A good air conditioning system is essential for maintaining the comfort level of your home, especially in summer. High temperatures are uncomfortable and can prevent you from enjoying your free time.

Cost of ductwork
There are a few factors that can affect the cost of ductwork. The first is whether or not you’re willing to spend money on a professional installer. A licensed installer will charge $5 to $10 per linear foot of ductwork. This cost is higher than if you decide to do it yourself because duct installation requires experience and licenses. In addition, a professional installer will make sure that your system is properly installed to give you even heating and cooling throughout the home. The process usually takes from one to two days, compared to a week or more if you try to do it yourself. You’ll also want to research the installers before deciding whether to hire them.
Ductwork installation costs depend on the size of your home and the size of the system you need. Ducts come in many shapes and sizes, and prices vary accordingly. Different duct systems also require different duct layouts and installation sizes. This may increase the overall cost of the project.
Cost of thermostat
A thermostat can be expensive. A non-programmable unit can cost from $20 to $80, while a programmable unit may cost as much as CAD $650 or more. Installing a programmable thermostat is not difficult and can be done in around an hour. These thermostats measure the resistance of air and turn on and off automatically if the reading is higher than the preset temperature.
The repair of a thermostat can range from $100 to $300, depending on the type, model, and warranty status. Most thermostats need battery or wire replacement, but repairs can also involve troubleshooting smart models. A damaged thermostat will not register the temperature or trigger the HVAC system.
Cost of ductless mini-split system
The cost of a ductless mini-split system depends on several factors, including the size of the unit, the insulation level of the home, and the amount of refrigerant used. The cost also varies depending on the type of system and how long the power lines must run. A ductless system can lower energy costs by 20 to 60 percent compared to central air conditioning.
The cost of a ductless mini-split system is higher if it is being installed in a new home. The cost includes labor, materials, and installation. The unit itself will cost around $2,000 to $3,000 plus installation costs. There are several ways to decrease this cost. The more efficient the unit is, the lower the cost.
