First, our crew will protect all flooring in applicable work areas by laying drop cloths and/or protective paper. Next, they should move furniture and other household belongings near the work areas to a safe location and out of the way. Because there may be some dust created during the installation, heavy furniture and other household items that cannot be moved should be covered with plastic for protection. After ensuring all flooring and household items are protected, the crew will bring in their tools and begin the project.
Before installing your new HVAC system, the crew must first remove the old equipment along with any ducts that need to be replaced. This may involve gaining access to attic areas, crawl spaces, and basements that typically house the HVAC system. After cutting the power to the HVAC unit, the crew will remove any refrigerant from the AC system and begin disassembling and removing the old equipment.
Duct Repair and/or Modification
Depending on the scope of your project, ductwork repair and/or replacement may be involved. One or two crew members will typically begin this work, while the lead installer begins assembling the new equipment. If major ductwork is involved in your HVAC project, you can expect to have crew members negotiating their way through attics and crawl spaces to make the repairs or modifications necessary for the new equipment. In addition, major ductwork could prolong the completion of the HVAC replacement, so plan accordingly.
After repairing or modifying the existing ductwork, our crew will begin installing the new equipment to the manufacturer’s specifications. Depending on the type of system you choose, the equipment may be installed both inside and outside your home. The components installed may include the inside air handler or evaporator, outside compressor or condensing unit, new refrigerant supply lines, thermostat, condensate drain lines, and the condensate pump when applicable. In addition, while we can upgrade wiring and circuit breakers during a typical HVAC installation, major changes to the property’s electrical system and circuitry may require the services of a licensed electrical contractor..
Installing Your New HVAC Unit Replacement
Possible Unforeseen Circumstances: As with many home improvement projects, unexpected repairs—in addition to your written estimate—can pop up that are necessary to complete the project. These might include replacing damaged ductwork, rotten wall studs, electrical upgrades, and drywall repairs that are not included in your estimate. Although Peppers Heating and Air will try to cover all the bases in the initial estimate, there are things that cannot be assessed until the project has started.
Testing the New HVAC System
Upon completing the HVAC replacement installation, a start-up procedure will be performed to assure factory specifications are met. Thermostats programmed, connected to wifi, along with heat and air testing will be performed. All vents are checked to ensure proper airflow to every area.
After all, testing is complete, your technician will go over the proper operation of the new system and warranty information as well as answer any questions. Then you’ll be ready to reap the benefits of a more comfortable home.
Quality Control Inspection
Peppers performs a quality control inspection after each system is installed to ensure proper installation has been performed and to fine-tune the performance of the system.
Also a free season of maintenance for the following season to ensure Results that Last.
