The Benefits of a Patriot Air AC Unit Installation
Air Conditioning Installation
The process of installing a new air conditioner begins with a certified technician who is trained to determine the appropriate size of system for your home and equipped to carry out the installation itself.
Patriot Air employs certified professionals experienced in performing new installation and servicing homes all over Columbus, Ohio. They are experts in a full range of air conditioning installation services. There are several brands of HVAC units we recommend that are industry-leading systems manufactured by companies such as Lennox, Trane, and Tempstar, to give our customers access to the greatest variety of durable and long life expectancy air conditioner products.
Air conditioner installation begins with a detailed evaluation of your home by one of our licensed, bonded, and insured technicians. This free consultation allows us to assess the space in your home in order to estimate the cost of the new air conditioning system to be installed. Once this initial assessment is complete, we will schedule a day and time to complete the installation, at your convenience.
When installation day arrives, we deliver your brand new air conditioning system and prepare your home for the installation process. Generally, installation is a one-day project and can involve anywhere between 2-5 air conditioner installers on the job.
Following your new air conditioner system installation, we will see that the former air conditioner system is removed from your home and that the working space is restored to pre-installation condition. If you live in Columbus or the greater Central Ohio area and are interested in more information on our full range of air conditioning installation services, contact Patriot Air today.

The dog days of summer are for the dogs.
Stifling heat and humidity can make summers in Ohio miserable. That is why regular maintenance of your home’s HVAC system is critical. A past faulty ac system installation, damaged refrigerant lines, or an entirely outdated central air conditioner can produce inadequate cooling performance, poor indoor air quality and can eat away at your hard-earned cash in energy costs.
Do not let the dog days of summer bring you down. Rest comfortably in a house of cooling calmness, knowing that we use some of the industry’s top-rated high energy efficiency brands that save money on your utility bills.
The best ways to keep your AC unit performing its best during Ohio summers are:
Changing the filter in the air conditioning unit is the best way to ensure your ac unit performs at its peak and runs with optimal energy efficiency. This should be done every one to two months.
Make sure that the coils in your air conditioning unit are clean. Dirty coils can lead to lower efficiency. Make sure to check the coils at least once a year, ensure there are no leaves, grass clippings, or lint from the dryer vent. If the unit is outside, a recommended 2 ft (.06 meter) should surround the unit.
Take a stiff wire (a wire cleaner would work, but not from an arts and crafts store) and run it through the drainage pipe. A clogged pipe in the cooling system could make humidity rise resulting in mildew and mold, as well as unsightly discoloration of walls and carpet.
To help with energy costs make sure to open any vents in rooms you are going to occupy. Shut off the vents in any rooms that will not be used. This will help with energy bills and can lead to a longer-lasting cooling system.
We the People, Love Patriot Air
Fast & Efficient Service...
Patriot Air showed up on time, checked out my furnace, and within minutes of being there not only diagnosed the problem, but had the parts on the truck to fix it. Within thirty minutes, my furnace was blowing hot air again. Brian, the technician gave me tips on how to take better care of my furnace and even showed me how to change the air filter by myself. I couldn’t be happier and I’ve found my heating and cooling company for life. Thank you Patriot Air!
Patriot Air to the Rescue...
Our furnace went out while we were at work, and we came home to a freezing house. We have small children, so having it too cold in the house isn’t an option. We called around to a few places, and Patriot Air was the only HVAC company to return our call and immediately rushed a technician to our house. I can’t thank them enough for putting my family first and ensuring my kids had a warm home to sleep in. I tell everyone Patriot Air is the only HVAC company I’ll ever call again.
Knowledgeable & Professional...
I previously had an HVAC repair company come out to my house and attempt to repair my heat pump. They showed up late. The service technician spent most of the time on his phone, tracked mud into my house, and ultimately had no idea how to fix my problem. I called Patriot Air the next day, they showed up that same day, found and fixed the problem, and treated me and my house respectfully. I highly recommend Patriot Air for your heating and cooling needs.
Honest & Courteous...
Having a fixed income with unexpected expenses, like fixing the heating and cooling systems, is hard. Luckily for us, Patriot Air is a company that doesn’t nickel and dime you to death and is very fair-priced. They didn’t try to sell us anything we didn’t need and made sure we were comfortable with the price before they did any work. We were able to afford our repairs through their financing program. Now our central air is working wonderfully.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I choose what type of A/C unit to get?
There are a few factors that can determine what type of A/C unit is right for your home. Here are some general rules to follow:
Climate: Depending on the SEER (Seasonal Energy-Efficiency Rating) for the region in which you live, the minimum rating you’ll want for Ohio is 13. The higher the rating, the better the efficiency, and lower your energy costs.
Energy Efficiency: Buy an energy-efficient-rated air conditioner that will work smarter, not harder. The overall life of your ac unit will be extended if it isn’t working so hard to cool your house.
Size: When looking at a new air conditioning unit, you might notice that everything is rated in either BTUs (British Thermal Units) or Tons. In the early 1900s, when ice was still being used to cool buildings, the ice was stored until summer. When summer hit, the ice was placed in the basement where fans were used to push the cool air throughout the building. One pound of ice was capable of absorbing 144 BTUs of heat. So a 2,000 lb (Ton) block would cover 288,000 BTUs. When divided, that brings a total of 12,000 BTUs. That is the standard now for measurement of Ton when it comes to HVAC equipment.
When calling, we can help you understand what size of a new system you will need. Choose an HVAC professional, like Patriot Air, to help you navigate your options and choose the best furnace for your specific home.
Are there any financing options available?
We do offer financing options! There is no need to pull out that checkbook or credit card. We know this is one of the quintessential investments you’ll make for your home. So get service now and pay over time.
How much does it cost to install an air conditioning unit for a 1,620-square-foot home?
For a home that has 9-ft ceilings, an average insulation rating, and average sun exposure, a mid-range air conditioning unit might work. It is always best to call one of our certified, licensed HVAC unit technicians for a consultation to get the exact measurements.
What are some air conditioner replacement warning signs to look for?
You should expect to replace an adequately cared-for air conditioning system every 10-15 years. But even a younger hvac system can show serious warning signs. Look for: frequent breakdowns, high energy bills, and fluctuating humidity. Also, if the system takes longer than 3 hours to cool a 1600-square-foot home, or if the size of your house has changed, your air conditioning system will likely need to be replaced.
Can I install an air conditioner myself?
You must be certified to install and fill an air conditioning unit. Ohio State law provides for air conditioning units to be installed by trained and certified professionals only. This is due to the air conditioner’s high-pressure system and the use of refrigerant. We all want clean air to breathe and safety for our customers, so our trained technicians follow all required mandates.
How long does it take to install a new A/C unit?
Installing a new A/C unit will take anywhere from 4-8 hours, depending on your specific application. A larger home of approximately 10,000 square feet will require more time, work, and possibly more technicians, than a house of 2,000 square feet.
