Proper installation and care of energy-saving central air conditioners improve efficiency. Better efficiency lowers your monthly electric bills. Here is a checklist to follow for new home HVAC systems:
- Ask your HVAC contractor to locate the outdoor condenser where it can be protected from shrubbery, snow and rain.
- Make sure there is space around the site for installation, service and maintenance.
- Cover outdoor units in the winter to shield them from ice and snow.
