There are certain aspects of AC installation that need to be performed by a licensed and certified AC service and AC repair technician to ensure your new system operates at optimal performance.
Proper indoor piping and drainage system
When performing AC installations, it is imperative to install the correct drainage system and ensure the indoor piping is properly insulated. Improper drainage systems can result in costly AC service and AC repair as the water overflows and cause damage to other system components. Likewise, if piping is not properly insulated, it sweats, which can lead to water damage to the components and your home.
Positioning of unit and air vents
The positioning of the unit and air vents are important to consider with AC installations.
At BlueSky, we recommend placing the HVAC unit in a shadier area vs. direct sunlight. Units in direct sunlight must work harder and require more frequent AC service. If the air vents are located in areas where air flow is inhibited, AC repair is in your future.
When performing an AC installation, it is important to make sure all ductwork is properly sealed. Failure to do so increases the chance of leaks, which then often result in costly AC repair.
