Air conditioning installation and your residential heating and cooling.
Summer is a common time to move to a new house or make improvements to your existing home. One common upgrade is to your residential heating and cooling. What do you need to know about air conditioning installation for your new home or home improvement?
Here’s a basic guidebook to residential heating and cooling.
When you decide to invest in new residential heating and cooling, the size of the system makes a huge difference. If it’s too big, it won’t be efficient because it will have a hard time regulating output as well as humidity, loss of warm or cool air, and energy consumption. If your residential heating and cooling system is too small, it will have to run harder to try to keep up with demand, which not only affects efficiency, but can take a toll on the system itself.
Have Your Ducts in a Row
Ductwork is a huge factor in air conditioner installation for your new residential heating and cooling system. Ducts need to be the right size and capacity for the system and the square footage of the home, with the right air return built in for proper air circulation.
Make Sure the Pros are Pros, and Not Cons
When shopping for your new residential heating and cooling system, be careful when selecting your HVAC company. First of all, they should offer Energy Star equipment. They should spend a significant amount of time doing a comprehensive evaluation of your home, its size and needs, and then give you a written and itemized estimate. Don’t settle for some hack that simply claims they know what they’re doing. Make sure you use a reputable company for your air conditioner installation.
