So you’ve recognized that it’s time to upgrade your existing air conditioning system to a more energy efficient system. Congratulations! You’re making a long-term investment in your family’s comfort as well as the reduction of your utility bills and responsible consumption of energy. While those are all great things there are still a couple other things you can do to ready your Voorhees home before you get going with the air conditioning installation process.
First of all, the AC contractor should have done what’s called a heating and cooling load calculation. This involved calculation takes into account the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to determine the size and type of equipment needed. Ask to see the load calculation and have it broken down for you. If the contractor did what’s referred to as a Block Assessment, or did not perform a load calculation at all, we would strongly recommend finding another contractor or calling Atmostemp Service Experts at 856-310-4824. Your Voorhees HVAC expert will be able to give you a full assessment.
Next, have the company clean your ductwork. It’s not recommended to introduce caked on dirt and dust from a decades old duct system to your brand new air conditioning system. The health of your entire system and the quality of the air you breathe starts with your ducts providing clean air, so make sure that they are cleaned and properly sealed by the HVAC contractor. If you can’t remember the last time you had your ducts cleaned or have never had them cleaned, have the contractor perform a duct cleaning before your new AC installation.
Prior to the air conditioner installation you will also want to clear the area where equipment will be installed, and make sure it is easy to access. There are stairs, landscaping porches, decks or other items close to the AC, clear the area as much as you can. Make sure the area is clear of yard waste like big sticks and leaf piles so installation is even simpler. Also make sure to clear away anything else that could get in your installation professional’s way such as garden hoses, rakes, or children’s toys. Make sure pets are confined so they do not get in the way of the installation crew.
Think you’re ready to move forward with the air conditioning installation process? Call the experts at Atmostemp Service Experts at 856-310-4824 or schedule an appointment online for a free home comfort analysis and system upgrade estimate.
