When the time comes for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a pro is a critical step in ensuring you’re selecting the correct system for your home. Every home has its own individual demands on a cooling system. Installing an improperly sized system will negatively affect your comfort, and your utility bills. 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 better. A system that is bigger than necessary could generate a host of problems.
- It could cost you more money to run.
- 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 unit.
- 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 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 solely on square footage, and while that is a piece of the puzzle, there are a number of variables we factor in to find the correct products for your home.
