Why Installation is the most important step in HVAC system replacements

Congratulations, you have made the decision to replace your inefficient old heating and air conditioning systems. Builder’s Heating & Air Conditioning wants to make sure you know the installation is a critical part of your decision.

Take a moment and think of it like you would a football game. Your brand-new air conditioner or heating system is just like the star quarterback or running back. Without blockers, the star’s talent is wasted. The team can’t realize its full potential.

In this case, the installers are the blockers. A poor AC installation means a new system won’t reach its full potential of cooling efficiency. The results are your home won’t be as comfortable and you won’t save as much money as you should on monthly utility bills.

A successful replacement or new home installation starts long before the workers show up at your house. Our knowledgeable project managers and comfort specialists will help you choose the right equipment. Only proper system sizing of your new AC unit can assure the cool air will reach the various parts of your home quietly and at the temperature you expect.

All of your homework and preparation will be wasted if your system is not properly installed. Our trained Builder’s technicians routinely find improper installations. Four common problems are:

  • Inadequate air flow – This can cause your rooms to be uncomfortable as well as require your system to work harder, reducing equipment life, and driving up energy use.
  • Refrigerant system not properly charged – Clearly this affects the cooling efficiency of your air conditioner, and it can also cause long-term damage to your system.
  • Leaky ducts – Central systems can lose up to 30% of their efficiency as the conditioned air moves through the ductwork if the ducts have leaks or weren’t properly installed.
  • Installing shortcuts – Critical components such as filter dryers and thermal expansion valves are omitted from the installation, increasing your new systems susceptibility for premature failure.

Builder’s will make sure your home doesn’t have those problems. Our technicians have been installing heating & cooling systems in homes, townhomes, and condos for more than 60 years. Call us so you can benefit from that experience.
