Once you have professional air conditioning installation performed, you will likely never think about it being there again. On the other hand, if your air conditioning unit was installed improperly, 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 spike as much as 30% if the air conditioner is installed incorrectly, and you could face repeated and expensive repairs, or even a full on collapse of the entire AC unit. Keeping the following tips in mind will ensure that your air conditioner installation is done right the first time.
Air conditioners come in a selection of sizes that must be properly designed for each unique home. Choosing the correct size air conditioner is one of the first, and most important steps you’ll make in guaranteeing you get the highest level of 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 is called for 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 measures 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 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 air conditioner running harder and longer than it should.
Prolonged improper use of your air conditioner could turn into an early system failure. 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 Strogen's Service Experts to complete your air conditioning installation quickly and professionally.
