When the time comes for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by an expert is a crucial step in making sure you’re selecting the best system for your home. Every home has its own unique demands on a cooling system. Installing an incorrectly sized system will negatively affect your comfort, and your utility costs. So what factors 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 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 all the people inside the home.
We want to pair you with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always the best. A system that is larger than necessary can make a host of issues.
- It could cost you more money to use.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to operate as long so it will continually be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your system.
- A unit that doesn’t run as long also doesn’t dehumidify the air, which might diminish your comfort.
- If your system is too little, 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 ensure that your air conditioner, ductwork and registers are all running in sync to keep you comfortable. Load calculation was once based exclusively on square footage, and while that is a piece of the puzzle, there are many variables we factor in to find the best products for your home.
