If you’re getting ready to replace your HVAC system this spring, make sure you’re in the know when it comes to professional HVAC installation service in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. While there are many contractors in the area, not everyone pays attention to details or keeps up on changes in technology. Here are three items you should be sure to address when you’re having a new HVAC system installed.

Not only will we make sure your home is comfortable when you install with us, but we will also work to make your home as energy efficient as possible. We are thorough and care for our customers.
Buying the right sized equipment is just as important as the installation job itself. To find your home’s heating and cooling load, your contractor will help you decide the amount of energy it takes to keep your house comfortable based on square footage, your type of home, your home’s level of insulation and local weather. When your HVAC technician is going over options with you, make sure that your system meets the load requirements for your home. Having an improperly sized system means your system will be running constantly, causing a high energy bill and early burnout of your investment.
After installation, make sure your load is balanced. Your technician will need to adjust vents properly to make sure air flows correctly through your home.
Your HVAC contractor should give you two types of warranties when you get an installation. One is a mechanical manufacturer’s warranty that covers any breakdowns on normal use for a certain period of time. The other is a labor warranty from your contractor for any issues with installation. Ask your technician to explain what each warranty covers and who you would talk to if you needed an HVAC repair later. If this happens, you want to be able to go directly to the manufacturer or your contractor, not have to be in a phone tag game deciding who can help.
The owner’s manual will go over adjusting equipment, but it’s always good to ask your technician to show you how so you can get the most out of your new HVAC. Getting a grasp of the settings from the manual will help you make sure to change settings correctly.
Since an HVAC system has a lifespan of 10-20 years, buying a cheaper, inefficient model will end up costing you more in the long run. Though tempting, you should generally buy the most efficient model in your budget at the time of installation so that you will get better energy saving and comfort over the time you have it.
