When the time comes for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a professional is a crucial step in making sure you’re selecting the right system for your home. Every home has its own unique demands on a cooling system. Installing an incorrectly sized system will negatively impact your comfort, and your utility bills. So what plays a role into a home’s load calculation?
Our experts take into account a variety factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system your home needs. We look at aspects 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 match you with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always ideal. A system that is higher capacity than necessary may generate a number of issues.
- It could cost you more money to run.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to operate 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 affect 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 ensure that your air conditioner, ductwork and registers are all working 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.
