Two Major Air Conditioner Installation Mistakes to Avoid

Air Conditioner InstallationWhile it’s true we still have some cold weather to get through before it’s time to crank up the AC, if you need a new system you’ve no doubt got a lot going through your mind. It’s very important that you make sure you choose a true professional to take care of your air conditioner installation so that you’ll know it’s performed correctly the first time. The experts with Metro Express Service want to help you avoid two major air conditioner installation mistakes that we’ve seen happen far too often when less qualified contractors were called.

Purchasing the Wrong Size of System

A lot of people think that “bigger is better” when it comes to air conditioner installation, and there are far too many contractors who are more than happy to take advantage of this misconception. The fact is, if your cooling system is too large for your home it will cycle on and off constantly. Not only will this make your cooling bill skyrocket, it will also make you uncomfortable. The reason is that a system that is too large will not do a good enough job of removing humidity from your home. In addition, it won’t last as long as it should due to its continuous cycling.

Having it Installed in the Wrong Position

Many people want their outside unit installed in an out-of-the-way location due to aesthetic concerns. However, this type of air conditioner installation could be damaging to your bank account. The location plays a very important role in your overall system efficiency. You may want the outside unit placed in an area of your property that is largely unused, but that could result in your system having to work too hard. You’re much better off having the unit placed where it will get a good amount of shade. That way, it won’t need as much power to make you comfortable.

Your best bet is to call an expert with Metro Express Service come to your home and perform a detailed analysis of your cooling needs. That way, you’ll be assured of getting an air conditioner installation that is perfect for your home. Call us at 817-516-0700 or contact us online to schedule an appointment.
