What to Consider Before Your Air Conditioning Installation

Do you need a new AC before the heat and humidity of summer officially arrive? Are you concerned about the frequent repairs and age of your current AC? There are many reasons to call for professional Rockville, MD air conditioning installation services. But whether you need a comprehensive cooling solution for your new build or a replacement of your current system, you need to consider a few things before your installation begins. In today’s post, our techs would like to share with you a handful of such things. Most importantly, however, you need to ensure that you’re entrusting the future of your home comfort with an HVAC expert.

  • Type: Among the various decisions you’ll have to make in consultation with your AC contractor is what type of system to install. If you’d merely like to replace your system with the same type you had before, then this shouldn’t really be an issue. But if you’re looking to improve your home, then you might want to consider something a bit different. If you have ductwork and previously had central air, you might want to take advantage of the year-round comfort of a heat pump. Or, if you’re looking to improve indoor air quality and energy efficiency, you might wish to avoid your ductwork entirely with a ductless split air conditioning.
  • Size: Bigger is not always better, when it comes to your air conditioner. Your AC needs to be properly matched to your home in terms of cooling output. If your AC is too small, it will overwork itself and become energy inefficient. On the other hand, if it is too large, then it will frequently turn on and off, and you won’t be able to accurately control the temperature. It will also suffer from increased wear and tear.
  • Options: You may also want to improve energy efficiency and climate control with a digital, programmable thermostat or a zone control system. Both of these cost-effective options can help your new AC achieve even better performance and energy efficiency.
