Ballpark Estimates

Sponsored Content provided by Jimmy Williams - Owner, O’Brien Service Company

We understand why asking for ballpark estimates for a new HVAC system may seem like a perfectly reasonable question. 

You have a budget and want a broad sense of the cost to ensure your family can handle the expense. We operate a small, family-owned company and share a lot of the same concerns you do.

That said, “Can you give me a ballpark...” translates to, “Can you guess exactly what’s required to install this thing we haven’t even defined yet?” This really puts us in a tough position and makes it more difficult for us to help you. We love helping our clients and solving problems that, unfortunately, simply giving “ballpark estimates” will not address.

We need lots information to provide a comprehensive estimate, designed specifically for your home. Your 1,800 square foot home is not always the same as your neighbors’.

We need details that cannot be obtained without laying eyes on the project, details such as:

  • Current equipment location
  • Electrical capacity
  • Insulation values
  • Current duct condition
  • Construction materials
  • Window construction
  • Home orientation
  • Flooring materials
  • Roofing materials
As you can tell, a lot goes into providing a complete estimate for your home’s heating and cooling system. We don’t mind doing the work, though.  

As mentioned before, we love helping our clients and solving problems.  Problems like high utility bills, uneven air flow throughout the home, high humidity and even more-than-usual dust in the home can be solved with a whole home evaluation. 

Who’s to say the system installed in your home 20 years ago was the right or best choice? Plus, would you really trade in a 1998 Chevy for a 1998 Chevy?  Isn’t that what you are asking for when you want “ballpark estimates”?

Your home is probably your single-largest investment. We spend most of our time in our homes. Therefore, don’t we deserve to be comfortable and not overpay each month in utility bills? 

Please allow us into your home to do a proper evaluation. From there, we will design a proper system for your home, discuss exact cost and even provide payment options to fit your budget needs.
