Like many contractors, Healthy Home Heating & Cooling, LLC, gets its share of central air system inquiries during the heat of summer. That is exactly why now is the best time to schedule your home’s central air conditioner installation, before our installation team’s calendar fills up.
Central air conditioner installation is a technical process that requires expertise ranging from electrical proficiency through product knowledge. Healthy Home’s specialists can ensure your unit is the appropriate size for your home.
“Central air conditioner installation is not a case of one size fits all,” explains Nick Conner, owner of Healthy Home. “There is more that goes into the decision than square footage alone. Our technicians study your home to ensure your investment in a system is just right.”
Numerous variables factor into central air conditioner installation
While square footage isn’t the sole determining factor in arriving at the optimal central air system size, it certainly is a major component of the calculation. The central air conditioner installation process begins with determining the appropriate tonnage of the unit. In addition to square footage, the presence of windows facing the afternoon sun, available shade and other variables play into the final decision.
In this case, one ton is the ability of your central air system to cool 12,000 BTUs (British Thermal Units) in an hour. In layman’s terms, that means a 1-ton air conditioner should be able to cool 12,000 pounds of water by one degree every hour.
A simple method for calculating this for your house is to take your square footage (2,000 sq. feet) and multiply by 15 = 30,000, then divide by 12,000 = 2.5. Your technician may recommend a 2.5-ton unit for your central air conditioner installation.
“That is a very rough method of estimating the correct system size for your home,” Conner cautions. “The best course of action is to schedule an appointment with one of our technicians to ensure your central air conditioner installation is the best fit for your home.”
