The Evaluation Process

The first step in our AC installation service is a comprehensive two-hour evaluation of your property. During this assessment, our skilled technicians will perform heat load calculations, take measurements, and evaluate the sizing of your potential AC system. They will also examine your existing equipment and HVAC ductwork and conduct a thermal evaluation of your system to ensure optimal performance and efficiency.

The Entire Process

Our AC installation process is designed to be seamless and stress-free for our customers. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of what you can expect when you work with Poulin Cooling:

  • Assessment: We assess your current air conditioning unit and determine if it needs to be replaced. If a replacement is necessary, they will discuss the various options with you.
  • Quote: Once you have selected the A/C unit that meets your needs and budget, we will provide you with a detailed quote outlining the cost of the unit and the installation service.
  • Deposit: You will be asked to pay a 50% deposit to begin the ordering process.
  • Permitting: Poulin Cooling will handle the necessary permitting with the city or county where the new A/C unit will be installed.
  • Scheduling: Our team will schedule a convenient installation date for your new A/C unit.
  • Ordering: We will order your new A/C unit equipment and parts from our supplier.
  • Installation: Our technicians will arrive at your property to install your new A/C unit. They will work efficiently to ensure minimal disruption and leave your property clean and tidy.

Choosing the Right AC System

Once the evaluation is complete, we present carefully selected options, categorized from good to best. This tiered approach enables you to make an informed decision based on your property’s needs and budget. We work with various reputable brands, ensuring you receive a high-quality, long-lasting AC system. Our team is always available to answer any questions you may have throughout the decision-making process.

Installation Timeline

The time required to install an AC system can vary significantly based on the complexity of the unit and its requirements. For example:

  • A simple unit could take 4 hours.
  • A standard unit could take 8-10 hours.
  • A complex unit could take 10-16 hours.
  • Installing a new unit and all its ductwork could take a team of four technicians up to five days.

These timeframes include the removal of your old unit and the installation of your new one, ensuring that it is fully operational and efficient.

AC System Lifespan
