When it comes to air conditioning systems recent studies of refrigerant charge and airflow revealed that as many as eight out of ten A/C systems have incorrect airflow, and seven out of ten systems are incorrectly charged; that means there's good chance yours is 'draining your pocketbook' and shortening the life of your equipment.
What Most Homeowners Don't Realize: It starts with understanding how your current system was likely installed. It’s unfortunate, but 90% of new systems are installed poorly; so you only have a 10% chance of getting your original system installed correctly. They may be operating, but do you know at what level? Today, more than ever, folks are looking to get the most out of each $1 and the least amount of hassle.
At Sims Heating and Cooling, our employees receive continuing training so they are up to date on the most recent and advanced techniques in the industry. 91 percent of consumers prefer a certified HVACR technician over a non-certified technician to service their heating and cooling systems. It is no surprise that consumers want a job done right the first time. Call-backs are not only expensive for us and inconvenient for you, the customers. They can undermine our relationships with you which work hard to establish.
