If you’re looking for a smart way to save on AC installation, Irish Heating and Air has got answers for you. Whether you have an old home. a new one, or are renting a place, installing a new AC unit can get expensive – fast. However, many homeowners don’t realize that you can save on a new ac installation by adapting your old stand and duct work.
Adapt Your New AC to Fit the Old Stand
When installing a new air conditioner, you’ll typically be paying not only for the new AC unit, but for a new stand and mounting brackets as well. A new air conditioner can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $6,000 dollars, including all parts and labor.
Want to cut down on the price tag a little bit?
By allowing your HVAC specialist to adapt the new AC to your old stand, you can save anywhere from $100-300 dollars. While that might not sound like much, that’s cash in your pocket that you can use to pay for new school supplies and clothes for your high-schooler, gas for your workday commute, and more.
Adapt Your New AC to Fit Old Duct Work
If you are upgrading from an ancient AC to a newer, high-efficiency AC, you’ll probably need to install new ductwork as well. New ductwork can get pricey pretty fast. It costs approximately $50 per foot of ductwork, adding up to $1,000-5,000 to replace the ductwork in a single family home.
Not something that was in your price range?
It doesn’t have to be.
Adapting your new AC to fit your old duct work (if it is in good condition) can save you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. Instead of replacing the entire duct line, your HVAC specialist can simply add a small portion of ductwork that connect your old duct line to your new AC unit.
Don’t be afraid to ask your AC installer about smart ways to save on AC installation. At Irish Heating and Air, we’ll always do our part to give you the best deal and at the best price.
