If it’s time to decide on an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is important in finding the system that will work best for your home. All homes are specific in their cooling requirements. If your system is improperly sized, it will decrease your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation.
Historically, a load calculation was conducted only by finding the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we regard several other steps to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our professionals will look at the climate in Monroe, 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 is right for your home. If your system is really small, you’ll have issues keeping your home at the desired temperature. And just because a system is larger doesn’t absolutely mean it’s better. In fact, if your system is too oversized 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 causes more wear and tear on the system than normal.
- It can also minimize efficiency and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system switching on and off too regularly is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
