Fresno, CA Air Conditioning Installation

It seems simple enough: you set your thermostat to “cool”, set a temperature and then let your air conditioning system go to work. But what actually happens is a complex process that uses a special chemical – refrigerant – to remove the hot air from your home and return it as cool air. This is the basic process of air conditioning, but it doesn’t nearly cover what is needed for a professional air conditioning installation for your home. We can make sure that your new AC is appropriately sized and that it works well for years to come. Contact Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning today.

Sizing Your AC for Installation

Air conditioners are not one–size–fits–all, and contrary to popular thought, bigger isn’t always better. In fact, when you install an AC that is either too big or too small, you could end up with a lot of problems; this is why correct sizing is so critical for any air conditioning installation. When you work with an installation expert on our team, you aren’t just hiring someone to install your pre–purchased AC, you are hiring an expert who will be with you from start to finish, including calculating your home’s cooling load. Many people will tell you that you only need to know the square footage of your home to determine what size air conditioner you need; this simply isn’t true. A number of factors are part of a cooling load calculation, and we know what these factors are and how to calculate them correctly.

Items to Consider When It Comes to AC Installation

There are some factors to consider when installing a new air conditioning system. Some factors may be:

  • Do you want a ducted or ductless system?
  • Do you want a system that can both heat and cool?
  • Do you plan to expand your home in the next few years?
  • Are you concerned about your environmental impact?
  • Are you looking for a system that both heats and cools?

These kinds of questions are important because they speak to the type of air conditioner you will want to install. For instance, if you don’t have a home with ductwork, do you want to install ductwork, which can be costly, or would you rather explore the options of a ductless system? Another factor to consider is energy efficiency. Today’s air conditioners have a minimum SEER of 13, but SEER ratings can go as high as 23; do you know how energy efficient you want to be? Working with a trained specialist on our team can help you answer these questions and point you toward the type of system that will work best for your home.
