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, 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 spike as much as 30% if the air conditioner is installed improperly, and you could face repeated and pricey repairs, or even a complete failure of the entire AC unit. Keeping a few simple tips in mind will ensure 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 individual home. Choosing the correct size air conditioner is one of the first, and most consequential steps you’ll make in guaranteeing you get the right performance out of your air conditioner. Buying a bigger AC system than your home requires won’t improve 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 correct 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 measures the home’s unique area of windows, roofs and walls and calculates the proper size air conditioner the home requires.
Restricted airflow is another very frequent problem that can occur when air conditioning installation has been completed improperly. 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.
Sustained improper use of your air conditioner could turn into an early breakdown of the entire system.
