How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost?

July 18, 2016

It’s official; you have to get a new A/C system. Nobody looks forward to this day, and nobody wants to worry about budgeting for it, but alas, ‘tis part of Fort Worth homeownership. So where to begin?

First, understand that the investment of a new AC fluctuates based on several factors. The first is your living situation and the other people residing in your home. Are there health ailments that will warrant a particular type of air cleaning system? Do the residents in the home have a sensitivity to warmth or coolness, or a condition (such as Multiple Sclerosis) that would demand that the home stay at a pre-determined temperature or humidity level? What activities take place in the residence? All of these things will help determine which air conditioner is right for your home.

The next variable to examine is your actual home. How many windows do you have and which direction do they face? How much insulation is installed in the home and how efficient is the ductwork? Does the residence require (or do you desire) electric, solar-power, gas, etc? At Calverley Service Experts, we will pay you a visit and analyze your home to go over the systems available considering your home’s design and unique traits.

The other variable to consider is which business to use. Though one business may have the equipment 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 house. If a contractor were to get hurt and the business was not insured, it’s possible you would be held responsible. At Calverley Service Experts, not only are we licensed, bonded, and insured, but all of our employees go through a detailed background check, drug test, and are skilled to work on all leading brands of A/C systems. We also have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be confident in the work we do.

Alright, alright, you’ve researched all this but let’s answer the real question. What is this going to set you back?

While all the variables above will go into determining a final budget, below are a few estimates.
