The Importance of Professional HVAC System Installation

Monday, June 13th, 2022

If you’ve made the decision to have a new air conditioner installed now, the chances are that this is an urgent need of yours, with summer right around the corner. You might be tempted to just go out and buy the most powerful cooling system you can find in your budget and install it on your own to save time. 

We really want to encourage you not to rush into this decision, however. Having a trained and experienced professional install your new HVAC system is essential since there are a number of components that require the person installing it to really know what they’re doing. Otherwise, you could have operational problems, not to mention safety problems. 

Plus, trusting a trained professional to do the installation keeps the warranty in place–we’re talking about the manufacturer’s warranty. This protects you from financial liability if your air conditioner breaks down or malfunctions due to a manufacturer defect within a certain amount of time (usually 10 years). But almost all of these warranties have a stipulation that only a professional can service them to keep the warranty current.

This definitely isn’t the only reason you want to trust a pro, though! Read on as we uncover just why it’s so important to have a professional install your HVAC system.
