If it’s time to think about an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is imperative in choosing the system that will work best for your house. All homes are unique in their cooling needs. If your system is inappropriately sized, it will decrease your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s explain what goes into a load calculation.
Traditionally, a load calculation was discovered only by looking at the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we consider various other components to find the products that will be the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in Florissant, 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 completes your home. If your system is really small, you’ll have issues keeping your home at the perfect temperature. And just because a system is hefty doesn’t absolutely 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 run as long, an oversized system will regularly warm up and cool down. This results in more wear and tear on the system than need-be.
- It can also decrease effectiveness and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system cycling on and off too much is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
