Cost to Replace Your Central AC in Phoenix
Factors That Affect Your Central AC Replacement Cost
- System size/capacity: Generally speaking, the larger your AC system, the more expensive your AC install will be. One of our experienced techs will come to your home and perform a “Manual J Load Calculation” to determine what size AC is best for your home and your specific cooling needs.
- SEER (energy efficiency) rating: The efficiency level of a central AC system is determined by the SEER rating. A higher SEER means the system will be more efficient but will also cost more. However, the more efficient your system is, the more potential savings you'll see in the long run after your AC install.

- Add-ons: When installing your central AC system, a technician may suggest some add-ons that will increase the efficiency of your system, like
- Ductwork sealing
- Programmable or smart thermostat
- Extended warranty options
- Contractor you hire: When hiring an HVAC contractor to install your AC, you want to invest in a quality contractor. You should look for a company or contractor that
- Has positive reviews
- Is an accredited company with the Better Business Bureau (BBB)
- Does their due diligence before the install is performed (comes to your home to conduct a Manual J Load Calculation)
