What Is The Installation Process For A New AC
Investing in a new air conditioning system just in time for summer is a great home improvement idea. Not only will it help keep your family cool in the south Texas heat, but it will also save you money with increased energy efficiency. So here’s what you can expect during the typical air conditioner installation process from Champion AC.
Once the proper AC system is selected for your needs, our installation team will arrive to set everything up. First, our team will take steps to protect your floors and carpets. We’ll wear shoe covers and lay down sheets over the most heavily trafficked areas. Next, we’ll safely disconnect and remove your old air conditioning equipment – both the inside air handler/furnace and the condenser outside.
Now that the old equipment is removed, it’s time to begin installing your new system. The first piece to be put in place is the outside condenser. We’ll set it on your old pad or a new one, if needed. We’ll then connect the copper lineset and solder it. Nex,t we’ll connect the wires outside.
Once all that is complete, we’ll begin installing the new air handler or furnace inside your home. This will either go in the attic or closet, depending on your home’s layout. We’ll connect the wires and reseal the plenum once everything is in place.
Now that your system is installed, you become part of the process. We’ll remove your old thermostat and install an energy-efficient, programmable thermostat for you. We’ll walk you through the process of programming your new air conditioner, so you can save the most money possible.
Finally, we’ll run a system check to make sure everything is working properly. We’ll then show you how to change your air filter and talk about the importance of proper maintenance. We’ll handle the needed paperwork and then clean up the job scene. From there, we’re on our way.
The typical installation job takes anywhere from four to six hours, but it could take a little longer depending on the individual situation.
