Sunday Morning Tip for June 05: Is it hard to install an AC?

<span>Sunday Morning Tip for June 05:</span> Is it hard to install an AC?
  • Opening Intro -

    When you have an urgent need to get an AC installed, you may contemplate the possibility of doing the job yourself.

    You figure that an AC install is a job you can tackle on your own.


However, before making this decision, you should know that not only is it hard work, but if you don’t do it well, you may risk compromising your new and expensive unit.

Consider that installing an air conditioning system will require a lot of heavy lifting, plenty of manual labor, may require that you crawl under the house, and even pour a concrete foundation if needed.

Are you prepared, or do you have the skill set that will be required? If the answer is no, you will be much better off calling on the professionals. If you do, the hardest thing you will be doing is signing the contract and paying the bill.

What are the advantages of hiring a professional to do the AC installation?

Besides skipping all the manual labor and risking messing up the equipment before it is ever installed, other benefits of hiring a professional AC installer are:

  • Avoid the Paperwork

    Don’t forget that installing an AC does not only entail the physical labor part, but you would also have to take care of all the paperwork. New AC systems generally require paperwork to obtain the necessary permits from your town or municipality.

    Getting the permit when you have never tackled this type of task before will fill you with frustration.

    Get ready to spend hours on the phone, fill out complicated applications, and sit and wait at your local government offices waiting to issue the permit. Once the project gets the green light, wait for inspectors and approve the job or find fault with it.

    Don’t give yourself these huge headaches and hire a professional with experience and contacts.

  • Get Ongoing Maintenance Covered

    You know that everything in a house will eventually break down and need to be replaced. From the oven that doesn’t heat to the water heater that only gives you cold water, or a roof that springs a leak, it seems like taking care of your house is a never-ending project.

    Your AC will also require ongoing maintenance to keep giving you the fresh air you expect from it.

    Professional AC installers usually offer a maintenance package when they install your AC. You may have them come every time the seasons change, twice a year, or yearly, depending on what they recommend for your type of unit and the weather.

    By performing ongoing maintenance, you will prolong the life of your investment and enjoy it for many years to come.

  • Satisfaction of a Job Well Done

    If you are replacing an existing AC unit, the old unit might contain a hazardous refrigerant to remove. This is not something you should attempt on your own if you have never done it before.

    You may have to call upon somebody that is certified to remove these substances. Rather than facing a significant risk or skipping an important step that you had no idea had to be done, rest assured that when you call a professional, you will get a job that is thorough and safe.
