With warmer weather right around the corner, many people are starting to think about replacing their old and outdated air conditioning unit with a new one. For most people, installing a new air conditioner is relatively easy. For others, a new air conditioner can't be installed without the help of a crane.
Cranes are powerful tools that can streamline the installation process if you are planning to invest in a new air conditioner this year.
One of the primary reasons you might need to rely on a crane to help install a new air conditioner is a rooftop location. Many properties don't have available space around the perimeter of the building to install the outdoor compressor unit necessary for an AC system to run properly. As a result, these compressors are installed on the rooftops of these properties instead. The only way to quickly and reliably get a heavy compressor onto the roof is with the use of a crane.
Another reason to consider the use of a crane when installing a new air conditioner is an obstructed installation location. You may find it difficult to access your property with a heavy air conditioning unit because of the orientation of surrounding buildings, the absence of an entry point near the installation location, or the presence of vehicles and signage that are in the way. A crane has a boom arm that can be extended to help lift your new compressor unit up and over any obstructions so that you can place the unit in the right location before installation.
Lifting an air conditioning unit alone is virtually impossible. If you can't find anyone to help you move your new air conditioner from the delivery truck to the installation location, then you may want to consider hiring the help of an experienced crane operator. They can easily move your air conditioner into place so that the unit is ready for your HVAC technician when he or she comes to complete the installation. A solo AC installation is possible, as long as you can rely on an experienced crane operator to handle the heavy lifting.
A crane might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about installing a new air conditioner unit, but having a crane available can make the installation process a lot easier. Consider contacting an air conditioner crane lifting service if it's time to install an AC system.
