Frequently Asked AC Installation & Replacement Questions
How much does it cost to get central air installed?
The cost to install central air conditioning will depend on the size of your home, the quality and type of AC unit, and the labor costs for the HVAC contractor. According to Home Advisor, average AC installation costs in the U.S. range from about $3,700 to $7,200.
Can I install my own air conditioner?
In most areas, a professional HVAC contractor is required for an AC installation., but even in areas where a professional is not required, it still makes sense to hire one. An improperly installed AC unit may fail prematurely, it may drive up your utility costs, or it could even be dangerous. Plus, most manufacturers require professional installation for full warranty protection.
How often should you replace your air conditioning unit?
Most air conditioners will last 12 to 15 years, but even after 10 years, improvements in performance and efficiency may make the upgrade worthwhile.
Should I repair or replace my AC unit?
A new AC unit can be costly, so if it has only minor problems, like a small refrigerant leak or a faulty control board, AC repairs will often be the best option. If your system is over 10 years old or has major problems like a faulty compressor, a blower motor failure, or a leaking condenser coil, replacement may be the most cost-effective long-term solution.
