The AC Installation Process
Using a hole saw attachment, the holes needed to secure the AC unit are drilled. A ductwork is then installed that conveys air away from the cooling system and into several rooms. The AC unit is then secured with bolts and screws. The electrical connection is made properly and the new air conditioner is ready for use. Here are some steps to follow during the AC installation process:
While a home inspector’s evaluation of your home’s HVAC system can be invaluable, it’s also important to understand how each system works. Because of the complexity of these systems, it’s critical to understand how your current system works before it’s time for a replacement. That’s why home inspectors have to follow certain guidelines, including following Texas Real Estate Commission guidelines. Using a trained home inspector will help you avoid the pitfalls and ensure that your home’s new AC system is installed properly.
When it comes to the AC installation process, proper condenser placement is of utmost importance. Proper placement will maximize cooling efficiency while minimizing safety risks and possible damages. Additionally, if the AC condenser is placed near a tree or other low-hanging branch, it may suffer damage due to falling branches and bark. Even if the condenser is not damaged, it may still make weird noises.
There are many important things to consider when resizing your ductwork. The right sized ducts will make your HVAC system run more efficiently, while the wrong sized ducts will only work inefficiently and make the whole process of cooling or heating your home a hassle. Choosing the correct duct size is crucial to the performance of your HVAC system, and the right HVAC contractor can help you determine the proper size based on the square footage of your home, the type of unit, and any other variables that will affect the flow of air in the house.
Removal of old air conditioner
There are many steps involved in removing an old air conditioning unit before a new one is installed. First, the crew must gain access to the old system. Typically, these units are found in the basement, attic, or crawl space. Once inside, they must shut down the power to the old unit, remove the refrigerant, and disassemble the old equipment. This process can take as long as three days, depending on the size of the old air conditioning unit.
Inspection of cooling infrastructure
You’ve likely heard that energy inspections are essential for AC maintenance and installation, but you might be wondering what exactly they involve. These inspections will take approximately one hour, and may require an additional thirty to forty-five minutes if your system requires refrigerant. After they complete their inspection, the ARS/Rescue Rooter technician will present a checklist to you and share their recommendations for your air conditioning system.
Cost of installation
If you’re looking to save money on your utility bills, it’s a good idea to install a new AC. A new system can help you cut your bills by over sixty percent! Even if you’re staying in the same house for years to come, investing in an energy-efficient AC system is a wise move. The cost of installing a new AC system will depend on several factors, including the unit’s size, SEER efficiency rating, and brand and manufacturer.
