What to Expect From a Professional HVAC System Installation?
Deciding Between Replacement and Repairs
According to the Department of Energy, about three million heating and cooling systems are replaced annually in the United States. During your consultation, your HVAC technician will inspect your system and determine whether it can be repaired or replaced. Factors such as age, efficiency, and condition are all taken into account when reaching this decision. In addition, if you have a budget for the project, your technician can also help you determine a solution that fits within it.
Checking for Permits and Inspections
HVAC technicians are knowledgeable in local ordinances and building codes. If your area requires permits for HVAC installation, the technician will be able to advise you on which permits you need and how to obtain them. Additionally, your technician can help guide you through the inspections that may be required by your local government.
Preparing the Site
Before installation begins, the HVAC company will make sure that everything is ready for a successful installation. This includes clearing any debris and obstacles, cleaning the surface area, moving furniture if necessary, and making sure the power is turned off. During this step, your installer will also measure existing ductwork for any modifications.
Testing the System
Once the installation is complete, final tests will be performed to make sure that your system is functioning properly. This includes checking airflow, temperature, pressure, and operational controls. Your technician may even use special equipment to ensure that the system is meeting efficiency standards.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Your HVAC technician will clean up any debris and review proper maintenance procedures with you before leaving. This can include checking air filters often, keeping vents clear of obstructions, and regularly inspecting components for corrosion or leaks. They may also set up a preventive maintenance plan to help ensure that your system is running efficiently.
