Air Conditioning Installation and Replacement

Unfortunately, all HVAC equipment wears out eventually. When that time comes, it will be necessary to replace your old equipment —and your best option is an energy efficient Carrier system.  The dealers of CarrierOhio never take shortcuts when it comes to installations. They understand that the longevity of your system begins with a quality installation, and will ensure that the job is done correctly.

Carrier Factory Authorized Dealers will begin by assessing your home and taking accurate load calculations to determine the size and type of system your home will require.  Then they will make recommendations based on a wide variety of reliable Carrier products to help you find the perfect unit for your home and budget. They’ll also help you to assess your other options to enjoy enhanced indoor air quality (IAQ), making sure the conditions inside your home are always as comfortable as they can be.

Should I Repair or Replace My AC System?

On average, a well-maintained air conditioning unit will operate efficiently for 15 years or so before repairs will be required. As your unit ages, it will begin to need more frequent repairs—often more than once in the same year.  When that time comes, your best option is to replace the system. A new air conditioner will not only add more comfort to your home and lower your energy usage, but often will offset the cost of frequent repair calls.

Even if your AC unit is only 10 years old, you may save up to 40 percent on your energy costs with a newer system, according to the US Department of Energy (DOE). That’s a lot of savings over the course of the year! Additionally, some newer units could qualify for tax credits or additional rebates for energy savings. Your Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer can help you to determine which models qualify, and how you can maximize your savings.

What size AC do I need for my home?

Homeowners are often overwhelmed by the thought of replacing their HVAC system. Your Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer can help to make the entire process easy. In general terms, a 3-ton AC unit is the right choice for a 2,000 square-foot home —but your CarrierOhio dealer will perform the necessary calculations to determine the perfect fit.

The sizing of your unit is incredibly important. An air conditioner that is too large (oversized) for your home is not an advantage, despite the “hacks” you may have seen on social media —it will cycle too frequently, and fail to remove enough humidity, potentially leading to mold issues in your home. Likewise, an undersized model will prematurely wear out, and will fail to deliver the right amount of comfort to your home.

There are other factors to consider, as well.  Location of the unit, layout of your home and the size and design of your duct work are all critical components of the comfort equation. You can count on your Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer to make an accurate assessment of your home, and make the best recommendations possible.

How do I choose the right AC model?

Becoming a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer is not an easy task —it requires that every dealer’s technicians undergo rigorous technical training and testing to ensure an expert level of knowledge. What that means for you is that you can trust you’ll be receiving expert knowledge of the best equipment recommendations to meet the needs of your home.

For example: a smaller home can get by with a single-stage model, while a larger home will want either a two-stage or variable-speed model. Our dealers are knowledgeable about the different options available, and will help you find the perfect fit.

Air Conditioner Maintenance

To ensure that you get the most life possible out of your HVAC system, it’s a smart idea to perform routine preventative maintenance. Every spring, remember to schedule a tune-up of your home’s cooling system with your Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer. That way, your air conditioning equipment can run at peak performance all summer long.

If you have a newer system that is still under warranty, you should refer to the owner’s manual —it likely requires that regular maintenance be done on your system to keep the warranty valid.

There are quite a few tasks your Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer will perform when working on your AC system, among them:

  • Check the heat exchanger, blower, ignition, and other parts
  • Measure refrigerant levels for leakage
  • Clean evaporator coils, fins, and condensate drain
  • Check all the electrical connections
  • Lubricate the motor and other components

These tasks, when performed regularly, will keep your air conditioner clean and fully operational. It also allows your HVAC specialist to fix minor malfunctions before they become major issues —like an expensive part replacement.  It can also help prevent the uncomfortable situation of the unit failing in extreme heat.

Be sure to ask your Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer about the maintenance plans they have available. Dirt and neglect are the two biggest culprits for AC problems. Maintenance plans include tune-ups, repair discounts, priority service, friendly scheduling reminders, and other perks. Giving your equipment the maintenance it needs will ensure that you stay comfortable all summer long —no matter what weather Ohio decides to throw at us!
