Air Conditioner Installation

What to Consider for Air Conditioning Installation

The dog days of summer call for one major thing: central AC. As summers get more intense, it’s becoming almost impossible to go without AC. Approximately 80% of US citizens have air conditioning, and for good reason. As summer progresses and heat waves become more frequent, air conditioning has become a lifesaving tool in some areas.

Ace Hardware Home Services have served fresh, cold air in your home for over 70 years. We know just how vital a new AC unit can be for improving your quality of life. As a homeowner, deciding what to do when it’s time for a new air conditioner is challenging. Whatever you decide is probably with you for the next 15 years. Our certified technicians are here and ready to help you choose the best unit for your home.

Product Selection

The first thing to do is decide which unit you want for your home. There are many options, and selecting the one that fits your needs is crucial. If it’s too small, it won’t keep your home cool, but if it’s too big, it won’t clear out the humidity. And that can lead to a mold issue. Proper central air installation has a massive impact on the air quality in your home.  

In January 2023, the Department of Energy updated its standards for packaged air conditioners. The new requirements increased minimum efficiency by 15%, which means any new central air installation you have will help lower your energy bills. They also increased the threshold for Energy Star appliances, so units that were applicable before no longer meet the standard.

New Installs

The air conditioning installation process can be a lengthy one. Many homeowners are surprised when they learn how much goes into it. It’s a job you need professional help with. Many units are larger now than they used to be, which means two things for homeowners. First, it’s more challenging to transport and second, you may run into unexpected issues. 

Our technicians are used to both these things, and we have the tools to get the job done quickly. AC installation is a lengthy process if you’re unfamiliar with the work, but we can usually complete it in less than a day. Then there’s no worry about renting a truck or having an unforeseen issue pop up.

Cost and Time

The last thing to consider is cost and time. A high-end AC installation takes more out of pocket now, but it makes a significant difference in your energy bills. The cost varies widely depending on the area you live in and the type of unit you need. Ace Hardware Home Services offer competitive pricing and a full one-year warranty on all correctly installed products.
