How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost? 

The dreaded day has arrived and now you have to purchase a new A/C system. Nobody looks forward to this day, and nobody enjoys budgeting for it, but sadly is comes with the U.S. homeownership. So where do you begin?

First, know that the price of a new air conditioning system fluctuates based on multiple factors. The first is your living situation and the other residents in your home. Are there health issues that will require a special type of air filtration equipment? Do the people living in the home have a sensitivity to warmth or coolness, or a disorder (such as Multiple Sclerosis) that would that would result in the home needing to stay at a particular temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place within the residence? The above details will help direct you to which A/C system is best for your family.

The second thing to consider is your home itself. Do you have a lot of windows and which direction do they face? What type of insulation is presently in the residence and what level of efficiency is the ductwork? Does the home require (or do you prefer) electric, solar-power, gas, etc? At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we will come out and assess your house to help determine the choices available depending on your home’s construction and unique features.

The third variable to take into consideration is which business to use. Though one company may have the system you want at a price point you like, make sure you find out if they are licensed, bonded, and confirm they are insured in the event that something happens at your home. If a tech were to get hurt and the company was not insured, it’s probable you would be held accountable. At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, not only are we insured, licensed, and bonded, but all of our team go through a thorough background check, drug test, and are skilled to work on all leading brands of A/C systems. We also offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be assured in the work we provide.

So, you’ve thought about all this but let’s get to the real question. What is this going to set you back?

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

No bigger than 2000 square feet and usually only one story
