Why Should You Have a Professional Install Your A/C Unit?

Many homeowners try to take the DIY route when it comes to home maintenance and installing important components like HVAC units as a way to save money. However, this home repair project is not meant for a weekend install by even the best DIY homeowner. One skipped step can lead to costly repairs over time that you weren’t expecting.

Here are a few reasons why you should have a professional like the team at Cerrone Plumbing, Heating & HVAC install the A/C unit in your home:

1. Calculating the Proper Size Needed for Your Home

Professional HVAC installers are able to calculate which A/C unit will work best for the size of your home. They will analyze your home, locate any problem areas that may have excessive humidity, and help you find the best system within your budget. Buying a system that is too large or small for your home will end up costing you more in the long run.

2. Efficiency

As previously mentioned, one skipped step can lead to costly repairs over time. A/C installation requires a detail-oriented process that includes steps involving electrical wiring and seals. If you don’t have the proper equipment or knowledge base, you may end up putting strain on parts of the system and overwork the entire system. Hiring a professional like Cerrone Plumbing, Heating & HVAC to install your unit will ensure that your unit runs at maximum efficiency and lasts the average lifespan or longer.

3. Safety

HVAC system installs involve sharp pieces of metal and electrical components. If handled improperly, you may become injured while working on the system or end up damaging your home. HVAC technicians are trained to work safely and follow all necessary local and state code regulations.

The professionals at Cerrone Plumbing, Heating & HVAC are always available for all of your HVAC questions and needs - from tune-ups to installs, we do it all. Give us a call at (518) 798-6560 today, and we will find the best system for your home and budget.

Why You Should Get an A/C Tune-Up

Have you noticed that the only time you pay attention to your air conditioner is when it stops working? Like most people, you probably just turn on the air conditioner and go about your day. There is nothing worse than coming home to your A/C being broken when the temperatures are on the rise. A broken A/C can make your home feel like an oven, which, of course, is uncomfortable, but it can also be damaging to your home. A/C tune-ups are the simplest way to maintain your A/C unit and prevent it from breaking when you need it the most. 

Here are four reasons why every homeowner should get an annual A/C tune-up.

1. Help Prevent Breakdowns

An A/C tune-up is a preventative maintenance measure. During tune-ups, we inspect the inside and outside of your A/C unit to check for any issues that could lead to a breakdown in the future and fix them before it’s too late. By getting your A/C tuned and checked for problems, you are preventing any unexpected breakdowns that might occur. 

2. Efficiency and Extended Life

Dust and debris build up inside the air conditioner’s coils and mechanical parts over time, and can impact your unit’s ability to function properly. This means that your A/C may end up working harder to produce the same amount of energy and cool air. With regular A/C tune-ups, your unit becomes more energy efficient - meaning that you save money on your energy bills.

3. Air Quality

The air filters in your A/C unit fill up with dust, dirt, hair, and other debri, much like any other filters in your home. During a tune-up, all air filters in the unit are replaced to ensure that you are breathing the best air you can while inside your home.

4. Lower Costs

As mentioned above, a dirty A/C has to work harder to cool your home, causing your energy bills to rise. During regular tune-ups, the inner workings of the unit will be cleaned to make sure it functions at its highest efficiency. Also, if there is a problem with your unit, our technician will catch it and prevent it from becoming a significant problem in the future. This means you pay less for maintenance fees, and you are less likely to have to purchase a new unit. 

Luckily, an A/C tune-up from Cerrone Plumbing, Heating & HVAC can increase your unit’s efficiency, reduce your costs, and guarantee that you can go the summer months without any unexpected breakdowns. Give us a call today!
