We Install AC Equipment to Help You Battle the Tampa Heat

In a place like Florida, having a working air conditioner is essential to function, let alone live in comfort. If you have an AC unit that isn’t working as well as it should or one that has stopped working completely, we can help you through every step of the process of getting a new one—not just the installation but the selection of the best equipment.
We support you by:

  • Analyzing your space during our inspection to understand your needs
  • Helping you select the proper size of equipment for your space
  • Discussing the pros and cons of each brand and how it suits your home
  • Offering several equipment options so that you pick what works for you

Before we even start installing equipment, we make sure we have done the calculations to understand what you need to keep your home cool and your unit running correctly. By the end, the team at 3H will know your system inside and out—literally.

At the same time, we understand that this is a specialized field you may know nothing about. That’s okay! Our technicians and staff can explain the process to ensure you understand what is happening with your home and AC.

Our Comprehensive Post-AC Installation Support

While we stress the importance of prepping for your installation to ensure everything goes smoothly, we don’t neglect taking care of you after installation. We do another evaluation of your home and system.
We know you need to live with your new AC for a while to know how it’s working for you. At our scheduled post-installation follow-up, we make final tweaks and address any of your concerns so that everything operates as it should.

Our Warranty

Making a big purchase like a new AC is nerve-wracking. However, with our warranty, you’re covered. It includes

  • Ten-year warranty for major part replacements
  • One-year labor warranty
  • Registration of your equipment with the vendor

Free One-Year Audit

On top of everything else, we also check in with you after a year, free of charge. We can address any questions or concerns. We also do another evaluation of how the system is performing and how you feel in your home. We want to set you up for years of worry-free, hassle-free air conditioning.

How Long AC Installation Takes in Tampa

After an initial appointment to assess your needs, we can typically complete the actual installation of your new AC in one day, depending on the size of your home or facility. Sometimes complications arise, typically due to safety concerns or unforeseen issues, but we work to keep you in the loop if that happens. Otherwise, we work fast to get your home back to normal.

What Happens During an Installation?

Air conditioner systems have many parts that work together to keep you cool on a Tampa day. At 3H AC, our installation process can include replacing:

  • Pads under the AC unit
  • Evaporator coils
  • Refrigerant lines
  • Condensing units
  • Wiring and cables

That list may sound like a lot, but those are all the normal components of an AC system—and we come prepared.

We Can Help With Ductwork, Too

Our initial inspection and one-year free check-up will also analyze your ductwork to ensure it is operating correctly. Through this investigation, we can ensure you don’t have any leaking seals or bad insulation, ruining your energy efficiency. If we do spot this problem, we can take measures to fix the issue.

When to Replace Your AC in Tampa

Maybe you just think your AC needs an upgrade to a newer, better model. However, if you aren’t sure if it’s time, consider the following:

  • The National Association of Home Builders reports that the average lifespan for a typical air conditioning unit is between 10-15 years.
  • Smells and sounds – Noticing strange odors emanating from your AC or loud or unexpected sounds?
  • Constant running – Does it seem like your AC is always playing catch-up with your thermostat, having to work constantly to keep your place cool?
  • High bills – Are your energy expenses starting to hurt your wallet?
  • Frequent repairs – Have you already needed to replace parts and address problems? Is that happening more frequently?
  • Temperature regulation – Are some rooms hotter than others? Is your home never reaching your target temperature?

If you answered yes to any of these, it could be time to install a new AC in your Tampa home. Our team can discuss your options with you.

Benefits of Installing a New AC System

Having a new air conditioning system can result in

  • Lowered energy bills
  • Reduced risk of a breakdown
  • Regulated room temperature
  • Better air quality
  • Less humidity

In other words, the benefit of installing a new AC system is comfort—for your body, for your wallet, and for your peace of mind.

Tampa AC Installation Pricing

Anyone who has ever stepped outside in the middle of a Florida summer knows that air conditioning is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. But when it comes time to install a new AC unit, homeowners are often surprised by the range in cost.
AC units come in a variety of sizes, from 1 ton to 5 tons, and the price varies based upon the square footage of your home, the energy efficiency of the unit, and the cooling speed.
The good news is that there are a few ways to save on AC installation and cooling costs. Our team at 3H AC of Tampa is here to help you choose what is the best option for you.

Factors That Affect Price

As a Tampa homeowner, the factors that affect your HVAC installation price are the usual installation factors, along with extra features that can add some costs.
Aside from heat pumps, you may need to install new central air infrastructure or ductwork. To ensure indoor air quality, you have options to include humidification systems that will add to the price of your new AC unit.

Energy Efficiency

With an average of 246 sunny days per year, Pinellas and Hillsborough counties are among the sunniest places in the country. And while the sun may be a welcome source of natural light, it can also be a major source of heat.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the most efficient air conditioners use 30% to 50% less energy to produce the same amount of cooling as air conditioners made in the mid-1970s.
Keep in mind your air conditioner will work overtime to keep you cool, and that can get expensive. An energy-efficient AC unit not only helps the environment but will save you money on your monthly energy bill.

System Size

When it comes to choosing the right air conditioning unit, size matters. A unit that is too small will have to work several times as hard to cool your Florida home, leading to higher energy bills and a shorter lifespan.
On the other hand, a unit that is too large will cool your home too quickly, resulting in wasted energy and excess humidity. To find the perfect balance, call us for a free consultation to help you choose the right unit for your home.

Comfort Features

Indoor temperature inconsistency can be really frustrating. The good news is that there are things you can do to cool down your home and keep it comfortable year-round.
One option is to invest in a two-stage air conditioner. These units offer low and high-stage cooling, so they can better meet the cooling needs of your environment.
Multi-stage compressors operate more quietly and can increase the comfort of living in a cool home. If you have a pet peeve about air conditioner noises, this is a must-have comfort feature.
Another option is to look for an AC unit with features like variable speed blowers. These features help to provide more even cooling throughout your home, so you don’t have to worry about hot spots.

Manufacturer Warranty Length

A longer warranty may cost more, but it also gives you more peace of mind and protection. 3H AC offers a ten-year warranty that includes the replacement of parts, so if something does go wrong, you’re covered.
In addition to the warranty, it’s recommended that you check your AC unit annually. This is also a good time to analyze your ductwork and inspect your entire HVAC unit.
By taking these preventative measures, you can avoid future repairs and AC unit issues, and keep your home comfortable for years to come.

Here's Why 3H's AC Installation Services are Different

Getting the right HVAC system and equipment takes strategy. It’s not an easy fix and should be thoroughly considered. Doing it right requires serious pre-installation legwork. Otherwise, you might end up with a system that underperforms…and who wants that? Nobody! That’s why our installations include:

  • Manual load calculations for proper equipment sizing in each zone
  • Ductwork analysis to assess airflow limitations, the impact of duct infrastructure on system performance, and opportunities to improve efficiency and comfort
  • Additional calculations to help you select equipment and understand the impact of ductwork and grille modifications (when needed)
  • Your choice of two-speed or variable speed AC and two-stage or modulating heating/furnace equipment in addition to standard options

After your installation, we don’t just wave goodbye and exit the stage. We schedule a follow-up appointment – not a callback, but a post-installation evaluation – to make sure everything’s working properly. You can expect a 1-year free check-up, and mid-point check, to ensure any adjustments needed are applied. Here’s how we do it:

  • Top-to-bottom quality control audit that covers every aspect of system operation
  • Subjective comfort evaluation – is the system keeping you comfortable? If not, we’ll get to the bottom of it
  • Re-testing to ensure proper airflow, ductwork performance, and room-to-room pressure balance

Frequently Asked Questions

HVAC is short for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. The term HVAC usually refers to the whole heating and cooling system including the air filters, duct work, humidity controls, and registers.

An AC unit needs to be just the right size. A unit that is too big will not run very often and will therefore not keep the humidity at the proper level. A unit that is too small will run all

Installing a new AC unit will save you money on cooling costs in the long run, but we also have flexible financing options available to cover the upfront costs. View our financing options here.

Summertime in Tampa Bay is serious business. The last thing you want is for your air conditioner to go out when it’s over 90 degrees with tons of humidity. That’s why it’s important to know how long AC units typically last and when a new HVAC unit is needed.

As mentioned, according to the National Association of Home Builders, the average lifespan of an air conditioning unit is 10-15 years. But that’s just an average.

Some AC units will last longer with proper maintenance while others won’t make it to the 10-year mark. But be sure to look out for signs you need to replace your AC  unit:

  • Repairs are needed more frequently, and you’re getting frustrated with ongoing service calls. 
  • The thermostat seems off, or it doesn’t seem to be cooling your Florida home adequately. 

It may be time for a new AC unit. You don’t want to be miserable during a heatwave while shopping for a new AC unit. Do yourself a favor and call us at 3HAC, your expert AC installation services in Tampa.

The quick answer is that it depends. The cost to install an AC unit in Florida varies depending on a number of factors, including the age of your home, square footage, and what’s required to install a new AC in your home.

In other words, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. However, we can give you a few pointers to help you get a general idea of what you can expect to pay. 

First, if you have an older home, it’s likely that your ductwork will need to be replaced or repaired. We’ll determine if your ductwork needs replacement during inspection. Replacing ductwork will add to the overall cost of the project. 

Second, the larger your home, the more expensive it will be to install a new AC unit. 

Finally, if you live in Florida, our sunshine state is known for severe weather conditions. You will need to invest in additional equipment to ensure that your unit can withstand the elements of muggy summers and hurricanes.

The cost of installing an AC unit in Florida can vary greatly depending on a number of factors that we are more than happy to go over with you. That’s why it’s always a good idea to contact us with all your questions.

To get an accurate estimate, schedule an appointment. By taking all of the above-mentioned factors into consideration, our team of experts is ready to help you with your AC service today!
