When building your dream home, consider which type of HVAC system will offer the best comfort to your family and the most savings for your wallet. Leaving this decision to the last minute could make those long Minnesota winters and hot summers unbearable, so it’s better to plan early than pay for it later. To help you get started, here’s some helpful information on what you can expect when installing a HVAC system into your new home.
What to Expect with a HVAC System Installation
For new construction homes, a HVAC system refers to central air conditioning and heating units, the ductwork that delivers the air, and the intake and outtake vents. A HVAC system may also include interior climate control installations, such as baseboard heaters and ceiling fans.
The 4 main HVAC system components for a new home include:
- Furnace: This supplies the heat in a HVAC system, usually by natural gas or oil fired, typically housed in the basement or your home’s closet space.
- Air Conditioner: Located outside the home and ran by electricity, this supplies the cool air in a HVAC system.
- Ductwork: Ventilation ductwork moves the hot and cool air throughout the home.
- Thermostat: Responsible for turning on and off the HVAC system, manual and programmable are available.
New Home Air Conditioning, Heating & Ventilation Installations Prices
Thumbtack reports that a HVAC system that covers the whole house can cost anywhere between $4,000 and $12,000 based on a national average. This may sound like quite the range, but the cost will depend on the size of your home, along with what type of system you choose to install. The size, quality, and energy efficiency of the equipment you install, in addition to upgrades such as multiple thermostats, programmable thermostats, and electronic air filters can also influence the final price point.
