Cost of Replacing Air Conditioning and Heating (Calculator)

At City Air Experts, we understand that replacing air conditioning and heating units is a big investment that needs to be carefully analyzed before making a decision.

We put together the following calculator to help you understand the cost of keeping vs. replacing air conditioning and heating systems. Of course, there are too many variables to consider but this tool will provide you with a better understanding of different factors to be considered to make a decision.

Our calculator is broken down in five different areas:

  1. Inflation rate: If you decide to replace your unit in a couple of years, the price that you get today it won’t be the same as a couple of years from now.
  2. Today’s (and future) repairs: Old HVAC units are expensive to maintain.
  3. Utility Bill: In today’s world, air conditioning and heating systems are 10x more efficient than how they were 10 years ago. So, one of the benefits of replacing your unit is to get a lower energy bill. Check this calculator to better understand potential energy savings using a high-efficiency unit. You can also visit the Energy Star webpage.
  4. Other Costs: Some utility companies give incentives to customers for replacing air conditioning and heating systems. Ask your utility company about potential discounts.
  5. Today’s cost of replacing your Unit.
