Learn The 3 Mistakes Rookie AC Technicians Make


The fact is that not all air conditioning technicians are created equal. To avoid future issues when hiring an AC contractor, take some time to learn about these common mistakes made by inexperienced, fresh-out-of-school AC contractors, or shoddy contractors just looking to make a buck.

  • Not examining the whole house: Some AC companies tend to focus on the individual components of your home’s heating and cooling system. However, an experienced AC contractor knows that the home works as a system, and it’s important to consider more than the air conditioning unit when something goes wrong. As a result, technicians need to assess your home size, insulation, and sealing, among other factors, if they hope to keep your AC running well.
  • Ignoring ventilation and air circulation: Another mistake some AC contractors can make is to be consumed with heating and cooling but fail to take ventilation needs into account. To keep your air quality high and your family healthy, it’s important for technicians to balance positive and negative air pressure and make certain the air is circulating. Examining the ductwork is also essential for protecting your air quality in the upcoming months.
  • Improperly sizing the AC system: Relying on “rule-of-thumb” sizing methods is a no-no, and it’s the lazy way to size an air conditioning system. The fact is that every home is unique, and rule-of-thumb sizing rarely works. At Del-Air, we consider a wide array of factors, including home size and insulation, and sit down with every homeowner to discuss the best option available.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
