If you are considering purchasing a new air conditioner or taking a closer look at the performance of your existing system, one of the first items to consider is a load calculation.
What exactly does that mean? Essentially, it comes down to making sure that you get an appropriately-sized system for your home. Purchasing the wrong size or type can have many implications from the inability to keep your house cool to working so hard that it decreases its lifespan.
Every home is different; home size, number of windows and type, insulation and even the direction the home faces are key considerations. Bigger isn’t always better. It doesn’t make sense to purchase an air conditioner that is larger than needed for your home. The equipment will cost more and you’ll be paying to operate a system that is more than what you need. Air conditioners also help to reduce humidity levels in the home and an oversized system won’t be able to properly dehumidify the air which could also lead to poor indoor air quality.
You also don’t want a model that is too small and unable to keep up. Not only does this impact the cooling of your home during the warmer seasonal temperatures, but it’ll also make the unit work harder.
With hundreds of different models and sizes, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. Lucky for you, this isn’t something you need to tackle on your own. The Expert team at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing can provide you with a full load calculation assessment on your home. The heating and cooling load calculation takes into account the home’s structure, roof, windows, direction and location to determine the size and type of equipment needed. Any company that doesn’t provide this detailed analysis can’t properly provide an accurate quote for the replacement of your air conditioner or even give you the best more accurate price of a new system.
Not only does this assessment help determine which system is best for you, but it will also help you see the extra savings of high-efficiency products. You may not think to factor in utility costs when considering your budget, but researching more efficient air conditioners and what it can provide will have a positive impact on your family’s budget. Our experts can walk you through what is needed to live comfortably in your home and share some thoughts on how to reduce energy usage through various features available.
