4 Reasons To Choose A Central AC For Your Next Installation

If you’re shopping around for a new air conditioner, you probably already know that you have a wide variety of options. However, there is one in particular that is tried and true: the central air conditioner. In fact, there’s a high chance you already have one installed in your home.

Keep reading to learn more about why a central air conditioner is a great investment for your home if you are looking for an AC replacement. Then, give our team a call for air conditioning installation in Staten Island, NY. We are the experts in the area, and we would love to help you choose the perfect central air conditioner for your home and family.

Setup is Easy

Okay, setup isn’t totally easy. It’s actually really complicated, but since our team handles AC installations every single day, we could probably do it in our sleep. When you already have an existing central AC unit, replacing it with another similar unit is easy because all of the connections are already there. Even if we have to change out some wiring or replace old connectors with new ones, we still have a strong foundation to work from.

Save on Ductwork

Your central air conditioner blows air into your home through the ductwork. But ductwork can last twice as long, if not longer than an air conditioner. That means you can invest in a new central AC while using your existing ductwork, which is a huge savings. The other great thing about ductwork is that we can replace individual sections that are damaged or reseal your ductwork to keep it going for even longer. An assessment of your existing ductwork is part of the new AC installation process.


If you’ve made major changes to your home such as renovations and remodels, your existing air vents might not really meet your needs anymore. You might also have rooms that never seem to benefit from your HVAC system by always feeling too cold or hot. We can make adjustments during a central AC installation. We can modify the ductwork and relocate vents. Sure, it takes extra time. But it’s a change that can benefit you for years to come. 

Sometimes furniture placement can get in the way of air vents. When the vents were laid out in your home, the builder had no idea how or where you’d want to place your furniture. When furniture blocks airflow, your home cannot get as cool in the summer. Instead of rearranging your furniture, our team can relocate your air vents to better fit your needs. 

Save Money

A central AC unit is often much cheaper to install upfront compared to other air conditioning options. In fact, you have the potential to save thousands, and you could put some of that back into your air conditioner and invest in one that has a higher SEER2 rating with more energy efficiency. This in turn will save you money on your monthly energy bills.
