New AC Installations: What Does a New Air Conditioner Cost in Oklahoma City? How much a new air conditioning, heating, or air filtration system will cost varies greatly depending on a host of 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 (partiality to cooler or warmer temperatures) Hobbies and activities happening inside the house (musical instruments, crafts, wine) Building and Environmental Factors: The number, type, and size of windows you currently have, the direction the home faces, and age of the home Type of building, roofing, siding, ductwork, and level of insulation present Geographic climate, lot size, city regulations and surrounding setting including typical humidity, close-by industries, available land, and codes required Utilities desired or available; solar, geothermal, gas, electric, LP, oil Contractor Risk Factors: Contractor licensing, insurance, bonding, and financial strength Legitimacy, ability, and certification level of the employees installing the furnaces and air conditioners Satisfaction Guarantees and service level (availability and devotion to customer service) All of these elements and more help to dictate the style, size, and level of work necessary to properly heat and cool a home, which usually goes into the price of the new system.

Because every home’s heating and cooling system must be completely custom created and installed, it is very difficult for quality contractors like Gordon's Service Experts to offer a specific estimate without understanding all the factors on-site that are uncovered during an in-home comfort analysis. However, we can recommend broad ranges of the probable HVAC system price based on the basic size of a home under 30 years old. It’s important to note that, even the price ranges above could vary much more, contingent on all the factors and circumstances of a specific home and homeowner. How HVAC Systems Are Priced by the Manufacturer (MSRP) Central heating and cooling systems are similar to vehicle classes. Systems normally fall into broad (and sometimes incorrect) ranges of "economy", "mid-level", and "premium". However, because every homeowner is different, 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 choosing vehicle "Options." Home Comfort Options Home comfort Options include size and efficiency, and also include 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 a big part of the home comfort puzzle, and a large variety of mobile and Wi-Fi options are out there. Other home comfort choices include adding the necessary amount of insulation or redesigning, correcting, and cleaning ductwork to be sure the system operates efficiently. Some selections can be bought as a package, but a lot of these options must be decided through a complete Home Comfort Analysis, which is a courtesy service we have. All of these options need to 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 insufficient for the home and its occupants.
