Take it from me, make sure you contact your HVAC control prior to getting a new HVAC replacement.
- Otherwise, you could be in for quite a surprise.
When the HVAC tech told me to that our old HVAC unit was nearing the end, I took him at his word. The HVAC people we use are excellent and have always delivered expert service at fair prices. So, I had not question that we indeed needed to start thinking about replacing the HVAC. For one thing, it was well over 20 years old and was running more than it ever had just trying to meet heating & cooling demands. However, I balked at the idea of setting up an appointment with the HVAC contractor. The HVAC technician suggested I do that and I sort of shrugged it off. I figured I’d just do some research and then pick a model for the HVAC upgrade. I mean how hard could it be. I had the specs for the old HVAC that I could use to replace it right? Well, that is in fact exactly how I handled it. We saved for nearly a year and I purchased the HVAC replacement directly and had it shipped to our HVAC company. At that point, the HVAC contractor did come out to prep for the installation. When he go to doing his inspection, he promptly found that our air ducts were not going to work with the new HVAC unit. They were pretty much shot. This stopped everything. Now we had to come up with a new plan to replace the air ducts first. Had I engaged the HVAC contractor initially, that would have never happened.
