With so many associated costs, HVAC installation is a big investment. Finding out that you need a new AC, especially unexpectedly, can be stressful and overwhelming. That’s why understanding the cost of HVAC installation services and how you can manage those costs is an important part of the installation process.
AC Installation Costs
When you have a new HVAC system installed, there are two separate costs: parts and labor. If you choose an AC company to install your AC, they will charge you the price of their AC unit and the price of installing it, but these costs are generally presented as one combined number.
The average cost of AC installation (including the unit) is $5,750, with a typical range of around $3,700 to $7,400. This depends mainly on the size and type of system being installed, but it can also change based on several factors, such as whether the installation crew is using existing ductwork or replacing/adding ductwork. The price will also vary depending on how much the company charges for labor.
How can I save money on installation?
The numbers listed above might feel like a big deal, but there are a couple different things you can do to help mitigate the cost of your new HVAC system. If you install a unit meeting certain energy efficiency standards, AC installation rebates and incentives from the government and manufacturers can get you partial reimbursement for installation costs. In California, there are over 100 state incentives for renewable and efficient energy.
Additionally, most companies offer AC installation financing, so you can pay for your AC in several payments.
