How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost?

July 18, 2016

It’s official; you have to purchase a new air conditioning system. Nobody hopes for this day, and nobody wants to worry about budgeting for it, but unfortunately, it is part of Wheeling homeownership. So where on earth should you begin?

First, realize that the price of a new air conditioning system varies based on several factors. The first is your lifestyle and the people living in your home. Are there health ailments that will call for a particular type of air filtration equipment? Do the people living in the home have any problems with warmth or coolness, or a condition (like Multiple Sclerosis) that would demand that the home stay at a pre-determined temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place inside the residence? The above details will help direct you to which A/C system is best for your.

The next factor to consider is your actual home. How many windows do you have and where do they face? How much insulation is presently in the home and what level of efficiency is the ductwork? Does the home require (or do you prefer) gas, electric, solar-power, etc? At Comfort Masters Service Experts, we will come out and analyze your home to go over the options available considering your home’s structure and unique characteristics.

The additional thing to take into consideration is which business to use. Though one contractor may have the air conditioner you want at a cost you like, make sure you find out if they are bonded, licensed, and confirm they are insured just in case something should happen at your residence. If a contractor were to get injured and the business was not insured, it’s likely you would be held responsible. At Comfort Masters 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 top brands of air conditioning systems. We also provide a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be confident in the work we do.

Okay, okay, you’ve thought about all this but let’s get to the real question. What is this going to cost?
