SummertimeNo AC Blues
It matters on what city/county you are in. But frankly, I think alot of contractors who work solo , will probably not bother pulling a permit. Whatever system you get , try to get it with 410a freon. Because the cost of r-22 is crazy now! You know you would be surprised the cost of a new system these days. If you just get a 13 seer unit and probably like rightit is saying finance it. It maybe not that bad. Your right we in florida can't live without AC. Also one suggestion I can give you, see if you can find your local vocational school that has hvac courses. Go speak to the instructor of the course and maybe he can send out some of his students to help you out. You can pay them something and plus they are gaining experience also in the real world. You can also find old-stock new unit on craigslist also. May want to look in to that. Only thing is those units will most likely not have any kinda of warranty. If you do get it done from a licensed contractor, which ever brand you choose to have installed will most likely come with 10 yr warranty on parts. Just keep that in mind.
Let's light the fire and burn the tires!
