Air conditioner installation can be done by the homeowner or by a contractor of their choosing. The price of installing air conditioners varies greatly depending on the type, size, manufacturer, condition, and climate in the area. The price to install central air conditioners varies greatly depending on the type, size, manufacturer, condition, and location of the air conditioner. A new unit usually costs around three thousand dollars – sometimes as high as seven thousand – while a used one might be a little less than four thousand.
Other factors that will affect the cost factor include the quality of the air conditioner and the service provider. Bad installation will certainly increase the price of the unit, but so will a poor or slow electric furnace. Bad installation will also increase the risk of a fire and/or explosion. If you are not sure what kind of air conditioning system you need for your home then it would be wise to consult with a professional that knows all about air conditioning systems.
Some things to consider when considering installation is whether the furnace will be located in an attic or basement (with the possibility of additional ductwork), how many rooms will the air conditioner need to be installed, where the furnace will be installed, and if the unit will have a ductwork installed. Also, it will depend on how many phases of the programmable thermostat the furnace has. The most popular types of air conditioners today are those that are energy efficient and use Freon to cool down the air. These types of air conditioners are more expensive to install because they also need to use more energy and more ductwork to provide the same results as a more energy-efficient model.
