Benefits to Air Conditioning Installation.
Air conditioning installation has become more common in residential homes because air conditioning can provide many benefits in terms of comfort and relaxation to homeowners.
Residential air conditioning allows you to enjoy ideal indoor temperature in any room within your home. You no longer need to sleep in the basement during those hot summer nights when your bedroom feels like a sauna. Bedrooms can be kept cool and comfortable throughout the warmest of summer nights, allowing a constant level of comfort throughout the year.
Air conditioning installation costs less than you think too, so get in touch for a no-obligation quote.
Improve Air Quality
Another benefit to having central air conditioning installed in your home is improved indoor air quality and humidity levels. With all air conditioning installation, it allows you to effectively purify the air and reduce dust, pet fur and pollen. Air conditioners circulate and filter air, removing pollutants and mold from the air. This is especially important for people who suffer from allergies and asthma because it minimizes the irritants that trigger an attack.
An air conditioner can also act as a de-humidifier reducing the growth of molds and mildews in your home, which commonly arise from high moisture. Potential health concerns associated with mold exposures include allergic reactions, asthma, and other respiratory complaints. Moisture can easily be controlled with an air conditioner.
Improved Home Security
The ability to keep windows and doors closed in the summer also improves the security of your home, especially at night. Being able to keep doors and windows closed will also allow you to keep out the noise of traffic or loud neighbors. Keeping windows closed will also help anyone suffering of allergies as the transfers of allergens and bacteria from outside into your home will be minimized.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Average Life of an Air Conditioner?
Each system is different; however, with proper (and regular) care and upkeep, a good air conditioner can offer between 15 to 20 years of cooling.
How can I reduce the energy costs of an air conditioner?
There are some simple, tried-and-true methods for reducing air conditioner energy costs. Some of these methods include the following:
- Seal windows for air leaks
- Turn your air conditioner off when you don’t need it
- Try using shades, blinds, and curtains
- Get solar panels installed
- Use portable fans
How often should I have my air conditioning serviced?
Your air conditioner’s fins, coils, and filters require routine maintenance for your system to function optimally. Failing to tend to this can affect your unit’s effectiveness and efficiency. As a result, your unit will slowly decline in its performance. So you should service your home AC unit at least once annually.
When is the best time to install an air conditioner in your home?
The ideal time to book an AC installation service is spring or fall.
How much does it cost to have an air conditioning unit installed?
On average, homeowners pay about $5,000 to install a central air conditioner unit. The primary variables that will impact the price include your home’s square footage, your unit’s brand, and the SEER ranking you opt for.
What do I need to know before installing an Air Conditioner?
Installing a new air conditioner can feel like a complicated process. However, if you leave it to the experts, there are only a few things you need to concern yourself with; they are as follows:
- Strength of your wall: Ensure your wall is strong enough to hold the indoor unit. It should have enough stability to endure the unit’s rumbling and vibration.
- Space: It’s advised that your indoor AC retains an open space minimum of 10 – 15 cm around its sides and top. This space is required for airflow. Restricting airflow could make expelling heat harder for your unit, increasing your AC’s operating cost. Moreover, the possibility of damaging the compressor is increased as well.
- Efficiency of ductwork: Older ductwork may leak up to 20% (or more) of your chilled air into the crawl space or attic. Handling the ductwork is vital for a quality AC installation. One alternative is replacing it. Another option is to make any restorations, seal the system, and complete the job by insulating it.
What is involved in installing a new air conditioner?
There are a few things to remember if you take the DIY approach to your AC installation. Some factors to consider:
- Where you’ll install the unit: The location must have sufficient airflow; it must be “out of the way,” so you’re not bothered by excess noise; it must also have easy access for repairs and maintenance.
- Connecting your unit: Once your AC unit is positioned and secured, you must also:
- Determine the correct refrigerant line’s length
- Secure the drain piping length is correct
- Connect both the thermostat and electrical lines
- Extract any refrigerant line pollutants
- If not already charged, you’ll want to charge your unit with refrigerant
- Perform a test to ensure it’s operating correctly
- Check the unit: when installed, check the system by setting the thermostat and turning it on. The blower and the compressor should work properly; this entails testing the air blowing via the ductwork to ensure it feels sufficiently chilled.
