AC Replacement & Installation

Air Conditioning Installation & Replacement in Scottsdale, AZ

The health, comfort and productivity of Scottsdale and Phoenix homeowners ride on the performance and efficiency of their air conditioner installations. If your aging cooling system can’t keep up with the Arizona heat or it’s nickel-and-diming you at every turn, it’s probably time for AC replacement.

Shopping for an AC system can be confusing and frustrating, and choosing a system size, efficiency rating, manufacturer and model can overwhelm even the most determined researcher. When you partner with Larson Air Conditioning, our team presents all your options and helps you select the HVAC unit that’s best for your comfort and budget needs. 

The Larson AC Installation Difference

Larson Air Conditioning hires experienced, NATE-certified technicians to complete your air conditioning installation, AC maintenance, or AC repair. Our commitment to homeowners begins with education, communication and understanding. Since our team members are technicians—not salespeople—you won’t get the hard sell. Instead, we take time to teach you about your system and help you decide if replacement is best, considering things like equipment age, efficiency and reliability. (Hint: If you’ve spent a fortune fixing your system or it is over 15 years old, a new air conditioner may be the wise choice.)

After recommending repair or replacement of your home AC unit, our highly trained technicians provide a flat-rate estimate that doesn’t leave you guessing. Arriving promptly and respecting your home, flooring and furnishings, we strive to create the ideal service experience. Most importantly, we promise your Phoenix or Scottsdale AC installation will be done right the first time. We don’t take shortcuts—and we never use substandard materials. Installing your air conditioner according to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, we guarantee our work and assure your new system operates at peak efficiency for years to come.

Installation Guidelines for Best AC Performance

Replacing an aging heating and cooling system with a new, high-efficiency model is a great start—but its performance is dependent on proper installation. According to ENERGY STAR®, improper installation can lower efficiency up to 30 percent while increasing utility bills and potentially shortening equipment life. Larson Air Conditioning takes pride in our work, so we guarantee best-quality AC installation. Quality guidelines include:

  • Proper equipment sizing. Selecting proper HVAC equipment size is essential to performance, comfort and energy savings. A system that is too large will cycle on and off frequently, and a system that is too small won’t keep up with the heat. Incorrect sizing puts undue stress on air conditioning components, shortening their lifespan.  
  • Duct sealing. Leaky ducts compromise comfort and drastically decrease cooling efficiency. Larson technicians evaluate your duct system, identify leaks and seal ducts with mastic tape or an aerosol sealant. We also install new ducts and replace aging ducts as needed, since a high-quality duct system is essential to home climate success.
  • Proper refrigerant charge. Incorrect refrigerant levels lower the efficiency of your air conditioning system by five to 20 percent and may even cause costly component failure. We ensure refrigerant levels are optimal for the system you choose.
  • Airflow optimization. High or low airflow leads to discomfort and escalating energy bills. Larson Air Conditioning installation includes thorough airflow testing and adjustment.

Everyone at the company was extremely polite and helpful. Sam came out to check out our ac system the very next morning... I called into the company. They send a picture ahead of time so you know who to expect. Sam was great, very friendly and spent a good amount of time on the roof, even showed me pictures to give me a heads up on a few other issues up there. Didn’t try to sell me anything and laid it all out straight, repairs vs replacement and let me think it over . Probably will replace since my unit is from 1996.read more

Well this will be one of the few negative reviews on Larson. I recently moved into a new home with a gas furnace and... wanted an inspection prior to using. I called Larson based on the reviews and they quoted $65 to come out for an inspection. No problem scheduling and they were prompt. The tech performed the inspection and right away noticed the flue pipe had separated at the unit, probably from the roof being recently replaced, which obviously needed repair. He struggled a bit and stated he’d rather replace the elbow connection because the remaining pipe was pushing up on the roof tiles. He verbally told me it would be ~$270 which I approved. There was one issue with a zip tie on a door interlock, which he cut off, and some insulation had fallen, which he reattached with adhesive.Total bill was $712.35. Inspection was $65.95, Insulation reattachment $60.65 (seems high for a can of glue and 5 min but whatever), and the ~1.5’ of flue pipe was $585.75! I figured I would wait to see the full invoice before questioning because the tech did not have an iPad or anything you could view it on. The next day after I received the invoice and called to question the charges, the customer service rep ends up arguing with me stating he “believes” this is a fair price because the issue could lead to a significant safety hazard with carbon monoxide. When I asked if they should charge more for that he says “not necessarily”. Seems like a gouging to me since these simple repairs were probably 1/5th of the cost to get a whole new furnace. Be sure to get a clear estimate with this place prior to approving work.Update: The company ended up honoring their original estimate and I appreciate them taking care of this.read more
