Although the cooling season in New England is relatively short, that doesn’t mean you want to go through the summer without a reliable air conditioning system. We’ve seen periods when high levels of heat and humidity have put a big strain on older cooling systems. If your equipment isn’t up to the job, please contact us about replacing it.

A new, high-efficiency system could cut your cooling costs in half—and eliminate the expense and annoyance of breakdowns—while keeping your home more comfortable, no matter how high the mercury soars.

If you trust us to help you stay warm in the winter, why not let us help you stay cool in the summer too? Your friends at Scott Williams can perform a complete comfort analysis of your home, talk with you about your needs—and your budget—and help you choose the right size and type of system. Then we’ll install it properly to ensure that your new system keeps your home more comfortable and costs less to operate than your old one.

Air Conditioning FAQs

air conditioning
Q: What does SEER mean?
A: SEER stands for seasonal energy efficiency ratio—an indicator of the efficiency of air conditioning systems. The higher the SEER number, the more cooling you get per unit of energy.

Q: If my outside condenser unit needs to be replaced, does it mean I have to replace my indoor unit as well?
A: It’s never a good idea to mix and match A/C components with different energy ratings. You’re better off paying a little extra up front, because you’ll be saving a lot more over time.

Q: My home has a forced-air furnace but no air conditioning. Can I add central air?
A: Yes. We can mount a cooling coil on top of the furnace and install a condensing unit outside. If you’re ready for a new furnace installation, we can recommend energy-efficient units that incorporate A/C.

Q: My home does NOT have forced-air heating and there is no ductwork. Can I still get central air conditioning?
A: Absolutely! Today’s simple ductless air conditioning options make it possible to install a quiet, efficient air conditioning system in your home even if it doesn’t have ductwork.

Q: Do I really need a tune-up for my air conditioning system?
A: Yes. A tune-up ensures that your system will run at peak efficiency, so you’ll lower your electric bills. A system that’s running efficiently can save you as much as 30% on your cooling costs.

Q: What is R-22 refrigerant?
A: This is an outdated refrigerant that is being phased out and replaced with environmentally friendly refrigerants. If your cooling system still uses R-22 refrigerant, we recommend replacing it, because R-22 is becoming scarce—and expensive. If your old cooling system starts leaking R-22, you could be looking at a very costly repair.
