If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having a technician perform a load calculation is imperative 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 impact your comfort and raise your utility bills. Let’s discuss what goes into a load calculation.
Historically, a load calculation was discovered only by finding the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we consider several other components to find the products that will be the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in Carson City, the square footage and build 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 come across the air conditioner replacement that completes your home. If your system is very small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the ideal temperature. And just because a system is larger doesn’t always mean it’s better. Actually, if your system is too oversized for your home, you could have a lot of problems:
- Because it won’t have to operate as long, an oversized system will consistently warm up and cool down. This creates more wear and tear on the system than need-be.
- It can also minimize effectiveness and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system turning on and off too regularly is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
