A Step-By-Step Guide To AC Replacement

Is it time for an AC replacement for your home? Whether you're replacing your current AC because it is too old, too small, or too inefficient, it helps to ensure that the process is done correctly. The best way to accomplish this is to use a professional AC installer for the job.

Here's what to expect during a professional AC replacement.

AC Consultation

Consultations are the first step in establishing working relationships with AC professionals. During your initial AC consultation, an AC contractor will inspect your existing AC system and discuss your needs, preferences, and budget.

Keep a list of all known issues and make your AC equipment easy to access to help make the assessment process easier.

AC Selection

Based on your needs, preferences, and budget, the contractor will suggest a few AC replacement options that match your requirements. They will consider several factors, such as the size of your home, energy efficiency, and installation cost, to help you choose the best AC unit for your needs.

AC Removal

On the day of your AC replacement, the contractor will uninstall the unwanted AC unit, meticulously disconnecting the wiring and plumbing to ensure safe and efficient removal. They can also help you ensure proper disposal of the old unit.

AC Installation Preparedness

Your AC replacement requires proper preparation of the area where the new AC unit will be installed. In this regard, the contractor may clean the installation area, eliminate any obstacles, and install a new concrete pad if necessary to ensure a quality installation job.

AC Installation

Once the installation area is ready, the contractor will install the new AC unit, carefully inspecting and connecting the wiring and plumbing to ensure proper functioning.

Any manufacturing defects or severe shipping damages that may be discovered when unboxing the new AC unit will be brought to your attention so you can contact your distributor immediately.

Post Installation Inspection

After installation, the contractor will test the new AC unit to ensure smooth and efficient operation. They will also inspect the unit to check for any leaks, loose parts, or other issues.

Site Cleanup

Once the contractor ascertains that everything is working properly, they will remove any dirt and debris from the job site, leaving it as clean and tidy as they found it.

Final Walkthrough 

The AC contractor will provide clear and concise instructions for the proper use and maintenance of your new AC unit. They will also answer any questions you may have.
