When the time comes for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a professional is a critical step in making sure you’re choosing the right system for your home. Every home has its own specific demands on a cooling system. Installing an incorrectly 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 number of factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system your home needs. We look at things such as: the weather of your town, 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 larger than necessary could generate a variety of issues.
- It might cost you more money to operate.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to run as long so it will continuously be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your system.
- A unit that doesn’t operate as long also won’t dehumidify the air, which might impact your comfort.
- If your system is too little, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the chosen temperature.
Ensuring appropriate air flow is the key to your home’s comfort. A professional room by room load calculation will help to make 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 part of the puzzle, there are many variables we factor in to find the best products for your home.
