1. Hiring Inexperienced HVAC Technicians

One of the easiest HVAC installation mistakes to avoid is hiring inexperienced HVAC technicians. While it might seem like a good idea to hire a new HVAC company or find the cheapest services available, hiring HVAC technicians without experience can put your system at risk for faulty installation.

2. Purchasing a Cheap System

It can be tempting to purchase the cheapest system on the market. However, HVAC systems are not a feature of your home where you should be frugal. Research quality options that fit a flexible budget to find the perfect combination of price and efficiency.

3. Picking an Incorrectly Sized System

Choosing the wrong size system can be highly detrimental to your home. Remember that your unit has to fit in a defined space both within and outside your home. Should this unit be too big or too small, you’ll have to buy a new one sooner than you want.

4. Poor Air Distribution Design

The effectiveness of an HVAC system is really about the ductwork that distributes air throughout your home. Ensure that you review the ductwork design with a qualified professional technician so that you install an efficient unit.

5. Faulty Draining System

Functioning HVAC units produce water waste that requires a draining system to divert it from your home. If the draining system in your new unit is faulty or inadequate, leaks can quickly cause expensive water damage to your home.

6. Having the Wrong Size Exhaust

Like draining water, HVAC systems produce toxic gasses. Choosing a system with an incorrectly sized exhaust could cause these fumes to accumulate and threaten your family’s health and safety.

7. Placing the Unit Near Obstructions

Although HVAC units aren’t exactly beautiful features, attempting to conceal them can impede your system’s functioning. Placing your unit near obstructions like trees and foliage can cause blockages and limit airflow in your home. Limited airflow also raises utility bills due to decreased efficiency.

8. Cheap Replacement Parts

Like a cheap system, attempting to amend a failed system with the cheapest available parts is never a good idea. Since your HVAC system is crucial to your home, consider suitable replacements.
