"We found ourselves without air conditioning late on a Saturday evening, on a holiday weekend and gave CALFO a call. In sooner than anticipated time, they responded and came out to service our unit. Professional, timely, and cost reasonable- we were impressed! Not to mention, we had a wonderful tech named Jason and he was very knowledgeable and helpful on all fronts!"Shana G.Homeowner in Pittsburgh, PA

Getting the job right the first time saves everyone time, money, and headaches—which is exactly why Calfo Heating & AC takes every step to get your AC replacement correct from the get-go! Each and every one of our AC technicians receive five years of specialized training in heating and cooling repair, maintenance, and installation so that we can diagnose your home cooling issues right away and provide you with a straightforward solution.
If you are looking for the AC contractor that will roll out the red carpet for you, you’ve arrived at the right place. At Calfo, we bring an actual red carpet to avoid tracking dirt or contaminants into your home, leaving behind only an expertly installed, brand-new air conditioner, all while treating you like Hollywood royalty.
Your AC installation in 3 simple steps:
1) Schedule an appointment.
We know air conditioners tend to break down at the most inconvenient times, which is why our team is available 24/7.
You can schedule an appointment online or call us at (412) 561-9821.
2) Get an in-home consultation.
Once your appointment is scheduled, we'll send one of our comfort advisors to your home so that we can help you determine if AC replacement or AC repair will be best. If you are in need of a new air conditioner, we will pair you with the right equipment to meet your cooling needs and your budget. Before we begin any work, we'll provide you with upfront pricing, so there are no surprise costs later on.
3) Have your AC installed.
Once you're comfortable with the plan and the price we've laid out for you, our AC installation crew will get to work. Typically, our team can get your AC system installed that same day or the next day at the latest.
Did we mention that every new AC comes with a free touchscreen thermostat?

- Average: $7,000
- High: $9,000
Want an accurate price?
- The required unit size (tons): The bigger your home, the larger your cooling load, and the more expensive it is. The size of AC you'll need for your home depends on a variety of factors that a skilled tech will need to assess before installing your new system.
- Energy efficiency rating (SEER): Want lower energy bills? Get an AC with a higher SEER rating. The higher the efficiency of your AC (higher the SEER rating), the more expensive your AC system will be upfront, but the more long-term savings you could see on your energy bills.
- Extra comfort features: Home too humid? Want more even cooling throughout your home? Ask us about variable-speed fans and two-stage compressors. However, keep in mind that any upgrades you make will increase the initial cost of your AC system.
- Ductwork repair: Many older Pittsburgh-area homes have damaged ductwork that will need to be fixed before installing a new unit. If your ductwork needs to be fixed or replaced, it will increase the cost of your AC installation.

It's time to replace your AC if it...
- Is 15+ years old. According to ENERGY STAR, 15 years is the average lifespan of a central AC. So, if your system is nearing this age, it's probably time to get an estimate on a replacement. Note: You don't want to wait for your system to break down before replacing it, so it's better to be proactive than to wait until you absolutely need a new AC.
- Can't keep up with the hotter days. If you notice that your AC is struggling to keep your home cool, this is usually a sign that it needs to be replaced.
- Needs the compressor replaced. Replacing a compressor is expensive—especially if it's not covered by your warranty. In that case, you're better off shopping for a new AC.
- Is costing you too much on your cooling bills. If your energy bills have increased, this is typically an indicator that your AC is no longer running efficiently and will need to be replaced. Our recommendation is to replace it sooner rather than later, so you don't continue to pay higher energy costs due to a dying system.

"Excellent service! Called today, Damien came and gave me a quote that was similar to other quotes I had received. But the difference was they were able to install tomorrow!! One HVAC couldn’t even give me an appointment for the estimate until next Thursday! Thank you! I will be cool this weekend!"Francie L.Homeowner in Pittsburgh, PA
"We had our A/C installed by Jake and Logan. Both did a fantastic job and showed us how to operate both the furnace and A/C. Process from purchasing to install was pretty painless... So far that's two houses they hooked us up with and two times we've been pleased. We've yet to have a need to call them back out for maintenance or resolve an issue but if that's anything like the initial install they're in and out efficiently. Cheers!"Mark H.Homeowner in Pittsburgh, PA
