Installing a New Air Conditioner

Air Conditioner Installation Cost Factors

It is like your kitchen, roof or floor updates. When looking into it, there are plenty of factors that can increase or decrease your central air installation cost. Most of the facts are not controllable.



Depending on how your home was built, your insulation including windows and doors can play a role into the air conditioning cost. Older homes are letting air escape through one of these factors. This means your air conditioner is working harder than it has to. This will cause you to spend more on your energy bills than you need.



This can sometimes be a factor with older homes. When a new air conditioner is installed, it requires air ducts to carry the air throughout your home. We have noticed with the new systems, new ductwork has to be installed because of the new technology. Needing new ductwork can cause the installation to increase dramatically.


Type of Air Conditioner

Depending on what you are wanting you can get an air conditioner that is very efficient and saves you money on your energy bills. These newer systems can cost more than just getting and average system. The newer systems can also help with air quality in your home.

I highly recommend you find a qualified HVAC tech like No Problem Heating & Cooling.  Spending the extra money will give you the peace of mind knowing that when something does happen, you will be taken care of.


Size of Work Space

The location of your Air Conditioner inside your house can be a factor in the pricing. A big air conditioner is not going to fit into a small space. The company will have to work within the space they have available. The price and type of system you can use will vary within this.


Is it cheaper to repair my AC unit or replace it?

Restoring or replacing an aging unit can get expensive. Invest in a new model if your utility bills are rising and you notice uneven airflow and temperatures throughout your property. If one room is cooler than another is, consider a total replacement. If the air conditioner is relatively new and still within its age range, it is more cost-effective to get a contractor to repair it.
