Are you thinking of getting air conditioner installation services for your home? Whether you just moved into your house or have happily lived there for years, it’s always important to know what to expect when you make an appointment with your air conditioning company for a new installation.
Take Time to Prepare
There are a few things you’ll need to do to prepare your home for ac installation. This includes creating a clean space for the ac technician to work in and making sure the ductwork of your old ac system is spic and span. You certainly don’t want your new air conditioner to be covered in dust. After you’re done cleaning, take time to have a good conversation with your ac repairman over the phone. That’s because it’s essential that you provide him with the correct information to ensure that the correct ac system is installed in your home. On the day that the repairman arrives, be sure your pets are in a secure area of your home, so they don’t escape during the installation process.
Be Ready for the Initial Quote
When you call your local air conditioner repair service for an installation quote, the technician will need to know specific information, like:
The air conditioner model you’re interested in
- The size of your house
- The number of rooms in your house
- Your interest in energy efficiency
- Your address
- Your phone number
After this information is taken down over the phone, your ac repairman will suggest a time to come by to inspect your property.
Get Your Property Inspected
When your local air conditioner repairman visits your home to inspect it for the new installation, he’ll go over:
- The location of your windows
- The location of your doors
- The size of your family
- The square footage of your home
After your ac technician is done inspecting your property, they’ll spend a little time talking to you to find out more about your air conditioner needs. Be sure not to rush this process, as the information collected needs to be as accurate as possible to ensure that you get a fair quote. Remember, the initial quote you receive over the phone will be a ballpark number. The condition of your property and your exact air conditioning needs may change it.
AC Install Timeline
Every ac installation is going to be slightly different and that’s why it’s hard to give an exact timeframe on how long it will take. However, in most cases, your new unit should be installed in one day. Factors like the condition of your ductwork, the square footage of your home, and how hard it will be for the ac repairman to access your ac system all play a role in how many hours the total process will take.
