Air con installation can be simple, and easy do it yourself project. However for more complex central air conditioning installation you will require specialized technicians to do the job.
Here are some simple tips provided by Adaptair air conditioning installation that will guide you in your endeavor of successfully installing an air conditioning unit.
Selecting A Location
When selecting a location, the first thing you should consider is whether you’re installing an indoor or an outdoor unit. For an indoor unit, make sure there are no obstacles to installation within the vicinity.
Ideally, the unit should be installed two meters above the floor, and it goes without saying its location should allow for good air circulation, meaning, its vents should not be closely positioned to anything that could block air flow to the rest of the room.
For an outdoor unit, the base and housing should be securely installed on a level surface.
No plants or animals should be positioned near it, as the heat coming from the condenser will adversely affect these.
The outdoor unit should be firmly fixed on its cement base. This becomes increasingly important as you go higher up, because the strong winds in high elevations can physically move both the base and the air conditioner hence damaging your unit, not to mention increasing the risk of accidents.
An indoor unit should be leveled properly after it has been installed, to prevent water from dripping into the interior of the building.
Connection Of Pipes And Wiring
The pipes that come with the air conditioner all have to be connected securely to prevent leaks and other malfunctions. Usually, you would hear a clicking sound once the pipe is installed properly.
On the other hand, wires should be covered with insulating material, especially the connections.
Afterwards, both pipes and wires should be wrapped up and securely fixed into the wall to prevent accidents.
