If it’s time to think about an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is imperative in choosing the system that will work best for your house. All homes are specific in their cooling demands. If your system is inaccurately sized, it will affect your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s discuss what goes into a load calculation.
Historically, a load calculation was determined only by figuring the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we consider several other steps to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our professionals will look at the climate in Brandon, 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 aim to help you come across the air conditioner replacement that fits your home. If your system is really small, you’ll have issues keeping your home at the ideal temperature. And just because a system is bigger doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better. Actually, 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 causes more wear and tear on the system than need-be.
- It can also decrease productivity and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system cycling on and off too often is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
