For proper functioning, HVAC units must be installed according to the manufacturer’s specs. Furthermore, if the unit is not installed by professionals, the warranty will be invalid.
When an HVAC is not properly installed, parts wear out sooner, resulting in more repairs than normal. In the end, you may end up spending more on repairs than you would have on a professional installation.
It’s important to note that most states require credentials that prove the HVAC technician is licensed and has expertise in the HVAC industry.
In Texas, HVAC companies receive their license through the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. Licensed technicians or companies must also have proper liability insurance.

Depending on the size of the unit and your home, an HVAC installation may take more than one day. You certainly don’t want the technicians to rush and risk making a critical error. Most of the time, the process won’t go beyond a few days.

Installation day is exciting. You’re getting a new, more efficient HVAC that will keep your Austin, TX, home comfortable year-round.

You’ll be required to have the installation approved by a city inspector and obtain a permit. The cost of the permitting process may already be included in the installation price. Later, you can expect a city inspector to come to your home to make sure the HVAC installation meets current building codes in the area.
The key to extending the lifespan and efficiency of your new HVAC is routine maintenance by licensed HVAC professionals. At SALT, we recommend scheduling a maintenance check at least once a year, or twice a year if the unit is used year-round for both heating and air conditioning.
Routine maintenance is a preventative measure. During the process, our technician is able to identify and repair potential problems that could lead to major repairs later. Also, many HVAC manufacturers require proof of routine maintenance to keep your warranty valid.
To ensure that your new HVAC keeps your home cool and comfortable during the searing Austin, TX, heat, don’t forget to schedule a maintenance check with us before the temperatures start rising.
