If you’re having a new HVAC system installed in your home or are having an old one replaced, then you probably have some questions about the installation process. We’re here to clear up those questions and prepare you for the job ahead. Here are some of the most common questions we get asked about HVAC installation.
How long does it take to install a new system?
This answer can vary a lot from one job to the next. If there has already been an HVAC system installed in your home (if you’re having one replaced, for example), then the necessary ductwork will already be in place. This will be a fairly quick job of simply connecting the new system in place of the old one. If your home doesn’t have an HVAC system, then the ductwork will also need to be installed, making it a more complex process.
You could have your new system done in a day while more complex jobs could take a few days. Once your technician knows the details of the job, they will be able to give you a more accurate estimate.
Can I do it myself?
Furnaces and air conditioners involve a lot of intricate parts and processes. There are a number of reasons why you should leave HVAC installation to the professionals. Firstly, it can be dangerous if you’re unsure of what you’re doing, especially since electricity and hazardous chemicals can be involved. Making a wrong move in your DIY project could also lead to your system not working properly, leaving you having to call a professional in the ned anyway. Plus, improper installation could lead to inefficiencies, causing your energy bills to rise.
How do I find an HVAC technician?
You want to ensure you find someone that’s reputable and experienced with HVAC installation. Search online and do plenty of research into your options to make sure they can be trusted. Check reviews, accreditations, and get in touch with them to make sure they’re genuine. You can also compare prices between companies by requesting quotes from different installers.
How do I choose the right HVAC system for my home?
Your contractor will be able to decide this for you based on a load calculation of your home. They should come out to your home to complete this calculation and determine what kind of system is best suited to you.
