If you are gearing up to have an air conditioner installed in your home, then you should prepare yourself. Air conditioning installations are quite a big job. Depending on the size of you air conditioner, these installations can also take a while. With an expert technician, you shouldn’t encounter any problems during the installation.
However, there are a few things you can do to better prepare your home for the installation. Don’t be afraid to ask some questions when you are speaking with an air conditioning specialist. All installations are different and they will be able to give you some great advice on preparing your home.
Make sure you choose the best air conditioning specialists
Before your air conditioner is installed, you have to choose a company to install it. This is just as important as the installation itself. Different air conditioning companies offer markedly different services. Some might specialise in commercial ducted air conditioning, while others have more experience with domestic split systems. Before you settle on a technician for you job, consider what you need. If you are looking to install split system air conditioning in your home, then find a specialist with experience in this field.
There are a few things you can do to make the process smoother
Depending on the size and extent of your installation job, it may take a while. During the installation period, you will just have to sit back and trust in the expertise of the technicians. Before this installation commences, however, there are some things you can do to prepare. If you prepare your home or office well, then the installation will be a breeze.
#1 Take some time to consider where you want you air conditioner
Your air conditioner installation will be much more efficient if you work out where the air conditioner is going beforehand. Generally, you will be able to work this out with your installation specialists early in the process. They will be able to offer you some good advice as to the ideal location for your air con unit. Placement is very important and it can affect the effectiveness of your air conditioner. As a result, it is vital that you give it careful thought and consult a specialist where necessary.
#2 Make sure there is plenty of space for the technicians to work
During the installation, your air conditioning technicians are going to need some room to work. Air conditioning installations are quite labour intensive jobs. This means it is important that you provide clear working spaces for the technicians. You might want to consider moving furniture or artwork out of the way before the technicians arrive. This will save them a great deal of time and effort, which they undoubtedly be grateful for. Remember, labour costs accumulate over time, so if you can save them time, then you can save yourself money.
#3 Don’t be surprised if things get a bit dusty
Whether you are installing ducted or split system air conditioning, things will get dusty. Most tradesmen will take great care to minimise the mess in your home, but a little dust is inevitable. You might want to prepare for this by covering up valuable items and furniture. If you have carpet, you may also wish to lay down a drop sheet. This will prevent plaster dust and debris from penetrating the fibres of your carpet. Again, it is always a good idea to ask your air conditioning installation experts if you have any questions. They know the process well and will be able to offer you great advice on what to do in preparation for your air conditioning installations.
