These days, heating and cooling is an essential part of any household. With HVAC installation and repair costs rising, homeowners are careful and wary, often because they simply don’t know what to expect. So let’s dive in and talk about HVAC costs and the many factors that can increase, decrease, or otherwise generally affect these prices.
HVAC Installation Costs
Having a brand new air conditioning unit installed is no small thing. This important investment can last up to 15 years with proper operation and maintenance. Typically, the range for brand new HVAC systems can be somewhere around $5,000, depending on the equipment. A major chunk of this price is for the equipment itself. You can expect additional costs for labor and other possible expenses, such as replacing or installing ducts.
Air Conditioning Costs
The price of the HVAC equipment itself is also affected by a number of factors. One of these factors would be capacity. You can expect higher capacity units to be more expensive, which is why it’s important to determine first how much cooling your new unit will produce. Other features can also drive prices through the roof such as high-efficiency ratings and additional features such as diagnostics and even noise-less performance.
HVAC Repair Costs
Repairs are inevitably needed occasionally, but the prices for repairs are significantly lower than having a new HVAC system installed. If your unit needs replacement parts, you can expect the price of the part and an additional cost for labor in your total. Prices for replacements vary from $20 to $2,000, depending on the parts.
