Once you have professional air conditioning installation completed, you will likely never think about it being there again. On the other hand, if your new AC unit was installed wrong, it’s more likely than not that you will encounter various problems, and may regret the air conditioning installation altogether. In fact, according to a recent NIST study, you could see your utility bill increase as much as 30% if the air conditioner is installed improperly, and you could face repeated and pricey repairs, or even a full on breakdown of the entire air conditioner. Keeping the following tips in mind will ensure that your air conditioner installation is done right the first time.
Air conditioners come in a variety of sizes that must be specifically designed for each unique home. Choosing the right size air conditioner is one of the first, and most crucial steps you’ll make in making sure you get the highest level of performance out of your air conditioner. Buying a bigger AC system than your home needs won’t improve its efficiency and could end up costing more in the end. However, buying a smaller system than your home needs won’t save you money either. To determine the right size air conditioner that is an appropriate fit for your home, the AC contractor must perform a heating and cooling load calculation. This important assessment takes into account the home’s unique area of windows, roofs and walls and calculates the appropriate size air conditioner the home requires.
Inadequate airflow is another very frequent problem that can occur when air conditioning installation has been completed improperly. It can be caused by leaky ducts or blockages within the system. This means that only a portion of the air getting pushed through your AC system is reaching your home, resulting in the system running harder and longer than it needs to.
Sustained improper use of your air conditioner could turn into an early demise for your system. That’s why the most important thing you can do to make sure you don’t encounter any of these problems is to hire an air conditioning installation expert from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning to complete your air conditioning installation quickly and professionally.
