The Importance of Proper AC Installation

It’s essential to pick the right company and technician to ensure an optimal AC installation – and that nothing goes wrong!

Improper installation can lead to a variety of issues that not only affect your comfort but also your energy bills and the overall safety of your home.

Understanding refrigerant charge

One of the most critical aspects of AC installation is the refrigerant charge. The refrigerant is the substance that absorbs heat from the air inside your home and releases it outside. If the refrigerant charge is incorrect, either too high or too low, it can result in poor airflow and reduced efficiency. This issue can also arise if the refrigerant pipes are too long, as it can cause the refrigerant to lose its cooling capacity before it reaches the indoor unit.

It’s crucial to work with a technician who has the knowledge and experience to properly calculate and adjust the refrigerant charge based on your specific AC system and home layout.

Preventing water damage

Another potential issue that can arise from improper AC installation is water damage. Air conditioners produce condensation as they cool the air, and this moisture needs to be properly drained away from your home. If the technician fails to install a secondary drip pan or condensate pan, or if these components are not correctly positioned, water can leak and cause damage to your home’s interior, including walls, ceilings, and floors.

Electrical safety concerns

Perhaps the worst consequence of a poorly installed AC unit is the risk of electrical faults and exposed wires. These hazards can pose a serious threat to your safety, potentially leading to electric shocks or even fires. If you notice your AC repeatedly tripping the breaker, it’s a clear sign that there’s an underlying issue that needs to be addressed immediately by a professional.

To ensure electrical safety, choose a company that employs licensed and certified technicians who adhere to local building codes and regulations.
