When the time comes for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a professional is a critical step in ensuring you’re selecting the best system for your home. Every home has its own specific demands on a cooling system. Installing an improperly sized system will negatively impact your comfort, and your utility costs. So what goes into a home’s load calculation?
Our pros take into account many factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you’ll need. We look at aspects 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 the people living inside the home.
We want to match you with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always ideal. A system that is bigger than necessary can create a variety of issues.
- It might cost you more money to use.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to work 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 operate as long also won’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 make 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 piece of the puzzle, there are many variables we factor in to find the right products for your home.
