How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost? 

The time has come when you have to get a new air conditioner. Nobody enjoys this day, and nobody wants to worry about budgeting for it, but unfortunately, it is part of the U.S. homeownership. So where on earth should you begin?

First, understand that the investment of a new air conditioner differs based on many factors. The first is your routine and the people living in your home. Are there health issues that will call for a particular type of air filtration equipment? Do the family members in the home have an issue with warmth or coolness, or a condition (such as Multiple Sclerosis) that would require the home to stay at a set temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place within the home? These factors will help determine which A/C system is right for your family.

The following variable to consider is your actual home. Do you have a lot of windows and where do they face? What type of insulation is presently in the house and what level of efficiency is the ductwork? Does the home require (or do you desire) solar-power, gas, electric, etc? At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we will pay you a visit and evaluate your home to help determine the choices available considering your home’s structure and unique characteristics.

The third thing to consider is which business to call. Though one contractor may have the air conditioner you want at a cost you like, take caution and find out if they are licensed and bonded, and confirm they are insured just in case something should happen at your house. If a technician were to get injured and the company was not insured, it’s probable you would be liable. At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, not only are we insured, licensed, and bonded, but all of our employees go through an extensive background check, drug test, and are qualified to work on all top brands of A/C systems. We also have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be assured in the work we do.

So, you’ve considered all this but let’s get to the real question. What is this going to cost?

While all the details above will go into deciding a final price, below are a few ranges.
