If your air conditioner has completely gone out, the only option is to have a new one installed. Once you’ve decided on which company to use and have worked with them to determine the right unit for your home, it’s time to get ready for the actual day of installation. If you’re not sure what that will involve, you’ll be glad to know that you don’t have to do much other than be home to let the experts in. Here’s what you can expect to happen when your new air conditioner is being installed.
Removal of the Old Unit
Your new air conditioner installation will begin with the removal of the old unit. The installer will disconnect the outdoor compressor from your home’s electric grid and from the rest of the HVAC system. Once this is done, he or she will load up the old unit for disposal.
Installation of the New Unit
Next, the installer or team of installers places the new compressor in the same place the old one was and connects all of the necessary wiring and piping. They may also bolt the compressor onto the concrete slab to keep it in place. If you’re having a larger unit put in, the installers may first need to have a larger concrete slab built before continuing with the air conditioner installation. However, this is rarely the case. The only time you may need to have a larger unit put in is when you are combining multiple living areas, such as if you purchased both halves of a duplex and are combining them into a single house.
They will also walk you through the system’s details, including how to use the new thermostat if they had to install one. You can also like them on Facebook for more information.
