Installation - the most important consideration, even over the brand of equipment!Improper installation can void out any benefits provided by even the best HVAC equipment. Below are just a few common problems caused by incompetence or improper installations (data provided by the studies listed):

Tip: Be Leery Of A Contractor Who Bases Estimates Merely On House Size Or Vague Rules Of Thumb.
Beware of Improper Installations by Those "Other Guys"Below on the left side are two examples of poorly installed systems by local contractors. These contractors would not fix their mistakes and left the homeowners with systems that never functioned properly. On the right, you’ll see how Ellington Air Conditioning & Heat reinstalled the same equipment to the manufacturer’s specifications, saving the homeowners significant energy dollars each month. The jobs were completed professionally and neatly with minimum disruption to the homeowner.
1. Due to poor installation, the copper lines will prevent the removal of the evaporator fan motor.
Copper lines, once installed, cannot be moved unless they are removed and reinstalled.
2. Customer purchased a 16 MPG system but this system was only performing at approximately a 10 MPG rating due to airflow problems.
3. Air cleaner was improperly installed, leaving only 4” of space off the ground for the air to return into the unit.
Leaving ONLY 4” for the return air is not adequate for proper airflow to the system. Manufacturers require 16” as a MINIMUM for airflow space.
4. Live electrical wiring was left exposed by the installing contractor.
1. Repaired electrical by relocating and bringing everything up to code.
2. Caulked doors to prevent air leaks and/or intrusion.
Ran lines to allow removal of internal parts and repairs.
3. Properly installed float switch and insulated drain line for proper drainage.
4. Installed unit at the proper height for increased airflow.
