Tips for a Successful AC Installation

AC-unit-topviewTemperatures are still fairly cool for the time being, and actually quite chilly at night.  That being said, it won’t be too long now before the intense heat—not to mention the at times crushing humidity—of summer descends upon us once more. If you have a new home being constructed, or if you don’t think that your AC has another productive season left in it, then it is definitely time to start thinking about getting your new air conditioner in Columbia, SC in place.

Before you get to the actual installation of your air conditioner, though, there are quite a few considerations to make. In today’s post, our AC experts want to give you some tips to help ensure a successful and completely satisfactory AC installation. There is a lot of ground to cover, and an air conditioner is the type of major investment that you absolutely want to get right the first time around. So read on, and contact our pros with any questions that you may have.

Set a Realistic Budget

It’s not the most fun part of any investment, but setting a budget that you know you can handle is going to help you a lot in the long run. Nobody wants to invest in great equipment, only to regret it when they realize that they overspent by any amount. Air conditioning systems vary quite a bit in terms of cost, and we can help you to decide where to best put your money.

Remember, certain features and ratings are going to result in high upfront costs than others. That being said, some of those features can help you to save money over time, so a higher sticker price should not necessarily turn you off of a product. Just let us know what your primary goals for your system are, and we’ll help you to find a system that satisfies them, you, and your budgetary considerations.

Consider All of Your Options

The central air conditioner is a ubiquitous system. Countless homes throughout the country and beyond use split central air conditioners in order to maintain comfortable environments.  The split central system is far from your only option, however, and may in fact not be the ideal system for your needs.

If you are serious about your 100% satisfaction with your new home cooling system, then you really need to get a sense of what options are available. We install and service geothermal systems, air-source heat pumps, ductless mini splits, and package units in addition to straightforward central ACs. Do some research before purchasing, and contact us with any questions that you may have.

Hire Professionals to Do the Job!

What’s worse than wasting great equipment due to a subpar AC installation? Seeing someone get hurt in the process! Not only do you risk a lousy cooling experience if you entrust your air conditioning installation to someone that really cannot handle the job, but you will wind up voiding warranties and running into potentially dangerous situations, too.

Strict guidelines regarding who can work with refrigerants should also limit the pool when it comes to your air conditioning installation. When you want the job done right, and you want it done right the first time, we’re the company to call.
