Air conditioners are wonderful appliances for hot summers. They cool homes and apartments, improve air quality, and reduce humidity. However, they are not an insignificant investment. This video breaks down the cost of air conditioners so you can budget before reaching out to AC services.
Entry-level air conditioners usually range from $4400-$8000. A few of the models offered in this range are the TRANE XR13 and XL16. They are single-stage cooling, which means they will cool a home but aren’t the most efficient. They’re a good fit for someone with low utility costs who isn’t interested in energy savings from increased efficiency.
Mid-range air conditioners range from $6200-$9500. A few examples are the TRANE XR17 and XL18. They are two-stage cooling, which provides a more even temperature for homes. They’re great for long-term owners who are looking for energy savings over a long-term period. If you aren’t living in the home long term, entry-level air conditioners are best.
High-end air conditioners range from $8200-$13000. The TRANE XV18 and XV20 are examples of high-end AC units. They feature variable speed cooling for maximum efficiency and the most consistent temperature throughout a home.
