AC Replacement Costs

AC replacement cost in Denver, CO can be as low as $4,400 including all parts and labor;

Most of our customers spent around $4,700 – $7,200 to replace their AC in 2022*. The total cost for air conditioner replacement varies based on the type of system, the energy efficiency of the AC unit and the square footage of your home.

Most central air conditioning units last around 15-20 years on average; Well maintained air conditioner units can last as long as 20 years. The time to replace an air conditioning system is when the unit is beyond repair due to age or parts availability or if it uses R22 refrigerant.

As with everything in the 21st century, the newer model central air conditioning systems are often quieter, more efficient and provide more features which may be reason enough to upgrade your AC. The energy savings can help you save money while newer features such as variable speed can help reduce the outdoor unit noise.

16 SEER Air Conditioning System (Indoor Coil + Outdoor Condenser)$4,100 to $7,900

AC Installation Costs

Have a house that has ductwork but has never had Central Air conditioning before? You’re looking for a “fresh” AC installation. Fresh air conditioner installation cost in Colorado can be as low as $5,200 including all parts and labor but the total cost varies based on a variety of factors such as the square footage of your home, the electrical panel’s placement and space inside it, how far the copper lines have to be added and the location of the furnace inside your home.

Most of our customers spent around $5,700 – $7,200 to install a new AC in a house that hasn’t had it before in 2022*. The total cost to install a AC can vary widely.

Many homes in Colorado have a gas furnace but no air conditioning; this is very common and central AC can typically be added to your existing system. If your home has no duct work or forced-air heating system (using a boiler for heating, for example), you may want to consider a minisplit system.

AC TypeCost Range
14 SEER Air Conditioning System (Coil, Condenser, Lineset, 220v Circuit)$4,600 to $8,300
16 SEER Air Conditioning System (Coil, Condenser, Lineset, 220v Circuit)$5,600 to $9,500

AC Installation Process

The AC installation process is carried out by our professional HVAC technicians who will evaluate the property, check the capacity of your existing duct-work system, and recommend the appropriate unit for your home. Then our AC installation team will consult you on where the AC unit should be placed, install the AC unit, connect the electrical and ductwork and test the unit for proper operation. Finally, the technician will clean up the installation area and provide you with instructions on how to operate and maintain the unit.

For air conditioning units, due to how complicated the AC units can be, it is extremely important to have a professional installation completed so your new AC unit can last decades.
