How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost?

July 18, 2016

The dreaded day has arrived and now you have to purchase a new air conditioning system. Nobody hopes for this day, and nobody wants to worry about budgeting for it, but sadly is comes with Daytona Beach homeownership. So where on earth should you begin?

First, know that the price of a new air conditioner varies based on multiple factors. The first is your living situation and the other residents in your home. Are there health issues that will call for a special type of air filtration equipment? Do the people living in the home have a sensitivity to the heat or cold, or a disorder (like Multiple Sclerosis) that would demand that the home stay at a specific temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place inside the house? All of these things will help direct you to which air conditioning system is right for your home.

The following factor to examine is your actual home. Do you have a lot of windows and which direction do they face? What level of insulation is installed in the home and what is the efficiency level of the ductwork? Does the residence require (or do you prefer) gas, electric, solar-power, etc? At All American Air Service Experts, we will come out and assess your current set-up to provide the choices available based on your home’s construction and unique characteristics.

The additional thing to think about is which business to choose. Though one business may have the air conditioner you want at a cost you like, take caution and find out if they are bonded, licensed, and confirm they are insured just in case something should occur at your home. If a technician were to become injured and the business was not insured, it’s possible you would be liable. At All American Air Service Experts, not only are we insured, licensed, and bonded, but all of our team go through a complete background check, drug test, and are skilled to work on all top brands of air conditioning systems. We also offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be comfortable in the work we deliver.

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

While all the factors above will go into determining a final cost, below are a few ballpark numbers.
