Here’s Why Installing an HVAC System is NOT a DIY

It is very easy as the owner of a home to have a pretense about what you can and cannot do from a do it yourself perspective. You may get these ideas in your head that you are more than capable of doing something such as installing a new HVAC system. You read about how to perform the tasks associated with it online, get the parts required, and go to work. The truth with the installation of something as complex as an HVAC Jacksonville system though is that there are so many variables. An expert indeed is required for something like this, and when you tart to go down the rabbit hole of attempting a project resembling this solo, you are opening yourself up to a lot of potential short and long-term issues.


Lots of Components


There are a lot of elements that go into the installation of an HVAC Jacksonville system. You need to have experience with everything from framing to plumbing, as well as electrical work. You need to know how to run ducts if they are not already in place, make sure that the wiring is there to get the electrical power necessary to the blower, to the actual unit outside.

The components that are included in a typical HVAC Jacksonville are the outdoor condenser unit, as well as the blower. You are going to have piping that is going to be needed to get the refrigerant line from outside to the inside of your home, as well as plumbing for a drain line. The running of the electrical wires is also going to be a complicated endeavor.

The biggest piece of the puzzle that can trip up a homeowner though is that of the running of the air ducts. Even if you already have air ducts, there are many other factors at play which can compromise the installation. If the ducts are not insulated, that can pose a problem. If the register is not big enough, you could also have air flow issues with the system.


Variables at Play


Plenty of variables is at play when taking on an HVAC Jacksonville installation on your own. When you are not an expert, you are not going to know what you should be looking out for when it comes to these types of systems. How do you know if the electrical box that you have is capable of handling the power needed for an HVAC system? Typically the company you hire with have an electrician that does this level of work for you.

The same goes for the air ducts. Even if you already have them, do you have the expertise to inspect them and be sure that they are going to be able to deliver the airflow necessary for the system? When you run into potential issues during the installation, how do you plan on adjusting?

Just had an entirely new, full HVAC install done at our old house in Riverside, which was a fairly big job. Brian and... Will did the installation, and were awesome. There was going to be issues leveling the air handler in the attic, so they moved it to a new spot and hung it instead, getting new parts/changing the plan on the fly. We're much happier with this new setup and location of the air handler. I really appreciated this, their professionalism/thoroughness, and flexibility. Brian and Will worked super-hard, and double-checked everything once the job was done. Would use this company more

Two installers here early this morning. Worked all day. Very professional, extremely well mannered and quick to answer... all my questions. They are Dustin and Robert. Both men went above just installing my new unit, they were personable and knowledgeable in what they were doing. I was surprised when I found out these two hadn't been working that long together. They worked extremely well together. I highly recommend this two more

A snake crawled into my outdoor condenser and stopped my 16 year old Trane last week on Thursday. The power surge took... out my blower unit circuit board and the motor. I called J&W and Rob was over within two hours of my call. I was spec'd a new York 17 seer system and it was up and running on Monday. Technicians Jason and Brian arrived promptly and every facet of the installation was thorough. When completed, I would not of even known they were there except they left my garage cleaner! Thanks J&W!read more
