Which air conditioning brand do you guys recommend?
We supply and install Trane and Mitsubishi units with financing available. When selecting a unit, our team will provide specific recommendations based on your family's needs, energy efficiency requirements, and overall budget. We are proud to be Trane Comfort Specialists and Mitsubishi Elite Diamond Contractors.
How much does it cost to have air conditioning installed?
Air conditioning installation price varies. One of the primary costs will be for the unit itself. Our technicians also have the ability to modify ductwork in case it is needed. We will also charge an installation fee that varies depending on how many installation parts we use, and how much time it takes to do the job. But no matter what, we will give you a written firm proposal in advance, before we start the work, guarantee the price, and guarantee the work!
How much should it cost to convert from a traditional to tankless hot water heater?
Tankless water heaters are often more costly to install than traditional tank water heaters. However, the overall cost for installing a tankless hot water heater will vary depending on your existing plumbing and the cost and capacity of the unit itself. Tankless hot water heaters are a great option for new builds and when easy accessibility and venting are available. Annual maintenance for your new tankless water heater is vital to keep it functioning properly!
Can you repair any brand of water heater?
Yes! We are experienced in water heater repairs with most makes and models of water heaters. Whether you have a traditional tank water heater or a tankless unit, our reputable professionals are highly capable of fixing any problem you might have with your hot water unit. As long as the parts available, we offer repairs for most water heater brands. If your water heater is over eight years old, parts aren’t readily available, or repairs will cost over $800, we may recommend installing a new unit for the most cost-effective option.
I have bad allergies. What can help improve the air in my house?
For individuals who suffer from allergies, we recommend installing indoor air quality systems to help remove contaminants, bacteria and molds, viruses, and allergens from the air. Robert B. Payne, Inc. offers indoor air quality assessments and installation services such as Air Scrubber and Reme Halo systems which work to keep the air you breathe as healthy and pure as possible!
