If it’s time to decide on an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is imperative in finding the system that will work best for your living space. All homes are unique in their cooling demands. If your system is inappropriately sized, it will decrease your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s discuss what goes into a load calculation.
Traditionally, a load calculation was determined only by figuring the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we regard many other steps to find the products that will work the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in Greensburg, the square footage and structure 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 come across the air conditioner replacement that fits your home. If your system is too small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the ideal temperature. And just because a system is bigger doesn’t absolutely mean it’s better. In reality, if your system is too large for your home, you could have a lot of problems:
- Because it won’t have to operate as long, an oversized system will regularly warm up and cool down. This results in more wear and tear on the system than necessary.
- It can also reduce efficiency and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system cycling on and off too regularly is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
