How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost? 

The dreaded day has arrived and now you have to replace your A/C system. Nobody enjoys this day, and nobody looks forward to budgeting for it, but sadly is comes with Philadelphia homeownership. So where on earth should you begin

First, realize that the investment of a new A/C system varies based on multiple factors. The first is your living situation and the people living in your home. Are there health problems that will call for a particular type of air cleaning system? Do the family members in the home have a sensitivity to the heat or cold, or a condition that would that would result in the home needing to stay at a particular temperature or humidity level? What activities take place in the home? All of these things will help determine which air conditioner is ideal for your. 

The following factor to assess is your actual home. How many windows do you have and which way do they face? What level of insulation is installed in the home and what level of efficiency is the ductwork? Does the house require (or do you want) electric, solar-power, gas, etc? At Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, we will come out and analyze your current set-up to go over the systems available considering your home’s structure and unique characteristics. 

The additional variable to consider is which company to call. Though one contractor may have the equipment you want at a cost you like, take caution and find out if they are bonded, licensed, and confirm they are insured in the event that something should happen at your house. If a tech were to become injured and the business was not insured, it’s possible you would be held accountable. At Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, not only are we insured, licensed, and bonded, but all of our team go through an extensive background check, drug test, and are qualified to work on all top brands of air conditioning systems. We also have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be confident in the work we provide. 

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

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