When it’s time for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a professional is an important step in making certain that you’re selecting the correct system for your home. Every home has its own individual demands on a cooling system. Installing an inappropriately sized system will negatively affect your comfort, and your utility costs. So what plays a role into a home’s load calculation?
Our pros take into account many factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system your home needs. We look at things 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 the people living inside the home.
We want to pair you with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always ideal. A system that is larger than necessary can create a variety of problems.
- It could cost you more money to run.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to operate as long so it will continuously be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your unit.
- A unit that doesn’t work as long also won’t dehumidify the air, which could affect your comfort.
- If your system isn’t big enough, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the desired temperature.
Ensuring appropriate 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 exclusively on square footage, and while that is a portion of the puzzle, there are a number of variables we factor in to find the right products for your home.
