Air Conditioner Installation Services for New Homes

Florida is paradise… but not without air conditioning installed properly.

In Florida, air conditioning is vital if you want to provide a comfortable home environment for you and your family. If you’re building a new home or need to install AC in an existing home, enlist the experts at Hurricane AC to install a customized AC system that suits your project needs and budget.

Air Conditioning Installation Considerations

There are 3 things to consider when installing a new AC system:

Performance: Your AC system should cool your home quickly and thoroughly, and it should work without hiccups. You should never have to take a staycation to get away from a sweltering home with poor or broken AC.

Size of AC Unit: You need to install an AC unit that’s large enough to sufficiently cool your home. You also need to make sure the AC will fit on your property.

Cost: Lots of people have difficulty budgeting an AC installation because of the wide variety of cost factors like labor costs, the price of the AC system, home configuration, etc. Our AC installation specialists can help you choose the best-possible AC system that won’t break your budget.

Energy Efficiency: Energy efficiency is cost efficiency. Your AC system should use as little energy as possible while still maintaining strong performance so you can save money.

— Installation Standards: Your newly installed AC must comply with Florida building codes. Make sure you choose a reliable AC installation service that won’t cut corners.

— Post-Installation Testing: Before your technicians pack up and leave, they should test the AC system to make sure it’s working properly. At Hurricane AC, we’ll always test the newly installed system vigorously to make sure there are no kinks. We want you to be confident that you’ve got what you paid for.

Types of AC Units for New Home Builds

We can install a variety of AC systems for any kind of home.

— Central AC System: Central AC systems consist of an outdoor condenser unit and an indoor evaporator unit. This is one of the most common types of AC systems and it’s optimal for larger homes and homes that have more space within the walls and above ceilings. This system relies on a network of ductwork to distribute air so ductwork installation will be another consideration with this type of AC unit.

— Ductless Mini-Split Systems: A ductless system can heat or cool individual spaces within your home without using ducts that snake through your home. They’re optimal for homes that have inhabitants that prefer different temperatures. They are also an extremely convenient system to use for additional rooms that may not be connected to a central AC system like ADUs and granny flats

— Packaged System: A packaged system adds a heat pump to your cooling unit so your AC system only needs one unit for heating and cooling. These systems are highly energy-efficient and they’re optimal for homes that don’t need frequent heating.

Not sure which type of AC system is right for your project? Let the experts at Hurricane AC guide you. We can install an AC system that’s tailored to your home, budget, and energy needs.

Best Time to Get Air Conditioning Installation

Generally, the best time of year to schedule your air conditioner installation is after the hurricane season, in the late Fall or Spring. This is the best time of year to schedule AC installation because there’s less demand and fewer weather disturbances in SouthFlorida.

However, Hurricane AC can do AC installs year-round so you don’t have to worry about falling behind on your project deadlines.

Cost of Air Conditioner Installation

Most often, AC unit installations will typically cost between $7,000 and $12,000. It all depends on the size of the home / HVAC system. For example, a central air conditioning unit installation will typically cost more than installing a ductless system in smaller homes. Large homes with lots of square footage will require a bigger central air conditioner unit and homes that have multiple temperature zones will require a ductless mini split AC system with several indoor units. Each of these circumstances will increase prices accordingly. 

Air Conditioner Installation AC Cost Factors

The following factors may influence the cost of your AC install:

— Size of the AC System: Larger AC systems are more expensive because they provide more power and cooling ability for larger spaces. They also take longer for technicians to install which can impact labor costs. One of our Hurricane AC professionals can perform a cooling assessment and determine what size air conditioner you need for your home using the correct load calculation.

— Level of Efficiency: The efficiency of an AC system is measured by SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). Systems with higher SEER ratings tend to cost more because they are more energy efficient. Most AC systems ranged from 13 to 25 SEER.

— Warranty: When you get air conditioner installation completed, you can purchase an extended parts warranty (from the manufacturer) and a labor warranty (from Hurricane AC).
