If you’re purchasing a new air conditioning system for your home, there are many things you need to know to ensure its proper installation. Improper installation of an AC unit can lead to serious and expensive problems. For instance, a unit that’s too large will suck up more energy than is needed to cool your New Orleans, LA, house. That will lead to expensive–unnecessarily expensive–energy bills. You could wind up paying hundreds more than you should have to each year for cooling costs. On the other hand, an AC unit that’s too small will be overtaxed. The unit will have to work extra hard all the time in order to cool your home. That will lead to costly system breakdowns. It can also reduce the longevity of your system.
The size of the unit is just one consideration when it comes to new air conditioner installation. Here are some considerations to keep in mind when it comes to the AC installation process.
Hire a Licensed Air Conditioner Installation Company
Whenever you have any service performed on your HVAC system, it should be conducted by an experienced service provider like bluefrog Home Services of New Orleans. Never entrust your air conditioner installation to anyone except a certified technician from a reputable HVAC company. Our technicians have the experience, expertise, and credentials to provide the services our customers need.
As mentioned, a skilled technician can help you source your air conditioning unit before installation day. They can help you choose an energy-efficient model that’s also the proper size for cooling your home. They are well aware of the best brands in the marketplace. You can rely on our technicians to help you select the ideal model for your house and budget.
Another reason that you need a skilled contractor to perform your air conditioner installation is that they will install it properly. Unfortunately, improper AC installation is more commonplace than you’d think. One or two mistakes can cause damage to your new AC system. Improper installation is also a safety concern. If your installers make mistakes, you can expect lots of repairs and reduced system longevity. Avoid this nightmare by contacting bluefrog Home Services of New Orleans, LA, and letting our pros provide you with expert air conditioner installation.
Depending on where you live, you may be required to have permits for your AC installation project. Again, the technicians of bluefrog Home Services of New Orleans will be able to manage this aspect of the installation for you. We routinely perform air conditioner installations all across the city. We know the ins and outs of the permit process and can ensure that your installation project goes smoothly–and in accordance with municipal regulations.
Before proceeding with an air conditioner installation project, be sure that you understand the warranties associated with the product and the HVAC installation service. Our technicians can go over the warranties associated with your new air conditioning systems. The manufacturers will present the warranty information in writing. We recommend installing units made by trusted manufacturers who stand by their products with robust warranties.
Also, we stand by the quality of our workmanship. Our work comes with a guarantee–and we don’t depend on subcontractors to perform on our behalf. We’ll discuss each aspect of the produce and service warranties with you before we begin your air conditioner installation project.
How Does the Unit Work?
Our technicians will go over how to safely operate your air conditioning system. While these units come with manuals, we know that our customers aren’t technicians. We’re happy to discuss how to operate your new unit so that you use it properly. Although many central air conditioning systems work much like others, there are often some differences that customers should know about. You can count on our technicians to help you understand how your unit works.
All AC units will need routine maintenance after installation. Neglecting this maintenance can lead to all sorts of problems, including breakdowns and reduced AC system longevity. Typically, an annual inspection and tune up is all you need to safely maintain your air conditioning system. Maintenance involves filter changes, lubrication of moving parts, checks on fluids, and so forth. Our technicians will discuss why you should never forgo your annual maintenance checks.
Most people schedule their AC maintenance right before the summer season. If you tend to turn on your unit in spring, contact bluefrog Home Services of New Orleans early in spring for a complete inspection and AC system tune up. We’ll run the system and make sure that it’s in optimum functioning condition.
As your AC system ages, parts will begin to wear. That’s inevitable. During inspections, our techs will check for worn parts and replace them before they can cause a breakdown and system damage. Even new systems should be maintained. With routine AC maintenance, you can make sure that your unit works properly and does not require premature replacement.
