When the temperature is heating up outside, you want to be sure to stay cool indoors. In order for this to happen, your air conditioner needs to be installed properly. For those who already have a properly functioning AC system, be sure to schedule AC service regularly. This ensures that it is capable of keeping your home comfortable. It is best to hire an HVAC contractor who has a great deal of experience in the A/C industry.
Many homeowners are tempted to make an air conditioner installation a DIY project. Considering how expensive AC equipment is and how expensive a breakdown can be, this is a bad idea. Also, a improperly installed system has a shorter lifespan. In order for your AC to keep your home cool in the summer, you need to hire a professional. When looking for the best HVAC contractor, it is best to hire someone who has years of experience in AC installation. There are many aspects to expect when installing a new cooling system in your home.
Choosing the best air conditioning installation company is just as important as the make and model of the system that you choose. It affects your A/C’s performance and its energy efficiency. Be sure to choose a licensed technician. Also, they should be NATE certified. After locating the best HVAC company for the job, a contractor is dispatched to your home.
When the tech first arrives at your home, they will first assess your home’s design. This will help them determine the best places to install the following components.
- The indoor cabinet
- The condenser
- The vents
- The register
- The air ducts
For a ductless system installation, the tech will find the right place to install the air handlers and the condenser in your home. In order for the tech to perform a Manual J HVAC load calculation, they will need to measure the total floor space of your home. In fact, in order to find the correct placement of your new cooling system, many factors are taken into consideration. Doing so will determine the best size of air conditioner to keep you home cool. Finally, the tech will give you a quote for the cost of the entire job. When the quote fits within your budget, the air conditioning system installation begins.
The first step for AC replacements is the removal of the old system. After the initial visit is complete, the cooling technician will come back to start removing the components of the old air conditioning unit. This would include removing the following:
- The compressor
- The evaporator
- The air ducts
Once the old system is removed, the installation of the new unit begins.
Air Conditioning Installation
The first thing that the technician will do is place the outdoor unit by securing it properly on the ground. Next, the contractor installs the indoor cabinet. Then, the HVAC contractor will install the electrical wires and the refrigerant tubing. Finally, the new air ducts are installed and the HVAC tech will plug the unit in for testing.
As soon as the installation is complete, the tech would turn on the AC system and test all of the components. They will make sure that the indoor and outdoor units are working. Next, they will measure the temperature in the room and compare it with the temperature setting on the thermostat. The two should be equal.
Once the system is installed and it has passed all the tests, the technician’s job is not over. Before going over the paperwork, they will explain exactly how your air conditioning system works. They will also go over signs to look for that will let you know that there is a problem. They also will discuss how to maintain your AC system to ensure that it works efficiently and effectively. Finally, the HVAC contractor will complete the paperwork. Now you can enjoy your cool, humidity free home.
