Ideas & Inspiration from Sacramento HVAC & Air Conditioning Contractors

Sacramento Air Conditioning

Though folks in other areas of the country might imagine all of California as constantly sunny with 70 degree temperatures every day, people in the Sacramento Valley know that this is not exactly the case. When it comes to air conditioning, Sacramento is a city where few homeowners are willing to deprive themselves. Of course, air conditioning is not always a necessity; but in places where summer comes calling months before it does in other areas of the country, a good A/C system is more than just a "luxury" item. Since air conditioners are likely to get a workout for a significant portion of the year, when it comes time to replace or install one, you want to make sure that it will be efficient as well as effective. This not only ensures you have a more comfortable place to come home to, but also a system that doesn't drain your wallet while it cools your house.

Options for Air Conditioning

While California homeowners can find the same types of A/C units as everyone else in the country, with the intense heat common to Sacramento, air conditioning that might work just fine in other parts of the country simply don't cut it in the Central Valley. Homeowners in the northeast, for example, might be able to get away with no air conditioning at all; for many New Englanders, even a single window unit can be considered a luxury. In Sacramento, air conditioners that cannot provide relief for a good portion of a home's living areas might be okay in a pinch, but most would prefer a home where moving from room to room doesn't require a change of clothes.

Most newer homes are designed with central air conditioning in mind. In older homes and fixer-uppers, adding central A/C can be an awkward and expensive task due to the massive amounts of ductwork needed to cool an entire house. For homes where adding ductwork is a tight squeeze, there is good reason to look into ductless and mini-duct air conditioning. Sacramento homeowners might find that these units provide adequate cooling during the hot summer months, but allow you to keep (or in the case of remodels, take back) space that would otherwise be filled to the brim with ductwork.

Heat Pumps: Air Conditioning & Heating in One

Another alternative to standard central A/C is the heat pump. With the ability to both heat your home in the winter and cool it during the summer (using a single duct system), heat pumps can eliminate the need for a separate condenser and furnace system. They are not a good alternative in areas where winters are extremely cold, but in Sacramento, where winters are relatively mild, they are very capable (not to mention efficient) all year long.

Sacramento Air Conditioning Prices

With any device that uses electricity to function, there's good reason to look into how energy efficient it is when replacing or installing. Though an energy saving A/C unit might initially cost more, in the long run, it will save you money on monthly bills; in a place like Sacramento, air conditioners that run efficiently may even pay for themselves over time!

When it comes to the bottom line price of installing air conditioning, there is a fair amount of variation from one job to the next. This can be attributed in part to the cost of the unit, but it may also be due to the amount of alteration needed to install a particular system. We've seen Sacramento prices range from $4,000 to $11,000, though most jobs will fall somewhere in the middle.

Sacramento Air Conditioning Companies

Because of the wide range of prices, it is a very good idea to contact multiple companies and get several quotes before settling on one. In and around Sacramento, air conditioning companies are not difficult to find, but choosing the right one could save you hundreds of dollars, and a few headaches, as well!

Of course, nearly every company is going to have an ad in the phone book. The problem is, it can be extremely difficult to judge a company's merit from an ad. This is where HomeAdvisor can help. Every company we represent nationwide must pass our rigorous screening process before we even consider matching them with a homeowner. Additionally, the folks that have used our contractors in the past are able to leave feedback on our site that you are free to look over. What does this mean for you? Every Sacramento air conditioning company we'll match you with meets higher standards than any phone book requires to place an ad. Plus, our policy of posting the comments of previous clients gives you a chance to hear real life accounts of how particular companies have performed for others, and gives every contractor we work with an extra incentive to make the homeowners they work with in the future happy.
