Once you have professional air conditioning installation completed, you will likely never think about it being there again. On the other hand, if the new air conditioner was installed improperly, chances are you will encounter various problems, and might 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 numerous and expensive repairs, or even a total failure of the entire air conditioning system. Keeping the following tips in mind will guarantee that your air conditioner installation is done right the first time.
Air conditioners come in a range of sizes that must be accurately designed for each particular home. Choosing the proper size air conditioner is one of the first, and most important steps you’ll make in ensuring you get the right 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 proper size air conditioner that is a proper 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 correct size air conditioner the home requires.
Inadequate 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.
Sustained 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 Strand Brothers Service Experts to complete your air conditioning installation quickly and professionally.
