5 Questions to Ask About Commercial Air Conditioning Installation

Investing in a new commercial HVAC system is a big financial commitment for almost any business. Before you sign a contract for the installation of a new system, ask these five questions to be sure you get a good deal.

1. Can You Trust the HVAC Company?

The first step in commercial air conditioning installation is to find a trustworthy HVAC company to carry out the work. You can ask other local business owners for recommendations or look for reviews and testimonials online. Look for a well-established company with plenty of experience in installing commercial air conditioning systems.

2. What Is the Right Commercial Air Conditioning System for Your Business?

A good HVAC company will help you to find the right commercial air conditioning system for your workplace. They should be willing to explain the factors that make a particular system suitable, such as the size of the space you need to cool, the aspect and insulation of the building and the control that you want your employees to have over the air conditioning controls. If the company suggests a one-size-fits-all air conditioning solution and it fits your needs, then they might be the right company to work with.

3. What Is the Warranty?

All air conditioning systems should come with a warranty that protects you against equipment failures while the system is still new. Be sure to find out how long the warranty lasts and whether it covers the whole system or only parts of it. Some HVAC companies offer extended warranties, which could be a good deal to help you avoid unexpected expenses.

4. Does the Company Offer a Maintenance Agreement?

Most commercial HVAC companies offer maintenance agreements, which entitle you to regular maintenance checks in exchange for a fee. Some agreements also cover repairs.

It is a good idea to get one of these agreements in place when the system is installed so that you know how much you have to budget for air conditioning maintenance going forward. Be sure to find out what the company's policy is on emergency repairs.

5. How Long Will Installation Take?

Installation of a ducted commercial air conditioning system can be quite disruptive, particularly if the technicians need to install ductwork or replace existing ducts. Find out in advance how long the installation will take so you can plan around it to minimise disruption to workflow.
