Once you have professional air conditioning installation done, you will likely never think about it being there again. On the other hand, if the new air conditioner was installed improperly, it’s more likely than not that you will 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 extensive and pricey repairs, or even a total failure of the entire air conditioner. 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 range of sizes that must be accurately designed for each unique home. Choosing the correct size air conditioner is one of the first, and most consequential 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 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 right size air conditioner that is a proper fit for your home, the AC contractor must perform a heating and cooling load calculation. This important assessment considers the home’s unique area of windows, roofs and walls and calculates the appropriate size air conditioner the home requires.
Improper airflow is another very prevalent 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 reduced amount of the air getting pushed through your AC system is reaching your home, resulting in the air conditioner running harder and longer than is healthy.
Extended 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 ensure you don’t find yourself faced with any of these problems is to hire an air conditioning installation expert from BW/Cook Service Experts to complete your air conditioning installation quickly and professionally.
