Air Conditioning Replacement and Installation: FAQs

What Size AC System Do I Need for My Home?

When choosing a new air conditioning system, finding the right size depends on various factors such as the size of your home, the number of windows and doors, and insulation. It’s important to find the right fit, as an AC system that is too small won't cool your home properly, while an oversized system will waste energy and increase your electricity bills.

To determine the right size, you can consult an HVAC professional who will conduct a load calculation to assess your home's cooling needs. At Polestar, our team of experienced technicians can help you make an informed decision by providing you with an accurate assessment of your home's cooling requirements.

The climate also has an impact on the size of the air conditioner that will be best for your home. As an AC installation company local to Kansas City, we understand the area well and we'll be able to recommend a properly sized AC unit that is energy-efficient, cost-effective, and suits your specific needs.

How Long Does an AC Installation Take?

The time it takes to install an air conditioner depends on several factors, including the complexity of the installation, the size of the system, and the type of property, as well as whether we’re installing a new unit or replacing an existing one. A simple installation for a small residential property can take around four to six hours, while a more complex installation for a large commercial property may take several days.

We know that time is of the essence when it comes to your comfort, and we strive to complete all installations as efficiently and promptly as possible. Our experienced HVAC technicians in Kansas City are trained to handle all types of replacements and installations quickly and professionally, ensuring that your new AC unit is up and running in no time.

What is the Average Lifespan of an AC Unit?

The average lifespan of an AC unit depends on various factors such as the make and model, maintenance, usage, and climate. On average, a well-maintained AC unit can last between 10 to 15 years. However, factors such as improper installation, lack of maintenance, and heavy usage can significantly reduce its lifespan.

To ensure that your AC unit lasts as long as possible, it's important to schedule annual service with a professional HVAC technician. At Polestar, when you join our Polestar Family Membership, AC service is easy and affordable, saving you money and keeping your air conditioner running at its best for many years to come.

Should I Repair or Replace My AC Unit?

If your AC unit is more than 10 to 15 years old, requires frequent repairs, or has low energy efficiency, it may be more cost-effective to replace it with a new, energy-efficient model.

However, if your unit is relatively new, has a minor issue, or is still under warranty, repairing it may be a better option.

When you call Polestar, one of our AC service technicians can assess your unit's condition and help you make an informed decision on whether it can be repaired or if you need a replacement. Our goal is to provide you with the most cost-effective and energy-efficient solution that meets your specific needs.

Can I Install an AC Unit Myself?

While it may be tempting to replace or install an AC unit yourself, it is not recommended. AC units require specialized knowledge and tools to install properly, and improper air conditioner installation can lead to a host of issues, including reduced efficiency, increased energy bills, and even safety hazards.

Additionally, installing an AC unit yourself can void its warranty, leaving you with no recourse if something goes wrong. To ensure that your AC unit is installed safely and efficiently, it's best to leave the job to a licensed and experienced HVAC technician. At Polestar, we have a team of experienced AC installers in the Kansas City area who can install your unit quickly and professionally, ensuring optimal performance and energy efficiency.

We had all new heating and air conditioning units installed. The men showed up on schedule, were very knowledgeable, installed them in a very timely manner, explained to us how they worked, answered all our questions, and were very polite. I would definitely recommended Polestar for this need.

Improve Your Indoor Air Quality with a New Air Conditioner

A high-quality air conditioner can do more than just keep your home cool and comfortable. It can also help you fight dangerous pollutants and improve your indoor air quality. At Polestar, our cooling system technicians can help you choose a unit that will not only be reliable and energy efficient but also ensure clean, healthy air.

Many new air conditioning systems have high-tech filters to help reduce the circulation of harmful pollutants like dust, allergens, and other particles that can be dangerous to your health. By ensuring that the air you breathe is clean and healthy, you can reduce the risk of respiratory issues and allergies.

If you’re interested in learning more about how a new AC unit installation or replacement can help improve the air quality in your home, call the Kansas City AC installers at Polestar!
