A Quality HVAC Installation Checklist To Optimize Your Investment

A Quality HVAC Installation Checklist To Optimize Your InvestmentIf you’re planning or have already made arrangements to have all or part of your HVAC system replaced, make sure you hire a qualified professional contractor. Your HVAC system is a critical part of your home, and you shouldn’t trust the installation to “the low bidder.” Ask potential installers plenty of questions about their experience, check their qualifications, and ask for references to ensure that you get a quality HVAC installation.

Use this checklist as a guide to ensure quality HVAC installation: Your contractor should:

  • Leave ample space around all equipment (indoor and out) to allow for service, maintenance and air-flow.
  • Install a programmable thermostat, set it to your desired levels, and show you how to use it.
  • Show you where all filters are located and make sure you know how and when to change them.
  • For new furnaces and heat pumps, he should test the air-flow.
  • For heating equipment, check burner operation, confirm proper venting, and instruct you how to spot flue leaks.
  • Coordinate all indoor and outdoor coils to make sure they will function together at peak efficiency.
  • Check refrigerant charge and the air-flow across the coil to conform to manufacturer’s specifications.
  • Make sure all outside equipment (condenser/compressor) is located in an area where it will be protected from the elements as much as possible.

Before you hire a contractor, review this checklist with him/her and make sure he understands that you expect these items to be done. Don’t trust such an important and costly piece of your home to an unqualified contractor. A few simple precautions can guarantee a quality HVAC installation.
