How to Choose the Best AC Installer

Service Personnel with a CustomerIt’s that time of year again—summer is officially here and temperatures aren’t letting us ignore that. As such, we hope you already have a well-maintained and highly efficient air conditioner in place. If you don’t, however, and if it’s time for you to get a new one, then we urge you to contact our professional Los Lunas HVAC contractors.

But why is it so important to only trust a pro?

Well, first off, you want to ensure that you’re getting the right type and right size air conditioner for your home. Did you know that too large of a system can be just as detrimental as too small of one? Too small of an air conditioner obviously cannot adequately cool the space in which it is installed, but too big of one will go through a process called short-cycling. This means it will turn off and on in short, rapid cycles and cause the AC system to work harder than it should have to in order to do its job—inefficiently so.

Okay, so we told you why it’s important to hire a pro—but how do you find the best pro? Here are some qualities to look for:


Sure, you may think it’s just fine to call in any handyman off the street so long as they have a little bit of experience with electric and mechanical devices. However, this may only end in a headache for you. Complex HVAC equipment is difficult to install and replace for even the most skilled of “handypeople,” and you’ll likely find yourself calling in a pro anyway to fix their messy work.

Additionally, you have your safety to think about. While this doesn’t apply so much for air conditioners, when the time comes for you to get a new heater, only a trained professional has the licensing and training to handle any gas lines that may be involved.

Focus on Energy Savings

The air conditioning system you choose for your household will play a huge role in your family’s comfort, as well as their health. But you also don’t want to pay an arm and a leg each month for that comfort. When you hire an AC installer, you want to choose one that knows the ins and outs of each type of system.

This way, they can help you choose one that specifically matches your individual needs (this isn’t a one-size-fits-all situation) and therefore operates as efficiently as possible, to help you save a bit of money off your energy costs from month to month.

Comprehensive Products

As we stated above, choosing an air conditioner is not a “one-size-fits-all” scenario. While a central air conditioner may be great for one home, a ductless system might be the right choice for another. And when you choose an AC installer, you want one that works will all of these systems, so you have options to choose from and don’t feel stuck choosing a system that may be out of your budget, or less than “perfect” for your needs.
