Why professional air conditioning installation is so important Published on May 22, 2015 Once you have professional air conditioning installation done, you may never think about it being there again. On the other hand, if your air conditioning unit was installed improperly, chances are 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 improperly, and you could face extensive and pricey repairs, or even a total collapse of the entire air conditioner. Keeping the following 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 specifically designed for each particular 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 right performance out of your air conditioner. Buying a bigger AC system than your home requires won’t increase 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 takes into account the home’s unique area of windows, roofs and walls and calculates the appropriate size air conditioner the home requires. Restricted airflow is another very frequent problem that can occur when air conditioning installation has not been done properly. 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 demise for your system. 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 Barlow Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning to complete your air conditioning installation quickly and professionally.
