New HVAC Installations: What Does a New Air Conditioner and Furnace Cost in Fort Lauderdale? How much a new air conditioning, heating, or air filtration system will cost can differ greatly depending on a host of factors. These variables generally fall into a few categories: Lifestyle Factors: The health conditions of the home's inhabitants (allergies, respiratory issues, and sensitivity to surroundings) How the occupants "feel" comfortable (liking to cooler or warmer temperatures) Hobbies and activities happening inside the house (musical instruments, crafts, wine) Building and Environmental Factors: The number, style, and size of windows currently in place, the direction the home faces, and age of the home Design of building, roofing, siding, ductwork, and level of insulation present Geographic climate, lot size, city regulations and surrounding atmosphere including regular humidity, neighboring industries, available land, and codes required Utilities desired or available; solar, geothermal, gas, electric, LP, oil Contractor Risk Factors: Contractor licensing, insurance, bonding, and financial strength Validity, expertise, and certification level of the employees installing the equipment Satisfaction Guarantees and service level (availability and devotion to customer satisfaction) All of these aspects and more help to dictate the design, size, and level of work required to properly heat and cool a home, which normally goes into the price of the new system.

Because every home’s heating and cooling system must be totally custom developed and installed, it is very hard for good contractors like Service Experts to offer a specific estimate without understanding all the factors on-site that can be found during an in-home comfort analysis. However, we can provide large ranges of the potential HVAC system price based on the general size of a home that isn’t yet 30 years old. It’s important to note that, even the price ranges above may vary much more, dependant on all the factors and circumstances of a specific home and homeowner. How HVAC Systems Are Priced by the Manufacturer (MSRP) Central heating and cooling systems are comparable to vehicle classes. Systems normally fall into big (and sometimes incorrect) ranges of "economy", "mid-level", and "premium". However, because every homeowner is unique, each new heating and cooling system is manually installed, and because of all the previous factors noted, the process and ultimate pricing of a heating and cooling system could be equated to picking vehicle "Options." Home Comfort Options Home comfort Options include size and efficiency, as well as air quality control, such as the efficiency of air cleaners and air filters. Air quality control systems are imperative for homeowners with infants and children, people in the home with allergy or respiratory problems, or climate control issues that require humidification controls. Thermostat controls are also a large part of the home comfort puzzle, and a large choice of mobile and Wi-Fi options are out there. Other home comfort options include adding the required amount of insulation or redesigning, correcting, and cleaning ductwork to be sure the system works efficiently. Some options can be added as a package, but many of these choices must be decided through a complete Home Comfort Analysis, which is a complimentary service we have. All of these options must be considered very carefully, since the best air conditioner or furnace will never correctly control the comfort of the home if the duct work, attic insulation, or air filter is inadequate for the home and its occupants.
