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 choosing the right system for your home. Every home has its own specific demands on a cooling system. Installing an incorrectly sized system will hurt your comfort, and your utility expenses. So what plays a role into a home’s load calculation?
Our pros take into account a number of factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you’ll need. We look at factors such as: the environment of your region, 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 pair you with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always the best. A system that is higher capacity than necessary could generate a variety of concerns.
- It might cost you more money to use.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to work as long so it will constantly be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your unit.
- A unit that doesn’t operate as long also won’t dehumidify the air, which could diminish your comfort.
- If your system isn’t big enough, 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 be sure that your air conditioner, ductwork and registers are all working 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 a host of variables we factor in to find the right products for your home.
