Factors to Consider When Choosing the Best HVAC Services Tampa
Three parts have been divided in the installation of AC. The first is installation of the indoor unit which involves a considerable amount of steps like; selection of an unobstructed location on the interior wall to mount the indoor air conditioning unit, securing of the mounting plate to the interior wall and creation of hole to fit in the piping among others. The dos and don’ts in selection of an unobstructed location on the interior wall to mount the indoor air conditioning unit are many.
Avoiding direct sunlight and heat sources, installing the unit at least one meter away from the antenna, connecting lines, power, radio, television, telephones etcetera, the wall should be strong enough to hold the weight of the unit and avoiding locations where oil mist exists or gas may leak are some of the dos and don’ts during selecting a unobstructed location of mounting plate.
Securing the mounting plate to the interior wall is the next sub step in which has some series of steps. Holding the mounting plate against the wall, using a level to make sure the plate is horizontally level, drilling holes into the wall at appropriate spots to affix the plate to the wall and finally inserting plastic anchors into the holes are the steps of securing the mounting plate to the interior wall. So as to fit the piping then a hole is created. Finding the best spot for the hole to the exterior based on the opening in the mounting bracket, drilling a hole that has a diameter of about eight centimeters through the wall in which the slope should be downward toward the exterior and finally inserting a flexible flange into the hole are the procedures of creating a hole in the wall for piping.
Lifting the unit’s front panel, removing the cover and being sure the cable wires are connected to the screw terminals is under the process of checking the electrical connection. Pipes are connected using some key steps. Connection of pipes involves a lengthy procedure in which finally the drainage pipe allows water to drain in an appropriate place.
By pressing the unit against the mounting plate results to securing of the indoor unit to the mounting plate. Installation of the outdoor condenser is the second step in AC installation. Choosing the best place to the outdoor unit which also involves choosing the outdoor unit location needs away from any hot, trafficked areas and having a considerable space that ensures proper functioning is involved in installation of an outdoor unit. In order that installation of the outdoor unit is done then leveling and laying of the ground is done using a concrete pad. The height of the concrete pad is needed to be high enough.
