Once you have professional air conditioning installation done, you probably won’t ever think about it being there again. On the other hand, if your new AC unit was installed wrong, chances are 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 spike as much as 30% if the air conditioner is installed incorrectly, and you could face numerous and pricey repairs, or even a complete failure 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 range of sizes that must be accurately designed for each particular home. Choosing the proper 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 is called for won’t save you money either. To determine the correct size air conditioner that is a proper fit for your home, the AC contractor must perform a heating and cooling load calculation. This decisive assessment measures the home’s unique area of windows, roofs and walls and calculates the correct size air conditioner the home requires.
Restricted 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 some of the air getting pushed through your AC system is reaching your home, resulting in the system running harder and longer than it should.
Sustained improper use of your air conditioner could turn into an early system failure. That’s why the most important thing you can do to see that you don’t have to deal 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.
