Summer is finally here! Warmer temperatures mean a warmer home. Installing an air conditioning unit is a great way to counteract all the heat from outside, and make the inside of your home cool and comfortable. Before an HVAC contractor sets foot in your home, there are some tasks you can do to make the job go quicker and easier. From Wiehler Mechanical in Calgary, here’s how to prepare for air conditioning installation.
Choose and clear a space outside
There needs to be a viable place for the air conditioning unit to stand.Your HVAC contractor will help you choose a place where there aren’t too many plants, because they may interfere with the function of your AC unit. Once the space is chosen, make sure it’s properly cleared. If your backyard is full of vegetation or clutter, clearing that area will help out the contractors, and keep your unit healthy.
Clean the ducts
This is something contractors can also do, however, it’s a task that can also be done yourself. In cleaning the ducts, you’ll keep any debris or dust from traveling around the house once the air conditioning is turned on. It will increase the quality of the air and keep the system running smoothly. As well, cleaning the ductwork allows you to check if there are any problems with it. These could be things like dirt build-up, or leaks and holes.
Learn how the unit works
It’s a good idea to research how the air conditioning unit will work before having it installed. You’ll know all the features it comes with and how to adjust the settings. This is also something you can ask the contractors about before they’ve installed the unit. Knowing how your air conditioner works will help you troubleshoot any potential issues in the future. You can also learn how to do some DIY maintenance tasks. Your contractor can give advice on how to keep the unit in good working order.
If you have any questions about your air conditioner installation, don’t hesitate to ask your technician from Wiehler Mechanical Plumbing & Heating.
