How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost?

July 18, 2016

The time has come when you have to purchase a new A/C system. Nobody enjoys 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 many factors. The first is your living situation and the people living in your home. Are there health conditions that will warrant 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 that would result in the home needing to stay at a particular temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place within the house? 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. How many windows do you have and where do they face? How much insulation is presently in the residence and how efficient is the ductwork? Does the house require (or do you desire) solar-power, gas, electric, etc? At Falso Service Experts, we will come out and assess your house to provide the options available depending on your home’s design and unique traits.

The additional thing to think about is which business to use. Though one contractor may have the air conditioner you want at a price point you like, make sure you find out if they are bonded, licensed, and confirm they are insured in the event that something happens at your house. If a tech were to get injured and the business was not insured, it’s probable you would be liable. At Falso Service Experts, not only are we licensed, bonded, and insured, but all of our workers go through a complete background check, drug test, and are trained to work on all major brands of air conditioning systems. We also provide a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be assured in the work we do.

Okay, okay, you’ve considered all this but let’s ask the real question. What is this going to set you back?
