3 Things You Should Know about Installing an Air Conditioner

Air Conditioning

When it comes to air conditioning installation or replacement, the most important thing to know is that it is just not a job for an amateur. Professionals can handle the installation process safely and make sure that all of the components are properly in place for the best possible performance and efficiency. Here are a few more things you should know to make the process go a little more smoothly.

Replace the inside and outside components for the best results

An honest technician will detail all of your options for you when it comes to a major issue with your AC. Often, a repair is possible, but not without a high cost and a risk of further problems. The technician may recommend replacing the entire outside compressor unit, but in order to ensure proper performance, it may be best to replace both halves of the system. The inside and outside portions of your AC are designed to work with one another, and mismatched parts can cause efficiency issues. A matched system may run for longer and operate more smoothly.

The size of an air conditioner is key to performance and efficiency

One of the most overlooked and most important parts of air conditioning installation is the initial sizing. An air conditioner that is too small will probably have trouble cooling the room. You will be less comfortable, but the system will still consume a lot of energy and raise your bills. A unit that is too large can actually encounter similar issues. Sizing the AC involves accounting for many different factors besides just square footage, such as the number of people in the home, any insulation, and the placement of windows.

You have more options than you may think

The two types of AC systems most people think of when it comes to installation are the traditional central air conditioning system and the window unit. But there are a couple of options you may not know are available to you. A ductless system is a great replacement for a window unit, as it runs much more efficiently and without so much noise. And a heat pump is a central AC and heating system all in one!

Called Advanced Home Services to schedule a routine furnace cleaning. Stewart did a great job and even tagged all our gas and water line so we would know which lines to shut off in case of an emergency. He was very friendly and helpful. I will be calling these guys for any future plumbing and heating issues that may pop up.


When Robert C came for a routine check found a leak under my kitchen sink. He discovered the main source of the problem and had the time to fix it right away before it became worse. He did a fantastic job and went above and beyond what was required. He was very friendly and so helpful and did a fantastic job.
