Why Professional AC Installation Is Important
As we start coming out of the summer months, you may decide that it’s finally time to retire that old, noisy, inefficient AC unit and swap it for a newer model. To make sure your new AC installation goes smoothly we’ve highlighted some key reasons why you should always opt for a professional AC company to handle the installation.
Advice On AC Unit Selection
One major advantage of hiring a licensed AC technician from the get-go is that they will be able to help you choose an AC unit that is best suited to your home’s HVAC requirements. There are many AC brands on the market, and choosing a unit by yourself can be overwhelming. A licensed technician will inspect your home, focusing on its layout, size, and natural air distribution, and will recommend a unit that will be best suited to your family’s needs.
AC System Design Tailored To Your Home
Many homeowners don’t realize that, unlike older standard models, modern AC unit technology allows for the design of an AC system to suit a particular home’s needs while being optimized for cooling efficiency. This is another reason why hiring a professional AC installation company is so important, particularly if you are replacing both your central AC unit and ductwork.
A licensed technician will consider the layout of your home, noting which rooms receive the most sunlight and which rooms are large and take longer to cool, and will design your AC system and ductwork accordingly. This means your AC system will be installed for maximum energy efficiency, saving your family money on energy costs over your AC unit’s lifespan.
Longevity Of Your AC Unit
Having your AC unit professionally installed is the first step to ensuring that it works smoothly for years to come. AC units are increasingly complex, with many fragile components. Licensed technicians have years of experience and training, enabling them to install these parts with care so that the unit runs as efficiently as possible. Common problems associated with faulty AC unit installations include inefficient airflow, leaking ducts, electrical malfunction, and refrigerant underflow. All of these issues are expensive to fix but can be easily avoided by a professional AC installation.
Warranties And Insurance Claims
If you attempt to install your AC unit yourself – or hire an unlicensed ‘handyman’ to complete the job – you will violate the conditions of your AC unit’s warranty. This means that if anything goes wrong with your AC unit down the line, you won’t be able to make a claim for repairs or replacement under the manufacturer’s warranty and will have to pay for any repair costs yourself.
Another related factor to remember is when you hire a professional AC installation company, they’ll have their own insurance and satisfaction guarantees in place. If anything goes wrong with the installation or your unit malfunctions because of faulty installation, you may be able to claim from the company. You should also consider the many benefits that come with the professional installation of your AC unit.
Last, but certainly not least, are the safety considerations. Installing an AC unit involves the installation of electrical components and wiring, which can be dangerous if not connected properly. It also often involves working in a home’s attic or in other confined spaces. Licensed technicians know how to safely navigate these work conditions and ensure that the unit is safely installed. Technicians will also be able to finish off the job much more quickly than you would be able to, and with minimum disruption to your home.
