People always want to know the big question. How much do air conditioners cost?
Note that it is advised that you should get a comfort adviser to come out and do a heat load calculation and find out what size of equipment you need for the home. Ducting and extra returns and hard flues are not included in the prices. Here are the air conditioner price ranges below.

Keep in mind this is for replacing your existing air conditioning system and prices can vary when you need to add air conditioning to a home or that does not have it. Due to the scams that occur in the HVAC industry if the prices are much lower or extremely higher than prices listed above please seek more research to make sure exactly what your getting. There are some selling budget model brands for extremely high prices. And others that use extremely aggressive sales techniques to get you to purchase right away. Always get a second opinion when purchasing a heating and cooling system if you feel they are pressuring you to buy.
Brands are not all the same please do your research and look at the consistency over the last 10 years to see who is rated with less repairs.
A good quality install is the main thing when it comes to your new system. This will cost you more upfront but will pay off in the end. Remember a good quality install with the most reliable brand is not going to be the cheapest price
