Air conditioning is one of the greatest inventions, especially for parts of the country that are extremely hot and humid. A/C makes life much more comfortable, but the moment a unit goes out and the heat returns, it's unbearable. To prevent inconveniences such as the breaking of a unit, it's important to have a quality unit installed and maintained for years to come. This will ensure quality A/C for you and your family.
When you decide to purchase a new unit and have decided on the make and model, it's crucial to pick the right company for installation. A/C units are only as good as the installation. Most encounter difficulties with units not because they are poor quality but because installation was poor. So, knowing that information, begin looking for a company with proven installation and satisfied customers.
As the time for installation rolls around, what will take place? If you have never had an A/C unit installed then you don't know what to expect and what the installation company should do. Here's what to expect from a quality company:
-The A/C unit, along with parts and tools are brought by the installer. You aren't expected to haul the unit and any additional parts to your home prior to installation.
-All equipment is unloaded at your residence and inspected for damage or malfunction. This is an important step because faulty equipment does not need to be installed. Installation professionals must check equipment constantly for quality.
-Installation begins, leaving you without A/C for an hour or two, depending on the installation professional. This must take place so the old unit can be removed and the new unit hooked up properly.
-When the unit is installed, the installation professional will test the unit and make sure it functions at each level. Testing each function, the professional will troubleshoot any problems and check for malfunctions.
-Once the unit is in good working order, the professional will discuss the details of the system with you and explain basic functions for daily use. If you have questions about the system--speak up and don't let the professional leave until you have answers.
-Lastly, the air conditioning professional will clean up the installation area and remove any debris. Some companies will haul old equipment away for you and it's important to ask the professional to take your old system. This reduces the hassle of removing it yourself.
