Top 10 Considerations in a New Air Conditioning Installation

When looking to get a new AC installed, here are the top 10 things to consider:

Size of the AC Unit

Ensure the unit is the right size for your space to effectively cool the area without wasting energy.

Energy Efficiency

Look for an AC unit with a high SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating to save on energy costs.

Type of AC Unit

Choose between central air conditioning, ductless mini-split systems, or portable units based on your needs and budget.

Maintenance requirements

Consider the maintenance needs of the AC unit and factor in the cost and frequency of servicing.


Check the condition of existing ductwork or consider installing ductless mini-split systems for spaces without ducts.


Check the warranty offered by the manufacturer and installer to ensure you’re covered in case of any issues.

Air Quality Features

Look for AC units with air purifiers or filters to improve indoor air quality.

Noise Level

Consider the noise level of the AC unit, especially if you plan to install it in a bedroom or living room.


Determine your budget for, including the cost of the unit, installation, and any additional features or services.

Zoning options

Explore zoning systems that allow for personalized temperature control in different areas of your home or building, maximizing comfort and energy efficiency.

HVAC Installation Guide 

In an HVAC system installation, several components are typically installed to ensure efficient heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. These components include:


A furnace is the central component of a heating system that generates heat by burning fuel (such as gas or oil) or using electricity.

Air Conditioner or Heat Pump

An air conditioner or heat pump provides cooling by removing heat from indoor air and transferring it outside during warmer months. In colder months, a heat pump can also provide heating by extracting heat from outdoor air and transferring it indoors.

Air Handler

The air handler is responsible for circulating conditioned air throughout the ductwork of the building. It contains components such as the blower motor, evaporator coil, and filter.


Ductwork distributes heated or cooled air from the HVAC system to different areas of the building. It consists of a network of metal, fiberglass, or flexible tubes that deliver air to individual rooms or zones.


The thermostat controls the HVAC system by monitoring indoor temperature and activating heating or cooling as needed. Modern thermostats may offer programmable or smart features for enhanced control and energy savings.


Ventilation System

A ventilation system ensures proper air exchange and circulation within the building, improving indoor air quality and preventing the buildup of pollutants, moisture, and odors.

Refrigerant Lines

Refrigerant lines connect the outdoor and indoor units of an air conditioning system or heat pump, allowing refrigerant to flow between them for the transfer of heat.

Condensate Drain

This component removes condensation produced by the cooling process, preventing moisture buildup and potential water damage.

Registers and Grilles

Registers and grilles are installed throughout the building to allow air to enter or exit the ductwork, facilitating airflow and temperature control in individual rooms.

Exhaust Fans

Exhaust fans remove stale air, odors, and moisture from bathrooms, kitchens, and other areas where ventilation is needed.

These components work together to provide efficient heating, cooling, and ventilation for homes, commercial buildings, and other spaces. Proper installation are essential to ensure the optimal performance and longevity of an HVAC system. Always use a professional installer, liek Christmas Air to install your system.
