how much does it cost to service an air conditioner
If you decide to replace your HVAC System it can be costly if you do not have the right person to calculate it Item Unit Cost , Quantity Line Cost 230 VAC, padding , include duct work , piping for example if you want an upgrade of 4tons at 12000 btu’s per ton which puts at 48,000 in cooling can very well be over 4000 dollars thats if you dont replace miscellaneous things such as high and low voltage wiring , breakers , ductwork ,piping and finish work such as sheet rock wall or ceiling repairs labor cost per hr can be in the 40’s.
Remember this price May double if you decide to change all the accessories mentioned above it may also very what types of unit that you decide to replace with for example a person who decides to get a Tempstar versus a Trane unit of course the Trane unit is going to be more costly not that it’s a better unit these days it’s just that Trane has a name and a good reputation it just costs more it will cost the technician or the contractor more money to purchase it so there is a cost transfer from contractor to consumer.
you can actually save up to 40% if you decide to keep your existing structure for example you have a three bedroom house 2 bathrooms the house was built with a three and a half Ton air conditioning unit and you replaced it with the same no copper piping no new plenum no new ductwork new electrical anything keep the same thermostat you can save more money by going that way but I personally recommend changing the copper lines because R22 has not only been phased out it’s pressure was lower than 410A so it’s recommended to change the lines to new ones because of one contamination and also to prevent Refrigeration leaks.
Over and over again in my years of doing HVAC work I have seen technicians contractor sell air handlers to customers because it’s half the cost the sales pitch is that the air handler can take either gas r22 or 410A again it’s been told that you can replace the condenser on the outside and leave the R-22 air handler evaporator without replacing it when you do that you run into an efficiency problem for example if you have a fixed orifice system The Seer that the manufacturer promises will only perform in a package when you start mixing up the units you lose efficiency and also contamination having going through the trouble to change flush the lines I personally think it’s just too much work get it over with get a new air handler a new condenser get your 10 year warranty and call it a day.
