Actually installing a heating system is a difficult procedure, and not one that you should attempt without extensive professional knowledge. That being said, you can make your HVAC technician’s job a lot easier by taking a few steps beforehand. Take a look at the steps below to find out how you can facilitate the installation of your heating system.
Proper Unit Size
The first thing you’ll want to do is pick a unit that is the proper size for your home. A unit that is too small will constantly struggle to heat your home, consuming more fuel and costing you money. It will also likely leave uncomfortable cold spots in your house. A unit that is too large will produce more heat than it can use. This lost heat will also cost you money every time the heat runs for a while. A unit that is too large will also “short-cycle” by turning on and off repeatedly. This causes more wear and tear in the long term. Picking a properly sized unit is the first step in ensuring that your heating system is energy efficient.
Make Plans to Stay Warm
It may seem obvious, but if you’re planning to install a new heating system during the winter, you may get uncomfortably cold. If you know it’s likely to be cold on the day your installation is scheduled, plan out how you’re going to stay warm. Blankets, well-insulated clothes, lighting fireplaces, even some hot drinks can make your time without central heating more comfortable.
Clear Enough Space to Work
Installing a heating system tends to involve moving a lot of heavy equipment. Before your professional installer gets there, be sure to clear enough space for them to work safely and quickly. Walkways should be open, as well as the site of installation itself. By doing this, you ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.
