Installation Plays a Huge Role in AC Performance

The decision is made. It’s time for a new air conditioner to get you through the dog days of summer. You did your research and you know which one you want to buy, but have you taken time to think about the other part of the equation—the air conditioning installation?

Sanborn’s Air Conditioning & Heating wants to make sure you know HVAC installation day is the most important day when it comes to the performance of your new system. It’s critical you choose a company with a proven track record of successful air conditioning installations.
Think about it like you would a basketball team. Your brand-new air conditioner is just like the star player with all of the athletic skills in the world. Without teammates who do the little things like rebound and pass the ball, the star’s talent is wasted.
In this case, the installers are the star’s teammates. If they don’t do their job well, the new air conditioner will never reach its full potential. For you that means you won’t save as much money as you should on monthly utility bills and your home won’t be as comfortable as it should be.
In order to be a success, the work on a new HVAC installation has to start long before the workers come to your house. Sanborn’s system designers will help you choose the right equipment. Correct sizing is a critical step in assuring top performance.
Our trained Sanborn’s technicians often find improperly installed systems. Three common problems are:

  • Refrigerant system not properly charged – The installers fail to follow manufacturer guidelines in this critical step. The incorrect amount of refrigerant will affect cooling efficiency and can cause long-term damage.
  • Inadequate airflow – This can be a design problem causing some rooms to be uncomfortable. It also requires your air conditioner to work harder, reducing equipment life, and driving up energy use.
  • Leaky ducts – Duct problems often go hand-in-hand with airflow issues. Central systems can lose up to
    30% of their efficiency if the ducts have leaks or weren’t properly installed.

Another reason installation day is so important is making sure the system is operating correctly. Too many HVAC contractors take the air conditioner out of the box, hook it up, turn it on, and go home. It’s not the way Sanborn’s does business. Our installers will balance and calibrate the system to make sure it’s performing as efficiently as it was designed to. In the long run, it can save you thousands of dollars in repairs and early replacement.
