The invention of the HVAC is one of the most significant for human progression. It controls the humidity, air purity, and temperature to ensure you have good quality air in your spaces. The goal is to have chill air in your home as you relax. According to the Air Conditioning Contractors of America, about 13 million homes in the US
(11%) depend on heat pumps for heating and cooling. Let’s take a look at three reasons you need a professional for your AC installation
1. Save on Costs
Did you know poor AC installation costs homeowners $130-180 million yearly in New York alone? Sometimes, cheap is expensive. While some people have excellent hand skills, many would benefit from having a professional install their AC. If you damage one component of an AC system, it could have implications for the whole system and cost you to replace the damaged components. The installation mistakes might make you dig deeper into your pockets than if you hired an AC installation expert the first time.
Protects Your Warranty
You can install AC without damaging anything in the system. However, to be sure, it is best to hire a professional. If you damage any part of the AC unit by mistake, you might void your warranty before its expiration. In addition, some companies refuse to offer benefits to users who damaged part of the AC during installation. If you hire a professional, you can be sure they are less likely to make a mistake. However, if they damage your AC, you can hold them accountable. Moreover, many air conditioning companies extend warranties to professional AC installations.
For Your Safety
AC installation is a potentially risky activity. Even among professionals, accidents are not uncommon. For example, according to a U.S. Department of Labor report, there were about 37,000 separate HVAC and plumbing-related accidents last year. Although most injuries are non-fatal and have since been significantly reduced, the risk would increase when a non-trained person tries to install an air conditioner.
