How Long Does it Take to Install a New AC?

How Long It Takes to Install a New AC

When you are installing a new AC unit for your home, one of your first questions will be, "How long will it take?” Unfortunately, the answer is not usually clear-cut. The most accurate response would be, "It depends."

There are many factors that affect the amount of time needed for an air-conditioner installation. Factors include whether your home is equipped for an immediate installation or whether additional steps such as adding brackets or breakers are required. If these are not readily available, it will slow the installation process.

Other factors that come into play in determining the time needed for an AC installation include:

  • The size of your home – The square footage of your home will help determine how long your installation will take. Multiple units often are required at larger homes.
  • The type of AC being installed – If you are adding a centralized AC system, you will need to have ducts installed if your house does not have ductwork already. That will require a lot of additional time. Adding a ductless system or a window unit will go much faster, with the window unit being quickest to install.
  • Where the AC is being installed – If the AC unit is being installed in a condominium unit, it might take longer to install than having an AC installed in a bungalow. That is because special equipment is needed for some jobs and there some locations are difficult to reach, making installation more difficult and time-consuming.
