What To Expect: Air Conditioner Installation Process

air conditioner installationIt is not everyday that most property owners replace their air conditioning units. Even in a place that gets as warm as St. Louis in the summer, replacing an air conditioner should only happen roughly every 12 to 15 years. For some property owners who have never gone through installing a central air conditioning system, there can be a learning curve to understanding the process. Fortunately, our team of experts at Meyer Heating and Air has worked on countless HVAC systems throughout the St. Louis metro area including Arnold, St. Charles, Fenton, Ballwin, O’Fallon, Chesterfield, and Sappington. Our professionals have over 30 years of service, repair, and installation experience that we bring to each project, including any air conditioning service. Whether residential or commercial, our team is always ready to help, which is why we are sharing this blog post about the installation process. As a St. Louis- based air conditioner installer, we know that heating and cooling a space big or small is an investment for property owners and each heating and cooling system should be installed right the first time.

Working with the Meyer Heating and Air Team

The first step in improved comfort and a cool home in St. Louis is to choose the right team of professionals for the job. A team who brings you through the process every step of the way is a team you can trust. From the start, an air conditioner installation team should provide a quote after assessing the scope of the job. Not only that, but it is important that the installer is conscious of the investment of time and money through the duration of the process. At Meyer Heating and Air, our contractors provide written estimates to you, the property owner, before the work has started. Not only will you have a paper trail of our discoveries, but our team of professionals will provide you with honest solutions to get you and your home back up and running.

We provide the quality service that we would like to see in our own homes.

Choosing a New Air Conditioning Unit

When it is time to replace your aging air conditioner or install an HVAC system into your home for the very first time, choosing the replacement AC or new AC system is an important step in the process. For most systems, the average life is 12-15 years. When you think about that time frame, it is vital to have an energy efficient air conditioning system that will save you money in the long run. At Meyer Heating and Air, not only will we help point you to the best air conditioner for your home, but our staff will help you take full advantage of the latest in energy-efficient and sustainable technologies. Additionally, we offer free financing on any system over $1,500.

How to Prepare for a New Air Conditioner Installation

Knowing your budget and what you are looking for in an air conditioner is obviously an important step in the installation process, but there are also some key steps that may not be so obvious. Depending on whether your home is newly constructed or has some history can determine a lot about the installation process for your new air conditioner system. After identifying what is needed and providing an estimate, our team will be ready to begin work on the scheduled day. But before the crew arrives at your home, we encourage property owners to prepare the space to the best of their ability. Be part of the Meyer Heating and Air team by clearing any items from the identified work site. Another helpful suggestion is to have a plan for keeping your animals out of harm’s way during the installation process. On installation day, our crew will help prepare the designated area and are here to assist in tasks such as moving heavy furniture if necessary. We have traveled all over the St. Louis area installing air conditioners from St. Charles and O’Fallon to Fenton, Ballwin and Sappington.

New and Replacement AC Installation Services

Once a heat load analysis is performed to determine the correct size of the equipment and any necessary ductwork, our team will begin calculations to determine the variables such as the environment, size and location of windows, type of building materials as we as the general figures and orientations of the rooms. Our experts share over 30 years of experience installing, servicing and maintaining air conditioning units from Arnold to Fenton to neighborhoods in the greater St. Louis metropolitan region. We ensure our equipment works properly and strive to deliver the highest possible energy efficiency possible because we know that inefficiencies today can lead to paying more tomorrow.
