Once you have professional air conditioning installation performed, you probably won’t ever think about it being there again. On the other hand, if the new air conditioner was installed incorrectly, you will probably 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 incorrectly, and you could face extensive and costly repairs, or even a full on collapse of the entire air conditioner. Keeping the following tips in mind will guarantee that your air conditioner installation is done right the first time.
Air conditioners come in a selection of sizes that must be specifically designed for each individual home. Choosing the proper size air conditioner is one of the first, and most important steps you’ll make in making sure you get the right performance out of your air conditioner. Buying a bigger AC system than your home calls for 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 an appropriate fit for your home, the AC contractor must perform a heating and cooling load calculation. This important assessment considers 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 a portion of the air getting pushed through your AC system is reaching your home, resulting in the AC unit running harder and longer than is healthy.
Prolonged 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 encounter any of these problems is to hire an air conditioning installation expert from Epperson Service Experts to complete your air conditioning installation quickly and professionally.
