Let’s face it, if you don’t have air conditioning during the summer, life may be rather miserable. If your home’s cooling system fails, you should replace it as soon as possible to avoid the discomfort or even intolerable heat that might result from its absence. But, there are certain things that you should be aware of and some preparations that you should make before having your new air conditioning system installed. With these preparations, installing an air conditioner in Singapore will go more smoothly, and your home will remain pleasant during the warm weather.
Ensure that the Location of the Installation is Reachable
The place where your air conditioning unit will be put must provide ample room as well as convenient access for the technicians installing it. This also involves having access to the region surrounding the boiler, where the evaporator coil will be put. Ensure that the outside area where the unit will be located and the area surrounding the boiler are clean and free of dirt before beginning the installation process. To install the low-voltage wiring that regulates the AC and the interconnecting tubing (a line set), technicians will need access to all locations between your boiler and the air conditioner. In addition, the high-voltage power supply and the main electrical panel should be straightforward for the technician to reach.
Choose the Appropriate System
The size of an air conditioner is an important consideration. A smaller unit won’t be able to chill your complete home if you have a larger one, but a larger one will consume more energy than necessary. Both of these options are inefficient and can be expensive, so it is crucial to select a system that is proportionate to the size of your home. A competent HVAC expert will be able to run a load assessment and provide you with an estimate of the ideal size for your new unit. But keep in mind that the size of your new unit can be different from the size of the one you had before.
Find Out More About the New Air Conditioner and How It Was Installed
Following the selection of your new system and before installing your air conditioning, you should educate yourself as much as possible on the installation procedure and your new system. A specialist will often carry out the installation procedure, and its conclusion will take a couple of hours at most. In spite of the fact that the technician will be busy throughout the installation, you should make sure to ask them for an overview of your unit and thermostat (if the thermostat is being changed), as well as any necessary maintenance. The more you understand about your system and the maintenance it needs, the better it will continue to function properly.
