How To Prepare For Your AC Installation

Recommendations For An Efficient AC Replacement

Discovering that your AC no longer works can be a nightmare, but installing a new one can be exciting! With a new air conditioner, you can feel confident in its ability to defend your home against the heat.

Although the new cooling unit will bring your Hueytown home the cool air it needs, the installation part can be stressful. To make the process a little easier for everyone involved, it’s a good idea to prepare ahead of time for your AC installation.

Getting ready can ensure a smooth process from the start! Follow these tips from our team at Brown Heating, Cooling & Plumbing to prepare for your AC service.

How Long Does It Take To Replace An Air Conditioner?

Installing heating and air conditioning systems takes time. Home air conditioning installation will take around 4-8 hours when completed by a professional. However, this timeframe varies based on many factors such as preparation and system type.

If you prepare for your cooling unit installation ahead of time, you might be able to speed up the process a little. If you have any questions about the timeline, you can also reach out to a professional! At Brown Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, we’re happy to help!

Tips For Residential HVAC Installation Prep

For an easy and efficient installation, there are steps you can take before the HVAC professionals even walk through the door! The following tips can help you ensure a seamless installation process.

Know Your HVAC Unit

All projects need a thorough game plan! To prepare for installation, familiarize yourself with your new unit and what your goals are. By understanding the components of the system, you’ll be able to determine if there are any questions or concerns you’d like to address.

At Brown Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, our team is here to provide expert support throughout the whole process. We want you to feel confident in your new AC, which is why you can count on us to carefully assess any concerns you may have.

Clean Up For The Installation Pros

As cleaning the house when guests come over is the norm, the same goes when inviting an AC installation team through your doors. Make a clear path from the door to your air conditioner with lots of space to ensure an easy walkway.

Be sure to make more space than you normally need. Professionals usually have tools and parts they will carry through and lay on the ground.

Cleaning also applies outdoors! You may need to trim your shrubs and clean any debris surrounding your outdoor HVAC unit. This will make the replacement process easier. You wouldn’t want time to be spent on yard maintenance instead of AC installation!

Consider Keeping Kids And Pets Away From The Process

With heavy machinery, electrical components and tools, AC installation can be dangerous. If pets and young children are around during the installation process, they may let curiosity get the best of them and try to investigate.

This can make it harder for technicians to work efficiently. More importantly, it can also be dangerous for your children or pets. After all, you don’t want them getting into hazardous materials or being exposed to any sharp or electrical system parts.

Try keeping pets or children away from the installation process, and if necessary, try to arrange for them to stay with a babysitter or pet sitter. That way, you aren’t focused on caretaking and project attending at the same time. This can help you be more attentive and communicative with the HVAC team about any questions that pop up throughout the process.

Prepare For Hiccups

As with any project, it’s a good idea to plan for unforeseen circumstances. This can include replacing more parts or fixing uncovered damages.

At Brown Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, we’ll do our best in the initial planning stages to estimate the length of the project. However, you can never know if something unexpected might happen in the process.

The Service Was Excellent

We called late one evening after our AC went out. They were very responsive and technician David Monk was at our home at 8:00am the next day as promised. He diagnosed the issue, got the part needed, installed and tested it all by 10:00am. The service was excellent and David was so nice and personable. I would highly recommend this company.
