Air conditioning systems are a lifesaver during the hot summer months. However, if they are not installed properly, they can cause several problems and cause headaches for you. That’s why you should always hire a professional like Emergency Master Plumbing & Air to handle your AC installation in Surprise, AZ. If the installation is not done according to manufacturer standards, then you could be facing the following issues.

Electrical Problems

An improperly installed AC unit can cause electrical problems in your home. The air conditioner needs to be connected to an electrical outlet to work, and if the installation was done haphazardly, these intricate electrical wirings can cause accidents.

Poor Air Quality

Another adverse effect of improper AC installation is the poor air quality in your home. It happens because the air conditioner circulates the same air inside your home. If this air is not properly filtered, or the ductwork is shoddy, dust, pollen, and other allergens that can trigger asthma and allergy attacks are likely to be present in your home.

High Energy Bills

When a cooling system is not set up per manufacturer specifications, it won’t work as efficiently. This is because the AC unit will have to work harder to cool your home, which uses more energy.

Premature AC Unit Failure

With improper installation, the AC will be overworked and will not last as long as it should. Sometimes, it may even need replacement sooner than expected.


Finally, improper AC installation can lead to injuries. The AC unit can be very heavy; if it falls on someone, it’s a trip to the hospital for them. Additionally, if you don’t do the wiring properly, it can electrocute anyone touching it.
