Why install a high-efficiency AC system?
We specialize in helping our customers install high-efficiency cooling systems. These quality systems can help you save on your energy bill, result in fewer environmentally harmful emissions, and provide you with greater comfort and control. A properly installed central AC system will be a boon to those who suffer from allergies, since the system acts as an air cleaner and dehumidifier to remove excess moistures.
What needs to be considered during a new construction cooling project?
Size of AC system
Before progressing with your new property buildout, consult with an experienced cooling contractor to evaluate and assess your building plans. An AC system should match the size of your property. If the system is too large, you risk wasting power and inefficiently cooling your property. Systems that are too small will likely break down sooner from overuse and fail to effectively regulate the temperature in your home.
Where you place the AC system is important as well to ensure it provides maximum efficiency. There are several factors involved in choosing an ideal location for your system, including the level of humidity, size of the property, and other environmental conditions.
A successful installation requires more than simply setting up a unit and turning it on. Your ductwork, the refrigerant charge capacity, and the type of unit you install all affect where we ultimately place your cooling system. An improperly installed unit will incur increased energy charges and maintenance costs. Make sure your project lays the foundation for a smooth running AC system that will provide uninterrupted service for years to come.
Fans and vents
The main reason for designing and installing a system before a new property is built is to maximize the effect of fans. When using a fan with air conditioning, the fan can actually pull moisture and heat into your property. The location of vents needs to be spaced evenly throughout the property and the vents should be open at all times to ensure optimal efficiency.
