Need to Install a New AC? Here’s Why You Shouldn’t DIY


Have you finally purchased a new air conditioner and are looking for AC installation in Cary, NC

Selecting a new air conditioning system is a relatively easy task; it’s the AC installation that makes it somewhat tricky. However, even if you think you can do it yourself, you probably should let the professionals take the lead.

Depending on the size of your unit, you may have spent anywhere between $1,500 to $4,000 for your brand-new air conditioner. Wouldn’t it be a shame if all that money went to waste? Saving money is just one of the many reasons to hire a professional for the AC installation.

Let us walk you through the top four reasons you should never try to install an AC yourself:

1. For the Sake of Your Warranty

While many YouTube videos might have helped you understand how an AC installation works, you still wouldn’t know all the nitty-gritty details that you’d need. To know the ins and outs of an air conditioner requires proper training.

If you were to miss a step or mishandle the AC, you will end up losing the warranty on it (a warranty that you could benefit from in the future). That is why a professional, who knows even the tiniest details of an AC, should install it for you.

2. There Is a Safety Net

If you do something wrong and end up with an air conditioner that needs repairs at the end of the day, you will be to blame. On the other hand, if the professionals make a mistake, you can hold them accountable and ask for compensation.

3. The Cost of Making a Mistake

A study done by NIST found that if an AC is not installed correctly, it can increase electricity bills by almost 30%. In addition to this, if you make a mistake, your AC might end up needing multiple repairs that are increasingly expensive. Worst case scenario, you might end up with an AC that can’t be repaired, which leaves you with no comfort and a lot less cash.

4. Saves You Time and Money

More than anything else, the time that you will spend researching, learning about, and finally installing your AC could be better spent. It takes professionals years to perfect the art of a flawless AC installation. Instead of spending all that costly time, relax and do the things you enjoy.

With so much information available on the internet, we often think we can do everything ourselves. However, sometimes it’s best to put your faith in a professional who knows every nook and cranny of your air conditioner.
