Factors that Impact your Air Conditioners Cost
There are many things that may impact the cost of your air conditioner. The location that you are in often has an impact on the price that you can expect to pay for your air conditioning unit. Other factors that impact your air conditioning cost include whether you are replacing the unit or installing a new system, the overall size of your home, the setup and size of the windows in your building, and the existing duct system of the building.

In order to replace a standard air conditioner, you can usually expect to spend a minimum of $3800. These prices will then increase based on other factors. A more efficient air conditioner unit often costs a few hundred dollars more than the standard. You can usually expect to pay around $4500 and up for an energy efficient air conditioner. Keep in mind, that these air conditioners will often save you a substantial amount on energy expenses over time.
2 Stage and Variable Speed
2 stage air conditioners usually cost around $5600 and up. Variable speed air conditioners are often more energy efficient because they don’t start with the air conditioner operating at 100%. Instead, the variable speed ensures that the speed is slowly increased until it meets your needs. These air conditioners generally cost $6000 and up.
