Once you have professional air conditioning installation performed, you will likely never think about it being there again. On the other hand, if your air conditioning 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 improperly, and you could face extensive and expensive repairs, or even a total breakdown of the entire AC unit. Keeping these tips in mind will make sure 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 the right performance out of your air conditioner. Buying a bigger AC system than your home needs won’t improve 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 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 common 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 some 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 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 D.A.
