Some important tips for AC installation at home

As the mercury soars, and as it gets hotter each day, the last thing you want is to have any concern with your air conditioner. One way to ensure there is no distress is to invest in a leading air conditioning brand and model, like the Voltas AC (1.5 ton) model which is an excellent option for Indian homes. Once that is done, you also have to see to it that you correctly install your AC, whether a window AC or split AC, which adheres to certified standards. 

Next time, keep in mind these important tips while getting your AC installation done.

1.      Check the wall strength that will hold the AC

Always remember to check your wall strength where you desire to place your new air conditioner. It is important that the interior unit of the air conditioner be installed or mounted on a wall that can hold its weight. It is unwise to install air conditioners on weak, uneven and false walls. 

2.      Install air conditioner in an appropriate location of your home

The location of your air conditioner has a big impact on its energy and cooling efficiency. While it may seem convenient to put your AC system in a corner of the house, that location will force your appliance to work harder to cool your home. Otherwise, look into investing in a high tonnage AC like 1.5 ton AC  which uses less power to cool your home.

3.      Ensure that there is proper space left between wall and AC unit

During AC installation, you have to be careful about the distance between the AC and the wall. Preferably, leave a gap of 15 centimetres between the upper part of the AC and its sides in order to enable optimum airflow. You have to follow a similar principle while installing the outdoor unit of the split AC.

4.      Maintain the right distance between both the units

In order to ensure that the air conditioner offers optimum cooling, you must confirm the ideal separation distance between the outdoor unit of the AC, and its indoor unit before installation. It is prudent to keep the two units as close as possible to ensure faster flow of your AC’s coolant. If both the units are separated by more than 15 metres, it will negatively impact the cooling capability of the AC.

5.      Correct location of outdoor unit

For proper cooling, it is essential that the outdoor parts of your AC are away from direct, harsh sunlight. Another point to consider is that the outdoor unit of split AC must be placed on a smooth and firm surface. Otherwise, it will lead to excessive shaking, which can lead to the cracking of copper pipes, coolant leakage and even compressor damage. 

In conclusion, take effort to install your new air conditioner, because if it is not installed properly, it can result in disappointment from a good AC purchase. Furthermore, you can also take certain preventive measures, such as closing the blinds so that the sun rays do not fall directly into the room.You can now purchase your favourite AC model without worrying too much about the costs involved.
