The specific details of an AC installation vary depending on the installation contractor and the type of AC system you plan to install. Nonetheless, the AC installation process often involves:

  • Site inspection
  • Unit selection
  • Physical unit installation
  • Electrical connections
  • Testing
  • Operational and maintenance instructions

Always consult the company you plan to hire to understand exactly what their installation service includes.

The short answer: it depends. Both central and ductless cooling systems have their pros and cons. What works best for one property may fall short of another property’s comfort needs.

For example, a central air conditioner works better than a ductless system for larger properties. Meanwhile, ductless systems suit smaller spaces or additions with no duct system but offer significant energy efficiency and quieter operation.

Ultimately, it depends on your property, comfort needs, lifestyle, budget, and installation time and complexity, among other things.

This is one of the more common FAQs we receive.

Your air conditioner may fail at its primary job of blowing cold air for various reasons. Common culprits include:

  • Leaking or low refrigerant
  • Evaporator coil issues
  • A clogged or dirty air filter
  • An incorrectly set thermostat
  • Blocked or clogged registers
  • An undersized AC unit
  • A blocked or clogged condenser coil
  • Leaking ductwork

Seek professional help to figure out the problem and fix it quickly.

When your heating system doesn’t supply heat despite the thermostat being on, you could be dealing with one or more scenarios, including:

  • A dirty filter
  • Thermostat wiring issues
  • Wrong thermostat setting
  • An issue with the thermostat battery
  • No gas supply
  • The heater is cut off from the power source
  • A dirty pilot ignitor

Unless you really know to fix a heater or furnace, call for professional help.

Low Freon levels force your mini-split system to strain harder than it should. Look out for the following symptoms of low refrigerant or Freon:

  • Leaking
  • Ice on or around the system
  • Performance issues

Letting your mini-split system run on low Freon levels could eventually damage it. Call your local HVAC technician if you suspect your mini-split has low refrigerant.
