Hi, I am Laura Pearman, the AC Answer Lady, holder of a Florida State AC Contractor License Class B, and the Managing Partner at the Frosty’s AC Company.
In this blog article, I am going to discuss the concept of “Best AC Quality at the Best Price” and how Frosty’s achieves this using our approach and documenting it in our Free AC Quote. Also, how Frosty’s AC continues to investigate and embrace the best value with Comfortmaker® at a lower price point.
Our Free AC Quote Describes the Best AC Quality at the Best Price
Our Free AC Quote requires a site visit to your home and business to collect data. Our Frosty’s technician will inspect and evaluate the current equipment placement, plenum, refrigerant lines, drainage line, electrical panel, wiring, outside area, current air handle dimensions, duct distribution, building floor area, current system capacity, direct some questions to the customer, etc. Next, from our site visit, we analyze this information to identify the AC Systems and Heat Pumps that will meet the customer’s needs. We seek to present to our customers the most cost-effective systems and installation to do the job.
Frosty always recommends the best solution for customers. After the Frosty’s technicians give me their data, I develop accurate proposals for each customer. As an authorized dealer of all the major AC brands, I perform a considerable amount of work for each Free AC Quote. I use the AC specifications needed to research systems for the proper cooling capacities. I also look at the system dimensions to best replace the old system with little or no construction rework. I spend a lot of time online to compare different manufacturer’s models for prices with the same specs. Also, I ensure the match of the air handler and AC compressor specifications. I proactively search for discounts and rebates for relevant systems. I narrow down the proposed choices to 3 different models that meet the customer needs for adequate cooling/heating at the lowest price and recommend it as our AC Quote.
We present our custom proposal as an AC Quote to the customer as an accurate final price with details. Our AC Quote is good for 30 days. In our AC Quote, we identify the best AC quality system for the best price.
The Customer’s Budget Will Determine the Best AC Quality
However, some customers don’t want the best system or may think the price is too high for their budget. In general, the higher the quality of an AC system or Heat Pump usually means the prices are higher. I wrote a blog article entitled “What are the Best AC Brands?” where I discuss the three tiers of Best Brands, Good Brands, and Budget Brands.
I write all our AC Quotes for the first tier for the most durability and best value unless the customer tells me their budget or the amount of money they want to spend. Our competitor will respond to our tier 1 AC Quote with tier 2 & 3 level quotes at lower prices. Thus, if we propose a Lennox, (tier 1 brand), and our competitors respond with a Goodman, (tier 3 brand), the price is lower than ours. In these situations, we will re-do our AC Quote for a tier 3 proposal, and in most cases, our AC Quotes are less expensive when you are comparing apples to apples.
Frosty’s Includes a New Budget Brand – Comfortmaker®
Since many customers want the best deal at a particular lower price range, Frosty’s has proactively pursued an investigation and analysis to look at the Budget Brands. Our research and discussion with Comfortmaker® have been very fruitful. We are impressed with Comfortmaker® as the manufacturer of reliable heating and cooling systems built with 100 years of engineering knowledge and quality manufacturing know-how.
Comfortmaker® provides top brand tier benefits of Dehumidification, Quiet, Zoning, Remote Access, Programmable Control, Variable Speed, and SEER ratings up to 19. Within the Comfortmaker® product line, Frosty’s sees a range of tier levels. Comfortmaker® has three major product groups with the following warranty durations based on quality:
- 10 Years – Top-of-the-line products
- 5 Years – Mid-tier products
- 1 or 3 Years – Standard-level products
The top-of-the-line Comfortmaker® products are equivalent to what I call the Best Brand tier. These high-end products are more expensive but provide more value and durability, such as the “No Hassle Replacement™ Limited Warranty.” The “No Hassle Replacement™ Limited Warranty” means you get a replacement unit, not a repair if a significant component (such as the compressor, coil, or heat exchanger) fails during the coverage period.
Hence, Comfortmaker® Air Conditioners or Heat Pumps allows Frosty’s to have a lot of flexibility with the AC Quote and provide quality systems at a lower price point. The key factor of determining brand and quality is the customer budget.
