I was about to start a new topic but after seeing this thread I had preferred replying here. I have hired  HVAC Houston two weeks ago for ac related issues. They had certified and experienced experts that offers all type of ac related services. So, anyone who is looking for an ac repair company they can call them.

Sounds like a job for WD-40 and a couple of bungee cords.

So you hired them two weeks ago, and as a parting gift they gave you a company email that you used to register on this site. Nice.

Someone here on the board has an AC biz that I used a few years back and they were fantastic. Can’t think of the users name

Once in Yamsylvania, we had the potato famine. Which did not upset us because, hey, we eat only yams! Then we realized it is better to starve on potatoes than eat yams. We became so poor we had to raise monkeys for their fur. OK, we raised them for their pleasant smell and many tasty parasites. The kids today, tell them about parasite stew, and they look at you like you're some kind of nutty man, crazed from yam poisoning.

Maybe gibraltar - he's helped out quite few on here

If anyone needs commercial AC repairs in any Texas metro area, let me know. You won't get a cheap price but you will get top notch service.

I might be in the market.  We have 3 AC units and the largest one is like 20+ years old.  Having a $700-900 electric bill has caused us to think maybe it needs replacing.  Also the thermostats aren’t likely reading correctly in some rooms so we have them all adjusted wonky like 83 here, 76 there and one that reads 28F/0C all the time so it doesn’t ever kick on.

I see stuff online for like $7000 to replace one, is that a reasonable price?

If you are replacing all 3 then prepare thy butthole for a $25K or more fucking.

We do commercial work so our rates are twice what you would typically pay for residential service. I don't even call our guys for service at our house - I use these guys https://www.colonyac.com/

If you could get a good company and a good unit, $7k seems like a very reasonable price but I am guessing that is for a builders grade unit and the perfect install situation. You are probably going to be quoted closer to $10k per.

Materials cost for the 4 ton 16 Seer Trane split system we put in a few years back at our place was about $3000. I paid one of our  techs $1000 cash and helped him with the install.

If you have old thermostats, replacing them is easy and cheap. I got a honeywell wifi one for around $60 that, once it was setup, has been rock solid.

I have some odd system that is all tied in together and apparently there is a central control that allows to open and close 16 zones or something.  45 years and this is my first time living in AC. 

Statnet is the current units and supposedly there is a master control unit somewhere to partition it into 16 zones.  Add in this, the odd entertainment system and the shitload of security cameras and secret rooms, this house is kinda...odd

If you have a true zoned setup then you may have bad damper motors.  that would explain why the house doesn't cool properly.

Maybe so.  Might call someone and get them out to have a look and get a quote.  The current big unit is like 13 seer or whatever so it is old and likely not efficient either.

Need to get a security company out too and figure out why the cameras done seem to have power

All that shit is over my head. Gibraltar is still around but probably busy as shit with the heat of the summer. Maybe he can offer some advice.

One quick note: If you have 3 units and 3 thermostats then you have zero zones.

My two story house is zoned on the first floor.  The master bedroom/bath has a thermostat and the rest of the downstairs living area has a thermostat.  Basically the downstair unit kicks on depending on which thermostat is calling for cooling/heating.  The ducts that lead to those areas have damper motors in them that open the ducts which allow the air to flow.

We have had a historical problem with one of the dampers going bad for the main living area.  When that duct does not open the other ducts/registers downstairs manage to compensate and keep the living room comfortable.  When that motor is working the living room turns into an icebox.  That is the effect a bad motor can have on the balance of an area from a cooling/heating perspective.

We have a ton of thermostats.  Downstairs: Family room, kitchen, office, M bedroom, M bath (the 28F one).  Upstairs:movie room, play room, 3 upstairs bedrooms all have one too.  Maybe more that I’m missing.

The closet in the M bath that I use is somehow tied into the thermostat in the office and gets cold as FUCK.  Like, an ice box.  Much colder than the office but it is controlled by that thermostat it seems.

So like 10k?  Just a ballpark figure is all I'm looking for.  I plan to be in this house for 20 years or more, so replacing it with a new, higher efficiency one should be a good investment.  Will give peace of mind and should save some money on electric bills each month?

Really depends on how in-depth the zone system gets in terms of problems. Mostly they are a shit show if it's all that old. In general there isn't nearly enough information to give a "guy on the internet said" kind of price.

A lot of these dealers are going to recommend the high end inverter system with the variable speed indoor for zoned equipment...that's 15k and up. And then they will also sell you a new zone controller and dampers...

I would absolutely find you a company that knows zones. Personally I'm anti zone...I'd rather size and design the system right instead of supposedly saving on energy costs on zones that break often.

If you are truly spending 800 a month on electric...you need to run to a good dealer. Surely someone can find out why. You might have strip heat coming in with the AC for example...it happens.
