    What Our Customers Say

    This will save you money!
    This was well worth the money. Quick and easy to work with. The heat and air guys wanted me to buy 7 tons and after it was all said and done I only need 3.5tons. Was a great service to capitalize all of my energy efficient components of my new house.”

    Michelle and Billy Fields – Carney, Oklahoma

    My wife and I employed David Brown to design HVAC for our dream retirement home. David gave us a great usable working plan, one that we could do some of the work ourselves. David helped us with sizing requirements and with some space difficulties. David told us he would not be finished with the plan until we were happy with the plan. We couldn't be happier with the working plan that David provided for us. After living for years in a house where the plumber designed the system and all the faults that came with that we are looking forward to the comfort provided by ConsultAir in our custom designed plan. David's fee has been the best money we've spent on our house so far. You just can't go wrong with ConsultAir and David Brown.”

    Rod Williamson – Grand Saline, TX

    I recently contracted with ConsultAir to perform a Manual J, S, and D for a custom home i am building (General Contractor). The experience was very positive. I had previously performed a Manual J analysis on an install i did about a year ago, so i have some experience on what to look for. David Brown was very thorough about collecting all the data needed to get the most accurate heat loss, heat gain, equipment and duct sizing. He was particularly good at explaining the various options for fresh air recovery as well as the benefits of single stage, two stage, and modulating equipment.

    His expertise helped catch a few errors that would have been made by the HVAC contractor. Great experience!”

Read This Before You Install Central AC

Here’s what you need to know before investing in a whole-house system

Central AC Today

More than any other technology, air-conditioning has transformed how we live and work—and where we live and work. Yet as recently as 1993, only 68 percent of houses in the United States had some cooling equipment, either window air conditioners or central AC systems. Now, more than 87 percent of houses are so equipped. While the number with window AC units has shrunk overall, these appliances are still cooling significant numbers of homes, particularly in the Northeast, despite being noisy and obtrusive, and having limited efficiency and cooling capacity. Not to mention the twice-yearly struggle of putting them in and taking them out.

By comparison, central AC is a giant leap forward in convenience, quiet, and, most of all, comfort. Properly sized and installed, a split system—one with indoor and outdoor equipment—can keep an entire house nicely chilled on the hottest days, and do so far more efficiently than a battalion of window units.

On the following pages, we walk you through the factors that affect how these systems function. So whether you’re planning to deep-six the window ACs and install central air from scratch, or you’re investing in an HVAC upgrade, you’ll find loads of useful information to help you make smart decisions.
