When you need a new air conditioner in your home, it may be tempting to install it yourself. However, it’s best to hire a professional. Here are four reasons why you should ask a pro to handle your AC installation in Durham, NC.


There are many safety procedures that professional technicians must know about before they install an air conditioner. Unless you’re properly licensed, you’re probably not aware of all the electrical details involved in an installation. This means you could risk injuring yourself and your household members.

Remember that installing an air conditioner involves intense heat, metal pipes and combustible fuel. The unit is then directly wired to your home’s electrical system. If you don’t cut the correct wires, you could risk starting a fire on your property.


Having professionals install your air conditioner will keep the warranty on your AC valid for a certain period. This is important to have as you may need repairs done on your air conditioner during that time. A warranty can save you a ton of money on repairs.

Specialized Equipment

One of the key elements a professional will bring to the job is specialized equipment. For example, at A&E Heating and Air Conditioning, we use home automation with Nexia. This lets you program your AC when you’re away from home.

You can turn the unit on 30 minutes before you arrive and turn it off when you know you’ll be away from home for a while. The beauty of home automation is that you can program your AC from just about anywhere.
