After buying an air conditioning unit, the installation process is the next thing to prepare for. 

Installing an air conditioning unit requires hard work because of its intricacy and weight, so people opt to pay the price of hiring a service provider. But if you are curious about the installation process of split-type AC units in your home, here’s the step-by-step procedure:

  • Position the evaporator unit of the air conditioner in the desired wall inside your home
  • Mount the bracket and find a location for the compressor unit outside your home. Next, make a wall penetration for the refrigeration and water condensate lines.
  • After that, connect the refrigeration line using a spanner.
  • Connect the vacuum pump through the compressor and open the low-pressure gauge valve. 
  • Run the vacuum pull for 30 minutes to evacuate all the water vapor from the copper lines of the unit. 
  • Braze the mechanical connection with solder to guarantee zero leaks to the floor.
  • At this point, the valve for the low-pressure gauge must be closed.
  • Gas the valve to open the gauge fully. After it registers the pressure, you can now remove the vacuum pump.
  • Disconnect the manifold from the compressor unit since the refrigerant will spurt out. 
  • Power up the air conditioning unit to cool your home.
