Why an AC Installation is not a DIY job


Whether you consider yourself a DIY expert or someone who fixes small odd jobs around the house, there is a time and place for doing something yourself versus calling in the professionals.

A paint job – sure, you can do this yourself. Changing light bulbs and replacing door handles – simple DIY jobs. What about larger jobs though, like the installation of an air conditioning system?

When it comes to an AC installation, there are a few reasons why it is not a DIY job. In this article, we share a few reasons why it’s important that you call our pros for AC replacement in Santa Fe, NM

To start, you need to consider the old system.

A professional will remove your old AC system correctly

A professional has the right tools and knowledge to remove your old AC in a way that will not damage your home. They will know how to properly disconnect the old system and remove it without causing any damage or injuring anyone.

While it may seem simple, it’s quite a complex exercise as you need to have the experience in knowing how to take off piping, etc, and prepare everything for the new system.

They know how to reconnect the system

Professionals also know how to properly reconnect your new AC system. This is important as if it’s not done correctly, you could damage your new system or have one that is simply not functioning optimally.

If it needs to overwork because of a faulty installation, then you could find yourself with hefty monthly utility bills.

They’ll run the necessary tests

After the installation is complete, a professional will also know how to test your new system to ensure that it’s working properly. This includes making sure that there are no leaks and that the airflow is adequate.

They can also advise you on how to use your new system and what maintenance needs to be done to keep it running optimally.

You’ll have a professional warranty

When you have a professional install your AC, you will also have a warranty that you can rely on. This gives you peace of mind knowing that if something does go wrong, you’re covered.

If you were to install the system yourself, there would be no warranty which means that you would be putting yourself at risk. Consider the insurance issues if a fire were to start in your home due to self-installed faulty wiring.

A DIY job is simply not worth the risk when it comes to your AC installation. Not only could you cause damage to your home or injure yourself, but you could also end up with an inefficient system that ends up costing you more in the long run.

So, save yourself time, hassle, and money and call in the professionals for your AC installation.
