Now that step one is out of the way (making the decision to purchase the unit), the next thing you should be doing is preparing your home for the new unit.
Want to know how?
Well, as an AC company that serves Philadelphia and many other surrounding areas, we would like to offer these three tips to help you prepare for a new air conditioning unit installation.
Double-check with the company to guarantee that you have the right unit.
One of the things our technicians do is survey your home to ensure that you will have the most applicable unit installed. A reputable company (such as us) will take things into consideration such as the size of your home, how many windows there are, as well as the overall type of environment you live in. By calculating all of these things together (often referred to as the cooling load calculation), we will be able help you narrow down which unit is not only the most cost-effective, but one that will adequately cool your home.
If you have any old ductwork, have the company clean it out.
This is necessary if you are having a new central air conditioning unit installed. A lot of the time, we perform this service for our customers so that their new system is not immediately contaminated with any old dust or grime. In any case, having your home’s ductwork cleaned every once in a while will help guarantee that your air quality is good. If you do not remember the last time (if ever) you had your ductwork checked, we at Hutchinson can help.
Make sure your home is clean and tidy where the installation and work is going to take place.
Before (we) the air conditioning technicians set foot inside your home the day of the installation, we highly suggest that you clean the area where most of the work is going to take place. Also, if the technicians need to travel up any stairs or walk through any other rooms, we suggest that you remove any items that may prohibit them from gaining access to where they need to go. Just like you want your new air conditioning unit installed quickly, most of the time the technicians want to get their job done quickly as well. Lastly, if you have any pets, make sure that they do not get in way of the technicians.
If you know you are ready to have your unit installed, call us immediately. We pride ourselves on being transparent and guaranteeing that our customers get everything they want and need in regards to their new air conditioning unit.
