Free Estimates Harrah Okla
What does it mean to receive a free estimate or quote on heating and cooling equipment replacement?
It means that you should expect a person or a representative from the HVAC Contracting business, offering the free estimate, to come to your home or business and review your existing Heating or Cooling Equipment set-up. take measurements and pictures, ask questions about previous comfort issues or concerns, review duct work condition, review insulation values in the attic and else where, review window condition and age, and perform at least simple load calculation to determine the capacity of the new system, and then and only then offer a detailed free estimate for the cost of the equipment and labor to install it.
The estimate should be detailed with equipment model #’s and energy efficiency rating, include manufacturers website for product features and benefits for comparison, warranty time frames and conditions for equipment, detailed list of accessories and supplies that will be included in the system installation, detailed labor information that will include labor warranty time frames. And a clear and understandable Total Dollar Amount for the entire Heating and Cooling System.
And to be this detailed with the Free Estimate the Contractor or person representing the Contractor should offer to email you a copy or give you a copy in person only after all these steps have been followed.
Buying decisions “Do’s” to keep in mind:
Do not make a rash or hurried decision. This can happen quite often if the summer heat or winter cold is bearing down on your decision and your comfort level. Find ways to overcome the temporary state of being without heat or cooling.
Do ask for a copy of all estimates or contracts, with signatures and specific dates.
Do ask for financing options, every quality contractor will have a source for financing. You may not qualify or like the terms, but at least ask.
Do ask for specific time frames for the installation to be completed.
Do expect your HVAC Contractor to register your Heating and Cooling Equipment warranty. Expect the contractor to forward you a copy of the registration via email or regular mail once the installation is complete.
Do not pay down 50% up front for the system to be installed, if the contractor needs money to buy equipment or supplies, you have the wrong contractor.
Do expect all of this and more when you request a Free Estimate or Quote from A.I.R. Plus. Call or Text us today at 405-618-2247 for a detailed estimate or visit our website at AIROKC.com.
As you can see from these pictures there are two different air flow issues that could be causing your discomfort in your home or business.
The supply plenum supplies the conditioned air to your duct work that distributes the air into the living space or work space. If it is losing that cooled or heated conditioned air into the attic the system will never perform up to it’s ability.
The return plenum pulls the conditioned air back into your heating or cooling system to be reconditioned to the desired temperature you have set at the thermostat. If the return air is pulling in unconditioned air from the attic it will never be able to perform during extreme outdoor weather.
So have your heating and cooling system inspected every season to insure your system is not trying to do something it can’t do. Heat and or Cool outdoor air!
Your system will thank you and your pocket book will thank you for the lower utility bills and most of all for your improved COMFORT!

The cost for a new a/c unit or system can be very complex. In fact there is not a simple straight forward answer without some detailed information gathered at your home or business.
For example: You have may have a 5-year old complete heating and cooling system and it just went out of factory part warranty coverage and your indoor equipment (furnace and evaporator coil) are in good shape and have more life in them. You may not need to purchase the entire system, just the outdoor a/c condensing unit is all you need. Especially if it operates on the newer 410A refrigerant. So all you need is an estimate for the outdoor equipment and this may save you thousands of dollars in replacement cost.
Another example: You have a 11 year old complete system, operating on R22 refrigerant (R22 is the old refrigerant that is being deleted by the year 2020) and you find out you have a leak in the evaporator coil and the compressor is weak on the outdoor unit when it runs! But the system is a heat pump system set-up on dual fuel (gas furnace inside instead of an air handler) and the furnace has hardly been used because the heat pump has been used for all the heating for your home or business. The furnace may be of value for another 10-years if it is in good shape, which means you may only need to replace the evaporator coil and the outdoor unit -heat pump.
Last example, but here are many I could use: You have a 20-year old complete heating and cooling system and you have had a major failure with the outdoor condensing unit, the compressor has failed and needs to be replaced. The evaporator coil holds a charge but it looks like it is about to fail any minute and the air handler looks like it has been standing in water with all the rust you can see from the outside and inside! It’s time! Time to replace all the equipment and get a new 10-year factory part warranty on a new complete system – indoor and outdoor equipment.
