Once you have professional air conditioning installation performed, you probably won’t ever think about it being there again. On the other hand, if your new AC unit was installed incorrectly, chances are 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 costly repairs, or even a total breakdown of the entire air conditioning system. Keeping a few simple tips in mind will make sure that your air conditioner installation is done right the first time.
Air conditioners come in a selection of sizes that must be accurately designed for each individual home. Choosing the correct 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 requires 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 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 proper 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 air conditioner 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 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.
