Homeowners often consider installing a new AC for a more comfortable and cool indoor experience. Although choosing a new air conditioner may look very straightforward, there are certain things that everyone who is about to install a new air conditioning system should know.
If you are considering installing an air conditioner, here are some things you should keep in mind before you make a booking for AC installation.
Request a Quote for New Air Conditioning System Installation Charges
One common mistake that people make when buying an AC system is that they only look at the price of the AC and forget to incorporate the cost of installation. Installing all kinds of AC units does not cost the same. Therefore, if you forget to find out the installation costs, you may end up paying higher installation charges later.
Art HVAC offers its customers a full-price quote before AC installation that covers every possible avenue.
Contact the company that you’re buying an AC unit from and ask them if they provide installation services. Inquire about the charges before you commit anything, and don’t forget to ask if they offer any AC maintenance plans. Some AC manufacturers offer free maintenance for a specified period after purchase as well.
One more thing you need to keep in mind before buying an AC unit is that buying a cheap AC unit is not always what will save you money. You might buy an AC that is cheap, but it might not be energy efficient. You’ll be spending more money on higher energy bills over the years, with the use of an inefficient AC unit. So, make sure that you buy the right AC unit that helps you bring down your energy bill.
Required Ductwork For Installation of HVAC Unit
For transportation of cool air to the entire home, you need the correct ductwork. If the ductwork in your house might not be able to transport air to the rooms you want to cool, you will need professional help to fix the ductwork first. Even if the ductwork is done right but was done a while ago, you might encounter unwelcome surprises after AC installation, such as cool air escaping through holes in ducts or clogged ducts.
To make sure that the ductwork is in good condition, get an HVAC technician to inspect it beforehand. It might need resealing of seams and joints. Proper ductwork is crucial for efficiently cooling the house. Therefore, you should not make the mistake of cutting corners here.
Determine the Space You Want to Cool with A New Air Conditioning System
The available space in your house determines the type of air conditioning system you require. You should choose the one that has the right capacity and is effective in cooling the entire space. Ideally, you should let a professional determine the requirements as they have the expertise and know which AC unit works best in different spaces. Art HVAC experts can provide great advice and insights on how you can effectively cool the available space.
When Installing a New Air Conditioning System — Get Some Add-ons
If you haven’t exhausted the entire air conditioning budget, you can also consider add-ons for added comfort. To avoid breathing in air that carries allergens and micro-organisms, you might also want to consider investing in an Air Purification System.
Air purification systems can be an add-on to your existing AC system and ensure purified air inside your home that is safe for the entire family. It can be a beneficial add-on if a family member has breathing allergies.
