AC Installation Process
When it comes time for a replacement or a new AC installation, we’ll present you with your options for a new system. We consider many factors, like whether repairing your current system is worthwhile, your budget, lifestyle, home size, and comfort needs. We can provide a cost comparison and analysis of different options and even help you calculate the savings you could expect from a newer, more energy-efficient system. Once you’ve found a system you love, we’ll schedule a time for installation that works best for you, not the other way around. On the day of the installation, we will carefully remove your old air conditioner, taking care to protect your property in the process. We’ll haul away the old system and properly dispose of it, so you don’t have to worry about that. Then, we’ll professionally install the new AC to manufacturer specifications, adhering to any relevant local codes in your Alpharetta community. Once everything is set up, we’ll run performance tests to ensure it’s working the way it should, debrief you, and answer any questions you may have about the operation and maintenance of your existing new cooling system!
We will also discuss your AC warranty with you and what it covers for your peace of mind.
Air Conditioning Installation FAQs
Besides helping homeowners get the right air conditioning services, 4 Seasons Heating & Air is here to answer your burning AC questions. Let’s look at answers to some of the common inquiries we receive.
How Much Does Air Conditioning Installation Cost?
The final cost of a new AC installation depends on industry averages. In addition to the initial purchase price — affected by the AC type, brand, size, and energy efficiency — labor costs affect the total price tag. They may range between $800 and $2,000 depending on the simplicity or complexity of the installation.
For instance, installing a brand-new AC where none previously existed can cost more than a replacement since the latter offers pre-cut wall sleeves and less labor. Also, upgrading from a space system to a central AC might be pricier due to the complex ductwork needed.
As you search for an air conditioning installation company, you may come across those with low estimates or quotes and other expensive ones. Both these providers may portray the same features. However, the difference will be apparent regarding the services offered.
We recommend partnering with a reputable AC installation company to increase your chances of satisfaction during service delivery. A reliable team will work towards matching you with the perfect AC that’ll achieve your cooling needs for years and installing the system right to minimize malfunctions.
What Should You Consider Before an AC Installation?
The first thing to do before an AC installation is to choose a system. Our AC pros have curated a list of things to consider to get you started:
- Size of the area to be cooled. A big house with a large cooling area will need a powerful air conditioning system.
- Price of the AC. Work within your budget and settle on an affordable AC.
- Your local climate. Air conditioners for homes in predominantly warm areas will vary from those in colder locations.
- AC features. Timers, energy efficiency, and remote control are some features to consider when window shopping for an air conditioner.
What’s the Best Time to Install an Air Conditioner in Your Home?
Spring and fall are the perfect time for an AC installation. Besides having moderate weather, the seasons offer the opportunity to prep your home for cooling just before the scorching summer heat.
An early installation will help you avoid the summer rush when many people are installing new equipment, which means better AC deals and affordable service rates.
How Can You Save Money From New AC Installations?
A new AC installation can save you on utility bills if you’re upgrading from an old and inefficient system, but there’s more to making the most out of your investment:
- Compare the prices of similar systems across various companies.
- Ask for a referral from a satisfied customer.
- Read online reviews to gain a better understanding of what you can expect from the quality of the service to pricing.
- Inquire about the available financing options for a new air conditioning installation.
- Choose the right-sized AC for your home’s size.
- Have professional installations to minimize costly repairs in the future.
