Load Calculation

Load calculations are performed to determine what causes heat in your home, where it originates from and why, in order to get the correct amount of cold air to the appropriate places. This calculation is made with a whole home approach, and takes insulation, tightness, roofing, materials, windows, and other factors into consideration. System capacity (size) should ideally be a product of these factors. For these reasons, using general rules of thumb to size HVAC systems can result in inaccurate sizing. The consequences for choosing the wrong-size HVAC system can be severe. Let M.D Ellis HVAC conduct a professional load calculation for your home or business today based off the following conditions:

  • Insulation: windows, roof and walls
  • Windows: Amount and size
  • Roofing: Type and condition
  • Ductwork: Layout and efficiency

How Much Does An A/C Unit Cost To Install?

How Much Does It Cost For A 2,000 SQ Ft Home?

The average AC unit can cool 400 square feet of your home per 1 ton of air conditioning cooling capacity. This would produce 12,000 BTU’s per 600 square feet. You can take the 2000 sq. ft measurement and divide by 400 sq. ft of cooled area (per 1 ton AC unit cooling capacity) and calculate that you would need a 5.0 TON air conditioner. This A/C system should be able to remove 60,000 BTU’s per hour (5.0 tons x 12,000 BTU’s.) A 5.0 TON air conditioner would cost around $1,980 for the AC unit alone or a total installation cost of $3,690. See full size and cost chart below.

Seer Ratings And Cost

Some of the best AC units will have high energy efficiency capabilities (also known as high SEER ratings) can save you a considerable amount of money on your average heating and cooling energy bill costs. However, a higher energy efficiency level may mean a higher HVAC installation cost. SEER ratings can range from the lowest point of a 13 SEER to the maximum efficiency air conditioners boasting a 24 SEER rating. The average price for a standard AC unit providing a 13 to 14 SEER rating will cost around $2,770 for total unit installation, while a unit with a 24 SEER rating will cost much more initially at around $6,800 for total installation. See chart below for all SEER ratings and central AC costs.

Cost By Brand

Each of the best AC unit brands offer different tiers of central AC units depending on the needs for your home. Air conditioner brands like Goodman, Rheem, and York all have decently priced units in the $2500+ range. Well known brands like American Standard, Trane, and Carrier will be more in the $3,800 + price range and will usually have better quality products depending on your home cooling needs.
