Have you decided it’s time to get a new HVAC system installed for your business? Are you feeling nervous about the upcoming installation for it?

It’s okay, it’s natural to feel nervous. However, at the end of the day, a properly installed new commercial HVAC system will effectively serve your company for years. The key to feeling less nervous about the process is to get properly prepared for it. That way, you can help your hired HVAC technicians as fast and efficiently as possible and get your system, whether it’s your commercial air conditioner for an apartment building or a new refrigerator for your business, going.

If you need help getting ready, this is a good place to start. Here are a few ways to familiarize yourself with the commercial HVAC installation process and how to make sure your building has the best possible environment for the new system.

  1. Double-check Everything Beforehand

New HVAC systems need to work within your company building’s existing space as well as the ductwork (depending on what kind of system you’re getting). In addition, the size of each unit, big or small, must be adequate enough that it will fulfill your company’s needs.

These are a few technical details that you absolutely need to double-check on before contacting an HVAC company. If the ducts aren’t leak-free, these will need to be addressed and fixed before any installations can take place. Otherwise, your new system will have to work harder to cool down or heat up the rest of the building. Size is also an important factor of all HVAC systems, so double-check with your technician team in order to ensure the choice you made is the best and most correct size and capacity for the job.

  1. Schedule a Convenient Date and Time

It’s important to note that while you are getting new commercial HVAC installed, your building will be going without central cooling or heating while the installation is taking place. So, the best time to schedule your new HVAC with your trusted team depends on the temperature outside as well as the day when disruption to tenants, customers, or employees is low in terms of noise and technicians being around.

If it’s hot outside, it’s best to schedule the installation on a weekend if at all possible if your building is an office or similar commercial building. If the job is being done for an apartment building, it may be best to schedule it during the week when most tenants are less likely to be present at home. Doing so can prevent tenants or staff to feel uncomfortably warm or cold inside until the new HVAC system is installed and running perfectly.

  1. Notify Everyone About What’s Happening

Whether there are employees or tenants in your building, you need to let them know ahead of time about the upcoming installation. Doing so will lower the chance of mishaps, unnecessary delays with installing the commercial HVAC, and even injuries.

Put up signs near any areas where employees or tenants should avoid in order to allow your HVAC team to go back and forth as required. If your employees need to be around during installation, they can bring in a desk fan or wear warmer clothing to stay cool or warm since the building will be without A/C or heating that day. Informing apartment tenants can give them a chance to make other arrangements as needed. They can make plans during the installation process if it’s hot or cold out so they don’t have to stay uncomfortable.

  1. Make Some Room for Your Technician Team

Once you’ve discussed and scheduled a good date and time with your HVAC team, you then need to ensure nothing gets in the way of their work. Otherwise, your team may not be able to do what’s needed to get the job done.

Remove all valuable assets out of the room if the installation is taking place inside. Clear the space around where the team will be working. Get any yardwork done beforehand if the new installation is a condenser and needs to be placed outside near trees and bushes. Make sure these plants are not too close to where the new condenser will be placed; there should be three to four feet of clearance all around. If you were informed to have your ducts replaced before the new system is installed, make sure that prep work is done before this job.

Doing all of this beforehand will ensure you have given your HVAC team a clear path, which reduces the risk of accidents and ensures that the job will be done fast and efficiently.
