Air Conditioner Prices

New AC Installations: What Does a New Air Conditioner Cost in Fort Worth?

How much a new air conditioning, heating, or air filtration system will cost varies greatly depending on many factors. These variables generally fall into three categories:

  1. Lifestyle Factors:
    • The health conditions of the home's inhabitants (allergies, respiratory issues, and sensitivity to surroundings)
    • How the residents "feel" comfortable (partiality to cooler or warmer temperatures)
    • Hobbies and activities happening inside the house (musical instruments, crafts, wine)

  2. Building and Environmental Factors:
    • The number, style, and size of windows currently in place, the direction the home faces, and age of the home
    • Type of building, roofing, siding, ductwork, and quantity of insulation present
    • Geographic climate, lot size, city regulations and surrounding atmosphere including average humidity, nearby industries, available land, and codes required
    • Utilities desired or available; solar, geothermal, gas, electric, LP, oil

  3. Contractor Risk Factors:
    • Contractor licensing, insurance, bonding, and financial constancy
    • Legality, ability, and certification level of the employees installing the heating and cooling systems
    • Satisfaction Guarantees and service level (obtainability and dedication to customer priorities)

All of these elements and more help to dictate the type, size, and level of work required to properly heat and cool a home, which normally goes into the price of the new system.

Due to the fact that every home’s heating and cooling system must be fully custom developed and installed, it is quite tough for quality contractors like Calverley Service Experts to give a specific estimate without understanding all the factors on-site that can be found during an in-home comfort analysis. However, we can recommend broad ranges of the possible HVAC system price based on the general size of a home that isn’t yet 30 years old. Remember, 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 comparable to vehicle classes. Systems normally fall into big (and sometimes incorrect) ranges of "economy", "mid-level", and "premium". However, because every homeowner is unique, each new heating and cooling system is manually installed, and because of all the prior factors mentioned, the process and ultimate pricing of a heating and cooling system could be equated to choosing vehicle "Options."

Home Comfort Options

Air quality control systems are essential for homeowners with infants and children, people in the home with allergy or respiratory problems, or climate control issues that necessitate humidification controls. Thermostat controls are also a big part of the home comfort puzzle, and a large choice of mobile and Wi-Fi options are now available.

Other home comfort options include adding the necessary amount of insulation or redesigning, correcting, and cleaning ductwork to make sure the system operates efficiently. Some choices can be purchased as a bundle, but quite a few of these choices must be determined through a complete Home Comfort Analysis, which is a free service we offer.

All of these options must be through through 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 inadequate for the home and its residents.
