New AC Installation

With many cooling options to choose from—central air, ductless mini-splits, heat pumps—finding the right AC for your home is crucial. The system will be at the forefront of your summer comfort, so it's important to understand your home's unique needs before you shop.

What To Consider Before Choosing A New AC

  • Size and Capacity: The size of the AC should be based on the size of the space it needs to cool. If you choose an AC too large or small for your home, it will struggle to run efficiently and cool your home evenly. Our team can perform a load calculation to determine the capacity needed to cool your home.
  • Energy Efficiency: Each air conditioner has a SEER rating to measure efficiency. Higher SEER ratings are more efficient and translate to lower monthly operating costs. Look for units with an ENERGY STAR® certification to indicate they meet federal standards for efficiency.
  • Type of AC System: Many homeowners opt for central air conditioners to cool their entire home. For older or smaller homes without existing ductwork, mini-splits are a flexible option. You will also want to consider available features like smart thermostat capability and zoning.
  • Budget: While the initial purchase and installation cost is a significant factor, also consider the long-term operating costs. More efficient units may have a higher upfront cost but can offer savings on energy bills over time. Look into any available rebates, incentives, or financing options that can help offset the initial investment in a high-efficiency air conditioning system.
  • Warranties: Pay attention to the warranty terms for the AC unit. A longer warranty period can provide peace of mind, but it's important to understand what is covered and what's required to keep the warranty valid.

Our team is here to help you select the perfect match to keep your home cool all through the Georgia summer. From understanding sizing requirements to following strict installation standards, you can rest assured that your new system is installed safely and carefully.

When To Replace Your AC

Like all HVAC systems, air conditioners have a limited lifespan. Dealing with an AC breakdown can be a pain, but replacing it can be a major upgrade for your home. Our team will guide you through the process from start to finish with as little disruption and downtime as possible. Whether you are weighing the pros and cons of repairing or need a new unit quickly, Ricky Heath has you covered.

Signs It's Time For A New Air Conditioner

  • If the AC is more than 10-15 years old, it is likely approaching the end of its life.
  • If you schedule frequent repairs, it may be more cost-effective to invest in a new unit.
  • If your monthly energy costs have gone up without an increase in usage.
  • If temperatures are uneven across rooms or do not match the thermostat reading.
  • If the air quality in your home has decreased, leading to dirt, dust and high humidity levels.
  • If the AC makes strange noises or frequently cycles on and off.

At Ricky Heath, we understand that AC breakdowns are stressful. We make the replacement process easy so you can get back to comfort faster.

AC Installation FAQs

How long will the installation of my new AC system take?

The installation time can vary depending on the complexity of your system and whether any modifications are needed for your home. Most standard installations are completed within a day. However, we will provide you with a more accurate timeline during our initial consultation and ensure minimal disruption to your daily routine.

Is it necessary to upgrade my thermostat when installing a new AC system?

While not always necessary, upgrading to a smart thermostat can enhance your new system's efficiency and provide greater control over your home's temperature. Smart thermostats learn your habits and adjust settings accordingly, potentially lowering your energy costs.

Protect Your New AC With Ongoing Maintenance

A new air conditioner is no small purchase. Annual maintenance and tune-ups from a professional are key to keeping it prepared for long, hot Georgia summers. We get it, though! You don't want to add another task to your home's upkeep. Our Elite Care Club makes it easy to care for your new AC.

Why is a maintenance plan important for a newly installed air conditioner? 

  • A brand-new AC runs at peak efficiency. Scheduled maintenance ensures it doesn't lose efficiency over the years.
  • Professional care leaves no stone unturned. Internal components are inspected and lubricated, filters are changed and thermostats are calibrated.
  • You don't want to deal with a breakdown. Maintenance catches small problems in the spring before they can interrupt your summer.
  • Maintaining your warranty is a must. Many manufacturers require professional, annual maintenance to keep coverage intact.
  • It's one thing less on your spring to-do list. Maintenance plans help you remember when to schedule service, season after season.
