6 Top Reasons To Hire Professional For Air Conditioning Installation

Purchasing an air conditioning unit is a major decision that represents a significant investment, it not only adds a level of comfort to your home, it also adds value. The question on whether to install it yourself or have a professional air conditioning company on the Gold Coast, Qld to install it for you can be decided after you consider these six top reasons why you should not do it. Think about the consequences of trying the “do it yourself approach” when things do not go according to plan. There is, as my son likes to say, three ways to do everything, the right way the wrong way and “Dads way”.

1. Correct location and mounting

Installing an air conditioning unit cannot be done correctly by someone watching a YouTube video on how doing it.

As every home is different, sometimes the most obvious place to mount your indoor unit and the sensors that allow it to run properly are not the best as far as having good airflow and keeping your rooms at the desired temperatures is concerned. The qualified professionals who install air conditioning units have been trained to locate the best position to place air conditioners in your home. They know just how to safely mount them so they run at the most economical and efficient level.

With ducted installations this is particularly important; a professional is trained to work out the best places to place the air ducts and room inlets. The ducting can be placed through the floor, ceilings or walls depending on the individual job

2. The Right Tool for the Job

The installation of a split level or ducted air conditioning unit requires specialized tools and the types of technical skills most lay people do not have. Apart from making sure the internal units are correctly mounted the installer needs to ensure that there is minimal structural and cosmetic damage done when pipework or ducting is placed through walls, floors or ceilings.

3. The Outdoor Condensing Unit

A split level system and a ducted system will have a condensing unit outside which needs to be mounted correctly on a solid foundation so it has ample air to keep it cool and running properly. It also needs to be as close as practical to the inside unit for maximum efficiency while being protected from direct sunshine and adverse weather conditions

4. The indoor unit

The indoor unit of a split level system should be mounted away from any sources of heat such as stoves, ovens, dishwashers, laundry appliance and light fittings. For ducted units, the thermostats need to be mounted where they can detect the average temperature of each room and the ducts need to be insulated and leak free

5. The connection of all pipework and the gassing with refrigerant of the unit is something that must be done by a professional who is qualified and certified such as the air conditioning installation specialists on the Gold Coast Qld
