Can I Replace My HVAC Unit By Myself?

If it is time to have your HVAC unit replaced, you may be curious if you can install your unit by yourself. Getting a new unit can help you save money on your energy bills and ensure that you have a long-lasting machine. It’s important to know that you never want to install it yourself.

Why You Should Never Replace your Unit Yourself

You may think that you know enough to install your HVAC unit. But there are many things that you have to know to do it right. This is why it is best always to have an HVAC company install your system for you. The first thing that an HVAC technician will do is make sure that the new unit is the right size for your home. If they install the wrong size unit into your home, it will not work as well. The technician will also make sure that your ductwork is correct. They may have to retrofit the new unit to work with your ductwork. They will also need to install a thermostat that will work with your HVAC unit. An HVAC technician knows all the rules and regulations when it comes to installing a new system. You have to follow several state and local laws when it comes to installing a new system. If it is not done right, you could face fines. Get a licensed HVAC company to install it.

Removing your Old System

Installing a new HVAC system is only half the job. Once you install a new system, you will need to remove the old system. Removal of old equipment can be tricky and very strenuous. You also have to figure out how to remove chemicals. For example, if there is any Freon in the air-conditioning unit, you will need to dispose of it the right way. The EPA has strict regulations on the disposal of this chemical.

Saving Money when Getting a New HVAC System
