When the time comes for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a pro is a critical step in ensuring you’re choosing the correct system for your home. Every home has its own individual demands on a cooling system. Installing an incorrectly sized system will negatively impact your comfort, and your utility bills. So what goes 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 area, 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 better. A system that is bigger than necessary may generate a number of problems.
- It might cost you more money to use.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to operate as long so it will constantly be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your system.
- A unit that doesn’t work as long also fails to dehumidify the air, which may impact your comfort.
- If your system is too small, 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 operating in sync to keep you comfortable. Load calculation was once based exclusively on square footage, and while that is a portion of the puzzle, there are many variables we factor in to find the correct products for your home.
