What Does Standard AC Installation Involve?
An air conditioner is key in keeping you comfortable. Whether you’re considering a new installation or a replacement, it’s a good idea to understand standard installation procedures. HVAC professionals can easily install a brand-new system to ensure you stay cool during the summer months.
Here is a step-by-step guide to the AC installation process.
Step 1: Pre-Installation Assessment
The first step is a pre-installation assessment from an HVAC technician. This inspection allows the expert to understand your specific needs, evaluate the size of your home, and examine the existing HVAC system.
Step 2: Old System Removal
If there’s an old unit in place, the next step is its safe removal. The technician will disconnect power, refrigerant lines, and ductwork. These professionals will ensure proper disposal or recycling of the old system according to environmental regulations.
Step 3: Installation of New AC Unit
Next, the HVAC company installs the new central AC unit. The indoor evaporator coil is replaced, and the outdoor condenser unit is positioned appropriately. The technician ensures the outdoor unit is on a level surface and the indoor unit is correctly mounted.
Step 4: Connecting the System
Following the unit installation, the system’s components need to be connected. This includes hooking up refrigerant lines, electrical connections, and drainage lines. The system’s ductwork is also connected to the new unit to distribute cool air throughout your home.
Step 5: Thermostat Installation
The technician will then install and program a thermostat. This device allows you to regulate the temperature in your home to maintain your desired comfort level.
Step 6: System Testing
Finally, the HVAC professional will power the system and run tests to ensure it’s operating efficiently. They’ll check for leaks, measure airflow, and ensure the system responds correctly to the thermostat settings.
Step 7: Final Walkthrough and Education
Once the system is confirmed to be functioning as it should, the HVAC professional will walk you through the new system’s operation. They’ll explain maintenance procedures and answer any questions you may have.
