I recently witnessed and experienced my very first heating and air conditioning replacement installation.
You see I just moved into a new house that I bought, and the central air conditioning and heating system that came with the place was old and on its last years.
So I wanted to just replace it right away rather than start dealing with all kinds of heating and air conditioning repair bills. Let me tell you that I had no idea that the removal of an old central heating and air conditioning system and the installation of a brand new and very modern central heating and air conditioning system was a near all day affair! I had thought that the whole process would have taken about four and a half hours tops. But I was totally wrong. It was a full 8 hour work day. No wonder they had to start super early in the morning. I have to tell you though that watching them break down and remove the old air handler, put the new one in and move everything like movers was very interesting! I got a real education on heating and cooling installation this day let me tell you. I almost feel like I kind of went to one day of heat and a/c certification school. It was that educational for me! Not that I would ever be able to install or remove a central heating and air conditioning system unit myself, but I do know the general basics. I asked some questions as they were working as well.
