The Ultimate Steps of Proficient Air Conditioning Installation

When it comes to air conditioning installations and installation of refrigerator cooler, there need to be proper steps which need to be taken care of for effective air conditioning installation, such as:

The first step towards air conditioning installation in either your homes or offices is to get hands-on the size of the unit; you are looking for. An air conditioner that is less in format will be less powerful to cool the home. On the other hand, an air conditioner which will be over the side will lead the air to be more humid. Not very comfortable right?  

The actual air conditioner air capacity measures in the form of tons. Tonnage refers to the exact amount of heat that a unit can remove at home in one hour. A one-ton air conditioner can expel around 12,000 BTU, and a three-ton system will have a capacity of 36,000 BTU to expel. 

The Requirements of the Installation

If in case the house previously never has had an air conditioner, the installation will be time-consuming as the setup is done which includes a new circuit breaker, new wiring run through the foundations, brand new ductwork, monitoring of the unit on the metal brackets. 

Choosing a Contractor

To have an effective cooling system and an installation which goes for an extended period, one must make sure that it has been installed correctly. We suggest not to take any chances. One must make sure that the contractor hired should have enough qualifications to maintain and install the equipment expertly. The HRAI (Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Institute) is known to be a non-profit national trade association of the contractors, manufacturers, wholesalers in the industry. They have an entire website that is dedicating to helping the users find a suitable contractor who is qualified enough to carry out technical tasks. 

Choosing the Right Wall

Generally, air conditioners, especially the split ACs, are installed on the wall. Hence the wall strength is an essential factor before installation. It is vital that the right wall is chosen, which holds enough strength and power to hold the weight of the AC. If in case the AC has been set up on a wall that is fragile and weak, then the air conditioner might fall and eventually damage and break. Hence, the choice of the wall is super important. 

Location of the System

To get adequate hands-on cooling, it is essential to do appropriate mounting of the indoor and outdoor systems at a site that is a little away from sunlight’s direct access. Generally, the outdoor orders should be placed at places that have enough proper space for installation. This eventually leads to avoidance of all the hindrance in terms of the following:

  • Heat
  • Condenser 


There should be an adequate amount of gap between the indoor and outdoor systems that play an important role when spoken about cooling. Proper distancing helps in reducing the lost cooling effect, which flows into the copper tubes between both the systems.
