5 Central AC Installation Mistakes To Avoid

by Kevin Harris UGI Heating Cooling & Plumbing

The average cost of installing a Central Air Conditioning System is between $5000 and $7000.

Now, upon installing such an expensive system if it starts to malfunction within a few days, would it be worth it?

Central air conditioners circulate cool air through a system of supply and return ducts.

These supply ducts and registers carry cooled air from the air conditioner to the home.

Central AC is costlier than a window AC. But to avoid that extra cost, people try to deploy some risky strategies, which may backfire.

5 Mistakes You Should Avoid At All Costs

  1. Not choosing the right type of central AC

There are many types of Central ACs. The two most commonly used are:-

  • Split System

  • Package System

A split system has it's cooling parts of the unit inside the home, and it's heating parts outside of the home. With a split system, the condenser and compressor are housed outside.

While, a package system is self-contained and the entire unit is installed outside at ground level, or on top of the roof.

Thus, deciding the right type is of utmost importance.

2. Not choosing the right size

Central AC systems are measured in tons. This measurement is based on the unit's ability to cool your home.

A larger system than the recommended size may end up forcing your system to run constantly in short bursts. This can harm your system.

Taking professional advice is always recommended before choosing the size.

Or, you can measure your room size and calculate the recommended size with reference to the Climate Zone Chart.

3. Purchasing from unknown brands

As central ACs cost more than $5000, people try to purchase the system from unknown brands whose costs are low.

This is a wrong practice and you should avoid it at any cost.

Central AC system is a long-term investment. Thus, purchasing from a reputed brand which offers good after sales service is of great importance.

Also, these less expensive brands have low-quality materials used in the system. It can be hazardous in some situations.

4. Not planning carefully

To avoid consultation calls, you should not refrain from taking expert advice.

Although it may cost you little more than your budget, but the advice provided will be worth every penny.

It can help you avoid those extra maintenance costs that start to arise after a few months of functioning.

Also, security threats are also reduced considerably due to the proper set of system installations.

5. Choosing non-NATE technicians.

Getting your system installed from non-NATE certified technicians may make matters worse.

Their inexperience can cost you a fortune.

Thus, always opt for NATE certified technicians, as they get your job done with utmost efficiency and care.
