Installation practices have a dramatic effect on AC performance. With an HVAC system, each component works together to heat and cool your home efficiently. That’s why we complete a full assessment before we recommend products.
How AC Performance is Determined
The efficiency rating for a new HVAC unit is only a number. It takes proper installation using industry best practices to achieve optimal performance. According to the EPA, faulty installation can decrease the efficiency by 30 percent and shorten the equipment’s lifespan. The following factors affect the performance of heating and cooling systems:
- The model and efficiency rating
- The type of system
- Ductwork design and condition
- Your home’s heating and cooling requirements
- The size of the unit in relation to the size of your home
- The quality and capacity of existing ductwork
- Installation techniques including monitoring refrigerant charge
Professional AC Installation
In Mount Pleasant, Texas, everyone depends on air conditioning to manage indoor temperatures and humidity levels. We understand the importance of reliable HVAC equipment, so we use our skills to make sure that your new system performs optimally.
The installation process begins before the unit is delivered to your property. We start by evaluating your home’s air conditioning needs. The recommended AC size is based on square footage and factors like heat gain. We will also assess the ductwork to make sure that the new unit is compatible and will perform as advertised. If you have a split system with an outdoor compressor and an indoor air handler, we will determine whether both sections need to be replaced. Matched systems may deliver greater efficiency and comfort.
The AC size, placement, and configuration affect overall performance. We also look at placement to make sure the system is in the right location and on level ground. Once the unit is connected, our experts will charge the system with the correct amount of refrigerant. We will conduct final tests to ensure that the new air conditioner will work as expected and for the system’s expected life.
