our broken air conditioning system.Furthermore, thank you for the thoughtful presentation of options for replacing the system.Three choices were explained, and after input based upon your many years of experience, we confidently selected the Carrier 17 SEER, 4 Ton, two-stage system. Installation was professionally done by two installers and two separate supervisors stopped by to make sure everything was installed correctly.So far so good, and so quiet. We will monitor [READ MORE]
