How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost? 

It’s official; you have to replace your A/C system. Nobody enjoys this day, and nobody enjoys budgeting for it, but alas, ‘tis part of the U.S. homeownership. So where to begin?

First, understand that the investment of a new A/C system differs based on multiple factors. The first is your routine and the people living in your home. Are there health conditions that will require a special type of air cleaning system? Do the family members in the home have an issue with warmth or coolness, or a disorder (such as Multiple Sclerosis) that would require the home to stay at a set temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place within the residence? All of these things will help choose which air conditioning system is right for your family.

The next factor to take into consideration is the actual home. How many windows do you have and which way do they face? How much insulation is currently in the residence and how efficient is the ductwork? Does the house require (or do you want) electric, solar-power, gas, etc? At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we will come out and evaluate your home to go over the choices available considering your home’s structure and unique characteristics.

The additional variable to consider is which business to choose. Though one company may have the system you want at a cost you like, make sure you find out if they are bonded, licensed, and confirm they are insured in the event that something should happen at your home. If a tech were to become injured and the contractor was not insured, it’s probable you would be held accountable. At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, not only are we licensed, bonded, and insured, but all of our workers go through a thorough background check, drug test, and are qualified to work on all top brands of A/C systems. We also provide a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be assured in the work we provide.

So, you’ve considered 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 determining a final budget, below are a few ballpark numbers.
