Why professional air conditioning installation is so important Published on May 22, 2015 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, 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 spike as much as 30% if the air conditioner is installed faultily, and you could face numerous and expensive repairs, or even a total failure of the entire air conditioning system. 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 properly designed for each individual home. Choosing the correct size air conditioner is one of the first, and most important steps you’ll make in ensuring you get the right 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 right 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 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 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 AC unit running harder and longer than it needs to. Sustained improper use of your air conditioner could turn into an early demise for your system. That’s why the most important thing you can do to make sure you don’t find yourself faced with any of these problems is to hire an air conditioning installation expert from Mountainwest Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning to complete your air conditioning installation quickly and professionally.
