If you have decided that it is finally time to have a central air conditioning unit installed, you will want to make sure that you are getting as prepared for the appointment as possible. This will help ensure that the entire installation process goes smoothly. Not sure what you can do? Just spend a little time checking out the following suggestions.
Clear The Space For The Outside Unit
Once you have had the consultation with the HVAC contractor and have confirmed an appointment date, they will show you where they intend to install the unit. They pick the location based on what will be easiest when trying to tie into the existing heating system. You will want to remove any rocks or garden decor. You will want to mow the grass in that area and make sure that there is a clear path from where they will park to the spot where the AC unit will be placed.
Clean The Ductwork
It would be nice to start up your brand new central air conditioning unit and for it to push nice cool air through clean duct works. You will want to have the ductwork system cleared before the installation date. The same company might offer this service, but you can always use another company if it's necessary. You might as well also have the vent covers cleaned at this time.
Review What You Ordered
It is important to make sure that you are double checking your order form or invoice so you will have the type and size of the central AC unit fresh in your mind. This will be helpful when confirming that the correct central air conditioning unit has been delivered. You will also want to research how to maintain central AC systems, as well as what you need to do if you find water outside of the unit or it's freezing up. This way, you are completely prepared for the moment you are able to start using your new central AC system.
Now that you have the information you need to get as prepared as possible before the central air conditioning system installation, you will want to get into action. Try not to wait too close to the date of the appointment, just in case there is something you have to get fixed before the installation is done. For example, if there is a break in the ductwork somewhere, it is going to need to be repaired or replaced so you don't lose air-conditioned air in the walls.
