How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost?

July 18, 2016

The time has come when you have to get a new air conditioning system. Nobody enjoys this day, and nobody wants to worry about budgeting for it, but alas, ‘tis part of Charlotte homeownership. So where do you begin?

First, realize that the price of a new A/C system differs based on multiple factors. The first is your routine and the other residents in your home. Are there health conditions that will call for a particular type of air cleaning system? Do the residents in the home have a sensitivity to warmth or coolness, or a condition (like Multiple Sclerosis) that would require the home to stay at a specific temperature or humidity level? What recreation takes place inside the home? These factors will help direct you to which air conditioning system is ideal for your home.

The following thing to consider is the home itself. How many windows do you have and which direction do they face? How much insulation is installed in the residence and what level of efficiency is the ductwork? Does the residence require (or do you prefer) gas, electric, solar-power, etc? At Komfort Air Service Experts, we will pay you a visit and evaluate your current set-up to go over the choices available depending on your home’s structure and unique traits.

The other thing to think about is which business to choose. Though one business may have the air conditioner you want at a price point you like, make sure you find out if they are licensed, bonded, and confirm they are insured just in case something happens at your house. If a tech were to get hurt and the business was not insured, it’s probable you would be liable. At Komfort Air Service Experts, we are not only bonded, licensed, and insured, but all of our workers go through a complete background check, drug test, and are trained to work on all major brands of air conditioning systems. We also offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be assured in the work we deliver.

Alright, alright, you’ve thought about all this but let’s answer the real question. What is this going to cost?

While all the factors above will go into deciding a final price, below are a few estimates.
