Order Now: How Much Should your Contractor Charge?
Air conditioner manufacturers don't publish a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Homeowners can't call up their local HVAC wholesaler and buy a furnace directly. Many cooling contractors prefer to work on a fixed cost basis, and are reluctant to share the details of their time and materials.
Will you be able to negotiate a fair price if you are not sure how much your air conditioner actually costs?
FurnaceCompare is proud to announce the availability of the Summer 2009 Central Air Conditioner Price Report.
This 20-page report examines the retail prices of more than 300 central air conditioners and heat pumps and provides you with a thorough and authoritative look at how much your next central air conditioner should cost. Each of the 304 models includes the brand name, model numbers, configuration (condenser, evaporator coil, air handler, electric heater, heat pump), BTUs per hour, tonnage, efficiency ratings (SEER, EER and COP where relevant) and price in $US.
