90% of Air Conditioner Installations Exhibit Energy or Comfort-robbing Problems
THE VALUE OF OUR QUALITY INSTALLATION
Replacing your old heating and cooling equipment with new, energy-efficient models is a great start. But to make sure that you get the best performance, the new equipment must be properly installed. In fact, improper installation can reduce system efficiency by up to 30 percent – costing you more on your utility bills and possibly shortening the equipment’s life.
PROPER SIZING OF EQUIPMENT
Installing the right size equipment for the home is essential to getting the best performance and comfort. Many homeowners believe that bigger is always better when buying new heating and cooling equipment. In reality, a system that’s too large will not keep your home comfortable because of frequent ‘on/off’ cycling. Incorrect sizing can also put stress on system components and shorten the equipment’s life. With a quality installation by Alaskan Heating & Air Conditioning, we will make sure that you get a system that is the right size for your home.
To help ensure that your new system delivers the heated or cooled air to all the rooms of your home, Alaskan Heating & Air Conditioning will evaluate your duct system to identify leaks, and then seal them using mastic, metal-backed tape, or an aerosol-based sealant. In some instances, we may advise you that it is necessary to replace or add ducts.
ENSURING PROPER REFRIGERANT CHARGE
Incorrect refrigerant levels can lower efficiency by 5 to 20 percent and can ultimately cause premature component failure, resulting in costly repairs. With a quality installation by Alaskan Heating & Air Conditioning, we will verify that the refrigerant level in the system is correct.
OPTIMZING AIR FLOW
If air flow in your heating and cooling system is too high or too low, you may experience comfort problems and higher utility bills. With our quality installation, we will test air flow and make any needed adjustments for optimal performance.
