If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is imperative in picking the system that will work best for your living space. All homes are different in their cooling needs. If your system is improperly sized, it will affect your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s discuss what goes into a load calculation.
Traditionally, a load calculation was determined only by finding the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we regard several other components to find the products that will be the best for your home. Our team will look at the climate in York, 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 want to help you find the air conditioner replacement that is right for your home. If your system is too small, you’ll have issues keeping your home at the ideal temperature. And just because a system is larger doesn’t absolutely mean it’s better. In reality, 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 continuously warm up and cool down. This causes more wear and tear on the system than necessary.
- It can also decrease efficiency and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system switching on and off too often is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
