Here in Decatur, GA, scheduling air conditioning installation is a necessity for the cooling season, but many homeowners want to install their new system themselves to make sure the job is completed quickly. Do-it-yourself projects are popular among homeowners looking to save some money and gain experience working with a new medium. While some home installation jobs may be suitable for beginners looking to gain experience in a new field, air conditioning installation is not a do-it-yourself job. The quickest way to ensure your air conditioner is installed correctly is by calling a skilled technician with years of experience.
The first reason you should allow a professional to install your air conditioner is that you may not choose the proper size. You must have the correct cooling capacity for your home in order to cool it completely, and a system that is too small will not be able to handle the job. However, your air conditioner will continue to run to attempt to meet your temperature needs, causing wear and tear to your system which will ultimately result in a shorter lifespan. On the other hand, a system that is too large will run for shorter periods of time. When a system turns on and off frequently, it is called “short cycling.” This damages the compressor, a major part of your air conditioner that is costly to replace.
Furthermore, air conditioners are complicated systems. You must be able to mount the units correctly, charge refrigerant (a chemical that can only be handled by licensed technicians), and ensure proper wiring, which is not only difficult but also unsafe when not done by a professional. Loose mounts, low refrigerant, and improper wiring may all lead to major problems like compressor damage.
