Yes and no or perhaps it depends. Is one car brand better than another? It depends on the purchaser. Do you want a BMW, Cadillac or do you prefer a Yugo or Isuzu. That probably wasn’t fair to Isuzu, sorry. The real problems typically come from an unprofessional and untrained installation. The issue with the cheap units isn’t that their cheap, it’s that the people putting them in are cheap and are skipping every step they can to save money on the installation. It really is true that only the most wealthily homeowners can afford the cheapest installation. That’s because they can pay for a replacement again and again.Factory trained employees with contant updates to keep them up on everything new and improved.
My new air conditioner seems to run all day long and it still will not cool my house comfortably
There are several possible reasons. Among them are a lack of airflow due to an undersized, broken, or restricted duct system. The system may have too much Freon in it, overcharged. Do your lights dim when the outdoor unit turns on? Did you get a permit? If you didn’t, get a city permit and an inspection now. You can purchase the permit yourself and when the inspector comes to your home, he or she will write a list of problems. You can then call the company that installed the system incorrectly to fix it, pay for the permit and then stay for a re-inspection. If they refuse, you can file with the Contractor’s State License Board and have the mater settled in arbitration. It is free to you, just little leg work. The majority of systems that are installed without inspections are installed wrong and these systems generally do not cool and heat as well as they should and they cost you much more to operate. If the air conditioner was recently installed and never has worked properly, the chances are that it’s too small to handle the heat load of your house or a very poor installation. Unfortunately, many air conditioning companies today cut out the necessary first step of running proper heat load calculations on the home prior to sizing the equipment. If you have purchased a unit which is too small to handle the load the only thing to do is replace it with the proper size unit.
