What to Count on When Changing an HVAC System

The Florida based heating, cooling and air conditioning company is pleased to release a concise, practical guide to upgrading an HVAC system as a service to the public.

ORLANDO, FL / ACCESSWIRE / November 4, 2021 / According to industry consensus, domestic heat pumps need to be replaced about every 15 years, while air conditioners have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years and stoves have about the same length of time. Although their functionality is relatively long, a household’s HVAC systems, like all appliances, eventually become ineffective and need to be replaced. For homeowners who have never experienced it, replacing an HVAC system can seem like a daunting prospect. That’s why, as part of its ongoing campaign to better educate the public on all issues related to heating, ventilation and air conditioning, Orlando Air Conditioning Experts presents a concise, practical guide to what to expect when replacing an air conditioning system.

Preliminary rating

After selecting a reputable HVAC replacement contractor, homeowners can expect them to perform a preliminary property appraisal. The contractor will spend some time measuring the square footage and making load calculations based on the climate of the site, the size of the property and the household’s ability to absorb conditioned air. Based on all of this information, the contractor will recommend a size and type of replacement HVAC system and may also suggest some repairs to the plumbing or the home’s outer shell. The recommended HVAC upgrade may include strengthening the attic or crawl space insulation, resealing certain windows and doors, or fixing cracks or external breaks that could allow air to escape from the structure.

During the actual replacement, the contractor’s crew will need unrestricted access to all areas of the property that house HVAC systems – typically areas such as basements, attics, and crawl spaces. They then cut power to the affected systems, remove all traces of refrigerant from air conditioners, and then disassemble and remove the old HVAC equipment. Depending on the preliminary evaluation and scope of the project, some of the contractor’s crew may begin duct repair or replacement while others begin assembling the new HVAC equipment. If piping is involved, it could lengthen the process and likely result in workers finding their way through attics and crawl spaces.

The story goes on

Newly installed HVAC components can include the indoor air handler or evaporator, the outdoor compressor or condensing unit, new refrigerant supply lines, condensate drain lines, and sometimes the condensate pump. It’s also worth noting that, with a few exceptions, a new thermostat will also be fitted, precisely matched to the new HVAC system. While most HVAC contractors are qualified to upgrade the wiring and circuit breakers during a typical HVAC installation, the services of a licensed electrician should be enlisted when major changes to the property’s electrical system and circuitry are required.

While this may sound like many complicated steps, most HVAC system replacements can be completed in a single day, barring the preliminary assessment. However, some more advanced installations could extend the duration to a day and a half or possibly two.
