How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost? 

The time has come when you have to replace your air conditioning system. Nobody looks forward to this day, and nobody looks forward to budgeting for it, but alas, ‘tis part of Jacksonville homeownership. So where do you begin

First, understand that the price of a new air conditioning system differs based on several factors. The first is your routine and the people living in your home. Are there health conditions that will involve a special type of air filtration system? Do the people living in the home have an issue with the heat or cold, or a disorder that would require the home to stay at a specific temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place in the home? All of these things will help determine which air conditioning system is best for your. 

The next variable to take into consideration is your actual home. How many windows do you have and which way do they face? What level of insulation is currently in the home and what level of efficiency is the ductwork? Does the home require (or do you prefer) electric, solar-power, gas, etc? At Air Engineers Service Experts, we will go out and assess your home to help determine the options available considering your home’s construction and unique characteristics. 

The third variable to consider is which business to choose. Though one company may have the system you want at a budget you like, make sure you find out if they are licensed, bonded, and confirm they are insured in the event that something should happen at your home. If a contractor were to get hurt and the company was not insured, it’s probable you would be liable. At Air Engineers Service Experts, not only are we insured, licensed, and bonded, but all of our employees go through a thorough background check, drug test, and are qualified to work on all top brands of A/C systems. We also have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be confident in the work we do. 

Alright, alright, you’ve thought about all this but let’s get to the real question. How much is this going to cost?
