The level of comfort experienced when you are living in the home heavily depends on the efficiency of the HVAC system installed. When the system is in the right working order, you will experience fresh and clean air and optimum temperatures. On the other hand, when the system is inefficient, you will have stuffy rooms, cold spots and ill-regulated temperatures. Here are some tips that could help you when it comes to the installation and maintenance of central air conditioners.
The installation process
When installing the air conditioner, you have to think about its size, capacity, SEER rating and cost. The size and capacity depend on the area that it is serving in square feet. Small to medium capacity air conditioners will be ideal for smaller rooms. On the other hand, when you need to regulate temperatures for huge rooms with many occupants, you should choose a big central conditioner unit. If you are not sure about the size of the unit that is ideal for you, you should work with the installation experts to help you choose the right size. The cost of the systems depends on the size, capacity and SEER rating. Units that have a higher SEER rating are more efficient.
Maintenance of the HVAC system
The lifespan of an HVAC system depends on how well you maintain it. There are companies that offer maintenance contracts for all the units they sell. These deals may seem a little expensive, but in the long run, they will be worth the cost. Maintenance includes services such as cleaning the air filters if they are permanent of changing them, removing the accumulated ice from the condenser unit and checking whether the registers are clear. These actions may seem insignificant, however, when the little problems keep accumulating; the systems get ruined leading the need for repairs.
Repairing and replacing the systems
Research has shown that repairing an HVAC system that has a problem will raise energy efficiency by at least 20 percent. It is also important to know when the unit has outlived its use and replace it.
