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 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 increase as much as 30% if the air conditioner is installed faultily, and you could face numerous and expensive repairs, or even a full on 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 range of sizes that must be properly designed for each individual home. Choosing the proper size air conditioner is one of the first, and most crucial steps you’ll make in guaranteeing 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 your home needs won’t save you money either. To determine the proper 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 proper size air conditioner the home requires.
Improper airflow is another very frequent problem that can occur when air conditioning installation has not been handled by a professional. 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 air conditioner running harder and longer than it needs to.
Extended improper use of your air conditioner could turn into an early system failure.
