If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is imperative in finding the system that will work best for your home. All homes are different in their cooling requirements. If your system is improperly sized, it will impact your comfort and raise your utility bills. Let’s discuss 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 various other components to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our team will look at the climate in Manassas, 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 really small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the desired temperature. And just because a system is bigger doesn’t absolutely mean it’s better. In reality, if your system is too big 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 causes more wear and tear on the system than need-be.
- It can also decrease productivity and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system cycling on and off too often is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
