Replacing Condenser Unit Cost

As of 2010, HVACs manufactory could no longer produce R22 units as a whole; however, it breaks no regulation to produce as a part. The HVACs manufactory could produce R22 condenser unit and ship it without refrigerant! It is known as “dry condenser unit.” It will cost $1,300 to $2,500 to replace condenser unit.

Our central air conditioner cost $7,000 in NC
by: Kevin

My neighbor replaces his 15 years central air conditioner units. He said compressor fails before winter. They were luck it didn't die on summer.

The contractor replaces their outdoor units and the indoor units for $7,600. I don't know if this is good deal. This is just the central ac units.

This is from single estimation! My neighbor didn't bother shopping for contractor, so they decide to go with first estimation.

My house were about the same years as their. Our air conditioning units had been acting crazy last summer. I don't want it break down this coming summer.

We were getting estimation from Sear for $6,980 and local contractor for $7,000.

This is just to replace central air conditioner units not the duct works. I think this is good deal, since our neighbor paid $7,600.

How much does someone paid a contractor to replace indoor and outdoor unit in NC area?

Very Reasonable Hvac Cost
by: Jim

I have a 2 story house. 1 unit for each floor. Replaced both 8 seer units (can`t remember the brand) with two Trane XL15i 2 ton units.

Units were relocated from the back of the house to the side. Some new duct work as needed but not all. Paid $9200.00 for both, not each including installation.

I also got a bonus because when the heating and air conditioner company ordered the units, they did not have the standard unit for under the house. They sent an air purifying unit at no extra charge. Also was installed at no extra charge.

My heating and air conditioner may have been trying to make me feel good, but he said if I would have ordered an air purifying unit it would have cost another $1200.00. After the new units were installed my electric bill went from $175.00 month to $92.00 month. Checked several companies for price.

Company 1 - 12000.00 without relocating units
Company 2 - 14000.00 without relocating units
Company 3 - 9200.00 with relocating the units

Highly recommend thoroughly shopping around before hiring anybody to replace your units.
