What Does Installing Air Conditioning & Heating Supply Involve?

Installing air conditioning and heating systems is much more complex than it sounds, and most customers are surprised how much work goes into this process. What’s more, they’re impressed by how much difference a professional installation really makes! Here’s what really goes into making your home comfortable through every season.

Step 1 – Professional Evaluation

First, an experienced technician will come to your home and perform a thorough inspection. In addition to evaluating the current system (if there is one), they will look at your home’s unique heating and cooling needs, how you want the system to perform, any unique installation challenges (limited roof space, National Trust limitations, aesthetics, etc.), home inefficiencies that may need to be corrected, and compatibility between existing systems and modern upgrades. This will give you a clear idea of the costs involved as well as ensuring you get a unique system designed for your home.

Step 2 – Review and Recommendations 

The team will then go over the process with you, make suggestions regarding the right equipment for your home, and even give suggestions for making your home more energy-efficient. Things like installing roof insulation and sealing cracks and drafts can help make your new system perform at maximum efficiency, helping keep your home more comfortable while reducing the cost of your energy bill.

Step 3 – Site Preparation

Now the home needs to be prepared for the new system. Again, this is unique to every home and can include carefully removing the existing system and recycling it responsibly, safely disconnecting electrics, installing a new pad if needed, removing ductwork, sealing up holes from the old system, and removing old refrigerant lines.

Step 4 – Installation of the New System

Once the site is clean and ready for the new system, the installation will begin. Depending on the system you choose, this can involve setting new refrigerant lines, installing new vents and AC/heating units, laying new ducting, and much more. The system will also be installed according to electrical compliance regulations to ensure that it is fully safe for your home.

Step 5 – Testing

Now the new system will get thorough testing to make sure that it’s running as it should be. This means listening for unusual noises, checking the thermostat function, checking for consistent airflow and temperature in each room, and making adjustments as needed. We’ll also clean up to make sure you don’t have to deal with any dust or debris from the installation process.

Step 6 – Handover to You

Once the technician is satisfied that everything is working properly and installed safely and securely, they will run through the system with you. You’ll learn how to use the system and you can ask any questions that you may have about your new heating and cooling solution. In addition, your technician will run through basic seasonal maintenance requirements to keep your new system working perfectly.
