What to Expect From Your AC Installation

Getting a new air conditioner installed in your home can be a stressful process, even if you’ve been through the process before. From the disruption to your daily life to the cost of investing in a new system, it’s no surprise that even the most unflappable homeowner is likely a little overwhelmed. At Absolute Comfort Air, we understand how stressful air conditioner installation can be, which is why we’ve created this guide to help you prepare for the entire process.

Before the Installation

The first step in AC replacement is choosing a unit to replace your old AC with. There are quite a few factors to consider when looking for a new unit but don’t worry — the Absolute Comfort Air team will walk you through the process and help you choose your new AC unit. Before installation, our team will do a few things to help you find a new unit and determine the extent of the installation services. These include:

  • Calculating the AC size (cooling capacity) your home needs.
  • Inspecting the attic space, windows and doors for energy efficiency problems.
  • Assessing the quality of the ductwork.
  • Discussing your wants, needs and budget to find the best unit for you.
  • Quoting the cost of installation.

First, one of our technicians will calculate your home’s cooling needs. Based on the size of the house, the climate, the number of residents and much more, they will determine the right “size” AC unit for your house. Then you and the technician will discuss your personal wants and needs, including energy efficiency and budget. From there, we will be able to help you choose the best unit for your home and begin the installation.

Installation Day

Installation day is easily the most stressful part of getting a new air conditioner, but Absolute Comfort Air makes it easy. Our installation team will arrive on time with your new AC and begin working immediately. The technicians will move furniture out of the way if necessary and lay down tarps to protect your floors before removing the old air conditioner. Once the old AC is out, they will quickly install your new air conditioner to the manufacturer’s specifications. 

Our installation technicians understand that every minute they are working is another minute that you don’t have air conditioning in your home. That’s why they will do everything they can to ensure a smooth installation and get your AC up and running as quickly as possible. However, you should be prepared for possible complications that extend the installation time. The Absolute Comfort Air team will communicate any issues to you and will be happy to answer any of your questions along the way.

How can I prepare for installation?

Our customers often ask if there’s anything they can do to prepare for the installation day and make the process faster. For everyone’s safety, we ask that you keep pets and small children out of the work area. While they certainly don’t mind doing it on their own, installation teams appreciate when homeowners have moved any furniture and personal belongings out of the way before they arrive. This ensures that all of your belongings and furniture are safely moved to where you want them and allows the team to start the installation immediately.

The Finished Product

Once the installation is complete, one of our technicians will run a quick system test to ensure that everything is working properly. Then they’ll go over how to operate your new AC unit, answering any questions you have. Before leaving, the technician will recommend a regular maintenance schedule to keep your new AC running in top condition for years to come.

What Our Customers Have To Say

Had Us Up and Running in a Couple of Hours

Tanner was our service tech. Our heat quit on a Friday night and I called Absolute Comfort Air on Saturday morning. Tanner came to our home about an hour and a half after my phone call and diagnose the problem, explained the circumstances, and gave me a detailed quote. He then proceeded to make the repair.  He worked steadily and had us up and running in a couple of hours. Tanner was very polite, explained things in detail, and answered my questions very patiently. Thank you for a job well done.

Simply The Best!

I’ve been without heat since Saturday when my heat pump went out. I called Absolute Comfort and Alex came out and confirmed that after 19 years it had died. Kevin came out yesterday morning and he and Mark came this morning to check on things. Wayne and D.J. installed my new system. My house is warmer than it’s been in years and I wanted to thank you all for the fast, courteous and efficient manner you took care of my problem. Y’all are simply the best!!

Explained Everything to Me

I had a service technician by the name of Tanner visit my house today and go through a check list of all the components of my HVAC and found everything to be good and working at it’s best. He was very professional, courteous, and explained everything to me when he completed his work so I could understand it all. I would recommend Tanner to preform any and all maintenance required to anyone’s system.
