Your Guide for a Great AC Installation

AC-installationOkay, so we realize that temperatures are not exactly scorching out there just yet. That being said, June will be here before you know it, and it’s not much longer before your air conditioner is back into regular rotation once again. If you need a new air conditioner installed, either in a new property that is going up or as a replacement for a worn out old system, you don’t want to cut things too close timewise.

That being said, you also definitely don’t want to be rushing through your air conditioning system installation. There is a lot to consider, even in the event that you are replacing an old system in a house that you’ve been in for some time. Whether it’s your first AC installation you’ve navigated on your own or you are an old pro, you need to take some time to get everything squared away if you want a truly smooth air conditioning installation in Grand Rapids, MI.

First of All, Get a Budget Planned Out

Maybe money is of no concern to you, meaning that you can go out and pay for a brand new, high-efficiency air conditioning system in full,  up front. That is great, and we commend you for your success. The fact of the matter, however, is that the majority of people do have some financial limitations that will guide their system selection—particularly in the event where they are faced with an unplanned replacement.

You shouldn’t just go out and buy the cheapest system you can find, of course. You should, however, take some time to make sure that you know how much you can comfortably spend. That way, we can guide you toward a system that is funneling what funds you do have available toward those features that will benefit you the most.

Ask Questions, and Explore Your Options

The central air conditioner is a major player in the residential air conditioning industry, and with good cause. There are plenty of benefits that you may enjoy from sticking with the tried and true split central AC. That being said, there are other options out there, and you should at least familiarize yourself with them in order to avoid overlooking a system that is actually better for your needs and preferences.

Heat pumps, ductless mini splits, dual fuel systems—there are pros and cons to all. By reviewing these systems and what they have to offer, you can make a truly informed decision before putting down your hard-earned money on a new system. Still not sure which is right for you? Let us know what questions you may have!

Always Hire a Qualified Professional

At the end of the day, even the most advanced, well-designed and manufactured air conditioner can wind up letting you down. How so? If it is not installed properly every step of the way. That is why you cannot trust just anyone to handle your installation.

Sure, there are plenty of licensed and insured contractors out there, but delve into things a bit more before making a decision. Don’t be afraid to ask for referrals, review affiliations, and read reviews. A good contractor may not be tough to find—but a great one requires a bit more digging! Of course, you’re already here, so you’ve got a good headstart.
