Can I use the word "put" and "added" beside the word "installed" in the sentence

In these two days, I have installed a new air conditioner in my home.

I asked one of my friend that have a better English than me, she said it is wrong to use those two words because what I want say is about machinery. So anyone kind enough to tell me if it is really wrong to use those two words in this sentence?

  • 'Added a new ...' implies (rather than demands) that there are now at least two. – Edwin Ashworth Aug 5 '17 at 12:56

  • Lili, ELU is not intended for people just learning the language. I actually gave some advice in a 'comment' rather than just close-voting. Do you think I'll bother next time? – Edwin Ashworth Aug 5 '17 at 13:53
  • Really, I dont understand why question should be put on hold😥 I'm asking whether I can use the two words in the sentences or not beside the word "installed". Okay, fine. From your first answer, that means I can use the word "added" if I already have one air condioner when I install a new one. What about the word "put"??? – Lili Aug 5 '17 at 14:16
