Are we still obligated to put in A/C to our rental if the tenant broke the lease?

We agreed to put in A/C up to $1000-$1500 in a rental but before we could do so, the tenant moved in his daughter, her dog and 2 cats.

If the tenant violated the lease in some material way--such as by moving in more people than are allowed under the lease to live there; or having pets when she's not allowed--you could provide her a notice to cease such violation and evict her if she continues to violate the lease after such notice. (If she does fix the problem, you can't evict her.) However, if you do not or cannot evict her, you have to honor your own obligations.
