New AC Installations: What Does a New Air Conditioner Cost in Tulsa? How much a new air conditioning, heating, or air filtration system will cost can vary greatly depending on a host of factors. These variables normally fall into three categories: Lifestyle Factors: The health conditions of the home's residents (allergies, respiratory issues, and sensitivity to surroundings) How the inhabitants "feel" comfortable (liking to cooler or warmer temperatures) Hobbies and activities occurring inside the house (musical instruments, crafts, wine) Building and Environmental Factors: The number, type, and size of windows currently in place, the direction the home faces, and age of the home Design of building, roofing, siding, ductwork, and amount of insulation present Geographic climate, lot size, city regulations and surrounding environment including regular humidity, close-by industries, available land, and codes required Utilities desired or available; solar, geothermal, gas, electric, LP, oil Contractor Risk Factors: Contractor licensing, insurance, bonding, and financial stability Legitimacy, expertise, and certification level of the employees installing the equipment Satisfaction Guarantees and service level (obtainability and commitment to customer priorities) All of these factors and more help to decide the design, size, and level of work required to correctly heat and cool a home, which typically goes into the expense associated with the new system. What Can You Expect to Pay? Ranch or Smaller Residence Up to 2000 square feet 1 or 1.5 Story $40-$250 per month with approved financing, or $6,000 - $15,000 Average Suburban Home 2000-3500 square feet 1-3 Story $100-$500/month with approved financing, or $8,000 - $25,000 Luxury Home 3500+ square feet Various levels or highly custom $250+ per month with approved financing, or $18,000 - $60,000+ Potential pricing may vary depending on geographic location, personal lifestyle, system settings, equipment maintenance and installation of equipment and duct system. Because every home’s heating and cooling system must be fully custom designed and installed, it is awfully tough for good contractors like Jack Nelson Service Experts to offer a specific estimate without investigating all the factors on-site through an in-home comfort analysis. However, we can suggest wide ranges of the probable HVAC system price based on the general size of a home less than 30 years old. Keep in mind however, even the price ranges above can vary much more, dependant on all the factors and circumstances of a certain home and homeowner. How HVAC Systems Are Priced by the Manufacturer (MSRP) Central heating and cooling systems are like vehicle classes. Systems usually fall into big (and sometimes misleading) ranges of "economy", "mid-level", and "premium". However, because every homeowner is unique, each new heating and cooling system is manually installed, and because of all the previous factors we discussed, the process and ultimate pricing of a heating and cooling system could be equated to selecting vehicle "Options." Home Comfort Options Home comfort Options include size and efficiency, and also include air quality control, such as the efficiency of air cleaners and air filters. Air quality control systems are essential for homeowners with infants and children, people in the home with allergy or respiratory concerns, or climate control issues that necessitate humidification controls. Thermostat controls are also a large part of the home comfort puzzle, and a big choice of mobile and Wi-Fi options now exist. Other home comfort choices include adding the required amount of insulation or redesigning, correcting, and cleaning ductwork to be sure the system works efficiently. Some choices can be purchased as a bundle, but a lot of these options must be determined through a complete Home Comfort Analysis, which is a courtesy service we offer. All of these options should be considered very carefully, since the best air conditioner or furnace will never correctly control the comfort of the home if the duct work, attic insulation, or air filter is deficient for the home and its inhabitants.
