How to Prepare for an Air Conditioner Installation

This entry was posted in Blog on by .

Are you ready for a new air conditioner that will cool your home more efficiently and effectively? Before you can begin enjoying the benefits of a new unit, you’ll need to go through the process of an air conditioner installation. No, it’s not a headache, but there are ways to make the process fast and hassle-free.

Clean the Area Around the Install Site

First and foremost, you will want to remove debris, overgrown vegetation, dirt and twigs from around the area where the new unit will be installed. This will speed up the process of the installation and enable your new unit to work most effectively. The goal is to have a level, clean installation site before the installer arrives.

Clear a Path for the Installer

An air conditioner can weigh more than 500 pounds. Getting it from a truck in front of your home to the installation site is challenging under the best of circumstances. You don’t want to make it more difficult by blocking the path with patio furniture, garbage cans and other items. Ideally, the installation site should be easy to access, not just for installation but also for maintenance and any needed repairs down the road.

Have Your Questions Ready

While your air conditioner installer is at your home, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions pertaining to the proper operation and maintenance of your unit. You also can ask about warning signs that can indicate a potential problem, when you should schedule tune-ups and how often you should replace air filters.
