New split AC installation in Dubai

Split AC installation is not just about unboxing the unit and putting it up on the wall – a lot more goes into it. There is a fair amount of expertise required for ensuring a professional air conditioning installation that everyone is generally not aware of, mostly because it is not overtly visible. So if you are looking for a professional installation, the experience of a reputed AC installation company in Dubai comes handy. Download the free HomeGenie app for Android and iOS to find out more! 

HomeGenie’s new split AC installation is a fixed price service. This means that when you book a service with us, you provide some information based on which a fixed price is calculated and visible to you.  Once the booking is confirmed, our fully trained professionals will reach your home you at the requested date and time for the service fully equipped with the tools and material required for your split AC installation. They will consider the placement of the units, both indoor and outdoor, and also confirm the material available with the packaged unit. Care will be given to levels and balance, the connection of wires and piping,  and even clean-up of any debris or dust that may have got inside of the unit during installation. Overlooking any of these steps can mean underperformance leading to excessive repairs, or damage to your property in the future. 

Though AC installation does not usually come as a surprise, we do offer our same day service which will send a technician at your home before 6 PM that day, provided you booked between 8 AM and 12 PM. .

Q. What are some recommendations to take care of a split AC installed at home?

 A. ACs in Dubai and UAE work under extreme weather conditions and should be taken care of to avoid unplanned breakdowns. Below are some recommendations:

                        1. Ensure the internal AC filters are cleaned or changed regularly.

                       2. The indoor vents are kept clean and that they cover the required space and don't' necessarily focus on a particular area.

                       3. The AC cooling is not set to too low all the time as it put unnecessary pressure on the compressor.

                      4.The external unit of the AC should be kept well ventilated and clean so periodic checks and cleaning are needed.

                      5. The electrical connections on the external unit should be check periodically to avoid sudden breakdowns.

We strongly recommend a preventive AC service at least once a quarter.
