When it’s time for a new HVAC install, knowing what you should avoid or seek out is important. Here are some AC installation do’s and don’ts to help you out as you begin looking for a new system.
Do: Get A Correctly Sized Unit
One of the most important things you should ensure when buying an AC system is that it’s the right size. A small AC won’t adequately cool your home, and an oversized unit will cost more and cause issues in the future. A reputable AC company will engineer the proper size AC unit for your needs.
Don’t: Ignore The Warranty
Knowing what your system’s warranty says can save you money on future repairs or problems after installation, so make sure you take the warranty under consideration before buying your new system. This will help you secure a warranty with proper coverage.
Do: Test Out Your New System
Although it may seem like your brand new AC system should work perfectly right after installation, sometimes things don’t go as planned. Your technician should test the system automatically, but make sure they do before they leave – and make sure they show you how to use it.
Don’t: Neglect Maintenance
Once you have your new system, the best way to keep it running like new is to keep up with maintenance. Don’t ignore AC repairs, and don’t forget to have it serviced twice a year.
Don’t: Try To Do It Yourself
While it may seem tempting to save money by installing your new HVAC system yourself, even the savviest DIYer is likely to make major mistakes. Make sure the job is done right the first time by including a contractor in your budget.
Do: Choose A Trustworthy Contractor
When choosing an AC contractor, it’s important to make sure you choose someone you can trust to do quality work at a fair price. Make sure your contractor is reputable by looking at reviews and considering multiple AC companies before settling on one.
