What Is The Cost Of Air Conditioner Systems

When it comes to air conditioner systems, you definitely get what you pay for. Over the past 25 years, we’ve learned that unfortunately, most homeowners are more interested in cheap installs than quality installs. 

Here at Done Deal A/C & Heating, we offer great craftsmanship and 100% transparency. That’s why we’re able to display our pricing right off the bat. So why don’t all HVAC companies include their exact pricing in their advertising? It’s simple.

The reality is that contractors lose money with upfront pricing. If a contractor steps foot in your home, they can create more value. They’ll be able to get a good idea of whether you’ll pay 8k or 12k. Of course, there’s a price for doing business. However, we know there’s a difference between overpriced systems and realistic numbers.

You need to ask yourself this question: How much are you willing to pay for your family’s comfort? We will give you the actual cost of the systems between 3-5 ton: $1800-$2100 electric system. If you have gas, add an additional $300 per system.

Now let’s add value to your purchase. Remember you get what you pay for. Let’s say your system costs $1800. Your price will skyrocket once you add materials such as a weatherproof disconnect box, whip, concrete pad, aquaguard float switch, thermostat, emergency drain pans/lines, flexible gas connector, flu pipe system, transition with inspection plenum, insulated return plenum, insulated supply plenum, collars with air balance and dampers.

The cost of a 3 ton electric system with materials is $2.200. Our price to you is $8k. Remember I said, “You get what you pay for?” You can actually get a 3 ton electric system installed for $3500, but ask yourself, “What company would put themselves in these types of condition?”: 140 degrees in the attic, and 5 to 7 hours of labor?

IF that system fails, the chances of a contractor returning to your home and servicing your unit in the event of failure is slim. After all, they’ve only earned a profit of $1k. Don’t forget taxes and insurance.

Now let’s talk about the bigger companies. They’re hard to miss thanks to their massive TV commercials, radio ads, and billboards. Do yourself a favor and run from those companies!

They don’t have anything to give because all of their money goes toward advertising. You will pay 10-12k for a 3 ton system with them because they have to cover their high overhead costs somehow.

Not only that, compare their prices to their online reviews. I don’t know about you, but I personally would pay a company 12k for a 3 ton system if their pricing reflects their reviews. Doing so would eliminate headaches down the line. If 90% of homeowners are saying negative things, why would you put yourself in that position?

There are also mid-level companies that rely on digital/social marketing, which is much more affordable than TV commercials and billboards. Mid-level companies like us are able to pass those savings to you. Consider these 3 things before purchasing your next HVAC system.

  1. Authenticity
  2. Social proof
  3. Reviews

Also, remember you’re paying for a skilled service that requires licensure and bonding. Your main focus should be quality service. Ask yourself if a company will fulfill their obligation in case of failure.

The costs of our units are out in the open because we’re confident in our service.  We also strive to eliminate phone calls from customers who could care less about value and quality. Those who are looking for the cheapest deal are not for us.

Your home is an investment. Choosing the wrong HVAC company can cause fires and years of headache. Fortunately, 98% of homeowners love our service. Here’s why: We’re consistent. Have excellent reviews, and offer great craftsmanship. Not to mention, we offer a no money down finance program! We would love to install your next HVAC systems!
