If you have never had air conditioning in your home or if you have been relying on small units like window units or portable air conditioners, now is a great time to consider new air conditioner installation. While central air conditioners are more expensive to install, they provide much more cooling power for your home and will keep you cool and comfortable all summer long.
The cost of new air conditioner installation depends on several factors. First, it will vary depending on the air conditioner unit you are installing. Also, it will be more expensive if you need ductwork installed to distribute the air throughout your home. Finally, different contractors may charge different amounts for their labor.
Before your air conditioner installation can begin, your installer will need to figure out what air conditioner is right for you. This is an important measurement because if you end up with an air conditioner that is too small, it will run too much and cool inefficiently. It is possible to get too large a unit, as well. If your air conditioner is too large, it will cycle on and off more often and waste energy.
When choosing a unit for your air conditioner installation, there are many considerations, including the following:
• Climate where you live
• Size, shape and orientation of your home
• Square footage of your home
• If there is existing ductwork and vents, can they be used for the new installation?
• How well insulated is the house?
• Quality and materials of windows, walls and flooring
Getting a new air conditioner installation can be an exciting addition to your home. It increases the value of your home and makes it a more pleasant environment for your family and guests.
