    Installation Day

    Here’s What You Can Expect:

    The Poulin Cooling installation crew arrives in the morning.


    Your old A/C unit is removed.


    The new A/C condenser (outside unit) is installed while the indoor unit (air handler) is getting prepped.


    The new A/C air handler (indoor unit) is installed and refrigerant is put into the new system or adjusted. (Most systems are pre-charged with refrigerant and we have to adjust the amount to make it run efficiently.)


    The new A/C system is tested for operation.


    The Poulin Cooling installation crew cleans up and removes the old equipment from your home.


    You pay the remaining 50% of the new A/C unit installation cost before the installation crew leaves.

    Here are some frequently asked questions about getting an A/C installed
    How much does it cost to install AC?

    The total cost of installing an AC depends on size, efficiency, upgrades and what it takes to install it.

    One of the biggest factors in the total cost of installing AC is based on something called SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). A 2 ton 14 SEER could be $5,000 to $6,000. A 4 ton 16 SEER could be $5,700 $9,400. A 3 ton 17 SEER could $9,700 to $14,600.

    How long does it take to install a new AC?

    The time required to install an AC can range dramatically based on the complexity of machine and its requirements.

    For example:

    A simple unit could take 4 hrs. A standard unit 8-10 hrs. A complex unit 10-16. A new unit and all its ducting could take 4 guys 5 days. This includes removing the old unit as well as installing the new one so that it’s running and good to go.

    Does a new AC unit add value to a house?

    Installing a new HVAC system is second on the National Association of Realtors’ list of top home projects that add value to a house. Additionally they report that replacing your system recoups about 85% of the cost when you sell your home, a great return compared to other home projects.

    How long do air conditioners last?

    How long your AC system lasts depends on several factors such as how often you use it and how well you maintain your system with regular tune-ups and repairs. On average, the lifespan of a well-maintained HVAC system is 10 to 15 years.

    Courteous, super professional and knowledgeable. On time, high quality. Love the whole crew and owner of this place. We remodeled a home and needed repairs. I will never use another company again. These guys are fabulous. Even found us bathroom fans that are actually quiet and aesthetic. Totally went with our decor. Came out on Christmas Eve one time to install anew thermostat and stayed while we downloaded the app and made sure we knew how to use it.
