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 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 increase as much as 30% if the air conditioner is installed incorrectly, and you could face extensive and expensive repairs, or even a total 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 variety of sizes that must be properly designed for each particular home. Choosing the right size air conditioner is one of the first, and most important 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 needs won’t increase its efficiency and could end up costing more in the end. However, buying a smaller system than you need 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 measures 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 prevalent 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 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 should.
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 see that you don’t find yourself faced with any of these problems is to hire an air conditioning installation expert from Pardee Service Experts to complete your air conditioning installation quickly and professionally.
