Summers in Atlanta are hot and humid, and a central air conditioning system can feel like a dream come true. Suddenly, you go from looking for ways to avoid the heat to enjoying a cool, comfortable respite in your own home. Poor air conditioning installation, however, can put a damper on that feeling with higher costs and AC problems arriving well before they should. Here are 3 problems stemming from an improper installation procedure.
- Leaks and air flow problems: If the lines and ductwork of your new air conditioning system aren’t properly installed, they can lead to leaks, especially in the houses and fittings where one component joins another. Leaks can lead to poor air flow, which forces your unit to work harder and raises your electric bills higher than they should be.
- Wear and tear: Similarly, one malfunctioning component can increase overall wear and tear on your whole unit. As with the leaks, this can lead to decreased efficiency and higher bills. More importantly, the component may cause many other parts to break down more quickly than they should, necessitating expensive repair costs.
- Refrigerant levels: Refrigerant gas is a vital component in your air conditioner’s cooling process, and it needs to be at a specific level corresponding to the needs of your particular air conditioning model. If it isn’t properly charged from the get-go, your unit will suffer immediate problems. Ice will develop on the evaporator coils, interfering with the cooling process and possibly leading to further troubles down the line.
