What Is Needed to Add Central Air?
Central air conditioning may seem like a simple addition. From choosing the correct unit, to determining the placement of the unit, it is easy to overlook one vital step in the process: does your home have enough power?
There are times where an additional breaker needs to be added so enough electricity can support the new ac unit. Homes that have electrical panels that are much smaller than newer ones may require an upgrade. Other panels that are much newer still may not support the central air conditioner.
Contacting an electrician to determine what you home needs is the best step you can take to providing your home with central air conditioning. It is also the safest route! An electrician with the proper training and experience should handle these larger jobs.
Not choosing the right person for the job could hurt your wallet in the long run.
