April 9, 2010, Newsletter Issue #109: Operating, Installation Costs Vary

Tip of the Week

How much it costs to install your new central air conditioner is determined after an inspection of your home. As a consumer, it makes sense to know the factors that influence installation and operating costs.

- The installer first will need to check your furnace to see if the ductwork has to be upgraded or modified.
- The installer also will look at your home's electric service to ensure it can handle the increased load of the central air conditioner.
- If you are replacing an existing air conditioner, ask for a new indoor coil that matches the new outdoor unit. If the existing coil is not replaced, your unit will be less efficient and your electricity costs will be higher.
