If it’s time to think about an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is crucial in finding the system that will work best for your home. All homes are specific in their cooling needs. If your system is inaccurately sized, it will impact your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation.
Originally, a load calculation was conducted only by figuring the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we include several other components to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our team will look at the climate in Wharton, the square footage and structure 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 is right for your home. If your system is too small, you’ll have difficulty keeping your home at the desired temperature. And just because a system is hefty 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 function 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 minimize productivity and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system turning on and off too much is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
