What to Expect When You’re Expecting… A New AC

August 2, 2021 | Blog

Your AC is often your saving grace during those hot summer and warm early fall months in San Antonio. No one wants to experience the dreaded AC breakdown. While proper AC maintenance can help maintain and preserve your air conditioning system, your AC unit simply won’t last forever.

Since new air conditioning systems only need to be installed every 15-20 years, an AC replacement and installation can be an unfamiliar and intimidating process for some homeowners. We here at Air Clinic San Antonio try to make the installation process as seamless as possible by guaranteeing reliable and quick service, providing quality products and recruiting professional team members.

Still, it’s helpful to be prepared for what to expect when you’re getting an AC replacement to make yourself more comfortable and familiar with the process, so we compiled a list of what customers can expect from a new installation.

What To Expect Throughout the AC Installation Process

1. An In-Home Visit

Prior to the at-home visit you should have done your research on San Antonio HVAC companies and contractors for San Antonio AC Installation, ensuring that you can expect only professionals on your property. During the initial at-home visit, the team member who will be potentially performing your AC installation will evaluate the size of your home, your cooling needs, and which air conditioner size best suits your needs.

Your contractor will also utilize this time and visit to determine the best places to install the following components of the air conditioning system:

  • Air ducts
  • Vents
  • Indoor cabinet
  • Register
  • Condenser (inside if it’s a ductless system)
  • Air handlers (only for a ductless system and inside)

2. Removal of your old AC unit

Before performing your AC replacement, your technicians will have to remove your old air conditioning unit. They will remove the old components and clear the space they determined was the best place for installing your new unit.

3. AC Installation

After your old unit is completely removed from your property, the installation of your new unit can begin. This is arguably the most crucial part of your AC replacement process. Having a good installation helps prevent larger problems down the road. The technician from the San Antonio HVAC company you contracted with will secure your new unit to the ground and then install the indoor cabinet, electrical wires, refrigerant tubing, air vents, air ducts, and registers.

4. Testing Your Unit & Instruction

After your new unit has been completely installed your air conditioning system will be turned on and tested to be sure that everything works properly before your technician leaves. Your technician will also ensure that you are educated on how to navigate and work your new system.
