Air Conditioning Replacement FAQs

How much does it cost to get a home air conditioner replaced?

If your HVAC unit isn't operating as well as it once did, it's time to replace it. The cost of replacing a whole HVAC unit ranges from $5,000 to $10,000, with the national average being $7,000. This equates to between $25 to $60 per square foot. Prices are determined by the size and brand of the HVAC system, the size of the house, the length of the ductwork and the efficiency rating of the new unit.

What size residential air conditioner do I need for my home?

Square footage is a good beginning point for determining the size of your air conditioner, but many other considerations come into play. It's also critical to assess your own house. For example, how much shade is there, what kind of roofing do you have and how well is your property insulated? A single-family home's cooling requirements may be higher than those of a townhouse of the same size with one or more walls connecting to neighbors.

Can I finance my new home air conditioning system?

When it comes to obtaining a new home heating and conditioning system, our clients have a variety of financing options. We offer brand- financing through Bryant and Amana, plus we can help you get a loan and a refund via the City of Tallahassee Utility program. If that loan does not cover the entire purchase price, private financing for the balance may still be a possibility. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have during the replacement process.

What factors affect the cost of AC installation?

Several factors influence the cost of AC installation, including:

  1. Unit Size: Larger units for bigger spaces cost more.
  2. System Type: Ducted central air conditioning systems are typically more expensive than ductless mini-split systems.
  3. Installation Complexity: Factors like ductwork modifications or electrical upgrades can increase costs.
  4. Efficiency Rating: Higher-efficiency units often come with a higher upfront cost.
  5. Location: Local labor rates and permit fees can affect overall installation expenses.
  6. Additional Features: Upgrades like zoning or smart thermostats add to the total cost.
What are some types of AC units available?

Several types of AC systems are available to suit different needs:

  1. Central Air Conditioning: Uses ducts to distribute cooled air throughout the home.
  2. Ductless Mini-Split: Provides zoned cooling without ductwork, ideal for room additions or older homes.
  3. Window Units: Compact and affordable, suitable for single-room cooling.
  4. Portable AC Units: Easy to move and install, offering temporary cooling solutions.
  5. Packaged AC Systems: Combines heating and cooling components in one outdoor unit, common in commercial buildings.
  6. Evaporative (Swamp) Coolers: Uses water evaporation to cool air, suitable for dry climates.

Do I Need A New AC?

Depending on the quality and service history of your unit, it may not need to be replaced anytime soon. However, there are a few things to be on the lookout for when considering replacement:

  • Age Of System - In our area, where the heat of summer can be pretty extreme, an AC will typically last around 12 - 15 years. Depending on whether the unit has had regular maintenance or not, as well as if it was installed properly and the overall quality of the brand itself, this time frame could be more or less. Typically, however, any unit over 15 years old is likely on its last leg and could be vulnerable to breakdowns and inefficient operation.
  • Number Of Repairs - Are you constantly calling a repair service to come fix your AC? Units that continually need to be fixed tend to have to be replaced sooner rather than later. When your system malfunctions time and time again, it may be time to start over.
  • Cost Of Energy Bills - AC units that are not performing well will use more energy. This, of course, will be reflected in your power or gas bills. If you notice your energy usage creeping up, it could be time to start talking about replacement.
