Don’t let your A/C unit get damaged or in the way during roofing work. Let us move it.

We all know that the Arizona heat can be challenging to handle. For this very reason, it’s pretty common to spot air conditioning units perched atop roofs. Roof-mounted AC systems allow for maximized airflow and ventilation, which are crucial for optimal efficiency and for avoiding overheating during the hot summer months.

However, AC units on the roof are obviously less ideal when you’re having your roof repaired or replaced. Rooftop air conditioners can get in the way, making roof work complex or even impossible. Worse yet, your AC can be damaged during roofing, which would obviously be a homeowner’s nightmare come true. That’s where we come in.

Protect Your A/C Investment During Roof Work

During roof repairs or replacement, we know that the safety of your air conditioning unit is paramount. Because air conditioning is what we do at Desert Moon Heating & Cooling, we’re experts when it comes to handling temporary A/C unit removal with precision and care. Depending on what is needed in your specific case, there are a few different approaches and specialized equipment that we’ll use to safely remove your air conditioner. Once the roof work is complete, we’ll reinstall your A/C unit and make sure everything is properly reconnected and functioning, just like it was before.

A/C Roof Removal FAQ’s

Here are some frequently asked questions about temporary removal of roof-mounted air conditioning units.

Before we answer, consider:

  • A new HVAC unit can cost up to $10k or more.
  • An HVAC unit can weigh several hundred pounds.
  • Tucson is hot in the summer and cold in the winter, which means we need our A/C units.

For these reasons and more, there is simply no better or safer approach to moving a roof-top air conditioning unit than using a good ol’ fashioned crane. While there are A/C lifts and cranes made for ladders, they sacrifice safety, stability, maneuverability and control in the name of efficiency and saving a few bucks. Cranes offer increased weight capacity and precision, reducing the risk of accidents and damage to your A/C unit, roof, or surrounding property.

So to answer the question, we use a crane. When it comes to your air conditioning unit, there’s simply too much at stake to do otherwise.

No, you will not be able to use your air conditioner until the roofing work is complete and your air conditioner is reinstalled.
Your A/C unit is stored on-site at your location, typically in a garage or a storage shed.

Please note that we do not move units off-site.
