Air Conditioning Installation
As your AC system gets older, it becomes less efficient. That doesn't only mean higher utility bills—it means less comfort on hot, humid days.
With a new, energy-efficient system, you can cut those cooling bills and stay comfortable at all times. But there are many options available to you. Is your current setup right for your home and your part of the country? What is your current unit's Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating? Would a different type of HVAC system serve you better?
That's where we can help. All AC installation providers are not alike. Contact us to schedule a no-cost, expert analysis of the benefits of replacing your system and learn more about our customized air conditioning installation services—which are backed by our Exceptional Service Guarantee.

Terms to know
We know you aren’t an expert in what makes your air conditioning function— that’s why you called us! You might hear our technicians mention a few of the terms below, but always feel free to ask if you have any questions:
- Air Handler — the indoor unit that provides conditioned air circulation through your home. An air-handling unit includes a blower, heating and/or cooling elements, filter racks or chambers and dampers.
- Compressor — In a central air conditioning system, the compressor (and the condenser) is located in the box outside your home and compresses refrigerant to initiate the cooling process.
- Evaporator Coil — the part of the air conditioning system that actually pulls heat out of your home’s air by allowing the refrigerant to evaporate, which extracts heat from the surrounding air, lowering the air temperature.
- Refrigerant — A substance found in the evaporator coils that moves from gas to liquid to exchange heat to produce a cooling effect.
- Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) — SEER is a standardized measurement for the overall operating efficiency of an air conditioning system. The higher the system's SEER rating, the more efficient it is at converting energy into air cooling.
The AC Installation Process
If you’re considering HVAC installation for your home, it’s a good idea to know what you’re getting into before the technicians arrive. This preparation can give you peace of mind, especially when you see all the work that goes into air conditioning install service.
The process begins with an evaluation of your existing equipment to check for leaks or any other issues that might impact the performance of your new system. This is generally when any repairs to your current infrastructure are performed. The next step in air conditioning replacement is the removal of the outmoded unit.
Once the old unit has been removed, it’s time to install the AC unit replacement. This portion of the work may involve replacing piping or electrical and ductwork connections, if the hookups differ in any way. Electrical connections are checked, and refrigerant is added to the system per the manufacturer’s instructions at this time, as well.
After all this has been completed, the technician will connect your new air conditioner and test it to ensure everything is working the way it should. If it passes the test, this is usually when a new thermostat is installed or the existing one checked. After a final check to make sure your new HVAC system is in good working order, you should receive a few reminders about proper maintenance services.
