If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is important in finding the system that will work best for your living space. All homes are different in their cooling demands. 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.
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 consider several other steps to find the products that will work the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in Marshfield, 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 find the air conditioner replacement that is right for 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 necessarily mean it’s better. In fact, 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 creates 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 switching on and off too regularly is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
