How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost?

July 18, 2016

It’s official; you have to purchase a new air conditioner. Nobody looks forward to this day, and nobody looks forward to budgeting for it, but sadly is comes with Oklahoma City homeownership. So where do you begin?

First, realize that the price of a new AC fluctuates based on many 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 a sensitivity to the cold or heat, or an affliction (like Multiple Sclerosis) that would that would result in the home needing to stay at a particular temperature or humidity level? What recreation takes place within the residence? All of these things will help direct you to which A/C system is best for your.

The second thing to examine is your actual home. How many windows do you have and which direction do they face? What level of insulation is installed in the house 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 pay you a visit and evaluate your current set-up to go over the systems available considering your home’s construction and unique traits.

The third variable to consider is which business to use. Though one business may have the system you want at a cost you like, take caution and find out if they are licensed, bonded, and confirm they are insured just in case something should happen at your home. If a technician were to become injured and the contractor was not insured, it’s possible you would be held accountable. 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 qualified to work on all top brands of air conditioners. We also provide a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be comfortable in the work we deliver.

So, you’ve considered all this but let’s answer the real question. How much is this going to set you back?

While all the factors above will go into deciding a final budget, below are a few ballpark numbers.
