The price for a new system can vary dramatically, starting at around $5,500 to over $15,000. This is why scheduling an appointment to see your home in person is so important. The major factor that affects the pricing is:

SEER rating:

SEER tells you how efficient the A/C will be. It is like the MPG rating of a car…the higher the number the more efficient the system. A high-efficiency A/C helps lower your monthly electric bills, but it also has a higher upfront cost.

Unit size:

AC units are not one size fits all. The properly sized system will be determined for your home using the most current calculation methods. Larger capacity systems are more expensive than smaller ones.

Comfort features:

400;”>Variable speed blowers, smart thermostats, multi-stage compressors— these features make you more comfortable, but they also increase the upfront cost.

Fixing ductwork issues:

Some homes have air duct issues that need fixing before we install the A/C system.

Consider a new A/C if you see these signs:

From our experience, the average A/C in San Antonio lasts about 10-15 years. The lifespan decreases further if you have not had annual professional maintenance.

Frequent expensive repairs:

If your A/C is starting to need repairs regularly, it’s near the end of its lifespan.

Runs inefficiently:

Do you have outrageously high energy bills? Older units are inefficient and run up your energy bills.
