Air Conditioning Installation & Replacement in San Diego, CA

What We Do

Is your AC unit over 15 years old? If so, it’s a good time to consider AC replacement. Most HVAC systems can provide 15 to 20 years of service. However, they tend to be less energy efficient as they age and break down more often. With a new AC, you can boost your home’s energy efficiency and keep your house at a nice and comfortable temperature day and night.

When it comes to professional air conditioning installation, going with a trustworthy company is always your best bet, and that is where we come in. After all, Bill Howe has provided legendary air conditioning replacement and installation service in San Diego for decades.

When determining the cost of air conditioning installation, several factors come into play, including the brand, type, home size, and type of warranty. Generally, if you own a larger home, you can expect to pay more for installation compared to someone with a smaller home. Prices typically start from $2,500 and up.

At Bill Howe, we understand that selecting the right air conditioning system can be a complex process. Many people who attempt to do it without industry help often end up making costly mistakes. That's why we offer our expertise to guide you through the process. We help you choose the exact equipment that will function optimally for your space, and we don't charge anything for this service. In addition to our free estimates, we also provide flexible financing options to make your installation as affordable as possible.

Professional AC installation typically takes about 4 to 8 hours. However, once it has been installed, we recommend waiting at least 24 hours before turning it on. That way, the AC unit can settle, and sealants or any adhesives used can fully dry and cure.

Yes, you can try to do the AC installation yourself, but it’s not recommended. Leave the work to a trained air conditioning installer and save yourself the headache and possible mistakes that can end up costing you more in the long run.

On average, ductless air conditioning installation can range from $3,000 to $10,000 or more. This cost typically includes the price of the equipment itself as well as labor costs for installation. However, it's essential to obtain a detailed quote from a qualified HVAC contractor who can assess your specific needs and provide an accurate estimate tailored to your situation. They can also advise you on the most suitable system for your home or space, ensuring optimal comfort and energy efficiency.
