Excessive use of AC can cause your air conditioner to start operating insufficiently. Age of the AC can be a good indicator of whether or not to simply repair or entirely replace an AC, we suggest replacing your air conditioner every 12 to 15 years to ensure energy efficiency and proper operation. If your AC system is a decade old or more and isn’t working as effectively as before, Home IQ Engineers are qualified professional can assess your unit and help you make an informed decision.

The cost varies depends on brand and type of air conditioner because some AC systems are more labor-intensive and require more time to complete.

Types of Air Conditioner

1. Central Air Conditioning- this is the most normal type of cooling system as it is the best for larger homes due to its potentiality to cool accurately. Central air conditioners circulate cool air all over supply and return ducts. Supply ducts and registers, which are in the ceiling, transfer cooled air into the home. Afterwards, time was when the air becomes warm it transmit back into the supply ducts and registers where it will then be transported back to the air conditioner.

As the system’s size is crucial to its functionality, installation of a central air conditioning system requires a lot of planning and preparation. Even if the installation is energy-efficient, you will find that your utility costs are higher than they should be if the system is the wrong size.

2. Ductable Split Unit- Through the use of ducts, ducted air conditioning funnels cool air from a central unit (usually installed in your roof) into every room of your home. The circulation of air is usually zoned, which allows you to control the airflow, temperature, and turn off individual zones.

Standard steps our Home IQ Engineers will take during an air conditioning installation include the following:

  • Removal of  the Old AC System – This part of the process may involve accessing your ceiling, where the AC system is located. After cutting the power, they remove the refrigerant in the AC system, disassemble it, and remove the old equipment.
  • Modifying or Repairing of Ductwork – Repairing or replacing ductwork might be necessary for your  installation. One or more of our team members will take care of this work while our Engineer  starts assembling your new AC system.
  • Installing  the New AC Unit – Our Engineers will install your new air conditioning system according to the manufacturer’s specifications to ensure proper function. We may perform installations inside and outside your home or business, depending on the type of AC system.
  • Testing and Commissioning of  the New AC System – After our Engineers has finished installing the AC unit, it goes through vacuum and pressure tests before we charge the system using new refrigerant. A complete inspection is accomplished, and then we activate and retest the system once we’ve added the refrigerant.
