Air Conditioning Installation
No matter what your cooling needs may be, Rostron Premium Home Services has you covered with efficient and affordable air conditioning installation tailored to your home that will keep you comfortable and happy.
If your current air conditioning system is underperforming and not keeping you comfortable throughout the summer, you may be ready to install a new air conditioning system. We will work with you to determine the type and size of unit that best fits your needs, taking into account the existing systems in your home, layout, airflow, efficiency and other factors.
Split-system Air Conditioning Units
Split-system air conditioning units operate with two cabinet components, one inside and one outside the home. The outdoor cabinet contains the condenser and compressor, while the indoor cabinet contains the evaporator. Split-system air conditioners are more economical for homes that already have furnaces installed.
Ductless Mini-Split Units (Heat Pumps)
Ductless mini-splits units are one of the most efficient ways to cool and heat your home. Employing the same technology that keeps your refrigerator cool, ductless mini-splits extract heat out of air and move it to where it is needed — whether that is outside during the summer or inside during the winter. At Tom Rostron we install industry-leading Mitsubishi mini splits that allow for customized comfort zones to keep your living areas at your desired temperature year round.
Packaged Central Air Conditioning Units
For our commercial customers, we offer energy efficient packaged central air conditioning units. Packaged central air conditioners operate with a single outdoor cabinet, containing the condenser, compressor and evaporator all in a single component. These cabinets are often housed on the roof or on a concrete slab next to the building. The supply and return ducts flow between the building and the AC unit. Packaged air conditioning units often combine cooling and heating capabilities, which means you do not need a separate furnace in your building for heat.
A new air conditioning unit is only as good as its installer
You can trust Tom Rostron Company to provide you with the correct specifications, including size and refrigerant levels, to keep your cooling system running efficiently. Our satisfaction guarantee offers you peace of mind that your unit will be installed correctly the first time, perfectly conditioned to meet your needs as a homeowner and your expectations as a customer.

Air conditioning is a modern necessity that makes our lives more comfortable and convenient. It provides us with cool air during the hot summer months and helps us maintain a comfortable temperature in our homes and offices throughout the year. If you are planning to install an air conditioning unit in your home or office, you need to consider various factors, such as the type of unit, its size, and its location. This article provides a comprehensive guide to air conditioning installation, covering everything from the different types of air units to the installation costs and other important factors.
Types of Air Conditioning Units
Before you can start the installation process, you need to choose the right type of air conditioning unit for your home or office. There are several types of air units available on the market, including central air conditioning, ductless mini-split systems, window air conditioners, and portable air conditioners.
Central Air Conditioning: A central air conditioning unit is a popular option for larger homes and buildings. It uses a system of ducts and vents to distribute cool air throughout the entire building. A central air unit costs more to install than other types of air conditioning units, but it is more efficient and provides better air quality.
Ductless Mini-Split Systems: A ductless mini-split system is an ideal option for homes that do not have a central air system. This type of system does not require ductwork and can be installed in individual rooms or zones. A ductless mini-split system is more expensive than a window air conditioner, but it is more efficient and provides better air quality.
Window Air Conditioners: A window air conditioner is a popular option for small rooms and apartments. It is easy to install and relatively inexpensive. However, it is not as efficient as a central air system, and it can be noisy and block the view from the window.
Portable Air Conditioners: A portable air conditioner is a good option for those who need to cool a small space or move the unit from room to room. It is easy to install and does not require permanent installation. However, it is not as efficient as other types of air units, and it can be noisy and take up space.
Air Unit Size and SEER Rating
When choosing an air conditioning unit, you need to consider the size and SEER rating. The size of the unit depends on the size of your home or office, the number of rooms, and the location. A unit that is too small will not cool the space efficiently, while a unit that is too large will consume more energy and increase your utility bills.
The SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating is a measure of the unit’s energy efficiency. A higher SEER rating means that the unit is more efficient and will consume less energy. The minimum SEER rating for new air conditioners is 13, but units with a SEER rating of 16 or higher are more efficient and can help you save money on your energy bills.
Air Conditioning Installation Cost and Unit Costs
The installation cost and unit costs vary depending on the type of air conditioning unit you choose, the size of the unit, and the location. The installation cost for a central air unit can range from $2,500 to $7,500, while the installation cost for a window air conditioner can range from $150 to $300.
The unit cost for a central air unit can range from $1,500 to $5,000, while the unit cost for a window air conditioner can range from $100 to $500. The cost of a ductless mini-split system can range from $1,500 to $3,000 per unit, while the cost of a portable air conditioner can range from $200 to $1,000.
Location and Installation
The location of your air conditioning unit is an important factor to consider when installing the unit. The unit should be placed in a location that provides adequate air circulation and is not obstructed by furniture or other objects. The location should also be easily accessible for maintenance and repairs.
The installation process for an air conditioning unit varies depending on the type of unit you choose. For a central air unit, the installation process involves installing ductwork, electrical wiring, and other components. The process can take several days and requires professional installation.
For a window air conditioner or a portable air conditioner, the installation process is much simpler. You need to place the unit in the window or in the desired location and plug it into an electrical outlet.
For a ductless mini-split system, the installation process involves mounting the indoor unit on the wall and connecting it to the outdoor unit. The process can take several hours and requires professional installation.
Air Quality and Ductwork
Air quality is an important factor to consider when installing an air conditioning unit. A central air unit can improve air quality by filtering out dust, pollen, and other allergens. However, if your ductwork is dirty or damaged, it can reduce air quality and cause health problems.
Ductwork is an important component of a central air unit. It distributes cool air throughout the building and ensures that the air is evenly distributed. If your ductwork is dirty or damaged, it can reduce the efficiency of your air conditioning unit and increase your energy bills.
If you are installing a central air unit, it is important to have your ductwork inspected and cleaned before installation. This will ensure that your air conditioning unit works efficiently and provides clean, cool air.
Insurance and Contractor Reviews
Before installing an air conditioning unit, it is important to check your insurance policy to see if it covers the installation process. Some insurance policies cover the cost of installation and repairs, while others do not. If your insurance policy does not cover the installation process, you may need to pay for it out of pocket.
It is also important to research contractors and read reviews before hiring one to install your air conditioning unit. A reputable contractor will provide you with a detailed estimate and ensure that the installation process is completed on time and within budget.
Installing an air conditioning unit can improve your comfort and quality of life, but it requires careful consideration and planning. You need to choose the right type of unit for your home or office, consider the unit size and SEER rating, and calculate the installation and unit costs. You also need to choose a location that provides adequate air circulation and is easily accessible for maintenance and repairs.
The installation process varies depending on the type of unit you choose, and you need to ensure that your ductwork is clean and in good condition to improve air quality and reduce energy bills. By following these tips and hiring a reputable contractor, you can enjoy the benefits of a cool, comfortable home or office all year round.
