How Long Does Air Conditioner Installation Take?

You're busy; we respect that! You need that new air conditioner installed, but you don't exactly have all the time in the world to wait for that to happen. If you need a new air conditioner installed, you may want an estimate on how long that will take. The short answer from the trained technicians at JR Perkins Heating & Cooling is that it can vary depending on certain factors.

The first factor that can affect how long it will take is whether you have had an air conditioner before. If you are replacing your air conditioner, there is already infrastructure in place. Even if you are replacing an air conditioner, the technician still needs make sure you have the electrical system to support that new model, but in most cases, the home is already well set up. It will cut down dramatically on the time needed.

Another factor is the state of your duct work. You will likely already have usable ducts installed, but they may not be in the best shape. If your ducts need to be repaired, it adds onto the time, but is well worth it.

Finally, installation can also be dependent on where the air conditioner is installed. If you and your JR Perkins Heating & Cooling technician agree on an area, the more accessible it is, the faster the process will go. If it is hard to get your unit into or there are ten tons of toys or other obstructions there, it will add onto your installation time.

If you are looking to install a new air conditioning unit and want a time estimate that is adjusted for your specific circumstances, contact your chosen air conditioner technician. We can do an inspection to help you choose the right unit and give you a firm estimate on how long it will take for them to install it in your unique home.
