- Not Examining the Whole System: Some technicians focus only on the individual components of your AC system. However, an experienced AC contractor knows that all the elements of your home can potentially affect the system’s ability to heat and cool indoor spaces. If your insulation is old or worn out, it might impede AC system function by allowing cool air to escape. Homeowners might need to upgrade their insulation to newer, more effective options in order to improve comfort and save energy.
- Ignoring Ventilation: One mistake rookie AC technicians make is not examining the ventilation system throughout the whole house. The most effective ventilation systems support air circulation while balancing positive and negative air pressure. If these issues aren’t addressed, homeowners might find themselves dealing with excess moisture and poor air quality throughout the property.
- Choosing the Wrong AC Size: A system that’s too big or too small not only fails to cool the home properly, but it also allows moisture to build up in the air. In the long run, excess moisture can damage your property and impact your family’s health. At Del-Air, we specialize in working with families to choose the appropriate AC size and style for their needs.
