Air Conditioning

Air conditioning service.

Purchasing a new air conditioner (AC) is a significant investment, and we will do our best to help you get the most value from your purchase. At Western Heating & Air Conditioning, our top priority is keeping our Idaho clients comfortable, safe, and healthy throughout the year.

An energy-efficient heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system not only adds tremendous value to your home but also plays a vital role in maintaining your indoor air quality (IAQ). Western Heating & Air Conditioning is your hometown expert when it comes to heating and cooling.

Our family-owned company has proudly served homes and businesses in Boise, Meridian, Eagle, and other parts of the Treasure Valley since 1967. We’re an authorized dealer of Carrier products, but we can certainly install, replace, repair, and maintain all major brands of HVAC equipment.

When you choose Western, you’re going with an insured, bonded, and licensed company that enjoys an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. We take great pride in our clientele referrals and five-star Google reviews.

Why Buy a New Air Conditioner?

Whether at work or home, most of us spend the vast majority of our day indoors. Heating and cooling your Boise home or business can account for up to 40 percent of your annual energy costs, according to the US Department of Energy (DOE). Lowering these bills means more money in your pocket.

Comfort is another great reason to invest in a new AC, especially on those super hot days here in the Treasure Valley. Your air conditioner removes the heat and humidity from your home, leaving your cool and refreshed. But over time, air conditioners tend to slow down while their repair bills go up.

After 10 years of reliable service, most air conditioners tend to struggle to keep up with the demands of cooling off an entire home. Your AC might still run, but your energy expenses are likely going up over the year. Plus, you increase the likelihood of an inconvenient and costly repair with an older model.

It is so much easier to budget for the replacement of your HVAC equipment rather than having to replace it because the current system no longer works. Never wait until your system completely breaks down—call our team if you detect an issue so we can assess the situation and offer some practical solutions.

How Much Money Can a New Air Conditioner Save You?

Our SEER2 (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio 2) energy savings calculator can help determine how much you could save on your utility bills. Simply enter your current unit’s SEER value and compare it to a newer, more efficient SEER2 unit. You can even customize it to better match your home’s system for a more accurate calculation.

AC Installation or Replacement

When it comes to heating and cooling systems, your major costs come with the purchase and installation of your equipment. Once it is in place, the savings can begin!

At Western, we offer great financing and extended warranty packages to give you peace of mind when you are ready to make your purchase. Our installation experts will consider the square footage of your Meridian home and your needs in recommending the right air conditioner for you and your loved ones.

We never take shortcuts when installing heating and cooling equipment—these systems must be installed correctly to get the best performance.

In picking out your new air conditioner, you will probably want to start with the SEER rating—or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. A higher SEER translates into a more energy-efficient air conditioner. Our team at Western can help you determine the right rating for your Eagle home or business.

Finally, this might be the right time to replace both your furnace and AC unit. Replacing both pieces of equipment at the same time could save you money on the purchase along with the installation cost.

If the two pieces of equipment are about the same age, consider replacing them together. Our team can help you fill out the paperwork for rebates and possible energy credits.

AC Repairs

If your air conditioner breaks down, call us right away. You rely on your AC to cool down your home during the hottest months of the summer here in the Treasure Valley. Our repair specialists work with all makes and models of HVAC equipment.

Here are some warning signs that you may need to have your AC repaired:

  • Your system is making strange noises
  • Your system is not cooling evenly
  • Your system isn’t cooling at all
  • Your system is inefficient
  • Your cooling bill is way too high

We offer 24/7 emergency repair services to be there when you need us most. We provide accurate estimates to avoid any hidden surprises and promise never to replace a part unless necessary—or if we can demonstrate significant cost savings.

AC Maintenance

Enjoy the VIP treatment and sign up for the Blue Ribbon Service that is available to all residential clients. Preventative maintenance extends the service life of your HVAC equipment and keeps it running at peak efficiency.
