Air Conditioner Replacement Pricing
Shopping for a new A/C has become more complicated with new technology, energy rebates, more difficult installation requirements, efficiency ratings and operating cost, warranties, factory rebates, etc. These factors have a very real effect on your Total Cost (initial investment + energy usage + repairs + maintenance).
Some contractors today are using deceptive marketing schemes to get the phones to ring. Common sense tells us offers such as a free air conditioner with the purchase of a furnace are just sales gimmicks. Their cost is always buried in the price. We all want to save money when making a major purchase but shell games should be a warning sign.
The Watkins Way
No pressure – We will never pressure you to spend more than you can afford or to “buy now.” We’re just here to explain available options. You shouldn’t dread an in-home estimate!
Design by an experienced technician – Many air conditioning contractors use high-pressure salesmen with more training on “overcoming price objections” than on solving comfort and airflow problems. Our technicians have the experience needed to identify and solve complex comfort issues.
Open-book pricing – You can look at our price book. Our pricing is standardized; all the options are laid on the table for you. We believe that you should be the one to choose which air conditioning system is right for your family.

Why choose Watkins to install your new central air conditioner?
Unlike a refrigerator, you cannot simply unbox an air conditioner and plug it in. If installed incorrectly, it may only last a few years, giving you nothing but frustration. So, don’t shop for a central air conditioner like an appliance. And remember, it’s not the brand you buy but the team that installs it that matters most. Ready to learn more?
