A Word from Our Expert, Kerry Schlegel, on the Importance of Proper Installation

A Word From Our Experts - Mastrers Heating and CoolingDid you know that having our Decatur heating and cooling specialists upgrade your old, energy-consuming HVAC system with one that is high-efficiency has the same positive effect on the environment as not driving your car for an entire year? The environment isn’t the only thing that benefits from people operating clean, efficient, properly maintained HVAC systems: it’s good for your wallet, good for your home, and good news on your energy bills too. In fact, when compared to an old, outdated, run-down system, a new one can save you hundreds of dollars on your energy bills each year.

With so many key benefits of having a healthy HVAC system in place, it’s easy to see why regular maintenance would be important. However, there is another crucial factor that must be taken into account as well: the quality of the initial installation. All of the benefits that a new system can provide will be void if that system isn’t installed properly by a certified, experienced professional like ours. Improper installation can lead to your system using more energy than it should, it will contribute to premature wear and tear, and it will be at a much higher risk of malfunction, leaving you open to breakdowns in the most uncomfortable outdoor temperatures.

Incorrect Installation of HVAC Systems

When a heating repair service installs an HVAC system or any components of one, it’s critical that it be done properly. Improper installation can result in several issues that can put your family in danger, cost you money, and shorten the longevity of your system as a whole:

  • Air duct leakage can be caused by careless installation. Improper duct installation results in much of your cooled, or warmed air, blowing out of where your ducts run instead of through your air vents. This includes basements, crawl spaces, and the like. Improper duct installation will cause your system to run longer, work harder, and kick on much more often than it should. You will also notice an increase in the amount of money you have to pay on your energy bills!
  • Improper charge is another effect of improper HVAC installation. Careless installation can cause the refrigerant to improperly charge, which will compromise your system’s ability to operate efficiently and safely. It will also contribute to higher energy bills, and considerably shorten the lifespan of your furnace and/or air conditioner.
  • Low airflow is a problem that can result from incorrect installation or repair work. When the airflow through your system is not at the level it should be, your furnace and air conditioner will turn on more often and run longer every time in order to bring the indoor temperature to what it should be. Ultimately, low airflow will cause various rooms in your home to feel uncomfortable.
