When is it Time to Replace Your Air Conditioner?
Buy AC FAQs
Yes, if you have a central air conditioner. The air conditioner works with the furnace fan to transfer cool air throughout the home. We recommend that you change or clean your furnace filter every one-to-three months.
In the case of major malfunctions or new installations, HVAC technicians recommend simultaneously replacing the inside and outside equipment of the air conditioner.
The cost of an air conditioner installation varies and should always be included in the estimate.
A central air conditioner should only be installed by a licensed and trained professional.
With annual maintenance from a qualified AC technician, an air conditioner may last approximately 10-15 years.
The average price range of a typical new high-efficiency central air conditioner in Ontario ranges from $3,500 to $6,000. This price includes standard installation from a fully-insured, licensed company, at least a one year warranty and all required licenses for installation.
The cost of an air conditioner is dependent on four factors:
- Environmental choices, including energy efficiency, sound output, air filtration sizes (which depend on allergies or other sensitivities), and comfort-enhancing options.
- Personal choices including extended warranties, maintenance plans and guarantees.
- Technical requirements, including the size of your home, floor plan, number of stories, existing ductwork and BTU load.
- Code requirements including safety, licensing and building code requirements.
Every home is unique and a number of factors impact the air conditioner size needed, including the size and age of your home, air flow, how many windows you have, insulation, and specific homeowner requirements. To make sure you get the air conditioner size that best suits your needs, it’s critical to have a professional visit your home to complete an evaluation to calculate heat gain and air flow. Incorrect sizing of an air conditioner may cause a shortened life of the equipment, higher utility costs and diminished comfort because the home isn’t cooling down or dehumidifying correctly.
