AC Installation service by Affirmative Air Conditioning

Air Conditioning Installation in Phoenix & Scottsdale, AZ

A state-of-the-art air conditioning system won't cool properly unless it is installed properly. That is one reason the price of installation can vary widely from contractor to contractor. Everyone values their skills at different levels, but this much is certain: If you’ve never had central air conditioning in your home, you may need new ductwork with your new unit, which can raise the price by thousands of dollars.

The size of the AC unit also will impact the installation. For the unit to function efficiently, it must be sized appropriately: basically 1 ton of air conditioning capacity for every 600 square feet of conditioned floor area (600 sf/ton). Having a unit that is too large or too small to fit your floor space will lead to problems.

When you need an A/C unit installed at your home or office in the Scottsdale and Phoenix, Arizona area, be sure to let the seasoned pros from Affirmative Air Conditioning handle the task. Our NATE-certified technicians have been creating satisfied customers throughout the Valley of the Sun for more than two decades.

Size and Capacity Impact Cooling Need

Many considerations factor into the ideal size of your new HVAC system, as well as the challenge of its installation. As a rule of thumb, an air conditioner needs 20 Btu for each square foot of living space. Other issues may create a need to raise or lower that figure, but you can calculate the square footage of each room by multiplying the length of the room by the width.

Unique circumstances that could skew your calculations include the height of your ceiling and doorways, the size and shading options of windows, and the number of occupants in your home.

A fuller home will generally be warmer, thanks to natural body heat. A larger house with minimal residents, on the other hand, might need a little boost to keep things cool. Because home appliances and electrical equipment create heat, it's worth noting that a home filled with heavy appliances and strong lights that are left on most of the time tend may need a stronger cooling system to compensate for that extra heat.
