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, you will probably encounter various problems, and may 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 extensive and costly repairs, or even a full on collapse of the entire AC unit. 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 unique home. Choosing the proper size air conditioner is one of the first, and most important steps you’ll make in ensuring you get optimum performance out of your air conditioner. Buying a bigger AC system than your home calls for won’t improve 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 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.
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 have to deal with 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.
