How Long Does it Take to Replace an AC Unit?

This is a common question we hear all the time: How long does it take to install a new central air conditioning system? For anyone looking for a new AC or in need of an emergency repair and installation, read on to learn how the installation process works.

The first thing to do is have a technician inspect your home. This is necessary to determine whether your air ducts are in prime condition, whether your home’s insulation needs to be updated, and the square footage of your home. All of these factors have an influence on (a) which air conditioner you should purchase, and (b) how long it’s going to take to install it.

How Long Does it Take to Replace an AC Unit With Ductwork?

The lifespan of air ducts is about 10 to 15 years. After that timeframe, they tend to develop cracks, causing air to leak. As a result, you’re left with an air conditioner that doesn’t work efficiently and higher energy bills.

In addition, faulty ductwork often results in poor air quality inside your home. Not only does this mean your home will be more dusty than normal, but it could also affect your health and the health of your loved ones.

If you need to replace the duct work as well as your air conditioner, the entire process should take about two days.

How Does it Take to Just Replace the Central Air Conditioner? It Depends on the Location and Size of Your Home

If your home’s ductwork is in good condition, an HVAC technician could install a new air conditioner within a day. However, if you live in a high-rise, a condominium, a multi-family townhome, or any other type of structure that would make it difficult for a technician to install a condenser unit, the typically one-day project could take longer, depending on permits you may need, and the maneuvers the technicians will have to do within the available space to get the job done.

Also, keep in mind that installing an air conditioning system in a large home with multiple rooms is going to take significantly longer than installing one in a two-bedroom condo. So plan on four to eight hours, depending on your square footage.
