New AC Installations: What Does a New Air Conditioner Cost in Mint Hill? How much a new air conditioning, heating, or air filtration system will cost varies greatly depending on many factors. These variables generally fall into a few categories: Lifestyle Factors: The health conditions of the home's occupants (allergies, respiratory issues, and sensitivity to surroundings) How the inhabitants "feel" comfortable (liking to cooler or warmer temperatures) Hobbies and activities occurring inside the house (musical instruments, crafts, wine) Building and Environmental Factors: The number, design, and size of windows you currently have, the direction the home faces, and age of the home Style of building, roofing, siding, ductwork, and amount of insulation present Geographic climate, lot size, city regulations and surrounding atmosphere including regular humidity, neighboring industries, available land, and codes required Utilities wanted or available; solar, geothermal, gas, electric, LP, oil Contractor Risk Factors: Contractor licensing, insurance, bonding, and financial constancy Legality, skill, and certification level of the employees installing the furnaces and air conditioners Satisfaction Guarantees and service level (accessibility and devotion to customer satisfaction) All of these aspects and more help to determine the type, size, and level of work required to appropriately heat and cool a home, which normally goes into the expense associated with the new system.

Since every home’s heating and cooling system must be fully custom designed and installed, it is quite difficult for quality contractors like Komfort Air to offer a specific estimate without knowing all the factors on-site that can be found during an in-home comfort analysis. However, we can recommend broad ranges of the probable HVAC system price based on the general size of a home under 30 years old. It’s important to note that, even the price ranges above could vary much more, depending on all the factors and circumstances of a certain home and homeowner. How HVAC Systems Are Priced by the Manufacturer (MSRP) Central heating and cooling systems are like vehicle classes. Systems typically fall into broad (and sometimes inaccurate) ranges of "economy", "mid-level", and "premium". However, because every homeowner is unique, each new heating and cooling system is manually installed, and because of all the prior factors noted, the process and ultimate pricing of a heating and cooling system could be equated to selecting vehicle "Options." Home Comfort Options Home comfort Options include size and efficiency, in addition to air quality control, such as the efficiency of air cleaners and air filters. Air quality control systems are essential for homeowners with infants and children, people in the home with allergy or respiratory issues, or climate control issues that necessitate humidification controls. Thermostat controls are also an important part of the home comfort puzzle, and a large selection of mobile and Wi-Fi options are now available. Other home comfort possibilities include adding the recommended amount of insulation or redesigning, correcting, and cleaning ductwork to ensure the system performs efficiently. Some selections can be purchased as a package, but a lot of these options must be figured out through a complete Home Comfort Analysis, which is a free service we have. All of these options should be considered very carefully, since the best air conditioner or furnace can’t correctly control the comfort of the home if the duct work, attic insulation, or air filter is deficient for the home and its residents.
