When the time arrives for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a pro is a crucial 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 improperly sized system will negatively impact your comfort, and your utility bills. So what factors into a home’s load calculation?
Our experts take into account a number of factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you will need. We look at things such as: the climate 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 pair you with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always the best. A system that is bigger than necessary may make a number of concerns.
- It could cost you more money to operate.
- 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 unit.
- A unit that doesn’t run as long also fails to dehumidify the air, which might diminish your comfort.
- If your system is too little, 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 be sure 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 piece of the puzzle, there are a number of variables we factor in to find the best products for your home.
