Like commercial aircons the performance of any HDB aircon depends on how well it is installed. In order for your unit to function properly, it is extremely important for you to follow certain guidelines when having an aircon installation done for your HDB flat. Some of these include the following:
Check Your Home’s Electrical Supply Rating
Any aircon installed will usually require a heavy amount of power compared to other home appliances. But if your electrical supply is unable to accommodate your unit’s rate of energy consumption, you could end up experiencing major electrical problems. Thus, be sure to check your home’s electrical supply rating before having an HDB aircon installation performed. Take note that most HDB flats constructed before 1994 have a supply rating of 30 amperes. On the other hand, most of the flats made after 1994 can accommodate a total electrical load of up to 40 amperes.
Check If You Have an Outlet for Your Outdoor Unit
To ensure that your entire aircon system can work properly, you should check that your home has a power socket where you can plug in your outdoor unit. In addition, check if the socket’s rating is enough to provide your unit with enough power. Some flats provide an aircon ledge for outdoor units and have a corresponding socket installed beside it. For others, an electrical outlet is usually installed near the window.
In case you are unable to find an outlet for your outdoor unit, you might need to have additional wiring done so that you can enable your installed HDB aircon to function.
Make Sure the Aircon Is Not Concealed
Whatever aesthetic purposes you have in mind, you should never install your HDB aircon in an area where it might be concealed. Otherwise, the airflow can become restricted which can cause it to experience several aircon emergencies in the long run. By ensuring that your unit is installed in a wide and open area, you will be able to ensure that it works properly and that you are provided with enough cool air.
Make Sure There Are No Hotspots
Based on the laws of science, cold air tends to sink since it has more density whereas warm air tends to rise. Because of this, it is best that you have your HDB aircon installed in a location where it is positioned high up. That way, it can cool your home as widely as possible so that you can feel refreshed no matter which area you are in. Remember that installing your aircon closer to the floor can lead to hot spots being created which can cause you to be uncomfortably warm.
Check If Your Installed Aircon Is Working Properly
After your technician has finished installing your HDB aircon, inspect it as closely as possible to ensure that no common aircon issues are present. Your unit should be able to distribute air freely and should have a gas pipe and condensate pipe which is long enough to prevent any aircon leaks. It should also be properly insulated to prevent high energy consumption and the outdoor unit should be well-installed to ensure enough space for cleaning.
