When it’s time for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a professional is a crucial step in ensuring you’re picking the right system for your home. Every home has its own specific demands on a cooling system. Installing an incorrectly sized system will hurt your comfort, and your utility bills. So what goes into a home’s load calculation?
Our professionals take into account a number of factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you will need. We look at factors 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 all the people 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 larger than necessary may create a host of concerns.
- It might cost you more money to operate.
- 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 unit.
- A unit that doesn’t run as long also doesn’t dehumidify the air, which may diminish your comfort.
- If your system is too small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the set temperature.
Ensuring proper air flow is the key to your home’s comfort. A professional room by room load calculation will help to make sure that your air conditioner, ductwork and registers are all working in sync to keep you comfortable. Load calculation was once based solely on square footage, and while that is a portion of the puzzle, there are a host of variables we factor in to find the best products for your home.
