One of the main reasons for installing a new HVAC system is an expected improvement in efficiency – up to 30 percent, in some cases. The problem is you won’t experience the full benefits of your new heating or cooling equipment if it is not installed properly.
Proper installation is crucial for the performance of a new HVAC system, which is why it is a job only suited for experienced, well-trained professionals – not budget handymen or small-time contractors.
To do the job right, your heating and cooling contractor needs to understand how to install today’s advanced HVAC equipment so that it complies with all building codes and safety standards while also maximizing performance; if he doesn’t, it could cost you much more than a few dollars on your monthly energy bill, since poorly installed systems can pose safety risks.
How can improper installation keep you from enjoying the benefits of a new home cooling or heating system? Here are a few of the biggest ways:
The problem is that right-sizing isn’t simply based on the volume of your house, as many less experienced installers would have you believe. You also need to take into account local weather, the style of your home, the number of windows you have, the amount of insulation you’ve installed, the amount of shade your house is exposed to, and more. In short, right-sizing is a complex process that is best left to a professional who will consider all these variables and more to get you the right system for your home.
Excessive refrigerant pressure could also force coolant into the compressor motor, leading to costly A/C repairs – or even a permanent system breakdown.
