Installation for Central Air Conditioners in Fort Myers

How to install a Central Air Conditioner?

  • The first step one needs to take is pulling permits for the type of work being performed. The contractor will obtain the permits needed.
  • Take apart and remove the existing air conditioner.
  • Install a new duct system or perform duct repairs
  • Prepare the installation site. Which would be setting a concrete pad to support the air conditioner.
  • Position the unit correctly. Install and secure it to the site.
  • If replacing your air handler, install the indoor unit. It is a smart idea to replace both indoor and outdoor units at the same time. (you may not need to replace the air handler when installing a new unit outdoor)
  • You would need to determine the appropriate size for refrigerant lines, drain piping, and electrical lines. Connect the indoor and outside unit.
  • Connect the thermostat to the central air conditioner.
  • Vacuum to remove contaminants from the refrigerant lines.
  • Perform an installation inspection to make sure the installation was done correctly.
