Purchasing a New Air Conditioner

Purchasing a new cooling system for your home can be a nerve racking task. If it's time to replace an aging or worn out air conditioner we are here to help make the process easier for you.

Before quoting to replace your existing air conditioner, as an NCI certified contractor we measure the SER of your system. The test reveals the ratio of actual cooling delivery compared to the rated amount the equipment produced when the manufacturer tested the equipment. For example, if an air conditioner worked perfectly, it would be rated at a CSER of 100%. But if it only delivered half the heating, the CSER would be 50%. In simple terms, a 14 Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) air conditioner could only operate like 7 SEER equipment.

We test your equipment first to determine the problem with your system then we recommend the best solution for you.

From the beginning, Brad Boehm was professional, helpful and friendly. His experienced approach to determining best AC unit for our home was why we selected Effective Air. Today Victor and Mike installed the unit- they were friendly, professional and thorough. And patiently explained to us how to use the new Ecobee thermostat.
Highly recommend them!

Effective Air has the best guys, hands down. They are knowledgeable, courteous, friendly, personable - and do a great job servicing our HVAC system. They do not push for an upsale or replacing something that can keep working, but tell you when it's finally time to replace whatever it is. Each technician does a great job explaining the technical in an understandable way. They are definitely a part of our home team.

Earlier this AM, my heating system wasn't working. Within an hour of his arrival, the EA tech had located the problem (a loose wire) & fixed it, restarting my furnace. While he was there, I had him correct a problem with the humidifier that was not working correctly as well. I'm now a satisfied customer!

Customer Testimonials

Effective Air did a phenomenal job! They met the quoted price. But they went well beyond expectations. The new unit is incredibly quiet. Between that and its efficiency, I can only say that I am ecstatic! I've dealt with HVAC contractors in the past. Effective Air blows them all away. They really exceeded my expectations.


Effective Air cleaned and sealed our ducts, installed a whole house water filtration system, drip pans & water sensors for our hot water heaters, wireless thermostat, and new batteries for our battery back up system for our sump pumps!! Great crews! Super neat and respectful and EXCELLENT work! We couldn't be happier. They helped us trouble shoot & solve several of our heating and cooling issues. Found & corrected a fire hazard that should have been caught by inspectors, and suggested a great company that helped us with some insulation issues. Jon was a pleasure to work with during the quoting and follow up process as well.


I would highly recommend Effective Air to everyone. Gary is the best and is very honest when it comes to what I need for the air conditioning and heating. Just a nice guy who is extremely efficient. They are very attentive and accommodating with appointments. I have been using Effective Air for at least 10 years. I could not ask for better service.
