When the time arrives for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a pro is an important step in ensuring you’re choosing the right 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 expenses. So what goes into a home’s load calculation?
Our pros 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 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 pair you with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always better. A system that is bigger than necessary can generate a variety of concerns.
- It might cost you more money to use.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to run 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 work as long also fails to dehumidify the air, which may diminish your comfort.
- If your system is too small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the chosen temperature.
Ensuring proper 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 exclusively on square footage, and while that is a piece of the puzzle, there are a host of variables we factor in to find the best products for your home.
