How Much Does an Air Conditioner Cost?

As summer approaches and Alberta begins to thaw out after a long winter, homeowners should be starting to consider heat management for the summer months. There are many different types of air conditioners for homes that could be a viable option for your particular needs. If you’re looking for air conditioner installation in Edmonton, contact Furnace Solutions and set up an appointment so you can enjoy the warm summer months comfortably at a fair price.

Because air conditioner installation costs can vary, we wanted to give you a better idea of what determines pricing so you can understand why AC systems cost what they do.

Load Calculation

Before you decide on an air conditioning unit, a registered air conditioning specialist should conduct a load calculation. This is simply a calculation of the space that needs to be cooled and the total energy required to do so. This calculation will provide you with the information needed to choose the best options that will accommodate your desired area and the best type of air conditioner for your home. Operating an air conditioning unit past its capabilities is dangerous for the unit and for your family. It is always advised to call the professionals in when you’re dealing with anything HVAC related.

Existing Framework

Some air conditioning units require ducts and support framework in order to properly perform. If you’ve already had an air conditioning unit in your home, chances are it’s possible to use the existing framework and save some money. This may be your home’s first air conditioning unit and that’s okay too, in these instances the cost of installation will reflect the additional support work and time required to do the job right.


Like any other home installation or renovation, the amount and quality of materials used will affect the cost. The size of your home impacts the amount of materials needed to properly cool the desired spaces, and that reflects the time it takes to properly complete the job.  

The importance of quality heating and air conditioning in Edmonton is more significant than other locations as the temperatures change so aggressively within the span of a few months. It is highly recommended that a professional installs your air conditioning unit in order to provide you the best results, and to keep your family cool and comfortable this coming summer.
