How Much Should an Air Conditioning System Cost?

July 18, 2016

The time has come when you have to get a new air conditioning system. Nobody hopes for this day, and nobody wants to worry about budgeting for it, but alas, ‘tis part of Winnipeg homeownership. So where on earth should you begin?

First, realize that the investment of a new air conditioning system differs based on many factors. The first is your lifestyle and the people living in your home. Are there health conditions that will warrant a special type of air cleaning system? Do the people living in the home have a sensitivity to the cold or heat, or a condition (i.e., Multiple Sclerosis) that would demand that the home stay at a specific temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place in the house? The above details will help choose which air conditioning system is best for your home.

The next factor to examine is the actual home. How many windows do you have and where do they face? What type of insulation is currently in the residence and what level of efficiency is the ductwork? Does the residence require (or do you want) electric, solar-power, gas, etc? At Winnipeg Supply Service Experts, we will come out and analyze your current set-up to go over the systems available depending on your home’s construction and unique characteristics.

The additional factor to take into consideration is which business 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 bonded, licensed, and confirm they are insured just in case something should occur at your house. If a contractor were to get hurt and the business was not insured, it’s probable you would be held responsible. At Winnipeg Supply Service Experts, not only are we insured, licensed, and bonded, but all of our team go through a thorough background check, drug test, and are trained to work on all leading brands of A/C systems. We also have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be confident in the work we deliver.

Alright, alright, you’ve researched all this but let’s answer the real question. What is this going to cost?

While all the details above will go into deciding a final budget, below are a few ballpark numbers.
