Bradley Mechanical HVAC Installation Process

First, we make sure to braze the outdoor and indoor coils. This way we can purge the system with nitrogen to prevent oxidation. This step is very important because it prevents contaminants from restricting refrigerant flow. When contaminants are present in your cooling line it can cause clogging of the compressor, expansion valves, and other components that often lead to premature AC system failure. Therefore we take great care during the install process to ensure the longevity and efficiency of your new air conditioning unit.

Second, we make sure your system is pressurized correctly. Pressurizing with nitrogen at the right levels will allow the system to remain dry and clear of contaminations during the AC installation process.

Third, we perform a vacuum of your system to remove further water and moisture. This is where most HVAC technicians fail to do their due diligence. This step is especially important because it prevents the refrigerant from mixing with moisture in the air, which can cause your system to “freeze-up”. If this process happens due to improper vacuuming, significant damage to your expansion valves or cap tube will take place. In addition to this, whenever refrigerants and moisture mix, it causes a chemical reaction to take place. This reaction creates acids that can corrode and form deposits in critical areas of your system causing it to fail.

At Bradley Mechanical, we take great care in the work we do when we install new HVAC equipment. Call today to learn more about how we can help you with a new air conditioning system!
