Air Conditioning Prices
Whether you are on a tight budget, or are simply curious how much the air conditioner of your choice will cost you, you’ve come to the right place.
Here is a cost breakdown of air conditioners based on the five main types: central air conditioning, split unit air conditioning, window unit air conditioning, ductless air conditioning, and packaged air conditioning.
Central Air Conditioning
Perhaps the most popular home air conditioning system, a central air conditioning unit for a 2,000-square-foot house costs between $3,500 and $4,000 (with the proper ductwork already in place). If ductwork needs to be installed, the cost can double to $7,000-$8,000.

Split Unit Air Conditioners
On average, split unit air conditioners cost about $3,000, with another $3,000 in installation costs. High-efficiency systems cost around $500 more, and systems with both heating and cooling abilities are usually about $5,500.
Window Unit Air Conditioning
The cost of a window unit air conditioning will vary depending on the size of the room that needs cooling. To cool a room between 150 and 400 square feet, you can expect units to run from $100 to $300. Units designed for larger rooms will cost $300-$800. Get price estimates for your own home here.
Ductless Air Conditioning System
For a ductless air conditioning system, you can expect to pay between $1,500 and $2,000 per ton (Btu/h) of cooling capacity—usually more than the cost of other types of air conditioning systems.
Packaged Air Conditioning
Packaged air conditioning units fluctuate quite a bit in price—it all depends on the square footage of the room you’re trying to cool, and the number of systems you need for your home. You can get a quick estimate for packaged air conditioning by clicking here.
