When your new heating and cooling equipment is installed to meet ENERGY STARS standards, you avoid common installation problems that can reduce the efficiency of your home. These improvements to efficiency can reduce your heating and cooling costs by as much as 30%.
Components of a Quality AC Installation
Proper Sizing of Equipment
Installing the right size AC for your home is essential to getting the best performance for your heating and cooling equipment and maintaining the comfort you deserve. Some believe that bigger is better when buying a new furnace and AC, but a system actually operates best when the equipment is properly sized. Oversized equipment may cycle on and off more frequently, which can make the home less comfortable and shorten the equipment life. When our experience furnace installer comes to your home, he will take measurements and then do calculations to determine the appropriate size for your air conditioner or heat pump.
Ducts circulate air from the furnace, central air conditioner or heat pump throughout the house. Often ducts have damage or poor connections that leak the hot or cold air and waste a lot of energy. Sealing ducts can greatly improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system. Energy Stars Furnace Installation Expert will measure duct leakage and make necessary repairs to minimize losses.
Optimizing Air Flow
To operate well, a furnace and AC system needs to have the proper volume of air flow. If air flow is too high or too low, it may make the home less comfortable and increase utility bills. An Energy Stars AC Installation Expert will measure air flow and make any adjustments necessary for optimal performance or your AC.
While many technicians add the refrigerant after putting the whole system together, our AC Installation Expert will measure the length of the refrigerant line (the proper coil model) based upon the manufacturing specifications. Heating and Cooling manufacturers state this is the proper way to add refrigerant during the install and will save the customer money and system breakdown because the use of the right amount of refrigerant keeps the newly installed AC functioning at it’s peak performance.
