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, 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 go up as much as 30% if the air conditioner is installed improperly, and you could face extensive and costly repairs, or even a total failure of the entire air conditioning system. 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 range of sizes that must be specifically designed for each individual home. Choosing the proper size air conditioner is one of the first, and most crucial steps you’ll make in guaranteeing you get optimum performance out of your air conditioner. Buying a bigger AC system than your home requires won’t increase 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 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 appropriate size air conditioner the home requires.
Improper airflow is another very common 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 reduced amount 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 breakdown of the entire system. That’s why the most important thing you can do to ensure you don’t encounter any of these problems is to hire an air conditioning installation expert from Parker Pearce Service Experts to complete your air conditioning installation quickly and professionally.
