Your Guide To Central Air This Summer

July 7th, 2014 by admin


For most people around the country, air conditioning is not optional. Those enduring the hot summer months know that central air is must. If you’re looking to install AC in your home this summer, we have all your need-to-know information from the cost, process and what happens after maintenance!



A main concern for most people wanting to install central air is the cost. It’s important to remember that when budgeting for the installation of central air what the long term benefits are.  Most central air installations cost anywhere from $4,000-$8,000 depending on the quality of furnace, which may have people taking a step back from making such a large purchase. The investment of a new high efficiency furnace can save you up to 50% in operating costs versus an existing ten-year-old furnace. Newer furnaces are cleaner therefore don’t work as hard, meaning you pay less in your monthly utility bills. So, even though the cost seems staggering, the long term cost proves to be beneficial for your home and wallet!


Like we said, the price range for central air can vary. The main factors deciding the cost are typically:

  • The size of the home
  • The number of windows in the home
  • The quality of the insulation in the home
  • The SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) of the unit selected for installation

These factors help your JK Mechanical contractor decide what system that is best equipped for your home, so you aren’t paying too much. You can request a quote for your home today!
