How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost?

July 18, 2016

It’s official; you have to get a new air conditioning system. Nobody enjoys this day, and nobody enjoys budgeting for it, but alas, ‘tis part of Dallas homeownership. So where to begin?

First, realize that the cost of a new AC fluctuates based on many factors. The first is your lifestyle and the other people residing in your home. Are there health ailments that will call for a special type of air cleaning equipment? Do the residents in the home have an issue with the heat or cold, or an affliction (like Multiple Sclerosis) that would that would result in the home needing to stay at a set temperature or humidity level? What activities take place inside the residence? These factors will help choose which air conditioning system is ideal for your family.

The second variable to take into consideration is your home itself. How many windows do you have and where do they face? What type of insulation is currently in the home and how efficient is the ductwork? Does the home require (or do you want) gas, electric, solar-power, etc? At Levy & Son Service Experts, we will come out and analyze your current set-up to help determine the systems available based on your home’s structure and unique traits.

The other thing to consider is which business to choose. Though one contractor may have the system you want at a budget you like, be careful and find out if they are licensed and bonded, and confirm they are insured in case something occurs at your house. If a tech were to get injured and the business was not insured, it’s probable you would be held accountable. At Levy & Son 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 trained to work on all major brands of air conditioning systems. We also have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be confident 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 cost?
