Once you have professional air conditioning installation done, you will likely never think about it being there again. On the other hand, if your new AC unit was installed incorrectly, it’s more likely than not that you will encounter various problems, and could 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 improperly, and you could face extensive and costly repairs, or even a complete failure of the entire air conditioner. Keeping a few simple tips in mind will ensure that your air conditioner installation is done right the first time.
Air conditioners come in a selection of sizes that must be properly designed for each unique home. Choosing the proper size air conditioner is one of the first, and most crucial steps you’ll make in ensuring you get the highest level of 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 is called for won’t save you money either. To determine the right size air conditioner that is a proper fit for your home, the AC contractor must perform a heating and cooling load calculation. This critical assessment considers the home’s unique area of windows, roofs and walls and calculates the correct size air conditioner the home requires.
Inadequate airflow is another very common 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 reduced amount of the air getting pushed through your AC system is reaching your home, resulting in the AC unit 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 see that 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.
