How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost?

July 18, 2016

The time has come when you have to purchase a new air conditioner. Nobody enjoys this day, and nobody wants to worry about budgeting for it, but sadly is comes with Oklahoma City homeownership. So where do you begin?

First, realize that the price of a new A/C system fluctuates based on several factors. The first is your lifestyle and the other residents in your home. Are there health conditions that will warrant a specific type of air cleaning system? Do the family members in the home have an issue with the heat or cold, or an affliction (such as Multiple Sclerosis) that would require the home to stay at a particular temperature or humidity level? What recreation takes place within the residence? These factors will help direct you to which A/C system is right for your.

The next thing to examine is your actual home. How many windows do you have and where do they face? What level of insulation is installed in the home and what is the efficiency level of the ductwork? Does the residence require (or do you desire) gas, electric, solar-power, etc? At Gordon's Service Experts, we will come out and evaluate your current set-up to go over the systems available considering your home’s structure and unique characteristics.

The third variable to think about is which business to use. Though one business may have the system you want at a cost you like, be careful and find out if they are licensed, bonded, and confirm they are insured just in case something should happen at your home. If a contractor were to become injured and the contractor was not insured, it’s possible you would be liable. At Gordon's Service Experts, we are not only bonded, licensed, and insured, but all of our workers go through a detailed background check, drug test, and are trained to work on all top brands of air conditioning systems. We also have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be comfortable in the work we deliver.

So, 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 determining a final budget, below are a few estimates.
