Prioritizing your new central air conditioning installation is important, particularly during the summer in Rhode Island when sitting in your home can become very uncomfortable. But, what do you do once you’ve purchased your new central air conditioner? Should you perform the installation yourself or leave it to the pros? Of course, the choice is yours. But, it’s strongly recommended you hire an HVAC professional to come and install your new AC unit — and here’s why.

1. They’re the Experts

With the various options and brands out there, choosing the best cooling unit for your house can be a bit challenging. A professional can help you choose an AC unit capable of cooling your entire home thoroughly. They can provide you with expert tips and advice to help you maintain your central AC unit efficiently, which can ensure its longevity. Their advice can also help you with meeting the air conditioner’s technical specifications.

2. Improved Efficiency and Longevity

You want your new central air conditioning system to last a long time without running into any large problems. This is where it can help to hire a pro. They’ll ensure it’s properly set up, so it won’t have any big issues down the road. Also, professional installation will help ensure efficiency, saving you money on your energy bill each month.

3. To Avoid Voiding your Warranty

You wouldn’t want to accidentally damage your AC system during a DIY installation and have it void your AC warranty. In this type of situation, when you’re tampering with your AC installation, you’re tampering with your warranty. Had you hired a professional to do the installation, your warranty would stay intact.

4. High Cost of Errors

All components involved in the air conditioner’s performance have equal roles to play. Damaging even one of these components could hamper the entire system. Unless you’re well-versed with each of the air conditioner’s components, your chances of damaging any of them during a DIY installation increase significantly. Several things can lead to expensive and dangerous consequences, such as:

  • Damaging a part
  • Cutting a necessary wire
  • Improper installation

The high cost of any error during the installation of your central air conditioning system isn’t worth you’re trying to save a few bucks by not hiring a professional Rhode Island HVAC technician to come and handle the installation.

5. Ensure Cool, Clean Air

The last reason why it’s a good idea to let the experts handle your central air conditioning installation is that they’re going to provide you with a level of quality you couldn’t provide yourself with a Do-It-Yourself AC install. This means your air conditioner will be able to keep consistent comfortable temperatures at all times, while ensuring the air in your home circulates throughout, providing you with clean air that’s free of allergens and dirt.
