The consequences of improper HVAC installation

What happens if your new home cooling or heating system is installed incorrectly? Here are a few of the things that can happen.

Inaccurate sizing. It’s critical to get the appropriate size HVAC system in order to get the most out of your new installation. If you buy equipment that is too little or too large, it will not only make you less comfortable than you should be, but it will also prematurely wear out your equipment. An HVAC system that is too small will run excessively. An HVAC system that’s too big will continue to turn on and off, cycling the compressor and fan controls.

Right-sizing isn’t just based on the size of your home, as many inexperienced installers would tell you. You also need to consider local weather (particularly in Western New York), the style of your home, the quantity of windows you have, the amount of insulation you’ve installed, how exposed your house is to sunshine, and more. Getting the appropriate size HVAC system is a complicated process that should be handled by a knowledgeable professional who will consider all of these factors and more to ensure you get the correct size of HVAC system for your home.

Leaks in ductwork. Recent research revealed the surprising amount of air you paid to cool or heat may never even reach your living space. In many houses, air that is heated or cooled enters your basement, attic, and the gaps between your walls, resulting in higher energy costs for you. A thorough duct system examination, with adjustments as needed, is essential in a professional HVAC installation. In some situations, this inspection may result in system-wide efficiency improvements that you were not aware of.

Incorrect refrigerant charging. If your central air conditioner is undercharged, it might grow frost or ice on its cooling coils over time. That results in poor cooling performance and the possibility of a failed compressor motor. The repairs for this are major and costly, and you could be without air conditioning during a heat wave. A/C systems that are excessively charged function well, but not efficiently – a problem you won’t notice until you receive dramatically higher energy bills.

Excessive refrigerant pressure in the system may cause coolant to enter the compressor, resulting in costly repairs or, worse, a permanent failure of your central air conditioning.
