How Much Does Air Conditioning Cost?

Home air conditioner installed

If you are one of the few homeowners in Australia who don't have an air conditioner, then the summer months may have persuaded you that you really need one. You may be considering air conditioner installation in Bundaberg or surrounding areas, but want to know more about the costs involved with buying and running an AC unit before making a decision. 

With help from Zane Dick Electrical, you can find out whether the unit will be worth the expense. 


The Cost Of The Unit

The most expensive part of the AC unit will always be that initial investment. Air conditioners are quite large, and use a fair amount of power, so it is no surprise that the average domestic cost can be on average $5000+. 

However, the price of the unit will depend very much upon the variety you choose, with split systems only costing around $600, and ducted systems at the more expensive end of the range. Choosing the right system for your home will essentially determine the cost of installation. 


Fitting Your Air Conditioner

The cost of hiring people like Zane Dick Electrical to fit your air conditioning is also dependent upon exactly what needs to be done. For example, a split system unit will be more affordable to install than a ducted system which requires days of work.

The Cost Of Running An Air Conditioner

The other major outlay for AC units will be the running cost. This will depend upon the electricity costs for your area, and can be around $120 a month during the warmer weather. This may increase your electricity bill by more than $1,000, and is affected by how much you use it, the size of your home and other related factors.


Air Conditioner Maintenance & Repairs

Like other machines, air conditioners need to have regular maintenance and replacement of worn parts. The cost of asking Zane Dick Electrical crew to perform maintenance on your unit will depend upon the work that needs to be done on the unit to keep it working correctly for another year.
