What Is The Price Of A New Heating And Air System?

Sponsored Content provided by Jimmy Williams - Owner, O’Brien Service Company

The first thing that most people want to know when considering the purchase of a new heating or air system is the price. We don’t blame them for asking. A new heating and air system is a major purchase and not one that most people make often.

Unfortunately, we can’t provide quick answers to such cost questions. But we have a good explanation why, and it comes down to the type and size of the system that will be best for your home.

The first major factor affecting the cost of a new heating and air system is its type. O’Brien Service Company offers many different types of systems, including heat pumps, mini splits, furnaces, straight AC systems, geothermal systems, and packaged systems. All of those types vary in price, as do the individual systems within those different types.

Here’s an example. Let’s say that one of our comfort specialists tells you that a heat pump would work great for your home. The price of heat pumps can differ greatly among the many options we offer. Each heat pump has a different SEER rating. SEER ratings are a way to measure the efficiency of a system. Also, you need a system that is the right size to meet your heating and cooling needs; this is determined by performing a load calculation in your home. Both SEER ratings and the size of a system help determine its cost. For example, the cost of a 1 ton 13 SEER heat pump is much less than a 5 ton 20 SEER heat pump.

The next elements that will influence the price of a new heating and air system are the installation details of the system and ductwork. Installing a new heating and air system is not like installing an appliance. When switching systems, sometimes the new one cannot be placed where the old system was. There are many other dynamics that can affect the price, such as installing more runs to vents, adding new piping, or expanding the space for the air handler. Also, most systems need ductwork; if your home does not currently have ductwork, or if the ductwork is old and in bad shape, then adding ductwork will increase the price of the new system. The only way to estimate the cost of new or updated ductwork is to have a professional take a look at your home.    

To determine the proper size of the system needed for your home, a load calculation must be performed. During this appointment, one of our comfort specialists will measure your home, perform the load calculation, and take a look at your existing system. Only after this work is done can we give you the estimated price of a new heating and air system. We try to provide many options when it comes to a new system, but we only give options that are suitable for your home.

The ability to finance a new system also can be a factor in the decision-making process. Our financing offers change during the year and are posted on our company’s website, www.obrienservice.com. You also can apply for financing approval and review information on tax credits by visiting our website. We’re also happy to provide this information by phone.

If you think it’s time for a new heating and air system in your home, give O’Brien Service Company a call. We want to help you through the process of purchasing a new heating and air system. You can read reviews from our customers about our work on our website.

There are many companies out there; be sure you are choosing a reliable one. No heating and air company should ever be able to provide a price for a new heating and air system over the phone.  If one does, it may be a red flag that the company is not reputable.
