14 Dec What Should An Air Conditioning Contractor Do Before an Air Conditioning Replacement in Your Houston Home?
Did you know what a comfortable, healthy house requires? Many people mistakenly think it is only about air conditioning. The reality is that heat, humidity, and pollutants in the air must also be analyzed for how they get into the home. A proper air conditioning replacement in Houston must take care of all the factors that affect the performance of air conditioning equipment, as well as the health and safety of your living environment. This is why LiveWell Experts, the top air conditioning experts in Houston, recommend a residential energy assessment and home performance inspection with each replacement.
Before an air conditioning contactor starts implementing steps to replace air conditioner in your home, though, we suggest identifying any issues with the house that do not directly relate to AC equipment but affect the environment in the home and the performance of your air conditioner.
For example, pollutants can get into the house through little, almost invisible holes between the ceiling and the walls. They might be leaking from the ducts and the attic. An air conditioning contractor who is also trained in a home performance inspection will be able to detect any leaks using special equipment. Then, if this professional detects any leaks, they have to be properly sealed.
Another possible issue could be even more serious. When a furnace or water heater does not burn well, it releases carbon monoxide and other harmful components into the air you breathe daily. They do not have a smell, so you may not know they are in the air. Even very low doses can cause serious health issues. Safety is a number one priority when it comes to inspecting the house before preplacing an AC system.
Your air conditioning equipment will work more efficiently when the insulation in the house is also done correctly. At LiveWell Experts, we conduct a thorough inspection of the attic and use specialized equipment to detect insulation voids inside the walls. Some issues may be minor and can wait, while in some other cases we will strongly advise a customer to replace insulation in the walls. It is up to every homeowner to make decisions on what will be done in the residence and when. Our job is to inform our customers and advise on the priority for consideration.
