The cost to install an air conditioning unit varies widely depending on the weight of the unit and several other variables. You can expect to spend anywhere from $3,000 to $12,000.
Some variables that might impact the final cost of an air conditioner installation might include the home location, the size of the home, the quality of the unit and the chosen installation team. The condition of the home's insulation and duct work can also affect the final costs. A basic window unit will require a relatively inexpensive installation, while for a high-quality, large system will creep toward the higher end of the scale. A 2013 Angie’s List member survey saw customers reporting paying an average of $5,043.64.
