Commercial and Residential Heating & AirConditioning Installation
Relocating from Brooklyn, New York to Austin, Texas was a ginormous change for Cynthia and Todd. But it was what they wanted as they began their new life together as husband and wife. The East coast was full of familiarities because it was all they knew. Texas promised adventure in unchartered territories. Needless to say, the dry heat in Austin threw them for a loop. While the couple appreciated our mild winters, the hot summers left them sweating and gasping for air. They contacted Austin Premier Heating and Air Conditioning to install central air in their 1950s rambler style home.
Commercial and Residential Installation
From the outside looking in, it seemed that Cynthia and Todd led a charmed life. Todd was a graphic designer with a small office downtown. Cynthia was a YouTube vlogger and Instagram influencer. She worked from home at her leisure. We installed an energy efficient central air system in their home. This system kept their entire home cool during the hottest days. Even their dog was able to seek relief. Due to the size of Todd’s office and restrictions in his leasing agreement, we installed a ductless air conditioning system. Todd and his staff of 3 were over the moon with the upgrade.

Quality isn’t always synonymous with price. As the saying goes, ‘you get what you pay for’, with HVAC systems, there are ways to get more for what you pay for.

It’s difficult to put a finger on HVAC system costs sight unseen. The minimal cost for a new installation is roughly $1000. Cynthia and Todd’s residential system was installed for $2000. This included parts and labor. Todd’s office system was installed at a cost of $1005, including equipment and labor. Will the customer be home most of the day? Is there an around the clock staff? What part of the property will be utilized the most? What is the square footage of the property at issue? When determining the estimate, square footage, proposed usage and body occupancies are contributing factors.
What many people don’t realize is that installing HVAC systems is very labor intensive. Many homes and offices in Austin were constructed in the 1920s through the 1970s. During that period central air was either not in existence or not very common. HVAC technicians must make a way out of no way. This involves creating access points through brick, wood, vinyl and aluminum siding and foundations. The product specialist will evaluate your property to determine the amount of labor required. If a particular project requires less time than expected, we are sure to make the adjustment on your bill.
