If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having a technician perform a load calculation is important in choosing the system that will work best for your home. All homes are unique in their cooling requirements. If your system is inaccurately sized, it will decrease your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s discuss 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 regard various other steps to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our professionals will look at the climate in Chadron, 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 too small, you’ll have difficulty keeping your home at the perfect temperature. And just because a system is bigger doesn’t absolutely mean it’s better. In fact, if your system is too large for your home, you could have a lot of problems:
- Because it won’t have to function as long, an oversized system will regularly warm up and cool down. This creates more wear and tear on the system than need-be.
- It can also reduce productivity and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system turning on and off too often is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
