If it’s time to decide on an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is important in choosing the system that will work best for your living space. All homes are different in their cooling requirements. If your system is inappropriately sized, it will affect your comfort and raise your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation.
Historically, a load calculation was conducted only by looking at the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we regard many other components to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our professionals will look at the climate in Georgetown, 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 discover the air conditioner replacement that is right for your home. If your system is very small, you’ll have issues keeping your home at the perfect temperature. And just because a system is larger doesn’t absolutely mean it’s better. In fact, if your system is too big for your home, you could have a lot of problems:
- Because it won’t have to function 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 decrease productivity and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system switching on and off too much is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
