How to Get the Perfect AC Install

air-conditioningWhen you’re looking for a new AC installation in Springfield, PA, it might be because you need to replace an older system that’s no longer working well, or maybe it’s the first AC for a new house. Whatever the situation, you want to ensure that you get as high-quality an installation as you can. A poorly done installation will cause numerous problems, starting with inferior energy efficiency that will force you to pay more for cooling than necessary. There are other potential problems, such as ending up with an AC that’s too big or too small for the house (both are trouble), bad electrical connections, and air leaks around the ductwork.

What’s the secret to getting a great, even perfect AC install? It’s not much of a secret… 

Always Hire HVAC Professionals to Install Your New Air Conditioner!

You simply cannot get a quality AC installation done if you entrust the job to an amateur—and that includes you! Putting in a new air conditioning system as a DIY project can lead to plenty of disasters. You may not realize how much work goes into this job. Just getting the old AC out is a major affair, and it needs to be recycled. Do you have any idea how to do that?

An amateur who claims to be able to do the job on the cheap isn’t much better. If you have a technician offer to take care of the installation, but they can’t show you proof they’re licensed and have the proper insurance, go to someone else who can. The way amateurs make money with their cut-rate prices is to do cut-rate jobs. They rush the work to get in as many installs as possible. An amateur is likely to make a mistake with sizing an AC, and the only way to correct this is to replace the air conditioner. Other common amateur errors include putting in the wrong amount of refrigerant (which will eventually cause the AC to break down) and sloppily wiring it to the electrical system. 

Another factor to consider with amateurs is that the warranty on any piece of air conditioning equipment will be voided if non-professionals installed it. You don’t want to run into factory faults with your AC several years down the line only to discover you don’t have warranty protection to pay for the repairs because an amateur put in the system.

By the way, never install used air conditioning equipment. This isn’t a way to save money. An old AC will not come with a warranty because moving the system to a different house will invalidate the warranty. You’ll have a potentially wonky AC with fewer years of life left, and you won’t have a good idea what shape it’s in. Professionals won’t install used equipment either. It’s all around a bad idea.

All it takes for a great AC install is to call our technicians. We’re licensed and have over 40 years of experience.
