When the time comes for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by an expert is a critical step in ensuring you’re picking the right system for your home. Every home has its own specific demands on a cooling system. Installing an inappropriately sized system will hurt your comfort, and your utility bills. So what plays a role into a home’s load calculation?
Our pros take into account a number of factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you will need. We look at factors such as: the environment of your area, square footage of your home, design, insulation levels, roof type, size and location of windows, sun exposure and the habits of and schedule of everyone inside the home.
We want to match you with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always better. A system that is higher capacity than necessary may generate a variety of problems.
- It might cost you more money to use.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to run as long so it will constantly be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your air conditioner.
- A unit that doesn’t run as long also won’t dehumidify the air, which may impact your comfort.
- If your system is too small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the desired temperature.
Ensuring correct air flow is the key to your home’s comfort. A professional room by room load calculation will help to make sure that your air conditioner, ductwork and registers are all running in sync to keep you comfortable. Load calculation was once based solely on square footage, and while that is a part of the puzzle, there are many variables we factor in to find the best products for your home.
