If it’s time to decide on an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is important in finding the system that will work best for your home. All homes are different in their cooling requirements. If your system is inaccurately sized, it will decrease your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation.
Historically, a load calculation was determined only by figuring the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we regard many other factors to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in Bishop, 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 want to help you discover the air conditioner replacement that is right for your home. If your system is really small, you’ll have issues keeping your home at the ideal temperature. And just because a system is larger doesn’t necessarily 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 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 reduce productivity and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system cycling on and off too regularly is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
