When it’s time for a new HVAC system for your commercial building, make sure you’re prepared for the installation process. What do you need to do to ensure you’re ready? Keep the following tips in mind for commercial HVAC installation.
Schedule a Suitable Time
Your HVAC installation should be done at a time which is most convenient for your employees, tenants, or customers. If your building will be without heating or air conditioning, find out about how long this will last for. You should also be prepared for any delays which could occur when your contractor is removing your old HVAC system and putting in the new one.
When you know about how long installation will take, schedule it for a time which won’t impact your employees or customers as much. If you have tenants, consider scheduling your installation during a weekday when many will be at work instead of at home.
Allow Easy Access to Work Areas
Your HVAC contractor will need to be able to easily get to work areas. Make sure these areas are clear of debris and other obstacles. For example, you might need to clear away vegetation in outdoor areas or keep gates unlocked.
Taking steps to ensure contractors can access work areas can help the installation process go more smoothly. Otherwise, your HVAC contractor will need to spend time waiting for you to make these areas accessible.
Clear Component Areas
Find out where your new HVAC components will be going, such as your new outdoor air conditioning unit or your new indoor air handler. You’ll need to make sure these areas are free of any clutter. Clearing out the area before installation occurs allows your contractor to conveniently reach these areas.
Ask Questions Beforehand
If you think of any questions you have about your commercial HVAC installation, reach out to your contractor beforehand. You should discuss any concerns you have and get your questions answered ahead of time. This helps ensure you and your HVAC contractor are on the same page, which helps lower the risk of any miscommunication.
