If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is important in choosing the system that will work best for your home. All homes are different in their cooling demands. If your system is inappropriately sized, it will decrease your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s explain 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 regard various other steps to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our team will look at the climate in Middle Georgia, 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 find the air conditioner replacement that fits your home. If your system is too small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the ideal temperature. And just because a system is bigger doesn’t absolutely 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 operate as long, an oversized system will consistently 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 turning on and off too regularly is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
