Factors to Consider During Aircon Installation

It can be tricky when it comes to selecting the right experts for your aircon installation. We advise customers to do their due diligence and research before engaging in any aircon installation projects.

Below are a few important factors to consider when you decide to engage a contractor for aircon installation:

1. Types and Brands of Aircon

    • The first obvious factor in the cost for your aircon installation project is the type of aircon. If you are getting a commercial, high powered aircon unit, be prepared to pay more for it compared to a smaller powered, home used type of aircon.

    • Normal Room Aircon: A very affordable and popular option is to get this type of aircon, its lifespan being generally around 10-15 years. It is recommended that you do aircon servicing for those units regularly.
    • Central Aircon: Central aircon are commonly used in commercial buildings and are usually equipped for high-capacity usage. They have a lifespan of around 15-20 years.
    • Evaporative Cooler: Such coolers are a good option for homeowners living in a relatively dry area. It gives off water vapour, adding humidity in the air, unlike regular aircon. Its lifespan is around 15-20 years, and usually, requires more frequent aircon maintenance.
    • Ductless Mini-Split Aircon: This type of aircon is the most common type of aircon found in Singapore homes. They have a lifespan of about 15-20 years and their compressors are located outside of the home unit.

2. Power Consumption

Air conditioners are well-known for their huge power consumption. Choosing the right aircon that is suited for the size of your room can provide significant energy savings in the long-term.

3. Size and Location

It goes without saying that the bigger rooms require more power to cool it down. Sizes of the aircon and types of aircon used in a particular size and location will affect the operating costs.

An aircon’s cooling capacity is determined by a standard British Thermal Unit (BTU) rating. The number of BTUs needed for a certain room is calculated by multiplying the square foot of the room by 35.

For example, an area of around 150 square feet needs 5,000 BTUs for the aircon installation. Warmer areas of a house, such as those facing an afternoon sun, will require more power (and hence, higher cost) to cool the area.

Common Mistakes by New Homeowners During Installation

When it comes to installing an aircon, we can see many customers repeating the same mistakes over and over again. Below are a few of the examples:

When it comes to installing an aircon, we see many customers repeating the same mistakes over and over again.

  • Choosing The Wrong Type/Size of Aircon
    • A mismatch of aircon power and room size can result in the room being unable to cool down or cooled too much. Power consumption is usually more than the efficient level.
  • Insecure Installation of Unit
    • Both the supporting wall and the air conditioning unit should have the fundamental support to ensure the unit is safely secured. An aircon unit that is not properly secured is a safety hazard.
  • Improper Insulation
    • An aircon unit will consume more power due to bad insulation. This is because it will require more work to cool down the surrounding areas. Typically, window aircon systems require insulation foams to be filled to cover the surrounding open spaces. Whereas for ductless mini-split air conditioners, adequately sized ducts should be installed depending on the load circulation.
  • Leakages
    • Leakages can occur in some parts of the aircon system. Though your unit may be new, it is important to check for any refrigerant leak. If there is any, engage gas top-up service as soon as possible.
