Residential AC Installation Services in Hilliard, Ohio & Dublin, Ohio

As a general rule of thumb, your AC may be up for replacement if it’s been 10-15 years since it was installed.  And a heat pump will last about 15 years.  This, of course, varies depending on the efficiency of the unit and if it was sized correctly for your home, the manufacturer, how it was installed, how repairs were handled, and how consistently it was maintained (new filters, calibration, cleaning, etc.).

AC systems older than just a few years cost more to run, adding up to yearly expenses that might not make sense. Replacing your air conditioning system with a newer high-efficiency unit can reduce your monthly cooling bill by up to 50 percent. Your equipment will “pay for itself” fairly quickly.  Meanwhile, you’ll be enjoying better temperature control, a quieter running system, and finally, ideal indoor comfort. We’ll make sure you get an AC unit or heat pump with a S.E.E.R. rating and output that makes sense for the size of your home, so you’re not paying for energy you can’t use or feeling the heat for a lack of it.

4 Main Types of AC Units to Consider


If you’re needing a home cooling system and don’t have any ductwork running through the home, or if you don’t want to use ductwork, ductless systems are popular systems that you should consider.


Heat pumps are another type of split system. Instead of the usual binary AC and furnace system, heat pumps run in the winter and in the summer, providing comfort year-round. This outdoor unit looks a great deal like a central AC unit, in fact, people often mistake the two.


Packaged air conditioners are the combination of a heat pump and an electric air conditioner. Usually, packaged air conditioners sit on top of the roof of a commercial building or outside the home. They are popular for commercial application use because they have a small footprint and installation is flexible.


Split systems are the most common style of central AC systems in homes across the country. The term “split” is used because it has components both outside and inside the residence.

FAQ: AC Installation & Replacement 

How Long Will It Take to Install My New Central Air-Conditioning Unit?

Once you make the decision to install a new air conditioner or heat pump, we can generally remove the old system, install the new one, connect the electrical and ductwork, test and calibrate the controls, and have the new system going again in a single day.

Getting on our calendar is easy because we have a team of technicians that do this work all day, every day.  We show up first thing in the morning and don’t leave until the job is done.

Will They Leave A Big Mess?

Our HVAC technicians are conscientious about your home. We wear shoe covers when they are indoors.  Our trucks are stocked with drop cloths, coveralls (to work in dirty attics, basements and crawlspaces), brooms, dust pans, garbage bags, shop vacs… essentially everything needed to complete the job thoroughly and efficiently.

When we install a new central air system, we remove all the packaging, the old equipment, and any debris created by the job. You’re left with the new unit, instruction manuals, and a cool comfortable home.

We always perform a final walk-through on every job to ensure that we haven’t missed any loose ends.

What Type of Warranty Comes with My New Cooling System?

We offer a lifetime warranty on all our installations, in addition to any limited warranty provided with your equipment or extended warranty offered by the manufacturer. If something about our installation fails (i.e. we installed it poorly) you’re 100 percent covered.

Just call and let us know.

But we like call backs about as much as you do, that’s why we send only qualified technicians, inspect all of our work when we’re done, and do a final walk-through with you, our customer, making sure you’re 100 percent happy with the job.  But mistakes happen, parts fail, and there are “perfect storms” so if that’s the case, just let us know.  We give priority preference to warranty calls with our same-day scheduling, two-hour arrival windows, and 30-minute heads up when we’re on our way.  Click HERE to read more about our lifetime service warranty.
