How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost?

July 18, 2016

The time has come when you have to replace your air conditioner. Nobody hopes for this day, and nobody enjoys budgeting for it, but sadly is comes with Jackson homeownership. So where to begin?

First, know that the cost of a new AC fluctuates based on several factors. The first is your routine and the other residents in your home. Are there health issues that will call for a specific type of air cleaning equipment? Do the residents in the home have a sensitivity to warmth or coolness, or a condition (such as Multiple Sclerosis) that would require the home to stay at a pre-determined temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place within the residence? These factors will help determine which A/C system is best for your.

The following factor to examine is your actual home. How many windows do you have and where do they face? How much insulation is installed in the house and how efficient is the ductwork? Does the home require (or do you prefer) electric, solar-power, gas, etc? At Comfortech Service Experts , we will come out and assess your home to provide the systems available depending on your home’s structure and unique characteristics.

The third factor to think about is which business to use. Though one company may have the system you want at a price point you like, be thorough and find out if they are licensed, bonded, and confirm they are insured just in case something occurs at your house. If a technician were to get hurt and the business was not insured, it’s probable you would be held responsible. At Comfortech Service Experts , we are not only bonded, licensed, and insured, but all of our employees go through a thorough background check, drug test, and are skilled to work on all top brands of air conditioning systems. We also provide a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be confident in the work we deliver.

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