• Amana model ASX18 18 SEER Central Air Conditioner Price

    For many homeowners in warm climates, or those who want to go green in their heating and cooling, a high efficiency unit like the Amana ASX18 Central Air Conditioner is essential equipment.  A competitive price and 18 SEER are what make this a popular choice for many.  Suzanne in Providence, Rhode Island sent this Amana model ASX18 18 SEER central air conditioner price on her recent purchase.

    “14 months ago we moved into our current home that is now 5 years old.  It had no central air conditioner when we bought it – but we didn’t realize it until it got hot late last spring!  We transferred here in a rush for my work – in early winter too – and the house was so perfect in so many ways, and we were doing most of the search online and by phone, I completely overlooked that fact!  When we saw that the weather forecasted for 3-4 days out was for upper 80’s my husband suggested we try out the a/c to make sure it was functioning properly.  He flipped the switch and nothing happened.  He turned it on and off a few times and still nothing.  Then he went outside and walked completely around the house and came back in saying, ‘I don’t think this even house has a central air conditioner!’  He looked annoyed but I started cracking up and that got him laughing too.  What else can you do?  I dug out the listing for the house from when we bought it and it certainly does not list central air!

    Long story short, he got on the phone the next day and called a few contractors to come out and give him central air conditioner prices.  He said the Amana was efficient, less expensive than some of the ‘bigger’ brands, and that the contractor seemed totally on top of everything.  We had the unit installed and it was functioning perfectly the day before the weather got hot – actually hit 90.  The Amana ASX18 A/C works fantastic!  Here’s what we paid for it:

    4 ton Amana ASX18 central air conditioner, coil and lines: $2,889; Installation, $1,700;

    Total: $4,589

    My husband found this site researching prices for a complete system for a rental home he bought.  He said it was really helpful, so I thought I’d write and share our story and our price.”
