Determining the Right HVAC Size

This is one of the most important steps when installing a new HVAC. That’s because choosing an undersized HVAC would lead to inadequate heating. Similarly, buying an oversized HVAC would lead to shorter run cycles which means your HVAC would turn on and off very frequently, leading to cold spots and, more importantly, hefty energy bills. If you are looking for an HVAC installation service company, feel free to get in touch with us at AVS Heating and Air Conditioning.

Best Time of The Year to Install a New HVAC

Another important factor to consider when installing a new HVAC is the best time of year to install one. Many people tend to wait for their HVACs to stop working completely before they install a new HVAC. However, that leads to a lot of inconveniences if the HVAC breaks down during the peak summer or winter season. As HVAC installation takes a couple of days, it is advisable to have a new HVAC installation during the off-peak season, like early spring or fall. The other advantage of having a new HVAC installed during the off-peak season is that the HVAC installation experts are easily available, and the HVAC installation cost is also not as high as that during the peak season.

Why Avoid DIY HVAC Installation

An HVAC is a complicated piece of equipment and so it is best to let an HVAC installation expert take care of the installation process. Here are some of the other reasons DIY HVAC installation might be a bad idea.

  • A DIY HVAC installation might void your warranty as one of the most common terms, and conditions that manufacturers propose is that all HVAC-related service are conducted by a licensed HVAC professional.
  • An HVAC is an electrical piece of equipment, and so there’s a risk of electrical shock involved when installing the HVAC. Also, as a DIYer, you might lack the specialized tools that are required for HVAC installation.
  • A DIY HVAC installation might lead to damage to the HVAC, which in turn might lead to costly repairs.

Hiring a Credible HVAC Installation Service Company

It goes without saying that hiring an HVAC installation expert is the best way to ensure proper HVAC installation. However, before you hire an HVAC installation expert, here are a few things that you must check.

  • Make sure the HVAC contractor has a valid license. This will help you ensure that the HVAC contractor has the required knowledge and is equipped with the latest tools required for carrying out the installation job.
  • Check if the HVAC contractor has the required insurance, such as General Liability Insurance and Worker’s Compensation Insurance. It is important because if the contractor doesn’t have the required insurance, you can land in legal trouble in case any worker gets injured on the job.
  • Last but most importantly, you must ensure that the HVAC installation service company that you hire has a good reputation. You can ask your neighbors for recommendations of good HVAC installation service providers in your area. You can also look online for the best HVAC installation service providers. But make sure you read their reviews before hiring them.

Problems That Occur Because Of Improper HVAC Installation

Many people tend to hire inexperienced and unlicensed HVAC contractors to save money. However, that often results in improper HVAC installation. And lack of proper HVAC installation, in turn, can lead to various issues. Here are some of the most common ones.

  • It Leads to Reduced HVAC Efficiency

Lack of proper HVAC installation can result in reduced HVAC efficiency. Usually, improper insulations lead to issues such as leaky ducts and lack of insulation which in turn leads to reduced HVAC efficiency.

  • It Leads to Increased Power Consumption

If an HVAC is not installed properly, it will have to work harder to maintain the required temperatures. This, in turn, leads to increased energy consumption, which further translates into hefty energy bills.

  • It Leads to Bad Indoor Air Quality

Besides having to pay hefty energy bills and bear the discomfort caused by reduced heating and cooling, improper HVAC installation also leads to poor indoor air quality. This can be a potential health hazard and can lead to headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and various respiratory issues.

  • It Leads to Frequent Breakdowns

Hiring an inexperienced HVAC contractor might save you money during the installation process. But if the HVAC is not properly installed, it will lead to frequent breakdowns in the long run. This, in turn, will force you to spend a lot on HVAC repairs.

  • It Increases the HVAC Service Life

Usually, HVACs last around 10 years if maintained properly. But if not installed correctly, your HVAC’s components would experience increased wear and tear, which in turn would lead to the frequent need for HVAC parts replacement. In fact, it might even lead to premature HVAC replacement.
