Testimonial for Best Priced AC Service in Wichita

“All very professional in all ways, l think they did a great job. Actually came 2 days early because our old unit went down for good. Great price on a/c and furnace combo, beat the competition by $2,700 got a better a/c unit for that price. Furnace probably same.

The 2 installer guys were both very nice and helpful and did a amazing job – and I think were fast on installation, started at about 9 am and were finished by 2pm. The house was 86 degrees inside and took about 4 hours got temp to 77 by 6pm. Very comfortable.

Everything looks great and very professional, couldn’t ask for a overall better job at a very good price. Everybody involved was very honest and helpful, more than I can say about other quotes I got from other companies in Wichita area. Excellent job and equipment. My last Lennox unit lasted 26 years – can’t complain about that.”

Wichita Summer Temperatures Soaring

Do you recall the break from the heat we enjoyed in early July of last summer? Some unusual weather conditions and precipitation left much of Kansas with much cooler weather than we usually experience. It was a nice break from the heat, but it didn’t last for long. Come mid July, our high temperatures soared right back up.

In just five days, we went from a very cool high of only 74 right up to a high of 95. And then the temperatures stayed high, putting us into 100 degree heat just a few days later.

Suddenly our air conditioners were going full blast working to keep temperatures in our homes to a cooler temperature. This is precisely a time when these cooling systems are pushed too far. The demand to handle a sudden rise in temperature is often the cause of an AC breaking down.

This cooling system failure should not happen to normal systems. If a central air condioning system breaks down right at the beginning of a heat wave, it’s usually due to one of these conditions:

  • Old air conditioning system
  • HVAC system with loose or broken parts
  • A system that wasn’t installed properly
  • A system that hasn’t gotten regular maintenance
  • Very dirty air filter

For Beverly, she had an old unit. It simply couldn’t keep up with this increased heat. It doesn’t usually take long to realize your home’s cooling system has failed, as the temperature inside your home is gradually creeping up.


Best Priced AC Install: The Importance of Getting Multiple Quotes

A new AC is a relatively big investment in a home. It is an important unit that is meant to last for 10 or more years. So you want to be sure you purchase a good quality system that is reliable.

But the quality of an AC unit is actually the 2nd most important factor in a new installation. The number one most important factor in getting the absolutely best cooling system installation for your home comes down to this: hiring a qualified and skilled HVAC installer.

Too many times, our Fenix technicians are sent out to Wichita homes to handle an AC or furnace that has broken down to find the cause was poor installation.
