Effective AC Replacement 

If you’re thinking about AC replacement, you’ve probably given some thought to the question of how much it will cost you to get a new air conditioner installed. To assist you in making the choice that is optimal for your house, this article will examine the HVAC system components that go into determining the price of an air conditioner, among other things.

How Much Does It Cost to Replace an Air Conditioner?

The price to replace an air conditioner in a residential home can range anywhere from $4,350 to $16,095, depending on the model, and certainly whether your home requires more than one unit. This price includes the cost of labor as well as any permit fees. This particular price range also encompasses a wide range of system sizes and degrees of sophistication, including AC systems with variable rotational speeds.

The following are some of the factors that may have an impact on the cost of replacing your air conditioner:

  • Efficiency
  • Modifications to current system
  • Line set protection
  • Installation costs
  • Tax breaks 
  • The HVAC equipment that you will not be replacing
  • Power and storage capability of the system

The Importance of Air Conditioning Replacement

Because of the serious investment HVAC replacement requires, comparable consideration should be given to replacing your air conditioner as would be given to making major improvements to your home or purchasing a new vehicle. However, many homeowners start the process of looking into a new HVAC system without having any idea what the total installation costs will be or how it will be broken down into its component parts, including the AC unit. You need to have this critical information on hand whenever you are faced with the necessity of making a significant choice and investing a significant amount of money, which a new air conditioner definitely is.

There are some common factors that can affect the final price tag on your replacement HVAC system, even though the prices themselves will vary depending on the specifics of your home, including how energy efficient it is, as well as your current heating and cooling costs.

Costs & Accessories That Are Usual for Air Conditioning Replacement

When most people think about their new HVAC system, the first thing that comes to their mind is their air conditioning unit. However, replacing your existing HVAC system can often entail more than simply purchasing a new AC unit to replace the one you have. Let’s talk about some of the other aspects that play a role in determining the total cost of your new air conditioner replacement.

In most cases, installing an air conditioner will necessitate having the following things on hand:

  • Physical components 
  • Local permits
  • Expenses for electricity
  • Condensate drainage
  • Modification of the ductwork, if it is required

Why Does the Size of an AC Unit Matter When Installing or Replacing?

Your air conditioner’s ability to satisfy your cooling requirements is impacted by its capacity, also known as its “size.” A load calculation needs to be carried out by your HVAC technician in order for your home to be appropriately sized. This enables them to provide you with a recommendation regarding the central air system that will work best in your home.

During a load calculation, not only will the square footage of your home be taken into consideration, but also the characteristics that influence heat gain and loss. These characteristics include the number of windows and doors in your home, as well as their dimensions, as well as the height of your ceilings.

It is important to keep in mind that the size and power of your air conditioner are not necessarily the most important factors to consider when purchasing one for your home. An air conditioner will turn on and off an excessive amount if it is too large for the house. Because of this, it might not remove moisture effectively or cool properly, and can make for a terrible air conditioner installation investment.

Meanwhile, if you purchase an air conditioner that is too small for your home, it will have a high energy consumption rate and will not effectively remove moisture from the air. Because of these factors, there will never be a specific air conditioning solution that is “one size fits all”; not even for homes that are exactly the same size as one another.

When you increase your air conditioner’s capacity, the cost of the equipment you use may also rise. However, a system that is properly sized can help reduce the amount of money you spend on monthly energy bills and increase the level of comfort in your home. Also, you can extend the life of your air conditioner by preventing unnecessary switching between the on and off positions.

Matching Your Equipment Is Critical

When you think about replacing your heating and cooling system, your furnace is probably not one of the first things that comes to mind (people usually think “new AC system”). If, on the other hand, you are only replacing your air conditioner, you will almost certainly need to make sure that your new air conditioner is compatible with the heating system that you already have. Any HVAC installation will require this.

As an example, if you choose to install a variable-speed air conditioner but do not have a furnace unit that is compatible with it, this can make for big HVAC problems. In order to function properly, air conditioners that have variable-speed blower motors are required to have indoor blower motors that can rotate at varying speeds. In addition, because the blower motor for your system is housed inside the furnace or air handler, it is essential to ensure that both of these components are compatible with one another.

The following are some examples of other kinds of air conditioners:

  • Air conditioners with a single stage and only one setting, which is always set to the maximum capacity.
  • Air conditioners with two stages have two settings: the highest setting operates at 100% capacity, and the lower setting operates at a capacity that is typically around 70%. In general, two-stage air conditioners consume less power, which is one reason why they are more efficient than single-stage models.

In general, air conditioners with only one or two stages of operation and no variable-speed features are compatible with furnaces that only have one or two stages of operation.

AC Replacement Cost Ranges

The price to replace an air conditioner in a residential home can range anywhere from $4,350 to $16,095, depending on the model. This includes the labor costs as well as any permit fees. Tax credits, obviously, can make for additional cost savings.

This may seem like a large range of options, but it actually reflects the equally large range of variables and choices that are available to a homeowner, as we covered earlier in the discussion. On the other hand, we can narrow this overall cost range even further.

The following are the typical classifications for various types of air conditioning units:

Typical Central AC Unit

Single-stage cooling is the only option available on air conditioners with lower price tags. Even so, these cooling systems are still a dependable method of cooling your home and can save you money if you don’t intend to remain there for an extended period of time.

Prices for a typical central ac unit at the entry level can typically range from $4,350 to $9,000.

Mid-Range AC Unit

Air conditioners in the middle price range typically have a two-stage cooling system as one of their main benefits. If you intend to remain in your home for an extended period of time, investing in an air conditioner that falls somewhere in the middle of the price spectrum can be a better idea than settling for a lower end AC unit, if only for the additional benefit that two stage air conditioners provide.

Prices for air conditioners in the mid-range category typically range from $6,200 to $10,500.

Premium AC Unit

Cooling tends to be provided by high-end air conditioners in a variable-speed mode. If you want to address multiple problem areas in your home, you may find that investing in a high-end air conditioner is the best way to go. This is due to the fact that these air conditioners give you the most control over their respective systems, as well as enabling you to often tune the temperature of specific rooms, if necessary. They also tend to pair better with indoor air quality systems than lower end cooling systems.

The price range for premium air conditioners is typically between $8,200 and $14,095.

Obtaining Funding for Your Investment

If you have approved credit, you have a number of financing options to choose from in order to finance the purchase of a new air conditioner. We work with customers of all income ranges to provide financing options and special financing for any HVAC or AC system. There is also the possibility of making a partial payment with cash or a check and paying the balance with financing.

What Is the Best Option Regarding Price and Selection for You?

The only way to get an accurate estimate of how much it will cost to replace an air conditioner is to make an appointment for an in-home consultation with an experienced professional. However, if you are aware of the factors that can affect costs, you will be able to pose more pertinent inquiries and arrive at a choice that is more well-informed when the time comes.
