Air Conditioning Installation

We have recommendations for new air conditioning systems, but we will install any brand you prefer. Let’s discuss your square footage, lifestyle, and occupants. Based on these factors, you may decide zoned air conditioning, a heat pump, or ductless AC works better.

Cost of AC Installation

Installation costs are quoted based on several variables. The cost for new AC systems varies by brand too. Here’s a national average*:

  • $1,076 Goodman
  • $1,207 Bryant
  • $1,213 Rheem/Ruud
  • $1,217Amana
  • $1,277 Heil

Air Conditioning Replacement

The best way to prolong the life of your AC system is maintenance. We recommend annual spring “tune-ups” for air conditioning systems. This prepares you for some of the intense summer weather we see here in Arkansas and Missouri. 

The national average AC replacement is $4,631*. Cost depends on existing ductwork, the type and brand of unit to be installed, and the size of the AC unit in tons. A ductless mini-split system replacement costs about $5,600. These are median prices; costs may be substantially higher or lower depending on where you live in the USA.

Signs You Need New AC Installation or Replacement

Is it time for a new air conditioner? Unfortunately, the signs aren’t always obvious. Here at Bud Anderson, we want you to have clear guidance about when is the best time to consider the important step of air conditioning installation in Northwest Arkansas. Here are some signs to watch for that indicate it’s time to think about a new AC system.

  • Age After about 10 years, an air conditioner will start losing efficiency and effectiveness. It’s time to start thinking about or planning for replacement.
  • Efficiency If the SEER rating on our air conditioner is 13 or below, you will save significantly with a new one. The savings you get on your energy bills will eventually offset the cost of the new system.
  • Frequent breakdownsIf your system is regularly breaking down, causing you to call Bud Anderson for AC repair on a regular basis, you may save by replacing the system. You will also have fewer headaches and hot, uncomfortable days with a new, functional system.
  • Costly repairAlways weigh the cost of a big repair against the cost of a new unit. If the repair cost is about half of a new AC installation, replacement is usually more cost effective.
  • Poor comfortIf your air conditioner isn’t keeping your home cool enough, there is a problem. The system could be failing, or it could be poorly sized for the home. Replacing it could improve the comfort of your home.
  • R-22 refrigerant – R-22 is quickly being phased out in favor of R410A refrigerant. If your system still uses R-22, consider upgrading to a newer model that uses the improved, more affordable refrigerant.

Some of the frequently asked questions we receive about air conditioning repair and replacement include:

What is IAQ?

Indoor air quality has become a subject of concern more than ever before, and with good reason. The air we breathe should be clean and comfortable. If you have infants, elderly, furry family members, or loved ones with frequent illnesses or allergies, you need to learn more about our IAQ services:

When it comes to air conditioner systems, is bigger better?

You’d think so, but no. If your AC unit is oversized, it will cycle on and off too much. (That can increase monthly energy bills.) You’ll have uneven temperatures despite what the thermostat is set for, and humidity may increase, so it will feel hotter than it is.

We’ve served Northwest Arkansas and Southwest Missouri for over 34 years. That’s how you can be sure you’ll get qualified, experienced services at the most affordable prices. We do our best work for our friends and neighbors (like you) because we live here, too. Call (479) 927-2700 or contact Bud Anderson Home Services to learn more.

What Our Customers Say

Professional Service!

Furnace went out during this ridiculous weather and Bud Anderson was the only place I could get through to. First, they made sure I had another heat source (I did) then they arrived very quickly considering the weather. Problem was solved in a timely fashion and now my wife and kids will be very happy! Very professional service!
David V.

Great Customer Service!

I called other companies; some couldn’t get me in for 2 weeks or never called back. Due to having no power in multiple outlets throughout my home, Bud Anderson was able to schedule me first thing in the morning. I like the text updates, who your Technician will be, as well as they are on their way. Dwayne was professional, knowledgeable, and explained everything. Great Customer Service skills! Thank-you~

Quick Response!

Service call scheduled and completed in a quick manner. Aaron definitely knows heating and air systems and took the time to explain the issues and come up with a maintenance plan in the future. I strongly recommend this company.
