BUYING A NEW SYSTEM

ESTIMATE NEW HVAC COSTS

Multiple factors like where you live and how your home was constructed affect the cost of a new system and installation.

The price of a new Trane HVAC unit or system varies based on the type of system you choose, efficiency rating, cooling or heating stages, unit size as well as where you live and the difficulty of the installation. Because so many factors can affect the price of a Trane air conditioner, furnace or heat pump, listing a true price for your home isn’t always possible - or accurate. However, here are some average HVAC installation costs homeowners can expect to help you plan. For a custom estimate, contact your local Trane Comfort Specialist or link here for a Free Home System Estimate.

  • Thermometer

The good news is that you can save on your installation costs with tax credits, special offers and manufacturer rebates. You can also make the expense more manageable by taking advantage of flexible financing options. Ultimately, a licensed dealer will need to assess your home and install a system that’s perfect for you and your budget.

These are the key factors your Trane HVAC expert will take into consideration for your estimate.

1. Climate and Region

Where you live affects your efficiency

Region and climate matter when finding the right system for your home and saving energy. According to DOE efficiency standards, the same size home located in the southern half of the United States will require a larger capacity air conditioning system than a similar home in the northern half of the United States. Of course, a home located in the northern half of the United States will need a larger heating capacity requirement than a home in the south.

2. Your home's construction

Heating and cooling your home starts with the foundation

Homes with well-insulated windows, doors, walls, roofs, attics, floors, basements, and crawl spaces, along with sealed exterior cracks and seams, typically require less air conditioning and heating capacity than homes that are not well-insulated. Also, if you have a large home, you’ll need a larger unit or even multiple systems — which will cost more.

Consider tax credits for upgrades

3. Existing ductwork in your home

Your ductwork can maximize comfort and minimize energy use

Ductwork is the air distribution system in your home that directs and delivers heated or cooled air. The ducting plays a crucial role in determining how comfortable your home is from room to room. When properly designed and installed, a duct system can maximize comfort and minimize energy use.

If it is time to replace your system, you might need to consider making ductwork improvements at the same time your dealer installs the new system as it can directly impact the performance and operation of your system. New ductwork can cost around $3,000-$10,000 depending on the size of the unit or system, the extensiveness of the ductwork project, the materials used and the labor intensiveness. Replacing ductwork can take a few days to install when done correctly.

4. Project difficulty

Challenging installations can cost more

It’s the details that will often drive your price higher, but usually they’re worth it to get the job done right. Additional costs will show up when your project is extra challenging. If you have a hard-to-access space for your system, live in a historic home that requires retrofitting, need custom parts or additional insulation, you’ll see your HVAC installed price increase.

Look at financing options

5. Special features

Extras can add up to extra comfort

Your cost can also go up by adding on enhancements like climate zones with a ComfortLink™ II Zoning System or a Trane CleanEffects™ air cleaner. These added features mean added comfort and are worth the extra expense. You’ll also pay a little more for a system with a higher SEER rating, but you’ll see savings in your energy bills.
