How Much Does a Central Air Unit Cost?

The cost for a new central air conditioning unit starts at $4,000, installation included, for a model with 13-16 SEER (Seasonal Environmental Efficiency Ratio). To replace an existing ‘Attic Air’ central AC system, costs start at $9,000, installation included.

To get a good price on a home air conditioner, keep a close eye on value factors, like the quality, efficiency, warranties, payment/financing, and installation.

An HSP cooling expert will help you weigh each factor during your free in-home consultation, including:

  • 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 has continued to rise in recent years; if you buy an air conditioner with a low SEER it may be considered "old" or "outdated" within just a few years.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

At Home Service Plus, we give you the best value on a new central air conditioner by ensuring you get the high efficiency home cooling equipment you are looking for with the precise installation you expect. Our competitive prices include industry-leading warranties and our team of professional central air conditioner technicians ensure your central air conditioning unit installation is completed properly and in accordance with all building codes.
