When it’s time for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a professional is a crucial step in making sure you’re picking the correct system for your home. Every home has its own individual demands on a cooling system. Installing an inappropriately sized system will hurt 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 your home needs. We look at aspects such as: the climate of your region, 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 higher capacity than necessary may create a host of concerns.
- It may cost you more money to operate.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to run as long so it will constantly be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your unit.
- A unit that doesn’t operate as long also won’t dehumidify the air, which might impact your comfort.
- If your system is too little, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the desired 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 operating 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 number of variables we factor in to find the best products for your home.
