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 wrong, it’s more likely than not that 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 extensive and pricey repairs, or even a full on failure 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 variety of sizes that must be specifically designed for each particular home. Choosing the right size air conditioner is one of the first, and most important steps you’ll make in ensuring you get the highest level of 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 your home needs won’t save you money either. To determine the proper size air conditioner that is an appropriate fit for your home, the AC contractor must perform a heating and cooling load calculation. This critical 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 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 reduced amount of the air getting pushed through your AC system is reaching your home, resulting in the system running harder and longer than is healthy.
Extended improper use of your air conditioner could turn into an early system failure. That’s why the most important thing you can do to ensure you don’t have to deal with any of these problems is to hire an air conditioning installation expert from San Antonio Air Service Experts to complete your air conditioning installation quickly and professionally.
