If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is important in finding the system that will work best for your living space. All homes are specific in their cooling demands. If your system is inaccurately sized, it will decrease your comfort and multiply your utility bills. Let’s explain what goes into a load calculation.
Historically, a load calculation was determined only by looking at the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we include several other factors to find the products that will be the best for your home. Our team will look at the climate in Arlington, 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 would love to help you find the air conditioner replacement that fits 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 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 function as long, an oversized system will regularly warm up and cool down. This results in more wear and tear on the system than necessary.
- It can also minimize effectiveness and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system switching on and off too much is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
