When the time arrives for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a pro is a critical 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 inappropriately sized system will negatively affect your comfort, and your utility costs. So what factors into a home’s load calculation?
Our experts take into account a number of factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system your home needs. We look at factors such as: the environment 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 ideal. A system that is higher capacity than necessary can make a variety of issues.
- It may cost you more money to operate.
- 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 chosen 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 working in sync to keep you comfortable. Load calculation was once based exclusively on square footage, and while that is a part of the puzzle, there are a host of variables we factor in to find the correct products for your home.
