Why You Shouldn’t Let Just Any Contractor Install Your New AC Unit

Make sure your new ac unit is installed by the right person

In our area of SWFL the outside temperature varies throughout the year. According to US Climate Data, the annual high temperature is 84.8°F, annual low temperature is 65.4°F and the average temperature is 75.1°F.

Although these are average temperatures, if you live in SWFL you know it can get much hotter (summer months) and much colder (winter months) than that.

Over the last few days our overnight and morning temperatures have been in the 50’s and by afternoon it is in the 70’s. So, you may turn on the heat overnight into the morning then switch the thermostat to cool in the afternoon.

It is better to have an efficient system that will keep you both warm and cool as needed.

All ac systems will eventually stop working and get to the point where repair will not help or it would be more cost effective to just replace the whole unit.

When this happens and you need a new HVAC system (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) it is important to have a certified licensed contractor install your new unit because:

  • Precise calculations must be done to ensure the ac unit chosen and installed will be the best fit for your home or business
  • Correct installation and sealing of all duct-work is needed to send the proper amounts of conditioned air to all rooms in the building
  • Size efficiency and placement of your ac system affects energy used and humidity control
  • Proper installation effects operating efficiency and for achieving performance rating
  • Your system needs the right controls and thermostat and they must be installed properly

Your HVAC system accounts for over 40% of your electric bill so you want a new unit that is the right size and is installed and sealed properly so that you can save on your utility bill each month.

After the installation you want a contractor that will be available for future maintenance (to keep your warranty) and when a repair is ever needed.

It is a good idea to build a relationship with a local contractor you can trust who is reliable, has a great reputation in the community and has been around for a long time.
