What a Professional Does During an AC Installation

Is it really worth it to schedule an AC installation in Alexandria, VA with a professional technician? The short answer is yes!

The installation of your next air conditioner is going to make or break the effectiveness, efficiency, and longevity of this system. A good installation can help you get the most from your air conditioner while a bad one will leave you disappointed over the next several years.

Rather than point out what an amateur might do wrong, we’re going to show you how valuable a professional AC installation is by telling you what an expert will do right.

The Difference That a Professional Air Conditioner Installation Makes

If you are wondering whether or not a professional technician is worth the price, you can expect that the investment will pay off. Here’s why a professional technician is the best person to install your AC.


A professional will understand how to properly size your air conditioner. Make no mistake this involves a pretty complicated equation that takes into account the square footage of your home, the number of windows and doors in the house, and other factors to determine how much power your AC needs to provide to cool the house. Getting this equation wrong can end up being very costly. The best choice you can make is to have your AC sized by a professional to ensure that it is done right.

Connection & Testing

Another differentiator of an expert technician is that they know how to connect your air conditioner correctly. If this is done wrong, it can undermine your comfort so you want to make sure that your air conditioner is connected right the first time. Our expert technicians can ensure that the air conditioner you have installed is hard-wired properly and connected to your ductwork correctly too.

And, not to worry, we won’t leave until we test the system out. We wouldn’t want to walk away without checking that everything was done right! It is part of the service to test the system to make sure that it cools your home effectively without a hassle.

Warranties & Rebates

Quality of service isn’t the only thing that you can enjoy with a professional technician. You’ll also enjoy the positive impact on your system costs.

For starters, a professional installation can put you on the right track to getting a system rebate, meaning you’ll get money back for the system you just bought. On top of this, a professional installation can be something that provides you with a valid warranty that will keep maintenance and repair costs minimal over the next several years. Warranties usually require expert installation and upkeep in order to prevent voiding them so a professional installation kicks things off right.
