When it’s time for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a pro is a critical step in making sure you’re selecting the correct system for your home. Every home has its own individual 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 pros take into account a variety factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you will need. We look at factors such as: the climate 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 better. A system that is higher capacity than necessary can generate a host of problems.
- It may cost you more money to use.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to operate as long so it will continuously be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your air conditioner.
- A unit that doesn’t run as long also fails to dehumidify the air, which might diminish your comfort.
- If your system is too little, 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 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 part of the puzzle, there are a host of variables we factor in to find the correct products for your home.
