How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost?
It’s official; you have to purchase a new air conditioning system. Nobody hopes for this day, and nobody enjoys budgeting for it, but alas, ‘tis part of Philadelphia homeownership. So where on earth should you begin?
First, know that the investment 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 problems that will warrant a specific type of air filtration system? Do the people living in the home have any problems with warmth or coolness, or an affliction that would require the home to stay at a set temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place inside the residence? These factors will help decide which air conditioner is best for your.
The following factor to consider is your actual home. Do you have a lot of windows and which way do they face? What type of insulation is installed in the residence and how efficient is the ductwork? Does the house require (or do you want) gas, electric, solar-power, etc? At Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, we will go out and evaluate your current set-up to help determine the options available depending on your home’s design and unique traits.
The additional factor to take into consideration is which company to use. Though one company may have the system you want at a cost you like, take caution and find out if they are licensed and bonded, and confirm they are insured in case something should happen at your residence. If a contractor were to get injured and the business was not insured, it’s likely you would be liable. At Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, we are not only bonded, licensed, and insured, but all of our employees go through a complete background check, drug test, and are trained to work on all top brands of air conditioners. We also provide a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be assured in the work we do.
Alright, alright, you’ve thought about all this but let’s answer the real question. What is this going to set you back?
While all the factors above will go into giving you a final price, below are a few estimates.
