Air Conditioning Installation

Air Conditioner, Heat Pump, AC, HVACInstalling a new air conditioning unit in your home can greatly reduce energy costs. New air conditioning models are designed for better energy efficiency.

In the Phoenix Metropolitan area, we require high-quality air conditioners to keep our homes comfortable during the extremely hot summer months. In order to keep our homes cooled, there are many different types of air conditioning systems designed to effectively work.

Roof Top Air Conditioning Units

Many homes in the Phoenix Metropolitan area have roof top air conditioning units. They are often called “packaged heat pumps” or “gas packs”. At Arctic Fox Air Conditioning and Heating, great care is taken with the installation of new roof top air conditioning unit. Our technicians ensure that a new unit will be a good fit for the house. It needs to have the correct rating in order to effectively cool the home.

During the installation, Arctic Fox Air Conditioning technicians follow a step-by-step procedure to provide a quality installation. Here are a few of the important steps that we take during the installation of roof top air conditioning units:
  • Construction of Custom Built Sheet Metal Air Duct Elbows to Fit Rooftop and Unit Exactly
  • Changing of the High Voltage Disconnect and Wiring on Roof
  • Installation on New Thermostat Wiring
  • Installation of Condensate Drain to Home's Drain
  • Installation of a New Digital Thermostat
  • Inspection of Duct Work in Attic Looking for Leaks

Split System Air Conditioning Units

Here are some of those procedures:
