OUR SERVICESAir Conditioning Installation

Your home comfort system is most likely the single biggest use of energy in your home. In fact, over a third of the energy used in the United States is used to heat and cool buildings. Having a properly designed and installed heating and air conditioning system will have the biggest impact on your energy costs.

As a homeowner, one of the toughest decisions you'll have to make about your air conditioner is when it's time to replace your old system for a new unit. Although a new air conditioner can be a big investment, so can the costs of continuing to repair and operate an old, inefficient unit.

Our Installation Process

Schedule Estimate
If you'd like a free estimate for a new residential or commercial AC system, please call us at 419-586-2348 or use our Request A Quote feature. We'll get you scheduled for a free onsite estimate with our experienced technician.
Onsite Visit
All of our free estimates require an onsite visit from one of our qualified technicians. Our goal is to understand any issues you may be having with the current system, such as hot/cold spots, as well as any other goals you may have for your new system, such as reducing energy consumption. We'll walk through your property with you to look at any specific areas of concern and to identify and show you any opportunities for improved comfort and efficiency. This includes inspecting your ductwork, which plays a critical role in your system's overall performance.
Equipment Options
Once we understand your property and your goals, we will customize replacement options to fit them. We'll discuss your options to help you select the one that will work best for you. We will match your needs and budget with the right system and help you get the most out of it by installing it properly. We work hard to earn and keep customers' trust, which means we'll only recommend work that's in your best interest. If you don't need a repair or replacement, we're not going to try to convince you that you do.
Once you've selected a replacement option, please contact us. We will make every effort to schedule your installation at a time that works best for you. Our goal is to make the process as convenient as possible for you.

The installation crew we send to your home will always be made up of full-time Lake Contracting employees, not subcontractors. The use of subcontractors can lead to a disconnect between the quality of work that is promised and the quality of work that is performed. Our crews are trained to provide clean, quality installations. They are held to high standards and consistently meet them.

So how are you supposed to know when it's time to replace your air conditioner?

Your air conditioner is more than 10 years old
In general, you can expect a well-maintained air conditioner to last about 10-15 years. However, if you're in need of expensive repairs and your air conditioner is more than 10+ years (and uses R-22 Freon) it will often make more sense to replace it. This is especially true when you consider the advancements in efficiency with AC systems in the past decade alone.
Your air conditioner uses R-22 Freon
The production of Freon was phased out by the federal government on January 1, 2020. This popular HCFC-22 (R-22) refrigerant can still be added to your AC system when needed but it is very costly. This cost of Freon along with the cost of repairs should help you make your decision. If your air conditioner uses Freon, you'll have to replace it eventually in order to switch over to the current R410A refrigerant.
You notice your air conditioner is inefficient
If your air conditioner has a low SEER rating, it can cost you a lot of money to operate. Currently, newly manufactured air conditioners must have a SEER rating of at least 13. If your air conditioner's SEER rating is below 13, you can cut back on your energy costs by replacing it with a new, more efficient unit. A new high-efficiency system can help you save up to 40% on cooling costs. Have a technician help you make that determination.
You're facing expensive repairs
Any time you're facing an expensive air conditioning system repair, you'll want to weigh the costs of the repair against the cost of a new unit. If the cost of the repair would cover a large part of a new system, and especially if your air conditioner is showing any of the other signs on this list, it will likely make more financial sense to replace it.
You've had frequent breakdowns
Another common indicator that your have AC troubles is temperatures around different areas of your home are different and inconsistent. This could be due to dirty air vents and filters or failing internal components.
Your home isn't as comfortable as it used to be
If you have a hard time keeping your home cool, this could be a sign of an aging air conditioner or even an incorrectly sized system. Your home's air conditioner is supposed to remove humidity from the air because humidity makes the space more uncomfortable. When it functions properly, the unit will maintain consistent temperatures throughout the house. When the cooling portion of your HVAC system isn't able to do these things, either your equipment is malfunctioning or there are issues with your ductwork.
