When the time comes for an air conditioner replacement, a load calculation determined by a professional is a critical step in making sure you’re choosing the correct system for your home. Every home has its own specific demands on a cooling system. Installing an improperly sized system will negatively impact your comfort, and your utility expenses. So what goes into a home’s load calculation?
Our experts take into account a variety factors when determining the load calculation and the size of system you’ll need. We look at aspects such as: the weather of your area, 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 ideal. A system that is bigger than necessary may generate a host of concerns.
- It could cost you more money to run.
- An oversized system doesn’t have to work as long so it will continually be warming up and cooling down, which causes more wear and tear on your air conditioner.
- A unit that doesn’t work as long also doesn’t dehumidify the air, which might affect your comfort.
- If your system is too little, 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 make sure that your air conditioner, ductwork and registers are all running 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 host of variables we factor in to find the correct products for your home.
