When it’s time for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a professional is an important step in ensuring you’re selecting the right system for your home. Every home has its own unique demands on a cooling system. Installing an incorrectly sized system will hurt your comfort, and your utility costs. So what plays a role 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 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 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 better. A system that is larger than necessary can generate a number of issues.
- It may cost you more money to run.
- 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 could affect your comfort.
- If your system isn’t big enough, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the chosen 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 portion of the puzzle, there are a host of variables we factor in to find the right products for your home.
