How much will it cost to replace an Air Conditioning System?

The cost to replace an air conditioning system depends on five factors:
  1. The size of the system required to cool the area efficiently
  2. The efficiency rating of the new air conditioning system
  3. Brand of air conditioning system
  4. Modification(s) required to make the system operate efficiently
  5. Additional modifications requested by clients
Due to the amount of variables that dictate the actual air conditioning replacement cost, we believe the best way to be transparent is to give our clients a range of what our past clients have spent in the past to replace their air conditioning system.

How is the price for an air conditioning system determined?

The price to replace an air conditioning system is determined by the cost of the equipment, materials, and the amount of time it will take to complete the installation of the air conditioning system.

How long will it take to replace an air conditioning system?

The average time to replace an air conditioning system is between 4 and 8 hours. We replace most air conditioning systems in a single day. Any required changes and client requested services that are also being performed can increase the amount of time needed to replace an air conditioning system.

How long will you have to wait until your new air conditioner is installed?

This fluctuates with the season, but the average customer has their new air conditioning system installed the very next day. We understand that there will be emergency situations, therefore we try to leave a next day installation spot available to our clients in need of a quick turnaround.

How to Know if a Home Air Conditioner Replacement Is Right for You

If you’re considering a home air conditioner replacement, you might be wondering how you can tell if one is really beneficial for you. While you can always contact our HVAC contractors when in doubt, it’s important to understand the age of your AC unit, its efficiency rating, the AC replacement cost, and the cost of repairs for a new AC unit.

Are you comfortable at home? If your AC isn’t providing adequate comfort, you might need a replacement. Improper maintenance can leave your home feeling too warm, and the unit isn’t strong enough or has aged to where it cannot handle your cooling needs.


Do you have an old AC unit? Then, it’s likely to be inefficient. If your unit’s SEER rating is under 13, consider our home AC services to replace your unit. Even if your unit is over 13 SEER, older models can wear down and be so inefficient that they operate at 10 SEER or below.


AC replacements cost much more than repairs, but they offer more comfort and peace of mind throughout the summer and the future. Consider your budget and the size of your AC and home cooling needs before deciding on an AC replacement.


Typically, repairs on a new AC cost much less than those for an older unit, but you never want to have to repair a new one. New AC units will typically have warranties that protect them, but repairs for new units are usually a result of improper installation. You can avoid that by getting in touch with a premium installation service like ours.
