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 conditioner. Nobody hopes for this day, and nobody looks forward to budgeting for it, but sadly is comes with Daytona Beach homeownership. So where on earth should you begin?

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

The following thing to examine is your actual home. Do you have a lot of windows and where 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 desire) gas, electric, solar-power, etc? At All American Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, we will pay you a visit and evaluate your current set-up to provide the choices available depending on your home’s structure and unique characteristics.

The additional factor to think about is which business to use. Though one business may have the air conditioner you want at a cost you like, be careful and find out if they are licensed, bonded, and confirm they are insured just in case something happens at your house. If a technician were to become injured and the company was not insured, it’s possible you would be liable. At All American Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, not only are we insured, licensed, and bonded, but all of our employees go through an extensive 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.

Okay, okay, you’ve considered 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 cost, below are a few estimates.
