Investing in an HVAC replacement is a big cost for any homeowner. It makes total sense that if you’re going to spend your hard earned money on a home improvement project, you want it done right. But most homeowners are not a licensed and certified HVAC professional. Without an experienced eye, you’ll have no clue whether work done is substandard or superb.
HVAC Installs Are Not Plug and Play
When you decide it is time to replace your HVAC system, a reputable HVAC contractor will always start by determining the size requirements. To do that, a home visit is necessary to inspect your home, complete a load calculation, and see if you need a smaller or larger size than your current equipment. If an HVAC contractor provides you with an install estimate over the phone or without fully walking the property, that’s a big red flag. Definitely get a second opinion!
One common misconception about HVAC replacements is that the better the equipment, the better the performance. It’s true that investing in a high-efficiency system will result in less energy bills, but the machine itself is just one piece in a bigger system.
Heating and cooling systems have many interrelated components. How these components are installed and work together is essential. Ductwork, drain lines, refrigerant piping, exhaust vents, internal dampers, electric components, and safety devices are just some of the miscellaneous pieces that must be connected and fitted with care.
So remember: home comfort systems are not like buying a refrigerator. You can’t necessarily swap out one air conditioner for another one of the same size. And, a great HVAC contractor will pay attention to every detail in the full heating and cooling system.

Our teams cleanly seal and test every connection. Components that require insulation, or wrapping will be completely covered end-to-end.

Here at McCullough, we train every one of our installation teams on best installation practices. We believe so strongly in a quality install that on every single HVAC replacement project, we send one of our veteran installers to do a quality check.

It’s why we feel confident in giving our customers a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
We also fuel our installation teams with a high-powered breakfast every Thursday. Our installers arrive with full bellies – and we really think some scrambled eggs and bacon is the key to a great install. Well… at least it’s an essential part of a happy and healthy team!
