SAD BUT TRUE- THERE’S A 90% CHANCE YOUR AC IS INSTALLED INCORRECTLY
Did you know that about 50% of all the money we spend on heating and cooling is due to inefficiencies in the way these systems are installed?
It’s a sad but true fact. A whopping 25% of your hard-earned money is literally leaking out of the duct work. The other 25% comes from other installation problems with the units themselves.
The biggest problem according to John Proctor of Proctor Engineering Group is that the vast majority of heating and cooling systems are improperly installed to being with. A poor installation leads to wasted energy, future reliability problems with the units themselves, and of course a whole lot of wasted money.
The good news is that there are several things that any homeowner can do to begin the auditing process of their HVAC system.
The best thing a homeowner can do is due diligence. Make sure you have a reputable company install your system in the first place.
Have a licensed professional check your HVAC system for energy efficiency by verifying the original installation. John Proctor has found that items like the compressor, coil, and capacitor will last much longer when compared to exactly the same HVAC systems that were installed by a lazy or incompetent HVAC contractors.
