Air Conditioner Prices
When it comes to replacing or installing an air conditioning system you should receive several estimates from different companies. With these different estimates, you’ll have an array of air conditioner prices. Different factors will affect the price of your new cooling system. Below are some main reasons the prices vary.
First, a major factor that alters air conditioner prices is what size system your home needs. To determine the size of your system the company will perform a load calculation. Each company you receive an estimate from should offer the same size system. A system that is too large or too small will cause comfort issues and could harm your system.
From there, companies will offer different brands of systems. There are several HVAC manufactures available and the brands will vary in price. After they offer the brands they carry and determine the size of the system, they’ll provide you different system options based on their efficiency rating. This is measured by the SEER rating. The higher the SEER, the more efficient and the higher the price tag. Though, more efficient systems can often save you money in the long run by lowering energy bills and having a longer lifespan.
O’Brien Air Conditioner Prices
At O’Brien, we know we may not always be the cheapest choice when quoting air conditioner prices (we won’t always be the most expensive either!). But, we do know we are the right choice. We take the proper steps to ensure you receive the best system for your home. We use the highest quality materials, offer only the top systems, and have an amazing crew behind the installation. You can buy a top notch system, but if the installation is not done correctly you may never see the benefits. So, be sure you do your research on not only the brands of systems, but the companies installing them as well.
Buy Cheap- You May Pay for it Later
As the saying goes, “You get what you pay for.” This is true with air conditioner prices. You want to get the cheapest AC installation possible? Beware of the unseen costs. A better brand system will have higher quality parts that could last longer. For example, Trane’s all aluminum coil. Trane states, “The innovative design of Trane’s high efficiency Comfort™ Coil delivers durability and resists corrosion and rust.” Therefore, this can prevent unwanted repairs, help extend the lifespan of your system, and could increase your home comfort!
When it comes to receiving air conditioner prices, be sure to get a few. Confirm they take the proper steps to quote the correct size system needed for your home. Also, do research on the brands they offer, and on the company installing the AC system. We welcome you to visit our reviews page to see what the community is saying about us!
Finally, make sure whoever installs your new system registers it for its parts warranty. At O’Brien we’ll do this paperwork for you. If not completed you can lose half of the parts warranty!
Here are a few of our customer reviews. For more visit the reviews tab:
“This was easy. Obrien’s was the only contractor to measure our home and determine the correct size units to install. This information was calculated and given to us to help determine what to install. They were neat, clean, on time, and provided a schedule to follow for all work involved. The duct work in our upstairs had to be reworked as it did not provide proper airflow. Since all work has been completed the comfort level is much better. We have been informed that if it does not meet our needs corrections will be done.” –Vince G. (Southport, NC 28461)
“I must say this is a HUGE expense so my husband and I definitely had a few quotes done. I started with O’Brien and after a few more companies I went straight back and finished with them. From the sales tech to the install we have been nothing but pleased!!! They may have been the most expensive (not by much) but I’m a firm believer in “you get what you pay for!!!” If I had to do this all over again I would call O’Brien back in a heartbeat! Thank you for the wonderful experience!!” –Stephanie & Chris B. (Wilmington, NC 28405)
