If you’re looking to provide your customers with a comprehensive HVAC service, you need to offer high-quality installation services as well. Properly installing an HVAC system in your customers’ homes or commercial properties will see them reap some benefits that come from a heating and cooling system that’s been installed by professionals to operate at maximum capacity.
Also, if you’re looking to make the installation part of your HVAC business as efficient as possible, you need to provide instructions to your clients on the little things they need to take care of prior to installation, in order to make the entire process as smooth as possible.
What is the importance of quality HVAC installation?
As important as it is to provide your clients with an HVAC system that has all the features that suit the needs of their home or commercial property, it’s equally important to perform quality HVAC installation. A good installation guarantees the following three benefits:
- Efficiency – If the system is not installed per manufacturer’s specifications, it will not operate at 100% capacity, and it will not be as efficient as it should be. This means that even though your customers have chosen their HVAC system taking into consideration the EER, AFUE, HSPF, and SEER ratings, their system will not function anywhere near the projected manufacturer’s ratings. An improperly installed HVAC system can decrease efficiency up to 30%.
- Comfort – When the HVAC installation isn’t as professional as it should be, the performance issues of the HVAc system translate into bad comfort control. Botched installation means that the system is not able to heat or cool sufficiently, which will make it difficult to maintain desirable temperatures throughout the home or office space. Faulty installation makes it very difficult to have adequate control over your system’s operations.
- Service life – If you do not install your customer’s HVAC system well, it is far more likely that the unit will fail a lot earlier and more frequently than expected. Bad installation will make the internal components wear out faster, which will cause internal breakdowns. This will cost your clients money, and you time doing repairs.
How should your customers prepare for HVAC installation?
The majority of the HVAC installation job falls on the dealer’s shoulders. However, there are two minor things you should ask your customers to do in order to make the entire process transpire a lot faster.
- Permits – Sometimes, your customers might need additional permits for HVAC installation, so make sure you advise them to inform themselves and assemble all the necessary paperwork before you start work.
- Access – HVAC distributors say that unobstructed access to the site of the HVAC installation makes the job of their dealers a lot easier. Ask your clients to clean and empty the area where the unit will go inside, and to potentially trim the vegetation around the area where the exterior of the unit will go.
