Good heating and cooling systems are essential to the comfort level of any indoor space. No one wants to roast in the summer or freeze in the winter. The indoors should be a refuge from unpleasant weather. But how much does and HVAC installation cost?
The average cost of an HVAC installation depends mostly on the size of your house. The bigger your house is, the more itâ€™s going to cost. If youâ€™re starting fresh with a completely brand new system, it will be more expensive that if youâ€™re reusing some old parts. HVAC installations can involve replacing air conditioning units, heating units, ducts, or even switching to a new type of system. Also, like most things, where you live affects the cost as well. Getting HVAC installed will cost more on the east and west coasts than it will in less expensive areas.
In general, an HVAC installation in a 1,300 square foot house should cost somewhere between $3,500 to $5,000. The best thing to do is to shop around and get estimates from local contractors. Once you have 4 to 5 estimates youâ€™ll be able to get a better idea of the fair market price in your region. Usually, somewhere around $4,000 is generally a reasonable price for an HVAC installation in a medium sized home.
