When it’s time for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a professional is a critical step in making certain that you’re selecting the right system for your home. Every home has its own individual demands on a cooling system. Installing an incorrectly sized system will negatively affect your comfort, and your utility costs. So what factors into a home’s load calculation?
Our professionals take into account a variety factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you’ll need. We look at aspects such as: the weather 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 all the people inside the home.
We want to set you up with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always the best. A system that is higher capacity than necessary could create a variety of problems.
- It may cost you more money to operate.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to work as long so it will continuously be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your air conditioner.
- A unit that doesn’t operate as long also fails to dehumidify the air, which could diminish your comfort.
- If your system isn’t big enough, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the desired temperature.
Ensuring proper air flow is the key to your home’s comfort. A professional room by room load calculation will help to be sure that your air conditioner, ductwork and registers are all working in sync to keep you comfortable. Load calculation was once based only on square footage, and while that is a portion of the puzzle, there are a number of variables we factor in to find the best products for your home.
