Ultimate Outdoor Air Conditioning Buying Guide

Air Conditioner Buying Guide

The outdoor air conditioner unit is an important part of your HVAC system. Containing the condenser coil, compressor, and fan, an outdoor unit releases heat absorbed from indoor air. But how do you choose an outdoor unit? It generally should match the brand and type of indoor air handler unit you have. In this buying guide, we’ll cover a few important considerations in selecting an outdoor air conditioner.

Types of Outdoor Air Conditioner Units

For a central air conditioning system, you’ll probably have one of two types of units. These are:

Choosing an Air Conditioner: Considerations

It’s unwise and impractical to choose just any air conditioner. For it to meet your needs and function properly, you need to think about:

Cost of Outdoor Air Conditioners

A central air conditioning system can cost from $3,000 to $7,000 to install. It’s usually not only the outdoor unit you need to install or replace. You need to factor in the cost of indoor air handlers, furnaces, ducts, and more as well as labor. A larger, more complex system can cost $20,000 or more.


Make sure you fully understand the terms of the manufacturer’s warranty and what is covered. Some warranties provide different coverage for the unit and certain parts. Others may only cover labor for certain types of work. Neglecting to maintain the AC or having a non-authorized individual service it can void the warranty, so it’s important to understand all the terms and conditions.

Not only did his team deliver promptly and on time, they were friendly and left with a professional install of my new A/C unit. I can’t mention the AWESOME price I got, but needless to say they can beat any deal, and will give you the fastest 1st-rate service available.

Yesterday I had NexGen install a new furnace and a/c system to replace my 30-year-old system. Their representative Jeff met with me the day before to go over the system that would work best for my home, and presented me with a price I couldn’t turn down. Incidentally, NexGen’s price was over $3,000 cheaper than all other competitors.

My call was promptly returned by Jeff and an appointment was scheduled for the next day. Jeff presented an offer that I couldn’t refuse! A crew was available that day and came, saw and conquered. I had A/C that evening at a very fair price. Highly recommend NexGen.
