How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost?

July 18, 2016

The time has come when you have to replace your air conditioning system. Nobody looks forward to this day, and nobody wants to worry about budgeting for it, but sadly is comes with Atlanta homeownership. So where do you begin?

First, realize that the price of a new A/C system fluctuates based on multiple factors. The first is your routine and the other residents in your home. Are there health problems that will call for a particular type of air cleaning system? Do the family members in the home have a sensitivity to warmth or coolness, or an affliction (like Multiple Sclerosis) that would that would result in the home needing to stay at a specific temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place within the house? The above details will help decide which A/C system is best for your home.

The following thing to assess is your actual home. How many windows do you have and which direction do they face? What level of insulation is presently in the home and how efficient is the ductwork? Does the house require (or do you desire) solar-power, gas, electric, etc? At Peachtree Service Experts, we will go out and analyze your house to go over the options available depending on your home’s construction and unique features.

The additional factor to take into consideration is which contractor to call. Though one business may have the equipment you want at a price point you like, be thorough and find out if they are licensed, bonded, and confirm they are insured in the event that something should happen at your residence. If a technician were to get hurt and the business was not insured, it’s likely you would be held accountable. At Peachtree Service Experts, not only are we insured, licensed, and bonded, but all of our workers go through a detailed background check, drug test, and are skilled to work on all top brands of A/C systems. We also provide a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be assured in the work we deliver.
