Purchase and Installation
Some people believe a larger unit is better. That is only true when the existing system was undersized to begin with. The following examples explain why you need the right size and the problems a wrong size system can cause.
Considering the cost of energy, homeowners place the cost of operating the HVAC system high on their list of priorities. Depending on your choice, an energy efficient system can save homeowner’s from 20% to 50% on the energy costs. A home’s construction, materials and insulation qualities can affect your costs for operating heating and air conditioning. Ensuring a properly sized system helps you obtain your goals of higher energy efficiency. Our NATE certified technicians adhere to the industry guidelines, ensuring your heating and air conditioning installation in Dallas is correctly sized for your home.
According to the EPA, 70 percent of heating and air conditioning systems were installed with an incorrect airflow, consequently reducing the system's energy efficiency. Furthermore, the survey revealed approximately 74 percent of the systems had an incorrect amount of refrigerant from the first day of installation. A lack of the correct amount of refrigerant affects performance, results in higher energy costs, reduces lifespan and reliability due to faster wear and tear on the system. From this, you can determine that a proper installation includes a knowledgeable contractor. Contact Garland Heating and Air Conditioning for a professional air conditioning installation in Dallas that you can rely on from start to finish.
Add to this, an oversized system is incapable of attaining maximum efficiency, and the cost to you rises from day one. An oversized system will turn off prematurely without removing the humidity from the air, affecting your comfort and the system performance. The process is known as “short cycling.”
Short cycling occurs when the air conditioner cycles on, brings the temperature down rapidly and shuts off before adequate moisture is extracted from the air. The cycle remains brief due to the temperature being quickly brought down, hence the name “short cycling”. The untreated humidity remains elevated in the home, causing the occupants to feel hotter than it actually is, and short cycling can encourage the growth of mold and mildew in the home. The system simply will not run long enough to remove adequate humidity from the air during the process of short cycling.
These are the reasons you should insist on a properly sized air conditioning installation in Dallas. It is essential for your comfort, energy efficiency and the lifespan of the system. The frequent operation wears the unit prematurely, and the system never has the opportunity to enter the efficient stage.
Furthermore, contractors who replace units based on the existing size may be replacing a wrong sized unit with the same. A proper air conditioning installation is provided according to the guidelines and industry standards. An installation based on the square footage alone is not an adequate assessment.
Contractors typically use the ASHRAE Handbook, which lists the industry guidelines. The book considers factors such as the property's location, climate, degree of insulation, type, facing direction, the size, facing direction and type of windows and doors, intended use, amount of ventilation, and other factors.
