Once you have professional air conditioning installation done, you will likely never think about it being there again. On the other hand, if the new air conditioner was installed improperly, it’s more likely than not that you will encounter various problems, and might regret the air conditioning installation altogether. In fact, according to a recent NIST study, you could see your utility bill go up as much as 30% if the air conditioner is installed incorrectly, and you could face repeated and costly repairs, or even a total failure of the entire air conditioning system. Keeping the following tips in mind will ensure that your air conditioner installation is done right the first time.
Air conditioners come in a range of sizes that must be properly designed for each particular home. Choosing the correct size air conditioner is one of the first, and most consequential steps you’ll make in ensuring you get optimum performance out of your air conditioner. Buying a bigger AC system than your home calls for won’t raise 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 correct size air conditioner that is an appropriate fit for your home, the AC contractor must perform a heating and cooling load calculation. This critical assessment measures 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 prevalent problem that can occur when air conditioning installation has not been done properly. 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 AC unit running harder and longer than is healthy.
Extended improper use of your air conditioner could turn into an early system failure. That’s why the most important thing you can do to ensure you don’t find yourself faced with 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.
