If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is important in choosing the system that will work best for your house. All homes are different in their cooling requirements. If your system is improperly sized, it will decrease your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation.
Traditionally, a load calculation was discovered only by figuring the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we regard various other steps to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in Eastland, the square footage and design of your home, the level of insulation, your roof size and type, the size and location of windows, your home’s sun exposure and your family’s habits and schedule.
We want to help you find the air conditioner replacement that is right for your home. If your system is too small, you’ll have issues keeping your home at the ideal temperature. And just because a system is hefty doesn’t absolutely mean it’s better. Actually, if your system is too big for your home, you could have a lot of problems:
- Because it won’t have to run as long, an oversized system will consistently warm up and cool down. This creates more wear and tear on the system than normal.
- It can also reduce effectiveness and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system cycling on and off too much is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
