Factors to consider in determining how much it will cost to install a new central air conditioning system?

A/C installations and Central air installations costs vary according to building size and the availability of the pre-existing systems in the home or business. Some homes and businesses will have the ductwork necessary for a quick and easy installation, however, homes and businesses that need new ductwork may see their cost of installation increase significantly.

The square footage of the home and SEER Rating of your new system

The size of the home, the number of windows, the of the unit selected all go into determining the price of installation. Things to consider when installing a new Central Air or AC system include, the age of your unit, does your system have a lengthy repair history, do you have any family members with allergies, do you own any pets and what the average energy bill is during the summer.

How Efficient is your current unit and what are the true costs of ownership

Determine the efficiency of your system Even if your central air conditioner is just eight to 10 years old, it could use up twice the electricity that a low-end new one Ac system would use. Some old units operate at or below 10 SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, which is the amount of energy needed to provide a specific cooling output. Before 2006, 10 SEER was standard, but in the last few years, the minimum allowed by federal law is 13 SEER, This translates to at least 30% less electrical consumption and at least 30% lower cooling bills than equipment rated 10 SEER or lower installed just a 10 years ago.
