As a business owner, there are a lot of things that would rank high on your list of needs for your facility. And while you may have the skills and manpower to handle the administrative work, there are certain technical aspects that you may need to outsource. One of such technical things is your air conditioning system. It is very easy to assume that this particular task simply involves you popping into a store, picking an air conditioner and getting it installed. But you would be quick to find that if you make any mistake in the air conditioner installation process, not only would you end up with a piece of equipment that does very little to meet your needs, you could end up spending more money in an attempt to try and salvage the situation.
To save you the stress, here is a comprehensive list to point you in the right direction and keep you on track. Follow it and it would be very difficult to get it wrong.
- Talk to the professionals
Most people think that the first step in air conditioner installation is going shopping. Wrong. Before you start thinking of an AC, you need to figure out if you even need an air conditioner in the first place. Sometimes, what may seem like an obvious solution for the layman could portend disaster and that disaster may not happen right away. But you end up paying the price somewhere along the line. Your building or facility manager can talk to you about your options. And if they recommend getting your building hooked up to an air conditioner, you can proceed to step 2.
- Choose the right units for your needs
Again, you should be speaking to the professionals but a different set of professionals this time around…the air conditioner installer. These are the guys who would look at the space that you have, the budget you are working with and the way your electrical wirings have been set up. And then based on their findings, they would make recommendations on the kind of air conditioner that best meets your need. For the best results, you need to go to a company with the right level of expertise, experience and the willingness to go the extra mile. Apex will help you choose the right unit for your needs and then provide you with a full quote which would also include air conditioner installation prices.
- Now you can go shopping
At this point, you have more than just a fairly decent idea of what type of air conditioner is best for you. Therefore, you wouldn’t find the numerous market options for air conditioners that intimidating at all. Take the specifications that you have been given and make a purchase. If you would rather play a passive role in this phase, there are ways around this.
- Let Apex install the unit for you
The air conditioner installation process can be tedious unless it is handled by a team of efficient professionals. Apex will arrange a date and time to come and install your new unit. We will do this to ensure minimal disruption to your regular business routine and even lesser interference in the work being done by your employees. In other words, we would do our very best to ensure that our presence is barely felt. Upon completion of the job, we would give you a full rundown on how to use the unit.
- Contact us for maintenance
The air conditioner installation process does not end after you have paid off the guys who installed the air conditioner for you. This final step on this list is important enough to determine how long your air conditioners last and how efficiently they would function for you in that duration. After your unit has been installed, maintenance will need to be performed at least once a year (the schedule would depend on a number of factors like the type of business you run and the type of unit installed). Apex can perform all maintenance and repair services as needed.
