A common question from homeowners considering the purchase of an Goodman® heating and cooling system is “how much will the installed system cost”. Since a Goodman heating and cooling system must be sized and installed in your specific home, there is not a MSRP (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) for Goodman brand heating and cooling products. The variability in your local weather conditions, the construction type and age of your home, the complexity of the installation, the quality of your existing duct work and any regulations can all influence how much a new energy efficient fully installed Goodman heating and cooling system will cost.
To get an estimate of what a new Goodman heating and cooling system will cost, your independent Goodman brand dealer can provide a local estimate after coming to your home to inspect your current heating and cooling system, as well as discussing your home comfort expectations. When you call your local Goodman brand dealer, they will give you a quote that includes all associated costs.
Factors that can determine the cost of a new HVAC system:
Local weather conditions: The area in which you live helps determine the needs of your HVAC system. Households in southern states like Texas are likely to have a heavy need for air conditioning. Households in the northern states and parts of Canada probably have a much higher need for heating. Your independent Goodman brand dealer will be familiar with the weather patterns in your local market and can ensure that you have the right recommendation to fit your family’s needs.
Construction type and age of your home: The type of home you have, as well as the age of it, can impact the size and capacity needs of your heating and cooling system. For instance, the level of insulation that your home provides will help drive the size (capacity) of your system. Homes that have high insulation levels or values may allow the use of lower capacity units. Having weatherized doors, walls, roofs and windows are ways to help maximize the size of a heating or cooling system.
Complexity of the installation: An Goodman brand air conditioning and heating system needs to be professionally installed by a local Goodman brand dealer. Sometimes, this can be a fairly straightforward process if the indoor and outdoor units are easily accessible and have many of the correct pre-existing components. However, that is often not the case and your local Goodman brand dealer will need to work in tight spaces and update key elements of your existing system. Doing so may require additional labor and parts, which could impact the cost of the installation.
Quality of your existing duct work: Ducts are the air distribution method using for a central air conditioning or heating system. The quality of these ducts play an integral role in ensuring that your new Goodman heating and cooling system works effectively and efficiently. If your local Goodman brand dealer finds that your existing duct work is inadequate, they will need to modernize the duct work, which can cause additional labor and parts costs included in the new system installation.
Regulations: Many local municipalities and states have specific requirements that determine the type and method of installation for a heating or cooling system that can be installed. Often, these local codes will impact your system cost by influencing the efficiency, sound or underlying technology of the Goodman brand heating and air conditioning system that you purchase. Your Goodman brand dealer will install your new heating and cooling system that meets all required codes.
