In some or our recent blogs we’ve talked about ways you can troubleshoot problems you may be having with your thermostat and/or central air conditioning unit.
Unfortunately, while these types of units are designed to last for a long time, they won’t last forever. At some point, it’s better to stop investing money in repairs and instead, start to research a more long-term solution.
If the latter sounds like you, it may be time to consider replacing your central AC unit altogether.
We get it. This is probably not one of the things you wanted to do this summer, yet unfortunately, when it comes to home appliance failure, this type of thing rarely operates on your timeline. When your AC decides it’s had enough, it will let you know its had enough. There’s no point in arguing with it.
(Besides, as you probably know, arguing with an inanimate object won’t get you anywhere.)
If you’re concerned about the cost to replace your AC unit this summer, the good news is that there are a number of options that are available.
But how much is this going to cost?
Unfortunately, trying to pinpoint the exact cost to replace a central AC unit in Loveland, Colorado can be tricky because there are several different things that need to be factored into the equation.
First, you’ll want to consider the size of your home. If you live in a 5,000 square foot ranch house, the cost to replace will be more than if you live in a 900 square-foot, two-bedroom condo. The larger the system you need to buy, the greater the cost will be.
Second—do you need to replace an all-in-one HVAC, or do you have a separate, outdoor AC unit?
Third, are you wanting to cool your entire home or are you wanting to only have cool air in the rooms you occupy? In this case, you might want to weigh the pros and cons of installing a zone-based cooling system. Mini splits are ideal for garages, granny flats, bonus rooms and for add-on rooms to your home that were built without duct work.
According to 2018 data, the average cost for AC replacement will run between $3,700 and $7,200. At the same time, depending on what you buy, the cost could be as low as $1,800. On the high end, you could pay more than $10,000.
Like we said, without having more information regarding the size of your home and what your goals are for your new central AC unit, trying to provide an accurate quote is like trying to hit a moving target.
