Service Experts is dedicated to providing you with efficient, honest, fast, and high-quality service; keep reading to find out more about why we are the right choice for all your HVAC needs.

Proper Installation

Even the most efficient HVAC system cannot provide the performance you expect when it is not properly installed. Studies performed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology indicate that HVAC performance can suffer by up to 30% due to improper installation. Thus, you could end up paying 30% more than you expect for servicing your furnace or air conditioner if you work with an unqualified HVAC professional. At Service Experts, we are committed to providing you with top line quality of HVAC installation, repairs, and maintenance available. All work performed by Service Experts is backed by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee*. Our qualified service professionals have experience installing all HVAC brands and models, ensuring that no matter which type of new HVAC system you choose for your home, we’ll know how to install it properly so you can get the heating and cooling efficiency you expect.

Seasonal Considerations

As the temperature continues to dip, it’s important to protect your new cooling system. The holidays can be hard on air conditioners, potentially causing harm before you ever get to change your thermostat’s dial to “cool.” While other HVAC installation professionals might not consider winterization an important part of new system installation, Service Experts knows better. When our NATE-certified professionals install your new air conditioner, we will also take the time to properly winterize the system so you won’t need to worry that your brand new system might have problems caused by winter weather when you want to once again start cooling your house in the spring. We will ensure that your new air conditioner and the outdoor area around it is clean. We will also drain any moisture from the compressor to prevent freezing and check that the system is either naturally protected from debris or securely covered with a tarp. All outdoor connections and venting for your HVAC system will be reviewed and sealed to stop cold air from coming in your home and heated air from getting out. At the time of your installation, we’ll also verify the integrity of your home’s ductwork and do any maintenance or repairs we see to prevent drafts and warm air loss as your furnace heats air and administers it throughout your house.
