Don't sweat the heat during Utah’s hot summer months without a new Ogden AC Replacement!
It has come to that time of the year, the loved time of year when you think to yourself, “why am I warm, it’s still…wait, it’s Spring”. The next move is towards the air conditioner thermostat to turn down the heat or even, turn the AC on. However, there is a pause in your movement and you think, “wasn’t I supposed to look into doing something with my AC unit last year?”. The answer normally is yes, you were and you should. But the cost of a new air conditioner is daunting for most people. However, let’s go through the ideal circumstances & variables to consider when starting to warm up to the notion of how much does a home air conditioner cost?
Common Types of Air Conditioner Units
Central Air Conditioning – $3,000 – $7,000
Central Air Conditioners are the most popular type of air conditioner in America, with more than half million units installed every day. These coolants extract fluid from inside your house and then compress it using refrigerant before sending this newly created hot liquid out through a series condenser coils where they turn into gas form for distribution throughout homes via fans or centralized ductwork system-a strategy which helps reduce energy costs because you’re not having to turn up individual rooms like with window-fitted systems.
Ductless Mini-Split Units – $3000 – $10,000
You can save money on your energy bills by installing a mini-split system. This type of air conditioning allows you to control temperatures in each zone, and it uses less electricity than traditional central systems! You only need one power connection for this kind as well – which means no more expensive bricking up or cutting into walls just because they’re near an outlet somewhere nearby (not that there’s anything wrong with those practices).
Heat Pump- $4000 – $8000
Heat pumps, despite the oxymoronic title, are like central air conditioners in that they provide efficient cooling and heating. Heat pumps may seem like an alternative solution only good for those who live in cold climates, but they provide much-needed humidity control and heating during both seasons. In addition to being cheaper than other home systems such as furnaces or central air conditioners – heat pump installation requires less maintenance. When the weather begins changing and springtime rolls around again this year or next winter season, the Heating Section of your HVAC system takes over so you can enjoy comfortable room temperature without having any worries about being too hot in certain areas during coolest parts days because our sophisticated software determines which mode best suits your home.
Outside of the actual cost of even the most common AC installations with the common equipment, there will be fluctuating costs associated with the following items unique to each system:
Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER): the higher the SEER rating, the less energy you will need to keep your home cool. A typical unit should have a 14-24 range with an even number being best! SEER rating refers to how much energy is needed for cooling output. The higher the ratio, the more efficiently the unit will perform, lowering your energy bills. Typical numbers to look for during your purchase fall between 14 and 24.
Air Conditioner Installation: Hiring an HVAC technician can be pricey depending on the complexity of your job and how long it takes. However, this is a required cost unless you purchase window units because professional help will always be needed for most AC jobs! Many contractors offer free consultations so don’t hesitate to reach out if you want quality work done right at home without breaking the bank.
Air Conditioner Size: Getting the right size air conditioner to cool your home is important, even though the larger sizes can be costly. If you purchase a smaller unit than you need, it will have to work harder to cool your space, and you could end up spending way more on energy and maintenance. Speak to a professional AC technician before purchasing if you’re not sure what size you need.
Air Conditioner Brand: When you’re looking for the best HVAC company, it is important that not just any contractor gets your installation done. Researching reputable companies and reading reviews from satisfied customers can help ensure accuracy on all counts.
