Design of your system is important

Choosing the right air conditioning company is a must. I recently went to a site inspection prior to quoting. When speaking with my client I ask if they had any other quotes. I then asked what design was offered. The house was not your standard house very large in fact. 2 large systems were installed when I won the job. The other air conditioning companies that had quoted design a system that would not work. The reason being they had not selected the right air conditioning vent to suit the application. I was not the cheapest quote. But I explained to the customer why my design would work and the other quotes would not. The system was recently commissioned and the client was very happy. Experience in design is important.
