Investing in new HVAC equipment can make a huge difference in your comfort and utility bills. To save time and money and ensure a successful HVAC installation, it is essential to prepare for your brand-new unit.
In this post, Superior Air shares tips on preparing for your HVAC replacement.
Make Room for the Installation Team
Before the new HVAC system arrives, clear the room of clutter or any obstacles. Furnaces and air conditioners are large appliances, so make sure you have a clear path for the installation team. The space should be big enough to fit the equipment as well as the installers and their tools. Outside, make sure to trim any foliage near the work area. Indoors, it would be great if you could move your furniture and other large items so that they won’t impede the movement of the workers and the equipment. Remove anything of value such as antiques or artwork to avoid damage to your belongings.
Make Arrangements for Children & Pets
It’s best to keep children and pets away from the job site since the equipment and tools can be dangerous. If you’re renting out your space, don’t forget to inform the occupants before the installation. If the HVAC is for your business, let your employees know or pick a day when it’s less busy or there’s no one in the office or store.
Check Your Ductwork
The ductwork is an important part of your HVAC system because it moves heated or cooled air around your home. Over time, the ductwork can start to break down or get damaged. Before installation, it is important to take the time to have a professional look at your existing ductwork. This way, you can make sure it is in good shape. Replacing or repairing the ductwork will extend your project timeline, so plan accordingly.
