Purchasing an AC unit is a bit more complicated than just picking a unit off the shelf and placing it in your home or business. If you would like to effectively and efficiently cool your property, you’ll want to avoid making these common AC purchasing mistakes:
Installing an improperly sized AC unit or system
Air conditioners come in a variety of sizes. If you buy an air conditioner that is too large, you will be spending more money than is necessary on a unit and losing efficiency while cooling your home. On the other hand, an air conditioner that is too small will cause the system to overwork, meaning your home or business won’t be cooled effectively and your unit could face mechanical issues due to the stress on the system.
The best way to find the best sized HVAC system for your home is to work with a professional. The technicians at Gilman Cooling and Heating will consider factors like the square footage of your home and the temperature you would like the space cooled to in order to find you the right AC system for your needs.
Opting for DIY installation
Installing an HVAC system on your own is one of the largest AC purchasing mistakes to avoid. You may think a DIY job will save you money but it will actually likely cost you more in the long run. During installation, there are a variety of factors that need to be taken into consideration that you may overlook. For example, do you know how to ensure your system has adequate ventilation? Do you have experience installing ductwork to prevent leaks? Did you take all the factors into consideration for sizing and load?
