About New HVAC Installation and Repair in Fresno, CA

You’ve made the decision to install a new HVAC system and you need to know what it involves. Whether this is the first time you’ve dealt with HVAC installation or it’s been awhile since the last installation, it’s a good idea to know what to expect and how to get started.

Hiring a Contractor Versus Installing It Yourself

This is a key step in the buying and installation process. If you purchase the system from a big box home improvement center, chances are, they will have on-site licensed and certified staff to handle installation.

If you’re in the position where you must hire a private contractor, you only want someone who is licensed by the state. A state certified contractor has the knowledge and expertise to handle the installation safely, efficiently and to the state standards.

Hiring a contractor who does not retain the proper license can lead to a system that is not installed properly, does not meet the state standard, can void the system warranty, and be grounds for your insurance company to cancel your policy. You can check the status of any contractor using the search tool at the Contractor’s State License Board website.

An experienced and certified contractor will be able to calculate the sizing needs for the system and explain the different ratings such as SEER and HSPF. Your contractor can also explain the advantages and disadvantages of the types of HVAC systems that include multi split AC, a ductless AC system, split heating air conditioning, hybrid heat split and packaged heating and air conditioning systems.

HVAC Permits Needed in Fresno

The City of Fresno requires a permit to be pulled for HVAC installation or replacement. You can apply online or visit the county building located at 2220 Tulare Street, 6th floor. For questions, call (559) 600-4078.

Checklist of What to Look for in an HVAC System

If a new system is being installed to a property that has not previously had an HVAC system, you’ll need to factor in the cost of insulation and its installation. This may, or may not, be handled by the same contractor. For example, if you choose to have insulation blown in versus traditional rolled insulation, it may require a contractor who specializes in this method.

With a new system, your contractor or the HVAC representative where you are purchasing the equipment will be able to guide you on the size of HVAC system needed. This is based on the square footage of the building. You can use online tools to do a free estimate so you can compare your estimate to what the contractor or representative suggests.

For property that currently has a HVAC that is being replaced, you’ll want to consider replacing the old insulation with new. Insulation can become damaged from water drips, insects or wildlife that has made its way into the attic. In an older home, it’s possible the amount of insulation isn’t adequate and needs replacing.

It is recommended that you do not replace an existing HVAC system with the same size system without first double-checking the appropriate size needed. If the current system is not large enough to support the square footage of the property, it won’t work efficiently plus the system will work harder trying to accommodate the space. This puts unnecessary wear and tear on the equipment that could result in costly repairs.

On the reverse side, if the current system is too small for the area, your property will not reach a level of comfortable coolness or warmth and your over-worked system will likely result in breakage and repairs.

Return of Investment

As a property owner, any time you can increase the value of your property is an advantage to you in the real estate market. Whether you have plans to sell now or in the future, the installation of a new HVAC system bumps up the market value. Buyers interested in older homes will find the upgrade to a newer and more efficient system a major plus when making a final decision. An up-to-date and environmentally friendly system also has a positive effect on the planet, which is another selling point to buyers interested in a “green” lifestyle.

Resources for Financing a New HVAC System in Fresno

Private resources are always an option if you aren’t planning on paying cash or using a credit card. Alternate options include bank loans, private lender loans, and home equity loans. The state of California is active in its support of property improvements as well as the government’s support of energy efficient programs. Three websites to research for information about potential financial programs, incentives, rebates and tax credits are the U.S. Department of Energy, Energy Efficient Programs in California and Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE).
