The key to maximum home comfort during the hot summer season lies with proper AC installation. If you already have an AC system, proper maintenance is vital. It will ensure that you enjoy cool summer days and nights when outdoor temperatures are baking hot. Always hire a licensed HVAC contractor with a lot of experience in the industry.
While you may be tempted to take a do-it-yourself approach to A/C installation, this is never a good idea as the costly cooling equipment may break down regularly and have a shorter lifespan. Furthermore, you may not be able to enjoy optimal home comfort.
This means that you need to hire a reputable professional who has handled hundreds of AC installation jobs in the past. During the installation process, there are a number of things you should expect. Read on to learn more.
Choose a suitable air conditioner installation company. The contractor that you choose is just as important as the make and model of the AC system that you invest in. The contractors need to be licensed technicians who are also NATE-certified. Once you have hired them, they will be dispatched to your home.
They will pay you a visit to assess two things. The first is the design of your home to determine the most suitable place to install the:
- indoor cabinet
- air ducts
For a ductless system, they will find that the best place to install the condenser unit and air handlers is in your home. They will also measure the total floor space in your home and perform a Manuel J HVAC load calculation. This will identify the most suitable air conditioner size for your cooling needs. During the initial visit, the technicians will also provide a more accurate quote for the entire job. If you accept the quote, the cooling system installation process will commence.
If you have an old AC unit that you want to replace, it must first be removed. After the initial visit and sizing, the technicians will start the installation process by removing all the components of the old AC unit. This includes:
- the air ducts
Once the old components are out of the way, installation of the new unit will not take more than a day to complete.
Air Conditioner Installation
Once everything is ready, the actual installation starts with placement of the outdoor unit. The unit will be properly secured to the ground. The installation of the indoor cabinet takes place afterwards. The HVAC contractor installs the refrigerant tubing and electrical wires. The installation of new air ducts takes place. Air vents and registers are put in place. At this point, the installation of all of the components has taken place. Now, the unit is plugged into a power outlet.
Once everything is in place, the installers will turn on the AC system and test everything. They will check how both the indoor and outdoor units work. They will also measure the indoor temperature against the temperature setting on the thermostat.
Before reviewing all the necessary paperwork and collecting payment from the client, the lead technician will explain to the client how the cooling system works. They will also cover what signs to watch out for in case there is a problem.
