How Long Can an Air Conditioning Installation Company Take to Install Your HVAC Unit?

For homeowners who travel a lot or have a generally busy schedule, one of the most common questions when getting an HVAC installed is how long the installation can take. While different factors affect HVAC installation time, a reputed air conditioning installation company such as us at Wayne’s Heating and Air can install a new HVAC within a day. However, each HVAC installation scenario is different as the houses we install HVACs have different sizes, and there are many kinds of HVAC units. So naturally, the HVAC installation times are affected by factors that are out of our control. To give you a better understanding of how long it can take to install an HVAC at your property, we will explain the different factors that affect the installation time, and how to prepare for HVAC installation so read on.

Factors affecting the time air conditioning installation and repair companies can take for HVAC installation

The size of your property:

If you have a larger property, our HVAC  installation team will need more time to install the HVAC unit since more significant properties require more ductwork and, in some cases, multiple HVAC units to be installed. For example, we recommend installing at least 2 HVAC units if your house is bigger than 10,000 square feet in size. However, a smaller home can be adequately cooled using a single HVAC unit and less ductwork. So naturally, the installation time for the HVAC unit will be less if the house is small.

New installation vs replacement:

Another factor that affects HVAC installation duration is whether you are replacing an old unit or getting a new one installed. When installing a new HVAC unit in a property where there wasn’t one present before, we also have to install the ductwork and vent network which can take a few days to complete. On the other hand, if you are replacing an old central air conditioning with a new one, you are already going to have the ductwork installed, so the installation will take less time. However, in situations where the old ductwork is too worn out and has to be replaced, the duration of installation will increase in such cases.

The layout of your property:

Sometimes, the layout of your house can make it difficult for our HVAC team to access the installation location. For example, if your property has high roofs, installing the condenser and the duct network can be challenging, so the installation duration can increase significantly.
