Air Conditioner Installation: What To Expect

air conditioner installation service in Lakehurst NJDuring the summer months, it gets inconveniently hot but you have nothing to worry about when your AC is functioning properly. A well-installed air conditioner will keep you cool and comfortable even if the temperature outside is scorching hot. The key to getting the best performance out of your cooling system is proper maintenance. However, when it is time to replace your old system with a new one, there are some things to consider. Always hire an experienced and qualified HVAC contractor to install and maintain your air conditioning system.

You may be tempted to try out your DIY skills on your cooling system but, this is not a good move. You do not have the experience and the technical competence to handle complex HVAC equipment. If you insist on experimenting with these units, you may damage them and this will affect their performance and lifespan.

Always insist on a qualified and competent expert to carry out maintenance on your cooling and heating systems. This expert will help you in the following ways.

Home Visit

Get in touch with a reputable air conditioner installation company and make sure the technicians are NATE-certified. These experts cannot install the HVAC units from their office so you should fix a date for them to visit your home.

Once they get to your house, these technicians will take a good look at the design of your home. This will help them determine where to install the following things:

  • Air ducts
  • Condenser
  • Vents
  • Indoor cabinet
  • Register

The technicians will measure the floor space in your house and carry out a comprehensive load calculation. This calculation will help identify the cooling system that is best for your house. After this assessment visit, the technicians will give you an accurate quote for the job. In you accept the quote, your technician will begin the installation process. Note that for a ductless system, the best place for the air handlers and the condenser unit is inside your home.

In case you have an old air conditioner that you want to remove, the installation process will start with the removal of this A/C. All the components of this old system must be removed. These include:

  • The evaporator
  • The compressor
  • The air ducts

Once you have removed all that is left of the old system, installing the new air conditioning unit should not take more than 24 hours.

AC Installation

Once this unit is secured to the ground, the installation of the indoor cabinet takes place. After this step, the technicians install the electrical wires and the refrigerant tubing. Also, the air vents, air ducts and registers are put in place. Now, all the components are installed so the technicians can simply plug the unit into a power outlet.


Once the air conditioner has been installed, it is time to test it. This is done by turning on the AC to check its performance. Apart from checking for mechanical and electrical performance, the experts will also check out air quality. They will compare the indoor temperature with the temperature setting on your thermostat.

User Education

The technicians should not just install the air conditioning system and return to their offices. They should also educate the client on how the system works. This way, the customers will know how to operate the cooling unit perfectly. The clients will also know what to look out for in case there is a problem down the line.
