More than likely, you’ve heard or seen contractors of all sorts claim they will provide you with a quality installation. Whether you’re talking about a refrigerator, air conditioning unit, a washing machine or just about any other type of appliance, they’ll make the phrase “quality installation” almost seem like an advertising slogan. However, there’s actually an HVAC standard known as Quality Installation – and it’s very important that all of your contractor’s technicians conform to it.
What is QI?
Quality Installation, or QI, was created by the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) in conjunction with a wide range of industry leaders. The QI standard, which is recognized by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), was developed to ensure that contractors show a true commitment to providing quality installations of heating and cooling equipment.
Why is it so Important?
What this means for you as a consumer is that when you choose a contractor that conforms to the QI standard, you can rest assured that your air conditioner or heating system will be installed correctly the first time. This can save you as much as 30 percent on your heating and cooling costs because your system will be installed in the most energy efficient manner. If an installation is performed incorrectly, you’ll have to spend more money on repairs and your energy bill will be higher.
These are just a few of the ways you will benefit from work that conforms to the ACCA Quality Installation standard:
- Your system will be correctly sized to meet your needs.
- It will be properly connected to your home’s duct system.
- The system will provide proper airflow.
- It will have the right amount of refrigerant.
You’ll not only enjoy increased comfort and improved air quality, you’ll also see reduced operating costs. In addition, the lifespan of your system will be longer. Don’t risk being shortchanged by putting your trust in a contractor that doesn’t have your best interests in mind.
