Investing in a new, high-efficiency central AC unit can save you a lot of money in the long run if it is properly installed and maintained. But the cost to buy a new unit still matters, even if the investment is sure to create great returns via reduced energy bills and increases in home value.
When you’re ready to buy a new cooling system for your northern New Jersey home, make sure you’re comparing apples to apples when evaluating estimates. To do that, you need to know what affects the price of your central AC system.
Here are the six key factors that influence the cost of a new central air conditioner, and the questions you should be asking your HVAC contractor about them:
Key question: What sized unit is covered in this estimate?
Key question: Does this estimate include work on my ducts? If so, what kind?
Key question: What brand of air conditioner is included in this estimate? Can I substitute other brands?
Key question: What is the SEER rating of the air conditioner in this estimate, and how will moving up or down the SEER scale affect my monthly bills?
Key question: What special accommodations will my installation require? What’s included in this estimate?
Key question: Why should I choose you as my HVAC contractor?
