This is an estimate only and is not an exact quote or contract. Estimates are your “out of pocket” approximate cost. In some cases a site survey will be recommended to confirm the exact scope of work. Prior to starting the work we will provide you a written exact quote. Taxes are included and any applicable rebates are already credited to you in the estimate.
Warranties – Replacement unit estimates carry the standard registered manufacturer’s warranty (usually 10 years Compressor, coils, and parts). LPAC provides a 1 year on site Labor warranty for any parts that are covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. Details vary per manufacturer.
LPACs Online Estimate System gives you the opportunity to estimate the cost of many of our air conditioner products and services including:
- Duct cleaning
- Vent cleaning
- Central air conditioning installation and repair
- Heating and cooling maintenance services
- Air conditioners’ repair services
- New heating and air conditioner systems
- Most air conditioner system repairs
Our online estimate system provides you with an approximation of the amount of money you might expect to spend on various air conditioner system services. The online estimate feature can also be used to compare prices between alternative services where you have been given options between two or three different types of repairs or replacement parts for your system. Many times you will find, after preparing several estimates, that it is more economical and efficient to replace your entire outdated central air conditioning system than it is to replace major pieces of the system. For example, you might want to use the online estimate system to compare the differences in price estimates between replacing an air conditioner compressor and installing an entirely new central air conditioning system.
You might also wish to compare the estimates from one AC company with another AC company for vent or duct cleaning or the same heating and cooling maintenance or air conditioner installation services. It is always important to make sure you are comparing apples to apples when comparing estimates from various HVAC contractors, as not all AC company “duct” cleaning services for example, may include the same added services as another AC company when they clean air ducts.
After you have had an opportunity to use our Online Estimate System to compare estimates from various AC companies, you will want to contact one of LPAC’s offices to schedule an appointment for a written, exact estimate for the air conditioning work you wish to have done. The next time you find yourself in need of heating and cooling maintenance services, call one of our Bradenton area LPAC offices, and let us show you how to keep your cool!
