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 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 faultily, and you could face repeated and pricey repairs, or even a full on breakdown of the entire air conditioner. 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 properly designed for each individual home. Choosing the proper size air conditioner is one of the first, and most important steps you’ll make in making sure you get the highest level of performance out of your air conditioner. Buying a bigger AC system than your home needs won’t improve 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 correct size air conditioner that is an appropriate 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 correct size air conditioner the home requires.
Restricted airflow is another very common 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 air conditioner running harder and longer than it needs to.
Sustained improper use of your air conditioner could turn into an early system failure.
