Air conditioner electrical installations in Portland Maine
What is needed to add central air?
Central air conditioning may seem like a simple addition. Air conditioning can add value to your home if you are looking to resell and even save you money. From choosing the correct unit, to determining the placement of the unit, it is easy to overlook one vital step in the process. Each home is different and determining that your home can provide enough power to your new unit safely is necessary.
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 having the right person do the job could be damaging.
