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 wrong, it’s more likely than not that you will 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 improperly, and you could face repeated and expensive repairs, or even a complete collapse of the entire AC unit. Keeping these tips in mind will ensure 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 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 the right performance out of your air conditioner. Buying a bigger AC system than your home needs won’t raise its efficiency and could end up costing more in the end. However, buying a smaller system than is called for won’t save you money either. To determine the right size air conditioner that is the right fit for your home, the AC contractor must perform a heating and cooling load calculation. This critical assessment measures the home’s unique area of windows, roofs and walls and calculates the appropriate size air conditioner the home requires.
Restricted airflow is another very frequent 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 system running harder and longer than it should.
Sustained 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 see that you don’t encounter 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.
