Why HVAC System Installation Shouldn't Take All Day

Why HVAC System Installation Shouldn't Take All Day

How long does it take to install a HVAC system?

Installing a HVAC system is an expensive and complicated process. Hiring a professional can help. You’ll have to pay an hourly fee for labor, but the job will be done much faster than if you’d attempted to do it on your own. It will be performed with expertise and an advanced toolset as well, to protect against future problems.

DIY HVAC Installation

Typical do-it-yourselfers don’t schedule themselves enough time for HVAC installation, and they wind up working late into the night or having to wait until the next day to finish. These are complex machines, so it’s important to do the job right.

Unfortunately, for people without proper training, that can mean a serious amount of double-checking and trial-by-error. In the process, important steps can get passed over, such as:

  • Measuring the proper load for your ductwork
  • Sealing gaps and leaks
  • Moving vent locations
  • Properly setting and clearing drains

Some homeowners won’t even know how to figure load correctly; they’ll base the size of the unit they need solely on the size of their home.

These kinds of mistakes can cause serious problems, so if it takes several days to complete all the steps needed for an installation, DIY’ers should bite the bullet and work those hours into their schedules. Technicians who have professional training, tools, and experience can handle these responsibilities easily. They also have proven methods in place, allowing them to streamline the process.

How Much Does Your Time Mean to You?

Installing HVAC equipment yourself can help cut installation costs, as long as you know what you’re doing. If you don’t, you shouldn’t attempt it yourself instead choose to save a significant amount over the life of your system by hiring the job out. You’ll also be able to spend those hours having fun with friends and family, which often is worth it all on its own.
