When it’s time for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a pro is a critical step in ensuring you’re choosing the best system for your home. Every home has its own individual demands on a cooling system. Installing an inappropriately sized system will negatively affect your comfort, and your utility costs. So what factors into a home’s load calculation?
Our experts take into account many factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you’ll need. We look at things such as: the weather of your town, square footage of your home, design, insulation levels, roof type, size and location of windows, sun exposure and the habits of and schedule of everyone inside the home.
We want to match you with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always better. A system that is larger than necessary may make a number of concerns.
- It could cost you more money to operate.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to work as long so it will continuously 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 could affect your comfort.
- If your system isn’t big enough, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the desired temperature.
Ensuring appropriate 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 solely on square footage, and while that is a piece of the puzzle, there are a number of variables we factor in to find the correct products for your home.
