How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost Published on July 18, 2016 The time has come when you have to get a new air conditioning system. Nobody hopes for this day, and nobody looks forward to budgeting for it, but sadly is comes with Kitchener homeownership. So where do you begin? First, realize that the cost of a new air conditioner varies based on many factors. The first is your lifestyle and the other residents in your home. Are there health issues that will warrant a particular type of air filtration system? Do the people living in the home have a sensitivity to the cold or heat, or an affliction (such as Multiple Sclerosis) that would require the home to stay at a specific temperature or humidity level? What activities take place within the residence? The above details will help decide which A/C system is right for your family. The second thing to examine is the home itself. What is the number of windows within your home and where do they face? How much insulation is presently in the residence and what is the efficiency level of the ductwork? Does the residence require (or do you desire) solar-power, gas, electric, etc? At Hammond Plumbing & Heating, we will come out and assess your home to go over the systems available depending on your home’s construction and unique traits. The additional variable to consider is which business to call. Though one business may have the equipment you want at a cost you like, take caution and find out if they are licensed, bonded, and confirm they are insured in the event that something occurs at your house. If a tech were to get hurt and the business was not insured, it’s likely you would be held responsible. At Hammond Plumbing & Heating, we are not only bonded, licensed, and insured, but all of our workers go through a thorough background check, drug test, and are trained to work on all leading brands of air conditioning systems. We also offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be assured in the work we do. So, you’ve researched all this but let’s get to the real question. How much is this going to set you back? While all the factors above will go into determining a final price, below are a few ballpark numbers. Ranch-Style or Smaller Residence Less than 2000 ft2 and typically a single story Average cost of an air conditioning system: $6,000 - $15,000 With approved financing: $40 - $250 per month Common Suburban House Less than 3500 square feet and usually between one and three stories Estimatedcost of an air conditioning system: $8,000 - $25,000 Including approved financing: $100 - $500 monthly Luxury House Over 3500 square feet and varied amount of stories Approximate cost of an air conditioning system: $18,000 - $60,000+ Including approved financing: $250+ monthly Approximate pricing may change depending on geographic location, personal lifestyle, system settings, system maintenance, and installation of system and duct system.
