Tips To Keep In Mind For Air Conditioning Installation Day


Are you about to upgrade your air conditioning to an HVAC system featuring central air? If so, it's very important that you do your homework prior to the beginning of installation in order to make sure everything goes smoothly. Make a mistake during the initial installation, and you could be getting a less than 100 percent efficient air conditioner from the get-go. Here are some important tips to keep in mind if you want to ensure that your new central air system is installed properly and is ready to operate at max efficiency from day one.

Don't Rush the Air Duct Process

The obvious advantage of central air compared to a window air conditioner is that you will be able to get cooled air throughout your entire home. This might not be the case if you are not careful with the installation and sealing of your air duct system. Even a small leak somewhere could cause the entire system to run much less efficiently than it otherwise should. If you don't catch this leak for months or years, you could end up paying more money than you should in energy costs each and every month as your system strains to work against the leak. Carefully inspect each section of the air ducts before moving forward.

Make Sure You Have the Proper Permits If Needed

Installing a central air unit in your home usually isn't a big deal as far as the local government is concerned. This may not be the case though if you are installing a brand new HVAC system with central air that is designed to cool a large commercial building. You may need special permits before the work can even begin or before the new system can be put into operation. The additional comfort your new system will provide won't be much of a benefit to you if it arrives alongside a large fine from the local government or regulatory authorities.

Stick with a Licensed Professional

It can be hard for a novice to pull off a perfect AC system installation. For best results, it is to your benefit to hire a professional who has done this before. Furthermore, you should hire a licensed contractor and not just some random handyman off the street. A licensed AC specialist will ensure your new system is installed properly across the board and will be operating at maximum efficiency from the moment you first turn it on.
