Has your old, yet loyal AC quit working? Are you sweating it out in the summer months, with the rising mercury? If yes, then it's time to bid goodbye to your old AC; however loyal it may have been. When it's time for AC replacement and installation, you certainly want to upgrade to a more energy-efficient and environment friendly AC. However, every step up the ladder comes with a cost. If better cooling comes with a cost, then the increase is worth it. But, what if you continue to live in discomfort despite AC replacement and installation?
One thing we need to understand is that inefficiency is not always a fault of the air conditioning system. It is common to blame the brand or AC, when it fails to cool efficiently.
What if your house is not properly insulated? What if there are gaps from where the cool air is lost? What if the size you have chosen is insufficient to cool your home? What if lack of maintenance is resulting in increased energy consumption?
So, how should you choose an AC and then install it correctly in a way that it provides you with a cool and comfortable home environment?
The ladder
Here are the steps involved in doing it the right way.
  • Ac units are measured in tons, which imply the amount of heat it can remove from a home in an hour. A one-ton AC can remove 12,000 BTU's of heat; a three-ton AC can remove 36,000 TU's. So, the AC you choose for your house will depend on the heat, which depends on the size of the house. So, the first step is to consider the size of your home before you settle on the size of the AC you require. An AC smaller than the requirement will fail to cool the space efficiently, and a larger than required one will make the environment uncomfortable and consume more energy than needed.
Ideally, a 1,600 sq. feet house can be well served with a two-and-a-half ton AC. So, choose yours carefully.
However, there are others factors at play while deciding the size of the AC. You would need a smaller one for your basement, a little larger for the first floor and the largest for the second floor; even if they are of the same size. Similarly, an insulated house would require a smaller AC compared to a non-insulated one.
  • Installing an AC requires certain skill and expertise. It's certainly not a DIY job. Hire an experienced contractor to carry out the same, rather than fall into the rut of doing it yourself. You may often be tempted to buy the unit from a wholesaler and install it yourself. Avoid doing it this way. Hire a contractor and let him take care of the installation needs like electrical requirements and more so.
With an experienced contractor, nothing is bound to go wrong. Just get the right AC for your home and enjoy the cool and comfortable home environment; regardless of how high the mercury rises.
