The dreaded day has arrived and now you have to replace your air conditioner. Nobody looks forward to this day, and nobody looks forward to budgeting for it, but unfortunately, it is part of the U.S. homeownership. So where do you begin?
First, understand that the price of a new AC varies based on many factors. The first is your routine and the other people residing in your home. Are there health conditions that will require a particular type of air filtration system? Do the people living in the home have a sensitivity to the heat or cold, or a disorder (like Multiple Sclerosis) that would require the home to stay at a particular temperature or humidity level? What recreation takes place in the home? All of these things will help decide which air conditioning system is ideal for your home.
The following thing to consider is the home itself. Do you have a lot of windows and which direction do they face? What type of insulation is currently in the residence and how efficient is the ductwork? Does the residence require (or do you prefer) gas, electric, solar-power, etc? At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we will pay you a visit and assess your house to provide the systems available considering your home’s structure and unique characteristics.
The other factor to think about is which business to choose. Though one contractor may have the system you want at a budget you like, be thorough and find out if they are licensed and bonded, and confirm they are insured in the event that something happens at your house. If a tech were to get hurt and the company was not insured, it’s probable you would be liable. At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, not only are we insured, licensed, and bonded, but all of our employees go through a thorough background check, drug test, and are qualified to work on all top brands of air conditioners. We also offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be comfortable in the work we do.
So, you’ve thought about all this but let’s answer the real question. What is this going to set you back?
While all the factors above will go into determining a final price, below are a few ranges.
