AC Installation During the Summer
What’s not to love about summer? You get to spend time at the beach, go to barbecues, and lay around by the pool. Everybody’s living it up outside!
Part of what makes summer so enjoyable, though, is heading back home to a house with AC that makes it nice and cool. It’s hard to have summer fun when you come home to a house that’s hotter than it is outside.
If you can relate, you may want to consider AC installation during the summer. You don’t need to feel like it’s already too late. It’s better to have cool air for a part of the summer than none at all.
But what does an AC installation in the summer involve? That’s exactly what we’re going to cover in today’s article.
Let’s get going!
Time is of the essence! Part of summer is already in the past. It’s not too late to get your air conditioner installed. But, you want to get as much use out of it as you can.
That’s why you want to make sure you have your installation site ready to go before the technicians come out. Before they come to do your AC installation you’ll want to make sure the area where your condenser will be sitting is clear.
Remove any sort of debris or other obstacles. You’ll also want the technicians to have a clear path from the street to the installation site.
Weather Matters for AC Installation During the Summer
The weather is definitely a factor for AC installation during the summer. There’s no denying that. You may want to take a look at the 10-day forecast before scheduling your installation.
Obviously, if you have a system already that isn’t working, then get your new AC installed as soon as possible. But, when it’s not an emergency, some customers like to wait until the temperature drops a little. The cooler temperatures outside mean you’ll have a cooler home inside more quickly.
Also, keep in mind that summer is the busiest season for AC technicians. Once people feel the heat of summer they decide to get a new AC installed. People may also have an older system that just so happens to fail in the heat of summer. Regardless, it keeps AC technicians’ schedules pretty packed.
While the installation is taking place, you’re not going to have any cooling in your house. You may want to plan for this as well. Keep fans, cool towels, ice packs, or anything else handy that can cool you down.
If you have a pool, it will definitely come in handy on installation day. You can make that day a pool day to keep yourself and the family cool. It’s also a good idea to not use the stove or oven on installation day.
Using your kitchen appliances can really heat up the inside of your house. Maybe choose a summer menu of sandwiches and salads instead to keep everyone out of the kitchen.
Cool as a Cucumber
Ac installation during the summer doesn’t have to be as inconvenient as some people might make it out to be. If you plan ahead, limit how much you heat up your house, and figure out a way to stay cool, you’ll be just fine.
