Frequently Asked Questions About AC Installation
How often should you replace your air conditioning unit?
If you have consistent maintenance, you can expect your air conditioner to last between 15 and 20 years.
However, it would be best if you started planning for your AC replacement when your unit is around 12 years old and exhibiting signs of decreased efficiency and increased service needs.
This gives you time to save money for your new air conditioner and ensures you’re ready if a premature breakdown occurs.
Can you replace just the AC compressor?
Yes, you can replace just the AC compressor. However, this is only a feasible option if your system is still under warranty. Otherwise, you are better served by replacing the entire unit.
Replacing major components of your air conditioner piece by piece will cost more in the long run.
How is central AC installed?
During your air conditioning installation appointment, you can expect your technician to:
Help you choose the properly sized unit
Modify ductwork to accommodate your unit
Install the interior unit near your furnace
Install the exterior unit on a level place near the electrical service panel
Connect the two halves of the system
Connect the system to the electrical supply and thermostat
Charge and start up the unit
