HVAC REPLACEMENT NEAR ME Factors Affecting Your Replacement Costs

When deciding whether to repair or replace an HVAC unit, you must consider the age of the unit, the cost of needed repairs, and the unit’s performance and efficiency to make an informed, cost-effective choice.


When you decide to take the plunge and invest in HVAC replacement, understanding the factors affecting your replacement costs can help you prepare better.

How much does it cost to replace an HVAC system?

Due to the upfront costs of a new heating and cooling system, homeowners may be on the fence whether to repair or to replace their unit.


You’ll spend about $7,000 on average, but the costs typically range from $5,000 to $10,000.  For new installs, you’re more likely going to pay around $1,500 to $12,500.

Factors affecting your replacement cost:

1. Labor Costs

The labor cost to replace or install an HVAC system is $1,000 to $3,000, depending on factors such as the size of your home, the unit type and size of your furnace and AC, etc.


Choosing a competent HVAC company is critical, at this point. You want to work only with HVAC technicians who have training and experience in safely and properly installing HVAC units.


This isn’t the job for an average DIY-er. An improperly installed unit can negatively impact your comfort and put your own safety at risk.

2. The Size of Your Home

A unit that’s appropriate for the size of your space will prevent unreasonably high energy costs.


Essentially, the bigger the room, the more powerful your AC or furnace should be, and the higher the BTU (British Thermal Unit)  rating required.


For example, homes that are 700 to 1500 square feet will require a BTU rating between 40,000 to 60,000. You can expect the cost of furnace installation to be around $2,000 to $3,000.

3. Ductwork

Ductwork can increase the cost of replacing your heating or cooling system. For most projects, duct repair costs about $200 to $700, depending on a few factors. You may have to pay more for complicated tasks.

4. The HVAC Unit of Your Choice

The brand, efficiency, type and size of your AC or furnace can heavily impact the cost of replacement.

For example, an AC unit with a higher SEER rating is more expensive. You’ll pay even more for longer-lasting premium brands.


A quality, efficient heating and cooling system is a major investment. If your existing unit isn’t performing well, you might be wondering if replacing it is the right call.
