Once you have professional air conditioning installation done, you will likely never think about it being there again. On the other hand, if your new AC unit was installed incorrectly, chances are you will 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 spike as much as 30% if the air conditioner is installed incorrectly, and you could face repeated and costly repairs, or even a full on breakdown of the entire air conditioning system. Keeping the following tips in mind will make sure that your air conditioner installation is done right the first time.
Air conditioners come in a variety of sizes that must be specifically designed for each unique home. Choosing the correct size air conditioner is one of the first, and most consequential steps you’ll make in making sure you get optimum 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 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.
Improper 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 AC unit running harder and longer than it should.
Prolonged 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 have to deal with any of these problems is to hire an air conditioning installation expert from Boehmers/Cronin Emery Home Services by Enercare to complete your air conditioning installation quickly and professionally.
