Trust the Pros to Properly Size Your Air Conditioner in Greenville, SC
Your new air conditioner needs to be the right size and have sufficient capacity to keep your home cool during the summer months. If the system is too small or too large for your home, it can cause a variety of problems, including insufficient cooling, short cycling, increased energy bills, and increased wear and tear on your system. To ensure that you have the right size AC installed, you’ll need to involve a professional who can perform what is called a “load calculation.” This evaluation takes a number of factors into consideration, like the size of your home, how many windows and doors you have, how well your air ducts are sealed, and much more. This calculation makes it clear what size air conditioner you need to buy for optimum performance and energy efficiency.
Our NATE-certified Greenville AC installation technicians can evaluate your home to determine the best size and type of system to provide the energy efficiency and reliable performance you expect.

Air Conditioning Replacement & Installation FAQs
Is it time to replace my air conditioner?
After about 10 years of use, you need to start thinking about replacing your air conditioner. The average life span of the modern air conditioner is about 15 years, and after 10 years the system will start losing efficiency. While you can extend this life span with proper maintenance, you will eventually need to replace the system. The Waldrop team can help you determine if it’s the right time for a new AC unit.
How much does air conditioner replacement cost?
The cost of air conditioner replacement depends on the model you choose and the labor costs charged for the job. The cost ranges between $2,800 and $7,770.
Can I install my new AC unit on my own?
Air conditioning units need to be installed by a trained professional. These systems are quite complicated and require the right knowledge to install. In addition, poor installation can put your home at risk of a fire. Working with a NATE-certified technician is the best option for AC installation.
How large of an air conditioner do I need?
Air conditioners need to be sized appropriately for your home and demand. This requires proper load calculation, which is something your HVAC technician will provide. A properly sized air conditioner will offer better efficiency and more even cooling throughout your home.
