Extreme summer heat and humidity can make it hard to think straight and perform day-to-day tasks. Even in Southern Ontario (Toronto & GTA), the hot and humid climate in the months of June through September makes a good AC system a necessity!
Typically, homeowners in Toronto & GTA can expect to spend anywhere from $1,800 to $4,600 to install their heating and cooling system. Obviously, the type of HVAC system you select will be a big determinant in the cost per square foot. Typically the price is from $2.00 to $6.00 per square foot. For instance, installation on a 2,000-square-foot home at $2.00 would have you spending roughly $4,000.
Another cost variable when having your heating and cooling system replaced is the tons. A 2-ton AC system would cost about $2,600 whereas a 4-ton would be roughly $3,700.
In Toronto & GTA central AC systems are required to meet a minimum of 13 SEER. Those that have a SEER of 14.5 or higher are considered to have a high standard of energy efficiency. Though a higher SEER will cost more money upfront, it will save you money in the long run since it is so much more efficient. Learn how to improve HVAC Efficiency in our blog.
Different brands of AC will yield different installation prices. For instance, a brand of window air conditioner will cost less to install than a brand of central heating and air. In addition, the higher rated the brand, the more it will cost to install as they will be higher quality and last a lot longer with fewer repair costs.
As with anything, there will always be something else needed to add to the final cost. So do not be alarmed if the end total is a little more than what was quoted. Removing the old AC unit will add an additional cost depending on the same variants as before including brand, tons, square footage, and SEER rating.
