Philadelphia’s Top HVAC Installation Team 

Replacing your home’s HVAC unit is a big investment that can improve your comfort, increase energy efficiency, and reduce utility bills. At Green Heating, Cooling, & Electric, we understand that the process can seem daunting. To help you prepare, here’s a detailed overview of what to expect when replacing your HVAC unit.

1. Initial Consultation and Assessment

The first step in replacing your HVAC unit is to schedule an initial consultation with one of our professional HVAC technicians. During this visit, we will assess your current system, evaluate your home’s heating and cooling needs, and discuss your preferences and budget. This assessment helps determine the best type and size of HVAC unit for your home, ensuring optimal efficiency and performance.

2. Choosing the Right HVAC System

After the assessment, you’ll receive recommendations on suitable HVAC systems. Factors to consider include:

  • Energy Efficiency: Look for units with high SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings for cooling and high AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) ratings for heating.
  • System Type: Decide between central air conditioning, heat pumps, ductless mini-splits, or other systems based on your home’s layout and climate.
  • Features: Consider additional features like variable-speed motors, smart thermostats, and air purification systems that enhance comfort and efficiency.

3. Preparing for Installation

Once you’ve selected your new HVAC system, the next step is to prepare for installation. This involves:

  • Scheduling the Installation: Coordinate with our HVAC company to choose a convenient date and time for the installation.
  • Clearing the Area: Ensure that the area around your existing HVAC unit is clear of any obstacles to provide easy access for our technicians.
  • Temporary Adjustments: Plan for temporary adjustments to your heating and cooling needs, as your HVAC system will be offline during installation.

On the day of installation, here’s what you can expect:

  • Removal of the Old Unit: We will carefully remove your old HVAC unit, taking precautions to avoid damage to your home.
  • Installing the New Unit: The new HVAC system will be installed, which may involve connecting ductwork, wiring, and refrigerant lines. If needed, new ductwork may be installed or existing ducts modified.
  • System Testing: After installation, we will test the new system to ensure it operates correctly and efficiently. We will check for proper airflow, refrigerant levels, and thermostat calibration.

5. Post-Installation Steps

After the installation, several steps are taken to ensure your new HVAC system functions optimally:

  • System Walkthrough: We will provide a walkthrough of your new system, explaining how to operate it and pointing out any new features.
  • Maintenance Tips: You’ll receive maintenance tips to keep your system running efficiently, such as changing filters regularly and scheduling annual tune-ups.
