Planning for a new heating or air conditioning system? Learn how proper home preparation helps.
When it comes to the installation of a new heating and air conditioning system, a little preparation can make the process go a lot smoother. The truth is, nothing in your home can affect your comfort quite like your heating and air conditioning system. Though we commonly ignore them when they are functioning, we need to make sure they are properly installed, so we can enjoy ignoring them the other ninety percent of the time. By preparing your home for the installation, you will be setting up your new HVAC for the best working conditions.
Replacing your heating and air conditioning systems with newer updated, more energy efficient models is a good thing. It is vital to your system and your home to make sure they are properly installed. HVAC systems that are not properly installed can reduce system efficiency by up to 30%, which in turn costs you more money on your energy bills and shortens your system's lifespan.
Some helpful tips for preparing your home for an updated HVAC installation include:
- First, make sure your new HVAC system is properly sized for your home's needs.
- Make sure the area you're going to be putting your HVAC system is cleared away and cleaned properly.
- Make sure the area has properly installed and well-sealed duct work system access.
- Make sure your ductwork system is clean. If necessary, schedule professional air duct cleaning.
After your new HVAC is installed, it is vital to the performance and lifespan of your system that you have it professionally serviced at least twice a year. It would be a shame to install a new HVAC, only to not have the right maintenance plan in place to keep it functioning well, but by getting your ducks in a row and planning for proper care you will be able to reap the full benefits of your new heating and air conditioning system.
