For one reason or another, your HVAC system stopped working and you learned that it’s going to require replacement. Obviously, one of the first questions to pop into your mind is, “How much is this going to cost me?” After all, air conditioning installation doesn’t exactly have a reputation for being inexpensive, right?
Well, the reality is that exactly how much it costs to install your HVAC system depends on several important factors. To help make the process easier, we’ve broken this blog post into different sections, depending on the situation in which you find yourself.
You Already Have an HVAC System in Place
Obviously, this is an ideal scenario and is most common in this region of the country. We’ll simply attach the new unit(s) to your existing system, make a few tweaks to ensure everything fits and operates optimally, and have you back up and running in no time.
In an instance like this, you might expect to pay $3,000 to $4,000, including all parts and labor. Clearly, overall costs can vary widely depending on the size of your home, the brand you choose, and more.
This Will Be Your First Central Air Conditioning System
If your home doesn’t already have a central heating or cooling system in place (a relative rarity in this part of Florida), a general rule of thumb is that installation costs could double. Why? Because not only will you require a new unit, but you’ll also need new ductwork, and possibly even electrical work (this could be as minor as running a new wire for the thermostat, to completely updating your system to handle the new load).
Would You Like an Installation Estimate?
If you were to ask a contractor, “How much will it cost to redo my kitchen?” or “What’s the price for remodeling a bathroom?” their answer will depend on your wants and needs, your budget, and a lot of other important criteria. Well, when it comes wit air conditioner installation, it’s the same story.
