The average cost of installing central air conditioning is $5,651; the typical range is $3,800 for smaller systems to $7,500 for larger or upgraded systems. Many factors influence the price, including the type of unit purchased, the size and energy efficiency of the unit, and the layout/structure of your home. Remember, each HVAC installation is different and the scope and cost of the job is driven by the needs and conditions of your individual home. An HVAC professional should inspect your home before installing a unit. A pre-installation appraisal can establish what size system you require, how well your home is insulated, and whether or not existing ducts and vents exist.
AC industry professionals define "size" as the air conditioner's power — that is, its cooling capacity — rather than its physical dimensions. This capacity is commonly referred to as BTUs, which stands for British Thermal Unit. A BTU is the amount of energy required to reduce the temperature of a pound of water by one degree. One ton is defined as 12,000 BTUs in this measurement system. A 2.5-ton air conditioner, for example, would be equivalent to 30,000 BTUs.
In summary, one ton of cooling is required for every 500 or 600 square feet of space in your home. Older homes with outdated frameworks may not be equipped to support modern systems, requiring exhaustive renovations or even ductwork replacement that could cost $10,000 or more.
Consider the age of your current HVAC system. It is a fact that older air conditioners are less efficient than newer, more recent models. According to Energy Star, you should consider replacing your air conditioner if it is more than 10 years old and it is more and more frequently in need of repairs.
The first rule of any piece of machinery is that preventative maintenance is essential. As you might expect, keeping up with this maintenance is critical if you want to extend the life of your AC unit. Every other month, a homeowner can easily inspect and replace an air filter. However, scheduling a seasonal tune-up will allow the service technician to detect minor issues before they become major, AC breakdown-causing issues.
How Do I Know If I Need A New Air Conditioner?
The lifespan of an air conditioning system is typically between 10 and 15 years. If your system is older than that, it may be time to start thinking about replacement. Signs that indicate you may need a new system include:
- Your energy bills have been steadily increasing.
- There has been a decrease in the effectiveness of your system.
- Your system makes strange noises.
- Your system requires frequent repairs.

- Improved Comfort: A new system will cool your home more effectively and evenly.
