Average Cost To Replace Heating And Air Conditioning

air conditioner replacement costsThe cost to replace and install a new air conditioner depends on various factors. Most air conditioning installations cost between $3,692 and $7,134. This estimate is for central air conditioning units.

There are several factors that influence this cost. The type of unit that you purchase affects the price. A unit that is more energy efficient will cost more than one with a lower SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio). Although you may pay more initially for an air conditioner that has a higher SEER rating, your home cooling costs will be significantly reduced. Currently, air conditioning units have a 13 SEER but can go all the way up to 27 SEER. Also, if your home needs ductwork or additional ductwork, then it will cost more than the average. Some air conditioners can be quite noisy. However, more popular brands offer energy efficient models that produce less noise. However, these models also have an increased cost. Air conditioning installation costs generally depend on labor costs, the size of the air conditioner that you require for your home, and the unit's energy efficiency rating (SEER).

Old Air Conditioner Dangers

When you have genuinely reached that point to replace your air conditioner, then it is important that you do so. Many homeowners will repair their current AC system until they have no choice. Also, they will use one far past its life expectancy. However, the older that your system is, the less efficient that it is. Also, the less effective that it is at doing its job. Air conditioners tend to last about 10-15 years. Using an old air conditioner will not only increase your energy expenses and decrease your comfort levels, but it also can be dangerous. Below is a list of common issues when using old and outdated air conditioning systems:

  • Microorganism buildup:Old AC units are an ideal place for fungi and bacteria to build up. Not all fungi produces infection but some do. They are capable of travelling throughout your home by way of your ductwork. This affects your respiratory system.
  • Respiratory Problems:Old AC systems can aggravate people with respiratory conditions. This includes bronchitis and asthma. It can also cause Legionnaires’ Disease and major lung infections.
  • Safety Concerns:Old air conditioning units use outdated parts and electrical components. This can be a fire hazard. Many house fires have begun due to old wiring in old air conditioning units. Since the wiring is within the unit, these issues can go unnoticed. When updating to a new unit, an HVAC contractor will examine the original wiring to make sure that it is still capable of being used. If not, it will be replaced.

When it is time to replace your unit, then it is important to do so. It will reduce your energy costs, increase your comfort levels, and keep you safe. However, it is important that you get a second opinion when you have been told that your system is no longer capable of being repaired.
