AC Installation in Austin, TX

Our Texas climate makes our air conditioners our hardest-working appliances. At some point, you’ll be faced with a difficult decision: whether to keep making repairs on your unit or invest in a new, more energy-efficient system. When looking for a company to give you honest advice on your AC installation, Austin homeowners choose the same company they have trusted for generations: ABC Home & Commercial Services.

Advances in technology mean that some new AC systems draw up to 40% less energy than models that were installed just a decade ago. Considering the fact that home cooling and heating costs represent almost half of your monthly utility bill, those savings can add up significantly over time.

Saving money also has another side benefit: a new AC is also better for the environment, because it requires less energy to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.

Lastly, a new system can improve your air quality, especially if you suffer from allergies. Because your AC relies on moisture to cool your indoor air, bacteria and fungi can grow inside, especially if there were any problems with how your unit was installed. These air quality issues, if left unaddressed, can lead to a host of other health problems.

The ABC Process

1. Contact ABC

When you contact us, we will schedule a service call to perform a diagnostic to determine whether you need a new system.

2. Perform Diagnostic

We'll test for air leaks, evaluate airflow, perform calculations to confirm your equipment size, inspect ductwork and confirm insulation levels.

3. Get Estimate

Based on what we learn during your diagnostic, we will generate an estimate that takes into account manufacturer and local rebates.

4. Installation

We’ll make sure your system is properly installed and provide you with a recommended maintenance schedule.

No homeowners look forward to getting a new central AC system. An experienced air conditioning contractor like ABC can help provide you with the information you need to decide whether to repair or replace your system.

If one or more of the following applies to you, it may be time to speak with one of our specialists about a replacement:

ABC’s licensed experts can advise you on what you would save with rebates and other incentives, both in the short and the long-term. You can then weigh those costs against the anticipated expenses associated with servicing an older unit to help you make the decision that’s best for your family.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which types of air conditioners do you install?

ABC has partnered with a trusted name in the business: Lennox. Lennox products offer homeowners the latest in energy efficiency, smart home integration and convenience.

As a Lennox Premier Dealer, ABC technicians undergo extensive training to learn how to design, install, service and maintain these superior home comfort systems. “Premier” status is only afforded to companies who meet or exceed customer expectations on a regular basis.

Can you repair and maintain my unit?

Absolutely! Our skilled technicians can resolve any problems you might encounter with any type of air conditioner and heater. In addition, we can provide you with routine maintenance to help your unit last longer, so you don’t have to worry about needing to invest in another unit—at least for another decade.

How long does it take to install a new air conditioner?

Once you decide what type of air conditioner you’d like to purchase, we can schedule your installation. Although each install is slightly different, we can usually get your new AC unit up and running in less than a day.

During installation, our technicians will:

  • Remove and safely dispose of your existing air conditioner.
  • Clear any debris that might interfere with putting in your new system.
  • Ensure that the concrete slab where the unit will rest is perfectly level.
  • Inspect all writing and refrigerant lines to confirm that they are up to code.
  • Install your new system and your new thermostat.
  • Confirm that all electrical components are right-sized for the new unit.
  • Turn on your new AC to make sure it can cool your home.
  • Provide you with an introduction to your new system so that you completely understand how to operate it when you need to adjust your home’s temperature.
  • Clean up any impacted areas so that your home is as clean or cleaner than how we found it.

A follow-up quality assurance visit will be scheduled several weeks after your installation to make sure your air conditioner is still fully functioning and to answer any additional questions you might have.

Does ABC provide warranties for AC installation services?

ABC offers a variety of air conditioners for purchase. Warranties vary from one model to another. Every piece of AC equipment we do install has a warranty, and many customers opt for extended warranties for the added protection, particularly for the small amount you have to pay.

“One of ABC's electricians, Joshua, did a fantastic job installing shop lighting (inside/outside), a few panels, and re-wiring multiple areas. As a small-business owner, I know how hard it is to find great workers. Josh and his team are exceptional, and ABC should keep a hold of him.”

“ABC Home & Commercial has been taking care of me and my house for over a decade. This review is for their Spring AC maintenance. They come out every year before the hot summer months arrive to make sure that my AC system will be up to the job. Randall checked everything: He conducted amp maintenance, checked the blower wheel & blower motor, checked all amps, pressures and temperatures, cleared the drain line, flushed, and primed the u-trap, checked the capacitors, contractors and safety components and washed the condenser. I would never do all that myself. Most people are lucky if they remember to put bleach (or white vinegar as Randall suggested instead) in their drain line occasionally. AC in Texas is one of those things that always goes out at the most inconvenient time. I think it's important to do my part to take care of one of the most expensive "appliances" in my home. ABC will be back in the fall to do the checkup on my heating system. A few years ago, they discovered that my heater would not have started the next time it was needed, and they were able to replace the part right then and there for a good price. The folks they send are always professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. I highly recommend ABC Home & Commercial!”
