A Clear Plan for AC Installation
It’s a bad idea to go in blind when you’re installing an AC system. That’s why your HVAC professional will plan out the installation as much as possible. They should communicate that planning with you.
They may need to visit your house to take exact measurements of installation areas and equipment. They should anticipate and consult with you about any house alterations they need to make outside of the AC unit, such as changing your electrical wiring. They should have a project timeline based on the installation’s complexity.
Of course, unanticipated issues can pop up for even the best-trained and best-prepared installation team. But proper planning will still minimize homelife disruption and unanticipated costs.
No one’s going to list getting an HVAC installation as one of their favorite things. You’re probably picturing an endless stream of noise, dust, and outsiders tromping through your house. If you weren’t worried about those scorching Arizona summers coming up, you’d probably skip it altogether.
But good HVAC professionals take many steps to minimize disruption and worry during the installation process. Small yet highly trained crews of two or three workers help installations run smoothly. These workers use their installation plan to minimize noise, dirt, and delay.
Your installation may take only half a day or up to three days, depending on its complexity. Your HVAC team can limit work to certain hours of the day. They can use drop tarps and disposable foot coverings to keep your house clean.
You may have to take some measures ahead of time to ensure the installation goes smoothly. Remove any toys or clutter from the installation era. You may have to move furniture to fully clear the needed space. Pets should be kept away from the installation for their safety.
Guidance and Follow-Up
So your new ac system is ready to go. What now?
Your HVAC professional shouldn’t leave you hanging. After the installation is complete, they’ll test that it’s functioning properly. They should also show you how to use your new HVAC system and explain any significant features.
It’s always the goal to have a new AC installation work flawlessly from the moment you switch it on. However, that’s not always the reality.
Some HVAC installers schedule follow-up phone calls to see how the new installation is working out. Whether they schedule a specific follow-up or not, your HVAC professional should be ready to address any questions or issues that arise after your installation.
