With summer approaching fast, now is a good time to take care of installing a new air conditioning system to replace your old model. Replacing a central air conditioner is a large task, but in the hands of professional installers you should encounter few problems and the work will proceed quickly. In most situations, the physical installation job will require less than a day.
However, there are a few extra things you should consider when you choose to install a new air conditioner. We’ve listed three questions to ask yourself when you are starting out.
Call Celco Heating and Air Conditioning. We have handled air conditioning installation in Stamford, CT since 1976. You can trust to our expertise.
I. Should you go ductless?
Ductless mini split heat pumps give you an option for cooling down your house without the need for space-eating ductwork that can develop dust and dirt. Ductless systems also provide heating power as well, making for a great two-in-one solution for your comfort needs. If you are planning a new home or adding on a room, you should give ductless cooling serious consideration.
II. How large an AC do you need?
The philosophy “you can never go too big” doesn’t work with air conditioners. An AC that is oversized for the space it must cool down will start to shut off prematurely, before completing its cooling cycle. This “short cycling” will drain power and cause the system to age early. If the AC is undersized, it will fail to adequately cool down your home, resulting in warm spots. You need to consult with HVAC installation technicians to properly size your new air conditioner, so make sure you have the professionals involved in the process from the very beginning.
III. Should you upgrade the thermostat as well?
People often neglect the thermostat when they have new air conditioning installation. Although installers will have no trouble wiring up your new AC to an older thermostat, this is an opportune moment to upgrade to one of the technologically advanced thermostat models. If you still have an older manual thermostat, then you definitely should move up to a digital programmable model, which will help you save money and increase your comfort. But even if you’ve already gone digital, you now have the choice of Wi-Fi enabled models that provide control from almost anywhere through your smart phone, tablet, or other Wi-Fi device.
