Everything You Need to Know about New AC Installation
Upgrades are an important part of homeownership. The house that you bought five, ten, or even fifteen years ago always needs little updates.
One of the most common home upgrades we see is a new AC system.
It doesn’t have to be complicated. It can get handled with plenty of time to focus again on your family, enjoying the cool and comfortable home you deserve.
Installing the Right Air Conditioner Is a Process
It cannot be stressed enough: companies that want to be part of a community for a long time will go out of their way to provide exceptional customer service.
Each quote should reflect a realistic time to get the job done. A professional company knows it’s going to take more than a few hours. Two days is more than enough time to get it done.
Getting multiple quotes is better than saying yes to the first deal that sounds good.
That’s a great way to potentially end up working with a company that isn’t going to take care of you with the level of service you deserve.
The representatives may be on commission, but the mission is still clear: they want to give you the best AC system for your needs.
Anything less just doesn’t make sense. Being able to get all your questions answered in a no-pressure format makes sense to get the job started the right way.
More Points to Ponder Within AC System Selection
Will there be other questions you have during the selection process? Absolutely! No guide online could cover everything.
But this is a great way to make sure that you have a great starting place that will get your new AC unit installed properly:
- We only have one planet, so it’s important to make sure that the systems we install are energy efficient.
- The SEER Index measures the overall performance of an air conditioner, and performance is quite important to the overall life of the system.
- A big house needs a bigger system than a small house. The size of your house is an important part of the picture. Don't be afraid to get a larger system to support your home properly.
- BTU (British Thermal Unit) is a measure of power. Every system needs power, but the HVAC system keeping you cool in the hottest part of July (and beyond) definitely needs plenty of juice.
Never feel unable to ask questions or get help. It's part of their job to put you at ease with the process.
They want to feel like they're providing value and satisfaction for you to tell others about their service.
Potential Obstacles to the Cooled House of Your Dreams
If the goal is comfort, then we should do all we can to keep things running smoothly.
A new AC installation offers some comfort, but not unless you pay attention to the little details. Here's what you need to know:
A good company takes the time to measure everything. Trying just to order the system online won't make any sense. It is advisable to consult a local company.
Do not overlook the importance of performing a load calculation at the beginning. It's the best way to make sure you're getting the right size unit for your home.
Good maintenance absolutely pays off. Don’t skip the little things; it brings you closer to the major repairs in record time.
Insulated houses keep the air in its proper place. Poor insulation leads to air loss that costs you dearly; why settle for that?
The best thing to do is make sure you follow the process. Experts have done it thousands of times and understand all of the potential issues that come up during the installation phase.
They can also perform the right tests to ensure that they have everything installed the right way the first time.
Quality Air Conditioning Installation Makes the Difference
The difference between professional installation and do-it-yourself installation is like swimming in a pool and swimming in a mighty, raging river.
If you don’t know what you’re doing, you could truly be in trouble.
Trying to come up with a major upgrade like a new air conditioner on your own doesn't make any sense. It’s sticking yourself right in the middle of that river without any preparation.
You want to make sure you have professional support on your side for whatever happens.
Each installation is unique, and the professionals have years of experience in meeting the challenges that arise.
Make your home a breeze with quality air conditioning installation and maintenance.
