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  Recently we discovered that our ac and heat was not working in our upstairs. Galvez Air was recommended to us on Nextdoor so I emailed him. He was very quick to respond and was at my house within hours. He was very honest with the repairs and had my unit up and running in no time. Jose was extremely friendly and even helped me set up my new smart thermostat after he was done. Galvez will now be my go to for any of my HVAC issues

  • positive review  Amazing service! Our AC unit started blowing hot air at 8pm and by 8:30 they were already taking a look at our unit. He was able to fix it in less than an hour. Very glad to have found him!

  • positive review  What a great guy/service, came out, had to redo/repair the mess I made putting in a new thermostat, replaced the parts that blew, generally checked the whole unit, and it cost much less than I had anticipated – I will always call Galvez A/C for any future A/C needs

  • positive review  IF YOU EVER HAVE A/C ISSUES – THIS COMPANY (CEO JOSE GALVEZ) SAVED US – LITERALLY! I have lived in Arizona my entire life and I am 37. I have had several different homes from the West Valley to the East Valley and graduated from ASU in 2009. I have NEVER seen a Company care more about their customers than this Company. Our air conditioning went out 3 weeks ago and I am a full time attorney with two children who are in the midst of home schooling now with the pandemic as Gilbert is providing online courses for my children. I had been going outside to flip the breaker on and off as well as turning off my unit just to get by until the a/c repair company came out. I had FOUR companies come out to fix my unit and most told me that it would be 3 to 4 weeks more because of COVID-19 and other issues. My compressor, in the meantime, completely quit and my house inside raised to 95 degrees in temperature. I lost 3 animals and have heart issues. I was worried about my family and worried about how I would be able to provide for them if something happened as heat worsens my condition. My kind neighbors ended up giving me a place to stay while we waited for everything to get fixed. The 4th company to come out told me they would treat me right and promised not to price gouge. They ended up telling me it would be $11,200 to replace my a/c. They didn’t even climb into my attic to really find the problem. To make matters worse, I found out that they were only paying $3,500 for the unit they were charging me $11,200 to fix. I was at a loss and called a close friend asking for help. I have been struggling to make ends meet as several of my corporate clients have gone under with so much going on in the world and now I was trying to work from my neighbor’s home. I was worried about this personal emergency causing me to be unable to work for the clients that I have left. My fried recommended Jose to me and I was leary because all of the prior 4 companies had been so dishonest and seemed to not care about my predicament. Jose came out immediately and told me it would cost half the price of what every other company quoted me. He was honest, fair, and showed me why my A/C had broken down. He climbed into the attic and took time to actually find out what had happened. My A/C had broken twice last summer and this was the second time this summer. We moved into this home last year and I was starting to believe we would never find someone to fix the real problem. Arizona heat is brutal and a broken A/C disrupts Arizonan’s entire lives, especially with children in the home and pets. It is a health emergency. Jose treated it that way and told me everything was going to be okay. I had broken down crying because it was all so much and he was so professional despite how embarrassed I was to be a corporate attorney who couldn’t even handle everything at the point he came out because so much had been disrupted in our lives without having shelter we could live in any longer. Jose ordered the new unit the same day he came to my home to find out what was going on. He came with his employees next morning at 5:30 am to install and cleaned everything before he left. He saved me and my family in a way I could never repay. I will NEVER use another A/C company and will be referring EVERYONE to him. We are back in our home and finally back to being able to live our lives and work. Jose, you have saved an attorney and her family. Thank you for being honest, kind, professional, and so hard working. Thank you for giving us our home back.

  • positive review  I needed someone to come out and fix my failing AC because of a previous installers poor workmanship. I saw Galvez had great reviews in my area. I ended up calling late in the day, but he was still able to come out. Mr. Galvez and his assistant showed up promptly, looking neat and professional. They redid my previous installers work quickly and accurately. Mr. Galvez was super nice, and super knowledgeable. He completed the work correctly at a fraction of what the previous installer wanted to fix their own mistake. I will definitely be using Galvez again for my future checkups and maintenance.

  • 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. 😀
