Get the Right Size Equipment
Installing the right size equipment for the home is essential to getting the best performance and comfort. Many homeowners believe that bigger is always better when buying new heating and cooling equipment. In reality, a system that's too large will not keep your home comfortable because of frequent 'on/off' cycling. Incorrect sizing can also put stress on system components and shorten the equipment's life.
Don't Forget the Ductwork
To help ensure that your new system delivers the heated or cooled air to all the rooms of your home, Certified A/C technicians will evaluate your duct system to identify leaks, and then seal them using mastic, metal-backed tape, or an aerosol-based sealant. In some instances, your HVAC professional may advise you that it is necessary to replace or add ducts.
Get the Right Charge
Incorrect refrigerant level can lower efficiency by 5 – 20 percent and can ultimately cause premature component failure, resulting in costly repairs. Your certified HVAC technician will verify that the refrigerant level in the system is correct and the system is fully charged.
If air flow in your heating and cooling system is too high or too low, you may experience comfort problems and higher utility bills. Be sure that your A/C technician tests the air flow and make any needed adjustments for optimal performance.
When purchasing new heating and cooling equipment, choosing energy-efficient products is a step in the right direction. However, asking the right questions and making sure your equipment is properly sized and installed are also important elements to ensure that your new system performs at optimal efficiency.
