How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost?

July 18, 2016

It’s official; you have to purchase a new A/C system. Nobody looks forward to this day, and nobody wants to worry about budgeting for it, but sadly is comes with East Syracuse homeownership. So where on earth should you begin?

First, understand that the investment of a new air conditioning system fluctuates based on several factors. The first is your living situation and the other residents in your home. Are there health conditions that will necessitate a special type of air filtration system? Do the residents in the home have a sensitivity to warmth or coolness, or a condition (i.e., Multiple Sclerosis) that would require the home to stay at a set temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place within the home? The above details will help decide which A/C system is right for your family.

The following factor to take into consideration is your home itself. What is the number of windows within your home and where do they face? What level of insulation is presently in the residence and what level of efficiency is the ductwork? Does the home require (or do you prefer) solar-power, gas, electric, etc? At Falso Service Experts, we will pay you a visit and evaluate your house to provide the options available depending on your home’s design and unique traits.

The additional thing to consider is which business to use. Though one company may have the air conditioner you want at a budget you like, make sure you find out if they are licensed, bonded, and confirm they are insured in case something should occur at your home. If a tech were to get hurt and the business was not insured, it’s likely you would be held accountable. At Falso Service Experts, we are not only bonded, licensed, and insured, but all of our workers go through an extensive background check, drug test, and are qualified to work on all top brands of air conditioning systems. We also provide a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be confident in the work we provide.

Alright, alright, you’ve thought about all this but let’s get to the real question. How much is this going to set you back?

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