Are you interested in installing a ductless HVAC system in your Boston home? Are you familiar with the benefits, but unsure of how to get started? Are you beginning to wonder if this is a DIY job?

While you can find answers to most general questions about ductless HVAC systems online, there’s no replacement for consulting with a qualified contractor. With a professional on your side, you never have to worry about mistakes that could cost you time and money, both now and in the future.

In addition to someone who can answer all your questions and address all your concerns, here are some of the other things that a qualified ductless HVAC system contractor brings to your project.

1. Warranty

Did you know that installing your own ductless HVAC system typically results in voiding the warranty? Subsequently, if something goes wrong that otherwise would have been covered, you’ll be on the hook for paying out of pocket.

Conversely, when you work with a contractor, your warranty will remain intact. You hope you never have to make a warranty claim, but it’s nice to know that it is available to you.

2. System Sizing

Just the same as central air conditioning, choosing the right size ductless HVAC system is critical.

Install a system that’s too small and it’ll be overloaded and unable to perform efficiently. Just the same, if you install a system that’s too big and powerful, you’ll waste energy (and spend money on electricity that you could have saved).

There is more to choosing the right size system than meets the eye. Not only do you have to take into consideration the current size of your home, but you also need to think about the future. Do you have the desire to add to your system down the road, such as if you finish your attic or basement space?

3. Detailed Knowledge

It’s true that it’s easier and more time efficient to install a ductless HVAC system, as compared to central air, but that doesn’t mean anyone can do it.

An experienced contractor is one who knows the installation process inside and out. They know what to do, what not to do, and how to avoid costly mistakes.

For example:

  • Mishandling electronic parts can result in a system malfunction
  • Proper sealing is necessary for peak energy efficiency
  • Placement of the outdoor unit and indoor air handlers

Final Thoughts

On top of everything else, a qualified ductless HVAC contractor can complete your project in a timely manner. If you do the job yourself, it can take much longer to reach the finish line. And when you finally do, you’ll never know if everything was properly installed.
