Cost to Install an Air Conditioning

Quote and Estimate

Let’s look at some of the factors that affect installation prices.

Two ways your contractor will affect the price of your AC installation include:

  1. Upfront labor costs
  2. Long-term costs from incorrect sizing and installation

The bottom line? Higher quality contractors often come with higher upfront installation prices but save you money in long-term costs. GALVEZ AIR CONDITIONING & REFRIGERATION INC. is License Contractor.

1. Upfront labor costs

When you hire a contractor, you typically pay an upfront cost that covers:

  • A Manual J calculation (to correctly size your AC)
  • Installation of the new AC
  • Disposal of the old AC


  • Contractor with License and Insured in the State of Arizona since 2008.
  • We had been in business for 10+ years.
  • GALVEZ AIR CONDITIONING & REFRIGERATION INC has its own office, a professional technical team and elements of the latest technology.
  • We offer written estimates and formal proposal.
  • We can provide referrals from past and current customers.

2. Long-term costs

Hiring a contractor just for their low prices can quickly backfire. If they’re not thorough and knowledgeable, they can cost you thousands in repairs and monthly cooling costs, GALVEZ AIR CONDITIONING & REFRIGERATION INC offers you the security you need in all the air conditioning services you provide.

For example, if a contractor installs an AC unit that is too large for your home, your AC will constantly short-cycle (run for short bursts then turn off). And that can shorten the lifespan of your unit, cause expensive damage, and leave your indoor humidity levels sky-high.

Higher quality, longer warranties usually make the overall installation price higher.


  • Manufacturer’s warranty (covers equipment and parts)
  • Contractor’s warranty (covers labor costs for repairs)

Manufacturer’s warranties are always built into the price of the unit and can last anywhere from 2 to 10 years. However, contractors’ guarantees vary from the minute they leave your home to 10 years.

Three factors that affect the price of your AC unit include:

  • Size
  • SEER rating
  • Brand


For the most part, the larger the AC size, the more expensive it will be.

ACs are sized in “tons” or tonnage. But tonnage has nothing to do with the weight of the unit, it measures how much heat the system can remove from your home in one hour. For the most part, residential air conditioners can be sized anywhere from 1 to 5 tons. The higher the tonnage, the more heat the air conditioner can remove from your home in one hour.

Remember, the contractor you hire should perform a Manual J calculation in order to determine the size AC you need. Beware contractors who use rule-of-thumbs to size your AC, such as only taking into account the square footage of your home. This can lead to incorrect sizing. And like we mentioned earlier, getting an AC that is too big (or too small) is expensive in the long run.


The higher an AC unit’s SEER, the more expensive the unit will be.

So what exactly is “SEER”?

SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) measures how efficient your AC is. Modern air conditioners available on the market today range from SEER 13 to 25. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the unit, meaning the more money you save in monthly cooling costs.

But don’t feel pressured to get a unit with the highest SEER possible. Most units with a SEER of 14 to 16 are highly efficient without a ridiculously high price tag.


As with most products, bigger, well-known AC brands usually come with a higher price tag. Some of the bigger AC brands include:

  • Trane
  • Goodman
  • Lennox
  • York
  • Carrier
  • Amana

So, do you have to stick with big brands? Well no. There are small differences between HVAC manufacturers, One might have a quieter compressor while another might advertise units with a higher SEER rating. But, at the end of the day, the person who installs your AC unit has a lot more to do with your overall satisfaction than the brand you choose. So our suggestion for those on a budget is to go with a lower-priced brand but don’t skimp on contractor prices.

Many residences have air duct issues that need fixing before GALVEZ AIR CONDITIONING & REFRIGERATION INC install the AC system, but we can help you too.

Why you need a new AC?​

Check this signs:

Galvez Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Inc. recommend from our experience, the average Air Conditioning in Arizona State about 10-14 years.  Annual professional maintenance can improve the life time of your air conditioning.

If your AC is starting to need repairs on an almost annual basis, it’s near the end of its lifespan.

Older units are inefficient and increase your energy bills.

Customer Reviews

  • positive review  Galvez AC recently installed a new Ac and furnace for me. He beat out 2 other estimates, one by 4000 dollars and the other one by over $ 1000. They arrived on time and went right to work, no breaks and done in under 6 hours. Honest and very knowledgable and friendly. I cannot recommend them enough. We are highly satisfied.

  • positive review  Called and Jose was at my house within a few hours. Doesn’t charge a trip fee , you only pay for his time and parts which aren’t doubled in price. Couldn’t be happier. Nice to find a air and heat Company that’s trust worthy and so reasonably priced. He also has no problem working week ends without charging extra. Very satisfied. 😀
