Where is the best place to locate my thermostat?
The thermostat must be mounted where the temperature of the surrounding air is average for the entire space being heated or cooled, generally on an inside wall away from drafts.
How can I reduce my utility bills?
Make sure your home is well insulated and ventilated. You can do this by adding additional insulation to your attic, weather stripping your doors and windows, caulking cracks and taping ducts. You can also install High SEER a/c and High AFUE furnace equipment.
What is a SEER number?
Central air conditioners are labeled with a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) number. The higher the SEER number, the more efficient the unit. Although 13.0 is suitable for most locations, a higher SEER number could still save you money. 16 SEER air conditioning systems are eligible for Federal Tax Credits of up to $1,500.
What is an R-value?
The R-value is the capacity of an insulating material to resist heat flow. The higher the R-value, the more effective the insulator.
How can I calculate the annual operating cost for my air conditioning unit?
Many variables factor into the answer to this question, such as: how humid your climate is; how hot your climate is; how old your unit is; and how well ventilated your home is.

What Our Customers Say:
Phillip at Vader Air is awesome. He's extremely professional, honest, reliable and helpful. I was worried that my air conditioning problem was going to be big and expensive but Phillip assured me that it was an easy fix (and it was). I wouldn't take my business anywhere else.—Laura W. 7/27/2014
It's always hard to tell from reviews on these kind of service based businesses what you will get but we were so pleasantly surprised by how fast and affordable Vader was. Thank you Yelp Familia for the help!—Anita W. 1/2/2014
Right in the middle of the holidays we were in a pinch to get some work done on our AC units. After a quick call to Phillip, he gave a great quote and said he could be out to our house ASAP. We called around some other places but he easily beat out the rest of the bids so we scheduled him. He came over, did the job in a jiff and explained it all along the way so we knew what to watch out for in case of any problems in the future.
Bottom Line: exceptionally professional service and value! Would definitely call them again...and again. My wife and I have started doing landscaping in our backyard and decided to relocate the AC unit (condenser or compressor?) in order to make more space in our small yard. I estimated that it would be an easy job and that the unit only needed to be moved about 8 feet over. This involves physically moving it, extending the electrical line, and extending/braising 2 high pressure copper pipes.—Dave L. 12/19/2013
Over the phone, Phillip gave me an estimate for $475 and this was the best price in town so we made an appointment for the next day. When he arrived he explained that it actually needed to be relocated 12 feet. I agreed based on logistics, regulations, etc. I was initially afraid that the cost would go up considerably. However, being the nice guy, Phillip agreed to hold to the original price even though he had to drive back to his work in order to get longer piping...
Like Magic, Phillip transformed our condo from a sauna into a meat locker. What a difference it has made in our lives. My wife and I are no longer being drained of energy by the near stifling heat of just being home in the summer. We're so comfortable in our cool comfortable condo that we are being nice to each other. Thanks Phillip Walker you are Da Man.—John P.
Girlfriend's large carrier ac system stopped working.The exterior fan stopped spinning and circulating the cool air. Called Vader at 3:30 pm, made an appointment for 4:30m. Job done by 5:30pm FAST, knowledgeable, fair price and a really nice guy. Would recommend them in a minute.—William D.

Just wow. Fast, HONEST, super nice and professional. I don't see how you could find better. Save your time, call Vader.—Melody G.
Philip showed up as scheduled, spent a while telling us what we needed and explained (in a Lot of detail) the concept of air conditioning. He was knowledgeable and friendly. He also gave us good advice about how we didn't really need to do anything besides just a general servicing for our air conditioner. Would recommend and use again.—Meghna P.
Easy, fast, and personable. We used Vader to get a 2nd opinion after our heater broke down during the cold spell. The repairman diagnosed and fixed the problem within 10 mins! It was actually a much simpler issue than the first company diagnosed (and they wanted to charge much more $ too). Also, Vader was able to make a same day call. Much appreciated!—Matt E.
