In the market for a new central heat and air unit?
If your central HVAC system is showing the 3 signs it may be time to replace your unit; then you are probably getting ready to contact an AC installation company. But, before you do, use this troubleshooting guide to help you through the process.
Avoid the 5 Common HVAC Installation Mistakes
HVAC system installation mistakes can seriously cost you. But, they can be easily avoided if you know what to watch out for.
Choosing the Wrong Installer
One of the first mistakes homeowners or businesses make is hiring the wrong HVAC contractor. Just choosing the lowest bid could start a domino effect of problems. Thoroughly check the credentials of installers you are considering before hiring them for the job. Choosing an expert AC installation company is the first step toward avoiding the next four pitfalls.
Selecting the Wrong Size
Bigger is not always better, nor is automatically choosing the equipment size you currently have. Make sure the installer is performing the necessary calculations to suggest the proper size and capacity.
Poor Air Distribution Design
The heating and air conditioning equipment only do half the work. Your ductwork must be designed correctly, checked for leaks, and for compatibility with the new AC heater unit.
Poorly Designed Drain Systems
Waste water from your high-efficiency air conditioner needs to drain safely away from the system. Poorly designed drainage systems can lead to water backing up in the pipes causing water damage or frozen pipes which can cause your HVAC system to fail. Accumulating water can also result in mold and air quality problems.
The wrong size exhaust flue or damper can cause serious problems. Furnaces produce toxic gases, such as carbon monoxide. An appropriately sized exhaust will vent these toxic gasses outside of the building.
HVAC Replacement is not a One-Size-Fits-All
Heating and cooling installation should not look the same for every home or office. Each home or office has unique needs. You need a qualified and experienced professional to guide you through choosing the unit that best suits your space and health needs.
