Homeowners should understand these cost considerations when installing a new air conditioner this summer.
Edmonton summers are not the longest, but temperatures can certainly rise. Homeowners who want to cool their homes should install central air conditioning. Edmonton air conditioning companies can provide an accurate quote for AC installation, but here is some information to assist with your research.
Air conditioning costs in Edmonton will depend on the following factors:
· Size of the home.
· Complexity of the installation.
· Brand and model of the AC unit.
· The air conditioning company that is hired.
“Depending on these factors, homeowners can expect to pay between $3,000 and $6,000 for a central air conditioner,” said Nick of Furnace Solutions. “If you’re paying below $3,000 you should be very cautious. You might be getting a low-ball quote from an experienced contractor that is not licensed or insured.”
Below market pricing could also mean poor quality products and no warranty on installation.
If the air conditioner installation is very complex, your HVAC system needs to be overhauled or you choose a premium brand and model, you could pay over $6,000. Homeowners should ask for details when they are given an estimate, including details on parts, labour and warranty.
Choosing the right air conditioner company is also an important step in this process. Homeowners should always do background checks before hiring a contractor. Check for a business license, insurance, WCB coverage and ask how long the company has been operating. You should get and check references, ask about warranty details on installation and from the manufacturer.
