When the time comes for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a professional is a critical step in ensuring you’re choosing 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 expenses. So what plays a role 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 factors 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 set you up with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always better. A system that is bigger than necessary could make a variety of issues.
- It may cost you more money to operate.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to work as long so it will continually be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your unit.
- A unit that doesn’t run as long also doesn’t dehumidify the air, which may affect your comfort.
- If your system is too small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the set 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 operating in sync to keep you comfortable. Load calculation was once based solely on square footage, and while that is a portion of the puzzle, there are many variables we factor in to find the right products for your home.
