Precision Air came to my house on July 27th to fix our AC during this wild heat wave. They were on time, professional, and went above and beyond to ensure we understood the issue and how they would fix it. Our unit was fixed and pumping out cold air with it thirty minutes. I cannot recommend this company enough and will only use precision air for any future HVAC related issues!

Kevin showed up to check my unit because the over flow sensor was triggered. He came earlier than expected (which is a good thing) and he was very patient in answering all my questions. Explained everything to me and made sure I had a good understanding of what happened. I am extremely pleased with the customer service and the techs that have been sent to my house.

We install all types of air conditioners

No matter the type of air conditioner you’re looking to install, we have options to fit your needs. Most are available to view firsthand in our Corpus Christi showroom. From central ac units to PTAC installations, we’ve got you covered. Not sure which option you choose? Here are some pros and cons of each.

Mini-Split AC Installation (Wall Mounted)

Like a traditional HVAC system, there is an outside unit and a single indoor unit that distributes that conditioned air. Hence the term, “split system.”

A mini-split system also has two split units, an outdoor heat pump or condenser and an indoor air handler or handlers. Since the indoor component comprises multiple mini units, one for each room or zone, it’s a “mini-split.”

We proudly offer Mitsubishi mini-split AC units with the industry’s best warranty.

✔︎ Energy-efficient zoning
Mini-splits have some of the highest efficiency rate systems on the market and are anywhere from 25 to 35 percent more efficient.

✔︎ Flexibility in mounting locations
There’s no ductwork involved with a mini-split installation, so there’s no need to break through walls and crawl through tight spaces to add runs to the ductwork.

✔︎ Simple maintenance
No ductwork to periodically reseal or to get clogged with debris to the point where it needs to be cleaned.

✔︎ Quieter operation
Mini split systems have some of the lowest decibel ratings on the market, sometimes quieter than a human whisper.


𝗫 Aesthetics
Despite the variety of indoor units, some people just don’t like the idea of a visible AC unit in a room.

𝗫 Cost
Generally speaking, the upfront cost to install a mini-split system is a bit more than a conventional system due to the technology used and installation time required.

𝗫 Lack of familiarity
It can take customers a bit of time to learn how to use the system and get used to the controls and thermostats. In addition, these systems are designed to be “on” all the time, which can take some getting used to.


Central AC Installation

Central air conditioning seems like a good proposal for most homeowners, especially if you live in the Corpus Christi area where it’s warm or hot for most of the year. Add on the adoption of smart home automation, you can stay cool while being energy efficient.

But central air conditioning isn’t necessarily a remedy. It has downsides you need to consider before making this purchase.

✔︎ Consistent temperature all year
Living in Texas, we’re used to hot summers and warm winters. Central air conditioning is the best way to keep your home cool, constantly, in every room.

✔︎ Filtered air
One of the other benefits of this system is the air pushed through the ducts is filtered. The air quality of your home will improve, which means fewer allergens and potentially harmful gases.


𝗫 Higher energy bills
Pushing cooled air into every room of your home can increase your energy bill if you’re moving from no air conditioning at all to central air conditioning. Luckily, we have a number of energy-efficient air conditioning options to choose from.

𝗫 Duct maintenance
Bacteria and mold can build up without regular maintenance. You’ll need to keep a close eye on the cleanliness of the ducts and have them professionally cleaned at least once a year.

PTAC Installation (Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner)

A PTAC or “packaged terminal air conditioner” is a commercial-grade, self-contained unit that is installed through a wall.

PTAC systems both cool and heat. Due to their quiet power, energy efficiency, and serviceability, PTACs are dominant in the hotel industry but are also suitable for home use.

We prefer Friedrich PTAC systems, known for superior quality and longevity.

✔︎ Cooling and heating year-round
The ability of PTAC to provide both cooling in the summer and heating in the winter made them invaluable for sunrooms and additions.

✔︎ Easy installation
Because you don’t need ductwork, the PTAC units are quite easy to install. You just have to install the indoor and outdoor units, make a hole in the wall, pull through the refrigerant and communication lines, and you’re done.

✔︎ Affordable
PTAC units cost less than $1,500. Compared to central air conditioning systems that can cost $10,000 or more, they are very inexpensive.


𝗫 Less efficient than mini splits
New PTAC units are fairly energy efficient, but they cannot contend with 20+ SEER-rated mini-splits. That means there is a more efficient alternative to PTAC units.

𝗫 No zone control
Unlike mini-splits, PTAC units are installed in a single room and can’t be moved to provide cooling and heating to other rooms.

𝗫 Temperature fluctuations
Because they lack the cooling and heating output, PTAC units cannot provide a constant indoor temperature at extremely high and low temperatures.

How much does a new air conditioning unit cost?

Similar to buying a new car or truck, there are less expensive systems, and more full-featured units. We will review your space and give you advice. Many clients choose our finance option for $0 down and as little as $129 per month.

  • How many square feet can it cool?
  • How energy efficient is it?
  • Which parts of your existing system can be reused? (ductwork, electrical, plumbing, etc)
  • Will there be upgrades? (filtration, UV disinfection, thermostat, code requirement work)?
  • How much can you save with tax credits and rebates?
Is there a best time to install a new air conditioner?

Yes. Sometimes the air conditioning manufacturers offer off-season rebates – we’ll remind you.

Just because you click the thermostat and nothing happens, or the air conditioner is running and the air is not cool, doesn’t require a brand new unit. Invite us to have a look. We will do a thorough inspection and get you back up to speed. If you do need a new air conditioning system, we can usually have it installed in hours, not days.

How long does a central air conditioning unit last?

– Is your current air conditioner the right size for the job?
Often, builders and homeowners choose based on price, but an undersized HVAC works extra hard to keep your home cool. This shortens its life and drives up your electrical bill.

– Does your current air conditioner get seasonal tune-ups and filter changes?
If both answers are yes, it should last 12-15 years.

Can you install AC in a house that doesn’t have it?

Yes. If you have existing ductwork (your furnace blows air through vents) we can usually attach the air conditioning components to share the ductwork. If you have no ductwork, we either install new ductwork or install a ductless mini-split AC system that attaches to your wall and uses a remote control.

We’ll take a look, provide you with a free estimate and help you decide.

Do bigger air conditioning units perform better?

Not necessarily. It’s important to purchase the right size air conditioner for your home. If you buy an AC unit that’s too big, it will have short-run cycles. It will cool the air quickly, then shut off before it blows enough air to drain water from your system. This moisture causes mold and mildew in your home.

What is dual-zone air conditioning?

A dual-zone air conditioning system is a network of temperature sensors and duct dampers that regulates the amount of cooled air each room or “zone” receives throughout the day. Zoning technology allows homeowners to cool only the occupied areas of living space at any given time or to set different temperatures in different areas of the home.
Do you want to install a dual-zone air conditioning system in your home? Call us for a free estimate.

Do you offer hvac financing?

Yes. Payment options are as low as $0 down and $99/month.
Our lending partners make sure that every customer that wants or needs financing can get it. Learn more about your financing options.
