AC Installations Fit for Mars or Merced

Ok maybe not Mars.

But there are a lot of huge decisions to make when you are considering installing a new AC or replacing your AC system. Cosmic Comfort aims to bring a new standard for air conditioner installations to Merced and the surrounding areas.

The most important day in the life of your air conditioner is the day it's installed. Hiring the right company to install your new ac unit can be the difference between a system that serves you well for many years and one that needs to be repaired or replaced after just a few.

We specialize in residential air conditioning system installations of all types such as:

  • Central Air Conditioning (Split systems)
  • Rooftop Package Systems
  • Heat Pumps
  • Condenser relocating
  • Ductwork
  • Ductless Mini Splits

We are experienced with many brands of equipment including: Bryant, Lennox, Trane, Carrier, Rheem, Goodman, American Standard, and many others!

When should you replace your AC?

If the AC in your Merced county home isn't working like it used to or it simply won't turn on, it's possible the proper maintenance or repair will have you good as new again. But at what point should you consider an air conditioner replacement instead of a repair? Our experts can help you make that call but in short here are some common scenarios that could point towards a new AC unit:

  • Your AC is over 10 years old and needs a major repair
  • Your unit uses R22 refrigerant and has a leak or compressor failure
  • The repair cost is 40-50% of what a new system costs
  • The energy savings + cost of a new system is lower than the repair cost and energy use of your existing system over the next 10 years

The best AC install starts with the best design

System size, ductwork, and airflow work hand in hand to give your home the best in comfort and cooling efficiency.

Properly sizing an HVAC system is specific to the climate you are in (such as the hot, dry climate in Merced, California) and requires an accurate Heat Load Calculation (also known as Manual J). This calculation takes into account the home's insulation, window size and type, shade, and more. It is not uncommon to install a different size system than the one being replaced as overall system efficiency affects size as well.

Once the proper system size is determined, we need to make sure your duct system is appropriately matched.  Poor airflow can literally kill your comfort and your air conditioning system.

Ducting that is too restrictive will make your new system work overtime, dramatically shortening its life.

Ducting that is not properly sealed and insulated hits you with a triple whammy:

  • You don't get the comfort your system was designed for
  • You pay extra utilities by inadvertently heating and cooling your attic
  • Dirt from the attic ends up in your house and AC system (which also shortens its life)
