A standard installation of a home AC unit typically includes the following:
- Removal of the old unit (if necessary)
- Installation of the new condenser unit and evaporator coil
- Installation of a new refrigerant line set and electrical wiring
- Placement of a new concrete pad for the condenser unit (if necessary)
- Connection of the new unit to the ductwork and thermostat
- Testing the system for proper operation and refrigerant charge
- Cleaning up the work area and disposing of any debris or old equipment.
It's important to note that installation requirements can vary depending on the specific unit and the layout of your home, so it's always best to consult with a licensed HVAC professional for a detailed estimate and scope of work.
The amount of time it takes to install a home AC unit can vary depending on several factors, including the size of the unit, the complexity of the installation, and any unexpected challenges that may arise during the process. In general, a standard installation of a central air conditioning unit typically takes between one to three days to complete. However, larger or more complex installations may require additional time.
Here are a few things to help you prepare:
Choose a location: Decide on a location for the new unit. It should be in a shady area away from direct sunlight and obstructions.
Clear the area: Remove any obstructions, debris, or plants around the installation site.
Check the electrical panel: Make sure the electrical panel has enough capacity to handle the new unit's power requirements.
Check the ductwork: Inspect the existing ductwork for leaks or damage that may need to be repaired before the installation.
Clear access: Make sure the installation area is easily accessible for the installer. Clear any clutter or furniture around the area.
Turn off the power: Turn off the power to the existing AC unit before the installation.
Secure any pets: Keep any pets secure and out of the way during the installation process.
