Tips ‘n Tricks for AC Installation and Service

Nothing is better on a scorching hot day than sitting in an air-conditioned house and being thankful you are not outside. If you are someone who has to endure the extreme temperatures of summer without an air conditioner, then it is high time to call an AC Installation Service in Miami FL, so you can bask in cool indoor temperatures. If you think it is in your skill set to install an air conditioner yourself, this do-it-yourself article is for you.

The first step to air conditioner installment is having the right tools. The tools needed include:

A caulking gun and caulk

A tape measure and pencil

Foam insulation

Mounting hardware


A screwdriver

Your air conditioning unit

Next, measure the area that needs to be cooled, and make sure you have an air conditioner that is powerful enough. In general, 12,000 BUs will cool a five hundred square foot area.

The next step is to figure out exactly where the air conditioner needs to go. If you have a window unit, measure the window and the air conditioner to make sure it fits. Once all the measuring is finished, install the mounting brackets that came with your air conditioning unit. This can be done with a screwdriver and screws. At this point, remember to carefully read the manufacturer’s guidelines that came with the machine.

The manufacturer’s instructions will show you how to slide the air conditioner into the window space and attach the mounting brackets. The process from here out is even easier. Next, just lower the window to snugly fit the unit, and pull out the extensions so the seal is relatively airtight. The foam insulation then goes in the cracks between the top of the window and the unit itself. Attach a drainage pipe going outdoors next, and then caulk around the outside portion of the windows to keep the hot air out. Finally, plug in the air conditioner and feel the cool air hit your face.

Following these simple steps will allow you to enjoy the summer once again. However, not everyone is the do-it-yourself type. IF you need to, call an AC installation and service specialist from All Dade Air Conditioning in Cutler Bay, FL.
