How Much Does a New Air Conditioner Cost?

At MTB Mechanical, we get this question all the time. “How much does a new air conditioner cost?” is like asking “How much is a car?” or “How much money do I need for a vacation?” Of course, there are dozens of factors involved in coming up with a specific price for a new air conditioning system, all of which can affect the end-price.A few of these factors include:
The size of your home
The brand of AC you choose
Which company you choose to install and/or purchase from
How large a unit your home needs
How many features your unit has
How energy efficient your unit is
What kind of extra warranties you purchase
As you can see, it’s a tall order to ascribe a specific number to a general air conditioner purchase! That being said, here are a few general pricing guidelines for buying a new AC unit you can use to help jumpstart your research. And when you’re ready for a specific quote for a new air conditioner in Charlotte, call your local MTB Mechanical professional.
