When you’re adding a new HVAC system for your greater Concord home, you likely have a lot on your mind. After all, this is a major investment in your home.
What you should not have to worry about is the actual installation of your new HVAC system. You don’t have to with the trained, experienced service technicians at Johnny Prescott! We provide expert, proper installation of HVAC systems as well as maintenance and repair services.
What if your new house’s cooling or heating system is put in incorrectly? Here are a few of the potential consequences.
Inaccurate sizing. When it comes to using your new HVAC system, it’s important to get the correct size. If you buy equipment that is too little or too big, it will not only make you less comfortable than you should be, but it will also prematurely wear out your equipment. An insufficient HVAC system will operate excessively, while a large one would cycle the compressor and fan controls more than is needed.
Many inexperienced contractors would tell you that right-sizing is solely based on the size of your house, but it isn’t. You must also think about the local weather (particularly here in New Hampshire), your house’s design, the amount of windows you have, how much insulation you have, how exposed your home is to sunlight, and more. Getting the right size HVAC system isn’t straightforward, which is why it’s important to hire a professional who will weigh all of these variables and more to guarantee you get the appropriate size of HVAC system for your home.
Leaks in ductwork. Recent research revealed the surprising amount of air you paid to cool or heat may never even reach your living space. In many homes, heated or cooled air enters your basement, attic, and spaces between your walls, resulting in higher energy expenses for you. A professional HVAC installation necessitates a thorough duct system examination, with any necessary modifications. This inspection may lead to system-wide efficiency improvements, cutting your energy costs even more.
Incorrect refrigerant charging. If your central air conditioner is undercharged, it might accumulate frost or ice on its cooling coils over time. This causes a malfunctioning compressor motor and poor cooling performance. The repairs for this are major and expensive, and you may be without air conditioning during a heat wave. A/C systems that are excessively charged work effectively but not efficiently. You likely won’t realize until your energy bills soar.
Excessive refrigerant pressure in the system may result in the coolant entering the compressor, resulting in expensive repairs or, worse, a permanent air conditioning failure.
