As a homeowner, your HVAC system plays a crucial role in keeping your home comfortable year-round. However, there may come a time when you need to replace your air conditioning unit. This can be a daunting task, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the process. In this blog, we’ll walk you through what to expect when your air conditioning unit is replaced to help you better understand the process.

Assessment of Your Home’s Cooling Needs

The first step in replacing your air conditioner is to assess your home’s cooling requirements. Meldon HVAC will assess the square footage, insulation, and overall layout of your home to determine the proper size and capacity of the new unit. This is critical because an oversized or undersized unit can result in inefficient cooling, high energy bills, and system failure.

Removal of the Old Unit

Once the new unit has been chosen, the old unit must be removed. The old unit will be disconnected from the ductwork, electrical system, and refrigerant lines. Meldon HVAC will make certain that all components of the old unit are disposed of properly in accordance with EPA regulations.

Installation of the New Unit

After removing the old unit, we will begin installing the new unit. Mounting the unit on a concrete pad outside your home, connecting it to the ductwork, and installing any necessary electrical components are all part of the process. If necessary, Meldon HVAC may also install a new thermostat or upgrade your ductwork.


Meldon HVAC will test the new unit when installation is finished to make sure it is operating properly. Running the appliance during this process allows us to look for any airflow, temperature control, or refrigerant level problems. To make sure the unit is operating at its best, our technician will also run additional tests.

Clean Up

We will clean up any debris or equipment left behind after the new unit has been installed and tested. Meldon HVAC will also take the time to leave your home in the same condition that we found it.

Instruction and Maintenance

We will give you instructions on how to operate and maintain your new air conditioner. This will include instructions on how to change air filters, schedule routine maintenance, and troubleshoot common problems. Meldon HVAC will also inform you of any warranties or service contracts that come with your new unit.

Replacing your air conditioning unit is a big job, but with Meldon HVAC on your side, it can be a simple and painless process.
