What You Should Know Before Your New Air Conditioner Installation


When you make the decision to have a new air conditioner system installed, you want to ensure you protect your investment. You want to ensure that your new air conditioner is efficient and functions correctly for many years. The following are some things you should think about when you have your new system installed:

Work With a Professional Installer

You want the installation of your new air conditioner to go smoothly. For this to happen, you should only work with a contractor who provides air conditioning services in your area. A licensed HVAC contractor will have the proper credentials and training to do the job properly. He or she will also have the correct tools and equipment to make sure the job is done correctly. Your contractor should have the tools to correct pressures, test voltage, secure the mounts, check the refrigerant levels, and so on.

Check the Size on Your New System

Your HVAC contractor should come to measure your home prior to the installation. If you choose an air conditioning system that is too small or too large for your home, you will not get the best results. A unit that is too small will not cool your home effectively. A unit that is too large will wear out faster than normal because it will constantly cycle on and off. If you have any questions about this process or would like to know about how the system will cool your home, be sure to ask your HVAC contractor before the installation takes place.

Understand Efficiency Ratings

When you install a new appliance in your home, it is always a good idea to understand how energy efficient it is. Your HVAC contractor can help you learn about the energy efficiency of your new air conditioning system. Air conditioners use SEER, which is the seasonal energy efficiency ratio. Your HVAC contractor can explain where your system should land when it comes to this ratio. You should also understand your new system's Energy Star rating. Ideally, your new system should have this mark to provide you with the best energy efficiency. Energy-efficient units can be a larger investment but will help you save money over the long term.

To get the most out of your new air conditioner, you need to get on a regular maintenance schedule. It is best to have your system inspected prior to summer and winter weather. Doing so will ensure that your air conditioner will last a long time.

Talking About Electric Heating Systems

Hi there, my name is Shelley. Welcome to my site about electric heating systems. Electric heat has recently fallen out of favor due to the efficiency of natural gas systems. Electric heat is still suitable for small buildings that do not need the high temps provided by upgraded systems. I will use this site to explore all of the building types that can benefit from electric heating systems. I will also share information about system components, installations and repairs. I welcome you to come by often to learn more about this exciting topic. Thanks for coming by. See you soon.
