How it works

1.Schedule a free estimate.

Call us or request a free AC installation estimate online. We'll work with you to schedule your free estimate on a day and time that works best for you.

2.Get options based on your budget.

A Design Specialist will inspect your home and chat with you about your cooling needs. Then, they'll present various AC options that match your budget.

Because most of our Design Specialists started as installers or service techs, they're extremely knowledgable—and honest. They won't try to sell you something that won't benefit you in the long run.

3.Go about your day while we install your AC.

On the day of your AC installation, our installation crew typically arrives around 8:30–9:30am and usually need at least 4 hours to complete the job.

Need to leave before we arrive? No problem. Just provide a Burgeson's representative with instructions on how to enter your home and we'll get started.

Our installers always wear shoe covers, place drop cloths and vacuum when they're done. Plus, every Burgeson's installation is carefully inspected by one of our Installation Supervisors to ensure the highest-quality work.

Signs you need to replace your AC 

  • Your AC is over 10+ years.

The typical lifespan of an air conditioner is 10 to 15 years. That said, if your AC is over ten years old and is in need of frequent repairs, you may save more money in the long run by replacing it.

  • Your home is never quite comfortable enough.

As air conditioners age, their cooling abilities decrease. Over time, you may notice that your AC runs longer and yet never seems to reach your desired temperature. If this is the case, it's time to replace the unit.

  • The cost to repair the AC is too high.

How high is too high? Well, the general rule of thumb is that if the cost of the repair multiplied by the age of the unit is more expensive than getting a new AC, we recommend you replace the unit. 

  • Your energy bills are getting higher and higher.

ACs get less efficient as they age. If you notice that your monthly energy bills are increasing (and you're not increasing your AC run times), consider investing in a new, energy-efficient model.

Cost of an AC installation:

Wondering how much it costs to replace an air conditioner in Redlands and the Inland Empire area? Prices in our area typically fall within these ranges:

  • $5,000 to $10,000+   to replace an existing AC unit only
  • $13,000 to $25,000+   for complete system replacement (AC + furnace + coil + duct)


Factors that will affect the cost of your AC installation include:

  • The tonnage or "size" of the unit. 

It's not simply the physical size of an AC unit that determines its ability to cool your home. Bigger is not always better, smaller is not always cheaper! The required tonnage of your AC unit is based on the square footage of your home and determined by a "load calculation" that will be done by our Design Specialist.

  • Efficiency. 

All air conditioners come with a specific efficiency "rating" called SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). Higher SEER rated units cost more upfront but save you more on monthly energy bills.

  • Features. 

Not all AC units are built equally. Some have more advanced comfort features, like variable speeds or sound-muffling devices. Simply put, the more comfort features, the higher the cost of the unit.

  • The condition of outdoor components.

The cost of an AC installation depends on more than the price of the unit alone. Other factors to consider are the condition of your existing refrigeration line sets, electrical lines and accessibility of the area where the work is to be done. Usually, the line sets require replacement or relocation and quite often the placement of your new unit needs to be adjusted along with all of its necessary hook-ups.

  • The condition of your ventilation system. 
The best AC unit available will not cool your home without a healthy ventilation system. Redesigning, repairing or replacing your home's ductwork and air cents (registers/grilles) can be costly, but is crucial to your comfort.
  • Whether your furnace also needs to be replaced. 
If your AC needs to be replaced it's very likely that your furnace will need to be replaced as well. Your AC and furnace share many of the same systems. Upgrading one without the other can cause expensive system issues.

Of course, the only way to get accurate pricing for your specific installation is to have us inspect your home and chat with you about your cooling needs.

If you're in the market for a new AC, heads up...you'll see a lot of unfamiliar terms as you shop around. We're here to help you make sense of some of the HVAC jargon.

Below are some AC terms and phrases you should know:

  • Tonnage/BTU. 
Both of these terms refer to an AC unit's size. They're used interchangeably to measure how much heat an AC unit can remove from your home in one hour. For example, a 1-ton AC unit ("ton" is short for tonnage) can remove 12,000 BTUs (British Thermal Unit). Fun fact: One BTU roughly equals the same amount of heat that's produced by burning through one match.
  • Variable-speed. 
If an AC unit has variable-speed technology, it means that the unit continuously adjusts its speed according to whatever level of cooling is needed at the time. These units provide higher comfort and more energy savings than units that can only operate on 2 speeds ("two-stage" technology) or one speed ("single-speed" technology).
  • SEER. 
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and measures an AC unit's efficiency. Simply put, it tells you how much cooling the unit provides per watt of electricity it consumes. The higher the SEER, the more you save on energy bills. Because they're more efficient, higher-SEER units also cost more upfront.


I am enjoying my cool house! Thanks, Josh and Troy, for a job well done! My air conditioner went out on 8/14. I called your office that afternoon. Andy took the call and came out within an hour. He gave me the price, I agreed and the team was out the next morning. Talk about great service!!! Thank you!
