How Much Does a Central Air Unit Cost?

It costs the average homeowner $3,000 - $5,000 for a new central air conditioning unit with installation. It's definitely important to get a good price on a home air conditioner, but you need to keep a close eye on other value factors, like the quality of the equipment, efficiency, warranties, payment/financing, and installation.

A cooling expert from Home Service Plus will help you review each value factor during your free in-home consultation.

  • Efficiency - Central air conditioners typically last 15 years, so energy efficiency should always be considerated. When shopping for a new home air conditioner, the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) will tell you which models are most efficient. The higher the SEER, the less it costs to operate (smaller cooling bills). Consider that the efficiency of central a/c units hasz continued to rise in recent years; if you buy an air conditioner with a low SEER it may be considered "old" or "outdated" within just a few years.
  • Quality - The global economy brings you an overwhelming number of central air conditioners to choose from, but workmanship varies greatly - especially when you examine the quality of parts inside the unit. At Home Service Plus, we only offer Daikin®, Ruud® and Mitsubishi® cooling options because they're high quality manufacturers we confidently back up with our industry-leading warranties.
  • Warranties - Smart homeowners understand the importance of warranties, but make sure you examine more than just the length of coverage. The scope of warranty coverage is important, too. HSP offers you industry-leading warranties at no extra cost, because 1) we only sell durable central air conditioners and 2) we install them ourselves with care and precision.
  • Installation - Don't try saving a buck by hiring an unlicensed, un-bonded or inexperienced person to install central air conditioning units. Nearly half of all HVAC equipment is installed incorrectly. Don't risk voiding your warranty or putting your family in danger!

What Can an Incorrect Installation Cost Me?

Almost half of all heating-and cooling equipment is installed correctly, according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Incorrect installation of a central air conditioner can:

  • Decrease cooling efficiency by 30 percent
  • Reduce the a/c unit's lifespan
  • Void your manufacturer's warranty
  • Cause fires & air-quality problems
