Installing a new air conditioning or heat pump system is a significant investment that can greatly improve your home’s comfort and energy efficiency. However, ensuring a smooth installation process requires proper preparation and planning. 

At Command Comfort, we understand the importance of a hassle-free installation, which is why we’ve put together these 5 essential tips to help you get ready for installation day. By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your air conditioning installation in Costa Mesa goes smoothly.

Tip 1: Do Research on Choosing the Right AC Unit

Choosing the correct air conditioning unit for your home is crucial. An improperly sized unit can lead to inefficiencies, higher energy bills, and reduced comfort. When choosing an AC unit, we can help you make a decision based on the size of your home, your budget, and your comfort preferences.

Our HVAC professionals will perform a load calculation to determine the appropriate size and type of unit for your specific needs. That’s why we offer comprehensive consultations to help you choose the perfect AC system that balances performance and cost-effectiveness.

Tip 2: Hire a Qualified HVAC Company

The quality of your AC installation significantly impacts the unit’s performance and longevity. Therefore, hiring a qualified, experienced HVAC company is essential. At Command Comfort, our Certified Technicians are licensed, insured, and our company has positive reviews from previous clients. We prioritize customer satisfaction and ensure that every installation is completed to the highest standards.

Tip 3: Prepare the Installation Area

Before the installation date, it’s important to prepare the area where the AC unit will be installed. Clear any obstructions and ensure that there is adequate space for us to work. This might include moving furniture or trimming grass/bushes to make space for the outdoor unit. Be sure to clear your schedule for the day and keep pets and children out of the work area for their safety.

Tip 4: Understand the Installation Process

Being informed about the installation process can help you better prepare and set realistic expectations. Typically, the installation process involves removing the old unit (if applicable), preparing the site, installing the new unit, and testing it to ensure it operates correctly. Communicate with our Certified Technicians to understand each step of the process and ask any questions you might have. 

Tip 5: Plan for Maintenance and Upkeep

Once your new AC unit is installed, regular AC maintenance is key to keeping it running efficiently and prolonging its lifespan. Simple tasks such as changing filters every 1-3 months go a long way toward boosting the performance of your new system.

We recommend scheduling professional maintenance visits once a year for central AC systems and twice a year for heat pumps and mini splits. During these visits, one of our Certified Technicians will perform a thorough inspection, clean the components, and address any potential problems before they escalate. We offer affordable maintenance plans that make it easy to keep your system in top condition.

If you’re ready to schedule an installation or have any questions, remember we’re here to help you command your comfort.
