How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost?

July 18, 2016

It’s official; you have to replace your air conditioner. Nobody enjoys this day, and nobody enjoys budgeting for it, but unfortunately, it is part of Dallas homeownership. So where do you begin?

First, realize that the cost of a new A/C system fluctuates based on several factors. The first is your living situation and the other people residing in your home. Are there health ailments that will call for a specific 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 require the home to stay at a set temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place within the residence? These factors will help choose which air conditioner is ideal for your family.

The second variable to take into consideration is the home itself. What is the number of windows within your home and which direction 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 provide the systems available depending on your home’s structure and unique characteristics.

The other thing to consider is which business to use. Though one company may have the system you want at a price point you like, take caution and find out if they are licensed and bonded, and confirm they are insured in the event that something occurs at your home. If a tech were to get injured and the business was not insured, it’s probable you would be liable. At Levy & Son Service Experts, not only are we insured, licensed, and bonded, but all of our team go through an extensive 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 assured in the work we deliver.

Okay, okay, you’ve thought about all this but let’s ask the real question. How much is this going to cost?

While all the factors above will go into giving you a final budget, below are a few ranges.
