The day of the installation is the most important day in the life of any HVAC system. Choosing the right sized unit and proper installation accounts for almost 80 percent of the performance and operating efficiency of any system. Its reliability, safety and efficiency are directly related to a proper HVAC installation. Prior to the installation of any new system, a load calculation should be done to ensure the system is properly sized for the square footage of your home. When you are spending thousands of dollars on a new system, you want to make sure that you are getting the right equipment for your specific needs and a guarantee that the system will perform to your expectations in Port Neches TX.
It’s important that any HVAC installation in Port Neches be done by a certified installer. If you attempt to do the HVAC installation yourself, the manufacturer will void its warranty. Without a warranty, you could be facing some hefty repair costs down the road. In addition, there are local, state and federal guidelines that must be in compliance with the laws. If the guidelines aren’t followed, the entire job will have to be redone. This can interfere with attaining homeowner’s insurance and the future resale of a home.

Our skilled technicians follow a comprehensive list of procedures for HVAC installation in Port Neches to ensure the system is properly connected and operates at peak performance. During the welding procedures, the nitrogen is purged through the coil and copper tubing to maximize refrigerant flow. The system is evacuated with service caps to prevent moisture from entering which prevents compressor failure. A leak test is done to to ensure the refrigerant system is leak free. Any system with insufficient amounts of refrigerant lessens the lifespan of the unit, uses more energy and has decreased capacity.
New refrigerant lines are used on every installation. Previous lines always contain contaminants that can lead to restrictions and blockages that cause premature failure of the system. Every system is evacuated with new oil to attain the proper vacuum level without moisture. Separate manifold gauges are used for all refrigerants. Refrigerants are never mixed as it is akin to mixing different blood types and never works. Copper tubing is cut with a sharp wheel to prevent any foreign bodies from entering the refrigerant line system. Restrictions can lead to equipment failure and decreased capacity of the system. The refrigerant is added to the line at just the right pressure so the system can be changed from a negative pressure to a positive pressure. This is to ensure that no outside air enters upon startup.
The air flow on the indoor unit is matched with the system air flow through variable speed switches. This is one of the most important tasks for startup. If the startup settings are incorrect, the system cannot charge accurately to achieve proper temperature rise and drop. Our technicians utilize the manufacturer’s guidelines to properly set the charge on the system. This guarantees efficiency and maximum performance. All of the heating elements are staged so that the system only uses the energy that is needed. As a result, it saves you hundreds of dollars on energy costs. In Port Neches, our HVAC installation is guaranteed, efficient and complete.
