If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is imperative in finding the system that will work best for your living space. All homes are different in their cooling needs. If your system is inaccurately sized, it will impact your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation.
Traditionally, a load calculation was determined only by looking at the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we consider various other factors to find the products that will work the best for your home. Our professionals will look at the climate in Safford, 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 would love to help you find the air conditioner replacement that completes your home. If your system is too small, you’ll have difficulty keeping your home at the ideal temperature. And just because a system is hefty 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 operate as long, an oversized system will consistently warm up and cool down. This results in more wear and tear on the system than need-be.
- It can also decrease 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.
