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 Eldersburg, MD, home is ready for a new or replacement air conditioner, our Design Flow Heating & Cooling 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 12 and 15 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 Maryland 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 an AC replacement, talk to one of our Design Flow Heating & Cooling 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.

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

  • Hearing an unusual noise

“My family and I had the best experience with Brian and his team. They replaced our heat pump and main air conditioning units and added a new unit and duct work to our upper level. My husband was deployed at the time of installation. When he returned home several months later, Brian came back to our house and walked my husband through all the work he and his team had completed. Meant so much to us that he did that that he took that time to care for us. The whole team was so kind and respectful. Highly recommend.”

- Sarah R.

“We had a great experience using Design Flow to update our very outdated system.

The difference in our heating efficiency throughout the house is much improved thanks to our new system!”

“Hands down best HVAC service in the area. Had to get a new whole house system this year, plus repair a split unit. They were extremely patient while we reviewed which whole house system would be best for us, and even answered questions and walked me through it after hours!! Tech’s on site were very knowledgeable and helpful with questions! Recommended to everyone who asks!”

- Amanda L.

“Design Flow Heating and Cooling were wonderful to work with. Brian was very responsive. He came out and gave us an estimate quickly. His rates were competitive with others we received. Brain answered all my questions. We were able to schedule an install quickly. Again Brian showed up on time and finished the job in the predicted amount of time. Our new unit is working great. Highly recommend Design Flow for any HVAC needs.”
