Once you have professional air conditioning installation performed, you may never 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 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 numerous and expensive repairs, or even a complete breakdown of the entire air conditioner. 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 properly designed for each particular home. Choosing the right size air conditioner is one of the first, and most consequential 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 is called for won’t save you money either. To determine the proper size air conditioner that is the right fit for your home, the AC contractor must perform a heating and cooling load calculation. This decisive assessment takes into account the home’s unique area of windows, roofs and walls and calculates the proper size air conditioner the home requires.
Restricted airflow is another very prevalent 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 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 it should.
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 ensure you don’t have to deal with any of these problems is to hire an air conditioning installation expert from Roland J.
