We are March 29 and, without really realizing it, it turns out that spring has arrived. It’s not that I found out because the trees and plants have blossomed, or because my neighbors resuscitate their romantic spirit. No, the truth is that I have found out from the news and announcements that flood the television at this time.
The reason for wanting to talk about spring is that it is the prelude to summer and infernal heat, or La calor, which my grandmother used to say as a good Andalusian when referring to the suffering that, in our country, we all suffer during this time. And what is the best solution to quell sweat and hot heat? Indeed, the air conditioning.
I can assure you that this year I will install air conditioning at home, without a doubt that I will. They will not catch me off guard and that summer comes, which is the worst time to buy and install a computer. You visit any establishment or shopping center, which is invaded by human beings desperate to get rid of the sweltering heat, and ask for your desired air conditioning equipment. “Impossible, we do not have stock for four months”, “But if in four months it is autumn and the heat will have disappeared”, “There is nothing else I can do, gentleman. Would you like anithing else? Don’t you need a sadwich maker? ” The worst thing is when you’ve finally got the air conditioning. Simple, with an outdoor unit and an indoor unit, the normal thing, a kit for the living room, only for the living room, and that’s when they tell you, “the installation will not be possible for another 4 months”. Fall; it is a curse, of course.
You may think I’m joking, but this can happen if you want to buy an air conditioner during the summer months. It happened to me last year and I found only one installer who wanted to install me within fifteen days after he bought the equipment from me. Why didn’t I hire him? Because it charged me twice as much for the installation as the equipment had cost me. It seemed outrageous to me, but above all it seemed like a scam. When he sent me the budget, it did not specify any details, it only included as a concept “Air conditioning installation” and the amount thereof.
At the moment, and especially because of the fear that the heat will arrive again, my opinion is that what spring is for is to be proactive and buy and install the air conditioning equipment, without haste or stress. Now is when we have time to look for more options, since the demand is not as high as in summer.
So that the same thing as me does not happen to you and that you have the feeling that you are being cheated with the installation of the equipment, here are some tips and indications that you must take into account to know that the installation is correct and that you are not being charged more than it should.
What must be taken into account in an air conditioning installation?
The first thing is to know which equipment is best for you. Above all, it depends on the room in the house where you are going to locate it, but whatever it is, the most appropriate thing is that the equipment you buy is an inverter air conditioner . With this type of machine you will take advantage of multiple advantages such as energy savings that can be up to 50%, a quiet and relaxing environment, they cool the environment faster when you turn them on and even allow you to use only the energy necessary to maintain the temperature. chosen.
Keep in mind that if you already have pre-installation of a previous equipment, this can be used to install the new equipment, taking advantage of all the existing electrical connections, piping and pipes.
In the event that you have not had an air conditioning unit, the most important thing is to decide where to place the one you just purchased. It is essential that the indoor unit is as close to the outdoor unit as possible, in this way you will save on material. Another important aspect is to do everything possible so that it is oriented to the south, ensuring that the equipment receives as little heat as possible.
Demand that they give you a fully detailed budget in which all the work to be carried out and the material that will be needed are clearly indicated. The form of payment must be established in said budget.
With regard to the material, it must include at least the following: 3 meters of linear pipe, 1 meter of interior gutter, 3 meters of drain pipe, 3 meters of electrical hose, 1 set of wall mounting brackets and functional test in which you must be present to confirm that everything is in perfect condition.
Taking this information into account, it will be difficult for you to sin unsuspectingly and for them to get scammed, since at all times you will know what installation is going to be carried out and how much money it is going to cost you. We will avoid feeling cheated and being accompanied by the feeling that we have been robbed. Let’s not be naive and just enjoy our air conditioning until fall and winter arrive again.
