Air Conditioning Installation and Replacement

If your air conditioner has reached the point where repairs no longer do the job or your home’s energy efficiency is at an all-time low, you may need a new system. When your home is ready for a new or replacement air conditioner, our Stellar Services professionals will install your cooling system without delay.

How do you know if you need a replacement air conditioner? Here are some of the most common issues. Your unit is:

  • Approaching the end of its life span, usually between 15 and 20 years
  • Efficiency decreases as your system gets closer to the end of its life. You want to act proactively to plan what your replacement purchase will be instead of acting reactively when your system unexpectedly quits. This can save you money.

  • Experiencing more and more repairs
  • Similar to when your car requires more and more repairs, there comes a time for evaluation. Are you spending more in repairs than it would cost to invest in a new system? If the answer is yes, call and talk to one of our knowledgeable team members to discuss your options.

  • Showing signs of running inefficiently
  • How can you tell if your air conditioner is running inefficiently? A good indication is if your energy bills are increasing and your utility company’s rates remain steady.

This typically demonstrates it’s taking longer for your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system to cool down your Florida home to your preferred comfort level. Your system is running longer and using more energy than it should in this case—an increase in energy costs.

If you notice any of these signs with your air conditioner, or if you suspect another reason for needing a replacement, talk to one of our Stellar Services team members. We will design a system best matched for your comfort needs and budget. Our experts are always here to help you.

We also offer several financing options to help if this is a concern. Contact us to discuss how our team can guide you through our process.

Air Conditioning Repairs

Not having your air conditioner working on the hottest of days in Florida can be exasperating. Whenever you need a repair, let our heating and cooling experts quickly remedy it for you.

There are many ways your air conditioner can stop working in its normal capacity. A few symptoms you could experience are:

  • Hearing an unusual noise
  • Smelling an unusual odor like burning
  • Feeling warm air coming from your vents
  • Noticing your air conditioner is frozen
  • Leaking water

These symptoms mean you have an issue with your air conditioner. Ignoring problems usually only makes them bigger and more costly. Our recommendation is to have one of our Stellar Services team members promptly diagnose and repair the issue for you.

Sometimes a repair turns into an emergency. Give us a call when it’s urgent. We are here 24/7 for you.

When you do need our professionals to make a repair, you can count on it staying repaired. We make our repairs right the first time—and only use the highest quality parts and materials when working on your system. Our experts are always here for you.

Air Conditioning Maintenance

Keeping your air conditioner in its best operating condition is your goal. You want your system inspected, cleaned, and tuned up on a regular basis to help avoid unexpected and costly repairs and breakdowns.

Routine maintenance by our trained and experienced Stellar Services team helps your air conditioner cool your home efficiently and reliably. With annual professional care, you may experience maintenance benefits such as improved energy efficiency, extended system life span, and decreased emergencies.

We recommend having our experts prep your air conditioner before you use it for the first time in the spring to give you consistent cooling all season.

To help you manage your maintenance, talk to us about our maintenance program, Preventative Maintenance Plan. Your air conditioner tune-up and inspection are part of the plan, so call and speak with one of our educated and friendly team members about our program today.

“Truly Stellar Service! Carlos Rodriguez had a fast, accurate diagnosis, had the repair/replacement installed in under :90 mins. That he did not oversell, made a suggestion about replacing additional item asap was greatly appreciated. I recommend Stellar Services without hesitation. Top Notch, thoughtful same day service. How cool.”
- Pamela M.

“Such a great company to partner with! Stellar services our office and our home. We have been long time customers of Josh and Stellar, and they have always given great service no matter what day or time. They came out once on the 4th of July to put in a new unit! No other company that I know would get a tech late on a Saturday afternoon, but today, Joe came out and had our AC unit back up and running in an hour! Thank you so much for being so accommodating. I recommend your company to anyone needing AC help!”

- Carol E.

“All I can say is WOW!!!A/C went out that evening called the next morning and technician was at our house 30 minutes later. He was efficient, courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. Very reasonable service charge, lowest for the area, prices not good….they were GREAT!!! Told by previous HVAC company it would need to be replaced but they evaluated the unit, made the repair and said we should get more life out of the unit. The tech went above and beyond and the work was guaranteed for 30 days. Highly recommend and can’t say enough good things about them. Will use again if ever need HVAC work done.”

- J.C. -.

“We love Stellar Services, Josh and everyone else we have worked with. The company comes out twice a year to service our AC unit and, at 25 years old (yes, it’s that old), it’s still going strong. We also had Stellar install a brand new unit in our extension, and it is beautiful. It works very well, and most importantly, it was affordable. Josh works with you and your family to ensure that you don’t go bankrupt maintaining your home. We would definitely recommend Stellar Services to anyone”

- Allison L.

“Stellar is just that, beginning to end. They’re really good at communicating so you know exactly when your technician is coming. The man who inspected my aging AC system went out of his way to be thorough – and honest – and really helpful. The next day, an itemized receipt was sent via email. I’m so impressed with Stellar and am very glad to have had them recommended.”

- Kate L.

“Stellar Services are exactly that, Stellar! I scheduled an appointment to have our A/C looked at, and a very nice tech named Anthony came out a day earlier than expected. It was a nice surprise! He followed up the next day just to make sure everything was running smoothly which was much appreciated! You can tell Anthony cares about what he does. I highly recommend Stellar services!”

- George D.

“Everyone I interacted with from Stellar Services was super professional. My old AC kept freezing up and they were able to come out even sooner than planned to install the new one (which is a big deal in Florida). They got the job done well and did not leave me hanging when I needed to find an electrician for some electrical work. I am glad we chose Stellar Services!”

- Danielle H.

“Stellar Services is everything you want in a service company. They are good people doing great, honest work at honest prices. They are trustworthy and dependable. And whenever we have needed them for repairs, they have responded promptly. I liked them so much I am now using them to service my home HVAC system. I highly recommend them.”

- Miffy B.

“I called to schedule an appointment at around 830 am. Was able to have a tech put between 10 and 12 of the same morning. My tech arrived early and immediately started inspecting my a.c. unit. He also took the time to explain and show me everything he was looking at. He showed me the programs he used to do his inspection as well. He offered info about a couple of options for me to increase the production of my system with no pressure to buy anything. Have dealt with a couple of different companies out there and have to admit that Stellar Services are far better than most, not only price wise but in professionalism as well. Highly recommend them for your services.”
