What Can You Expect When You Have Your HVAC Unit Replaced


hvac unit replacementIf your HVAC system is nearing the end of its lifespan, you might be considering a replacement. While a new system is a significant investment, it can bring several benefits to your home’s comfort and energy efficiency. But what exactly happens during an HVAC replacement? Let’s break down the process step-by-step so you know what to expect.

Before the Installation – Choosing the Right Contractor

The first step is finding a reputable professional heating and cooling company. Ask friends and neighbors for recommendations, and research online reviews. When contacting potential contractors, inquire about their experience with HVAC replacement, certifications, and licensing. Get quotes from several companies, and ensure they include a detailed breakdown of the work involved and the cost of the new unit. Don’t hesitate to ask questions about the system’s features, efficiency ratings, and warranty coverage.

During the consultation, a contractor will assess your existing HVAC system and your home’s needs. Factors like square footage, insulation levels, and climate will influence the recommended system size and type. Discuss your budget and desired features –  consider high-efficiency models for long-term savings or smart thermostats for remote control. Once you’ve chosen a contractor and system, they’ll obtain the necessary permits for the heating and air conditioning install.

Preparing for the Day – What to Expect During Installation

When you choose a professional heating and cooling company like Clay’s Climate Control, we’ll schedule a convenient time for the installation. Be prepared for some disruption, as the process typically takes a full day or even two, depending on the complexity of your system. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Clearance and Access: Our technicians will need access to your entire HVAC system, including the indoor unit and outdoor condenser. Make sure furniture and belongings are cleared from around these areas.
  • Disassembly and Removal: Our technicians will carefully remove your old HVAC unit. This may involve draining refrigerant and disconnecting electrical wiring.
  • Ductwork Check: Our technicians will assess your ductwork for leaks or damage. In some cases, repairs or cleaning might be recommended to optimize airflow and efficiency.
  • New System Installation: Our technicians will install the new air conditioning unit according to manufacturer specifications. This involves connecting electrical wiring, refrigerant lines, and condensate drain lines.
    • Important Note: Throughout the installation, we prioritize safety and cleanliness.  Our team lays down protective drop cloths and disposes of your old unit responsibly.

Post-Installation – System Startup 

Once the installation is complete, our technicians will perform a thorough system check. This includes pressure tests to ensure no refrigerant leaks, electrical safety checks, and a test run of the heating and cooling functions. Our team will also take the time to explain how to operate your new HVAC system, including proper thermostat settings and any user-friendly features.  We will answer questions you may have about system maintenance and care.

Living With Your New HVAC System – Enjoying the Benefits

With your new HVAC system up and running, you can expect significant improvements in your home comfort. Here are some of the benefits you can look forward to:

  • Improved Efficiency: Modern HVAC systems are designed to operate with less energy, potentially lowering your utility bills.
  • Enhanced Comfort: Your new system should provide consistent and reliable temperature control throughout your home, eliminating hot or cold spots.
  • Quieter Operation: New systems tend to be quieter than older models, creating a more peaceful home environment.
  • Better Air Quality: Some advanced systems offer air filtration capabilities, improving indoor air quality and potentially reducing allergy and asthma symptoms.
  • Thinking Long-Term: Remember, proper maintenance is key to maximizing the lifespan and efficiency of your new HVAC system. Schedule regular professional maintenance checks with Clay’s Climate Control.
