How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost?

July 18, 2016

The time has come when you have to get a new air conditioner. Nobody looks forward to this day, and nobody wants to worry about budgeting for it, but sadly is comes with Tulsa homeownership. So where to begin?

First, know that the price of a new air conditioner varies based on multiple factors. The first is your lifestyle and the other people residing in your home. Are there health ailments that will require a special type of air cleaning system? Do the family members in the home have a sensitivity to the cold or heat, or an affliction (i.e., Multiple Sclerosis) that would that would result in the home needing to stay at a pre-determined temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place in the home? The above details will help determine which air conditioning system is best for your.

The following thing to assess is the actual home. Do you have a lot of windows and where do they face? How much insulation is currently in the house and how efficient is the ductwork? Does the house require (or do you want) gas, electric, solar-power, etc? At Jack Nelson Service Experts, we will pay you a visit and assess your house to provide the choices available depending on your home’s construction and unique features.

The third factor to consider is which contractor to call. Though one business may have the air conditioner you want at a cost you like, be careful and find out if they are licensed and bonded, and confirm they are insured just in case something should happen at your home. If a technician were to get hurt and the contractor was not insured, it’s likely you would be held accountable. At Jack Nelson Service Experts, not only are we insured, licensed, and bonded, but all of our team go through a detailed background check, drug test, and are skilled to work on all top brands of air conditioners. We also have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be comfortable in the work we provide.
