The time will come when your air conditioning system is not economically viable to fix, and you need a new system installed. This is a great way to get effective cooling for your home, increase energy efficiency and gain access to the latest features. However, an AC system represents a significant investment in your indoor comfort and it needs to be carefully considered before moving ahead. Here we will look at three key steps that you need to take in order to prepare your home for an air conditioning installation.
- Identify Your Requirements
Many people charge ahead and buy the most expensive AC system that they can afford and try to make it work for them. This is a terrible way to get started; there are other procedures that need to conducted before any equipment is purchased or installed. First, it’s a good idea to get a trusted local air conditioning installation expert on board early. They can carry out a survey that will ensure that you get the right size of AC system to suit your needs. This is very important, a system that is too large or too small for your home will cost more to run and be less effective. Secondly, your installer should be up to date with all the latest technology and can offer advice on some systems that may suit all of your needs.
- Prepare the Ductwork
If you have existing ductwork, you will need to have it cleaned and sealed before work commences. The last thing you want to do is introduce old dirt, debris, and dust, to your brand new air conditioning system. The health of your system and the quality of the air circulating in your home is reliant on the cleanliness of your ducts. The ducts will need to be sealed because any leaks will have a detrimental effect on your cooling performance and energy efficiency. Get your air conditioning to carry out a thorough duct cleaning before the new AC installation process begins.
- Clear the Installation Areas
Before the AC installation begins, clear out the areas where the equipment is going to be installed. Pay attention to common installation areas, such as stairs, porches, and gardens, where work will be carried out. This will make the installation process easier and quicker for the AC installers. If they have to stop to ask you to move garden waste and tools where the outside unit is being installed, it will inevitably delay the process.
