Consider System Matching in Your Next Air Conditioner Replacement04/13/2015To keep your home sweat-free in the summer, you rely on your air conditioner. When it’s time for an air conditioner replacement, talk to the experienced pros at WM J Kraus & Son to ensure your system is designed properly, and correctly matched size-wise with equipment that is designed to work together correctly. System matching is notably important if you are only replacing one piece of a system as you want to make sure any new component works hand-in-hand with the rest. While air conditioner replacement isn’t always seen as fun, it can let you take your home comfort to the next level. A Match Made in HVAC Heaven WM J Kraus & Son offers Lennox® air conditioners and heat pumps that are engineered to work in tandem with a appropriately matched indoor unit. A properly matched system will help keep everything running efficiently when paired with an indoor furnace/evaporator coil or air handler. This means you’ll get peak comfort. It’s important to ensure your dealer considers size with system matching. Any HVAC system can only function at its best when it is sized properly to meet the unique needs of your home. Considering Size You may think that when it comes to the size of your air conditioner replacement, you only need to make sure it’s not too small to cool your entire home. In reality, an air conditioner that is too large for your home cycles on and off frequently. This continuous cycling makes it hard to dehumidify the air, leaving your home more humid than you’d like. Undersized air conditioner replacements have a whole different issue. They have to run continuously in an effort to cool your home and may not be able to accomplish the task on some of the hottest summer days. You could end up paying more money for your monthly power bills, and your system will likely not last as long as an appropriately sized one. So, how can you find the perfectly sized system for your home? It’s simple. Leave it to the experts at WM J Kraus & Son in Keokuk. We’ll come to your home to perform a load calculation that takes into account the square footage of your house, how well your windows are insulated, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof as well as many other factors. When the time comes for an air conditioner replacement, be sure to prioritize system matching so you can find the best match for your home.
