When it’s time for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a professional is a critical step in making sure you’re choosing the right system for your home. Every home has its own specific demands on a cooling system. Installing an incorrectly sized system will negatively affect your comfort, and your utility expenses. So what plays a role into a home’s load calculation?
Our professionals take into account a variety factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you will need. We look at factors such as: the environment 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 all the people inside the home.
We want to pair you with the air conditioner replacement that matches up with your home, and bigger isn’t always the best. A system that is higher capacity than necessary can create a number of problems.
- 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 air conditioner.
- A unit that doesn’t operate as long also won’t dehumidify the air, which may diminish your comfort.
- If your system is too small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the desired 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 only on square footage, and while that is a piece of the puzzle, there are many variables we factor in to find the right products for your home.
