Home HVAC Installation
Whether you are building a new home or replacing an old system, One Call Service is here to answer your questions and help you choose the best possible heating and cooling system for your needs. A home HVAC installation can include traditional air conditioning, furnace or heat pump, air duct system, and control systems, as well as more custom pieces like humidifiers, dehumidifiers, and special filtration systems.
No matter what you’re looking for in your HVAC system, One Call Service can help you properly install it and ensure that it runs efficiently for as long as possible. Proper installation is essential to your HVAC system’s efficiency, efficacy, and overall lifespan. Your HVAC system is made up of several large pieces of equipment and a complex system of ducts and electric work. All of that has to be taken into consideration during installation, along with the manufacturer brand, size of the space and equipment, and the customer’s desired cost of living.
How Much Does It Cost to Install HVAC?
The cost of installing your new HVAC system can vary widely depending on the circumstances. Brand, grade, size, complexity, cost of living, ductwork, and customization can all affect the total cost of your HVAC installation.
One Call Service works with every major brand and HVAC manufacturer available, including:
- American Standard
- Ultra Aire
Our HVAC technicians are all trained and certified to work with an array of equipment and HVAC systems. They are all trained to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision that you’re completely comfortable with. After performing a thorough analysis of your home, the available space, and your budget, your One Call Specialist tech will provide you with all the available options and make recommendations based on your unique circumstances.
Most HVAC brands make different lines of each version of their equipment called grades. These grades are, essentially, the “basic”, “average”, “better”, and “best” versions of each piece of equipment. Just like when you’re buying a car, premium features and customizations all can add to the price.
For HVAC systems, customizations make certain functions easier and more efficient, and different grades may vary in size, weight, capacity, and performance. Generally speaking, the higher the grade, the higher the performance of your system.
We usually recommend going with the highest grade you can afford to lower your costs in the long run. But your One Call Service technician will be able to inform you of the options within your budget range and make the best possible decision for your circumstances.
Every HVAC component comes in a range of sizes. When we say size, we are referring to the equipment’s physical size, but it’s also an indication of capacity. The higher the capacity of your unit, generally speaking, the more it will cost.
The general ranges look something like this:
40,000 BTU to 140,000 BTU
Split system air conditioners & heat pumps
18,000 BTU (1.5 tons) to 60,000 BTU (5 tons)
Mini split air conditioners & heat pumps
6,000 BTU to 42,000 BTU
BTU stands for “British Thermal Unit” and is a measurement of energy. The higher the BTU, the higher the capacity.
Higher capacity units work harder and more efficiently, making them perfect for large spaces and homes concerned about energy efficiency. Lower capacity units are cheaper, but if you choose one too small for your home, it will struggle to keep up and break down more rapidly.
Job complexity can play a large role in the overall cost of your HVAC installation. The more difficult the job, the longer it will take to complete. For example, installing a new furnace in a walkout basement will cost significantly less than installing the same unit in a crawlspace or attic because it takes longer and requires special equipment and training.
Similarly, the larger your HVAC system, the more it will cost to install it. For instance, if you need a new heating system installed, that will cost less than if you need a new heating system, new air ducts, and a new air conditioning unit.
How Long Does HVAC Installation Take?
The exact length of time your HVAC installation takes will depend on how big the job is. Installing one piece of equipment in a ready-made space may take only a few hours. Installing a full system, including ductwork, could take a day or two depending on the size of your home.
No matter the complexity of the job, One Call Service is dedicated to getting you back to a comfortable temperature as soon as possible. We always strive for a 24-hour turnaround when possible. If it’s not possible, we’ll work with your schedule to ensure that the project is completed ASAP.
