When the time comes for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a pro is a crucial step in making sure you’re picking the correct system for your home. Every home has its own unique demands on a cooling system. Installing an inappropriately sized system will negatively impact your comfort, and your utility expenses. So what factors into a home’s load calculation?
Our professionals take into account many factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you’ll need. 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 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 ideal. A system that is bigger than necessary can make a variety of problems.
- It may cost you more money to run.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to run as long so it will continually be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your air conditioner.
- A unit that doesn’t work 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 desired 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 a number of variables we factor in to find the best products for your home.
