How to Make Sure Your AC Installation Goes Smoothly


Air conditioner installations can take a full day, sometimes more than that. So how do you make sure the entire process goes as smoothly as possible so you don’t end up with a headache in the end?

AC installation in Chevy Chase, MD doesn’t have to be a pain in the neck. Here’s a list of things you can do right from the start to make sure you have a clean, easy installation process.

Choose the Right Contractor

It all starts with making sure you have the right contractor for the job. Without the right AC company at the helm, the project won’t move along all too well. At this stage, all the power is in your hands: who will you choose?

Finding the right contractor should include asking for quotes, time frames, information about service and warranties, and any questions you have about the process.

A good AC installation company will be transparent about the process, the expected cost, and help guide you through the steps so you aren’t blindsided at any point of the installation.

Plan a Pre-Installation Appointment

A pre-installation appointment helps you get a little closer to a final project cost. At this point, a technician will come out and inspect your property, the current AC you have installed, and everything in between.

They’ll look at ductwork, your electrical panel, and do everything they can to make sure the installation goes smoothly from this point. The purpose of a pre-installation appointment is to find out if there will be anything that gets in the way of a timely installation.

If you need new ductwork, that will increase the project costs and timeline. If the electrical panel can’t handle the new AC and that needs to be upgraded, that’s something you should know now before you have a technician show up with a whole air conditioner unit.

While the pre-installation appointment is necessary, it can be disheartening to hear that something else needs to be done prior to installation. Your technician should do everything in their power to make sure you don’t have to extend the project, but sometimes it’s inevitable.

Keep Your Home Clean and Clear

To help minimize the time spent during the actual installation process, keep your home clean and clear of clutter, debris, or obstacles. Make sure your technicians have the fastest way to get to your current AC unit and have room to work as well. This is something you can do after the pre-installation appointment, but it’s definitely helpful.
