We Believe Air Conditioning Pricing Should Be an Open Book

No Sales Pressure. Standardized Pricing. The Right Options For You.

How much will it Cost to Replace your Air Conditioner?

We know that shopping for a new Air Conditioner can be daunting. It has become more and more complicated with new technology, energy rebates, more difficult installation requirements, efficiency ratings and operating cost, warranties, factory rebates, etc. It's enough to make your head hurt!

It can be worse than that though.  Some contractors use deceptive marketing schemes to get the phones to ring. However, common sense tells us that 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.

That's why at Watkins you can look at our price book. Our pricing is standardized and 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.

The Watkins Way of Pricing:

  • No Pressure

    We believe it's wrong that anyone would dread an in-home estimate. We will never pressure you to spend more than you can afford or to "buy now."

  • 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.

What can it cost you if you choose the wrong HVAC company?

We know you may find the same system for less money. However, it's important to know that cheaper up-front pricing does not mean that you're getting a better deal. HOW your air conditioner is installed matters.

Today's air conditioner systems are not appliances you can simply un-box and plug in. The efficiency, comfort, and reliability almost entirely depends on the way it's installed. It's not what you buy, but who installs it that matters most.

At Watkins, we don't cut corners. A poor installation will compromise you system's reliability and could shorten its lifespan to less than five years! Not every installation is the same. That's why we commit to:

  • No Shortcuts

    The materials and processes that we use insure quality on the entire project. From better insulation on refrigerant lines to sealed combustion venting. Some companies may offer the same TRANE equipment but take shortcuts on all the supporting components.

  • Thorough Startup

    Without precise startup adjustments, your new system could be as much as 30% less efficient than advertised. Many installers in this industry do not have the training or time to perform a proper startup and checkout procedure.

  • No Shortcuts

    A home comfort system is not just a furnace and an air conditioner, it’s an installed system with many other components.
