What to Expect During an Air Conditioner Replacement Service

The thought of replacing your air conditioner can be pretty overwhelming, but the process is made easy with Dallas Plumbing & Air Conditioning on your side. Here’s what you can expect when our team arrives to equip your home with a new AC unit:

1. Initial Assessment of the Current AC Unit

The first thing we do before installing a new air conditioner is conduct an assessment of the current AC unit. We take into account some of the primary factors such as the condition of the existing ductwork, and the SEER rating of the current AC system, and assess the AC unit size. Doing so helps us plan to install a new central air conditioner unit or ductless split system.

2. Consultation and Personalized Recommendations for Your Cooling System

Once we have an assessment of the current central AC in hand, we then present you with the best options for installing a new AC unit. At this time, we will help you decide on selecting a new HVAC system that would fit your installation cost budget.

During this time, we may advise you if your existing ductwork needs to be replaced or repaired. This will help you get the most out of the higher SEER rating that you will likely get with your new central AC.

3. Scheduling and Preparations for the Air Conditioner Replacement

After the consultation and selection of the new cooling system, you will schedule a time for the replacement service. The technician you work with may ask you to remove any debris or items around the current AC system before they arrive for the installation.

4. Removal of the Old AC Unit

When it is time to remove the old AC unit, your technician will turn off the power at the circuit breaker and disconnect it. They will turn off any heat pumps, disconnect the air handlers, and remove the refrigerant fluid.

5. Installation of the New AC Unit

The technician will then install the AC system according to the instructions of the manufacturer and the load calculation determined during the first step of the process. This is the main work of installing the air conditioner in the home.

6. Testing & Calibration

After the air conditioner is installed, our team will test and calibrate the new unit to ensure that it is giving off enough cool air and is operating at optimal energy efficiency levels. This will help us understand if the new unit was installed appropriately and in a way that would consume less energy during its operation.

7. Clean Up the Work Area

Because we respect your home and space, we will make sure that the area around your newly installed central air conditioner or ductless split system is thoroughly cleaned. After this, you will also receive warranty information and final recommendations for caring for your AC unit.

The best part of this entire process is that it is all handled by our expert team of technicians who will install the central air conditioning system for you!

Consider maximizing the cooling power and the energy efficiency of your central air unit by implementing a programmable thermostat in your home.

Signs of an Aging Air Conditioner in Dallas, TX

Whether you have a central air conditioner or a ductless split system, you can watch out for several signs of age when deciding to invest in a new cooling system. Check out the most common signs of an older AC unit that needs replacement below:

High Energy Bills

When you begin to notice increasingly high energy bills, you may have an AC unit that is functioning at lower energy efficiency. This is a common problem we observe among older units and typically, the only way to lower those energy costs is to replace the current HVAC system.

Energy efficiency is also dictated by elements such as the AC unit size, whether there are cracks in the existing ductwork, a leaky air handler, or some other malfunction.

A Lack of Cool Air

Poor airflow will occur in an older AC unit as it decreases in performance and develops various repair issues. These issues are commonly found in air handlers, refrigerant lines, drain lines, and other elements of the current system.

Poor Indoor Air Quality

Your HVAC system is integral to the air quality in your home. Older units become overwhelmed with dirt, and debris, and their ability to filter out pollutants and allergens.

You may also find your home more humid or stuffy, which means that the current HVAC system does not operate efficiently enough to balance out the moisture levels in the home.

Once the existing unit is replaced with a new system, its advanced technology will quickly improve the air you breathe inside the house. The air conditioner installation technician will take the time to inspect the existing ductwork and other primary factors, such as the air filters, to see if they also contribute to poor air.

High Repair Cost

Nobody likes to have to deal with excessive HVAC system repairs, and they certainly do not like to pay high repair costs. If you’re finding that you constantly have to call an air conditioner repair tech, it may be more cost-effective to pay for a new AC unit rather than repair the existing one.

Age of the Unit

Both central air conditioning units and ductless systems are designed to last about 15 to 20 years in the home. If your current unit is approaching its 15th year, you can use it for a few more years before shopping for a new system. We recommend consulting your local HVAC professionals to advise on how long your current system will last.

FAQ: Replacing Your Central AC Unit

Everyone has questions about replacing central air conditioners. We gathered some of the most common questions that are asked about this service and answered them below.

How many hours does it take to replace an AC unit?

Installation technicians work at variable speeds to replace a central AC. Overall, the process takes between 4 and 8 hours, depending on the size of the unit and other factors such as accessibility and the weather outside.

What is the best time of year to replace an AC?

The best time to replace an AC unit in Dallas is in the spring, which offers mild temperatures and better weather conditions for the AC installation to take place. Many HVAC companies also find that fall is a popular time for replacing an existing unit as the summer temperatures start to wind down.

However, you can trust that we are available to get the job done year-round as we work to serve our customers when it is most suitable for them!

Can I just replace my AC unit?

Many people want to sidestep the replacement cost of their AC unit and do the installation work themselves. We do not recommend doing this as AC installation requires training and expertise that only a licensed AC tech can offer. Plus, most state and local ordinances make DIY installations of ACs illegal.

What are British thermal units?

British thermal units measure the energy required to raise the temperature by one pound or by one degree Fahrenheit. This measurement is used to measure the cooling capacity of cooling and heating systems.
