Advantages of Professional AC Installation in Rockwall, TX
From a little window unit to a major central air conditioning unit, there are some very compelling reasons why Rockwall AC installation should be handled by an experienced, qualified HVAC professional such as the service providers on our team.
Expert AC Installation Advice
When you start looking around at the possible choices for a new Rockwall air conditioning installation, you'll notice that there are a lot of options available and it can be very difficult to figure out what's going to work best for your residential property in terms of brand, style, output capability, power draw and so on. Our AC installation professionals will perform a thorough audit of your home to determine the most efficient, reliable, cost-effective options for your property. We'll then explain our recommendations clearly, give you an upfront cost estimate and answer any questions you may have so you can make an informed decision about what's best for your home.
Lower Energy Costs
Even if your old air conditioning system is still working, if it's been more than about a decade since it was installed you may be surprised by how much money you could save on your monthly energy bill with a modern, efficient system. Product manufacturers are constantly trying to outdo each other with new innovations that reduce energy consumption to lower the considerable cost of operating your air conditioner throughout the warmer months of the year. At the same time, your system naturally loses its ability to be energy efficient as it ages, due to normal wear and tear damage over time.
Those factors combined mean that a new Rockwall AC installation will use significantly less fuel than one that is a decade or more older. But there's also some options on the market that are generally going to conserve energy better than others and save you more on your utility bills. Check for the Energy Star seal of approval—it is an indication that a product meets certain energy efficiency standards as determined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Part of your air conditioner's job is air filtration. Over time, the filter can suffer damage and break down just like any other part of the system, or slowly lose its ability to provide adequate filtration. A new Rockwall AC installation will provide cleaner, more breathable air and reduce the amount of dust, pollen, dander and other allergens indoors so any allergy sufferers in your house can get some relief with a new, better functioning system.
Safe, Effective Air Conditioning Service
Air conditioning installation in Rockwall, TX (and everywhere else, for that matter) can be dangerous for those who don't know how to handle the systems safely and with all due caution. When you hire the HVAC professionals on our team, you can rest assured that we'll send an HVAC expert with the training and certification to work safely at all times, but also adhere to regulations, safety codes and current best practices in the industry.
Types of Air Conditioners Available for Rockwall AC Installation
Not sure which type of AC system will work best for your home? We're happy to offer some advice based on the size and configuration of your house and how well your current set-up is meeting the needs of your household. The options available for Rockwall AC installation include:
Split System & Package ACs: These are both examples of a standard central air conditioner that uses ductwork to circulate cool air throughout your house. The difference is that a package system combines heating and cooling in one unit, while the AC and heater are two separate units in a split system.
Ductless Mini-Splits: As the name suggests, this type of system doesn't need ducts. Instead, individual evaporator units in each room are linked up to an outdoor compressor. They are a good solution for older homes that don't have ductwork already installed, as having ductwork put in can be disruptive, expensive and in some cases, impossible.
Portable, Wall, & Window Units: These small, self-contained units need to vent to the outdoors, but they don't require an outdoor compressor unit. The catch is that they're only capable of cooling one or two rooms and won't be able to keep up with the needs of an entire house.
Evaporative Coolers: Also referred to as swamp coolers, this type of unit uses evaporation to remove heat, so it works best in hot, arid climates with low humidity. Because this part of Texas does get quite a bit of humidity blowing in from the Gulf, evaporative coolers are not going to be the most effective option for our climate.

Frequently Asked Questions About AC Installation in Rockwall, TX
Are you interested in learning more about Rockwall AC installation, or any of our other reliable HVAC services in Rockwall, TX? Just give us a call to speak with our friendly customer service staff and get all your questions answered quickly and easily, or check out our replies to a few common air conditioning installation questions below.
What Is a SEER Rating for Air Conditioning Installation?
SEER is an acronym that stands for seasonal energy efficiency ratio. It's a rating that measures the performance of a cooling system. The higher the SEER number, the more efficient the unit is. High-efficiency modern air conditioners save you money by using less fuel to provide cooling service for your house and are also kinder to the environment because they don't needlessly strain energy resources.
Did you know that the U.S. Department of Energy sets minimum efficiency requirements for air conditioning installation? As of 2015, air conditioners installed in the Southeastern region of the United States, which includes Texas, must have a SEER rating of 14 or higher—and as of 2023, the rating requirement for this region is increasing to a minimum of 15 SEER. HVAC service professionals are not permitted to install an AC unit that doesn't meet the minimum SEER requirement, so it's important to opt for a system that meets the current minimum standards. These energy conservation measures have a huge impact on energy usage throughout the Southeastern region of the United States, reducing both your individual energy costs and the environmental toll of high energy usage.
What Size Unit Do I Need for AC Installation in Rockwall, TX?
This is a big question, because it's really important to get the correct size for your Rockwall AC installation. Most people assume that if a big AC is good, a bigger one will be even better—but that's not always true when it comes to HVAC. A system that is too big for the house will reach the temperature on your thermostat too rapidly. That may sound like a positive, but it causes the system to short cycle by turning on and off frequently. Short cycling increases wear and tear on your system so you'll end up needing repair or replacement earlier than you would have otherwise.
A system that's too small for your house is no picnic either. It won't be able to get your house down to the temperature you have set on your thermostat, so it'll have to operate constantly and drain a huge amount of fuel. That'll be reflected on your utility bill, so buying an undersized unit to save money really doesn't work out so well in the long run. What's worse is, your house will still be hot, humid and uncomfortable even though you have to pay all that money for energy costs. Determining the right size and configuration for your system is complicated, so we can't really generalize based on square footage alone. Once our service professionals have had the opportunity to assess your property, they can offer a recommendation on the best size for your house.
Where Should the AC Units Be Located in My House?
This is another factor that warrants some careful consideration, and our service professionals can offer advice on the best Rockwall AC installation placement for both indoor and outdoor units, depending on the configuration of your property and the needs of your household. If you're getting a central air system put in, you'll need space outside for the compressor unit, and if it's a ductless mini-split, you'll need suitable locations in each room for the evaporator units.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when searching for the perfect space outdoors:
Unit needs to be a minimum of 12 inches away from any other object
Keep it away from hot zones and high-traffic areas
Needs to be placed on a level, elevated condenser pad
For indoor, wall-mounted units, here are some of the requirements:
Seven feet above your floor, with six inches of clearance on top and each side
Three feet away from electronics, Wi-Fi modems and coaxial cables
Wall needs to be strong enough to support unit, which should ideally be fastened to a wall stud
Away from direct sunlight and other direct heat sources
Not obstructed by items such as large furniture
