If it’s time to think about an air conditioner replacement, having an expert perform a load calculation is important in finding the system that will work best for your house. All homes are specific in their cooling needs. If your system is inappropriately sized, it will decrease your comfort and raise your utility bills. Let’s talk about what goes into a load calculation.
Originally, 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 many other components to find the products that will work the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in Pacheco, 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 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 difficulty keeping your home at the perfect temperature. And just because a system is hefty 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 regularly warm up and cool down. This causes more wear and tear on the system than normal.
- It can also reduce efficiency and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system cycling on and off too much is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
