Air Conditioning Installation & Replacement in Virginia, Maryland & Washington, DC
Summers in the DC metro area make a reliable air conditioner a necessity. Whether your old system is beyond repair or you’re looking to cool a new construction, the team at United Air Temp can help. We carry some of the world’s leading brands and can help you choose the best system for your desired comfort.
What Is Our AC Installation and Replacement Process?
The installation and replacement process starts by correctly calculating the required load for your home. To calculate the load, we factor in the type and depth of insulation, your home’s square footage, number of windows, window position, foliage cover, and other factors. This data helps us determine the cooling capacity you need to keep your home comfortable.
We’ll recommend a range of makes and models from the world’s leading manufacturers. When you choose your system, we’ll perform all the necessary installation steps, including identifying the ideal installation location, preparing the site, connecting the air conditioner, and testing the system for function.
The process is the same if we replace your air conditioner, with the added step of taking your old system away for proper disposal.
It’s our pleasure to help you calculate the best-sized system for your needs.
Contact United Air Temp, and our licensed and insured HVAC specialists will help you make the calculation.
We’ll also tell you more about the brands we recommend and the steps that go into every AC installation we perform in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC.
How Do I Know If I Need AC Replacement Over AC Repair?
Even the best-manufactured air conditioner won’t last forever. With proper care and maintenance, air conditioners typically provide 10 to 15 years of reliable operation. However, replacement is the better option when the cost of air conditioner repairs approaches or exceeds 50% of the replacement cost.
Similarly, if you have an older system nearing the end of its service life, it’s usually best to upgrade to a newer, more energy-efficient AC. After the replacement and installation of your air conditioner, you should be sure to get regular AC maintenance to ensure the longevity of your system.

Why Should I Hire a Professional To Install or Replace My Air Conditioner?
YouTube videos and blogs make everything from changing the air filter to heart surgery seem simple and easy. However, when it comes to AC installation and replacement, this is one task that’s not a DIY project. Because it involves potential exposure to electricity and coolant, there’s an inherent health risk to consider.
And if components are improperly handled or assembled, you can create a fire hazard or irreparably damage the system. Therefore, it isn’t worth the risk to save a few dollars. Plus, if you do the work yourself, you risk voiding any warranty coverage from the manufacturer or homeowners insurance coverage.
