Custom Installation Options

If you’re considering converting to refrigerated air conditioning you should know all your options.  Many people consider converting to refrigerated air when their swamp cooler just doesn’t cut it anymore. However, refrigerated air isn’t the only option you have when upgrading your air conditioner. TLC has many solutions to help improve your swamp cooler if refrigerated air isn’t an option for you or doesn’t make sense for your home and needs. TLC’s experts can recommend other solutions like the following:

Mastercool Coolers

Mastercool swamp coolers are a step up from standard swamp coolers. If you need to replace your existing swamp cooler TLC’s experts are experienced in standard cooler installations and upgrades. Mastercool swamp coolers offer a better cooling ability than standard coolers.

Breezair Cooler

If Mastercool coolers are a good option to upgrade your standard cooler from, then Breezair is the best option you can upgrade to without converting to refrigerated air. Breezair offers superior cooling capacity and a variable speed motor to maximize your comfort control. Breezair coolers offer cooling temperatures close to refrigerated air options. Ask our technicians about this cooling option today.

Ductless Mini Split Systems

Ductless air conditioners are growing in popularity for their energy efficiency and cooling effectiveness. We’ve seen a surge in areas like Santa Fe, where many homes were built without ductwork making central air conditioning not a feasible option. With ductless you are able to cool individual rooms or areas of your home maximizing energy efficiency. Mini splits can also be added as a supplemental cooling comfort for homes that have renovations or additions. While ductless is an excellent cooling option for whole home or partial cooling the installation costs are more than refrigerated air. Ask one of our professionals for more information about ductless systems.

Air Conditioning Installation Process

We want you to be familiar with the installation process so that you can have a clear idea of what is involved and know your options.

Converting to Air Conditioning

When you convert to central air conditioning there are some additional upgrades you should be aware of that is usually part of the cost to convert. Aside from removing the swamp cooler(s) and installing the condenser and replacing the furnace(s) there may be some additional modifications required. These should be accounted for in the estimate and you should ask your HVAC professional about these factors when you receive an estimate. These factors include:

  • Ductwork modifications – There are likely ductwork modifications needed in order to accomodate the airflow for the air conditioner. If you don’t make modifications you won’t be able to adequately cool your home.
  • Electrical Upgrades – Homes older than 10-15 years ago may not have adequate electrical service to support the electrical requirements for air conditioning. Older homes electrical limit was 60amps. However, today with all the smart technology, TVs, computers and air conditioning systems require approximately 200amps. In order to install an air conditioner it may be necessary to upgrade your electrical panel to support the electrical needs. TLC has licensed electricians on staff so there is no lag time when we install your new air conditioning system. Unlike other companies that may have to outsource this service.

Installing ductless air conditioners does require installing wall mounted air handlers in rooms and areas in your home. These air handlers are typically installed on a exterior wall and attached to the condenser outside. Mitsubishi and Fujitsu are leading manufacturers of these type of units. They have made significant design improvements over the years to provide a sleek looking wall mount. TLC’s expert technicians stay up-to-date on the latest technological advancements in this area so we can bring you the best options for your home.
