So you’re ready for a new air conditioning installation, that’s great! A new air conditioning system means new and updated equipment with perks that maybe your old system didn’t have, and who doesn’t love an upgrade? But don’t forget, the way your air conditioning installation is done matters, you don’t want to have problems with your brand new system later on down the road.
Yes, we fully understand that you do not install the system yourself and may feel that you have little control over the process, but in reality, you have all the control!
Let’s talk a little about what you can do to ensure that your air conditioning installation goes smoothly.
Choosing the right HVAC professional is probably your most crucial step in this process.
When deciding on your professional, it’s extremely important that you do your research! Take the time to ask around, read reviews, and check for reputable accreditations. Once you have a couple of companies in mind, don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions. After all, ac units aren’t cheap, and you want the job done right the first time!
Ask about their licensing, how long they’ve been in business, what services they specialize in, and do they provide a warranty?- that last part’s important!
Unfortunately, this part of the process requires more research. But on the bright side, a well-informed customer is more likely to get the best result, so don’t skimp out on doing your homework!
Here are a couple of things to look for:
Another important part of choosing the right cooling equipment for your air conditioning installation is the size of the space it will be cooling.
If you choose a unit that is too small, it will only make your home just comfortable enough and will consume a lot of energy doing so. Whereas if you choose a system that is too large, your unit could wear down much faster due to short cycling.
Short cycling is when your air conditioning unit shuts down prematurely and then starts back up again to continue cooling shortly after.
To avoid such a problem, make sure that your HVAC technician takes the time to measure your home and determine the proper equipment needed to efficiently regulate the air space and achieve your desired level of comfort. Communication is important!
You’ve successfully made it through the air conditioning installation process. The hard part is officially over!
“Yea, Yea, now what!?” you may be asking yourself.
– Nothing major, just be sure to set up a maintenance plan with your HVAC professional. This will ensure that your equipment stays in it’s very best condition throughout all seasons.
With a maintenance plan, not only will your air conditioning system perform with ease, but it will also last you for years and years to come!
Oh yea- and save you money because you did your research to make all of the right choices! Great Job!
