Getting a new AC unit installed can be a confusing and frustrating experience. This video breaks down furnace and ac installation so that you have a better idea of what’s going on when your HVAC utilities are being put into place.
Duct work is very important. An industrial vacuum is used to suck the dust out of where the existing duct work for the HVAC ventilation. The duct work is then sealed to make sure no dust and dirt creep back in.
The gas furnace is installed on the inside of the house, along with a cooling coil for AC. An AC condenser is installed on the outside. Newer condensers have very high SEER ratings compared to old models, meaning a lot more efficiency and lower energy bills.
The last thing to do is to vent the furnace. Modern furnaces use dual-stage heat exchangers to keep the heat trapped in longer, which is better for efficiency. Old furnaces would expel much of the heat which caused a lot of heat to be lost.
