Some homeowners wonder why an HVAC installation needs professional installation. However, if a warranty is essential to you, most major HVAC brands void them when not installed by a professional. Most warranties contracts are also revoked if you buy a system online. If you follow this link, you can read more about HVAC warranty protection. This is why HVAC installation should always get completed by a professional.

We’ll help you determine which unit is best for your home. As a YORK certified installation company you can rest assured we have the training and knowledge to get your job done right!
The most common system on the market is the split system often referred to as central air conditioning. A split system has its cooling parts installed inside your home. The systems heating parts are installed outside of your home. The condenser and compressor are what’s installed outdoors.
A cabinet inside the house is where the evaporator coil’s placed. Often the air handler is part of the furnace. This handler pushes warm or cool air into your home through the ductwork. If you have a split system using matching components will improve its efficiency. Our experts will determine if a split system is right for you. You can learn more about these systems in our San Diego Homeowners Guide to Central Air where we discuss them in greater detail.
A package unit is a self-contained heating/cooling unit placed outside the home. Packaged units have the blower, coil, and condenser built into one unit. These units can be used on a rooftop or ground-mounted. For optimal efficiency, the unit must be level. This will allow your HVAC system to operate efficiently. Our team can guide you through the selection process if a package unit is suitable for you.
Just like a split system, a mini-split uses an outdoor compressor/condenser. These are linked to the air-handling unit and do not need ductwork.
The mini-split system uses indoor units that are small and versatile. Zone cooling is a significant benefit as well as convenient system expansion. Another considerable advantage is many units can be connected to one outdoor unit. Our professional HVAC installers can design zones for your home. If this is a solution for your needs, we will discuss your options. You can learn more about your options in our homeowners guide to ductless mini-splits here
Installation of a heat pump system consists of an indoor and an outdoor unit. The indoor unit is called an air handler. The outdoor unit is referred to as a heat pump. These systems use the outside air to heat a home in winter and cool it in summer. Heat pumps can be a great option in San Diego. If this is an option for your home, our team will review this as an option.
Should you consider A zoned HVAC installation to heat or cool individual areas of your home? These systems work by controlling zone valves or zone dampers. These operate inside the vents or ductwork of your home. They block the flow of air to areas where it is not needed. Zoned systems can save you energy by only cooling or heating certain areas when you need them. Mini-split systems can offer this same type of solution. If a zoned system is what you need, Hamel’s techs will make the proper recommendation for your needs.
Environmental HVAC systems also need professional installation. These systems can be as important as the rest of your approach, depending on your location. These systems can include humidifiers, dehumidifiers, and air purifiers. They will improve the air quality of your home depending on where you live. These systems, when installed, address humidity and contaminant problems indoors. If needed, our Comfort Consultant will discuss them in detail and explain why it is required.
Thermostats are essential for any home HVAC installation. A thermostat’s job is to communicate with your heating and air conditioning systems. Thermostats provide the information your system will need for consistent operation. Our knowledgeable professionals will help guide your thermostat selection process.
Hamel’s can add humidifiers and dehumidifiers if you live in a very dry or humid climate. If you do, these upgrades should be on your shortlist. About 50 percent humidity is optimal for humans and can increase your comfort levels.
These systems can adjust and control the humidity levels in a home as you heat or cool. When these systems are built into your system, they work when your system is running. This means you cannot control the humidity levels if the system is not operating. Adding these systems separately can often be a viable solution.

HVAC installation is never a once size fits all solution. However, proper system sizing will allow your system to run optimally and save you money. There are charts online which can help, but these should be taken with a grain of salt. This is because no diagram can take into account any challenges your home may face.
Our consultants will ensure your system’s size matches your home’s design. This will consider your family’s needs, home insulation, type of build, and layout. We’ll also take your family’s needs into account. For example, do you have a newborn baby? Are there elderly in your home? Is your pet’s comfort important to you? Diverse family types can cause different requirements, and the homes system must be sized to them.
Our service techs will make recommendations while keeping your budget in mind. We will ensure you get the system your family needs.
What if I told you that you don’t need to replace that heating or cooling system? We will consult with you about these options as they present themselves. Often it can make more sense to make some changes to a system. Many of these possibilities are inexpensive and can save you money. Retrofits are not always an option, but systems like Mini-splits give homeowners options. Their flexibility creates a new opportunity that may not have always been an option. You can learn more in our homeowners guide to mini-splits here
Other options can include adding a vent damper that closes off air loss. This air can escape up a chimney when the boiler or furnace is not running. Another improvement is an intermittent ignition device. This device can turn off pilot lights in older systems saving you money. Sometimes retrofit options are needed to derate or downsize a system. In these instances, we may be able to reduce the size of the gas burner. For example, in an oil-fired system, the orifice or nozzle might need to be reduced. Other solutions may be baffles in a gas-fired system.
If these are options for your home, our team will help you explore these money-saving options.
Once we have a plan in place, we’ll begin by removing your old components. Next, we’ll install the new system and secure the unit to its foundation.
