Install A New HVAC Unit
Is your HVAC system older than your first child? Has it been performing for 10+ years? Experiencing heat or cold waves in certain rooms at various times of the year? If you answered “yes” to any of the above, it may be time to start considering the installation of a new HVAC unit. The worst thing you can do is wait until it completely dies.
Taking a proactive approach and reach out to a local professional to see if you need to install a new HVAC unit, or simply just have your existing one serviced and upgraded. You might just find that replacing your old unit with a new energy efficient one can end up offsetting the costs of the upgrade over time.

Choosing Your System
If your HVAC pro says its time to install a new unit you’ll want to take careful consideration of your options. For most US climate zones units with the highest efficiency ratings combine a natural gas furnace for heating and an electric system for cooling. And depending on your current setup it might be advisable to replace just one portion of your system (i.e. just the heating or just the cooling portion).
Regardless, we suggest looking for Energy Star rated models as these typically result in 10-15% greater energy efficiency than traditional units.
Installing the Right Size Unit
Upgrading for efficiency is a good idea, but don’t get tempted to upgrade to a larger system thinking it will heat/cool your home faster. Selecting a model that was made for the approximate square footage of your home is always the best way to go. Using a system that was designed for a larger square footage will result in reduced efficiency, higher utility bills and poor operation.
Factors Affecting Unit Installation Costs
Price is a major concern for most homeowners. As well it should be. HVAC unit installs range widely in costs depending on your unique situation with prices ranging from $6000-$17,000 in some cases.
Here are a few things that can affect prices:
• Square footage of your home
• Equipment brand
• SEER values
• Project difficulty
