When the time arrives for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a pro is an important step in ensuring you’re picking the best system for your home. Every home has its own unique demands on a cooling system. Installing an improperly sized system will negatively impact your comfort, and your utility costs. So what plays a role into a home’s load calculation?
Our pros take into account a variety factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you will need. We look at things such as: the climate 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 larger than necessary may make a host of concerns.
- It may cost you more money to operate.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to operate 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 work as long also fails to dehumidify the air, which might impact your comfort.
- If your system is too little, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the set temperature.
Ensuring appropriate air flow is the key to your home’s comfort. A professional room by room load calculation will help to ensure 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 correct products for your home.
