If you have never had a central AC in your home, there are some fantastic reasons to consider central AC installation. These larger systems are more expensive, but they deliver more cooling power to your whole home, making it more comfortable and enjoyable on the hottest summer days. Even if your home already has a central AC and you need a new system for some reason, you may have never gone through the AC installation process.
The biggest question on anyone’s mind before AC installation is how much it will cost. Well, the answer to that question is not always straightforward. The biggest variable is the cost of the unit used during your AC installation. Different brands and sizes can vary widely in price. Your AC installation specialist will be able to judge what unit is right for your application and give you an estimated cost. The cost of AC installation will also vary because you may or may not have existing ductwork that can be used for the new system. Also, different contractors charge different rates for labor.
Sizing your new unit for AC installation is one of the most important and challenging parts of the AC installation process. If you end up with a unit that is too small, it will be inefficient because it will run almost constantly to cool your house to the desired temperature. If you end up with a unit that is too large, it may cycle on and off more often and waste energy. When deciding what unit is right for you, your contractor will consider the climate of your area, as well as the square footage, shape and orientation of your home.
