When it’s time for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a pro is an important step in ensuring you’re selecting the correct system for your home. Every home has its own individual demands on a cooling system. Installing an inappropriately sized system will negatively impact your comfort, and your utility costs. So what factors into a home’s load calculation?
Our experts 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 environment 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 set you up with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always ideal. A system that is bigger than necessary could make a variety of concerns.
- It might 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 system.
- A unit that doesn’t operate as long also won’t dehumidify the air, which may affect your comfort.
- If your system is too small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the chosen temperature.
Ensuring correct 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 running in sync to keep you comfortable. Load calculation was once based only on square footage, and while that is a portion of the puzzle, there are a host of variables we factor in to find the right products for your home.
