A functional HVAC system benefits you in more ways than you could imagine. An HVAC system, apart from maintaining an ideal temperature, eliminates harmful allergens and microorganisms in the air from outside. A functional HVAC system will increase the livability of your building, and improve the health and quality of life of the residents. If you are not using an HVAC, consider getting one installed a necessity. HVAC systems, just like other systems, develop problems over time. To get the most out of your system, you need to get it inspected, maintained, and repaired regularly.

An HVAC technician has an eye for detail, and can detect problems that can otherwise go undetected for weeks or even months. If, however, your system is beyond repair or is nearing the end of its service life, get it replaced. When considering HVAC repair, replacement, and installation, one of the most important factors to consider is the overall project cost.
Want to get your old HVAC replaced? Expect to pay between $4,820 and $9,350. The cost of getting an HVAC replaced with a new system with ductwork is usually between $6,820 and $12,350. The actual cost will depend on several factors such as:
|HVAC Replacement||1 -2 Days||$4,820 – $9,350|
|HVAC Install With Ductwork||3 – 7 Days||$6,820 – $12,350|
|HVAC Install With Add-Ons||4 – 8 Days||$13,000 – $17,000|
HVAC contractors usually have three types of installation packages – the change out package, the full installation package, and the full install package. While the change out package includes a new system installation and a new heating system, the full installation package includes HVAC installation (with necessary equipment and ductwork). The full install package includes HVAC installation plus installation of upgrades such as a zoning system.

Be prepared to pay an extra $3,300-$4,500 to get a zoning system installed. When calculating your HVAC installation cost, remember to factor in:
On average, an HVAC system (for a 1,000 square foot home) costs $1,900 without installation. The actual cost will depend on the size of your home, and the brand and efficiency rating of your system.
