Did you think that installing your brand new air conditioner was as simple as hooking up a couple of cords and wires? Homeowners often believe that it takes very little expertise to properly install a new AC unit. Unfortunately, this leads many people to receive subpar work and an air conditioning unit that isn’t appropriate for their home. The proper installation of your air conditioning unit starts long before the day it arrives on your doorstep.

From start to finish, you should know what to expect and how to hold your HVAC professional accountable for excellent service. This installation checklist should help you understand just what is expected of your air conditioning service company from the beginning of your process all the way through to installation.

Before You Buy

Before you make a decision on what type of air conditioner is right for your home, your HVAC professional should do a few things to help you decide. Here are some of the more important items that you should ensure your technician does from the very beginning.

  • Have you measured the home to calculate the proper size of the necessary equipment?
  • Are you going to install a properly matched coil inside the home?
  • Will the new unit be compatible with my existing ductwork?
  • Are there any Energy Star or other energy-efficient options available in this proper size?
  • Will I need a new thermostat to control this new air conditioner?
  • Are there any local rebates available to offset the cost of this purchase?

During Installation

Many people believe that their HVAC company can assist them in finding the proper unit. However, they doubt whether they know how to effectively hook it up. While we won’t dive into all of the details on how to install a new air conditioning unit, there are a few things that should be done at the same time. Here are a few of the tasks that an excellent company will perform while they are installing a new unit.

  • Will you set different temperature controls for the different zones in the home?
  • Will the existing ductwork be checked for leaks and other forms of damage?
  • Can you repair or insulate the ductwork during installation if necessary?
  • Do you plan to test whether the leakage of air from the ductwork exceeds the recommended amount?
  • Will you confirm the levels of refrigerant?

After Installation

After the installation is over, you need to know how to properly take care of your new air conditioner. Expect your technician to review a few of these things with you before they leave.

  • Demonstrate how to replace the air filters in the new HVAC system.
  • Show me how to set my new thermostat and program it properly for maximum energy savings.
  • Offer third-party verification that the system was installed correctly, if applicable.
  • Leave all manuals and documentation with me.

When you have a new air conditioner installed, you want to make sure that it was done right. Our HVAC technicians are fully licensed and insured, ready to help cool your home down the right way. Give Classic Air Conditioning and Heating a call today!

We've been using Classic Air Conditioning & Heating Services for the past five years to include Installation of new units (flawless by the way), bi-annual check-ups that are scheduled and carried out without a second thought on my part, and in emergencies (backed up drain in the bathroom with a response time in under 24 hours to troubleshoot the problem). Their technicians are master's at their craft, personable, and cut to the chase on his service calls. I never feel like I'm being given the run around or a sales pitch with this company. Today, Mitchell Wesch went above and beyond walking us through what was happening and provided a multitude of options and expected timelines for future repairs. Once again, a great example of exemplary customer service. He was able to troubleshoot the problem with zero delay. We're ready for the Texas summer, and are already looking forward to the next scheduled service call. Thank you Classic Services for keeping our home healthy and happy.

Theresa did an amazing job! She informed me about everything she was doing and took extra pictures so I could have them for my record. She was quick but still answered all my questions. She definitely saved the day when my condensor froze over on the coldest day of the year, leaving my family in the cold. She was out at my house within the hour and had everything fixed in minutes.
