Cost of Having an Air Conditioning Unit Installed


Cost of having an air conditioning unit installedThe cost of having an air conditioning unit installed varies from $3,600 to $7,000 for a professional installation. The total cost depends on the size of your home and the type of system you prefer. There are several different types of air conditioners, including:

  • Window Units: Homeowners can install these at a fraction of the cost of a full­-home install. Installation is simple, but they only add cold­ air relief to one room in your house, and they do not add equity value.
  • Split Systems: These are either mini­split (ductless units) or central systems that are installed as outside and inside units
  • Central Systems: Uses a duct system that’s usually combined with the heating system to cool off an entire home.
  • Portable Units: Come as a split, hose or evaporative system designed to conveniently travel with you to different rooms in your home.

Costs to Install A Central Air Conditioner

Air conditioning costs are also affected by:

  • Whether or not you already have a central heating system in place
  • Whether or not you need ductwork
  • Your home’s insulation level
  • The brand and quality level of the AC unit you choose
  • The size of your home and the number of rooms

One of our professional contractors will perform a calculation on your home’s livable square footage to determine the appropriate air conditioner for your home. A too­-large unit will cycle on and off all the time resulting in energy loss, and a unit that’s too small will run constantly and cool your home inefficiently.

Installing a split or central air conditioning unit is not a DIY project.  ­­It involves handling refrigerant, and only professionals licensed by the Environmental Protection Agency can handle it because it’s considered a harmful chemical.
