Understanding the HVAC System Installation Process

Several potential problems can develop from improper air conditioning unit installation. First, you may end up with the wrong unit for your home. There are numerous types of systems available, including central air conditioners, split systems and ductless mini-splits.

Different units may also use different amounts of energy. By working with a professional from the start, you’re more likely to get the ideal system for your needs. They’ll provide advice to help you better understand your options.

They’ll also install it correctly, helping you avoid problems like the following:

Blockages and Leaks

AC systems can develop blockages. Ductwork can leak. When this happens, the system must use more energy and run much longer in order to cool your home. This results in high energy bills and increases the likelihood that the system will break down prematurely. 

Technicians who follow correct installation procedures know how to identify and address these issues before they cause significant problems.

Incorrect Refrigerant Levels

Different air conditioning units require different refrigerant levels. Using the wrong amount tends to waste energy and money. That’s another reason to trust professionals. They have the expertise necessary to correctly determine what level of refrigerant is right for your system.

Improper Cooling Loads

The odds are that not every room in your home is the same size. That means the cooling loads tend to vary throughout different sections of the home. The cooling load refers to the amount of heat energy the system must remove from a given space in order to maintain your preferred temperature. 

Thus, the ideal system output will vary from room to room. Professionals know how to make the necessary adjustments during the installation process to ensure the system cools each room effectively without wasting energy.

Understanding the Installation Process

The air conditioner installation process is different for each system and circumstance. For example, if you’re replacing an old system with a new one of the same type, the technicians will first remove the old equipment, then install the new equipment in its space, assuming the size is relatively the same.

However, if you’re getting a new type of unit, they may need to add certain features. For example, if your previous air conditioning unit was ductless, but you’re switching to a system that requires ductwork, the ducts will have to be installed first before the system can be.

Or, perhaps you’re switching to a split system that has outdoor components. If you didn’t have this type of system before, the pad for the equipment must first be installed.

Generally, however, the process involves these steps:

1. Sealing the Ductwork

Again, leaky ductwork reduces the effectiveness of a system. That’s why, when installing a new unit that connects to ducts, the technicians will seal the ductwork thoroughly. Don’t assume you can do this yourself with duct tape. Professional installers know how to identify leaks you might miss, and they have the tools to seal them properly.

2. Adjusting Airflow

After calculating the cooling load, which helps a technician choose the right unit for your home, they’ll refer to the manufacturer’s airflow rate recommendations. Adjusting the airflow to the correct rate is critical. If it’s too low, the system won’t cool your home effectively. If it’s too high, you’ll waste a lot of energy.

3. Adding Refrigerant and Checking Refrigerant Lines

This is another instance in which an experienced technician will use the manufacturer’s specifications to determine the amount of refrigerant your system needs. Cooling capacity and system efficiency diminish when the wrong amount of refrigerant is used. Because refrigerant can cause skin irritation and other problems, trust a professional with this step. They’ll perform it safely.
